This was a great trip. Well worth a visit and we had M and Jackie as our tour guide and driver and they really transformed the experience into something amazing. Nothing was too much, they had so much interesting stuff to tell you and said it in an engaging way. Didn’t repeat any information unless we missed it the first time, had very very good English. Also took us to a great spot for lunch and the typical Thai selection was spot on m, perfect for any pallet.

Toej was a very helpful and informative guide! One thing to keep in mind, I've spent the majority in the car (around 6 to 8 hours). It would have been nice if we were a bit more active. Such as fruit picking or something since in Chang Rai they're mostly farmers.

Our guide, Mr T, was very nice with a lot of humor, he adapted the excursion to our pace since we were lucky enough to be only two! The meal was delicious, in a typical restaurant hidden by the side of the road. The road is indeed long, but we have the opportunity to appreciate the landscape of small towns and the countryside. Thanks to our driver and Mr T, we really enjoyed this day.
