Elephant and Sticky waterfall tour
Mar 2020 • Family
Mona was an excellent guide for us on our day with Elephants and at the Sticky waterfall. She gave us lots of information but also let us have space to spend time as a family. The elephant sanctuary was excellent and a great experience playing with them in the river. The lunch was delicious with lots of choices served to us. Thank you Mona for a memorable day!

Hubby and I did this trip with Mona yesterday.
What a delight. She and her driver met us at our hotel, took us to a very sacred temple that contains some remains of the Buddha. Toured all around the outside, interesting indoors. Had time to look through a jade factory in the morning as well. Lunch was incredible. Many delicious Thai specialties serve outdoors on a covered patio with a lazy river running next door. Sticky water fall was crowded with families and children on a Sunday afternoon, so it made people watching fun as folks tried navigating the waters. She knows many historical aspects of the city and Thailand both. We would highly recommend this tour. They always had cold water and sanitizer in the lovely van we rode around in. You can always request her specifically when booking.

Best of Chiang Mai
This private tour was really nice. Mona, our guide, did a great job telling us about Thai culture and showing us some of the sites. Because we had her to ourselves, we were able to go at our own pace and ask a zillion questions. We saw some bigger tour groups at the temple and we knew if we had been in one like that it wouldn't have been as interesting for us. Also, the lunch at the restaurant was pre-selected and excellent. Way too much food! The driver was very courteous and attentive.

Jakkie and Pan were great!
Feb 2020 • Family
We had a great private tour with Jakkie and Pan. They picked us up from our hotel on time and provided a clean and comfortable ride for the day. We first started by visiting the Doi Suthep Temple. Jakkie was a monk for seven years and we learned so much from him. He even made it fun for our nine and eleven year old boys.
Then we headed to the Sticky Waterfalls. They are like nothing we have ever seen before and will never forget climbing down and up them. Jakkie was our own person photographer for the day, so we have a ton of pictures to remember too! The day was complete with a wonderful Thai meal in the middle of the day and the sweetest coconut as a refreshment on the way back from the waterfalls.

Wonderful Tour...
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had a truly memorable day today... all thanks to our wonderful guide Anan and driver Wan. From the moment we were picked up (promptly at 8am) the care and attention given has been second to none. We started our day at Wat Doi Suthep temple, a truly enlightening experience, from the setting, to the temple itself, to the level of insight provided. Anan is incredibly knowledgable and what I especially loved were the finer details he provided on Buddhism and beliefs. We then visited a place where Jade is beautifally crafted into jewellery and ornaments. I bought a Jade elephant as a keepsake. We moved from there to a bountiful and delicious lunch in a beautiful spot by the river. We finished the day at the Sticky Waterfall which was a fun and exhilarating experience! Thank you Anan and Wan for a fab day!!

Great day
We had a great time with Jakkie and Mr Pan (driver). Jakkie was very enthusiastic about the day and had a great sense of humor. They were right on time picking us up at our hotel at 8am. From there we went to wat doi Suthep where Jakkie did a great job explaining the history of the temple and Buddhism. Jakkie was a monk for 7 years and it was very interesting hearing about the history of the temple and Buddhism. From there we visited a jade factory. After that it was about an hour drive to a restaurant on the side of a river that was very delicious. The food was hot and ready for us when we arrived. Along the way jakkie and Mr. Pan has many jokes and stories to tell. After lunch we went to the sticky waterfalls which was great. Jakkie climbed down the falls with us showing us how to do SK safely and taking many pictures along the way. Overall was a great day. Highly recommend Jakkie and Mr. Pan

Best tour of my life!
I don’t think I’ve ever had more of an experience than what today has been. Our tour guides were Anan and driver was oum. They promptly picked up my friends and I at 8 am. In fact they were early by 15 minutes to make sure we were ready. So kind, so knowledgeable, so attentive. We started at the Wat Doi Suthep temple, we made Anan walk the stairs to the top with us. He showed us all around and explained about Thai culture and beliefs. Answered all of our questions. We visited the jade factory and learned about how they produce, bought some gifts for myself and family. Then we drove about an hour and a half to lunch on the river. Soooo good! Everything was ready and prepared when we got there so we got the best spread of Thai foods (pad Thai, spring rolls, chicken curry, TFC(Thailand fried chicken) and they accommodated my vegetarian friend very well!)
Final stop was the sticky water falls. I can not describe how amazing that was.
I would recommend anyone and everyone to do this tour. I would do this again in a heart beat. The tour guides were so nice and we were laughing the whole time. They even surprised us with fresh coconut water at the end!!
Best part of our vacation so far.
