“It was a very humbling and interesting experience to get an insight into the lives of the hill tribe people of Northern Thailand. Noop our CEO was extremely friendly and helpful and always had a positive attitude. The tour is well-run and organised too.The trekking is not too difficult - the only challenge is the heat. As long as you are prepared for basic accommodation, you will have a great time.”
