A Recent Review of this tour

I am so happy that we found Lin! She and her friend Rain took us to wonderful, local places and shared a lot with us about the culture. We really got to understand Chiang Mai in a way that could have never done on our own. And the food - so great!!! We went to real local places that aren't (yet) overrun by tourists and experienced fantastic cuisine that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. This tour was by far the highlight of our stay in Chiang Mai and our trip to Thailand. Thanks so much!!!!!
