- This was an excellent holiday with a mixture of lots of different things. We have done other "Active" Explore tours before and enjoyed this one very much too. The bike riding was probably a bit too much both in distance and amount of days (as it was not a cycling holiday) and an extra trek would have been better. It would have been nice to have done a home stay with a family like the one in "Active Thailand". However the holiday was thoroughly enjoyed and the experience of camping and hotels was brilliant. The completion of Adams Peak was an achievement and along with visiting Sigiriya rock and all the temples, game parks seeing both elephants and a leopard, white water rafting and meeting the locals as we trekked was lovely. My highlight though was taking a walk along the beach in the early morning at the end of the tour and coming face to face with wild turtles in the water. Unexpected but most memorable. The baby elephants at the elephant sanctuary held a special place too which was an unplanned extra. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip though and would recommend to friends and already have, to yet another excellent tour by Explore. Thank you.
