A Recent Review of this tour

We were privileged to spend the day with Suphote. He is an extremely knowledgeable professional who is most accommodating. Our candid conversation carried throughout the day and was so informative and absolutely enjoyable. If in Chiang Rai, reach out and schedule this must do tour. Looking forward to our next visit to Chiang Mai and will be sure to contact Suphote who we now call the "jack of all trades".
