We are an Aussie couple in our 30s, we liked this tour, but didn't love it. We felt that this tour would have been better if it was compacted into a shorter day (there is a lot of waiting around) or could have made some of the stops more interesting. Also the trip to and from the national park is 1.5 hours each way, the guide could have 'pumped up' the tourists by chatting to us, having us all introduce ourselves, playing some music or educating us along the way, instead we sat in silence and never really got chatting.
The waterfalls were beautiful and we made sure to walk around and have a really in depth look from every angle possible. We had been after a few days of heavy rain which made for a great view.
Next stop was the highest point of Thailand, it is surprisingly cold so believe them when they tell you to take a jacket and dress appropriately.
The hike as well was really good, you don't see much of a view through the clouds but watching the clouds move around you is very interesting. There were lots of stops along the way meaning the hike takes longer than it needs to. The pagodas and gardens were very pretty, but given they don't actually have much history (only built in the 80s/90s I was underwhelmed). The Thai lunch was basic. Next was the markets which seems like an unneccessary stop, the prices vary from stall to stall but it is all the same products (wine and dried fruit) this would actually be more interesting as a tasting tour as opposed to a market stall. Then there was coffee tasting in a hill tribe, however once again I think it could be made more interesting, perhaps if we tasted the different products whilst learning about them (instead of learning and then tasting them by ourselves), also an opportunity to maybe order a normal coffee of our choice to go made with their beans (espresso martini anyone?). All in all, it wasn't a bad tour, but it definitely could be improved with a shorter interary, or if the intinerary was kept to this length, it needs the stops to be more interesting and definitely needs a more enthusiastic/energetic tour guide.
