Our tour guide, Noy, was absolutely amazing. She was very knowledgeable in Buddhism and the different temples. She was friendly and went out of her way to help us buy local food at vendors. The tour gave us a better understanding of the culture in Chiang Mai.

This tour with great. The guide was really knowledgable and customized the tour when we asked to visit a temple not on his itinerary. The scenery is beautiful and I feel we would have missed a lot without a guide.

Chiangmai is a wonderful place, far nicer, cleaner and friendlier than Bangkok. The Royal Princess Dusitani Hotel, was excellent for its 4-star rating and obvious age. Our tours, booked through Viator were interesting and well guided.
