A perfect holiday for a family with two teenage sons. John our tour leader was just amazing and a made our holiday one with memories we'll treasure forever.

From the hustle and bustle of the Grand Temple in Bangkok to the well paced trek in the hills there wasn't an aspect of the holiday that didn't work like clockwork.

There was something for everyone in this jam-packed tour but we never felt rushed; staying with local families in the hills, bathing rescued elephants, seeing the young monks' ordination ceremony, boating, snorkelling, swimming nearly every day, bartering, overnight train rides, tuk tuks, learning to cook Thai food, even experiencing a mud facial and Thai massages.

For families wanting to create memories to last a lifetime, this was a great holiday so much so that we've decided to book a similar for one for 2017.

This tour was everything we hoped it would be and so much more. Explore's organisation was commendable, with so many excursions and transport arrangements to make on a daily basis, everything ran like clockwork. We were treated like VIPs and the tour was seamless. The highlights were numerous but to select just a few, the trek was fabulous with informative guides and beautiful countryside, well off the beaten track; the villages were amazing and it was a real experience for the family staying there with the pigs and cockerels underneath! The elephant ride and visit to the sanctuary were magical and the cookery course with the enthusiastic chef was a treat, even for the children. Pok was in every way a credit to Explore. He was knowledgeable, informative, patient, totally unflappable, flexible and friendly. He appeared to enjoy being with us whilst continually planning trips and reservations for us. He not only led us but cooked for us, made elephant dung for us, built bamboo tables and cups etc. He taught us so much about Thai culture, life in the villages, how resourceful they are with the nature around them and we felt privileged to have been able to see some local ordinations of monks and village life. I'd happily recommend Pok for future tours.

Getting a broad sense of the Thai culture from a number of different perspectives was the most interesting thing for me. Especially so as our guide, Pok, was both knowledgeable and lived his philosophy of Karma! He was attentive to us all equally and responded to our various needs in an unflustered and mindful manner which was impressive to observe. Well done to him. The scenery was fantastic and food cheap and lovely! Very good - see my comments above. Organised lots of travel and a diversity of activities with grace!

The highlight of the trip was the trip itself and all the varied experiences it brought, from Bangkok to rainforest and everything in between. The itinerary covered the extremes of the country from the very energetic, loud and bright Bangkok (with its tuk tuks and it's own extremes of shacks and 5 start hotels), the northern towns and cities being much quieter or laid back, the hill tribes with origins from Burma and Tibet and the modern beach resorts.
Two things brought it all together - the food and the people!
There is a lot of travelling involved but that itself is an experience and nearly always comfortable.
We went in the rainy season so expect to get wet (occasionally), and muddy !
