Herman was/is a top shelf guide. Not only in taking us through the jungle, but when the riding day was done, we had awesome accommodation. Beers afterwards, we learned about the history/geology/ and maybe a bit about about Herman too. Definitely a must if coming to Thailand. Thank you Herman

"Unbelievable experience! Highly recommended :) "
The tour with Hermann was incredible, surpassed all expectations. He is VERY knowledgeable of the region and terrain, needless to say the entire are is drop dead gorgeous and has a variety of sceneries and terrains for motorcycling. Jungles, rivers, clay, dirt, paved road, valleys, mountains, grass, rock... everything. I have to admit I underestimated the physicality of the experience, this is NOT a motorcycle- sight seeing tour, this is a VERY physically challenging enduro tour. Hermann will not push you past your limits, he is very reasonable and will give you your money's worth. The motorcycles are in great condition, it challenges your riding skills if off road is not your main style, but overall incredibly rewarding and peaceful, even if you're drained by the end of the day haha. Also, the lodging and meals are EXCELLENT, beautiful, individual cabins or bungalows, and local meals that are beyond delicious and varied. Can't praise the experience enough, highly recommended and hopefully will do again sometime next year.

"4 day trip"
We've done the 4 day trip around Phrao, Chiang Dao and Pai. We rode beautiful off road trails at the right level for us. The bikes were in perfect condition. Our guide Hermann is a really nice guy and he speaks german, english and thai. Always making jokes with the locals. He can also tell a lot about the Thai and the environment which is a really big plus. I'm gonna miss our beers and daily stops at the coffeeshop. Cheers!

Ich fand die Tour in das Outback von Chiang Mai und besonders der Phrao Gegend Hammer. Die saftig grünen Dschungelpassagen und Dörfer die du durchquerst kannst du sonst nicht entdecken, einfach nur beeindruckend. Die Übernachtung oberhalb des Phraotal mit überwältigendem Ausblick vergisst Mann/Frau nicht so schnell. Hermann kurvte mich sicher und top orientiert durch diese beeindruckende Gegend zu einem echt fairen Preis- Leistungsverhältnis. Die 250er Kawasaki KLX- ich gebs zu, ich steh auf bissi mehr Power - ist top gewartet und lässt sich sehr geschmeidig durchs Gelände manovrieren. Ist somit für Beginner und Fortgeschrittene Leute ein zuverlässiges Reisegefährt.
Also wer überlegt ne Enduro Runde Nähe Chiang Mai zu starten ist bei Hermann und Phrao Outdoor Adventure's perfekt aufgehoben

"2 day tour around Phrao/north of Chiang Mai with Hermann"
I enjoyed the adventure and the sights with a good mix of different riding surfaces from tar,concrete,gravel and clay to sand (with a good dose of potholes with and without water). Hermann kept the tour flexible to my level of (in)experience and is a very experienced rider so you feel confident with him there. Hermann also adds to the fun with some interesting stories about his experiences in Thailand. A fun trip which is recommended if you want to get off the tourist route, have some adventure and see some beautiful sights!
