Tour Guides for Chiang Rai help

Hi. I emailed several guides for Chiang Rai for 2 possible tours BUT they have instantly been returned. They all had hotmail addresses could that be the problem.?

We go next month and it's getting late to book up a guide etc.

Any help would be much appreciated

For Thailand, next month is a leftime away. You can often book guides very close to your trip. Have you tried all these?

Not sure what the problem is with the "hotmail" addresses. I use Jermsak, who has a yahoo address, and I haven't had any of those returned as of late.

A lot of the guides on the recommended list above do book up pretty quickly, as there are fewer guides in Chiang Rai with a good command of English than you can find in Chiang Mai or Bangkok etc. I'd suggest trying again or calling a guide. You are visiting during low season so you might still have some luck in booking one of these guides.

You can of course always find a tuk tuk driver in front of the clock tower, the night market or the White Temple and they will offer to drive you around, but few of them speak English well.

Safe Travels,

Broder

I used Jermsak for my personal guide the first of May, 2012 for 3 days. He was excellent and I was able to get so much more out of my trip than otherwise would have without the services of a great guide. We did part on motorbike and a couple days in car. His English is great and he is most competent, desiring to provide you with personalized service. My 3 days with him were well planned out and executed. Without hesitation would recommend his services.

There is also another guide that I do believe works through the Le Meridian Hotel. His name is Mr. Cha. He is fairly proficient in English and a very intelligent man. If you are having troubles getting booked through the others that are listed you might want to give Le Meridian a call!

If you don't mind joining a group tour, you can always make reservation at the hotel front desk.

I was trying to email Jermsak, who has had a lot of recommendations and the email I had did not work. If you have his email please let me know.

The e-mail I have communicated with Jermsak through is:

jermsak_cei@yahoo.co.th

Good luck. He carries a cell phone and if you need that I may have it, but not sure. Where I stayed, Baan Nattanadee has his cell number as they called him for me while there and their e-mail address is: baannattanadee@gmail.com

They are a great place if you are looking for a B & B.
