We had an incredible time on our tour. Sutat Boonsom and Dai were just incredible. I can't say enough good things about them. They took excellent care of us, had amazing attitudes and really made our experience something special. Absolutely everything went great.

In June 2016 we made a wonderful and highly interesting trip from Chiang Mai to the Golden Triangle. Tod, our guide, and Gap, his driver, made a perfect job. Tod gave us so many insights in the culture, nature and history of Thailand. So for us it was the perfect start for our holiday in Thailand. The trip was very... More

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.
