My boyfriend and I had this tour recommended to us by a friend and it was worth every cent. I would say to anyone who isn’t an experienced motorbike driver to just get on the back of the tour guides as the terrain is very rough/ unpredictable but it allows you to concentrate on the views and gorgeous surroundings and let the guide worry about the road. From start to finish the guys showed us a real authentic Thai experience from the gorgeous views, different farms where you could see the farmers at work and took us to local restaurants where they ordered actual traditional Thai food for us to try. They brought us to various waterfalls completely off the beaten track where it was just us. Along the way they would stop and give us an insight to different farms or info about nature and the fruits and veg while giving us some fresh fruit straight from the tree. They also brought us to a local Thai family which lived in a bamboo house without electricity. The children tried clothes on us and we talked about differences between our cultures. After the first long day we headed back to the tour guides parents house. They let us chill out in their hot spring pool while they prepared a beautiful Thai dinner for us. Along with food and desert they gave us some rice alcohol which was interesting. We stayed on his parents rubber farm in a little wooden house. The following day we headed to more waterfalls for a swim, we got to watch a traditional Asian festival and then saw the twin pagodas. We also were brought to the highest point in Thailand (doi inthanon). The tour guides were very informative, taught us a lot about the different cultures throughout Thailand and showed us the most beautiful and spectacular views. I would recommend this to anyone coming to Chiang Mai.

I strongly recommend SDT if you are in for an uncomplicated offroad driving challenge. Besides Nat, Num and their team being very kind persons they are very experienced drivers who know the area between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai very well, like the back of their hands. We participated the trip with seven, most of them experienced, drivers. Five of the Honda CRF250L where brand new at the start of the trip :) Perfect bikes to handle the most difficult slopes. Along the way Nat and Num had a good feeling for our skill-level and adjusted the level of difficulty accordingly. Nat and his team made us and our family members really feel at home with their attentive treatment and delicious food. After this you don't want something different ;)

I went to Thailand with family. A part of the family went with Nat. Nat was in charge of the motortour. I went with the children and wifes on the same tour but with a jeep. We saw the same amazing viewpoints but went with another vehicle. Our chaffeur was Num, he entertained us with his jokes during our trip. He also told us many stories about Chang Mai. The crew of SDT is very caring so if u need something or you have a question.. No need to worry. They will take your imput seriously. The trip they provide has viewpoints you won't see when you travel with your own schedule. The trip is entertaining for any age.

Our trip with “something different tours” was very good! Excellent!! New motorcycles, good food, nice places we drive. Sometimes on the asfalt. Sometimes off-road, going to waterfalls, bamboo rafting. Everything was organized very good. Also when we ask for something, no problem, they do t for us. We enjoyed the trip and i can say everyone who have the motorcycle license to do this trip. You will enjoy your holiday very good.
