Day 1 - Arrive in Bangkok
สวัสดีค่ะ Sawasdee ka！Welcome to Thailand! On arrival in Bangkok, your private guide will be ready to welcome you at the arrival hall with our warm welcome kits. You will be transferred to your hotel with a private car and driver. Your guide will help you with luggage and hotel check-in and ensure your arrival is worry-free.
The rest of the day is arranged on your own. You may need some time to relax and recover from the long-distance flight or possibly from jet-lag. If you feel like going for a walk and checking out places nearby, feel free to ask your guide for recommendations for good dining or places to see.
Day 2 - Good Morning Bangkok！
Depart early morning for a 2-hour drive to the 100-year-old Damnoen Saduak Floating Market located 100 km (62 mi) from Bangkok, one of Thailand’s most famous attractions. Day-in and day-out from about 8 am to about 11 am, the Floating Market is routinely crowded with hundreds of vendors and purchasers floating in their small rowing boats selling and buying or exchanging their goods. You will have a chance to take a ride on a long tail boat to get the real sense of a floating village. After the long tail boat cruise around the village, you will stop at a transit point where you can choose to further explore the floating market by a 4-seat boat (at your own expense) or stroll around by the river's banks.
After having lunch, you will return to Bangkok, and you will visit Wat Pho, which is one of Bangkok’s oldest and largest temples. Wat Pho was built by King Rama I about 200 years ago and houses the gigantic, gold-plated Reclining Buddha image. This unique image is 49 meters long and 12 meters high with beautifully inlaid mother-of-pearl soles. Your last stop is The Royal Grand Palace, the nation's landmark and the most revered royal monument. You will see the Palace, which is used for many different occasions, and you will see The Coronation Hall, the Funeral Hall, the Royal Guest House, and the mysterious, famous Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew), the most revered Buddha image in Thailand. Then return to the hotel.
Wear something light and long when you visit palaces or temples. You'll need to wear pants or a dress/skirt that extends well past your knees, and a top that fully covers your shoulders. If you don't, the Grand Palace does offer clothes rental service in which you can borrow some stylish trousers and/or tops for a refundable 200 baht deposit from an office near the entrance. Hang onto your claim ticket, however, as you will need it to get that deposit back.
Day 3 - UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ayutthaya
Today you will head to Ayutthaya History Park, one of the UNESCO World Heritage list of Thailand. On the way to Ayutthaya, you will visit the Bang-Pa-In Summer Palace, located 60 kilometers north of Bangkok, an impressive architectural blend of East and West dating back to the 17th century.
Continue to Ayutthaya, which was the capital of the Thai Kingdom for 417 years. The city was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong and in 1767 it was destroyed by the Burmese army. Stroll around the ruins of several ancient temples including Wat Phra Si Sanphet, a former royal temple during Ayutthaya's days of glory; Wat Mahathat, undoubtedly the landmark and most photographed objects of Ayutthaya, where the roots of a tree surround the head of a stone Buddha image; and if time allows, Wat Chai Wattanaram, a perfect example of Khmer architectural influence. These temples record the prosperity and decline of ancient Thailand. During the visit, your guide will take you to sample a notable local snack – Roti Sai Mai which is also referred to as 'Sweet Angel Hair'.
Later, board a luxury boat and enjoy a Thai buffet lunch whilst cruising back to Bangkok. Witness the daily life of the river’s inhabitants and watch the scenery change from rural to cosmopolitan. On arrival at the pier, transfer back to your hotel.
Day 4 - Fly to Chiang Rai
Today you will fly to Chiang Rai. On arrival, please pick up your luggage and follow the walking path to the exit. After a short walk, you will find your private guide waiting for you near the exit with your name sign. Your guide will accompany you for your hotel check-in, the afternoon is free at your leisure.
Day 5 - Visit Golden Triangle and Opium Museum, Cross Mae Kong River to Visit Border of Laos
This morning, you will visit the Golden Triangle, which renowned as the center of the opium trade in the latter half of the 20th century. From a hilltop viewpoint, marvel at the splendor of the mighty Mekong as it joins the Ruak River forming the actual "Triangle" between Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand. The Opium Museum near the viewpoint of the golden triangle was built to educate people about the dangers of the drug through an entertaining exhibition that traces the history of opium from its first use 5,000 years ago to current issues of drug abuse and addiction. Many publications regard it as one of the best museums in Thailand.
Chiang Rai's close proximity to Laos makes it easy to visit this mysterious country. You will cross the Mae Kong River into Laos to witness local village life. You can walk around the local market where you will have free time to browse and perhaps pick up a few bargains. Return to the Thai side of the Mae Kong River for lunch with river view before leaving for the Doi Tung Royal Palace and Garden (Mae Fah Luang Garden)，Doi Tung was once a secluded area in the heart of the Golden Triangle-a leading region of illicit world opium production. The watershed area was denuded by slash and burn cultivation, and further accelerated by opium growing. After the Princess Mother's first visit to Doi Tung, She announced: "I will reforest Doi Tung".The Princess Mother decided to improve the conditions of Doi Tung, socially, economically, and environmentally. She demonstrated her commitment by building her home in Doi Tung, which is what we called Mae Fah Luang Garden.
Day 6 - Transfer to Chiang Mai and Visit White Temple, Black House and Blue House
After breakfast, we will head to Chiang Mai today! On the way, we will visit Rong Suea Ten or the ‘The Blue Temple’ which was built by the student of Mr. Chalermchai Kositpipat who built The famous White Temple. The outside is gorgeous, but the inside is even more spectacular with beautiful paintings and a huge white Buddha in the center. Your second stop is the ‘Black House’, known as ‘Baan Dam’ in Thai. Baan Dam is Thawan Duchanee’s artful portrayal of hell. The opaque decor and dead animals adorning each room make Duchanee’s estate the complete opposite of the White Temple, the glimpse of heaven designed by his teacher Chalermchai Kositpipat. Although off the beaten track, the Black House is not something to be overlooked. Then continue to Wat Rong Khun or ‘the White Temple’, blending traditional Buddhist art with contemporary themes. Followed by a visit to hot spring for relaxation. Late afternoon, we will arrive at Chiang Mai and free at your leisure.
Chiang Mai is a shopping paradise, with its famous arts and crafts. Nothing beats shopping for a bargain more than in the famous Chiang Mai Night Bazaar. The Night Bazaar, on the east side of the old walled city, is approximately 1km long. This evening, you can explore the night bazaar and find all special handicrafts and souvenirs you need along the street, plus a heap of mobile food street stalls.

I took part in the Thailand tour as I longed for it long ago. And this trip turned out to be perfect to me, same as what I dream of. Every activity was well-arranged so we can fully focus on enjoying myself. Our tour guide was responsible, always tried to help us as much as he can, making this trip worry-free.
The design of this itinerary is very perfect. This itinerary gave me lots of free time to let me discovery the beauty of Thailand. I love this arrangement very much.
The 14- day Thailand trip was genuinely one of the best experiences of my life! Every location was stunning with so many activities available. My awesome leaders made the trip incredible and stress-free. I cannot wait to go on another UME trip!
I didn't know what to expect in this trip because I've never been on a trip like this before. I can surely say that this a trip worth going to. Everybody is so friendly, the guides are always willing to participate in any activities we need.
UME Travel met all my fantasy in the journey. I didn’t need to care everything because my designer has organized the itinerary well for me. This Thailand travel was perfect! Highly recommends to you!
The trip was incredible, better than I expected!
It was an amazing experience! I truly made lifelong friends in this group, including the guides. Everything was so laid back and easy going and we had tons of freedom to choose what we wanted to do and when. We got to experience so much of what Thailand has to offer. My only regret is not staying longer!
The trip was fantastic! Ben and Carter were exceptional guides who went above and beyond for our team. The trip exceeded my expectations because of the extended stays in each destination. This really gave me a chance to explore the culture and see everything in each location. Also, Ben and Carter were awesome at establishing a dynamic atmosphere that had all of us begging for a second Thailand trip!
Eva is such a lovely, helpful person. In so glad she got to work with ume. I feel like she really understood us and knew exactly how to work with us. I would love to have her as my guide anyday
The trip was amazing I loved all the places we traveled to. The hotels was good but not really 5 star. We had to do a lot of traveling some days and I would have preferred to have done long travel days at night time so we wouldn't miss out on enjoying the day. But overall I had an amazing time!
This trip was such a great experience. It was my first time travelling alone and I would definitely do it again! It helped me get out of my comfort zone and everything was very accessible which made things easy and fun! Everything was also organized which was great! Ben and carter, my guide and driver, did an amazing job! I enjoyed myself immensely!
Guides were amazing! And it was a trip of a life time! Highly highly recommended!
Overall an amazing trip. Eva and Phoebe showed expertise and they helped to make my trip smooth and simple.
There are not enough words to describe how much I loved being on this trip with such amazing people. Eva made this trip that much more enjoyable. Never a dull moment with her. Saying goodbye was the worst part of the trip.
My experience with UME Travel was amazing! So much so that when I finished my first trip I booked a second one so that I could keep the good times rolling. It wouldn't have been what it was if it wasn't for the amazing guides, they made sure we always had a rad time everywhere we went. The locals that they introduced us to elevated the experience to a different level that I'm so greatful for. The accommodation was the perfect mix for adventure and relaxing. I would recommend a ume trip to anyone and everyone who's looking to have the time of their life that they'll never forget!
The 13 day Thailand trip was a great way to see a few countries in a short amount of time! Travel days were usually different modes of transportation which was a nice change and all the accommodations were everything we needed and more. There are lots of options for activities but you can really do as much or as little as you'd like! Great views and super fun guides. Would highly recommend this or any other Ume travel trip!
Had an amazing time travelling to Thailand. Very knowledgeable tour guides and awesome accommodation and food. There was something to do everyday and there were many optional activities to choose from. I would highly recommend UME travel to anyone that's looking for a fun and affordable tour!
UME travel is a well organised your that gives you an ausome experience of food and culture. Your guides are cool as well
UME Travel 14-day Thailand trip was amazing for such an short period of time. Everything from temples, sights, activities, and social aspects made this trip just a pleasure to be on.
The trip was fantastic! The amount of days that we spent in each place was a good amount. I loved Chiang Mai, so personally I would have liked to spend a few more days there. The transportation to each place was great. Loved the slow boat to the border. What a great way to travel. The accommodations were pretty good throughout the tour. The transportation was good as well. The guides were amazing! So bubbly and enthusiastic. They are great at Thailand's history and culture!
I did't know what to expect from the trip. I went in with open eyes and ready to experience new things. The trip was really excellent. It was well organized.
My trip with UME travel was amazing! It was so much fun to be able to wake up everyday and go on an adventure trying something new. Our guides were fantastic and made everything run smoothly, which was great.
First off, let me start by saying how incredible ume travel really is. The tours they set up and the guides they provide for the trips really do make the experience as easy as possible and allows you to feel free to just enjoy yourself without having to worry about a thing! That being said, there is one leader that really stood out to me when I toured with him. James O'Brien really made an impact on me and our entire group as we travelled through Thailand. James was always upbeat and cracking jokes. He was always encouraging us to try new things and shared his past experiences. Despite being a guide and always surpassing his duties by keeping everything running smoothly and us having a good time. He is an exceptional tour guide and it would be a great privilege to tour with him again!
UME Travel is a great tailor-made travel company! I have no complaints and I will definitely be booking more tours with them!
Dave and Ben were amazing tour guides, they were really friendly and always willing to help out (I was having issues with my flight back) and they made sure I had everything sorted. Alex and Amanda were also really good to have on board! Alex kept the tour really interesting by telling us info and fun facts about the temples! Wish I could have stayed on Thailand longer - would rate 10/10 :D
Just finished an 14 day tour through Thailand. This is my first time to Thailand and UME Travel advisor helps me making the whole travel. Thank you for your hard work and heartfelt advice! I had so much fun and enjoyed every second of it. Had two tour guides Dave and Ben both amazing at what they do and I love them so much. Would go on a tour again with them in a heartbeat. Couldnt have asked for a better time or better experiences
We had a great time with UME tours. Transfer from airport as well as pickup from airport was prompt. A fantastic full day tour. Just my husband and I so a private trip. My highlight was the long boat ride to the temple on a little island. Lots of laughs on the boat with huge waves! It was a very memorable trip for the entire family.
For a booking agency they offer a range of tours at a good price. The tours were awesome with some awesome (vegetarian)food. The pickup vehicle almost always arrived before time and waited for us and tours were properly charted out. A lot of tour choices were made available to suit our interests and convenience. A great thank you to all and everyone from UME travel for making my trip a memorable one for me.
I contacted this tour agent regarding to see Siam Niramit in Bangkok as well as plans to have a cave tour from Phuket Krabi. The owner provides superb response times to questions. Eva has a wide variety of tours to choose from. Her tours are MUCH pricier than other company. Although we have planned to book it when we have arrived there, but when traveling with a large family paying cash is not practical or safe. For these reasons we opted to go with UME and saved hundreds of dollars by doing so.
We went out on 15 Aug. and it was raining but was still our enjoyable days in Bangkok and when we go to Chiang Mai, it is sunny! the staff there were helpful! we had a white river rafting adventure with Elephant trekking and ATV. The elephant ride was a rip-off. and we were absolutely hungry when we finish the whole tour and departure from Phuket and the flight was late, although it was not their obligation to get us some food on the way, they had help us on filling our stomachs. Its an awesome trip we had! After we have arrived at home. They sent us email to ask our feeling and feedback. Great! is what I want to say!
My family enjoyed the experience of doing the island hoping in Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi, the LUNCH was very comfortable. In the afternoon it was raining and the speed boat was sooo fast but thank you to the professional boat driver/captain we enjoyed the bumpy ride. We were never rushed on our tour and had a good time at every island that we visited. In short UME tour are very professional, warm and great value for your buck. I recommend to get the speedboat tour. The pick up to the trip was very prompt with the minivan.
Our tour guide Eliza in Bangkok and Ayutthaya was fantastic and was very knowledgeable! If you are interested in learning about history and Buddhism, he is your best bet. We also went to an elephant sanctuary, traditional Thai handicraft factory & Damnoen Saduak floating market. The cars was very good and comfortable and the guys very pontual. It takes only us so we can go at any time as we like. They took us to very taste and typical restaurants! Very organized. Satisfied with their service.
I would definitely recommend UME to each and everyone! They are reliable, efficient and provide amazing tours! We are a family of 4 adults and 2 children and booked a 14-day tour a couple of months in advance and the correspondence was excellent, you may wait for a few days to get an answer or response but everything was arranged prior to arriving. Apart from the itineraries I made, our guide took us to some 'off the beaten path' places which are impossible to find if I wasn't with him.
I had 1 wonderful tour with ume travel and it was a great experience! We are a vegan vegetarian family, so on the trip she ensured that we ate right and at the right places.
Read great reviews about UME so we decided to book our Bangkok temple tour, Elephant trekking and Phi Phi tour with them. The agent arranged us all the best things, such as tour guide, nice and comfort vehicle. Especially i've been falling in love with awesome places they took us to. Happy with the tour itinerary prepared at short notice; prompt responses to our email inquiries; helpful and courteous management and staff; smooth driver knowledgeable and accommodating tour guide.
We were very happy with the service rendered from ume travel, beginning from Eva, who we liaised with via email. She was prompt in her replies, and knows what special tours to customise according to your wants. I visited Phi Phi island recently in May 16 with my family while on a vacation to Thailand. We took another Thailand tour booked through umetravel. It is much better than before! We pick up from hotel in morning and get by van to the pier on the speed boat with close to 30-35 visitors on the trip to Phi Phi Island. we had opportunity was a trip amazing view which we enjoyed thoroughly. We do some snorkeling and saw corals and many colorful fishes.
It has been an unforgettable trip ever. We came to Chiang Mai for business trip with a small group. We found uemtravel on the Website. We asked this agent to operate meeting group with visiting nice attractions in Chiang Mai for us. It has been beautifully worked and smooth. On the trip we got free fruits, free water. Our guide was very young but despite on his age he got huge knowledge of all visited attractions and he was really funny :) ume know all what we need as a little group. Water and flowers (for Buddha) were provided which was unexpected. Every pick up and drop was on time. The travel agents and pick up drivers were friendly.
We did the Floating Market, Railway Market, the Palace and other Bangkok Temple. On our way in, I left my phone on the airplane in Bangkok. He had the driver drop us off at the mall on our way back to the hotel so that I could replace my phone. He ended up going in with us and stayed there for almost 3 hours until we were finished. I truly feel honored to have met such and amazing human being. As to our beach tour, I will give four stars for the tour company itself. Great staff, nice speed boat. The main guide on our boat was great, showing us the good spots to snorkel.
I had pre-booked the tour by emailing UME a couple days before I arrived in Bangkok. She was very responsive to emails, and was happy to clarify any questions. He was happy to answer any of my questions, and was really proactive with taking pictures throughout the activities. Our tour guide was excellent and she took great care in explaining everything to us, and our driver was great too, he made sure we always had water and cold wet wipes throughout the trip.
We booked this tour in advance. The booking contact was very friendly and responsive. There were no issues with pre-paying the deposit through PayPal and we had no concerns about it either due to the fact that other members reported a good experience. We were not disappointed either. We felt comfortable at the hotel they provided. In additional, they provided a wonderful trip to Bangkok & Chiang Mai. I firmly believe that you will not regret if you choose ume travel.
We was booked 14 days for our family. Everything was professionally organized, pick up on-time and smooth tour program. Because our visit time is happened to be the funeral of the King of Thailand, our tour guide Sam was absolutely fabulous and gave us extra special attention and gave us such great insights into the Thai culture, people and Temples. He also knows the perfect spots for images for social media posters like myself and offered to take many photos of us. Great experience! Would recommend.
I booked the tour through internet with Pheobe since many tourists recommended this agent. When I arrived in Bangkok Mr Sam picked us from Hotel. Everything worked perfectly as we planed. Mr Sam is very knowledgeable, patient, helpful and professional. He speaks good English and Thai. Sam is so kind to take care of my father who is a 81 year old senior. Each day after the tour he takes us to the hotel. During the tour he always asks us if you want to take a picture here ? It was an awesome 14-day tour!
I booked a 14-day Thailand tour through UME Travel. Our local guide Sam was wonderful. His knowledge of Bangkok was not only extensive but he put his own personality and experiences into it. The trip was very organized and thorough.
Our tour guide was the funniest and the nicest. He show me all must-see and leave us enough time. We never miss any good spot for photos. This agent provides excellent services. The Grand Palace was one of many beautiful Temples we visited while in Thailand. My money is well spent. I highly recommend them.
After reading a lot of reviews I decided to book with umetravel. Our local guide was Nichapa. She is a fun and enthusiastic guide sharing her views on a great city. She took us to a great little place for lunch and we were transported round in a new air conditioned car which was ready to set for next destination each time we got back in. You will enjoy and feel relaxed with ume travel. i can honestly say it was worth every penny we paid.
We booked this tour before leaving home. Email and telephone communications were pretty good. Eva has specially tailored our itinerary to match with our schedule and gave us one of the best tour guide we had. .We had a great tour loads of fun /food and local transport, which is amazing . I couldn't imagine the tour going any smoother. Thank you!!!
We had our ume travel tour with Sam, who was gracious, interesting, and incredibly informative. We visited Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket…ect.. All in all, a wonderful tour & experience.
It was great. The car was very comfortable and the driver spoke good english and told us some interesting information on the way and gave us great history lessons. You do take time out to rest and relax during the day so you are not going at break neck speed. The pace is actually quite reasonable.
My partner and I took this tour. We had Eva as our advisor. She was friendly and arranged everything to our requests via email. Everything was settled quickly and smoothly before our family trip to Thailand. The tour was excellent and very enjoyable. I can recommend this tour to any body, well organized .
The last time my husband and I visited Bangkok, it was so crowded and hectic that it was difficult to appreciate the art & buildings of these historic sites. So, when our private tour guide in during our visit to Thailand last March recommended UME Travel, we decided to book their early access tour on this visit with two of our grandchildren. Our guide, Tarni, picked us up at our hotel at the appointed time and we enjoyed the the early visit. Don’t think twice! Book this tour if you want to learn and explore Thailand!
We only had 6 days but could have spent 10 days with UME! We had a great tour and Nicha was a great driver. Very well experienced to cross throughout the village roads. Elephant was a very great experience as well.
Diana was a good travel advisor. We only had a rough idea and based on his recommendations we finalised all places to visit. She then planned the route accordingly. We had a great time! Restaurants she proposed were all very good. She was also very quick in responding to my emails. Very smooth and professional service. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a hassle free trip. All in all, there staff were wonderful; adjusting the itinerary to serve our interests and needs. I highly recommend their services.
UME Travel was easy to schedule with, professional, well-priced and reliable.
We loved our private tour of Thailand, and then a few days later in Singapore. Guides and drivers were knowledgeable, professional and lovable.
I booked a private tour of elephant sanctuary with my Grandmother in Jan. The tour exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it to all! All my emails to Diana before the trip were responded to very promptly. The tour itself was fantastic and our tour guide Indy provided such a wonderful day. Thank you UME Travel for making our day so special.
Nice hotel, professional guides and prompt reply. If I ever go to Thailand again you guys will be my first port of call to sort out my holiday. Well Done!!!!
Carrie was extremely accommodating from the beginning. When we accidentally mixed up our flight date she quickly updated our reservation and assured us there would be no issues. Although we still lose some money for our no show, while we did continue our tour and everything is well arranged. Would highly recommend this to anyone!
Good! Will recommend to our friends.
I travelled in June with my parents. We had Tarni, Indy and Mon as guides. Excellent! Our trip from Phuket to Phi Phi was a delight. Mon is very knowledgeable and helpful. We all liked the snorkeling and kayaking. She took great care of my mother on the trip. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. The trip was great and we could see all the landmarks. The car was very comfortable.
We only have 3 full days in the Thailand area and wanted to maximize our time. Followed the guides of our trip advisor, we decided to stay in Phuket. The round-way flight from and to Phuket is very cheap.
From start to finish this has really been an wonderful experience.
UME Travel was great with the children and could tailor things to suit their needs, especially when my young child wanted to see elephants. I’ll list down some good points that I appreciate: Tuk Tuk ride and a trip to elephant sanctuary. Phi Phi Ilsand and the Monkey beach. The food is also great. We can order what we wanted.
We were introduced to UME Travel when we were in the process of arrange the trip Thailand that we’ve been wanting to take for a long time. We contact UME and Don arranged the whole trip for us. He has been very helpful and we would highly recommend him and we enjoyed our trip very much. Now we all are looking forwards to our next adventure to Asia!
Diana listened to our requirements and came up with a holiday that we are extremely happy with; this included the quality of hotels and activities
The most unexpected situation was UME kept in close contact during our trip and was extremely helpful.
We spent 2 weeks in Thailand and we’ve had a great experience with UME Travel, ever since the beginning of our negotiation. They were flexible to adjust our wishes and everything went perfectly fine. Thanks!
UME Travel took care of all details and scheduled us for amazing excursions. They accommodated our desires and needs. If there was a specific excursion we wanted to do or hotel that we dreamed of staying at-they made it happen. We did spend a perfect holiday!
Jimmy was our fantastic guide in Bangkok and he took care of everything!
Working with Diana was very happy and easy. She is very professional and easygoing. The guides and drivers in Thailand were fantastic. Our guide Birdy is our good friend now.
We had only vague ideas about our 14-day trip to Thailand, but with the help of Carrie, we built up our itinerary including all the activities, transfers and accommodation. We got very enjoyable experience in Thailand.
I went with my 12-year old son to Thailand. UME Travel did an AMAZING job for us. They were quite helpful. All the guides, transfers, drivers, hotels and activities for me and my son were perfect. I’m so happy with my decision of organizing the trip through UME Travel. We got to see all of Thailand. My son had a great time on jungle zip line in Chiang Mai. Thank you!
The guides were profession, helpful and knowledgeable, the hotels were amazing in Thai style.
UME Travel matched every detail of the requirements and created a holiday for us in Thailand that we are extremely happy with.
Thank you Carrie! Everything went smoothly. I would recommend your company to anyone wanting to experience a variety of activities in Thailand.
Superb tour of Thailand! very well organization and the service of the guides were excellent. Highly recommended!
We have booked a tour of Thailand through Ume Travel. We’ve had a very good experience. They’ve been very accommodating and the flexibility of building an individualized tour for what we want
Carrie from UME Travel, who arranged our holiday tour to Thailand was friendly and professional. There were a number of amendments to the tour schedule we asked for, and Carrie was able to incorporate these changes professionally. Every time I had a question she would respond promptly and clearly.
My husband and I had an amazing time, with the tour guides, the hospitality from pick ups to visiting different places in Thailand. It was the first time we booked tour with UME Travel and I cannot help recommending them. Specifically, for their hospitality, friendly and time management. We will definitely book our second trip with them.
Great service from the start to the end. Diana Liu, our travel advisor was always there to help with any questions or issues we encountered. Excellent guides in each city, particularly Bangkok and Chiang Mai. We had a great time in Thailand! Thank you Diana!
They were extremely helpful in planning the trip. I changed my mind a lot and they just kept on adjusting the schedule until everything we satisfied with. They are just amazing and make our dream turn true!
We booked to tour Thailand. It was an amazing experience for us and exceeded our expectations. The tour guides are all friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the place they live in.
Overall, this was a great trip for its value and I can’t believe it went by so fast! Our family was from US. We had a blast everywhere we went. Sam, our tour guide was very accommodating and helpful at every step along the way. He really helped create a worry-free and comfortable environment and I’m thankful for his friendliness and local knowledge. Had a great time!
Really amazing experience and totally worth it. Never travelled to Asia before and was at ease with UME. Definitely recommend :)
The Thailand pacakges was amazing, couldn't have asked for a nicer tour and Kelly did a fantastic job coordinating everything! The itinerary has a good mix of cities and beach, which are timed perfectly when you need a bit of free time. The accommodation at each location was also very good, I particularly liked the cruising on river. I would definitely book another tour, such good value for money!
Accommodation and transport provided is excellent.
Sam is a legend, he is so enthusiastic & informative - nothing is ever too much of a problem for him to sort out! He is also has a good sense of humor.
Great tour with fantastic guide.
The whole experience was amazing, everything was well planned and ran smoothly. The guides were very informative and friendly. Our tour guide David was absolutely awesome and would recommend him to anyone. Very well done
The tour was very well organised and our guild K was excellent. We met some great people and had a great time. I would recommend this tour.
The trip definitely went over my expectations! It was an amazing experience and the guide really gave it a personal touch, so that we could experience Thailand more like a local, rather than a tourist.
Good tour lots included enjoyed
It was the best holiday l have had so far. Thank you everyone for making it possible.
The tour was well organized, and our tour director, David, was amazing! He really was calm, took care of everything but wasn't intrusive couldn't be better.
The trip to Thailand was so well organized, our guide was just wonderful,, Sam was kind, caring, and so helpful. His knowledge of the history of all the monuments was fantastic. Thank you
I had a lovely time in India thanks to our amazing tour guide!
I had the most wonderful holiday ever. I loved our guide Sam, he was very kind, very helpful, and really did a great job. My overall expireance was excellent.
We had a great time
Our guide, Sam, was absolutely amazing. He looked after us all so well, gave brilliant information at each of the landmarks on the tour and ensured that we got as much from the experience as possible. There is plenty of free time too - a very accessible tour both for experienced and less experienced travellers.
All hotels were great.
I enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was very good and informative.
Our tourguide put all his heart into the tour. Professional and excellent person.
All round great experience, highly recommend
Thoroughly enjoyed my Thailand tour with UME! The itinerary was great, fast paced, but I didn't feel like I'd missed anything on the way. the guides were excellent - very knowledgeable, helpful and good fun. Would definitely recommend both ume and this tour!
I would highly recommend this tour. Seven days is certainly not enough to see and experience this magnificent land but the itinerary was thoughtfully designed to include as much as possible yet provide ample personal time.
Just what we were looking for. Relaxed, yet thorough. Private tour was ideal. Guides were good, especially Sam (patient and informative). Nice to bond with lkocal peoples. We appreciated the flexibility, especially after flight delay and lost luggage. Highly recommend Carrie and her crew. We went places that we were unlikely to go on our own. We never booked a tour before as we like to travel independently, but this one fit our life style quite well. Kudos!
Most of the tour was great. The transportation in Bangkok was terrible but understandable. We really enjoyed the food and the sights we saw.
Best tour company!!! It was fantastic!!! Not touresty at all .You really felt like a local! Very well organized and knowledgeable guides. Great food, snacks and very fun! Lots of down time for yourself on beach!! I highly reccomend this company !!!
The tour was much more then expected. It was Excellent. All of our guides were great and showed us their undivided attention. It was a pleasure to deal with such a competent tour company. Any questions or concerns prior to the trip were answered by email in a timely manner. The food was excellent. I cannot thank you enough for a wonderful vacation.
Great tour! Will recommend it to my friends.
We truly enjoyed our trip, the architecture, wonderful food and good company. I really felt a private tour was so much easier to travel with and get into buildings and other places. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable.
Everything was great. The mix of events was terrific. Private tour style was good.
We were attracted by the interesting itinerary and it more than met our expectations, all very well organized. Personality and knowledge of the guides made the tours exciting and very enjoyable.
Tour was fantastic from start to finish with some of the best accommodation and food I’ve experienced on similar tours. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for an introduction to Thailand.
Sam is a great tour guide, positive, easy going and insightful. He always helpful.
Sam was a fantastic, enthusiastic and upbeat guide who overcame multiple challenges to keep our tour moving from point A to point B. If we were to travel in other ways we wouldnt have seen the points of interest Sam pointed out, or the secret spots in the cities I would have definitely missed.
Meals was exceptional, accommodations were great and we would like to thank Carrie for our fantastic tour arrangement. We enjoyed every minute, and can't wait to return !
The nights in Phuket. This is an experience i definitely wont forget!!
Really enjoyed the tour! Sam was very helpful especially with any issues (illness/injuries)
Couldn’t of asked for anything more, really personable and so helpful thought out our days in SE.
The itinerary was fantastic and great value. Our guide was organised and efficient, ensuring we were always on time and knew the plan for each individual day. 10/10 and will definitely travel to Asia again in the future :)
Fantastic tour guide - friendly, helpful and entertaining.
Our guide Simen was attentive to all our needs and very understanding as well as being really fun
