This tour was absolutely one of the experiences I will never forget. M taught us so much about the culture of the Thai people and educated us about the history of the Buddha and each temple we visited. He went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, making pit stops and showing us the local foods so we can get our full Thai experience. His energy throughout the whole trip led the tour to be excited for the very next stop to our adventure. We went to Chiang Rai, which is the most beautiful temple I have ever seen in my life. After that, we went to the first temple in Thailand and also went on a boat and crossed the Mekong River which was a plus!! We briefly stayed on this island to see other beautiful statues. Overall, he truly cares about the tourists getting the best experience when they're in Thailand. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thanks for everything!

Great experience and the visits were really very pleasant Our guide really did everything to make it friendly A super hearty and delicious lunch to enhance our tour We also stopped near a hot spring on the way before going on the temples and the golden triangle From Chiang Mai, since it's not nearby, it's quite a bit of transport by minibus but frankly comfortable. Many thanks to our guide and the driver

My friends and I really enjoyed the tour! It was our last full day in Chiang Mai and it was a great way to spend it. We learned a lot from our tour guide, Mr. M, who was super nice and he even helped us out with good photo spots, too. Definitely recommend it, especially because it includes the Golden Triangle which is much less touristy than many other places (at least it was when we went).
