Well organized tour and great introduction to Chiang Rai

This is a great tour for those who are looking to take a day trip to Chiang Rai to see the White Temple. There are 3 other stops for the tour, Hot Spring at Mae Khachan, Wat Chedi Luang in the Ancient City and finally, the Golden Triangle. We had M as our tour guide and Yeng as our driver for the day. It was a very well organized tour and a great introduction to the cultural history of Chiang Rai. Definitely recommend for those who happen to be in town.
Unforgettable experience.

I cannot say enough great things about our tour. Dewey the tour leader was phenomenal. He was so interesting, informative and passionate. The sites we visited were interesting as well as breathtakingly beautiful. We were so well looked after and we wanted for nothing throughout the long day. I cannot fault this tour from the minute we were collected at 7am on the dot, to when we were returned to our hotel. I’d give one hundred stars if I could. Thoroughly recommend.
Great tour!
