    A very interesting trip. Guide was very knowledgeable and the pace was very nice except I would have liked more time at Doi Inthanon park. Lunch that was included was tasty and I enjoyed the company of the others in the van.

    This was an incredible experience, I had a fantastic time. The elephants were friendly, the staff was friendly, I had an amazing guide (Wan!!!) and we were provided a meal of Pad Thai, watermelon, pineapple and plenty of water.

    Did some hiking, some a temple, went to a waterfall and ended with coffee and tea. I would recommend this to anyone: families, couples, solo. Hiking wasn't too difficult, if you have trouble with stairs, there are a bit of those going both up, but mostly downhill. There is a local woman to assist.

    Affordable and so so so fun!!!!
    Took all day and I came back fulfilled and plenty tired !!

    One in a lifetime experience, well organised and incredible fun....

    Never have I ever been so up close to Elephants, it totally changed all my childhood zoo informed ideas about them.

    This is an incredible experience and a really special memory, set in lovely grounds with helpful and fun staff.

    The Elephants are clearly happy, well looked after and would highly recommend this trip.

    The guides and the experience itself were amazing!! We were there with 2 kids of 12 and 16, they both really enjoyed it, and had a blast in the kart!
    The only remarks are that it takes a really long time to get there ( about 1hr), the road is in the mountains so it can make you a bit sick and frightened at some point ( very steep). And I would say that the stop to have lunch (15mn away from the skyline) was to me quite unnecessary… and not that well organised.
    But still, I would highly recommend it! And definitely worth every bhatt.

    I enjoyed the tour a lot. The driver and our guide, Odette, were both fantastic. The modern temples were beautiful, the lunch was good, and the vehicle was comfortable.

    I highly rate this adventure tour operator and this tour. Starting with a well prepared orientation for the day at their office we had a 90 minute drive north. As we are older participants they were attentive to our needs and let us ride in the pickup truck cab.

    The cave visit was memorable. Cave ecology and the caves history as a Burmese monastery were explained. bats, snakes and spiders pointed out (no danger to us). It is a long walk with some narrow or low or slippery passages.

    Lunch was very plain. I wish we had been told there is a selection at the restaurant besides Pad Thai.

    The kayaking portion was also memorable. Good orientation. River never too swift but we still managed to capsize once. Khun Jojo was right there to help, but still I got my phone wet (you are warned).

    On the way back Khun Jojo kindly took us to a phone repair shop where the phone surgeon declared my phone DOA.

    This tour exceeded my expectations. The waterfall was nice, but not the highlight for me. I thought the twin pagodas and the gardens around them were amazing. The trek was far better than I understood in advance. The views were great! Maxi, the overall guide was fantastic.

    This experiment is one of the best experiences I have EVER had. The care for the visitors, the care for the elephants and the overall demeanor of the hosts made this an experience of a lifetime. It was exactly as advertised.
    We will be talking about our day with the elephants for the rest of our lives.

    Our second time at 8Adventures for their ATV trip was just as awesome as the first! Surrounded by lush jungle, the views were absolutely stunning. We even got to see elephants chilling in the river as we rode by, which was a highlight for sure.

    Even though we did the same route as last year, every minute of the three-hour trip was exciting and fun. The staff were super friendly and made sure we were safe and having a great time. Plus, their gear was top-notch, which made the whole experience even better.

    We had such a blast that we'll be doing another ATV trip with 8Adventures in our next visit to Chang Mai

    I’m so glad I booked this tour. Our tour guide was Tong. He was so knowledgeable and you can tell he loves his job and sharing about his country. Ask for Tong when you book - he was wonderful and you’ll have a good day!

    Malee was amazing and kind. She was informative and provided us with a lot of insight regarding the history, meanings and cool facts about the National park. We enjoyed our tour!

    Great opportunity to try proper downhill MTB. Definitely not for the faint of heart as its a steep and bumpy ride. Fun day out all round. Would be better if there were larger option bikes available; they all seemed to be M size so it was difficult to pedal uphill on the few occasions that was needed.

    Fantastic tour of two beautiful temples led by a wonderful guide. Malee was extremely warm and knowledgeable, and really made this a special experience — especially since I ended up being the only one on the tour! 10/10 would recommend.

    Guide was fabulous. Filled us in on the culture & history of the temples. There was a festival going on so we were able to sample all the local food.
