Great day around Chiang Mai hot spots
, Mar 2020
Maggie was a great guide with lots of knowledge. She speaks very good English and is very upbeat and friendly. She took us to Doi Suthep, the jade factory (although it wasn’t part of the schedule), and sticky waterfalls. We also stopped for lunch at a picturesque spot on the way to the falls. All in all, a very good day. The driver was also very good and safe driver. We felt very comfortable in our private van. I would highly recommend them

We had an amazing tour! Mona was a fantastic tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, fun, and even climbed up the sticky waterfall with us! We also added the jade factory and orchid/butterfly gardens to our tour, which were both very interesting. Lunch was also delicious :). Highly recommend!

My friends and I learned so much during our tour of the Dot Suthep and had a lot of fun climbing the Sticky Waterfalls. Our guide, Mona, was very friendly and knowledgable. She also remembered that I had mentioned one of our travelers was gluten-intolerant, and she made adjustments to the provided snacks, as well as our lunch menu. Throughout our tour, Mona provided us with an in-depth look into the history of Dot Suthep, explanations of the various symbols and Buddhist traditions, as well as nuances between the Buddha sculptures in Thailand vs neighboring countries/regions. She also gave us the option to visit the Jade Factory and Orchid/Butterfly Farm on our way to lunch. It was so beautiful - definitely recommend! Mona also helped us take group photos throughout the day, and created a video for us at the end of the trip.

This was such a great tour. Prompt pick up at our hotel, phenomenal tour guide (Maggie) and a great driver. We did everything on the itinerary and also had time to add in a zip lining excursion in the afternoon. I highly recommend this tour!
Awesome day

Anna was an awesome guide. This personal tour was much more than I thought it would be. We visited not only the temple and Sticky Falls, but also the jade and silk factories, the orchid and butterfly farm, and enjoyed our private lunch with tons of food. Anna offered other outings as well, much to my surprise. We did everything we wanted and thought this private tour was one of our best experiences in Thailand. Anna also gave a great history and taught some Thai words and phrases. Very friendly. She took a bunch of pics with her camera and shared them with us on the What's Up ap. She did this so she wouldn't be responsible for holding our cameras. We uploaded the ap at our hotel and she transferred the pics quickly. Absolutely a wonder day.
Great Tour!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, they were very accommodating. We even did a side tour that we didn’t plan on, but they were totally fine with. Highly recommend this tour! Everything was excellent!

Prompt pick up, wonderful and knowledgeable guide, and a safe driver! After the temple and waterfall, you will most likely have time to go somewhere else as mentioned in the description. I recommend this tour!
