There is no doubt that...

There is no doubt that this is one of the best rides I have done in Asia. A great mixture of off road and on road riding around the islands of Phuket and Koh Samui. The off road tracks are well graded and wide enough to handle all but the biggest adventure bikes.

We highly recommend 10 Days Southern Thailand as an adventure ride that was a pleasure to create, and is a pleasure to ride.

I had such a blast on the tour! The guides were awesome, super friendly and rad people that I'm sad I didn't get to know better. The accommodations were pretty solid as well, with some nice hotels, and some really nice little bungalows tucked away in the hills of Koh Samui. The food was delicious, and there was always plenty of it. I ate like a fat kid in Thailand...

The tour guide's knowledge of the area and it's history, along with the friendly and fun nature of the group was a real highlight for me.

I have been on a lot of bike tours in my time, this was by far the best by a wide margin. I have done similar tours in Vietnam and Borneo, but this was just fantastic. The guide was great, the food was excellent. The accommodation and support was first class. But what made it so good was that it was so well organized. The way the route was mapped out allowed us to get max pleasure from great scenic rides through very picturesque countryside, with some awesome

I did a 10 day Southern Thailand Explorer tour with my boyfriend, and we had the best time. The rides were difficult at times but also really fun - definitely not boring! The guide was awesome and is a great photographer. We both had a great time, saw amazing places, met cool people (like you!), and had the most amazing time on our first big trip together. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for an adventure in Thailand!
