I recommend the gibbon experience to everyone and anyone . It is unlike any trek that I have ever embarked on. Between the zip lining , hiking , sleeping in tree houses that are hundreds of feet in the air ... wow. Just wow .

The "Gibbon Experience" would be better titled "The Ziplining Experience," as it is clearly more about the zip-lining and staying in the treehouses than seeing wildlife - gibbons or otherwise. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but one should be realistic about expectations....More

We did the express tour with the guide Padthai and it was just amazing! In particular the guide made it a fun, safe and memorable experience for us. Thank you!

Took the express tour with lots of zip lining. The guides were very lively and the companions we met are very nice people. It's a rare experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The three day waterfall tour was a completely unique and brilliant experience. The treehouses have to be seen to be believed and the zip lines are exhilarating and offer fantastic views. Our guide spoke good English and looked after us well. Would highly recommend!
