My husband, 5 and 1/2 year old daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. Fortunately we only had 3 other travellers on the tour with us. Bob, our tour guide was excellent, he was very friendly and informative. There was a lot of variety over the 3 days. We enjoyed stopping at the roadside markets which broke up the long stretches in the minibus. We enjoyed all the food, especially enjoyable was our dinner at the Chiang Rai Night Bazaar. We thought the accommodation in Chiang Rai was better. We would definitely recommend this tour.
