    Thank you for the enjoyable tour, even though the weather wasn't in our favor the trip is about the experience and the tour guide was excellent on the whole journey with information sharing and really integrating the experience to make you understand the parks history.

    Our private tour guide Pim was a gem and the absolute best part of our tour. Yes the car was brand new and super comfortable, yes the private lunch was delicious and amazing, yes the jungle, the rice field, the highest point of Thailand, Doi Inthanon, everything was amazing. But really, the best part of our full day tour was Pim. She was so sweet and made sure me and my wife were safe, well taken care of. Tailored our tour to fit our desires, really taught us and gave insight into the day to days of Thailand and things we would never have experienced without Pim. We learned so much about the culture and people and history. Thank you so much Pim, you are amazing!!

    The Hike was up & around a waterfall. It wasn't too demanding, but the exercise was good.
    The guides 'Jen' & 'A' were really friendly, knowledgable & took great care with our safety & ensuring that we was OK (sorry if I got your names wrong!).
    There was only 3 of us this day, but this made it very personal.
    Plenty of water provided & lunch was pork noodles which was very nice.
    The weather was rainy & cloudy (& obviously humid), which meant that we didn't get the views. This did not make the experience less enjoyable in any way, it would just have been a bonus!
    We got driven to the top of the mountain with the bikes, which we had already tried out before we left. The higher we went, the cooler it got, which was refreshing for us, but maybe not the locals 😂.
    Safety & instruction was very good with all pads, helmets & gloves provided. Even a rucksack to protect your own belongings.
    Initially, I though that it was going to be a little too tame for me, but given the conditions, it made the ride down pretty technical & I had great fun trying not to come off (I was the only one that did - once - but because of all the protection the only thing that got hurt was my pride. That will teach me for trying to be clever! The guys were considerate for our safety at all times.
    We stopped several times for photo opportunities & at the end had a nice walk by the lake where there is huge straw 'statues' that are impressive.
    We were dropped straight back to our hotels afterwards to get cleaned up.
    I certainly knew I'd had a workout; legs going up & upper body more coming down.......
    A great day & I would recommend it if you like mountain biking & are short on time to do longer trekking.

    We joined a nice tour today. We left pretty early so we could take our time to look around everywhere we stopped and still return to the city center before dark. The tour bus also goes with you everywhere, so it’s not too tiring at all. Also, the guide (Nan) clearly knew the area and the people there very well, which was very nice. We definitely had a lot of fun!

    We had an amazing trip, with the best tourguide you could imagine; Lan.
    He was calm, funny and so wise and clever on everything in the jungle - a real jungle man!
    The food was amazing and there was lot of it.
    The jungle was so beautiful and the experience with the elefants was unforgetable.
    We can only reccommend this amazing trip!!

    This was an amazing experience and I don’t know why it’s not on every list! This is an elephant sanctuary where they have rescued 15 elephants ( at the time of our visit). This is not a zoo! Feed the elephants by hand, an I mean your hand on their tongue! Wash them In The river and feel a bonding with these amazing creatures that will make an impression for a lifetime. A must see if your in Thailand with children. Get wet and muddy, make vitamins and feed them, feel their breath, caress them, feel the flap of their ears on your face. The staff is wonderful, knowledgeable, charming and speaks English. I highly recommend this elephant experience!

    This experience was fantastic from beginning to end. Pon and Sid are phenomenal at what they do. Their English was sufficient. Knowledge was amazing and generousity bar none. They did extra sites at our request as time permitted also. We would highly recommend them.

    An amazing and eye opening experience. We came to Thailand for our honeymoon and knew we wanted to do an elephant tour in Chiang Mai. It was only after researching some of the experiences available that we realized Chiang Chill was THE ONLY truly ethical elephant tour. No bathing, touching or feeding the elephants as this behavior is completely unnatural. With Chiang Chill, our amazing guide Tip brought us trekking into the woods so we could witness these beautiful animals living truthfully in their natural habitat while we marveled and observed from a safe distance. No cheesy photo ops of humans hugging and feeding elephants here… just a truly natural experience to co exist in the same space as these majestic creatures. Highly recommend!!

    My wife and I had a great day birding on Doi Inthanon with Joe. Saw many great species, visited the summit and a few other trails and spots. Joe was a friendly, interesting and knowledgeable guide. We stopped off for a great meal to top the trip off nicely.

    Many thanks,
    Mike.
