We really enjoyed the tour and Pat was a great guide and a very interesting person to converse with. The food was excellent...the best I had so far in Thailand. I am definitely recommending this to my family and friends.

In general, when traveling in Asia... I’ve never had problems eating where the locals eat or in their homes. I run into trouble nearly every time I’ve eaten at a big name hotel or other tourist spots. Avoid buffets!!!!
