Danae (our tour guide) was super fun, and the Kayak experience was great! We really enjoyed watching the sun set along the Ping River and the route he took us on showed us a bit of river life. My friend and I kayaked a bit too fast, and so we went a little further than normal to ensure that we were on the river for an appropriate amount of time.

The tour was amazing and exceeded expectations. The tour guide was extremely attentive, not only providing the history and story behind each temple but also the importance of them for the local communities. He also educated us on the values and philosophy of Buddhism. Definitely one of the best tours we've experienced in Thailand.

The street food market tour was really nice. The guide Sunny was super friendly and explained everything about all the meals that we had. We had so much good food. For me it was incredible since without the tour I would try so many different dishes from Thailand.

It was last minute but it was soo worth it! I found my new hobby which is kayaking and I felt great afterwards! The guides were awesome and a great time seeing Chiang Mai during Songkran holidays! Highly recommended!

Tim was extremely knowledgeable, well mannered, kind & patient. I really enjoyed my personal tour with Tim and would thoroughly recommend his services.
