Our guides A.K. and Oat were so friendly and knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. We got some wonderful exercise, saw beautiful scenery, and got a boost of adrenaline all in one quick trip. This was just the addition we needed for our trip to Thailand!

An amazing trip that I would definitely recommend! My tour guide AK was so fun and friendly and gave so much interesting information about Thailand history and culture. The trip was so well organised and the hotel I stayed in was lovely. I wish I could do the trip again, thanks so much :)

I traveled to Chang Mai, Thailand with Intrepid in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. The trip was awesome! Due to the many cancellations I had the guides full attention, and this was a great experience. The guides were knowledgeable and made the trip interesting. Cycling through the local areas and away from the touristy things was great and I felt I really experienced local culture. This trip had a bit of everything: adventure, local culture, and local cuisine.
