We really enjoy the day. the guide was nice and very helpful. The only thing is that it is a very very long day and tiring. I would recommend to do this excursion in 2 days and to overnight in the north. All the visit were too short to explore, admire and appreciate the sites. We did not have time to visit the gallery of the artist at the the White temple.

Excellent trip but a long day, the visit to the white temple was our main reason to take this tour absolutely fabulous building and we'll worth the visit, would definitely recommend the visit. Good guide and driver, nice lunch on the way, water provided. Golden triangle also very informative and worth the visit could have done with a little more time at the museum there but in the main very enjoyable.

It was a very long day but worth it. I would do it again with the same guide who was extremely patient, helpful and happy to share her knowledge with the group. The day was well planned with regular breaks and lovely lunch and tea/coffee break.
