Seamless service from airport pick up to drop off, with all in between

Seamless service. Great guides & tours. I especially liked going to local markets & lunch made by the local tribe at Doi Inthanon. I also like the philosophy of giving back and social responsibility that they have with their tours like the elephant sanctuary that provides a safe place for the animals.

Great but not flawless travel planner

Service rating : I had a wonderful time on my trip! Some thoughts:

Bangkok
Longtail boat ride was a highlight! Chinatown was okay. I think better lunch options would have helped. I wasn't very impressed with the Chinatown lunch options.

Ayutthaya
We really enjoyed...

Deceptive and misleading tour.

poche le cose positive

non molto comprensibile la politica di esigere tutto il pagamento prima dell'inizio del servizio. Il cliente deve fidarsi ciecamente del servicer, mentre sarebbe normale che si paghi una acconto alla conferma e il saldo all'effettivo inizio del tour.
La guida di Luang Prabang non aveva letto il programma di...

Great guide, good itinerary but not enough time and expensive

In the planning of my trip I got a lot of good ideas from Backyard travel. And they did a lot of work in trying to tailor a schedule to my needs.

Consider carefully what is offered and the overall cost.

Service rating : For what we received we were very disappointed with the cost. Yes, we visited what was listed but there were hiccups. Like, having to ask why we did not go to Plain of Jars 3 and then a hastily bit of organisation to actually go there later that afternoon. The reason - guide thought...
