The driver was very attentive, picked us up at the hotel on time, accompanied us from station to station and brought us back safely through the somewhat stressful rush hour traffic in Bangkok. The hike was competently guided and well explained by a Thai woman (in English and Thai, my friend is Thai). The hike was not too short and not too long at 3 hours. But you shouldn't run around much longer in the heat. However, it is not quite as hot in the mountains. Good, worn shoes are recommended. My friend ended up with a few blisters - mistake: new shoes.
My husband and I had a great time on this trip. We ended up being the only ones to book the day we went, so essentially had our own private tour and cooking class. Our guide was very informative and gave us a nice balance between a guided tour and allowing us to go off an explore on our own. He was also an excellent driver and the car was very comfortable. The cooking class was fun and run by the sweetest woman we met in all of Thailand. It was also easily the best meal we had during out two weeks.
It even exceeded our expectations. One thing in advance: If you want to see elephants, black bears, etc., you should go to the zoo. In the wild, you are unlikely to encounter them. But you can see the traces of them, that they live there and we could hear some species. Breathtaking. There are also lots of beautiful colorful insects and butterflies that we don't have. And at the end you can definitely see some cheeky animals, let yourself be surprised :)
This was a great day out in the Nature with a super friendly driver Mr. Chan. The walking trail amidst interesting noises of birds, gibbons etc was wonderful!. I absolutely enjoyed it. Good organisation and great timing
A wonderful trip that we did together with our tour guide Peter. He knew a lot about telling us a real experience!
