What you can expect

We are the perfect blend of luxury and local.

We keep the groups small so we can give you the personal attention and luxury experience you deserve. The group size is a max of 10 travellers.

You will have the best experience if you are walking and exploring the cities that we visit. With traffic, especially in Bangkok, it is much more efficient to take the local trains, subways and sometimes an exhilarating TukTuk ride as opposed to a taxi or van. Often we will have lunch at a food stall or local market, have a street snack or stop for a refreshment and people watch for a bit.

We ensure you have the best guides when we tour the famous landmarks, such as the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.

Our days wrap up at the hotel, in luxury and relaxation before we head out as a group for an always delicious evening meal.

The Dining Experiences

A wonderful breakfast is included at our hotels. This is the perfect way to set us up for the day as we head out to explore Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Koh Lanta.

Our lunches are often at small local eateries, stalls, or street food.

We want you to experience the best food that Thailand has to offer and often that means the small family run restaurant.

Our evening meals are more refined and we search out restaurants that give you a unique, yet delicious experience.

A highlight of our time in Chiang Mai is always this day. Patara Elephant Farm is a wonderful place that raises, cares for, and breeds elephants in conjunction with the university in Chiang Mai. We are picked up at our hotel and transported to Patara. When we arrive we are greeted by a few beautiful elephants. We learn about Patara, choose our elephant friendly shirt and then are assigned an elephant for the day. We are taught how to care for them, we hike through the jungle to the river where we have lunch and the opportunity to swim with the elephants if you choose to. For anyone who does not wish to hike to the river, transportation down to the river can be arranged.
