What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Trek and hutting brilliant. Do take rubber flip-flops for visiting the facilities.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Overnight train not currently running. Therefore have to make two trips on overnight buses. Not as roomy or confortable as a train. Don't be fooled by 1st class label. My husband's bag was stolen within minutes of boarding first bus. Marred our holiday considerably.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Agree with previous review - journeys too long, especially as currently by bus rather than train. Our 2nd was 21 hours on minibus and bus with only a few short breaks to stretch legs.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

So many! Our tour guide (Pok) cooking our dinner over in the Red Lahu village house; wading through thigh-deep river water (called 'paths' in Thailand!;having a Thai massage on the beach under the palm trees in Koh Chang; but above all, the lovely, friendly, calm Thai people.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

12 out of 10!!! The best tour guide ever, by a long way (and I've met some really good ones before!) Pok made this trip. He was a very knowledgeable guide, an excellent cook, an attentive doctor, a brilliant entertainer...Nothing was too much trouble, and his sense of humour is legendary!

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Don't go in the rainy season. If you do, take clothes you don't mind throwing away afterwards as the red mud is impossible to get out of fabric! Be prepared to wonder what possessed you when you arrive home with 3 pairs of elephant trousers!

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Too much time spent on transport for such a short trip. Would cost very little more to add a couple of extra days to the trip (one in Chang Mai and one in Koh Chang), allowing more time for some of the advertised activities which we didn't have time for.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Apart from the fantastic group of people we were walking with, it was the huge amount of stunning butterflies on the Hill Tribe trek.
