Just finished up a trip to Thailand and there are no words to describe how much I loved my UMW friends and this tour!! It was my first trip with my husband and definitely won't be my last. We married in 2017 while this time was much like our honeymoon. So our travel experts Alex advised us this tour. We spent our New Year’s Eve 2019 on Chatrium Hotel overlooking the river, good food - both Western and Asian style, really good selection of drinks - amazing firework display. Amazing river view, it was worth it. The other day, we went to a romantic bar. I cannot remember the name now but it was really a good one. We loved our experience in elephant park. Our initial plan was to visit elephant but we don't know anything about it before. Alex told us the elephant jungle sanctuary is a good choice. They don't offer elephant riding while it's a safe place for elephants. After finishing this experience of feeding, bathing, and sharing the whole day with this amazing creatures, I can say that it was beyond our expectations. We luckily found this lovely place. If i could give them a 6 star room rate then i would love to.

I joined the 9-day version of UME Tour in November 2018 with my husband. It was a great trip with great serve. We had very lovely local guides who gave us a small insight into the local life of Thailand. The hotel in Bangkok is pleasant and spacious. The best part was its location is near the river and have a good sight. It really is a sight to behold an afternoon tea while looking at the river is the best. The room was cleaned to a very high standard everyday. We like this hotel very much. Especially our guide in Bangkok who greeted me a happy birthday and a surprised birthday cake cutting at the end of the dinner for me. :-p A wonderful bedinning of our Thailand tirp! If i could give them a 6 star room rate then i would love to.

We flew almost 23 hours from Los Angeles. The experience of visiting this country is eye-opening and unlike anything else. I cannot recommend all of it enough and I think every day worth the price. Our tour had a 1 day Photography tour in Phuekt. Our local guide arranged everything perfectly and made sure that we got all the photos that we had wanted to - plus many more! Everyone worked so hard to make this an unforgettable experience. My private photographer’s knowledge and suggestions for each photographic experience is what made my relax down and make myself comfortable before the camera. I have travelled many times and this was the best yet. Definitely recommend this company and their Thailand tours! Can’t say enough good stuff! Nichapa, Carrie, Sam, Sern Thank u so much to u all and God bless

A truly unforgettable experience in Thailand. We had a wonderful hotel in Bangkok. Incredible views of the Chao Praya River and the city of Bangkok. After the day we arried, our guide brought us to a scenic restaurant which we can overlook the Chao Phraya River and the temple of dawn. Also like pattaya and Phuket. Heaven of beach and lots to do. Great experience well worth the money, cant wait to do it again to take in more of this very fascinating country.

If you are looking for an exceptional photography experience and leave some precise memory in your Thailand tour, this is it. A well organised, highly personalised travel itinerary with a personal guide that is actually your travel companion. When I travel for photography in Phuket, I want to get the best locations at the best times. We went out when sunset. If you are planning to take this tour, be prepared to prepare earlier, the best time was over in a twinkle. This is to ensure that we capture the last light on the beach. All the itinerary details are carefully planned and coordinated by our photographer and local guides which make the whole experience exceed our expectation. Thanks again for the very enjoyable trip, now the hard part, sorting out the 500+ photos and editing them.
