I did the ATV + Rafting tour this summer in 2021. This was a must do experience in Chiang Mai. In the morning we took the ATVs out first. They did a great job with safety as well as took the time to make sure I was comfortable driving the ATV. The ride up the mountain provided great views and as an adrenaline junkie / someone who has had experiences with ATVs they really took the feedback on going faster :) They didn't push anything which was great because it was up to me to decide when to go faster. The view at the top was great.

In the afternoon we went white water rafting. The training video was great and the instructor did a great job giving me opportunities to apply the training and ask any questions that I needed. The rafting was great and conditions were great. At times we passed elephants which was awesome. The rapids were so fun! they also did a great job capturing videos and footage / allowed me to bring my go pro.

Truly a memorable day. Would recommend 10/10

We had a great day out with 8Adventure! They gave my children, 2 boys age 7 and 10, a great first time experience for ATV riding and white water rafting. The guides were super. We had a guide named Sak, and he was friendly and knowledgeable. The whole team, Eric and his staff, prioritise safety which makes it comfortable for families. We had a short hike included into the day to a waterfall with a natural slide! It was amazing! Thank you to Eric and the staff of 8Adventure for a super fun day out in Chiang mai! We will be back again!

We did the ATV + Rafting in early January. The ATV part of the tour was really fun. The rafting was simply terrible. There wasn't enough water in the river, which meant all of the rafts kept getting stuck on the rocks. It was so bad that the guides had to get out of the rafts and dislodge the rafts on several occasions and then jump back in. Everyone in my group was just ready for the rafting to be over, because it wasn't fun. (We've done rafting on several occasions and we've never seen anything like this). Quite frankly, 8Adventures should have told everyone that rafting was canceled -- or at least given us an option to skip rafting and go home early -- instead of wasting everyone's time and money.

8Adventures was very well run otherwise. Safety was their highest priority, much moreso than any outfit I've seen operating in the US or New Zealand (the other places we've rafted). We were very impressed from that perspective. But unfortunately, we felt like we wasted a day of our precious vacation because the conditions were so poor, and 8Adventures did not do the right thing.

We are a family of 3 with a teenage daughter (13) so we booked 2 adults and 1 child however I had to pay an extra THB 900 for the TV Quad Bike because they expected my daughter to be a passenger instead of a driver which was confusing as it does not mention this on the website.
I also had to pay an extra THB 500 for the Whitewater rafting for my daughter (not sure of the reason) but in the end I ended up paying much more than if I had actually booked 3 adults instead.
Despite having to pay the extra amount it was good still good fun but also wished they had advised us in advance instead of the day before what to wear and what to bring so that we could have been more prepared.

We actually did zip lining as well. This outfit really know their stuff and make sure you have the best time while keeping your safety an absolute priority
I found the safety video in the bus an overload and a bit intimidating but when you're in the hands of the Thai guides it's all simplified and clear. The briefings are thorough and help is always at hand. All three activities were memorable and enjoying lunch watching the elephants across the river at Elephant Nature Park was a bonus ( you'll probably encounter these big guys quad biking and on the river )
PS Don't. plan on staying dry on the River, it the rapids don't wet you the guides will.

A nice air-conditioned van picked us up from our accommodation. It was an enjoyable drive to the site. Excellent high quality gear for the ATVs, very impressed. Loved the ATV ride, definitely one of the highlights from our trip to Thailand. Enjoyed the atv experience more than the whitewater rafting, as our group passed the practice field with flying colours and was able to do the advanced route. Instructors are top notch and great personalities. Whitewater rafting was a great experience as well, just wasn't as thrilling as I was expecting (I've been twice before in Canada and felt Canada whitewater rafting was better). Would recommend bringing a pair of watershoes for whitewater rafting as no water shoes are provided. Nice small group of 4 people per raft. We were able to purchase pictures of atv/raft experience for 500baht (comes on a USB). Highly recommend this tour!

Professional crew. Excellent arrangement. ATV and rafting was about 3 hours respectively. The ATV crew acts very fast when it comes to vehicle stuck or broke down. Replacement ATV was readily available. The route was good as well. Lunch was pretty good. Rafting was very enjoyable. There were 6 rapids. 2 or 3 of them are very thrilling! Rafting crew were very friendly. Quick action when called upon in rescue and emergency. Handled crisis very well. Highly recommended!

Air-conditioned transfers from Chiang Mai.

Very thorough safety briefings on arrival & during activities.

ATV - 3 hour trip such fun. If like me you don’t want to drive your own vehicle you can sit on the back with one of the guides. Some of the trip on road but mostly off road along bumpy tracks. Stunning rainforest scenery. Elephants roaming wild by the river.

Tasty lunch included back at camp. Chicken, rice, salad & fruit. Tea, coffee. Free water provided all day.

RAFTING- river wasn’t high enough for white water rafting so we were in 2 man inflatable kayaks with one guide per boat. Exciting rapids and sections of flat water too. Beautiful scenery- really peaceful. One of the guides climbed up riverbank and picked bunch of bananas for us.

Guides so happy & friendly & seemed to love their jobs. Great on health & safety. A day to remember for us - teens loved it too. Thank you 8Adventures.
