The tour was well-timed at 4 hours and the afternoon start (1PM/13:00) was great, as we preferred to sleep in. The guide was a seemingly very nice person as well. The tour did accomplish the goal of visiting 3 temples in Chiang Mai, one of which was Wat Doi Suthep, a must-see temple in Chiang Mai. The last time I was there was over 20 years ago so it was fun to see how the area has changed. So, generally, mission accomplished. However... our guide had a very poor knowledge of English. He could fluently deliver the info he had memorized about the handful of things he pointed out at the temples. But if asked a question about it, or about anything, he could not answer. He could only repeat a portion of what he had already said. We got more info by scanning a QR code at the temple than from our guide. While there were other guides there who were pointing out features of the temple, sharing historical info and fables, etc, ours could only say “same as other side” and point out trees with universal names, like “Banyan tree” and “tamarind”. He was also so low energy that it was a pretty quiet trip. I felt bad for the Korean ladies on our trip, who despite the evidence that our guide was completely unable to guide us, kept asking questions, and getting unrelated answers. I think by the end the English speaking one was pretending to translate for the other, and just making things up. Even I was able to answer a question that our guide couldn’t. By the end, my husband and I just wanted to get back to the hotel. It was as if our guide’s lack of excitement sapped ours as well. All that aside, the temples are quite beautiful, and the fact that we were there in shoulder season made them less crowded, and easier to enjoy/appreciate. Wat Suandok was almost empty, which was great. I would recommend this tour for the sites, and go with the expectation that the guide is there just to facilitate transport and smooth entry to sites. Bonus if he speaks the advertised language.
