    We both thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide in Bangkok, Toto, was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and attentive and great fun. Bangkok is a very busy, vibrant city and it was great to have a knowledgeable guide to lead us through the mayhem! When we returned to Bangkok at the end of the trip we felt much more confident about navigating ourselves around because of the advise he had given. The highlight for us was the jungle trek and again we had a great guide, See. Again he mixed information and advice with a good sense of humour and also the ability to rustle up very tasty meals! The walking was not hard going and with so many beautiful and interesting things to see along the way, not to mention the fabulous scenery, it passed easily. Staying in the villages was an interesting experience. The noise at night was incredible. Who knew frogs can make so much noise! The accommodation was generally of a reasonable quality although the Bangkok and Chiang Mai hotels were rather tired. They were very good locations though. The floating hotel was a beautiful spot. The overnight train journeys were ok although I would have welcomed the chance to be able to check into the hotel and have a shower when we arrived in the morning. It is very difficult to get a good nights sleep on the train so to just have to drop your bags at the hotel and not be able to get into our room until mid afternoon was not great. Another option would be to offer first class seats on the train which from the look of it would offer the chance of a better nights sleep. Overall I felt the tour offered a good balance between organised activities and having time to ourselves to do our own thing. Our group was very small (3) which luckily for us worked ok but a larger group may have been better.
