This is a really nice tour! The guide was very nice and informative. I learned a lot about Buddhism and Chiang Mai from him. The chant itself is hypnotizing, I recommend the experience. The food is really good too.

The chanting is a nice little bit of insight into Thai culture and the night market is crazy and it's very useful to have a guide giving you insider tips. But the best thing here is the dinner, a great selection of Thai dishes in a very nice setting. It's an evening well spent.

This was a great way to spend our evening. We visited a couple of the more prominent temples in the town and enjoyed hearing the monks chanting. At one, we were able to walk down to the river and enjoy the view. The market was interesting, and our guide introduced us to a few local items along the way. Although dinner was described to be out in a garden, we actually ate indoors at a lovely resort. It was cool and there were no mosquitos! The first dish that came out was very flavorful, but so extremely hot for us. We indicated this to the waiter, and the rest of the meal was much less spicy. It would have been nice to have had the spice discussion before the food was served I know we aren't the only ones who can't take Thai heat : Aside from the spice, the food was delicious. We visited the market before dinner we had expected it to be for dessert, according to our trip description, but the dessert at the restaurant was wonderful. A lovely evening.

Great evening! The evening prayers at the Wat were lovely, enjoyed the guide's tour of the Night and Flower Markets though note, this is not the Night Market with stalls selling t-shirts and knick-knacks, and the boutique hotel dinner was in a lovely setting with delicious food.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Loved this tour my first night in Chiang Mai. It was great to see the actual local temples instead of busy touristy spots. Also the night market was great and the guide really showed me around and explained what everything was. Definitely recommend! And dinner was great as well!!!

This was great to see. Our guide was full of information about something we really know nothing about. I felt more educated when we were done. The dinner though was remarkable! The restaurant was a hidden oasis and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was informative - extremely friendly and helpful, answering questions about any topic we had. He was well spoken in English and had perfect manners. The temple tour and monks chanting was made more interesting by Dom's personal experiences that he related to us. Having a driver Ton and a guide Dom works very well as we were left off at a location whilst the driver found parking, etc. and the moment we were ready to move onward, the car was waiting. The secret garden dinner was fabulous. A truly remarkable setting and exquisite food. Night Market was not the touristy version, it was the actual markets that the locals attend, much more interesting than we had anticipated. Wonderful experience.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Everything about this tour was worth every dollar. The guide was friendly and super informative. We arrived at the temple however there was some special day on so he offered us the chance to go to another temple so we were able to see the monks chanting. This experience in itself was absolutely amazing. The dinner at the boutique hotel was delicious!! You would never go to this place if you weren't on this tour. You can not even tell from the road that there is a restaurant there. And the food they served was just superb. Northern Thai cuisine, fine dining style. We then finished at the night markets where the guide took us through and we tried all the different Thai fruits. We were a group of 9 and every single person enjoyed this tour. Highly recommended!!
