What Our Visitors Say About Our Tours

Chiang Mai a la Carte provided the ultimate guide and driver for the perfect trip. Our guide Mr. Bay was so much fun. He spoke perfect English, and very knowledgeable about everything. It was like traveling with a friend. I cannot recommend a guide with more enthusiasm. Mr. Bay is a thoughtful, quick whited, comfortable person to be with. He is very respectful to his culture and faith. Mr. Bay went out of his way to provide the best and most wonderful time on my entire trip. The driver was a guy named Joe who was also a wonderful and safe driver. Thank you Mr Bay for your friendship and making our trip so special.

Like another reviewer, I was referred to Chiang Mai a la Carte by Michiel from BKK. I was looking for a private guide to take my elderly parents around Chiang Mai as well as the surrounding region for 3 full days. Having been to Chiang Mai a few times, I knew in advance exactly what I wanted to cover each day of the tour, but even with my local knowledge, Chiang Mai a la Carte was able to suggest a few hidden gems that I wasn’t even aware of. They made the travel very easy for my parents. Both the driver and our guide were delightful and a great match to our own temperament. I will absolutely book them the next time I am in the region.

Frans was so kind and enthusiastic in planning my trip around Northern Thailand. I had a particular family story to follow in Chiang Mai, Lampang and Phrae which he was able to research before I arrived. This allowed me to make the most of my trip. We have a shared interest in the history of Chiang Mai and the old Teak trade. Frans has been able to identify many of my grandfather’s photographs when he lived out in Chiang Mai in the 1920-30s. Frans comes with my highest recommendation. Thank you so much.
