This travel company was the absolute best! Talk about bang for your buck! The travel company planed a 2 week trip for us to Thailand and we got to do everything imaginable from going to the floating market in Bangkok to swimming with elephants in the river in Chiang Mai to seeing Phi Phi island where the movie "The Beach" was filmed in Phuket. This travel company put us in the nicest hotels and all of the hotels were in a great location, especially the Bangkok and Chiang Mai hotels as they were all walking distance within everything.
From the first email to the very end of our trip, this travel company was the epitome of customer service! The travel company would answer every email and provided detailed responses to all of our questions. This travel company was great about providing detailed itineraries and ticket information right before our trip. They even provided travel information about the culture and the ever important information like how much to tip, etc. It was perfect! We even got to meet our travel planner (he arranged the entire trip for us) the first day we landed in Bangkok, which was so cool!
We had all private tours, except for two, and the non-private tours were just as cool as the private tours.
We had two minor issues - not at all the travel company's fault. One group tour was late picking us up and I accidentally misplaced my passport. Each time we contacted our travel specialist, he immediately picked up the phone. For the tour, we were picked up within 15 minutes of notifying the travel specialist and we didn't miss anything - the tour actually waited for us before starting. With my passport, our travel specialist immediately contacted the US consulate for us to figure out what were the next steps. Luckily, within that 15 minutes, I found my passport, but the point is our travel specialist was on top of things. You could count on him to assist you when you were in a foreign country.
In the end, I would highly recommend this travel company and we will definitely being using this travel company for our next Southeast Asia trip!
This isn't a fair question because everything was memorable! Eating at Chinatown in Bangkok was so neat and different. There was so much food and options that I left gaining 10 pounds. The floating market was another awesome experience - it was 90 kilometers outside of Bangkok.
The temples in Bangkok and Chiang Mai are unbelievable! I am not Buddhist, but I was impressed and loved touring the temples.
Chiang Mai was our absolute favorite stop on the trip! It had markets galore and it was super cheap - the US dollar went extremely far with getting a meal under $2. The weather was cooler in Chiang Mai, which presented a nice reprieve from the hot weather. It was in Chiang Mai that we visited the elephant sanctuary and got to feed and bathe the elephants. This is an experience I will never forget!
We would probably spend more time in Chiang Mai and apparently everyone said to visit Chiang Rai so we would want to visit there on our next trip.
We would ensure all hotels were within walking distance of the city. The Phuket hotel was a 15 minute walk from Karon Beach and a 15 minute taxi drive to Patong. The taxis are not cheap in Phuket so it would have been nice to save money there.
