About Chiang Mai a la Carte

Private tours

Chiang Mai a la Carte specialises in private Chiang Mai and North Thailand tours. We offer a wide range of day tours and multiple day tours on this website. We offer all kinds of tours: cultural tours, samlor tours, temple tours, historical tours, culinary tours, trekking tours, family tours, festival tours, handicraft tours, bicycle tours, tribal culture tours, Buddhism tours, national park tours, adventure tours and special interest tours. All these tours are based on thorough research. We update the itineraries regularly.
We promote sustainable and responsible practices during our tours. We only use a small number of selected guides who are the best in the business. We work with local communities. We want to preserve local traditions and local culture. We love heritage buildings and houses.
We have hundreds of private tour itineraries in our Chiang Mai a la Carte vault. We have produced these over the years and are adding tours constantly. There is only a selection of these tours on our website. They are presented in shortened descriptions.


All our tours can be customized. Your visit to our region deserves special “a la carte” treatment. Chiang Mai a la Carte is always looking for the unique places, small restaurants, lesser-visited markets, hidden temples, special events and meaningful encounters with local people that will make your visit extra special. If you have any specific interest such as textiles, architecture, Buddhism, train rides and so on, please let us know. We have a new detailed customization form. Customization is one of our main strengths.

What makes Chiang Mai a la Carte different?

Our extraordinary passion and eye for details makes us different. We promote not only the nationwide festivals such as Loy Krathong and Songkran but also lesser known local events such as Poy Sang Long, Salak Yom and tribal festivals. We have a number of standard programs designed around these events but can always make a customised program for you. We promote conservation of our natural environment as well as of cultural traditions. We love heritage houses and buildings.
