We really enjoy the day. the guide was nice and very helpful. The only thing is that it is a very very long day and tiring. I would recommend to do this excursion in 2 days and to overnight in the north. All the visit were too short to explore, admire and appreciate the sites. We did not have time to visit the gallery of the artist at the the White temple.

Excellent trip but a long day, the visit to the white temple was our main reason to take this tour absolutely fabulous building and we'll worth the visit, would definitely recommend the visit. Good guide and driver, nice lunch on the way, water provided. Golden triangle also very informative and worth the visit could have done with a little more time at the museum there but in the main very enjoyable.

This trip was great! We enjoyed each part of the trip and our guide was amazing (his name is Arrow)! Arrow guided us through the temples and answered any questions we had with great enthusiasm. The white temple was extraordinary (a modern temple) and very worthwhile. The boat ride was a lot of fun at the golden triangle and we enjoyed seeing the Old temple, as it was a huge contrast to the White Temple. All in all we recommend this day trip.
