We had a really great trip and would definitely recommend. The driver was very helpful, he offered to take family photos of us and brought us some water while we visited the Buddha temple. We would've liked a bit more free time in the old town, 40 minutes wasn't quite long enough. Be prepared for the "hard sell" from the staff at the but shop, they follow you around with a shopping basket but it was nice to try the different flavours of nuts. Bargain trip!

Very well guided tour, process as announced, you had enough time everywhere, pickup worked great, after booking you get a WhatsApp from the organizer with information

Very professional and welcoming guide. Nice locations and very good guidance and local tips. Only drawback it’s that it’s a bit fast paced, otherwise excellent!

Very nice relaxed tour with history that was well told by the guide. Were 2, so it fit perfectly.

Very fun day. Enthusiastic guide who was very knowledgeable.
