  • This was a real good tour. The guide was very informative. The sites were good choices and memorable. The company was flexible to add one more person to our group the morning of the tour and they let me start a bit later to accommodate a late arriving person.good value, flexible, friendly.

  • Very good tour, learned lots about this fascinating city and saw its monuments with good guide

  • This was a truly amazing experience. Our guide Amy took us to several temples and explained in great detail the Buddist culture, beliefs and why the building were built. She was very knowledgeable about everything we saw and did. Her personality was fantastic and we really enjoyed our time with her. At the end of our last temple visit Amy bought us some street food to try which was amazing. The driver was also a lovely lady and we had great conversation in the car even teaching Amy some Aussie slang lol. All in all this is a highly recommended tour and worth every cent. I highly recommend Amy as a tour guide, such a lovely lady :

  • Nice private tour around the temples ...

  • Instructor was excellent, whole trip is great

  • It was ok but a lot of walking to see many similar things a bit overly long
