Prepare yourself for an entire day!! We had the most amazing time with our guide Maggie and driver Arun. Since we were the only family on the tour, besides having the van all to ourselves, Maggie catered to us, pointing out sights along the way and answering all of our crazy questions and then some. We were able to say how long we wanted to stay at each place and she took pictures of us in the best spots. She even sent them to us right before we were dropped off. It was very hot and we were provided cold water and cold wipes after every stop. The air conditioned van was perfect. I highly recommend this tour (even though it was very long!!)

A long day trip from China Mai but well worth it. Visited both the white and blue temple. The beautiful landscape and the three-country point in the Golden Triangle was very beautiful. We had enough stops along the way to stretch our legs. Our guide Anan and the driver Oum were professional. We had a clean and practically new minivan. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we were unable to cross the Mekong to Laos. We would have liked to have done that.

Our tour guide Mona and driver were absolutely great! Both very sweet and accommodating. Allowed us to pick and choose the places we did and did not want to see since it was a private tour. Took photos and videos for us when needed. Just absolutely amazing! We loved them.

Our guide, Sid, was awesome. We had a private tour of the hot springs, white temple, golden triangle, opium museum and the blue temple. Sid was very knowledgeable, spoke great English and knew all the places to see. He also takes great pictures and videos.

This was a great experience. We got to customize our tour to what we wanted to see instead of the standard tour. Our Guide Mr. Anan and driver Mr. Yom were amazing. We would recommend this tour and this company to everyone.
