Learning the role of a 'mahout' in Chiang Mai, Thailand

We've arranged hundreds of trips in over 100 countries across the globe and excited to share these and other experiences with others.  If we've not been there, we have most definitely created a program in the destination and have great knowledge to help design a program tailored toward your desires. After completing the Traveler Profile Form above, please let us know where and when you'd like to travel with us by completing the form below.

We suggest you obtain traveler's insurance for your trip (or the annual plan) and can provide a quotation to you. Most traveler's insurance plans need to be confirmed and paid within 15 days of booking confirmation for pre-existing conditions to be considered. We recommend Travel Guard for traveler's insurance.

Should your journey require a passport or visa, we are here to help. Some countries require an authorization letter, of which we will provide if you have an alternative service, all of which will be explain during the confirmation process.  We recommend Travel Document Systems for passport & visa needs.

Every destination, hotel, transportation provider, guides, etc., has different deposit policies. Should there be more restrictive terms for deposit and final payments than listed below, this will be identified during the planning process. Our deposit policies are the following:

  • Twenty-five percent (25%) due at the time of confirmation
  • Final payment due 120 days prior to departure

Cancellation policies vary with every destination, hotel, transportation provider, guides, etc., however we will always do our best to return as much as possible either through a refund or future travel credit.
