Life coaching and cultural holiday in Chiang Mai
Excellent. This was a memorable (and life changing!) experience. The most memorable part was the actual one to one life coaching sessions and being able to do these at a comfortable and relaxing hotel. (more)Karen Gorham
The most memorable part of the holiday was the life coaching that we had and, a fantastic highlight, the excursion to the elephant sanctuary. (more)Kirsten Stolz
From 745 excluding flights
Thailand holiday, Northern Mountains, Southern Beaches
Imaginatively devised, well planned and executed. The best parts were the visit to the Sakai tribe, Sukhotai World Heritage Site, the longboat trip down the Kok River & the trek to the Northern hill tribes. (more)Charles Moberly
The elephant riding and the Thai cooking was the most memorable part. (more)Sarah Morton
From 2900 - 3100 including UK flights
Life coaching & spa holiday in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin everyday. When you live in Scotland this rarely happens! (more)Emma Gunter
The operator was wonderful with helping people who are stuck in life or who just want to change (more)Cherry Lihou
From 689 excluding flights
Thailand activity holiday, bike, hike & raft
Memorable parts? The first village stay on the hill tribe trek - we were the first group to stay in this village, and the kids were so excited to see us that I think we became a free babysitting service to the whole village for the entire night! Tips? Be prepared to 'rough it' and bring a sense of adventure with you. Many of the nights accommodation involve some form of shared accommodation with the whole group - think home stays, bamboo huts when trekking, house boats, and sleeper... (more)Hannah Gausden
From 885 - 970 excluding flights
Thailand activity holiday
Memorable parts? Trekking in the hill area around Chang Mai, and staying in the tree house. The kayaking from beautiful beaches and the many historical buildings were also very memorable Tips? Definitely take a rucksack. For those who didn't it was a hassle. We did not really need water bottles as water provision was excellent Local benefits? Yes, especially in the less traditionally tourist areas. This was less soon the beach areas where tourism seemed more well established. Overall... (more)Ruth Leese
From 1089 excluding flights
Northern Thailand budget holiday
Koh Tao was like paradise, such a beautiful place with great people... I had a great time and seeing different parts of Thailand, I would rate the holiday as very enjoyable. (more)Nova Hart
Had a great time, enjoyed meeting and walking with people from the other countries on the trip. Our guide was excellent, the rafting and elephants fun and an adventure. (more)Peter Abigail
It was an excellent holiday one of our best holidays. The local guide was lovely, he tried to teach us an elephant song! (more)Holly Robertshaw
From 311 - 375 excluding flights
Timeless Thailand holiday
The temples in Angkor Wat / Siem Reap were incredible. The roads in Cambodia were pretty memorable as well [though for a completely different reason!]. (more)Candy Owens
Great country, fantastic guide, very friendly and welcoming local people. Would book another trip with same company but especially Thailand if I could get the same guide as she really helped the group come together and made sure everything went as smoothly and was as much fun as possible. (more)Louise Massen
From 875 - 1000 excluding flights
Family adventure holiday in Thailand
Wonderful. Travelling in a small group as a family with such a dedicated guide allowed us to see more & interact more. We were able to eat at small road side cafes and at the Phetchaburi night market, and wander around the Sangklaburi floating houses (more)Simon Daniels
We all have different highlights, but generally agree that the day we had a boat trip down the Maekok river, followed by an elephant ride where we got to ride the elephants like a mahout and then spent a night in an Akha village, was our most memorable day. (more)Taru Jones
Most memorable was walking in the rainforest following local guide in his shower cap and Wellingtons and meeting the jungle dwelling Sakai, and swimming in pool at top of huge and remote waterfall. (more)Jane Giles
From 1925 - 2050 including UK flights
Thailand holidays, tailor made
Memorable parts? The temples (including Angkor Wat) around Siam Reap were wonderful. But our two day trip on the Mekong to Luang Prabang and, Luang Prabang itself were very memorable. Tips? Make sure that you have at least three days in Luang Prabang and no less that five in Siam Reap. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? It was a wondeful experience in every respect. The organisation and choice of hotels and guides was excellent. (more)Tim Hailstone
From 2200 including UK flights
Weddings in Thailand, Buddhist & Christian ceremonies
Memorable parts? This was a specialist holiday - a wedding so the most excting part was clear, and organised to perfection. Tips? Trust Somchit to deal with everything better than you could even imagine it yourself. Local benefits? Very much a 'local' feel. Everything - from music to flowers - was sourced locally. Overall rating? Both guests and us, the happy couple, enjoyed every second. (more)Tim English
From Baht49000 per ceremony
Thailand tailor made holiday
Memorable parts? The three Elephant Mahout Training at Anantara Golden Triangle was a really exciting experience for the whole family - we just loved it. Tips? Avoid staying in the Ton Sai area of Phi Phi island...massively overdeveloped. Local benefits? Yes - the places we stayed and visited were predominantly staffed by locals. Mahouts (elephant handlers) in particular are becoming increasingly dependent on tourism, and need the revenue from activities such as elephant... (more)Elena Macia
From 2495 excluding flights
Holidays to Thailand, Classical Thailand
Memorable parts? The cookery course at Cooking at Home. The railway and war cemetary at Kanchanaburi, elephant training centre. Time to "chill" Tips? Think about booking an extra night before/after the trip. The hotel in Bangkok is close to the markets of Banglampu and Thawet and the best shopping was in Bangkok. Be prepared for the heat/humidity. Up to 40 degrees in March. However this is a very leisurely trip and most of the accommodation was very comfortable so it was more than... (more)deborah lloyd

Northern Thailand tour
The most memorable part of this holiday were the great guides. Both Wi and Aor were great company and very knowledgeable. (more)Lorrie Marchington
Most memorable? The warm welcome from all the people we met, the fun everyone was having at the Thai New Year festival, the variety of experience each day, and being able to see so much of the country. (more)Laura Woodhead
From 1925 - 2125 including UK flights

Most memorable were the stay with Karen hill tribe and the seclusion of the beach in koh samet. (more)Farrukh Alam
Fantastic holiday enjoyed by all the family... Riding elephants and jet boating down the canals were real highlights. (more)Lisa Beckenham
From 1657 - 2104 including UK flights
Thailand tour, Bangkok and Chiang Mai
Memorable parts? Trekking in Chang Mai, without a doubt. The itinerary was amazing and we'll never forget the bamboo rafts being made right in front of us, the elephant trek and the hospitality of the hill tribes. Tips? If you're not a city person, I wouldn't recommend staying in Bangkok more than a day and a night. We had 3 nights there and it was too long. Local benefits? Hopefully. We donated some of our stuff to the hill-tribes and bought local food and goods. We felt... (more)Louise Allman
