We got a referral to Mellow Trek from our friends who went for there honeymoon. What attracted us..was that it was our honeymoon as well and we liked the idea of a private tour. We did the 3 days, 2 nights--which we also highly recommend. From start to finish Steffen and Uzi made the process super easy and very relaxed. They are reliable, and offer an experience that is truly off the beaten track. The food, accomodation, and activites were above and beyond incredible..we took something like 600 pictures in 3 days. It was truly the perfect balance between relaxation, private experience, a real thai experience on the original trek, and a guide who went above and beyond every second of the tour to make us feel comfortable and serene. We are already planning to go back. We recommend this tour to ANYONE who wants to leave Thailand truly inspired...

We booked a one day trip around Kanchanaburi. Highlights: Erawan Waterfalls, Hellfire Pass and Memorial Museum, River Side coffee shop,Death Railway Wooden Bridge & Krasae Cave, The bridge over River Kwai. It was a really great day with our tour guide Daw. She told us a lot of the area around Kanchanaburi and we learnd a lot of the Thai culture.
We did a lot of great pictures during that trip, especially at the Erawan Waterfalls. And we liked the very delicious coffee in an amazing atmosphere at the the River Side Coffee shop.
Many thanks for the good organisation to Steffen!
In conclusion: We would do the trip again!

This is my second time with Mellowtrek, and I loved it just as much as the first time.
Steffen, Ozi and Dao is the best people to travel with. They became our friends, how took care of EVERYTHING on the trip. Ozi is Mr.YES CAN! Whatever we wanted he said yes can!
Dao was like a sweet mother, and Steffen was our best friend.
The best experience was the jungle camp. In the middle of the jungle they made a paradise on earth. Two lovely bungalows in the most beautiful surroundings. We got to meet the chief of the jungle and his family how came and did everything for us. Made delicious food, and was great company. In the morning we picked fresh lime from the trees surrounding us to make lemon shakes while others made us breakfast. This is a trip i`ll never forget! I recomend this place for friends,families, couples, honeymoons, Weddings (!!) and for travelers traveling alone how want peace and quiet.
We also saw the beautiful erawan waterfalls, it was a postcard heaven! The Elephant jungle camp was in amazing surroundings,real and genuine- and it was a day to remember! During the whole day we had our own photographer who took amazing pictures of everything on the elephant trek.
The Sai Yok floating bungalows was a nice relaxing part of our trip. It´s cozy, romantic and beautiful. We had a private trip, and it was worth every penny!!! We saw groups on 40-50 people and was very happy to just be 3. + our "staff"/friends! I´ve been to all the islands, in BKK but the absolutely best experience was Kanchanaburi and everyting we did on this trip! If you want to see the real Thailand, see all the genuine happy people, all the real things join Mellow trek!

We went on a 1 night 2 day tour with Mellow Trek in November 2012, our tour guide was Daw and driver Top. What can I say, but one of the most amazing experiences of our lives! This was the adventure part of our honeymoon before heading to the beaches for some relaxation and we are so glad we did it. We were picked up from our Bangkok hotel and driven straight to the Erawan waterfalls, which are just stunning. Daw took us all the way up to the top of the waterfalls taking our pictures and documenting the day for us. Beware of the gigantic nibbling fish, but if you move around they leave you alone. One of the highlights of this trip for us was the food. Daw picked a variety of traditional Thai dishes for us to try and they were all fabulous, we never found the same again, but are so happy we at least got to experience it once!
We stayed in the river bungalows for our night's stay. When we arrived we were taken up the river (a longtail boat literally pulls the kitchen up the river!) then we jumped in a floated down the river back to the bungalows. We also had a shower in the waterfalls! Just stunning, then headed back to the bungalows for dinner. We also got to feed the fish in the river, there were so many! Amazing!
The second day we did Hellfire Pass and Death Railway, the history of which was fascinating and horrific. We also visited the elephant camp and went for a bath with the elephants.
Overall amazing trip and I would fully recommend it to anyone. If you have Daw as your tour guide, you will be very lucky, she is a truly wonderful person with a heart of gold. Thank you Mellow Trek!

It´s my second time on the 3 days 2 nigth trip and I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to describe it !??!? And ill have to say that i can't describe it, not in pictures not in words you just simply have to try it your self :) And what about the tour guides? Well Steffen was my tour guide both times, and he is awesome, great guide, extremely helpful and becomes your friend that you'll be sad to leave after 3 days company.

I will come again...
