What people are saying about Central Thailand

We had an incredible time on our day trip with Sid and Pon. They were both so incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. The drive was beautiful and we really enjoyed all three stops. They gave us plenty of time to wander around and enjoy ourselves and took great videos and pictures of the day that we can now look back on and enjoy. We would 100% book with them again, it was a great day!

Had a great time on this tour. Nong was a fantastic tour guide, who had a deep knowledge of the activities during this tour, the drive to the activities and everywhere in Thailand. The caves and the waterfalls were better than expected. I would highly recommend anyone to seek out Nong for your tour guiding needs if you have the chance.

First time doing skydiving. Overall experience was great, staff was friendly and professional. The only negative thing is the amount they charge for video and pictures. $107 seems a bit high, tbh. And then there is another additional charge if you want to get a video from your instructor’s GoPro. A bit too much.

The guides are really good and makes the trip really fun. Both the cave and the river were beautiful and worth the experience.

A fantastic day out. Good guide. Cave was great to see and the kayak experience was exceptional.
