Description:

Next Step Thailand, previously known as Travel with Joe, was founded by...

Next Step Thailand, previously known as Travel with Joe, was founded by Samart (Joe), a native of Chiang Mai who has 10 years experience in Thailand's tourism industry. With licensed, English-speaking local staff we provide a wide range of adventure and cultural enrichment to meet your travel needs. Each one of our staff holds special knowledge or skills in areas such as Thai cooking, ethnic hilltribe customs, Buddhist beliefs and more. We can customize your tour package to include exposure to any of our unique experiences.

At Next Step Thailand, all activities and tours support the local communities by visiting only locally owned businesses (such as elephant villages or hilltribes), ensuring that your investment benefits the local people. We also donate 15% of all profits to support community projects, such as Share the Dream Project, which brings educational programs to hilltribe villages.

Next Step Thailand supports the three strands of sustainability - social, economic and environmental. By supporting fair-trade practices in the community and paying our staff fairly, we have built a friendly, reliable and knowledgeable team who will go the extra mile to make your visit special. We also aim to be as environmentally responsible as possible and do everything in our power to ensure our operations do not have a detrimental impact on the environment.

Bun (pronounced Boon) met us at our hotel on the morning that we started this adventure and was our fearless leader for the next 36 hours. We enjoyed the explanation of all things Thai from Bun as well as the in depth history and stories. His explanation of Buddhism was wonderfully appreciated when we were at one of the temples...

My wife and I did the 5-day trek in the Doi Inthanon national park with La as our guide. It was an amazing experience - we spent the days trekking in the jungle and forest, stopping by waterfalls to cook and bathe, learning how to cook meals inside bamboo and leaves, sharing meals and staying with the local Karen villagers,...

We just returned from Thailand, and one the biggest highlights was the two-day Lanna adventure trip with Next Step Thailand. We had an amazing guide, Saboon (he goes by Boon). He arrived on time at our hotel, was very attentive, had a good sense of humor and was very knowledgeable about the local culture, possible tourist preferences, nature surrounding us... More

My boyfriend and I went on the two day adventure in March of 2016 and had an amazing experience with Next Step Thailand. I was impressed on how much adventure we were able to pack into such a short period of time - waterfalls, cycling, rafting, elephant riding, trekking, village visit, cooking, etc. Spicy Villa (the overnight accommodations) was unreal...

We had some anxiety about dedicating three days of our trip, but the experience greatly exceeded our expectations. It was well organized, informative, and most important of all, fun. Seriously, it was great from front-to-back. Our guide went above and beyond for the entire time and we really enjoyed his kindness, knowledge, patience, and friendly personality.

Just came back from a amazing two day track with Next Step. After plenty of research we choose next step. Super communicative and within a day we were booked and set. We have had terrible jet lag and our guide Sam was so understanding and accommodating. We had planned to trek a lot but since we were so tired he... More

The tour guides from Next Step are some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable people you can meet in Thailand. It is a well organised company who have plenty to offer, personally I had a guided tour to many different untouched waterfalls, I stayed a night in an original bamboo hut in Kung Puy village and was taught how to...
