I learned so much about each temple history and the history of Thailand through my guide, Sid. Both Sid and Pon were so kind & accommodating! Sid let me partake in the praying and offering at each temple and explained all the etiquette and customs. At the end of the tour they even made a stop (at my personal request) at Waroros Market so I can pick up some durian chips to bring home. I recommend anyone who’s looking to see some of Chiang Mai’s temples to take this tour.

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.

My sister and I absolutely LOVED this tour! We had a great time visiting some of the most beautiful temples in Chiang Mai, as well as a few of the handcraft centers. Our guide, Mona, was amazing! She was very knowledgeable, let us walk around at our own pace, and even took pictures of us that she sent to us at the end of the day. We definitely recommend this tour! :)
