Chiang Rai Driver Recommendations

We will be traveling around Chaing Rai for a few days in August. Can anyone recommend a good driver/tour guide? There will be four of us traveling and would like someone who is reasonably priced and is flexible.

There is an FAQ in the upper right hand corner of this forum page titled "Finding a Tour Guide." Click on that link and then scroll down past Bangkok and Chiang Mai and you will find a section for "Chiang Rai."

Once you decide on a guide, a good way to determine if he/she is a good guide is to place their name in the "search" section of this Chiang Rai forum page, which is located in the center of the page about a third of the way down from the top. That will pull up all the comments about the guide.

You will find most of the recommendations here are for guides, rather than drivers, as many of the drivers in this area do not speak English. Most of the tour guides speak English fairly well, although some better than others.

We use Jermsak when we are in the Chiang Rai area, as his English is great, he is very flexible and he is just a great human being. I have also used Mr. Cha (Charlie) as an interpreter and he is also a guide. Pam speaks excellent English but does more of the "typical tourist" route and prefers not to do as much of the "adventure" or off the beaten path. I've met Mr. Sing and also think he is a nice man.

Hope that helps some.
