I took a two day birding trip north of Chiang Mai. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and very well organised. I saw nearly 90 species over the two days, which was very good considering the season. The guide (Boontom) was incredibly knowledgeable (could identify all birds in the park by sight and sound) and both the guide and driver were extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Good for you Tom as the average for April is around 40 bird species per day at Doi Inthanon. I am delighted you had such a successful birdwatching trip. Boontom, your guide, and Jackie, your driver thank you for your kind review. Have fun visiting Laos.

An incredible 2 day experience in a beautiful area. Don't miss a visit to the Elephant Hospital in the area - it is an amazing place. Our guide (Loti) is from the area and very knowledgeable about the area, its history, local plants and their medicinal uses, etc. The kids (10, 12, and 15) loved it as did the parents! Not to be missed if you are visiting the area.

Loti and Jackie, your guide and driver, thank you for your kind review. Loti enjoyed showing your family his Karen hill tribe culture, the benefits of having a sustainable cloud forest and swimming with the children at the waterfall. We are all grateful we could take care of your family holiday in Chiang Mai Thailand.

A wonderful two days in the mountains of Thailand.. Stayed in a local Karen tribe village.. A great local guide who knew his stuff and provided us with lots of local knowledge... We did some great walks with him and was wonderful to sit down at dinner with him and our local Chiang mai driver to experience local culture without getting caught up in main stream tourism... So if you want to go local.... Go gentle... Go with respect.... Go with these guys... Highlight of my Thai stay

Great one-day bird tour!!

What a great bird tour in Doi Inthanon National Park! We booked this tour very last minute and Randy was super accommodating in fitting us in. We wrote Randy on the 20th of February and the tour on the 23rd.

We had an early pick up from Chiang Mai, 5:30am, driver was nice and spoke good English. We arrived at the park just after 6:30am, which is perfect time for starting to bird.

We met our incredible bird guide Boontam. He is a local farmer who lives on the land and grew up himself in the National Park, so he knows the area very well. He's been passionate about birding for over 16 years. He was able to identify each species and explain very distinctive features which set them apart such as wing bars, eye rings, etc... I had been at the end of my trip in SE Asia and dying for some good interpretation, and was super happy by the end of the day.

Boontam did his very best to ensure we
saw as many species as possible. He took us to all the hotspots where he knew resident birds exist. We had a grand total of 68 species, which is an incredible feat for a one day tour. He had mentioned the record in one trip was 72 species over 3 day tour, so we did very well.

Thank you for the amazing tour and adding so many birds to my life list! An experience I will never forget :)

Had a wonderfully fulfilling day birding Doi Inthanon. The local guide Boon was amazing - I was so impressed with how he found and identified birds I never would have noticed walking on my own. We saw well over 60 species- including beautiful sunbirds, a well hidden Eurasian Woodcock, blue-throated barbet, several drongos, bulbuls and much more. We were picked up promptly and early as requested in a clean and well stocked (with water) van. The driver, Jackie was very kind and friendly. Stopped for a nice lunch and rest midday in uncrowded and shaded peaceful area. Overall, I was very satisfied and came away with a much expanded life list and some great photos!
