My daughter and I really enjoyed this experience. Wonderful sights and friendly people. It is a privilege to get a glimpse of the culture of this special place. The sunrise was spectacular. The tour was well organized and guide Immi (please forgive my spelling of her name) was energetic and a happy presence in the tour. I will be reading up more.

Since we went really early, before the sunrise, there were just few people around, amazing view from the temple! All the temples were speechless, speacial thanks to the guide Tim which was a good driver with an amazing sense of humour and gave us many tips about Thai culture and temples history!

An early start, but a wonderful way to explore and learn about three beautiful temples. Tik was extremely knowledgeable and really helped provide context for everything we were seeing and give more background on the Buddhist religion.

Banana was a very friendly and informative guide, the pickup was on time and everything was very smoothly. He knows the temples very well and the tour was very informative. Thank you Banana!

This is a great sunrise tour. Much to see but plenty of time to see each temple. Very knowledgeable guide.
