Need to pre-hire a guide?

I will be spending about 4 days in Mae Hong Son. I want to do a couple of days of hill tribe trekking and then a day or two to explore the town.

Do you recommend I book a guide before traveling to Thailand? Or, could I just arrive in Mae Hong Son and find a guide to take me where I want? Thank you.

Since the really busy holidays weeks are behind us now, you probably wouldn't have any problem at all finding a guide when you get to Mae Hong Son. One positive thing about doing it that way would be that you could stop in and talk with a couple of guides to see who you like the best and what sort of itineraries and costs they offer.

Thank you tookay. Could you recommend a guide? I have been searching this forum and there aren't many guides listed with contact info.

Thanks again.
