Spent a brilliant day cycling and kayaking. Excellent service, quality of equipment and guiding was superb. A great opportunity to see the surrounding countryside and learn about the farming and wildlife. Thank you boys for a fabulous day.

This was our first experience with an "adventure" trip and it was so much fun!! Our guide Ahn was so knowledgeable about the area, sharing cultural/historical tidbits making it so much more than just a trek. His English was impeccable, his cooking skills amazing and he made sure that we were well looked after every step of the way!! Yes, be prepared for some rustic accommodations but they were clean, functional and authentic...yes, we will be booking another adventure with Active Thailand in the future!!

This was a great trip. Our guide Tod and driver were knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. Each days cycling was different with a mixture of on-road and off-road tracks, through villages, past lush fields of garlic, fragrant coriander, and one morning a misty start. The accommodation was perfect and we were really well fed. The bikes were well maintained and the frame sizes good. It was great to get away from the usual routes and see some countryside. Highly recommended1

This was my first type of 'adventure trip' like this, and I must say, I was very impressed. Our courteous and funny guide Ahn was very helpful and always made sure we were well looked after. The accommodation was fantastic, the food amazing, and the experience unforgettable! We did plenty of riding on road, off road and on everything in-between! The scenery was amazing, and we enjoyed the entire experience! The support car was always nearby, filled to the brim with cold drinks and yummy snacks (the pineapple biscuits were a life saver!). There was also the option of jumping in the van with our friendly driver if you were too tired to continue!

We enjoyed learning more about Thai culture, and we both agree that we felt very welcome at all the places we visited - very much 'off the beaten path'. We saw parts of Thailand that most other travellers would not!

Not quite cross country riding like we have at home, but fantastic experience none the less!

A very well run adventure with great guides and professional booking staff.
We did the Mae Sa Valley Hike and Bike tour and had an enjoyable day. There was plenty of food, water and a delicious filling Thai style lunch.
The bike gear was in good condition. The transfer mini-van was also in good condition and very comfortable.
We preferred the bike ride through the little villages as the jungle walk was just average we felt. Also, the "visit to a Karen hill tribe village" was not really a visit as we just got back in the mini-van after the jungle walk and drove past the houses....all sealed roads to each house and electricity also, so it didn't really feel like a "tribe village" to us...despite the fact that the jungle walk was in a remote area.
We definitely recommend Active Thailand also known as Northern Trails and Contact Travel.
