Elaine K

Loved everything about this trip. The tour guides made it all happen for everybody in our group. Beautiful sites, kind local people, great group of people to travel with, elephant sanctuary, temples, nature, culture, spirituality, great food, boat rides, gorgeous beaches, snorkeling, massages… Just saying, perfection. Plane rides could be better arranged. Way too long getting home.

Tony V trip. We had 2 excellent tour guides

D. S

This tour shows you a lot of Thailand. We were lucky to have a most excellent tour director, Boeing. He made the trip awesome! He showed us a lot and he taught us a lot. Our 2 drivers were excellent too! My favorite thing about the bus ride were the bus snacks they bought us to try. I tried a lot more foods that I wouldn't have tried without them getting them for us! Eating Dancing Shrimp was my favorite! I don't cook, but The best cooking school in Chiang Mai was so fun with Chef Paul! It was the most delicious Thai food and I made it! We saw a lot of beautiful temples, but my favorite one was the Blue Temple in Chiang Rai. Breathtaking! Making paper was fun too and gave us a pretty souvenir. Seeing the elephants in their retirement home was wonderful also. There are many more memories too, but just too many to name them all! I also loved the Cambodian extension.

I submitted detailed feedback already.

Excellent tour guides and itinerary. An excellent tour value.

Terese G

This was a fabulous trip with two outstanding Tour Directors, Ketsara and Nok. Both were very professional and friendly and were willing to take us on many extra adventures, simply because we asked. I had high tea, traveled in a rikshaw with 19 others throughout Chiang Mai, visited elegant temples and palaces, and tasted a lot of new foods. Flower markets, floating markets, night markets-all were wonderful, unexpected adventures. Thailand's people are warm and welcoming and very polite. Language was not an issue. Don't miss an opportunity to visit this country!

Norma D

This tour provided a well balanced experience of the significant sights, direct observation of how people in various places live, restaurants, excellent hotels, fun and shopping opportunities along with both group and individual time. We were given an understanding of elements of history, cultures, modern day life and directly experienced the kindness and a heart-connection with people in Thailand. The Angkor Wat extension explored not only Angkor Wat but other marvelous temples. Our tour guides were deeply knowledgeable, professional, incredibly attentive and went out of their ways to make this a positive and memorable experience. I cannot commend this tour positively enough.


Great guides on amazing Thailand portion of trip.

Ray K

Amazing tour guide for Thailand. Ketsera and Nok have a high degree of knowledge about their country history and places we visited. They also have such a warm personality, unselfish devotion to our group of 17 tourists. Definitely, I will visit Thailand again in a few years.
