Well made game! Definitely try it. Tips: 1. Go in the mornings. Most places to visit will be open. 2. Have Google Maps open alongside, to be sure you are on the right streets.

Top ! The guide is very good, everything was very well explained in French: a visit to do to better understand Thai culture.

In fact, the tour could have gotten a very good rating if it weren't for the horrendous hour-long gem sales show!

Our tour guide Mina is very nice and we learned a lot about different kinds of buddha origin. Glad we took the tour.

Grace was so knowledgeable and wash to chat . Great tour .
