I have been to Chiang Mai 8 times and never had a better experience with any other tour guide or any other experience. The team are so fun, so safe, so knowledgable the whole experience was once in a lifetime! Could not recommend more, you will not be disappointed had the best time on the ATV going through the jungle learning so much, seeing the most beautiful parts of Thailand and having a blast!! Thanks so much guys, cannot wait to come back and try all your other adventures :)

I have the good fortune to live in Chiang Mai and as such, know all the tour operators. 8 Adventures has no equal in Chiang Mai. The starting point for hiking, kayaking and quad bike driving is SAFETY. The second is the experience itself. 8 Adventures focuses so much on safety and mitigate risk wherever there is one. Quite remarkable standards unlike many of the others that I have used. Then the experience itself is tremendous and you need experienced guides to have a great experience. I have been with Khun Moss (ask for him as he cannot stop smiling!) on two occasions and he goes beyond the call of duty. Indeed, you could not ask for more. For safety and great memories, I always choose 8 adventures.

From start to finish 8Adventures were amazing. Pick up at our hotel was on time and then a short drive to their camp. Their base is well set up and has everything you need for the day. Safety briefings were thorough and understandable, even for the little ones. Very professional and safe activities. Food was outstanding. All in all a very professional and welcoming outfit. They have certainly got it right.

8Adventures provided us with all-inclusive service by picking us up at our office with the air-conditioned shuttle, serving a delicious lunch upon our arrival ( - "excellent!"), then by giving us a full safety briefing and making sure we were well protected by providing us with a full safety kit before we set off on the real adventure. Our 2- hour whitewater rafting sounded like a very long journey, but the time went by so fast and was filled with lots of fun. Some of the sections gave us adrenaline rushes, some of them were surprisingly relaxing and calm. Every second of this 10 km rafting trip was breathtaking scenery; Spectacular flora and fauna, bright blue skies and bubbling white waters. At first, the surging white rapids looked a little intimidating for some of us, but once we were all sat in our places, paddles in hands, we felt confident because there were so many safety professionals around us. Each group had its own trained leader from 8Adventures, and we felt like they truly knew every single rock in the river. It was an amazing day! Thank you to Eric and his crew for the excellent service. Best regards, CLBS Ltd.
