It's no secret that Thailand boasts tropical beaches and jungle-clad islands but travellers will soon discover there's a whole lot more to this old favourite.

Beyond the soaring skyscrapers of Bangkok, you’ll find charming scenes of rural life aplenty, from the farming communities of central Thailand to the hill tribes of Chiang Rai. With a rich cultural heritage heavily influenced by the wide-spread practice of Buddhism, saffron-clad monks and gleaming temples are a familiar sight throughout the country.

Discover Thailand's most popular places on an escorted group tour departing in 2019 and 2020, with the chance to visit during the Yi Peng Festival, or design your perfect culture and beach holiday with our tailor-made service.

This was my first experience travelling on a tour.

The booking process was made easy aided by Caroline who was very helpful and prompt to respond to my enquiries.

The hotels were centrally placed and good quality

Mhoi our tour guide in Thailand was exceptional. He prepared us beforehand for the days events, shared lots of historical, cultural and local knowledge, very attentive and available to the group. ”  

Gene White • Submitted 16 Nov 2018

An amazing experience. Difficult to say what the best bits were as the whole experience was exceptional. It felt like we really did get to understand Thailand and the people and it now has a permanent place on our hearts. Would recommend On the Go Tours to everybody after this. ”  

Ian Bartlett • Submitted 12 Nov 2018

A very well organised tour covering most of the destinations that we wanted to see other than the beach side ones. The guide Mhor was excellent, very knowledgeable, courteous and very accommodating.

All key landmarks in Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai were covered well with enough personal time allowed.

The accommodation was clean and spacious at all locations, loved our experience staying on the River Kwai. Looking forward to booking our next trip with this company. A fellow traveller, a young Kiwi was doing his fourth tour with On the Go!”
