We always felt welcome whereever we were, especially by our tour guide - Moh, she made everyone get involved and helped out when needed. All the accommodations were above the standard I expected from the itinerary, but it was nice having a good hotel to go back to after the hiking etc.

A superb tour contrasting the different aspects of the true Thai culture and scenery throughout the two weeks. A well-balanced itinerary including active days interspersed with more relaxing ones worked very well. Our tour guide Moh was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, and with the assistance of the various local guides on the different sections, she took us to some unforgettable places that you would never hope to experience travelling alone. I have so many fantastic memories of the trip, the country and the people. It was by far my best holiday to date, and I will definitely be back.

We definitely fit in the maximum amount of activities in those 2 weeks. The hiking was strenuous but fun, cycling gave us a view of Thailand we would otherwise have overlooked and the kayaking was blissful. The people we met got along really well and we still keep in touch.

The tour was excellent. Very well organized and action packed. The tour leaders were very helpful and accommodating and made the trip very personal because of their great personalities. The accommodations were great and I liked how there was variation (boat house, hill tribe, bamboo hut etc). The transportation was great !! (loved the biking and kayaking).

The tour made visiting Thailand a warm, personal, lively, and unique experience. Our guides and tour leader enhanced the trip and provided us with a wealth of information that went beyond anything I would have picked up on my own or by reading a dozen books. It was my first guided tour and I feel I can proudly -and happily- say... wow, I did it !
