TESTIMONIALS

Eastern Europe

December 2018

I highly recommend The Backpacker Co experience, particularly for people who are planning to travel international for the first time and solo! You would feel safe ,and have a bunch of people around to entertain you . The travel, stay and activities were well planned which gave us time to wander around worry-free .Even if you like your own company, they give enough time to explore and do things your own way! I ended up making a lot of good memories. :)

Italy France Spain

November 2018

It was the first time my family sent me on an international trip with my friends. The trip was so well planned and executed, that in such a short span of time we covered most of it.
Paris was beautiful for its Eiffel Tower and the hop on hop off bus.
In Barcelona, the tapas tour was amazing and the guide was so enthusiastic! The bike tour was also beautiful.
Rome was amazing for it's ancient places. 
The Backpacker Co had the best places to stay for us ! They were helpful throughout the trip.

Backpack to Japan

August 2018

Planning a trip can be stressful, especially if all your plans tank at the very last minute. I had mapped out a fun trip for myself in August (to celebrate my birthday) with a friend and things didn't go as planned - said friend chickened out last minute. But I was pretty determined to travel, even if it meant doing so on my own. Since Japan has always been at the top of my bucket list, I decided to give The Backpacker Co a shot, primarily because I couldn't be fussed with planning. Now, when I look back, I'm convinced they did so much more than just "plan a trip". While all the logistic bits were smooth sailing, I'm convinced it was the people I was with and interacted with made this trip so memorable. Our guides made sure we got to experience it all (even if it meant running in the rain or stopping at every vending machine in the hunt for obscure Fanta flavours). The itineraries were flexible, allowing me to do my own thing on certain days, which I really appreciated. It's safe to say that my birthday was all sorts of perfect and my first solo trip was definitely special, thanks to The Backpacker.Co!

Tale of Three Cities

September 2018

Being my first solo trip I was a bit skeptical about the whole trip. But The Backpacker Co team made it really easy throughout the trip! Overall, it was an amazing experience, going to a whole new place, meeting new people, and learning about the culture of the cities. The city tours were very well planned out with locals showing us around and explaining the history. Superb recommendations for the free days, and comfortable hostel accommodations. Surely looking forward to traveling again with them!

They are highly professional and well informed. The hostels which they select are also nice. I have done two trips with them and would recommend them to anyone who is planning to travel the 'backpacker' way.

They aslo connected me with fellow backpackers on the group. This helped reduce my anxiety about travelling solo. I would like to travel with them again. Thanks team !!

Greek Stories

May 2018

The ultimate Aegean island hopping as my first experience with The Backpackerco was worth a shot. Although, backpacking to Europe was always on my mind, I was a bit too skeptical on trying the hostel/ dorm accommodation. Like I believe there's always a first time - You guys were beyond expectations in giving me a mix of experiences - Be it the hostel life at Athens; cycladic studio apartment at the Mykonos or that matter Beach club experience at the IOS. The itinerary was kept light with space to accommodate some local experiences. I do have some amazing memories of roaming and partying like "The locals" with presence of the virtual guidance by the team :) . Their daily excerpts not only kept us on our toes but also made sure we do not miss our ferry to the next port. Would love to chase the northern lights with you guys if you have some unique trips in the offering. Until then... Efcharisto

June 2018

First out-of-country, first solo trip, needless to say, I was pretty over the moon! A friend recommended The Backpacker Co as the Backpacking specialist, and boy was she right ! I decided to visit one of the prettiest countries, Ireland . The Backpacker Co was with me every step of the way - pre, during and post the trip . I was a pretty difficult and fussy customer, but they handled all my queries very well . Needless to say, I had a very smooth journey throughout. The group I was traveling with was super fun, and I ended up making friends for life there ! The tips and information given to me as a first-time traveler came in super-handy, and I was able to enjoy stress-free. They also offered me 24/7 assistance on the trip .A big big thank you to The Backpacker Co team, and I look forward to having many many more trips with them :)

The Backpacker Co is the perfect planner for an unconventional trip. Their plans give you the flexibility to explore the city as per your convenience and the activities organized by them at each of the destinations are a great way to interact with like-minded travelers.
I had a great experience overall!

Prague and Budapest

September 2017

I recently travelled to Prague and Budapest. Was my FIRST EVER trip completely solo. I got team Backpacker co. to chart out a travel plan and the activities.

I cannot elucidate enough about their professionalism. They made a list of what i was looking to do and accordingly made a fabulous itinerary. Every activity that was recommended was super fun and the same time safe for a solo traveler .
I was in touch with them throughout my trip over whatsapp and it really felt as if the Backpacker co. had my back !
This was truly a memorable experience! Thank you so much for everything!

Tale of 3 cities

September 2017

Heyyyy! I went on my first solo trip with the help of The Backpacker Co. They helped me with my itinerary and bookings for hostels and activities in each of the 5 cities I visited. Very prompt in replies and very helpful in planning my entire trip. It was amazing how I got a WhatsApp msg before every journey and activity I had there. I went for their travelers meet up some months back, I have to say this - they didn't sell their company at all. People who came there shared stories and networked for their next travel. It's been a dream to travel solo and these guys made it happen for me! Thanks a ton for everything.

 

#Whydoboring is going to be my travel chant for a while! I'd strongly recommend everybody to check these guys out!

I have been traveling with you for over a decade and totally love you! The Backpacker Co plan trips basis your need and it is a fairly open itinerary with enough time to do what you want to do! It's unlike others wherein they just fill your schedule with 20 things to do, but they do plan on things which interest you! Open to suggestions and help you with everything! Highly recommend!

I did my trip to Eastern Europe In May 2017 with The Backpacker co. It was my first solo trip and I am glad to say that It exceeded my expectations.It was well planned and choice of hostels are the best. We were a group of 23 people and from beginning to end it was well planned and executed perfectly. I met with awesome people and I cherished their company as a co-traveler. It was one of my best trips and sweet memories of this trip remain forever. Thank you very much for the mesmerizing moments of my life.

It is perfect for solo travellers who have never backpacked before. I went with a dear girl friend and it was an amazing experience!

I did think that the Value For Money factor could be much better on finding out what hostels & intercity travel cost , however i would have still chosen to go for this trip all over again for the amazing group of people we met and the super energy.

April 2017

I had been planning a trip to Europe for the last 1.5 years, looked at many itineraries, packages but I wasn't really convinced with anything before I found out about The Backpacker Co. I would rate them 5 stars on everything starting from pre travel research, planning and the actual execution of the trip.The trip wouldn't have been a success without our travel manager/buddy, Saumya who ensured everything was proper, she is a super fun person and now my go-to travel advisor for all future travels!
