“Amazing Times and Great Company”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by Chloe94 (1 review written)

I traveled with Xtreme Gap to Asia in June 2014. It was an eye opening experience to say the least! The trip was genuinely incredible. Initially I was concerned about going on my own, and my parents had similar worries too. Fortunately, I think I found the right company to book with. There were loads of other travellers on the trip Xtreme Thailand Experience and we all seemed to gel well together in a short space of time. Actually the the things you do on the trip make this very easy, as you… Read Full Review

“Xtreme Gap Year Review: Thailand Experience. It Was Good.”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by Jamarionj386 (1 review written)

So my review of Xtreme Gap Years Thailand Experience… here were go. In general, it was very good. Somethings could have been improved upon but overall I had a great trip. Before I left I had a lot of advice and support from the Xtreme Gap office. I spoke with them on skype a few times and they were very quick with coming back to my emails. This was the first time I have been travelling so I was a bit nervous about the trip and especially worried because I was going alone. Debby at Xtreme Gap… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2014 by soFinch412 (1 review written)

Spent 4+ weeks in the fitness camp in Thailand. My main aim in coming here was to lose some weight and it did not disappoint. I lost 9 Kilos in 4 weeks, improved my cardio and overall strength. The camp was great offering cross fit/ body fit/ beach workouts and all forms of mma/ boxing etc. It is easy to make friends here as there are expats from all over the world. The meal plan was perhaps the only negative mainly because the menu never changed and it became a bit boring/ repetitive after a… Read Full Review

“Venezuela traveling classroom”

Written on: 03/03/2014 by Lisa1994 (1 review written)

I joined the Venezuela traveling classroom for three months and they turned out to be the best 3 months of my life. I had a lot of fun, met the most amazing people and besides that learned Spanish too. The staff was very helpful and caring. The lodge in which we slept was really nice, located right next to the beach. Perfect to relax again after one of the activities: kayaking trip, living in the jungle, abseiling from a waterfall, wakeboarding, hiking, salsa lessons etc. Overall a really good… Read Full Review

“Life-changing experience!”

Written on: 03/03/2014 by Gbert22 (1 review written)

Hi everyone, It's been more than a year since I participated at the Aussie outback experience offered by Xtremegap. It was definitely one of the best weeks during my whole stay in Australia. The feeling of trust they gave me before leaving was excellent, and the schedules, programs and additionol information were a pleasant welcome. Xtremegap does know how to organize your entire trip, from arrival in Sydney till the end of the course. Such a good thing cause at an age of 18 on the other… Read Full Review

“Amazing sailing training Whitsundays”

Written on: 03/03/2014 by Kjeltve (1 review written)

G'day everyone, I've been to Australia recently and booked something with Xtreme Gap ahead. Organised it one month before and everything was ready for me at the other side of the world. It was important for me to have something planned ahead on my backpack trip, just to have something to look forward to. Arrived in Airlie Beach, the contact was really easy and service was quick, they gave me a map with instructions and were very kind. Than the training started on these awesome maxi's. Got… Read Full Review

“Muay Thai in Koh Tao”

Written on: 03/03/2014 by sjdw1234 (1 review written)

The original journey out to Koh Tao is really long but it is the same for everyone and doing it with extreme gap is pretty easy as it is all sorted out for you. Koh Tao is the most amazing island. the training is good however there are a few things to bear in mind. the trainers dont speak much english which isnt a problem as such but what it does mean is that you can only learn so much. if you are doing this trip to become a serious fighter i think there is better stuff out there at specific… Read Full Review

“Venezuela Travelling Classroom and South America bus pass”

Written on: 02/03/2014 by nikki.trailor (2 reviews written)

BEST four months of my life! I had already heard good things about Xtreme Gap from other travellers and right from the offset I found them very helpful with any initial worries and queries (of which there were a lot). I started On the Venezuela Travelling Classroom 5 week option which included Spanish lessons, salsa lessons, treks, abseiling, kayaking, snorkelling, and jungle survival. I showered in waterfalls, slid down steep hillsides after a particularly muddy trek, paddled alongside river… Read Full Review

“La tomatina Festival”

Written on: 14/09/2013

The first time X-treme gap went to La tomatina and it was f-ing mental. We had a beautiful apartment in the centre of Valencia with three bedrooms and two balconies. The first night out was the pre La Tomatina party in all the bars in valencia and was meant to get to know all the people that would go to the festival. It was a fun night and everyone picked up/out their victims for the next day at La Tomatina. The next morning around 6 we went with the bus to the small town were La Tomatina was… Read Full Review

“South East Asia...Very good.”

Written on: 31/08/2013 by HelenaMckenzie (1 review written)

I have just come back from a trip to south east asia, i was on the "round the world south east asia" programme from Xtreme Gap Year. I can genuinely state that this was the best thing I have ever done. Genuinely life changing. Xtreme Gap was very helpful and professional in helping me organise my gap year, they had plenty of suggestions for what to do an where to do it and to be honest I think my trip worked out much better for it. They genuinely knew everything I asked them. The best part… Read Full Review

I am just back from the Thailand Adventure trip and I want to go back!! I book the trip with Xtreme Gap and it was awesome. They helped me very well with the planning of the trip. They gave answers to all my questions and gave good advice. Before I left they let me know how many people joint the trip and I got a information package. I also met some other travelers who went to Thailand on the same date as me on their traveler’s network. They picked me up on the airport of Bangkok en they… Read Full Review

“It was so well organized”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by SarahDUS (1 review written)

I had the most amazing time of my life in Thailand. Enjoyed the 4 weeks sooo much. It was so well organized and I have decided to have another gap year and travel around more of South East Asia with Xtreme. I am currently completing my gold d of e award and wanted to use my experience to cover my residential section. It just has to match the criteria that I gained something during my experience and that I didnt know anyone before I started, which I didnt. I was envolved in the clay house… Read Full Review

Very professional and a lot of fun I had a great time with Xtreme Gap Year. This is the first time I had been to Thailand, or travelling in general and booking with Xtreme Gap was a great thing for me to do. It was a lot of fun and I got to do things that I definitely would not have considered before, this only added to my experience because I had some really good experiences and met some great people in the process. Everything was very well-organised, well run the accommodation was… Read Full Review

Absolutely loved the Xtreme Thailand Experience with Xtreme. 4 weeks of culture, drinking, parties and beach. Met loads of new friends, we were with about 25 xtremers on the trip, and we also all got a t shirt and did a shoot for the new website of xtreme gap. I did my open water too! So now I am a diver. Thanks Xtreme… Read Full Review

“Superb. Would travel with them again.”

Written on: 26/04/2013 by Abigail1988 (1 review written)

To all those wondering if booking an Xtreme Gap trip is worthwhile my answer is definitely do it. i decided to book with them as their trips seem more exciting than the rest of the gap year companies and athough I could not find many reviews online I was won over by the originality of the itinerary. The excellent customer service also gave me confidence to book with them also. Once I booked they were very helpful and provided me with plenty of support before I went, which was a good thing as I… Read Full Review

Im now home from the trip of a life time, and ive now written this review of my trip for Xtreme Gap to say how happy i have been with the experience In July-August 2012 I arrived in Malapascua to complete my EFR, Rescue Diver and DMT with Xtreme Gap. I was still reasonably new to diving, being only AOW since 2010, but I wanted to learn and gain more experience in diving.

Written on: 24/01/2011

I did the Xtreme Thailand experience with a mate and just got back off 6 fantastic weeks in South East Asia. I really enjoyed it and it was a great way to start our backpacking trip.
We spent time in 3 different places which was cool as we got to see different parts of Thailand. My fav was Koh Tao, but I also liked singburi too. The Elephant week was pretty cool, and I really liked the temple stay as well.

Xtreme Gap surprised me somewhat, the customer service was excellent, even tho I had… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2010

I was torn between South Africa and Thailand, but I chose Thailand as the flights were cheap. So I then went on the Xtreme Thailand experience which I have to say was amazing! Thailand was such a cool place to visit, I had not been before and did not really want to go on my own, so basically I had a choice of chancing it or finding a group to go out with.

The organisation was as I expected, everything that was supposed to happen did go according to plan, the staff were really friendly and the… Read Full Review
