The tour was much better than I thought it would be, as I went into it being cynical about tour-group trips. Our tour guide for the north part of the trip, Willie, was excellent and helped to accommodate in any way he could! Also, the security of travelling with a group and not having to worry about accommodation and travel made the trip very hassle-free. I would definitely recommend it!Overall Rating
Overall it was a great experience. I like that we got to see so many different parts of Thailand and do so many different activities while taking every mode of transportation possible. I really feel like I had experienced so much more than if I had done it on my own. And the guides really made it so easy and stress free because we didn't have to worry about how we would get from one place to the next.Overall Rating
A wide variety of things to see/do. Loved the hill trek but also the relaxing beaches of the south.Overall Rating
i had a really great time. i would definitely use G Adventures again.Overall Rating
The tour was fantastic! It took the stress of making travelling arrangements away and made it easier just to enjoy the experiences facing me.Overall Rating
I had an excellent time on this trip. Would recommend it for people who want to see the culture and beaches of thailand.Overall Rating
A great trip! The trip allowed us to see lots of Thailand and cover the main areas of Thailand in the North and South. It was lovely to have the week on the islands at the end to relax after the hectic 2 weeks before!Overall Rating
I was very impressed with how the reps catered for all the groups needs, and got balance right. I found the trip very informative and the tour guides Tee and Pongsin very knowledgeable. The accommodation was very good and I was impressed with the standard that we slept in. I found the itinerary was just right, where we was busy for the first two weeks and I feel that we did see the real Thailand and for the last week, a complete relax. I am recommending G Adventures to my friends and will be using G Adventures in the near future. Thank you for a very enjoyable first time!!Overall Rating
The northern part of the tour was brilliant, saw a lot of amazing things, the accomodation was good and our tour leader Paul (Surapol) was fantastic, his enthusiasm was brilliant, there is nothing bad you can say about him.Overall Rating

great mix of activities - saw alot in the time and great cultural experience with in my opinion a higher level of comfort than i expectedOverall Rating
I thought the tour was very thorough. I truly believe that even with my own extensive research, I still would not have seen or experienced as much as being a part of this particular tour.Overall Rating
A wide ranging tour, taking in most aspects of life and environment, but with special attention paid to the genuine Thailand.Overall Rating
An amazing time has by both of us. We can't praise G Adventures highly enough. Everything ran so smoothly we never had to think about anything other than enjoying ourselves. Tour leaders were fantastic with such a wide range of knowledge. Thank you.Overall Rating
Everyday was a new insight and experience. Seeing this completely different world thousands of miles away from home was unbelievable, and I saw so many things that I won't be able to ever relay all of them back which just shows how much I saw and took in from the whole trip.Overall Rating
Overall, the trip was very well executed. My group became very tight knit and our guide was both knowledgeable and resourceful. It was an exciting and fulfilling experience.Overall Rating
Overall, I thought this was an awesome adventure! The North Thailand tour was incredible, so much to see and do. Whereas the island part was way more laid back, a nice way to recover! Angkor Wat again very different and extremely interesting. I would definitely do a G Adventure again.Overall Rating
