We went to the dock and as luck would have it We were the last boat for the day and so there was no hurry to get there and back. The ride on the Ping River is informative and relaxing and some good photo ops. When You arrive at the small farm at the northern end of the trip, You will have a nice walk through the garden to the little cafe/bar sample their home grown drinks and the best Pad Thai and Khao Soi I have ever eaten and with any luck and if it is not too busy You will meet the family who own and run the cafe, also the man who introduced the tail boat rides to Chiang Mai after bringing the boats up from Phuket and refitting them to suit the river work. I really liked the whole experience and will do it again if I get the chance.

Very sadly this business is no longer in operation. There is another company Ping Naka River Cruises operating out of the same premises but the tour they offer is only up and down the river and not the exciting sounding adventure described by other reviewers here.

We had a nice tour of Ping River and enjoyed the tour at the little farm area with introduction to native plants and the lovely sticky rice with mango.

We decided, on the spur of the moment, to do a boat trip on the Mae Ping so googled the possibilities and at about 08:00 emailed this firm. The reply was almost immediate and by 08:30 we had booked for the 11:00 with pick up at 10:40. The tuk tuk was on time and we got to the departure point early so were able to chat to the operators. The cruise was pleasant but the stories of the old days and the photographs made this fascinating. Then we were shown the owners garden which we found most interesting and then we had black sticky rice with mango plus with jack fruit. Highly recommended.

What a great and relaxing experience. We were immediately met with the chiang mai smile. We had laughs and learned so much about Chiang Mai, on a personal level, and not what they think will sell you. We learned about the different plants, fruits and vegetables in chiang mai. Then, finished the tour off with amazing mango and sticky rice and entertainment to finish the trip. I highly recommend this for all ages.
