The amazing Thailand tour was a true experience. It was well worth the trip. The tour director was very knowledgeable about the country its culture and was able to educate the group about it. The program was packed but well worth it. I will definitely recommend this tour.

Great tour with good balance of activities. Very friendly people and always felt safe. Not speaking Thai was not an issue and most people we came across could speak some English and those that could not were so friendly and patient that we worked it out. Was a great way to see all of Thailand. Great tour guides that are not just good tour guides but great people.

This was our third SmarTours and all have been good, but this was by far the best! This was due to the combination of our team of Tour Directors and Drivers, as well as being able to be immersed in the Thai Culture. We were able to see, do, and be part of so many experiences that would not have been possible had we tried to plan a trip without someone native to the country who spoke the language and was aware of the memorable opportunities. We were exposed to a variety of new foods, got to learn about Thai history, and see so many important parts of the Thai culture. Many thanks!
