About Activities Host :

Chiang Mai Adventure was established in 1994 by a couple of local adventure expedition lovers. The company is a tour operator, not an agency, which means that the entire operation is controlled in house, guaranteeing a much higher quality service and experience in all areas, from customized tour design to risk assessment and safety controls. All staff, guides and instructors are Thais with a good understanding of their homeland and a great deal of experience in operating both tours and adventure activities. It brings them much happiness to show off their beautiful home to visitors and they do so with friendly enthusiasm. Many tours to Thailand come complete with plenty of tourist traps designed to part travellers from their cash. But avoiding them is easy with Chiang Mai Adventure’s guarantee that all activities will be fun, authentic and hassle free. Chiang Mai Adventure is a legal and trustworthy company legally registered with Thailand’s Tourism Authority (TAT). In 2004 we were honoured to receive the Tourism Award for Outstanding Performance for Inbound Tour Programmes by Thailand’s Ministry of Tourism and Sport and this was followed by the Excellent Rafting Standard in 2007.
