Suffice to say the scenery was stunning, we travelled through wonderful quiet roads and tracks. Chatted to locals, stopped off at local farmers, snacks and breaks whenever you want, finished up back at the base camp. This tour really is a wonderful day. This is a relatively small organisation trying, and in my experience successfully delivering high quality experiences which offer good value for money. If you want something a bit different groups like the vanguards really should be one of your key places to go.
Impressive Insights and Amazing Places. I did the one-day Back2Basics tour with my parents and still can't get over my amazement. We have been to many breath-taking places such as seafood and floating markets, temples and hidden resorts, cities and landscapes - both crowded and empty.
We have done many tours all over the world. If you want something different away from the normal tourist trail to see the real life and meet Thai people please use this company. Last year we did the 360 tour around Bangkok city, this year the two day bike tour staying overnight... amazing!! Can't wait to come back next year and see where the team will take us...thank you ... so memorable!
