I have done a number of Geckos trips now and this would be one of my highlights. There were only 5 of us during the Thailand and Laos component and this was an ideal number. The group expanded to 10 in Cambodia, and unfortunately, there were 1 or 2 passengers who needed a lesson in cultural awareness and sensitivity. This however, is not an issue Geckos can control, and it didn't affect my enjoyment of the experience, it was just an embarrassment to me as they were of the same nationality as myself. I felt like apologizing for their behavior.

overall great activities and great to travel with enthusiastic travelers I don't mind travelling for a few hours in a bus or train but a full day of that is too much. 1 person and myself ended up dropping the overnight train and took a flight from ChiangRai to Bangkok instead. otherwise it would have been a full day of travelling.
