General rating of our travelers on all ODASIE tours since 2008.
The agency were faultless in arranging the taxi and guide services. Good choice of hotels. Marveallous trip to the Land of Smiles. The kindness of the Thai people. Succulent cuisine, a real discovery. The beauty of the natural and cultural sites. Very friendly guides with an excellent local knowledge. Thank you in particular to Thibo for putting together our programme last minute. Thank you too to the staff at Odasie for getting us to Bangkok for our flights that had been brought forward due to the corona virus.
Our trip to Thailand had a very good balance of relaxation and activities.
We were in the Khao Sok National Park and then a very nice hotel (Nangthong Bay) in the beach resort of Khao Lak
Visits to the Surin Islands (paradise, splendid corals)
Then the Community Lodge Khao Sok in the jungle and in an hotel on stilts on the lake, Keeree tara, very good, splendid ambience
Then by the river / mangrove in Krabi. Superb kayaking
Visit to the Kho Hong paradise islands!
Krabi Hotel Sainai beach in Ao Nang beach beach resort
We were not able to continue to Kho Lanta as planned because of the state of emergency declared on 26th March due to Covid-19. We managed to fly home on 31st March with Thai Airways as planned but it was quite a fraut time since many flights had been cancelled.
All of this was arranged by the team at Odasie who also found us an hotel in Phuket while we were waiting for our flight.
Odasie really knew how to turn our wishes into reality. Even at the start of the pandemic, they were available to modify our trip very professionally. We can only recommend them. This trip will remain the best one we have ever been on, and we've been on quite a few...I strongly recommend them.
We left for 15 days just before it was no longer possible to leave, and we also returned just before it was no longer possible to come back, all because of Nico and his agency ( Kha punk khrap !)
The advice before departure and the arrangement once we were there - drivers, choice of hotels and the care provided by Nico and his team, all contributed to our magical 15 days around the islands south of Phuket as well as the marvellous day at Phang Nga Bay. And their arrangement still enabled us to get home before all the flights were grounded.
We will certainly return and very probably with Nico and Odasie
Our adventure is over and we have just arrived back home to Lyon
It was an unforgettable family holiday and this largely due to you
We are completely satisfied with the arrangement from start to finish because there were no issues :
The choice of hotels was in line with what we expected; the extra activities (the bike tour in Bangkok, the homestay experience, the night in the house on stilts and especially the elephants)
Despite the complications due to the corona virus, we still had a great time because there were so few people
We appreciated the luxury of having a driver and a French speaking guide
The end of the trip in the Krabi was a paradise beyond our expectations
Thank you very much to the whole team
Perhaps see you again on our next trip
We are very satisfied with the choices we made with Nico in terms of the places we chose to visit, in particular the islands of Koh Yao Noi, Koh Kradan and Koh Jum. Especially since the situation at the moment had lead to a decrease in the number of tourists visiting, so it was very quiet. A very pleasent rhythm for a couple of seniors aged 72 and 78. Our contact, Nico was always available if we needed anything.
This was our fourth trip so we decided to pass on the cultural side and spent the whole time resting and reading.
An extraordinary trip which met all our expectations : cultural visits, landscapes, activities adapted for children under 10, the hotels and transfers... as if you had organised it in every detail but without the worry of having missed something or taken the wrong mode of transport. This was our first trip with Evanéos (normally I arrange everything myself), what peace of mind ! We all loved this trip and are hoping to return to Thailand
Arrival in Bangkok, a city that never stops !! Scorching heat and polluted !! Life at 100 miles an hour !! The best was the bike ride in old Bangkok !! Where you wouldn't go if you were alone!! Then Katchanabury , a guide who spoke excellent French, then to the Erawan Waterfalls, a magnificent place and then on to the hot springs at Hindad, 40 degrees of course !! A night in a floating bunk and then the next day spending time with elephants !!! Then to Amphawa for the floating market and the Meaklong train !! Fantastic !! All the hotels were great!! And the Thai people are charming !! Then night train where you sleep like a baby as the train rocks !! And finally, Kho Phangan a dream island !!!
We had a great trip. Everything went smoothly, it was a perfect mix between culture and relaxation.Well arranged by the agency,and good communication. We visited Thailand from Bangkok to the North and South and were surprised by the diversity of landscape and culture. We truly recommend it.
Seeing many different parts and sides of Thailand. A lot of different and great types of activities, especially Bangkok by Bike and cooking classes in Khum Lanna. Nice hotels, the guides in Bangkok and Chiang Mai were really friendly and well-informed. Having guides and drivers was a plus. No stress related to travelling around.
Our trip went very smoothly. The meet-up timing and the activities were all done according to plan, and by very professional guides and drivers. The choice of activities was perfect. Special mention for the elephant sanctuary which was very emotional and our family will never forget it. The bike trip in Bangkok, which seemed to us to be impossible because of all the traffic turned out to be enchanting. Another memorable moment was learning about the basics of Thai cooking together with the family that was so kind. Our aim to visit the off the beaten track areas was achieved. We will definitely do it again !!
