It was the best tour we experienced in Thailand. Mario, our tour guide, was really friendly, very funny and made everything perfect for us, had plenty of time to relax, see the things we wanted to see and have one of the best experiences in this amazing lake. I suggest this tour for anyone wants to visit the lake.

This trip solely is probably not worth your money. At the point of arrival you can book an extra trip to a cave which was absolutely worth it for me and my girlfriend. The lake is beautiful and you will absolutely enjoy every second of it. The guide was great. Her husband is from Rotterdam. Luckily, I am too so we had a good connection.
