Sadly the guide had no interest in making this a great experience for us or teaching us about their history and day in the life of the tribe. He was bored, checking the box and rushed. The temple was amazing but just go on your own as they have guides on site if you are interested. It will save you tons of money and frustration.

Great morning, guide terrific and was so obliging re taking our photo. Visit to alternative tribe was so enjoyable and home grown coffee has to be experienced- highly recommend

Our tour and guide were excellent! We started with the Hilltribe Village, and rather than taking us to the one with tons of tourists, he took us further up the mountain to a village that felt largely untouched. Very few tourists, and such an interesting visit. The Temple was just perfect as well. The right amount of time at both, and a wonderful Chiang Mai tour. Thank you!

A stunning temple with great views over the plain and Siem Reap. The high hill village was interesting and a good cup of coffee locally grown was had in a small café.

For the cost, this trip was definitely not worth it. The trip to the Hilltribe was a bumpy ride for a 15 minute walk around and cup of coffee. We did not think that this should be classified as a tour. There was no interaction with locations to understand their daily living or the changes they have encountered. Not much information was shared other than moving from producing drugs to coffee. The language barrier between us and the tour was too much for tour of the Wat Doi Suthep Temple. The tour guide was providing way too much information, rather than providing key points to takeaway. It's highly unlikely that we would take a tour like this again.

Highly recommend.

This was a private tour which we enjoyed very much. The guide and drivers were all knowledgeable and professional.

We rode up in a van then switched to a pickup due to the condition of the roads to the Hilltribe village. Walking in the village itself was ok. But, the scenery was very nice and the Arabica coffee that we had at a little coffee shop was very tasty. We rode the pickup back down until we could pick up the van to take us to the temple.

When we reached the temple we opted to ride the tram up to the temple. I believe there were 306 steps. Recommend tram up and walk down if the queue is not long. The temple, itself, was very nice and, again, the scenery was beautiful.

Very interesting tour with informative guide. Especially found the Hilltribe Village interesting.
