Mr Kam was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. On the tour was myself, my husband and a young man traveler. Nice small group meant it was easy to ask questions. The trek was not an easy trail at times. We’re used to these types of hikes in our Rocky Mountains, so this was not a problem for us but could be problematic if mobility is an issue. We stopped at the lower temple where a monk ordination was taking place. We were then driven up to the top of Doi Suthep where there was a huge complex temple and LOTS of people- praying, giving offerings- obviously a very religious place for Buddhists. Tourism in Thailand is currently low due to COVID2019 and no Chinese tourists being allowed out of China, so this was the first time we saw so many Asians in one place. Lunch padthai was okay. We stopped at a waterfall and dipped our toes in. Water level is really low due to drought conditions. We were grateful to be driven back to our hotel even tho the description said we wouldn’t be.
Wow! What an experience! This was the perfect day for our family. We were able to interact with the elephants in the morning and see one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand in the afternoon with an absolutely amazing lunch in between! We had a very limited amount of time in Chiang Mai unfortunately so this tour was perfect-- allowing us to do check off two of the activities we wanted to do most in one day. Our guide and driver (who was also the owner of the tour company) were extremely accommodating! Our guide was the perfect balance of informative and allowed us to chat among ourselves and relax in between destinations. I could not recommend this tour high enough! Thank you all for such a memorable experience!
Me and my girlfriend had an amazing day. We learnt so much about Buddhism and the temples. Our tour guide Jackie used to be a monk for seven years so is full of knowledge and wisdom. Jackie took us for some beautiful food and even recommended a dish for us which is now my girlfriends favourite Thai dish. Jackie’s English is perfect and he is very funny and great to be around. His driver Mr Wan was also great and they both really looked after us. Would fully recommend this tour and if we ever come back to Chiang Mai we would definitely tour with Jackie.
Great time! Mr. Kam is a great guide very funny and knowledgeable. The hike was quite easy, anyone healthy will have no problems at all even if not very athletic. But it was a nice descent from the temple through the jungle. Food was simple but very good Pad Thai and fresh fruits. The waterfall is nice to bathe in and comes at almost the end of the hike so it is refreshing. Total time was less than expected around 4 hours. It was definitely worth it for Mr. Kam's stories and his clear love for the forest.
Have to say was a brilliantly organised trip. Our tour guide Anan was just fantastic and even added an extra stop to the ‘Sticky Waterfalls’ well worth a stop. The elephant experience was superb and our leader Neo couldn’t have been more helpful. This was just as I hoped and no tacky displays or misuse of the elephants in any way. Highlight was bathing them in the river - was just a joy. Highly recommend this trip.
