My wife and I were taken on an adventure to go zip lining, visit the Karen (Long Neck) people, eat lunch, experience the beautiful blue temple, and explore the sticky waterfalls. Our guide Ek facilitated our journey with the highest level of professionalism and entertainment. Ek has thoroughly engaged with us the entire trip by sharing his deep knowledge about his homeland and the sites of our visits. Even with all the different locations we visited, we did not feel rushed; instead felt that Ek enhanced our experience. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chiang Mai. If there is any doubt or decision-making, just do it. You will not regret this fantastic adventure.

My tour of Chiang Mai was amazing! My guide, Puma, was what made it so special. She was so fun, and we were all laughing together all day. She told us the histories and stories behind everything we did today and made it personal and interesting. Like when it was time to eat lunch, she didn't just recommend we try Khoa Soi, she told us how it's a special dish that's native to Northern Thailand. She helped us order and continued to tell stories with us throughout lunch. It was like going on a vacation with a close friend. I was so excited to go ziplining at the Phoenix Adventure Park, however, the Bua Thong Waterfall ended up being the best part of my tour. Puma took us first to the Seven Colors Cold Spring and explained the histories of the water there. It made it even more magical. I am so glad I got to make these memories with Puma today. I will never forget her. If I ever come back to Chiang Mai, I hope I get to see her again. Thank you so much for the best day ever!

Our guide and driver were extremely friendly and attentive and really showed us a great day.Went ziplining at Phoenix adventure park first which was easily the best I've done anywhere. At least 10 good long sections ziplining with rope course links between. Then visits to the hill tribes village, Bua Thong Waterfalls and the local market, all worth a visit. All round a great day.

The zipline was amazing, the whole family felt safe and had great time. Lunch was chicken and rice, not what we expected. The guide was a nice person who made some inappropriate comments about personal life for my husband and kids. Unfortunately we had a very bad weather, we could not enjoy the waterfall, and all was rushed. I only would recommend the zipline at Phoenix adventure.

Our tour was truly one of the highlights of our trip! Our tour guide Noi was wonderful - so knowledgable, kind and helpful. She even stopped and helped navigate a pharmacy for one of us that wasn't feeling well. The Sticky Waterfalls are not to be missed! 10/10 would recommend.

Our tour guide, Puma, was the best. She had excellent English, very knowledgeable, and was great to talk with.
The zipline was fun. We crossed over a roaring river several times and even propelled straight down. We felt safe and the guides were funny.
The long neck tribe was interesting. Purchased a couple handmade scarves, they are beautiful and we were happy to support them.
Our favorite part was the Bau Thong waterfall. So much fun to climb. We went up and down twice. It is bigger than what I expected, had three tiers.
The whole time Puma provided water, interesting facts about each place, provided an excellent lunch and kept an eye on our personal belongings while Ziplining and climbing the waterfall.

I can't tell you the difference the right tour guide makes. Kai was wonderful. He really took the experience to the next level. His mastery of English was superb. He was quick to point out landmarks and explain the history of the land without being prompted by questions. He was always looking out for us and understood we were "pickier" eaters.

He had a very easy manner and my family enjoyed his company. If you go with the Pagoda View Tours, be sure to ask for him!

May was an amazing guide for our Northern Thailand tour -- great English and sense of humor :) The tour itself was very fun. Ziplining was safe and professional, with great views -- though it can seem short if you rush it so take your time! The waterfalls were the best part. Truly breathtaking and so much fun. The tour even dropped us off at a hotel in the jungle, rather than back in Chiang Mai, for no additional fee! Very happy with our tour, thanks May!
