This type of tour is not usually our thing, but our bed & breakfast host highly recommended it. We loved every minute of this tour and we're so glad we did it! Mr. P was a wonderful and entertaining host. He even arranged for my husband and I to have our own interpreter for English, since the rest of the participants spoke French (Mr. P speaks both). We learned so much about his community and Thai culture, food, cottage industries, and agriculture. We had a hands-on cooking demonstration followed by a fabulous lunch cooked by our host, his wife, and his mother, in their home. We got to taste some interesting things at nearby farms and even get in the mud and plant rice in a rice paddy! What Mr. P is doing to help support and promote his community and its way of life is truly awe-inspiring. What a great day. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that will be in the Chiang Mai or Lamphun area!

We enjoyed the day of learning about the more traditional thai life. Of course, as said in another review not everything is authentic but that is because some things like rice farming are only done certain months but for the tour Mr. P makes sure to have water in his field so tourists can see the process year round. We really appreciate Mr. P enthousiasme and getting to interact with the locals to ask questions about their way of life. I would highly recommend

After searching for a day activity with our children (6 & 3) that was not elephant related or a trek that could not have followed, we went for the Banthi tour. Let’s just right there if you don’t want to read all the way down: JUST GO!! Although the program seemed a little heavy and long for the kids, it was not at all. They loved everything about it: the cricket and frog farm (and the snake), the weaving, the cooking at Mr Phi’s house with all his family where kids can relax and play, the mushroom farm, the confection cooperative and the rice fields. Everything is the right timing, people are just so friendly and genuinely happy that you come to know what they are doing and appreciate their lifestyles. Memories forever for the family “until it disappears” says Mr Phi. Lastly, this day would not be the same without Mr Phi (aka Mr Barbeeeeecue), you’ll understand when you meet him 😀. His eagerness to make you discover, his true sense of hospitality and his humor makes this day unforgettable. We’re so glad we got to spend the day with him and his family.

Pii guided us professionally through a day full of interesting activities. That's what I liked most about this tour, we could 'do' something! All of the experience seems natural and authentic. Cooking some very delicious thai dishes with fresh ingredients, planting rice in the fields and supporting the local old people by attending the tour, these were my highlights. Pii organised everything to detail, from rooster fighting, cricket farm to cooking class. Just perfect!

An amazing tour, one of the highlights of my trip to Thailand. A beautiful experience to give a good idea of local life and customs of the region, an authenticity that other tours don't provide. Mr. P is enthusiastic and eager to share his knowledge and hometown with you. Everyone we met on the village tour was so warm and welcoming. The money from the tour is poured back into the community and everyone benefits from it. Highly recommended!
