This tour was a great way to start the day. The view of Wat Phrat That Doi Suthep and the view over Chiang Mai during sunrise were definitely worth getting up early. The early morning experience of the three so different yet connected temples gave it something magical. Our tour guide Paulina did a fantastic job telling us about the history and answering the group’s question. She managed for everyone to have a wonderful experience. Thank you!

The tour was super complete and informative! Our tour guide Faith was funny, caring and took the time the answer our questions. The experience of watching the sunrise was just surreal!! One important fact is that the timing was perfect. The success of this trip is that all participants are ready on time (you get an email the night before informing the real pick up time). If everyone is on time, you will be able to enjoy every single aspect of the tour and especially watching the amazing sunrise. Wat phra lat was also a hidden gem that we appreciated to visit.

We had a great time with our guide Jeibbie- she gave great information at the various sites, and in particular these temples were a great cross-section of the different architectural and historical styles in Chiang Mai. The 530am start is worth it as the sunrise at Doi Suthep is beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great way to spend a morning in Chiang Mai that hits some of the best temples in and near the city.
