Il viaggio in minivan è molto comodo, l'autista è stato prudente e hanno dei limiti di velocità che ti fanno stare tranquilli. La guida thailandese è stata cordiale e disponibile.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5.5 day Thailand tour and highly recommend it as a relatively economical way to see a lot of Thai historical/significant sites and the Thai countryside. We knew going into it that there was a lot of driving involved and there was certainly that. The good news is that there were only six of us on the tour and the Toyota van (every non-bus Thai tour group uses Toyota vans) was comfortable enough that some of us could nap between destinations. My recommendation to Destination Services was that another day be added to cut down on the van time per day. Our guide, "Jerry" (seems Thai's adopt anglo nicknames. our driver was "Tom"), was probably our favorite part of the tour. His knowledge of what we were seeing, familiarity with Buddhism, pride in Thai culture, friendliness, and openness to questions was very special. His familiarity with the sites and driving time allowed him to tweak the schedule to maximize site visits and limit redundant driving. Plus, he welcomed my wife and I to join him at the end of the day to experience Thai culture outside of the hotel. I don't know what to say about the hotels and lunches. The hotels were more upscale than those my wife and I usually stay in and had the corporate sterility that I associate with the hotels I stayed in while traveling for business in the US. Except for the Chiang Mai Holiday Inn, most hotels had DDTT food (dumb-down Thai tourist) or mediocre international cuisine (this from our traveling companions -- we ate out) which wasn't why we to Thailand. Our knock on the Holiday Inn is that it had paper-thin walls and we could hear our neighbors and hall traffic all too well. We called the front desk at 1:30 a.m. to get them to quiet down the Chinese guests next door. Still, the Holiday Inn had the largest buffet breakfast I've ever seen and staying more than a couple of days could be bad for your waistline. Lunches were an interesting adventure. Lunch stops were universally situated to accommodate tour buses. Jerry was very good at getting us to them before the large buses arrived. The food was either buffet or already set so no real choice on what we got. My wife and I noticed that other tour groups had different food which, we thought, looked more interesting that what we ate. I suppose that was due to our anglo status. Disclosure: my wife and I generally enjoyed true Thai food than our fellow travelers; Jerry said in 15 years he had only one other couple who really embraced Thai cooking like we did. We also pointed out to Jerry that the Destination Services itinerary said we would see monkeys which we didn't see. This was a bigger deal until we actually saw monkeys; not our favorite animals. The only other thing we would have liked was an opportunity to visit one or two national parks that we drove through. This probably wouldn't have been desirable to our companions but my wife and I didn't get enough walking/exploration time. We're glad to have been on this tour. It was a great introduction to Thailand and its culture and history. Highly recommended.

    Not much activity, long bus ride, short walking distance and back to bus again. A lot of temple visit, not much variety of activity. Good hotel, good choice of lunch Stop which is included, good transport

    This tour was awesome! Going from Bangkok all the way to the North of course requires a lot of driving but we never drove for more then 2-3 hours without stopping at some kind of site. I really feel like I saw all of Thailand (minus the south of course) through this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I felt like I learned a lot and got a truly well rounded view of Thailand. My only critiques would be that the restaurants for lunch were obviously geared towards tourists so the food was good but it was tourists Thai food, not the real stuff. Also more time with the elephants!

    This was a good experience, overall. Best thing was that we were only 4 persons on this group, but our guy was not the best one. He was friendly and helpful enough, but his knowledge was not the best.

    Our time with the 6 Day Experience Thailand Tour was good. I cannot say very good for the following reasons... - English speaking guide “Paul” was quite weak communicating in English. - Frequently Paul would put his own comfort ahead of ours - we were separated and left alone for all meals; no interaction or attempt made to unite the small group of 7 that we were - overall it was a good trip, but not a great trip and it so easily could have been much better

    This tour takes you the northern parts of beautiful Thailand, covering ancient kingdom ruins in Ayutthaya and Sukhothai, a lot of Buddhist temples in different styles (Lanna, Cambodia, Burma), and some other activities like a boat ride, a local market and an elephant farm. While it is a worthwhile experience, be sure this tour does involve a lot of driving. By a lot I mean about 1000km in 6 days at 90 km/h speed. You should be ready for it. The guide was very well informed. Sometimes he was a bit on the moody side which I didn't enjoy too much. The car and all hotels were okay. The food is touristy but many people apparently like this more than true Thai cuisine. For me the experience could have had two points of improvement: 1. When paying a little over 500 EUR, one non-alocoholic drink for each lunch (five occasions) should really be included. They would not even equal 5 EUR total. The programme itinery on here never stated drinks are not covered, but also didn't state they are extra either. To me, this was kinda picky. 2. I am not sure whether going to Chiang Mai first and finishing up at the Golden Triangle/Chiang Rai would probably be the better schedule. Chiang Mai's beautiful downtown could he explored a bit more extensively, and it would be an earlier change-up to the many temples. Also the way from Lampang to Chiang Mai is not far and would break-up the tedious long driving days a little more early. Recommended but you should know what you get here.
    Destination Services Thailand commented on this review
    Dear Sascha Thank you very much for your feedback regarding your recent trip with us. I am sorry to learn that there was some confusion with the drinks and I will ensure that this is made clearer going forward. We have chosen to visit Chiang Rai before Chiang Mai as there are better flight connections available from Chiang Mai to other destinations in Thailand. Once again, thank you very much for your feedback.
