Who do we work with

This section contains information about our partners and about who we enjoy working with. We have our three sister branches: Chiang Mai a la Carte, Lanna Cycling Tours and Tong Bai Elephant tour. Chiang Mai a la Carte is organising customized tours in Chiang Mai and North Thailand. These tours can be adventurous but can also be more cultural, culinary, historical and so on. Chiang Mai a la Carte doesn’t offer standard tours but will design a tour for you totally ‘tailor-made’

Lanna Cycling Tours is organising cycling tours in the countryside outside Chiang Mai. Lanna Cycling Tours focuses on rural areas where it is safe to ride a bicycle. Lanna Cycling Tours avoids cycling in the city.

Tong Bai Elephant Tour organises a fun and educational tour in co-operation with the Tong Bai Elephant Foundation. Tours are only on Wednesday and Saturday. These tours are small group tours. The maximum is nine persons. This guarantees a high quality and exclusive elephant experience. There is no riding at all. The small group size is also good for the elephants who get confused by too many visitors.

We have numerous partners we work with, from foundations to attractions. We work with the Naka Elephant Foundation, the Elephant Poo Poo Paper Park and Elephant Parade.

Travelife is a fair and affordable system which helps tour operators and travel agencies to manage and improve social and environmental impacts  by complying with sustainability criteria. Ultimately, when a company meets the requirements, it will receive a Travelife award. Green Trails is a Travelife partner.

We have been working with the Community Based Tourism Institute for a number of years and have good relations with them. We also have been a member of the Mekong Responsible Tourism network for many years.
