We enjoyed the tour a lot. It was very informative, we got to interesting spots and learned about the Lanna kingdom, about the history of Chiang Mai and Thailand and about buddhism. All the information was very interesting. Pailin was super nice and kind, very informative and you can see she knows A LOT!!! Which is very impressive and means a lot. The only thing i could say is that i believe she should talk in a bit more organized and clear way, so everybody will get to follow her things and actually learn. I liked it a lot. Thank you Pailin!!

Pailin was so knowledgeable and funny. She shared so much about Thai history and culture, as well as Buddhism ideas. Just keep in mind you should bring at least 80 baht for temple entrance and taxi fee. And a little more for something yummy to eat in Chinatown 😉

We had a very enjoyable morning with Pailin today! Great communication via the GuruWalk messaging system to confirm and reconfirm the meeting time and place. She was very professional and at the same time engaging and passionate. A walking tour with her was a great way to learn about the history of Thailand, Chiang Mai and Buddhism. She obviously doesn’t have time to go into great depth on every topic she talks about but she gives you just enough information to pique your interest so that you can delve deeper if you later choose to on your own. Thank you again Pailin!

All the walking tours I have done in my life were tip-based according to how you enjoyed the tour. I felt harassed when she asked us for the money even before we could hand it to her. It felt wrong of her to ask for more. The tour was not incredible. It was 1 hour extra than what was advertised. We had to pay for temple and for a taxi (it did not seem like we were given a choice). Most of the information was very confusing to me also. She was very nice (until the end when she asked for more and more, with a minimal amount (when it is supposed to be tip based))
