Beautiful but disappointing

So let me start by saying Doi Suthep is breathtakingly beautiful, unfortunately that’s the only good thing I can say about this tour. In the description it says you will hike with a ranger and there are waterfalls to cool off in....we did not have a park ranger with us only a guide who pretty much turned us loose on a trail, also no waterfalls along the hike those are later in the tour. So that was disappointing. Also once we got to the top of the hike we did not see a beautiful Thai temple we were met with a billboard, a road, and a pile of trash. When we finally made it to Doi Suthep it was stunning. Our guide met back up with us and took us to the temple entrance and then disappeared. Unfortunately we did not get any information on the temple or history. After spending an hour at the temple we were loaded back into the van and taken to the waterfall. Our guide told us to go up the stairs to the small waterfall which was beautiful he also told us if we wanted to see the big waterfall to go up the stairs follow the path for about the 15 minutes. Naturally we wanted to see it which takes me to the worst part of this tour where myself my husband and the other couple followed a trail for 45 minutes on our on only to seriously start worrying we were lost. Mind you we were all in our swim suits so hiking was not the most pleasant. We finally found another guide who told us to keep following the trail and we’d come to the waterfall. We continued walking and ended back up at the parking lot where we started the was no second waterfall! Needless to say all our us were exhausted and irritated and wanted to go back to the hotel. Our guide noticed we were all frustrated and tried bribing us so we wouldn’t leave a bad review. I will say as someone who hikes often the hike was definitely more on the difficult side I would not say it’s moderate. Also in the description it says you would have a guide and a ranger and at no point would you be left on your on in the jungle nine of that was true for our tour. I would not recommend this particular tour until they get the description right and hire the appropriate staff. However I highly recommend seeing Doi Suthep just not with this tour.
The most perfect and orderly facilitation of a food course

Pick up arrived on time. Only 1 other couple on the tour so in total 4 of us. Had a great day. Our guide was lovely. The hike was harder than expected, so wear trainers or walking shoes. I had walking sandals on which were ok, but not great.

We had a great time on this day trip, we went to the temple on the busiest day of the year when local residents made their annual trek up the mountain by foot to worship. Interesting to see the temple in action with lots of native dress. The hike through the park was gorgeous, we didn't see another person there. We sure needed the guide to help us navigate the sometimes steep and slippery trail. A few log crossings, two waterfalls, a bamboo forest, butterflies, and the sound of cicadas. This was a highlight of our week in Chiang Mai, though was glad it didn't rain that day to make it more slippery. Lisa, San Francisco, CA
