Our Customer Reviews
We took the 5 day Yi Peng Festival your in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It was an amazing experience. We had two tour guides who were absolutely phenomenal. They answered all the questions we had and were always on time. It was a truly once in a lifetime trip and I would definitely recommend using them. I worked with Albee at Asia Highlights and she was very prompt with her responses. We especially loved the half day elephant tour. - Blanca Hernandez
