Description:

Next Step Thailand, previously known as Travel with Joe, was founded by...

Next Step Thailand, previously known as Travel with Joe, was founded by Samart (Joe), a native of Chiang Mai who has 10 years experience in Thailand's tourism industry. With licensed, English-speaking local staff we provide a wide range of adventure and cultural enrichment to meet your travel needs. Each one of our staff holds special knowledge or skills in areas such as Thai cooking, ethnic hilltribe customs, Buddhist beliefs and more. We can customize your tour package to include exposure to any of our unique experiences.

At Next Step Thailand, all activities and tours support the local communities by visiting only locally owned businesses (such as elephant villages or hilltribes), ensuring that your investment benefits the local people. We also donate 15% of all profits to support community projects, such as Share the Dream Project, which brings educational programs to hilltribe villages.

Next Step Thailand supports the three strands of sustainability - social, economic and environmental. By supporting fair-trade practices in the community and paying our staff fairly, we have built a friendly, reliable and knowledgeable team who will go the extra mile to make your visit special. We also aim to be as environmentally responsible as possible and do everything in our power to ensure our operations do not have a detrimental impact on the environment.

In a city where you can easily be pulled into tourist traps, this experience felt very authentic and exposed my husband and I to the people who live in the countryside of Chiang... More

We booked the 3-day/2-nights trek to Doi Inthanon about a month in advance. The company's site is very well maintained, and the whole process was very straightforward. We paid using PayPal (yay!) - and Samart the manager was very professional and helpful in our mailing exchange. Our driver and guide picked us up from our guesthouse on time - we... More

This was a HUGE highlight of our stay in Thailand. Mr Boon was incredible and very knowledgeable on the area. We would highly recommend this to anyone going out to Chiangmai. It helped that the organization gives back to their community as well by donating some of their proceeds. Thanks again for this unforgettable experience! Cheers!

The views were amazing from the three viewpoints at the top of the hills. Samart and his team did a great job of taking care of us. They made sure that we were safe while enjoying ourselves. They also made great pad Thai from scratch for us during lunch! It was a great hike and we did not see any... More

I spent three days hiking in the national park near Chiang Mai January 2016 and the time spent was great! I was only together with another Australian girl, so we got very personal trip, and got to learn about the local villages and their culture. Visited a school, homes, coffee breweries, tomato plants... Guides were very friendly and I would... More

It was one of the best school trips! I have to thank Samart for his amazing personality, and hospitality. It was very fun for us highschool kids at that time to be treking, cycling, elephant riding, rafting with samart. We were never exhausted because we were always rewarded with deliscious thai meals. I would love to do it again! great... More
