    Good tour overall. Our guide was really knowledgeable and shared a lot of background and a lot of details. The downside was that his English wasn't great. We were able to communicate and we learned a lot, but it took a lot of effort to understand all of the details.

    We had a private tour, with just me, my wife, the guide and a driver. That was really nice.

    Our guide, Maggie, was interesting and spoke good English. A lovely way to spend an afternoon in Chiangmai Mai!

    Waste of money. Our guide was disinterested and not informative. She was more interested in trying to take us to factories where we would buy things instead of bringing us to the temples and educating us about the city.

    Very informative guide. You get to see a few improvement temples (one of which is on top of a mountain) and hear about the rich history of Chiang Mai.

    average at best.... weak guide with low energy and no interest in his job

    This was such an excellent tour and our guide, Noi, was amazing! She taught us all about Thai culture and traditions and was very passionate about ensuring we learned the history. She took us to 3 sites and we loved visiting and hearing about the history of each location. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chiang Mai! You will get an in-depth background on the sites you are seeing and learn so much more then if you went by yourself. Noi was so sweet and even showed us how to write our names in Thai! We will always remember this tour and everything we learned from Noi. Thank you!
