Looking for a guide in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai

Hi!

We're soon travelling to Northern Thailand and we're looking for a reliable English speaking guide to do a 2 day trip tour between Chang Mai and Chiang Rai. It's urgent!

Thanks in advance!

If you scroll down the list that bbtony provided you will also find guides from Chiang Rai that will organize private trips. Some people take the Green VIP bus from Chang Mai to Chiang Rai and then use a local guide in Chiang Rai. If you want to drive to Chiang Rai, it probably makes more sense to use a guide from Chiang Mai.

Safe Travels,

Broder

We were in Chiang Mai recently (mid-May 2012) and used Miss Tom as a guide. She was excellent. We were impressed that she listened to our request to ride elephants at a place that didn't treat them like circus animals and where we could get in the river with them and wash them afterwards. She found the perfect place for us and it was only a half day, so we were able to do some other activities. Her English is very good and we enjoyed talking to her about her family, country and culture. She is not an official guide, but a taxi driver, so when she met us at the airport she was not able to come inside to greet us. This caused some confusion, but designate a meeting point ahead of time and you will be fine. You can call her at 081-671-5688 and her e-mail is silverstar_tom@hotmail.com.
