Our tour with Nui was phenomenal. We experienced so much throughout the full day: pagodas, hiking, waterfalls, coffee at a roasters, great lunch, and so much more. Nui offered additional facts that we wouldn't have learned elsewhere about things like the vegetation and landscape. We really appreciated that. We highly recommend this tour and Nui as a guide!

We cannot say enough good things about the Doi Inthanon tour. First of all, our guide Taksin was PHENOMINAL. What an incredibly learned man - especially regarding the history of Thailand. The King & Queen Pagodas were most special and very different to any other Pagoda we saw. The history of modern Thailand is beautifully detailed in the interior carvings. The vista, the gardens - were all spectacular. My husband took the 1.5 hour trek (I couldn't as I injured myself the day before) and he loved the details provided by the local guide who joined Taksin and my husband. Details about herbs and their medicinal uses were fascinating. Bravo for a wonderful day and a very special tour guide. Thank you Taksin - and also to Tom the driver!

The tour was extremely organized, punctual and fun. Our driver, Surat, was excellent. He drove with caution and we felt very comfortable and safe during the hour and a half drive. Our guide, Ploy, was knowledgeable in the Thai, Hmong and Karen tribe culture. His English was also really good and so we were able to communicate without difficulty. The hike at the highest peak was our favorite. Near the end of the tour at the waterfalls, Surat and Ploy let us spend as much time as we wanted even though it was getting late. They did not rush us and were very patient. Excellent tour - highly recommend this tour if you are considering!
