Depends. Does that include petrol/gas? Does it include admission fees? Is it a proper car or open air vehicle? Is he simply driving or will he act as a guide as well?

If it includes petrol and is a proper car, then the price is not too expensive. If you are in an open air vehicle or have to pay petrol in addition, it sounds a little high.

Car taxi from the airport is 120B, SUV taxi is 150B.

Matt_Fozz27, We have just returned from Chiang Mai and we used Ben from Benstaxisandtours, you will find his details under tour guides in FAQs,

He charges 2000Baht per day plus petrol (400-500 baht), this rate is for 1-2 persons, he has a lovely clean air conditioned vehicle, he is a very obliging young man and nothing is too much trouble, you TELL him what YOU want to do (not like some other companies) and he gladly arranges everything.

He is NOT a tour guide but is your driver with a vast knowledge of Chiang Mai and surrounding areas, he explains things as you drive around and waits at his vehicle while you do YOUR OWN thing at the various sites, book him and you will not be disappointed.

We are returning in 2014 and will be definetly booking Ben.

Enjoy Chiang Mai
