Excellent centre for kayaking. We did a beginners whitewater kayak tour and it was our first time on fast flowing rivers. The guides were professional yet a lot of fun. They have a good rescue protocol setup for the bigger rapids when we were more likely to fall in, so we felt safe through the trip. We were also emailed photos of the trip. Recommended :)read more

Expert preparation, knowledgeable guides, vast experience in rafting. We were very pleased with the whole experience... Including how they managed the flipped rafting.

Booked cave and kayaking (no biking) trip at 10pm the night before, no problem. Had an amazing day, great scenery, excellent guides. The actual paddling time was more like 2 hours rather than 4-5 we believed it was going to be, but was just enough. Recommended!

I wish I could give 10 stars to this place, I’m so impressed by it. It’s well worth the money!

The river was crazy fun, in lush jungle and absolutely uncrowded! Thanks again for this experience, I will be back!

We went 10km rafting and had an amazing time out in the water. Apparently, the water level was a bit low, but we still had a lot of fun!

What a day!

Cool day trip from Chiang Mai, fun and experienced guides, beautiful nature, and good food!
We went off to the white water rafting, the river is a little low this time of year so small rapids but still lots of fun a few exhilarating moments but It was also lovely just to drift along and see elephants just happily eating on the river bank.
Excellent day out

Each of us was in the front of a kayak with a guide at the back steering. It was a dry season so the rafting was substituting for kayaks which I’m very glad it was! We passed a load of rafters from other companies getting stuck on every rock!I kayaked for a few years in Ireland and while I’m not great myself, I’ve seen some exceptional paddlers and the online service in Tripin-Thailand are right up with them!

Highly recommend 🙂

I have booked 2 kayaking trips with Tripin-Thailand twice now and I loved it both times. First I went with my wife, she went rafting and I went down the river in a kayak. The river is beautiful. Their guides and support people are attentive and always flashing that famous Thai Smile. Highly recommend 🙂

A first class adventure

This was our second visit, as we were there when they first opened and that was good. But they have gotten even better with a few years under their life-jackets. This is a first class adventure for anyone who loves being on the water and rafting or kayaking.

One of the highlights of our trip

This Kayaking experience was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide was very enthusiastic about showing us around and coaching us with kayaking. We absolutely a100% recommend this.
Chiang Dao Jungle with its pleasant currents and fun rapids. Nature is wonderful!

Instructors are wonderful

If you are like me and is a little nervous about the rapids, don’t be! The safety video, briefings, safety kayaks, and rope staffs completely put me at ease – they had great communication with each other and was more than ready to save you!
