The excursion was very good. The guide "Nain" was great and told us many things about Thailand. He took great photos and videos of us at every opportunity. He responded to our wishes and was also very friendly and personable. I would do a tour with him again anytime. As there were no other travelers we had a private tour at no extra charge.
