Bangkok – Ayudhaya‚ 2nights
Tour Overview :
Our speciality is "off-the-beaten-track" arrangement: soft adventure, activity holidays and any special interest packages. In 1982, long before the world had heard of eco-tourism we operated our first ornithological tours in Thailand's natinal parks and with the knowledge gained from organising such specialised itineraries we have built a range of products that can cater to almost any special interest. Whether it is trekking in remote regions, cruising, rafting or scuba diving; bird watching, an agricultural study tour or a spa & meditation course, we can do it.
