A most memorable Thailand experience
This Hill Tribe Tour, with Anan, was truly one of the most memorable highlights of our six week journey in Southeast Asia! Anan is extremely knowledgeable and knows exactly where to take you to see and experience what village life is really like in the Highlands of north Thailand.During the nine hour tour we encountered only one group of four tourists at one of the villages!!!! This is a must experience for anyone who travels to Chiang Rai!!!

Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai Tour
Our connection with Hilltribe Holidays started with Melissa. She did well in steering our tour to meet our needs upon our several early discussions. Very helpful. Upon meeting her husband, Pat, our lead guide for the tour, it was evident the tour would be well tailored to meet our needs. Pat, along with our other guide, Winai, proved to have excellent local knowledge and connections. We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend. One additional benefit was the excellent pictures included in the package!

Really good family trek
We did the tour (2 families with kids from 7 to 13) with Mitch who was super friendly. Everything was perfect and it allows to go out from the traditional tourist path. Strongly recommend.
