Me and my girlfriend had an amazing day. We learnt so much about Buddhism and the temples. Our tour guide Jackie used to be a monk for seven years so is full of knowledge and wisdom. Jackie took us for some beautiful food and even recommended a dish for us which is now my girlfriends favourite Thai dish. Jackie’s English is perfect and he is very funny and great to be around. His driver Mr Wan was also great and they both really looked after us. Would fully recommend this tour and if we ever come back to Chiang Mai we would definitely tour with Jackie.

My sister and I absolutely LOVED this tour! We had a great time visiting some of the most beautiful temples in Chiang Mai, as well as a few of the handcraft centers. Our guide, Mona, was amazing! She was very knowledgeable, let us walk around at our own pace, and even took pictures of us that she sent to us at the end of the day. We definitely recommend this tour! :)

Best Day Ever is how I'd describe it! Jack my guide was excellent knew so much about everything going on! In and out of the temples he also was hilarious and a fantastic teacher. He made it fun and interesting the entire time! Since I had a private tour I thought 8 hours of the same person would get boring but he was excellent at keeping me engaged and interested! Job done so well no complaints! Um the driver was very safe and friendly. He ensured my safety the whole day and if I said it once I have said at least 50 times driving in Thailand is hard! He navigated threw the masses with ease and made me feel comfortable the whole time! Also I want to say that Jack had excellent English even with it being a 2nd language! I never had trouble understanding the point and his vocabulary was amazing! The spot they brought me for lunch was also a jam! 12/ 10 would recommend and even do it again myself!
