    Very friendly tour guide, Khun Oom. Good temples tour. Would have been better if they included a little bit if city tour, not only temples.

    The tour picked us up at our hotel, as planned, in a nice van and we went with about 6 travelers to the temples. The guide did a great job of explaining the history of each temple, while also giving us time to wander and take photos on our own and enjoy each space. I really enjoyed our tour guide and highly recommend this tour! It was great to have someone to share the history about each location, so taking the tour added a lot of value to our experience of touring the temples.

    This half day tour is a fabulous introduction to the major Wats and sights of Chaing Mai. We were in a small group and on a timetable - but this let us know where we'd like to go and spend more time when we go back one day (we must!). Our guide kept us on schedule yet gave us all the freedom to explore when on site, making sure we were well cared for. The magnificent Doi Suthep is the crowning experience of the day - we had been told "If you haven't been there, you haven't been to Chaing Mai" - and it is a very busy spot, so we really appreciated having a driver to drop us off and a guide to help us get through the crowds to the right places! Because this is only a half day, I think it makes a great option for families and for people who want some alone time to explore in the afternoons and evenings.

    Owen, our guide was awesome. We got lucky an were the only group in the trip. We saw three temples and learned a lot about Thai and Chiang Mai history! Would recommend this trip. Took about 3 hours total.

    This is a very worthwhile tour of some of the most beautiful temples in Chiang Mai. The only downside was that our guide, although knowledgeable, was quite young, and therefore not terribly professional, and had an accent that made her hard to understand. We felt that we missed a lot because of not being able to understand what she was saying. What we thought was National T-shirt Day, turned out to be National Teachers Day! Still a good tour!

    very HOT in October...interesting to see the temples with a guide. very good guide I hired him for the next day private tour of botanical gardens and Mong mt. village...

    We thought this would be a short entry to the city and didn’t expect too much...but it was fantastic! Our guide (Games) was amazing and we had a great time!

    The tour was great. Our tour guide Frankie explained all the temples and their history; is worth it.

  • 09-Sep-2019

    Our guide was absolutely wonderful. Fantastic English as well as knowing so much information about what we were seeing. He informed us he had trained as a novice monk when he was young, so had so much insight and extra detail to provide. Wish it had been a full day tour!

    The tour guide was fantastic. She spoke English very well and had a real passion to share her knowledge. The trip was a real insight into Thai culture and the significance of the temples. The half day was a good amount of time. Overall really enjoyable and I’d highly recommend.
