Reviews from our guests

Trip was okay-ish. Unfortunately, our driver was not speaking English at all, so the communication was a bit tricky. We used an online translation app, but you do not always have internet at the national park, so we could not use it all the time. The driver was very committed though.
We also had to pay on top for: pick up at hotel and for entrance fees: approx 800 baht (2 pax plus the car we came with), which were not mentioned in the cost proposal.
Furthermore, in the end we could not pay the whole experience costs via credit card, that’s why we had to get to an ATM and paid bank fees of 7€ as well.
All in all, in a nutshell it was a „taxi service“ experience, because no additional information could be given by the driver due to not speaking English.
Tour operator's response
You have mistaken this simple taxi service BIG TIME to a guided tour with an English speaking guide. So, you are avoiding to pay 3 times more money for a guided tour, and expect that same service from a taxi service?
First of all, here above in this taxi details page, please see unter "Price", this is clearly stated;
"The quotes shown further below are per taxi (not per person) and include fuel, driver's and car's entrance fees (not yours). The service hours can also be extended at the attractions for an additional +200 Baht per starting hour."
"The price doesn't include your personal expenses like your entrance fees, guide fees to walk trails, meails, refreshments. No tips needed, there won't be any hidden costs on top of what we agree in advance."
Furthermore, during the enquiry process between us and you, we clearly stated this (copy+pasting from our reply to you);
"Your personal expenses like entrance fees to the national park, meals, refreshments are not included, if you choose to walk the Kew Mae Pan trail, the group charge (quite cheap) for local guides at the trailhead is also not included in our price. Once the national park entrance fee is paid, no other entrance fees apply to the attractions inside the park with the exception of 100 Baht per person to enter Two Chedis (Twin Pagodas)."
We do type this to ALL OUR GUESTS.
To us, it looks like you are not reading anything written to you. Your eyes probably quickly seek the line where we mentioned the price, and here afterwards you are accusing us of giving you misleading information.
A taxi service is simply a taxi service. It is also illogical to have a fixed taxi price including the entrance fees because there can be 1 up to 4 passengers in the car, entrance fees varying 400 - 1200 Baht (park + 2 Chedis).
If you take a taxi in your country to some attractions that requires entrance fees, ask driver to wait until you are back, why would that taxi driver pay your your entrance fees?
Our drivers are not guides, they are not allowed to act like one. This because they don't have a guide licence, acting like a guide would put them and us in trouble with the authorities. They can not give you any information about the attractions, stops, wildlife, anything about the park. We already agreed with you, like we do with any other guests, about what stops our driver will take you to. That's all our driver needs to do. BECAUSE IT IS A SIMPLE TAXI SERVICE.
It is really not our problem how much ATM charge you had to pay. You were clearly instructed to have cash with you. Thailand hasn't come up to a stage where taxis are equipped with card readers. Sorry for "falling behind" in technicalities compared to whatever country you are from.

Very good service in terms of:
1. Replying messages and corresponding on the planning. I contacted Thai National Parks around 1 month before my trip, and they always reply to me in a very timely and helpful manner.
2. Punctuality. Driver on the day was already ready at 4.30AM when I left my hotel for Doi Inthanon.
3. The website system itself. I really like this portal they have to accurately display the trip planning, payment, and messages. It's very systematic and easy to use, and goes through email as well, so we don't have to create an account or username on the website.
Thank you very much Thai National Parks on an amazing trip to Doi Inthanon. I went on a completely solo trip and was very happy I found them through Google. Please keep up the great service.

Very friendly and nice driver. Piak was helpful and allowed us to adapt the itinerary a little bit to our preferences and our children's needs.
Awesome tour of the park!

Your day trip to Doi Inthanon National Park was wonderful. Our driver, Jimmi, was on time (actually a bit early) to pick us up at our hotel. He is a very nice man, a safe driver and he made sure we experienced everything we had on our list and then some! We do not speak Thai and his English was limited but we communicated just fine.

Bank arrived on time. He is a good driver and very polite. He followed our itinerary, dfopping us off and picking is up when we were ready to move on to the next location. I never felt rushed. The taxi sdrvice only wormed out slightly more expensive for 2 people and we were able to go where we wanted. Good communicatkon with the national parks sdrvice.

Our trip to Doi Inthanon was very memorable. The staff responded very quickly in my inquiries and our private taxi service is very good and and the price is good too! Tom -our driver- was very accomodating although he can't speak English that much but he still tried to communicate with us as me and my husband can speak Thai a little bit😁. He guided us to the trail and became our photographer too! Giving ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for the tour. Recommended for those you want to have a private tour to Doi Inthanon!

This is a pretty good service and if you want to visit the park makes it very easy without having to do the long drive there and back, so you can go in one day. Customisable and we had a nice driver with a comfortable car.
