Yvonne's review for another Explore tour
“Trip was fast paced with some varied experiences. More accurate dress information prior to attending temples would have been useful but pre holiday research could have found that out anyway. Another day in chiang mai would have been good as elephant trip was practically a full day and the optional tours limited opportunity to explore. Great trip... Although I am templed out now! ”

Julia's review for another Explore tour
“Explore adjusted the trip shortly before departure to accommodate the rule of six. Our group of 15 was split into 3 groups of 5 plus a leader in each group. It meant Explore had to provide an additional two leaders but this ensured the trip ran as safely as possible. We saw the other groups out on the walks and there was cheerful banter between us although we never mixed.It was great to be out on the road with Explore again albeit in strange circumstances. They did everything possible for the trip to run smoothly and safely, while complying with all the current guidelines.The walks were really enjoyable. They were mostly undulating with varied scenery.Would recommend this trip as a good short break in the UK.”
