Anan is a great tour guide and very knowledgeable and friendly. Pai is a very relaxed gorgeous view of the mountains and nature is just breathtaking. Going to see Mok Fah Waterfall was so beautiful, stop to see the Historical Bridge, temple- Wat Phra That Mae Yen is amazing- beautiful , Thai lunch, and Coffee in Love was amazing besides the coffee, the view is so beautiful and camp tents site. It is a must see snd highly recommended.

The tour was absolutely great. The guides were awesome, we laughed a lot. However, we booked a German-speaking tour, both spoke English, unfortunately nobody informed us about it. Furthermore, we understood something different by biking, in the end we just rode our bikes down the mountain, you know that and it's enough for you, the tour is perfect.
