The tour was excellent! I was a little apprehensive about embarking on a tour, but this type of tour enabled lots of freedom to do what I wanted, but with the convenience of a guide to helpfully offer advice and make arrangements.

I had a wonderful time! I learned so much about the area I traveled, the people, the culture and the food. The hotels were clean and welcoming. The various forms of transportation an experience and the Thai people wonderfully friendly! This Northern trip had a lot to offer in such a short amount of time. It was awesome!

This trip exceeded all expectations in every way. You simply cannot anticipate the feelings that this area of Thailand conjurs up within you. I am happy with every aspect of this trip. The elephant ride and bamboo rafting had to be two of the many highlights for me, as well as meeting the hill tribes, who are unbelievably accommodating, and experiencing multiple forms of local transport, including tuk tuks! Using local guides for the trekking was fantastic - it gave us a real insight into how things really are in these remote places and the area itself is a stunning environment to be in.

Our local G Adventures tour leader, Simon, did a great job teaching us about the Thai culture, how to be respectful and prepared us for what to expect by using photos, maps and talks. We had an amazing time hiking in the jungle, exploring Bangkok and cooking in Chiang Mai! We were even blessed by the monks!

I went into this trip having never done a travel tour before. I was nervous because I generally like to move at my own pace and without restrictions.... This tour was amazing because it allowed flexibility, ,but was structured enough to keep everyone moving in the right direction at the proper time.
