Hi Russel, this perhaps depends on how old or experienced you are: Thailand is a very easy place to discover though, even on your own.
Both of these companies have a good reputation and you'll have a good time with either of them. almost 8 years ago
ive travelled with intrepid before maybe4 years ago now but the tour was very well organised takes the hasstle out of booking hotels and transport, plus you see and do things that i think you wouldnt normally do if you did a self tour such as the homestays etc also for the price you stay at some pretty decent hotels along the way, as well as the small group sizes of people your age, you really get to know the others i had a fab time defo one of the highlights of my round the world trip.
however i am taking my second around the world trip at the end of this year and i have a friend who has recommended Gadventures.com similar to intrepid same kind of routes but cheaper, so ive booked and am giving their discover bangkok to bali trip a try in november. its about 400 pound cheaper for similar route so for me second time round this is good price just hope its as good as last time.
hope this helps
