About Good Morning Thailand Tours: Eco Treks and City Cycling Tour
Welcome to our nature friendly designed, ecologically sensitive tribal trekking in the beautiful Mae Hong Son area that will take to a journey to the magnificent beauties and cultural wealth of The Deep North Jungle breathtaking landscapes of Thailand. Our treks are guided by the most uplifting, experienced guides and they are against animal exploitation. If you would like to participate in a real deep jungle trekking experience and know more about everything in a clear and fun way. Having seen the commercial mainstream way most companies are running the trekking activities (including elephants and tribal exploitation) we decided to take a different road and offer a genuine completely ecological experience to our customers that goes together and supports the natural environment rather than harming it. We choose areas quite far from the mainstream trekking path. We believe in a small and trustworthy business focus on customers feedback rather than a profit machine.You are welcome

My brother and I (25 and 23 years old from Australia) did this trek in January this year. We had an amazing time - varied terrains and fantastic views; friendly and knowledgable guides in Ann and her father; a culturally insightful and welcoming homestay; and simple yet substantial food provided. It was the highlight of our trip to Thailand, and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nature-based, culturally illuminating activity of moderate difficulty, slightly off the beaten track! :)

We went on the two day Mae Hong Son trek with Ann and her father, who were fantastic guides. Ann had lots of interesting information about the area, its people, and the nature, and both were very patient and helpful with us throughout. We felt very well looked after throughout our homestay in the village. As others have mentioned, wear the right footwear!

I took this tour for research purposes (I am a novelist) and rather spur of the moment. I'd not planned on doing it before coming to Thailand so it was a bit of a struggle to get the things I needed. I was also sick two days before going, so I was still a bit weak. So I struggled with the trek. But I would do it all again (and plan to, with my husband). This is not a stroll in the park with wide, "safe" paths and casual chatting - most of the time, you need to save your breath. But our tour guide, Tiger, was absolutely wonderful - knowledgeable, funny, and as accommodating as he could possibly be to my struggles. I learned so much! Perhaps most importantly, I learned what kind of shoes one needs for trekking so that I will be more prepared next time. Running shoes are great if you want to cut down on the foot pain (I only have one blister and my feet aren't sore at all; others had very sore feet). However, if they have no traction, LEAVE THEM AT HOME! I lost count of the number of times I fell (once into a muddy creek, at least 4-5 times on loose dirt/leaves) simply because my running shoes could not grip. Ideally, you'll want to take your most comfortable hiking/army boots and be prepared that they may end up very muddy, even in the dry season. I'll say it again for those, like me, who have never done trekking: This is NOT a walk in the park. If your ten-year-old jogs with you and leaves you in the dust, then by all means bring him along. But if your partner will complain about being head-to-toe dirty and dripping sweat, leave them to enjoy a massage in Chiang Mai while you go explore. But do explore... because there's a tremendous amount to see and even coming from someone whose bruises have bruises, this was an amazing experience!

Trekked with 2 teenage daughters in south Mae Hong Son. Trip was exactly as expected and advertised. Guide is the lovely Ann who is clearly at ease with the trekking and the local villagers. Dad is a cutie, following along with his machete. A few things to know. The 3 hour drive is in a dual cab van with open bench seating not a mini bus so a slightly rough ride for westerners used to car seats. Roads are fine. Food is basic but nice and very substantial. We walked about 22km over the 2 days. It included some steep climbs for the reward of magnificent valley views. Proper trekking shoes are better than sandshoes, if you have them, because you cross streams and need some grip for the climbs. We stayed in a local home, sat with family while they cooked the evening meal. Definitely saw their way of life but no communication other than some basic questions through Ann. Sleep close together in one room and annex. We slept pretty well on bamboo floor on blankets / doona. They use a different local home in the village each trek to share the economic benefit around, which seems good. As usual with these treks the highlight was visiting the village school to see teachers and students making the best of their limited resources. Trek is well isolated but never that far from civilisation if there was any kind of problem. It really was a Tourist Free Zone - we came across no other trekkers, only 2 people who had found the swimming waterfall we enjoyed near the very end of the trek. The “price” for this isolation is the 3 hour drive each way but for us it was worth it. Our impression is that this company is small, genuine, local people who are trying hard to deliver an authentic experience for travellers. Don’t go with them if you are mobility impaired or looking for a drinking night in the jungle. Do go if you want a rewarding experience with good people.

We chose Good Morning Thailand Tours after looking for a local ethical trekking organizer. Ann and her father took us on a great 2 day trek in the Mae Hoe Song area walking along rice-paddies in the jungle and to view-points. The group was great and Ann often stopped for explanations. The trek was varied and just as difficult as what we had asked for (would never have found it ourselves). The homestay was just as authentic as is was simple. We had a great time participating in preparing the meal around the fireplace. Next day we had breakfast with omelet cooked in bamboo. We could hear the gibbons, but not see them. The had a refreshing shower at the waterfall before heading back to Chiang Mai. We had no disappointments and felt great dealing with Ann who is also a partner in the company.
