I travelled in a Group of 14 people (including 5 under 10 kids) in Thailand in Genuary. The time we spent in the Chang Mai was an absolute highlight and big parto of it was due to the excellent Guide Narong and the Green Trail Organizations: the excursions were various, very well organized and all defenetly worth. Elephants, kayaking, Palong Villave were my personal top picks. But again, the wise and knolegable wave of Narong was inspiring and made the difference! I defenetly recomend the Organization and Narong in particular. Hope to go back to those beautiful land!

We had a wonderful experience with our guider Dui, we saw beautiful places, discovered a lot of precious information on the villages we visit but also on all the wildlife. The cooking is really delicious and do not worry about quantities, it is all the time perfect (and we eat both a lot!!!) We were lucky because alone with the guider... I think we will never forget it! Do not hesitate if you want to live a "real" life experience in Thailand!!! I would recommend it to all my friends/family :-)

We went on the 4 night Palong Villages Trek in November 2017, and it was a good time to go (no rain). Our Guide (Mr Chang) had decades of experience leading these treks, could remember when there were tigers in the mountains, and was easily the fittest of the 3 of us. He took us over several mountains, true explorer style, machete in hand hacking away at the growth so we could make trail. You need to be in reasonable shape for this. Beautiful scenery, this is the real Thailand. Rice fields, thick bamboo forests, streams. Our Guide took us to the villages at the end of each day, where he cooked for us delicious northern cuisine and would teach you how to do it. The villages are in transition, the modern world is encroaching, but going by foot you feel you are discovering something new. You visit the Karen, Lakhi, and Palong peoples each with their own culture. There is also a visit to a local school, and an opportunity to thresh rice by and which was an eye-opener. At the end, we were tired, but more than a little sad to be going.

our guide and driver were a great couple of characters, Wanai (guide) had so many interesting things to share with us which made the long journey seem to fly by.

It was a non stop experience which was so worth the effort and cost.
