The tour guide was very friendly and was able to tell us a lot about the culture of Thailand with her knowledge. She speaks German very well. We can recommend them without reservation. A great tour. All participants were enthusiastic. The driver was also very friendly. We have absolutely nothing to complain about the tour. Should we come back to Thailand it would be great to do another tour with the tour guide.

Great tour with July! Lots of personal information too! Great was the choice of temples away from the crowds! Absolutely recommendable, we would book again at any time! But the "old town" should be deleted from the description, as you only drive through one street, you expect something different! Kind regards Aiko & Family
