We highly recommend this tour to families wanting to experience life as a rice farmer. Our children learnt a lot and now have a much greater appreciation of the hard work involved in producing a bowl of rice. We don't think they will waste food again knowing what is involved. The tour is very hands on - be prepared to get wet and muddy as you plant the rice and plough with the buffalo. The lunch was incredible and they catered for our daughter who is celiac cannot eat gluten products. Amy, our guide, was very knowledgeable about Thai culture and Northern Thailand in particular. The scenery adds to this great experience. strongly encourage you to take this tour.
