Fantastic day out made even better by having our excellent, friendly guide Puma to help us out and explain everything to us. Highlight was the trek through the forest and waterfalls with our guide from the Karen village, ending with strawberries and freshly made coffee. Plenty to see but still felt like a relaxed day away from the city. Incredible views from the Twin Pagodas too

May, our driver and guide was great! He spoke fluent English and of course Thai. He provided a good crash course history of Chiang Mai, Doi Inthanon, and Thailand in general. Very interesting. He was very kind, wanting to take pictures for us, providing refreshments, explained each place we went to in the right amount of detail, and gladly stopped at 7eleven per our request on the drive there. We stopped at the waterfall, the highest summit point, the two Pagodas for the previous king and queen, the local farmers market, and then after lunch we had a private guide to walk with us on the hike through the hiking tour in the forest. Our guide was a local to the area so he knew the whole area like the back of his hand. He spoke good English too! He was accommodating to my out of shape needs to break often too! This is where the private tour came in handy, we could go at the pace we wanted to and it was much more personalized. I was told it would be an easy hike downhill all the way, but it was a steep downhill which is actually tiring trying not to fall or slip the whole way. For people who regularly exercise, it should be a breeze. There is a short “coffee time” at the end of the hike where we drank freshly brewed coffee grown in the local farms. Coffee was great! Overall, we both really enjoyed the whole tour and would highly recommend to anyone looking for some outdoor activity and a bit of history.

BOOK THIS TOUR. Long review, but I organized it if you are scouting for clarifying points! Hope it helps! Summary: Private. Customized. Informative. Excellent service. Immersive. Easy-walking. Written by husband and wife of 26/27 years of age. USA. Guide: Jackie was an amazing tour guide and driver, a wealth of knowledge of the sights, Buddhism, and Thailand, and became a friend during our travel! Would absolutely recommend him as a tour guide. Timing/Comfort: Promptly on time at 7:00am sharp in a private car and drop off was exactly when stated as well around 6:30pm. Any time we rode inside he made sure the A/C had time to cool it down, provided cold water, and usually had a fun snack! I’m now in love with pineapple cookies??? Delicious. It was a 2-2.5 hour drive to Chiang Rai due to construction but I believe it only delayed us by about a half hour maybe. It’s the typical drive there. Accessibility: My husband and I are mid/late 20s, he has osteoarthritis and I have bad feet that by this point we’re covered in blisters... yet we were prepared for another day of ungodly amounts of walking and stairs... by this point in our trip we’re covered in blisters. This was very easy to do. Great for any fitness level. No where near as much walking as I anticipated. Leisurely walking and staring at the temples. Not rushed. Excellent pace to either move through it or pace yourself and enjoy. Not every temple is handicap accessible though. Sights: Each temple exceeded my expectations - each one as intricate, beautiful, and grandiose as the other in their own ways. The temples lack non-Thai language translations and explanations so a guide is a must to really understand the importance and meaning of these religious sacred works. Jackie makes sure to include you in Buddhist culture. Culture Difference: Tips for dress women must not have exposed chest, shoulders, or back. I brought a shawl and it worked well with my dress for the heat. Men cover shoulders as well. For shoes, be respectful with nice sandals and or nice tennis shoes. But remember you will be taking shoes off regularly. Do not step on the door threshold. Point toes away from the Buddha in each temple. Bow or drop head lower when passing a monk. All show signs of respect to the culture you are experiencing. Please, do not let asking if you want to partake in a Buddhist tradition that is accompanied by a donation be misconstrued as encouragement to donate or support local commerce or that you have to do so. You will be asked because people come to experience the culture. Each temple has donation boxes but some have bell ringing, coin tosses, incense, or candle lighting, etc. You may choose as many as you’d like or none at all. So don’t feel pressured. Most are just a coin or 20 Baht. Find out what day you were born on ahead of time or make a quick google search for an added treat to see what your birth color is! This is one of the reasons we decided to partake in a Buddhist tradition. Each tradition you participate in will either go to a specific charity for the community (care for elderly, coffin for the poor, building a hospital, orphanage, etc) or to support the temple you visited. I saw a couple comments about this when booking this tour and I thought I would provide some insight and clarity to this - you choose, no pressure, it’s them including you and being polite. Food: We stopped at a coffee shop on the way and dipped our feet in the hot spring. My feet loved it! Great coffee at 9-One. I am a barista and it was quite good and also unique. A good way to break up the drive if you need to stretch your legs or if you didn’t get breakfast before the early departure. Our lunch was fabulous at a local restaurant at the White Temple and Jackie also got us fresh pineapple as a refreshing treat afterwards. Photo Opps: Jackie made sure to take photos of my husband and I, get us to the best spots for photos, and give us as much time as we’d like at any spot. He also sent us photos promptly in the evening for us to have. Great shots and great photographer! Breaks/Toilet: Jackie made sure we felt comfortable asking for a break in the drive if needed and pointed out toilet stops at every location. Very helpful.
