A walk through the forest, sleeping in Karen Village and very... More

Excellent range of mountain bike trails experienced. Appropriate bike safety and mechanics provided. Guides were excellent , safety orientated and great fun. White water rafting and zip line companies used were very professional and had highest safety standards.

The half day trekking was boring with no much highlight as what was originally promised. A lot of uphill climb, little or no much sights. No waterfall, no bridges, no nothing. Only highlight was the 2 dogs that trek along with the group.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us; we are disappointed to find that you felt the tour was not worth the money as most of our clients say the complete opposite.

We fully enjoyed our private day trip from Chiang Mai to Doi Inthanon. Our guide, Bird, was outstanding with his knowledge and willingness to cater to the itinerary we planned. The views from Doi Inthanon were spectacular particularly when we hiked with a local village guide. Stopping at the Karan village was quick but worth it as we purchased a... More
