The driver and guide were at the hotel on time. It worked out great to buy the entry tickets and then get to the right location before sunrise so that we could get the most beautiful pictures possible with as few people as possible. The guide has fun with his work. He was able to convey the historical, cultural and religious background well. He spoke English well, even if we had to get used to the pronunciation. The driver let us out at one point and picked us up again at another. This was especially practical and efficient to see 5 temples in time. You can't do that on your own. Especially since it gets oppressively hot at midday. The car was also air conditioned. We were well supplied with water and in between we were also given cooling towels for the face.

Great experience . The guide was very informative. The driver was polite and gave cold wet rags to clean and cool down after every stop. The tour is very long and it’s extremely hot. I would suggest bringing an extra shirt. They also provide you with water throughout the entire trip which is nice.

Alltogether great experience!! It doesnt matter if there is no Floating season- just Experience this Special Place! Tear Great Job, alltogether Great group! 😉😉😇

Awesome day! The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. He seems to enjoy what he does and is caring.

Baboon and Mr. Tea were very knowledgeable, informative, and friendly. Baboon made the experience.
