Our guide, Po, spoke very good English, and told us really a lot about history of the places. He was very interested in sharing a lot of culture himself, and we really left knowing a lot about Thailand, people, culture and religion, than before. All temples were beautiful and museum visit was very interesting. This is a very good choice of tour to start exploring Chiang mai.

I had Paul take me on the tour and wow he is exceptionally knowledgeable. This was the best way to see the temples in Chiang Mai so you can understand the story and history of what you’re looking at. Paul (his English name), was so knowledgeable, courteous and I was engaged throughout. Cold water and face towel in the searing heat. Highly recommend this tour!
