A Recent Review of this tour

The best part of this tour were all the 'insider' food places (Thai ice coffee, noodles, desserts, etc.) We would not have been able to find these restaurants without this tour. Don't eat breakfast before this tour. We saw two temples. Be prepared to take off your shoes as you enter the temple. Also, some of the surfaces approaching the temples are cobblestoned, so wear comfortable shoes. It was extremely hot, so be prepared! Wear comfortable clothes.
