“Enjoyable and wonderful Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai trip with Kate and Mr A”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We were very lucky to have a private tour with Kate and Mr A who were recommended by my friend (she went to Chiang Mai with her group of friends in early September)in late September. We were very satisfied with their good and considerate service.

Kate responded fast in email and gave us a good rate (negotiable) in our day trips. They directly fetch us at Chiang Mai International Airport and surprisingly provided us with local Thai food in the car(In fact, we were hungry at that time). We felt so warmed.

Kate provided us with useful information and good suggestions to modify our itinerary. She even taught us to speak simple Thai language in our free and easy journey in Chiang Mai city and suggested us to take suitable public transport so that we won't get cheated.

All in all, we feel thankful to them and will sure highly recommend them to my friends!! :)

“Amazing Thailand Tour”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We were very suprised to find out that we had a private tour, just the two of us along
with Kate and Mr A on our 7 day tour. It was great to get a detailed explanation of the
scenic spots and not have to worry about anything. Kate also consulted with us and ordered
great meals for lunch and dinners.

Both went out of their way to make our visit as pleasant as possible. This included keeping
us supplied with water and driving slower on the twisty mountain roads. I would highly
recommend them to anyone that wants to see the sights of northern Thailand.

Dealing with her via email was smooth and she provide us the best rate (I compared with many other tour companies before I found Katetravel). she responded fast to my email and was happy to provide me informations about the tours and also flexibility to modify trip itinerary according to our preference.

the trip was full of fun and all of us enjoyed having kate and tom as our guides. they speak good english and provide good informations about the history and significance of each places that we visited.

I have to say Kudos and thanks again to kate, for giving us a memorable trip, and also for helping me with a big surprise for the group!

“Amazing trip with an amazing, funny and generous guide.”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

Kate gave us the opportunity to see things more accurately with interesting explanations. The fact we have our personnal guide was also worth it as you're not hurried by time, not surrounded by many people who actually don't care and you also have the opportunity to do things one coulnd't do with a group.

“Kate and Mister A, simply the best!”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

My husband, sister and i arrived in Chiang Mai on Sunday afternoon. The clerk at our hotel very kindly called a girl named Atom in to help us with our sightseeing arrangements.
Atom arranged for Kate and Mister A to collect us from our hotel at 10.00 on Monday morning. It was a joy to meet Kate, she was so warm and friendly. Kate took us to the van and introduced us to her husband Mister A. We had the most amazing day, we were taken to the Mae Taeng Elephant Park where we feed bananas and sugarcane to the friendly elephants before going for a 50 minute ride through the natural parkland, we crossed the river twice, and the sure footed elephants carried us safely up hilly terrain. On our return we saw more elephants, dance, paint and play football.
After a delicious lunch we enjoyed a ride on an ox cart followed by a 4km ride down the river on a bamboo raft, propelled along by two very strong Thai gentlemen each with a long bamboo pole. That was so peaceful and beautiful.
Next we travelled higher into the mountains where my husband and I experienced the thrill of zip lining while my sister enjoyed a relaxing leg massage. Next on the agenda was a visit to the Long Neck and Hill Tribe peoples. Kate and Mister A walked through the village with us and helped us to purchase some of the beautiful hand crafts the ladies from the different tribes had made and were selling.
Mister A was also extremely helpful to my sister, he steadied her and helped her negotiate some of the uneven terrain for which she was so grateful.
Our last port of call was to the butterfly and orchid gardens, the orchids were brilliant, so much colour and variety, unfortunately there weren't a lot of butterflies though we did see an enormous green caterpillar.
It was a day packed with adventure and wonder and Kate was a charming guide and Mister A a very competent driver.
That evening I realised I had left my photo from the elephant park in the van. When Atom got hold of Kate she was already on her way to bring it in to me. Kate and Mister A arrived with freshly prepared mango (from her Mum's garden) and sticky rice for us to enjoy. To my great joy they had time to take us to Tiger Kingdom!
Wow, what a wonderful place this is. The tigers were so well cared for and their enclosures were spotlessly clean. We all went in with the baby tigers then my husband and I went in with the juveniles and the fully grown tigers. It was one of the best and most memorable experiences of my life.
We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant which Kate organised for us and then sadly it was time for Mister A to drive us to the airport. We were really sad to be saying goodbye to Kate and Mister A, in those few short hours over one and a half days we felt like we had become part of their family. Whenever we return to Chiang Mai we will definitely see them again and of course use their services as there is still so much to see and do in that region. I would definitely recommend their services to anybody needing a tour guide and driver whilst in Chiang Mai and I wish them well for the future.
