This trip was an amazing experience and I am really happy that I got a chance to go on this tour. The package is very well thought out and they for sure surpassed my expectations.
Bond the tour guide is exceptional! He is very knowledgeable about the environment and was there to answer all our questions along our trek. Though the trip is very well organized Bond is the personality which lifts the bar far above expectations. He is extremely thoughtful and was always a step ahead of us when it came to amenities we needed throughout the day. Walking sticks, fresh coconut water, and snacks, was always offered at the most perfect time. He also did a great job with balancing the skill level of the group. He made sure that each person went at a safe pace without slowing down the rest of the team. I literally don’t know how he does it but as I said I throughly enjoyed the day and would be happy to do it again.
The trek offers a great workout which takes you deep into the rain forest. Bond was able to identify all the wildlife, trees, waterfalls informing us of the way some plants and trees were used by the Thai people in the past . This is not a trip where your day is filled with seeing other tourist. After trekking through the mountains we then went kayaking through the mangroves. It was my first time Kayaking and I really enjoyed it. We later went to this beautiful restaurant nestled in the mountains for lunch. The food was amazing and the view was exceptional. I really don’t think I would have found all these amazing quiet spots without going on outings planned by CC’s hideaway. We ended the day with a well needed dip in hot and cold pools. It was the perfect activity after having such an active day. My muscles thanked me. We ended the day with watching the sunset on a remote beach. It was exactly what was needed to reflect and process our day. If you made it this far in the review just go for it and book it!
