Me & 2 of my friends have recently done the 2-day tour with Jit & Piroon.
First, I need to stress Jit's incredible hospitality. She picked us at the airport on our arrival, adviced on a good place to eat, recommended a massage place, etc. She even drove us to Tiger Kingdom. Thai people are overall nice & friendly, but Jit is truly even beyond that!
The tour itself was awesome. We were seeking some off beaten path experience and it was the right choice!
The start of the tour was a bit rough though - quite a bit of driving to get to the starting point while sitting on a pick-up truck. Not much fun & really tiring. But what follows after pays off! Trekking through the mountains, serene Karen villages, delicisious food prepared by locals, adventurous bamboo rafting, etc. All just great!!
Our guide - Mike, was a great companion. He was very nice, caring & helpful all the time througout the trip. He was born in Karen village, knows all the villagers personally as well as all the area. And he spoke good english!
After we finished the tour, Mike took us for a Thai box match and showed us around a bit. We had real fun & highly appreciate his hospitality.
I have done several private tours in Asia, this one was by far the best!
