    I went to Thailand for 2 weeks. My guides Ohm and Bonita were a blessing. We had many kinds of transports and always got where we needed to go. Always enough information with a slight aire of mystery, since I had never been to Thailand. The accommodations were rated about 7, any issue was taken care of with a smile. Pleanty of bottled water and wifi. I just didn't want to leave. The Hill Tribe of Lahu are a wonderful people and I send many blessing their way. And the Elephants...I can't say enough. I would rate the whole experience a 9-10.

    I was very apprehensive before I made the trip to Thailand not really knowing what to expect as first time I had travelled on my own, The whole Bamboo family organisation were fantastic so supportive in any questions help, Bonita our tour rep was outstanding and made you feel totally secure and at home and nothing was any trouble she certainly made the tour fun. The tour is one big adventure meeting beautiful local people seeing the real Thailand and of course helping out and giving back to the community. Accommodation food was all how it should be for this experience if true thai life. I cannot wait to do my next trip and am hoping to be able to do it with Bonita again! Thank you so much Bonita and bamboo you have changed my life

    Jane!!!!! I can not say enough about Jane! Honestly she made our trip so much better.... we were sad when Kooga had to leave us in Chang Mia but Jane stepped in and totally made us feel at ease. She was fun, and kind, and so sweet, she caught on to our American slang.... we may have been a bit of a bad influence :)!!! But Jane was so sweet and would just smile and giggle and put up with our crazy shenanigans. I actually got an injury that required a trip by ambulance to the ER for stitches, Jane was so professional and efficient and took great care of me never leaving my side. Her sweet and kind demeanor had us all feeling like 1 big happy family for the 2 week trip and in tears when we had to say our goodbyes. I would highly recommend Jane for any tour! And I would definitely request her when I come back! We are hoping she will come take a tour if Cali! Love you Hane!!!❤️❤️❤️

    Bonita was fantastic!!! LOVE her! The entire tour was an amazing experience. Every person I met was so nice and warm and giving. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean. The volunteer work itself was very rewarding, yet not overly strenuous. Transportation couldn't have been any better. The 10-hr bus ride from Bangkok to Chang Rai was very comfortable. I would recommend this tour very highly.

    Bo was seriously the sweetest tour guide ever! She was so knowledgeable of everything in Thailand. If she didn’t exactly know an answer to a question you had she would find someone who knew the answer. She was so much fun and smiled constantly. I would love to go on another tour les by Bo again.

    Had both good and not so good bits. Firstly, most of the experience and sights were amazing. The tour guides were very friendly and accomodating. Picked up a little bit of thai language in the trip. Some of the experiences were not so great. The treking option was reduced from 2 days to 2 hours due to rain. Some of the volunteering alternatives were not very well thought out. They were more self-gratification for the gullable than anything else. E.g. had 15 highly educated volunteers. They were made to do landscaping for sidewalk extension and planting bamboo in the rain. Completele fail in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. Would have rather donated some money for the locals to do the work and let us take pictures. Better for thai economy too. Also elephant camp was a bit of a disappointing experience. The elephants were domistaced enough for humans to put food in their mouth. I.e. they were more house dogs than elephants. They are being raised to be completely dependant on their human captors for the tourism industry. A lot of things being done for tourism in thailand is a bit unethical and unsustaunable in my opinion. Overall, the experience was great. Wanted a break from the regular and see something different and we did. The locations we stayed at were well chosen. Travelling via public transportation was also a good experience. Would definitely recommend this tour for first time thailand travellers. Will give you confidence to travel in thailand on your own.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • November 1, 2016

      I'm wondering what the extreme 5 day beach blast consists of?

      The 14 day tour ends in Bangkok on Saturday, the rest will then head down to the amazing national park of Khao Sok where you will get to spend the night in a floating bungalow and wake up by literally walking out of your bungalow straight into the lake! It's incredibly beautiful there and you can swim, kayak, hike or just relax! Then we will head to Koh Phangan, the infamous home of the full moon party where we'll stay by the beach, have a fun boat trip with snorkeling and party till we drop (if that's your thing!). We'll then bring you back to Bangkok to say goodbye.

    • November 1, 2016

      Can a 40+ years old passenger still be able to join this trip?

      Yes, the recommended maximum age for this trip is 45, if they are older than that, they are still accepted and travelling on a specal dates.

    • September 1, 2016

      Can you tell me the amount of animal interaction on this trip?

      In this tour there are two days spent volunteering at an elephant sanctuary near Chiang Mai. These are rescued elephants that are not allowed to wander freely and be free from abuse. Volunteers help with farming projects to help feed the elephants and get to interact with them with the help of a mahout.
