Reviews

Great experience from beginning to end, beyond my expectations. From the pre-trip communications up to the very end of the trip it was a terrific way to see Thailand off the beaten path with an experienced guide who was a wonderful tour leader.

On a personal level, I would like to say that all the pre-trip communication with Gems was fantastic; very thorough, patient and professional. I felt if this is an indication of the company, I'm signing up for the tour!

Then, Nat, our guide, was simply terrific. Kind, knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. He made every day of the trip a pleasure and really was at the core of my great experience with SpiceRoads. Mr Pong, the driver, was there in the background, always helpful and kind, with a smile. In short, the staff was first rate and really made my first trip with SpiceRoads a very successful one in my eyes. Loved every minute of it.

Overall it was an awesome trip (our second) and we will not hesitate to recommend the company to others and probably look at a third tour. The route was great and your guides and drivers are superb. It would be great to see a Spice Road team at the Phuket triathlon.

It was a great experience. We enjoyed how the tour started through the rural villages of Surathani Khanom the jungle resort etc etc. and finished in Aonang Krabi. This gave us good time to relax and enjoy more food and do personal shopping.

The guys really showed us the Thailand cuisine, the aromas, flavours and colour were exceptional! To top that all off they even got us to try the sweets, which we all enjoyed as well.

Other things we enjoyed were seeing the rubber plantation, the monkey up the tree getting coconuts and the elephant rides. The guides really showed us what Thailand has to offer, the food, the culture and richness of the country!
