Lacking in substance, unfortunately....
Jan 2020
This trip had all the potential in the world with regard to several of our stops: the White Temple, the Karen Long Neck Tribe Village, and the Golden Triangle - all astonishingly fascinating places. However, our guide's style of presenting information consisted of lecturing us ten minutes before arrival, on the very noisy van (apparently no shock absorbers! - so very difficult to hear), and then turning us loose at each location after a brief on-site orientation focused on when to return to our group. For instance, at the Long-Neck Village, we had to attach ourselves to other tour groups to listen in on their very informative lectures, which involved on-site interviews with tribe members, photographs, and detailed explanations of their history and lifestyle - I would have thought that for the price we paid, we would have received that kind of education from our guide. Oddly, our guide seemed to be focused on providing us with "shopping, shopping" opportunities - which were not mentioned in the advertisement. We made several side stops (a town on the Myanmar/Thailand border was one) that seemed to be thrown in solely for shopping - which was not on our priority list. Additionally, we were offered only one bottle of water, after 10 hours of touring; it's a good thing we brought several bottles of our own. On all our other experiences while in Chiang Mai, the tour operators had unlimited water for their patrons. Finally, the driver was actually unfriendly - so different than all of our other experiences with the wonderful, warm Thai people. So I would rate this tour experience as the most disappointing of all our excursions while in Chiang Mai.

Golden Triangle
Jan 2020 • Couples
We saw some good things on the trip ... obviously the Golden Triangle; but also, the white temple, the blue temple, the hot springs and the Long Neck Village. Not sure how viable it is as a day trip though .... you’re spending most of the time in the bus ... instead of a 12hr trip, it was 15hrs and approx 10hrs of those, are spent sitting on a bus! In our case this was far from ideal, as our driver drove far too fast ... literally screeching round corners!!

Didn’t seem like value for money
Jan 2020 • Couples
Lovely guide but drive was so far and spent little time at each stop. Could have skipped the northern border and spent more time at the white temple.

Lunch was awful and for 3k baht each I would have expected snacks and drinks on the way. Had to pay extra taxes to cross into Laos despite being stated as included in the booking. Was o my 30baht though.

The white temple was amazing and could have spend half a day there but only got 50min. The Laos border was not worth visiting, just a bunch of tourist market stalls selling fakes, rum and cigarettes. Actually all the attractions had vendors selling to tourists, from the hot springs, norther border, golden triangle and long neck village. Apart from the white temple, everywhere felt very geared to bus loads of tours.

The drive back to Chiang mai was long and painful... we both got sick from the cold air conditioning in the van.. we were dropped off at our hotel in Tapae Gate at 10pm! We were picked up at 7am and therefore much longer than the advertised 12 hrs.

I would recommend if the price was 2k - 2.5k or if there was a better lunch and snacks/drinks on the way. No dinner was included... which made the journey home all the more uncomfortable.

Dear customer thanks for feedback . We value your response , kindly provide your booking number for our reference . Please be noted that this a long trip and it includes lot of travelling because we have to cover a lot of places. May i please suggest that you could have told the driver to turn off the air conditioner and if the driver refuse then we would definitely take action against it . Any way thanks for opting our service. Hope overall it was a great experience

Good Experience
Sep 2019 • Friends
Its a good trip and wort to go.. I am happy with our tour guide.. His name is Banana and he prefer to call banana since his name in Thai is very difficult to spell and if we say it with wrong intonation it will be a bad meaning.. Hahahah.
He is very interactive.. his knowledge is very good.. and he explain about the places that we will visit, talk about the tradition.. i must say, excelent.. Our driver is good not too fast and not to slow either.. both of them are very friendly.. I am very happy with my decision to join this tour..

Would not recommend
Aug 2019
The issue I have with this "Chiang Rai" tour is how little time is spent in Chiang Rai. Once you see the White Temple, it's off further north to the Golden Triangle with an unnecessary stop near the border with Myanmar at a very tourist-trap market along the way- in fact, most of the shopping trips are just mass produced tat from China, nothing worth purchasing at all. You spend a lot of time in the car but once you've seen the White Temple and Golden Triangle, not much else is of interest. I wish I had booked a different tour with more time actually spent in Chiang Rai rather than spending roughly 9 of 14 hours in a minibus.

Dear Sir/Madam, Thanks for your kind feedback, yes this tours is long that's why full day tour, the place is far which defiantly take long time, but those few hours at attractions is defiantly a worth watching. We have got a very mix review so far for this place and this is join tours so we highly appreciate your feedback but it is still worth visiting this place, we highly recommend everyone to read itinerary carefully, check review and we have few good response few average response and book, thanks a lot for your kindness.

Not worth the money
If you want to spend the day in a tour bus and shopping, then this is the tour for you. Too little time was spent outdoors immersed in the culture. The White temple is magnificant and shouldn't be missed, but the rest is not worth it.

Historically interesting
May 2019
It's a very long tour (14 hours), but worth it if you are a history buff. Certainly interesting to see the Long Neck Tribe and the Golden Triangle. Not great for photo ops, but worthwhile in terms of historical significance. Plus it gives you an opportunity to visit Laos.

A lot for one trip
May 2019
Our tour guide was an hour late but later we found that it was due to circumstances that he had no control over. The tour was fun & a little rushed but there was so much to see. We made various stops that allowed for shopping & sightseeing. Every stop included something different. Our tour guide took care of us & made sure that we were ready for each stop including preparation of tickets & history. We enjoyed everything about this tour except for the drive back which was a very dark, windy road. It was a little scary.

Very Long day, Uncomfortable Transportation, Mediocre Guide
May 2019 • Couples
We booked this tour to see several things we wanted to see in Northern Thailand. We knew the tour would be long because of the distances we needed to travel. Meeting the Karen, seeing Wat Rong Khun and visiting the Golden Triangle were all accomplished and so I was satisfied with the content of the tour.

When I think of a small group tour, I think of a comfortable small van with a tour guide who tries to foster an esprit de corps among the tourists. A good tour guide makes even a long tour like this one a lot of fun and not so grueling. However, the van was not comfortable enough for such a long trip - the seats were hard and the air conditioning was inadequate - which made the drive a real ordeal. As for the guide, he was friendly and knowledgeable but not entertaining - and on a long trip like this, an entertaining guide is a must. A good guide would have spent a lot of the drive talking about Thai culture and people and getting the passengers talking to each other. Sadly, this did not happen.
