The guide Pong gave us very attractive options are not included in the package:
water trip with landing on a Laos island and visit the place of three
hills tribes (included long neck one). Those parts were for additional
payment but very valuable and were worth to pay. But the offer was
like "do you need to see so and so?". Maybe because of her English
limitation , but we weren't actually guided to the beautiful places. By our experience with other guides in Thailand, we expected some explanations and actual guiding through the tour. In this time we asked to explain us about everything and received very short answers. The guide lady spent 90% of time to talk to her husband (the driver) .
Very long day but we were the only one's so it became a very personal excusion. We were able to walk through the Karon Long Neck Village for an additional 500 bht each. The Karon Long Neck Village is not out of the way its actually near the other villiages, so if your group is in agreements pay to visit.
We really enjoyed this tour. It was a 4-hour drive from Chiang Mai but it's all worth it. The tour guide and the driver were really accommodating and friendly. :)
A little too long. We could have done without visiting the market at the end of the day.
Absolutely wonderful. Guide was great and arrived at hotel on time. Would recommend this trip and online booking service to anyone. Thanks for making this wonderful experience so simple and easy.
Excellent guides, terrific places, well worth doing for a new visitor to the area.
A great fun filled adventure. Good experience of dropping into Myanmar and also a Laotian island. The guide was very friendly and took some lovely pics.
The White Temple is gorgeous.
Fantastic tour, the guide and driver were first rate. Got to see all the fun sites (including a visit to Laos) with fantastic scenery along the way and did not feel hurried at any time during the tour. Highly recommended!
Very cool tour...opted to go into Myanmar (another passport stamp) and I know that stretched the day a bit more, but our guide Meow was more than happy to accomodate us.
Trip very well organized, just as advertised.
For those who have more time, I would consider sleeping in Chiang Rai as it is a long trip.
We were blessed that we were the only two on the tour, so we could tweak for what we preferred - ie we added the boat to Laos at Mekong River rather than the village tribes, as had done that before on a hike during previous visit. Excellent day ... very full but not "too long". The drive was full of great views and commentary when required, quiet time when needed. The whole itinerary was superb and rewarding.
