Good tour overall. Our guide was really knowledgeable and shared a lot of background and a lot of details. The downside was that his English wasn't great. We were able to communicate and we learned a lot, but it took a lot of effort to understand all of the details. We had a private tour, with just me, my wife, the guide and a driver. That was really nice.

Waste of money. Our guide was disinterested and not informative. She was more interested in trying to take us to factories where we would buy things instead of bringing us to the temples and educating us about the city.

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
