Our experienced group of local tour-guides

Daro tours is founded by Damrong Katu in 2018. "I started as a tour operator, not only because we love Northern Thailand and its beautiful nature, but also to connect you with our local communities and nature in an authentic way." Daro tours is working together with local tour guides and people from hill-tribe villages in Northern Thailand.
This way you support tourism in regions with not many paid jobs when you book a tour with us. 

Our team is made up of well-experienced, English-speaking guides who are certified by the
Tourism Authority of Thailand with a TAT license. 
All profits raised by Daro Tours remain in our local communities.

DAMRONG KATU
Tour-guide / co-founder

"What I love about my job is giving people an unforgettable experience they will never forget in their lifetime. 
I am born in a small rural,
self-sufficient Karen village in Wiang Haeng. Nature is very important to us. As a kid, we learned to hunt and make tools from bamboo and other natural materials in the village."

Daro his passion for his culture and nature sent him on a different journey after he graduated in plant science.
He decided to become a tour guide so he could show the people how important our connection with nature is. ​
