Me and my fiance booked trekking and ATV. Booking and correspondence over what's app was prompt and easy. Pick up was on time. We did a trek to a waterfall and the guide (I think his name was MT) gave us loads of info about local plants and environment. He also took us to quieter spots to relax/photograph when the popular spots were busy until crowds passed.
Lunch was also quick and tasty.
Our second activity was ATV (quad biking) I was under confident and after the practice track the staff offered me a guide (thank you tang!) to ride with me and help which made the experience so much more enjoyable for me (and my fiance who could enjoy his ride more knowing I was safe and looked after). The route and time spent on the ATV was really good in terms of enjoyment and value for money. You get the advertised 40km including a stop off watching elephants and the atv are well maintained and reliable so you can really enjoy them, protective gear and helmets that fit all sizes are provided.
The return journey home was a bit long but I think this is because another group had a dinner reservation so their drop off was prioritised and the traffic in Chiang Mai of an evening was heavy with the night markets in full swing when we arrived.
A brilliant day and would recommend to anyone looking for some adventure on their trip! Thank you all at 8 adventures x

I did the full day at 8adventure doing the WhiteWater Rafting and the ATV ride. I LOVED both activities ESPECIALLY because of the tour guides. We had Deer (Dear?) as our rafting 'captain' he was hilarious, he kept the energy high the whole time and was really playful and fun. The white water rafting actually wasn't as intense as I thought, but the length of the ride was long and we saw heaps of elephants on the side of the streams as well as having a few chances to jump in the water and flow next to the boat. Still a few little adrenaline rushing points. The ATV was my favourite as that was a little more intense than I thought it would be. The guides definitely help you if you were a beginner though. Was such a rush riding up and down an intense track that led all the way up to this beautiful village. We stopped at a homestay and the view was IMMACULATE. You also get a chance to chat with locals and suss the homestays up there which we will definitely be coming back to next time. Really loved the energy from this tour as they were so easy going, supportive and funny. The meals and drinks in-between were also great 👏🏼 thank YOU 8adventures 🥰 only little thing that happened was the white water rafting and ATV for switched around due to the bikes not being ready in the morning. This turned out to be better anyway as we got to ride through the sunset and see elephants at the end of day. So ended up better anyway 👏🏼🙏🏽

To be really honest I read many bad review on these events and I myself is 100% sceptical . But was I so so wrong.

The atv was so fun that I tot I might buy one set for myself to keep going

The white water rafting team are so fun that makes this whole experience immersive fun. The water level though not at all time high (the guide was saying it could go 2 more meter high) but the water is still brutally fast. The adrenaline rush when we were crashed by the forces of water was sooooo high I just wish it will continue.

Though all good things do comes to an end, this could only be the beginning for me to partake in more 8adventures programs.

We went on the ATV tour. Picked up from our hotel in Chiang Mai then a 50minute drive to the mountains & activity centre. Easy to understand instructions and training around the onsite ATV course to get used to handling the quad bike. All safety gear is provided. You do need to wear old trainers as they will get wet & dirty during the tour. Our group had 10 people & there were four instructors out with us as the group does get split up on the tour with faster & slower riders. We stopped to see the elephants in the sanctuary & rode our quads in the river - great fun! After visiting the elephants & photo opportunities we then had an off road hill climb to a high retreat in the mountains were you could buy drinks and have a toilet break, & again more stunning photo opportunities. Then a ride back down hill to the centre for a good lunch provided by the staff. All in all an excellent experience well worth the money - highly recommend if you want to see the countryside off the beaten track.

This was a fabulous tour! We loved the guides and had such a blast. It’s about a 1.5 hour drive to the site, and then you get to spend 2.5 hours on the water, each person in a boat with a personal guide who can do a lot of the hard turning for you. We would highly recommend to anyone who loves watersports and needs to cool off in Chiang Mai!

I did a combo tour with 8 Adventures, starting with the ATV tour in the morning followed by the jungle trekking tour in the afternoon. Both tours were very well organised and I had a nice, delicious Thai lunch in between too! The ATV tour was brilliant, going through the jungles and beside a river where we saw some elephants from the elephant sanctuary on the other side. Them we went up a mountain to take in a view of the beautiful landscape from a local village with a nice coffee break. Then after lunch, I trekked into the deep jungle lead by a guide besides a river before reaching a big waterfall where I took a dip in! A big thank you to the guides on both tours, they were very friendly and knowledgeable and I recommend these tours to anyone who wants some adventure during their time in Chiang Mai.

Well organised. Staff contacted in advance for reminder of arrangement such as transport and what to bring. Friendly staff and well trained. The recused team are professional and assured us for our safety, even first timer like us feeling secured and trustworthy. Strongly recommend to go for the 10KM water rafting, it was really fun and excited. You won’t regret it! The meal included was delicious too. I had my complimentary photos taken by the staff. Really appreciate it! I’ll definitely come back again and recommend to more people. Thank you 8Adventures, see you again.

My experience with 8Adventures Whitewater was nothing short of spectacular. Our expert guides ensured that every rapid was a thrill. And with the company’s obvious commitment to professionalism, I felt secure while immersed in the experience.

Our adventure concluded with a delightful meal that hit the spot (try their homemade chili sauce), capturing the essence of a well-rounded journey that combined adrenaline, relaxation, and community. The excellent and affordable photography (optional) provided me with keepsakes of unforgettable moments. I left the peaceful and lovely setting with reluctance, accompanied by the warm memory of the two friendly, well-behaved dogs that added a special touch to the day. Every aspect of the experience was five-star worthy!

I did the trekking and ATV experience and it was really once in a lifetime experience. ATV through the Chiang Mai landscape and Elephant Sanctuary was truly one of a kind and the team complimented on my ATV skills too as I'm very fond and it wasn't my first time. It's a slightly challenging one as I took the 3 hour track which is their most advanced track so it's not really recommended for beginners given I saw one of my fellow ATV riders not able to manage well but I had a blast so if you're a beginner you can pick an easier track. I had a blast personally.
