Mai is a Chiang Mai local and a great guide. She is super knowledgeable, even though she only joined Guruwalk in June 2023, she has had many years of experience touring and guiding. Mai answered all of our questions and gave us a lot of interesting information, her English is excellent! The tour was very interesting learning about Buddhist practises and the local temples and finishing at a small local market. Definitely recommend Mai and her tour!

Great tour with Mai. She's obviously an experimented tour guide, and explained a lot about Thailandia, Chiang Mai and Buddhism. Always open and ready to answer any question about their culture and day to day. Also really good English. The tour was interesting, well structure and easy to follow. I definitely recommend her!
