Description:

Next Step Thailand, previously known as Travel with Joe, was founded by...

Next Step Thailand, previously known as Travel with Joe, was founded by Samart (Joe), a native of Chiang Mai who has 10 years experience in Thailand's tourism industry. With licensed, English-speaking local staff we provide a wide range of adventure and cultural enrichment to meet your travel needs. Each one of our staff holds special knowledge or skills in areas such as Thai cooking, ethnic hilltribe customs, Buddhist beliefs and more. We can customize your tour package to include exposure to any of our unique experiences.

At Next Step Thailand, all activities and tours support the local communities by visiting only locally owned businesses (such as elephant villages or hilltribes), ensuring that your investment benefits the local people. We also donate 15% of all profits to support community projects, such as Share the Dream Project, which brings educational programs to hilltribe villages.

Next Step Thailand supports the three strands of sustainability - social, economic and environmental. By supporting fair-trade practices in the community and paying our staff fairly, we have built a friendly, reliable and knowledgeable team who will go the extra mile to make your visit special. We also aim to be as environmentally responsible as possible and do everything in our power to ensure our operations do not have a detrimental impact on the environment.

If you are looking for something simple, different, off-the-usual-tourist-sites and still up for a relaxing holiday to recharge your energy, look no further. This is the right page for you. I found Spicy Villa and NextStep Thailand by pure chance. My trip included a visit to Karen tribe and a few more outdoor activities in the area. My guide Boon... More

I probably spent 10 hours researching companies and trying to decide which one to go with for my jungle trek in Thailand. I finally chose Next Step Thailand, and am SO glad that I did. The actual experience was so much better than can really be conveyed online. My girlfriend and I were accompanied by 2 guides throughout the trek.... More

We booked this through With Locals and were a little disappointed to see that it was a big company rather than a local thing but still enjoyed it. Except for the biking, my twin 6 year olds were able to do everything - they didn't have bikes small enough for the kids and we did some road biking which would... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review! I'm happy to read that you enjoyed the time with your guide and hiking in the countryside. On the other hand, it saddens me to read about the treatment of elephants while you were at the local camp. It's very important to me and everyone else in our... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Next Step Thailand. We booked a 3 day Doi Inthanon trekking, 1 day Chiang Dao cave and 1 day Chae Son trekking. We found this experience to be not only invigorating, but very informative. The interactions with local guides was unique. They were able to point out local vegetation and herbs,... More

The two-day Lanna trip organized through Next Step Thailand was a highlight of my two week honeymoon and an experience I will remember for a long time. In a city where you can easily be pulled into tourist traps, this experience felt very authentic and exposed my husband and I to the people who live in the countryside of Chiang... More

I did the 2 day inthanon trekking trip on my own with this company and had the most amazing experiences. This activity was the highlight of my experience in Thailand that lasted 5 months which says a lot about this company.

We booked the 3-day/2-nights trek to Doi Inthanon about a month in advance. The company's site is very well maintained, and the whole process was very straightforward. We paid using PayPal (yay!) - and Samart the manager was very professional and helpful in our mailing exchange. Our driver and guide picked us up from our guesthouse on time - we... More

This was a HUGE highlight of our stay in Thailand. Mr Boon was incredible and very knowledgeable on the area. We would highly recommend this to anyone going out to Chiangmai. It helped that the organization gives back to their community as well by donating some of their proceeds. Thanks again for this unforgettable experience! Cheers!

Wow where to begin. We hiked through the rainforest and padi fields! swam in waterfalls! pet some elephants we saw along the way. Went canoeing down the river and saw a ton of local villagers and elephants down the river! We ate local thai cuisine and even tried Hornets in a curry. Surprisingly delicious! The tour guide was very knowledgable... More
