Just got back from an amazing time on the AMAZING Thailand tour. This is our third smartours trip and it exceeded our expectations. Our tour Guide KetSara was exceptional. friendly, informed and attentive to all of our needs. Coach transport was tops as was the driver Jon & his assistant Goy. Always helping us on or off the coach with a smile, providing bottled water and cold towels and candies to help us through the hot Thai days. The sites in Thailand are magnificent and Ketsara's knowledge and ability to convey the Thai experience was great.The Hotels were top notch and the entire trip was a great value for what we received. It was planned out with just the right number of days in each location. My wife & I haven't stopped talking about this trip and recommend it highly to all our friends and family.

The trip was fantastic, from beginning to end!!! Our tour guides where there to meet us at the airport and send us off. They met everyone of our needs. Kaksara and Nok were the best tour guides I've experienced in all our travels. The value for the money was great, which allowed us to traveling from the south to the north of Thailand allowed us to see the country side, experience the cities and the temples. The hotels were nice and clean, there weren't any worries there. I wish we could of stayed longer, there was so much to see!!

This was my 4th Smartour trip. " Amazing Thailand" was everything and more. You will not be disappointed with this tour as it gives you an insight into a culture that has been around for centuries. Our tour guide, Ketsara was excellent! Her expertise in her country was outstanding. She made the tour very enjoyable and memorable for all. I loved Thailand and look forward to someday returning.

Antonio

Everyone in our group was satisfied and willing to travel with me on the next Excursión I organice! Congratulations

Danette

This was my first "SMARTOUR" ever and it was truely AMAZING!!!! We did "Amazing Thailand" and it was the best trip ever!!!! Great group with a wonderful tour guide group, Ketsara, Wat, Max and Nok. Highly recommend this tour!!!!!!

First time using Smartours or any tour company. Not normally a fan of large group tours. Our tour guide Ketsara was amazing, can't say enough good things about her and she made all the difference on the trip. Got lucky and our group was only 10 people so made it a nice intimate experience. Have to admit if the group was as large as they normally are, not sure I would have had such a good time. Amazing Thailand was a fantastic trip though and anyone who goes is lucky to be led by Ketsara!

This was my third Smartour trip and it was mostly good though more of a mixed bag than my two previous trips. We loved Thailand! It's rich history, warm people and beautiful scenery and delicious food were amazing. Our guide Tan did a good job and displayed great knowledge though we would have benefitted from some local guides as on previous trips. The bus, which we had several long days in was not up to smart ours usual standards. The back tv display wasn't working and presentations on the front could not be seen in the rear. Tours didn't include the whisper system usually used so you could only hear information if you were next to Tan. Water and wet naps were readily available from our friendly bus assistant. I was surprised to see an Elephant camp included since last year Smartours informed us they were no longer using them because of the mistreatment. We passed on that day and booked our own trip to an ethical Elephant Sanctuary. All in all a mixed bag with the good outweighing the bad but has us reconsidering if we want to do any more Smartours or long drive motor coach trips.

Our tour of Thailand was fabulous. We saw so much and had such a wide variety of experiences. Our tour guide, Nok, was the best!

Diane

Our tours of Thailand and Cambodia were amazing, from the hustle & bustle of Bangkok, to the rice paddies on the way North and the many Temples & UNESCO sites we visited along the way. Angkor Wat in Cambodia was a true highlight! Tan, our tour guide in Thailand was very knowledgeable and provided many stories about each area we visited. Narun, out Cambodia guide was also outstanding & knew so much about his country & all the history dating back to the Khmer Rouge era. I wanted to add a photo, but wasn’t able to with the choices provided to add one.

Karen

Ketsara, our guide for our group of 14, was the best guide we have ever experienced in our many travels. There were trips to the hospital to oversee two travelers, all with the greatest care shown. She maintained her humor, shared her expertise regarding Thailand, and made each day special. As group leader, I was pleased that such an amazing woman was assigned to our group of friends. Please commend her. Karen Snow, organizer for our trip to Amazing Thailand, starting Nov. 7.

I would rate smarTours 4.5 stars. In terms of hotel quality, tour guides chosen, itinerary design, and transportation provided, smarTours has done a magnificent job. The only improvement is to cut down some optional tours and possibly to include them in the basic tours like done before. Too many optional tours- for example in my recent Thailand and Phuket tour.

Aurora F

Our Tour Director, Sergio Lucato, made our trip to Italy this summer of 2018 a very wonderful memorable experience. Sergio made it his mission to take care of our group like we were family. This was my first trip with smarTours and will definitely not be my last.

We were on the same Amazing Thailand tour that Barbara Burke wrote about. She is 100% and more correct when she wrote about how wonderful and amazing Ketsara is. While Ketsara’s official title is tour director, she is that but so much more. She infuses her love and pride of Thailand in such a remarkable way leaving every person with a deep, fulfilling and spiritual experience every day of the trip. Ketsara shares with you her deep knowledge of Thai culture and history, her love of people, and Buddhism and leaves one wanting more. We are forever grateful to Ketsara for allowing us to love Thailand (and her) and to think of our trip daily as a life changing journey we will carry in our hearts always.

We took your Thailand tour on April 2018. It was an excellent trip, and we enjoy your beautiful Thailand and, it´s beautiful people. Noc, our tour guide took excellent care of us. She added her personal touch to all the attractions and places we went. Everybody in our group, became very fond for her. We think that you should know, that professionals Noc, are an asset to your operations. Cordially, Hector Hernandez and Mercedes Solano
