I enjoyed the Northern portion better than the Southern portion of my 23-day tour. The South felt more touristy and without being taught local culture and history, I did not see the value in a tour operator there. I do feel the price should be lower for this tour given the lackluster accommodations and that most excursions and meals are not included and it is common knowledge that luxury is cheap in Thailand. That said, I'm glad I went and walk away with many, many memories and experiences I will cherish forever.

Fantastic tour to get a great insight of Thailand. The North is very different to the South so I highly recommend doing both aspects. Be prepared for a full on trip though, if you like a steady pace this is not for you. Thailand is a beautiful country, well worth putting on your bucket list!!
