What a wonderful day. Pon Chiangmai Tour led our private tour for the two of us, newlyweds honeymooning in Thailand. Mr. Anan (guide) and Mr. Oum (driver) were absolutely fantastic. We started with a visit to the shrine of Krupa Sri Wichai, who helped build the road to Doi Suthep. We gave an offering and then visited Doi Suthep where we learned a lot about Buddhism from the very friendly and knowledgeable Mr. Anan. Mr. Oum gave us cold water and then we went to lunch for some tasty Khao Soi, satay, and Lana sausage. Finally the real highlight were the elephants of Ban Chang Paradise! This was a beautiful end to a wonderful day— playing in the mud and pond with the elephants, feeding them bananas, sugar cane, and corn were so much fun. It was just an incredible experience and one we hope to relive with our children someday. We had the place to ourselves, getting to play with Baby Mai and the mama, Mee Tang, was truly special. Worth every moment and every penny!

We had an amazing trip with our guide Maggi and driver Om (I hope I spell all correctly). We felt welcomed and cared from the start of the trip. All was set up comfortably. The temple and the cave were super impressive and sticky waterfall is super fun to climb up. Don’t be intimidated, going up the waterfall is easy and refreshing! The area around waterfall is green, protected from sun and nice to be. We had delicious lunch and fruits afterwards. Overall I think it makes a lot of sense to book this tour with the private guide, as it was very good to be photographed and taken care of while we were climbed up. Big thanks to the organizer company and guide and drive for the experience and the tour is absolutely to recommend!

Pon Chiangmai private tour to the Elephant Ethical was an amazing experience. Our day with Maggie and Pon was very fun and we had the chance to learn a lot from them and connect with the elephants. Elephant ethical few places in Thailand where the elephants are genuinely cared for, there is no riding or shows, you can prepare snacks, feed them, walk with them and take them to the Mud. We also learnt from Pon and Maggie about the history of the place as they’re extremely knowledgeable. This was overall an excellent combination of education and fun interaction with animals. If you have the chance go here it's great and worth every penny! Big plus, the food was also fantastic!

Mona was a fantastic tour guide! She was very knowledgeable about all the questions we asked, and had great English so we could understand her perfectly! She even taught us how to speak a few words in Thai. Highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to squeeze a lot into one day!

Great food trip across Bangkok. Not only do you try dishes that you would probably not order as a tourist, but you also learn a lot of background information about the food and the people from the guide. We recommend
