    4.5 - Excellent

    This trip had to be one of the greatest times in my life! I had travelled by myself to Thailand from the UK and I was really nervous as this was the first time I had even been out of Europe, let alone on my own! However, some of the people I met turned out to be friends I will have for a very long time, this tour was great and the guides were fantastic. I wrote a blog post about things to do in Chiang Mai, which is the first week of the tour. So if you fancy wetting your appetite and seeing some of the things you could get up to then head here https://alextracks.com/2017/01/09/chiang-mai-what-to-do-while-you-are-there/ Keep tracking guys!

    An amazing experience, life changing in fact. The tour crammed in the experiences of a lifetime enabling us to experience the real SE Asia. Our CEO Apple was amazing and so knowledgable. I can't wait until I have the opportunity to tour with G Aventures again.
