Chiang Mai a la Carte

Our company has two brands: Chiang Mai a la Carte and Green Trails. Chiang Mai a la Carte offers unique and unusual private tours throughout the whole country. Our tours focus on Thai culture, history, food, community-based tourism, archaeology, festivals, and more. Customization is our strength. We go the extra mile and go to places where few other people go.

Green Trails organizes private tours and trekking to national parks and hill tribe villages in Chiang Mai and North Thailand.  These trips are adventurous, interactive, and respectful of the environment and local culture. Green Trails also specializes in educational tours for schools and universities. We will invite you to meet the people of Thailand. Join us on one of our trips for an experience of a lifetime.”

We want to preserve the samlor as Chiang Mai Heritage

Since 2016 we have offered samlor (bicycle taxi) tours to support the last remaining drivers of Chiang Mai. There used to be hundreds of them on the streets of Chiang Mai. Just as in other cities in South East Asia motorized traffic has pushed the samlor to the brink of extinction. We hope that a new generation of drivers will take over and you can help us. Please join of our tours. You won’t regret it!
