Our guide for the morning food and culture tour had an excellent sense of humour, was informative, generous and engaging. You eat a lot of food on this tour but it's all great so skip breakfast and dive in - you won't regret it!

Did the mind and soul tour and definitely enjoyed the experience, but mostly this was due to the monk chat, which it turns out is offered FREE! (monkchat.net) I liked the breakfast but I didn't feel like the guide was very helpful in selecting items, so we didn't really know what we were getting. It was nice to visit the... More

A very unique experience. The visit at the market, the blessing at the temple, the boat ride and the lunch along the river made this tour so special. Our guide, Buddy, was fun, knowledgeable and very attentive. I am vegan and he provided some very good food for me too with no problem. He gave us also a lot of... More

Wow! This was the best short tour I did in Chiang Mai. Thong Bang (TB) came and picked me up bright and early. She informed me that I was the only one on her tour this morning. It was a rainy morning to be wandering around so she managed to find 2 umbrellas for us to use. After we got... More

We appreciated buying offerings and participating, like a Thai native, in the Buddhist culture. The monk chat was especially interesting and enlightening. However, during our travel times, the guide should have provided more information about the city and explain the customs better.

Our guide, Montree, met us at our hotel. We took local transportation (song thaew) to the Wararot market area. After walking around and seeing many interesting things, we went to the Wat Chai Mongkhon. Montree had purchased offerings for the monks; we went into the temple where people were sitting in front of the monks, honoring them and listening to... More
