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.

Our tour guide understands our interest and our needs. Mr Anan explained to us the history and arts revolving the architecture of the different temples. We were able to appreciate the modern art in designing and building of the different temples. The driver works very well with him. They did not press us on time and allowed us to immersed in the beauty of the golden triangles, and even a thorough reading through the exhibits in the opium museum. As a result, we had to make our way back to Chiang Mai Hotel late. The driver was very experienced and careful in driving in the difficult areas. Overall, we were very satisfied snd happy and we booked another tour with the company pontourchiangmai.

Highly recommended

If you are thinking of a tour to Chiang Rai from Chiang Mai we would recommend this 2 days tour. Sid and Pon guided us around in a most pleasant and relaxing way. We did a private tour and therefore could build our own tour. Timings were very good, they avoid the crowds as much as they can. They took care of us very well: safe driving, good information and communication and the food they ordered was more than sufficient and very delicious. Both were very helpful of making pictures, and to our surprise Pon made a video compelation of our tour as a good remembrance we will take home. In these 2 days we have seen so many things in the Northern part of Thailand which we never could do on our own. Loved it.
