Had a pleasant time with our guide who was knowledgeable about the temples. I learnt a few things from the tour regarding Thai zodiac, Buddhist festivals in Chiang Mai and history of the three temples. He also knew where the cool photo spots are and I now got some awesome shots to show off online. Thank P’Nick 🙏

Fantastic trip. Beautiful temples, kind guide and driver. Our tour guide Boon was exceptionally knowledgeable and kind. He offered us food and also cares about stray animals etc and making merit. Worth the early start 10/10 recommend 😊😊

Top guide, very pleasant, very smiling and invested. We see that he wants to share the knowledge of his culture. It's really a great excursion for those who want to learn more about this city and its history. I recommend x1000.

Boon was a friendly and informative guide. This tour was a great way to visit these temples, and I would recommend it!

A good way to beat the crowds and see three fantastic temples. Would recommend!
