“What an experience!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

The entire trek was amazing, we did it through G adventures but you can also book it yourself in Chang Mai which would prob work out a bit cheaper if you so your homework.
The trek was not easy but nowhere near impossible, our guides were fantastic if we needed a rest or to slow down, Amazing photo opportunities and met some great people!!

“A cultural experience”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I have always found the best travel experiences exist off the beaten path. If you are able to visit the hill tribe outside of the standard touristy areas you can meet some very interesting and colourful people.

“Great cultural experience”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights at two different Karen people Hilltribe villages as part of a tour with G Adventures. It was a great experience and quite beautiful. We bathed in the river and got to go inside people's homes & school's and learn about their culture.

“Karen Village - Very Disappointing”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I was so looking forward to seeing the "Long Neck People" of Karen Village in Chiang Mai - and was extremely disappointed. You pay 500 Baht p/p to simply walk through some thatched huts with people selling their wares. The night markets in Chiang Mai are much, much better and are free!! I assumed we would see a show, or have some sort of interaction with the people for that entrance fee but you get nothing but the opportunity to purchase. We were in and out in 10 minutes! I would not recommend this at all.

“Do it just say you have”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Nice experience, but definetly commercialized. As a tourist you are expected to buy something, anything. I was going for more of the cultural experience, which I didn't really get. The women speak a variety of languages to be certain that you understand the prices. No confusion with that.
