Awesome day on the trails
Jan 2021
I was so happy to find real trail heads in Chiang Mai. The tour was super fun and the description accurate. Guide took a lot of care, checked on the condition of the bike and individual settings, so that I got the most out of the ride. He shot some great photos and videos too.

Best in the business for biking, hiking, camping, anything outdoor
Dec 2020
Two of us did a full day of mountain biking and another day bespoke hiking, which was a climb up Pha Sam Liam mountain in Mae Taeng. I found Trailhead the best adventure activity organizer of any I've experienced during my 30 years living in Thailand. In addition to a superb product offering and quality equipment and provisions, their staff are the most customer-focused of any in the business. Several guides were dispatched on each activity to ensure there was one of them accompanying group members with varying degrees of speed and ability. They quickly assessed our skill and comfort levels and tailored the experiences completely around our abilities and preferences. Kom and James led our biking day; Lek, Vivi, and Kib led our hiking day. All of them are completely fluent in English, answered all queries with informed views on the ecosystems, and were warm and positive and made the events fun and rewarding. Extras like hot brewed mountain coffee on the trail and tasty trail lunches made us feel pampered. We also enjoyed participating in clothing distribution to the children of the hill village at the start of our hike - Trailhead contributes meaningfully to the communities in the areas they operate. Best outdoor adventure providers in the business - start here before all others.

Amazing mountain biking experience
Joined the Buffalo Soldier tour with Trailhead and was very impressed throughout, pick up was punctual, the bikes were in decent condition and the guides spoke excellent English. The tour wasn't to challenging and took us through some stunning scenery including farms, jungle and a pretty mountain village where we stopped for a coffee. Very professional set up and a great time of year to mountain bike in Chiang Mai with slightly cooler weather and lush green forest. It rained a bit but thats no issue for me. Highly recommend!

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We're glad you enjoyed our Buffalo Soldier tour and appreciate your feedback about your amazing mountain biking experience. The Buffalo Soldier tour is the right mix of a decent challenge but achievable for the less experienced mountain biker, the weather is perfect in October with temperatures 10 degrees cooler. Thanks for the recommendation and we hope you can join us again some time.

First time I’ve been mountain biking and it was spectacular. The views, interacting with local people on stops, the thrill of conquering the trail? It was an experience of a lifetime. Lek and Kom were steady, informative and fun. I highly recommend any tour with them.

25 K trail ride in Doi Sudhep-phi National Park
Nov 2019 • Solo
This was my first time on a trail ride. Amazing experience all around. Guide was super friendly, knowledgeable and gave me lots of riding tips. Wiped out once going downhill on a turn.....over the handle bar and landed with bike on top....only a bruised body( and ego) but challenging and fun for my 60th birthday.
Highly recommend Trailhead

Awesome Jungle Cycling Experience
Oct 2019
We booked this day to have a full on day of cycling but hopefully not too arduous for the 50-something Dad accompanying two boys of 10 and 12! We are not hardcore mountain bikers by any means, but we are reasonably fit/competent nonetheless. It was a long but very fulfilling day. Even the mishaps (broken pedal before we had left the drop-off and punctures near the end) just added to the experience. Trailhead collected us from our hotel, plied us with drink at their shop and drive the hour plus to the top of the national park mountain. Friendly, skilled and encouraging throughout. 4.5 hours of cycling over 25km down (and up!) the mountains was hard work but well worth it. The kids had a great experience and I didn't die - so that's good. Mr. Chu our guide was awesome and catered to our abilities well. Dan was our contact via email and the whole booking, support and query process was really well handled. Just got the photos and videos they took on the day and they create a great record of a terrific day.

Awesome experience
Sep 2019 • Solo
This company and there people are amazing, wish I had more days with them. The infrastructure is good no problems shop vehicles are top quality. The trail I went on was in the UK a good blue/ red, especially red on climbs short and brutal, Kom my guide was a beast also knowledgeable and fun. Mostly farm tracks depending on the size of the water troughs running through and loose surface can make it fun and technical. In summary the perfect ride for an opening gambit, riding enjoyable with a few technical challenges and amazing scenery and the noise.. Not to touristy for bikers a must do.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We're glad you had an awesome time with Trailhead Thailand! We do try to go the extra mile to offer a high quality service and equipment so its nice to see you appreciated that. Our Buffalo Solider tour does present a few challenges in the rainy season as you mention but for those seeking an introduction to Chiang Mai mountain biking its a good option for those with experience. Thanks again and we hope you can join us again in the future.
