Great tour. The white aswell as the blue temple are totally worth the long ride. Even the black house really suprised me. Ony the stop on the way up was too long. We stopped at the hot springs. But it‘s mainly full of tourists and souvenir shops. Would have been ok for a quick toilet break. But we stayed there as long as at the blue temple. Everything else was perfectly. Great Guide, Vasit. Also the driver was super-friendly. I can definitely recommend this tour.

I took this trip in late December 2022. I was the only guest that day but I’m grateful the tour company didn’t cancel the trip. On the contrary, I was treated like a VIP. The tour guide, Nicky, and the driver were flexible and I was able to customise the trip. The drive was long but it was comfortable. Nicky was a great guide. Highly recommended.

The black house was better than I anticipated. The blue temple was beautiful. The highlight was the white temple. It is stunning. We had ample time at each sight to wander and take photos. Our tour guide Sunni and driver were great

A special shout out to our tour guide Eve who was amazing. He really made the day fun and took the time to explain everything to us, answering any questions and ensuring we were okay and having fun. The white temple is beautiful

Was a long day :) and our guide, Mr. Tui, was amazing!
