From the moment we landed in the Chiang Mai airport we felt that someone is going to really look after us and make this weekend awesome. Suphote is very punctual, kind and he really cares a lot about you! Walking the Chiang Mai streets and visiting the temples gave us a glimpse to Suphote's wealth of knowledge about the history and culture of the place and all of that was conveyed to us in very well spoken English. You will truly be lucky to get Suphote as your tour guide! Thank you Suphote!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your compliment and give me 5 stars. Best regards, Suphote

A tour with Suphote is like spending the day seeing the sights with a very knowledgeable old friend. If I could give him 10 stars, I would! The Hmong village felt genuine and non-commercial. Suphote has a unique ability to connect with people, has great relationships with the villagers which afforded us a glimpse into their lives. At Wat Prathat Dou Suthep, with Suphote's kind help, I was able to make an offering to a monk for a sick friend. What a powerful experience it was! It was a perfect day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura, Thank you very much for your kind comment and give me 5 stars rating. I am appreciate. Best regards, Suphote

We had the pleasure of touring 2 days with Suphote (Pot, and his lovely wife whom helped with transport). He is kind, flexible, knowledgable, professional and passionate about sharing with others. Our customized tour included hiking Doi Inthanon and a City/Temple Tour, both which included admissions, lunch, iced water & towels, ponchos & umbrellas, etc. He thought of everything! We enjoyed the personal time with them discussing the culture, religion, politics & history. Awesome time!! Highly Recommend!!

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".

Ann BrodyUnited States
I had an outstanding experience with Suphote as my guide for the day. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but he was talented in adapting the tour to my interests and going out of his way to find places that would interest me, including places that were off the beaten path for tourists. I can't recommend him highly enough, especially for the tourist who wants a custom-tailored tour from a well-educated, "insider" who gave 150% of himself to create a memorable experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to take you out yesterday. Best regards, Suphote
Mr. Suphote H is the best guide we ever had! Best! In every sense, on every field. If you plan to go to Chiang Mai HE is a must! Highest rank!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Wojeck and Ewa, I am very pleased to be your guide and hope to see you back in Thailand again. Best regards, Suphote

Harry H.United States
Suphote is an excellent guide. He arranged a custom tour and took us to places not often visited by Western tourists. He correctly and honestly describes his English as advanced and not fluent; we could understand 95% of his words and only rarely had to ask him to repeat himself. I have no reservations about recommending Suphote.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harry, Thank you for your kind feed back. I hope you and your wife enjoy the rest of the trip in Thailand. Best regards, Suphote
Karen L.United States
Our time in Chiang Mai with Suphote was fantastic! We saw so many beautiful and interesting places with him. He was very knowledgeable and has many talents and skills. We only had a couple of days and he took us all the "must sees". We fit a lot in! Prior to our trip, he was very helpful and gave us suggestions about how to best spend our time while there and gave us recommendations for hotels. Two thumbs up for Suphote!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind feed back. Best regards, Suphote
I cannot recommend this tour enough. Suphote is the sweetest tour guide I have ever had. His tour will be filled with memories of a lifetime. The offering to the monks was so touching and his knowledge of Buddhism is very indepth. His tour helped us understand so much more about Thailand. The food on the tour is also amazing. He caters to any and all needs. He is so kind and accommodating. If you are in Chiang Mai this tour is a must.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mia, Thank you very much for your kind feed back. Hope to see you and your Mom again. Best regards, Suphote

This was the third day of exploring Chiang Mai with our awesome guide, Suphote (Pot). It was decided that it would be good to cycle outside of Chiang Mai city, in a semi rural area. Pot arrived at our hotel in the morning with bikes and helmets of excellent quality. We travelled by taxi truck to our cycling starting point. The trip was superb - starting by visiting a lady working in her market garden and finished by exploring an area buried by flooding in early 1200 and being rediscovered now. Awesome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, I appreciate you taking the summit rating my service. Best regards, Suphote
Jos MurrayNew Zealand
Day 2 with Pot! A day we will never forget! Into the mountains ... visiting the Hmung tribal people who settled in the mountains from China after WW2, a coffee plantation (one of the King's initiatives), the King's holiday palace which was very busy but subdued following the King's death, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple and surrounding mountain areas. This trip is highly recommendable. It was life-changing for us! And Suphote (Pot) was his delightful, well organised, flexible and accommodating self.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jos, Thank you for giving me 5 starts. I appreciate it. Best regards, Suphote
Jos MurrayNew Zealand
Day 1 using Tours by Locals. Our guide,Suphote (Pot) met us at our hotel and we were immediately aware of his passion to share his city and surrounds with us. We headed into the greater Chiang Mai area and out to the Mae Taeng Elephant Park and Ring Neck tribal village. On the way Pot detoured to various places of interest including a factory where hand-made, beautifully decorated biers, used on top of coffins at Thai funerals, were made. Day 1 with Pot-fantastic, signalling the unique experiences to come
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jos, Thank you for your kind comment. I am glad that you enjoy the tour with me. Best regards, Suphote

I had a fantastic time on the Doi Inthanon trip! Suphote is an experienced, professional tour guide, who made every moment a fun-filled engaging experience. Suphote introduced me to the wonderful Karen people and it was obvious that he knows and cares about them. As we hiked through the forest, over rickety bridges, and past gorgeous waterfalls I learned so much about the culture and history of Thailand from him. Don't miss the chance to tour with Suphote. He will make it a life-changing experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments.
