Tour: #46659, Lampang Elephant Conservation Center, elephant hospital and Wat Phrathat Lampang Luang, Chiang Mai, Thailand    view tour
Date: Oct 4/18

Chintana was the best. The ride in the van to the elephant preserve was roomy and comfortable. It was really nice to see the Thai countryside. She was knowledgeable and proud of Thailand and was eager to share that with us. We wanted to see things off of the beaten path and she accommodated us. She took us to a fantastic little restaurant and we had her order what she typically eats - great good and great company. Then she turned us on to an incredible street vendor for pad thai - overall, great day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leonard, Thank you for 5 stars rating. It was a pleasure to be your guide. Best regards, Chintana

Tour: Buddhism and Lanna culture Tour, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Date: Jan 7/18

I booked a private tour with Chintana for a group of women. She was incredibly thorough in her communications leading up to the trip, a great storyteller, flexible and knowledgable. She met my group at our hotel, where she give an introductory chat about Buddhism, Lanna Culture, history and more. This preliminary information was incredibly helpful in setting us up for the rest of the day, which included a chat with a Monk (very cool!) as well as visits to a number of temples.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary for your review. I am very pleased to have opportunity to meet you and you group. Best regards, Chintana

Tour: Chiang Mai important temple tour, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Date: Nov 26/17

Chintana is a wonderful guide. We wanted to see specific temples in Chiang Mai and she customized a tour of the temples for our group. Not only was she knowledgeable about temples, but she also knows so much about everything and was able to answer all our questions about Thailand culture, environment, food. I recommend Chintana as a tour to anyone who is curious and wants to know about Thailand. Thanks!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Josee, It was a pleasure to be a guide for your group. You and everybody in your group are easy going. So, make me feel happy to share and to show you as much as possible. Hope to see you back again. Best regards, Chintana

Tour: #43856, One day bird watching in Doi Suthep National Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand    view tour
Date: Mar 16/16

Chintana is a very knowledgeable guide and bird watcher. I had a great time during this one day tour, with experience sharing and getting to know her and her husband, driving us, and Thailand in general. I found Chintana a remarkable bird watcher, her sharp sight, ability to see very small birds from afar and to identify them impressed me a lot! I learned a lot today and I look forward to the next 2 days tour we have left. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Chirs, It was a pleasure to be your guide.

Absolutely fantastic! Chintana was wonderful. A great walking tour around chiang Mai including the market. The second day was even better. We were transported in a luxury van. We met a local guide in the national park who was amazing. He showed us over 20 local fruits, flowers, bark plus lots of birds. We ended the hike in his village and met his wife. a great lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch Chintana who is an expert bird watcher took us through a reserve and pointed out many rare birds
