We had an absolutely amazing experience, sweet driver and guide. We saw the perfect amount of temples, and we got some exciting history about both the temples, but also the history of Northern Thailand. We also got to see some different food markets. All in all, it was a very actual experience that my boyfriend and I can definitely recommend to others.

A wonderful day with May, who told us so much worth knowing about Chiang Mai and the temples. The driver Pim did a good job too. We would definitely recommend the tour, it was one of the highlights of the trip.

We had a very interesting afternoon with Nancy. Highly recommended.
