This was such an excellent tour and our guide, Noi, was amazing! She taught us all about Thai culture and traditions and was very passionate about ensuring we learned the history. She took us to 3 sites and we loved visiting and hearing about the history of each location. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chiang Mai! You will get an in-depth background on the sites you are seeing and learn so much more then if you went by yourself. Noi was so sweet and even showed us how to write our names in Thai! We will always remember this tour and everything we learned from Noi. Thank you!

Our private tour with Roong from Tour East was fabulous. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the temples and the area's history which we loved. We had an air-conditioned van and enjoyed being showed around the old city. We fell in love with Chiang Mai.
Roong even suggested a great restaurant to us as a locals favourite 'The River Market' and it was possibly some of the best food we've ever eaten.
Booking through Viator was really easy and we could pay in advance so we didn't dig into our spending money

The guide Bua and driver arrived punctually. The guide's English was very good. The car we travelled in was clean and either reasonably new or very well maintained. The guide ran the tour at the pace that suited us. With only wife and I on the tour, we struck up a rapport and it became like being shown round by a friend or family member. We found the stops very interesting and I'm sure the tour went on longer than was originally scheduled. Very enjoyable and enlightening.
