Our whole trip was amazing, our guide Tas was great at explaining and answering all of our questions, he took us with to every site and we adjusted also to our needs. Both him and the driver were very nice during the car rides which were sometimes long, but it was OK the longest ride was the ride back yo Chiang Mai. We had great food we asked him to give us Thai food and not the European type food that he offered in the beginning. We wanted a more local experience a d that is what we got, even though we visited really popular and touristic places. The experience overall was great.

Anan and Pon were fabulous. Truely enjoyed the private tour organised by them during the 2 days to Chiang Rai. They didn't rush us and letting us enjoyed every moment, seeing everything. They were patient, very helpful. Definitely recommend them to every one from sole traveller to families with young kid/elderly. The transport provided were top luxury and very comfortable which is essential for long hours.. Must book tour to enjoy chiang rai in relaxing manner.. Jacelyn from Singapore

It was a great trip. We had an excellent and thoughtful driver with “Man” and with “Jackie” an uncomplicated, funny, competent and very communicative tour guide. He was able to convey not only the individual highlights but also a lot about the country and its people. It was good that we did the 2 day tour, so we just had a relaxed time and never felt rushed.

very good experience, nice and friendly travel guide Sid and the driver{hoot /yut}, relax and comfortable trip with no rushing. they plan well the timing. we really enjoy our trip and very happy with our booking with Pon chiangmai private tour.
