Prepare yourself for an entire day!! We had the most amazing time with our guide Maggie and driver Arun. Since we were the only family on the tour, besides having the van all to ourselves, Maggie catered to us, pointing out sights along the way and answering all of our crazy questions and then some. We were able to say how long we wanted to stay at each place and she took pictures of us in the best spots. She even sent them to us right before we were dropped off. It was very hot and we were provided cold water and cold wipes after every stop. The air conditioned van was perfect. I highly recommend this tour (even though it was very long!!)

Private tour by mr Pon as driver and mr Anan as guide who enthusiastically told about Thailand and the sights we went to. Itinerary was flexible and we were allowed to have our own input. We felt free to stay anywhere as long as we wanted. Booked a hotel yourself (not through Getyourguide, Laluna not recommended). Mr Anan took many pictures of us and we were sent a video of our trip.

It was an amazing tour! Especially enjoyable if you are a couple. We enjoyed the trip a lot. Every need from us was met. The tour guide spoke much better English than most tours we have visited before. We learned a lot about the region and the temples. Sidenote: the food at the restaurant you will visit at the white temple was delicious.

Our guide, Sid, was awesome. We had a private tour of the hot springs, white temple, golden triangle, opium museum and the blue temple. Sid was very knowledgeable, spoke great English and knew all the places to see. He also takes great pictures and videos.

This was a great experience. We got to customize our tour to what we wanted to see instead of the standard tour. Our Guide Mr. Anan and driver Mr. Yom were amazing. We would recommend this tour and this company to everyone.
