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.

Claire

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

Lynn

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.

SteffenWeiss

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.

Aleksander

We were going to go to Thailand for our 25th anniversary. Thanks to UME Travel and our travel advisor Carrie, we were able to make our dream a reality. I told Carrie of our interest in visiting Thailand, our budget and our dates of travel. She was always professional, knowledgeable and extremely patient with my questions and gave me suggestions. It was a true cooperation. And our anniversary was perfect and unforgettable.

Ethan

We were a group of 8 couples. The ladies couldn't stop talking about how much fun it was and how they enjoyed it. Everything was super easy to book and we received quick responses back from Diana when we had any questions or concerns about our booking prior to the trip. We didn’t want to walk too much so Diana recommend us Segway tour in Chiang Mai old city. Our guides Leo and the other staff were patient and helpful as we were learning to ride a Segway for the first time. The tour was fun and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our ride around the temples in Chiang Mai. We also attended the half moon party in Phuket. Good times with good friends! Great fun! 

Ryan

I had a wonderful time celebrating my girlfriend's birthday. The whole tour was marvelous and funny. The guide in Phuket is a very accommodating guy and made our tour extremely successful! We liked the photo shot. Our photographer was so nice and knew how to make us relaxed! The UME guys sent me all the photos when we got home. I will highly recommend choosing UME to all my friends. We cannot wait to visit again maybe our honeymoon!

Honoré

UME Travel is very well worth your time and money. The customer service was awesome before, during , and afterwards. Your guys made our anniversary amazing! Thanks!

Cathy

Highly recommend UME Travel and our travel advisor Carrie. Our group of 7 were in town for a bachelorette, we got very lucky because it’s the Thai New Year. Exciting although got wet through! The water battle was crazy while very safe with the arrangement of our guides We had a great play mix, stopped at great bars, had a nice tour of downtown. I would highly recommend this tour. It was one of the best things we did over the weekend and would do it again.....with CARRIE! Thank you for the memorable experience!!

Ohiyesa

We had the best time celebrating one of my friends 30th birthday this weekend! Phoebe made the experience 10x better because she was so fun and friendly. We deleted Chiang Mai and spend more time on Phuket and Phi Phi Island. We went to several awesome beaches. It was a wonderful experience we had a great time our driver was the best he made sure we where taken care of. Our guides showed us the points of interest along the way.

Jyotsana

Had a great time! Unfortunately our flight delayed so we couldn’t get to our hotel and the traffic that day’s bad as well.. but our guide Donna picked some fun places for us to stop at. The following activities were not affected. They also help us when we got compensate from travel insurance. After all, everyone in our group had a great time. Thanks!

Betsy

We have been on UME Travel in other countries and decided to go on one while visiting Thailand. It did not disappoint. Our previous travel advisor recommended her colleague who’s specific in Thailand to us. My husband & I booked the brunch cruise in celebration of our anniversary in Phi Phi. It was a lot of fun & a nice change of pace from going out to dinner at a restaurant. Everything was hot and fresh and refilled often.We floated on the sea and saw the sun fall slowly into the sea!

Damazo

We had an incredible tour with UME Travel and Diana. She was an exceptional travel advisor. The service was excellent. She went above and beyond to make us comfortable. Definitely will do again!

Remedios

Great experience I loved every bit of it! Family and friends had a wonderful time. The food was great! The hotel was nice and we changed some original hotels in Phuket to a more private beach and seaview room type. I hope this review was helpful as i found it quite hard picking the perfect company to explore the unique Thailand.

Kana

We all had such a great time! Our guides and drivers were so accommodating and made sure we all had a great time! Hotels were no smoking and either in car. wish we can do it again. :D 

Eris

My nieces and nephews planned a birthday party for me in Thailand and we all had an awesome time. The weather was beautiful and view is awesome!! We are definitely planning a party for next year! We book a suit room in Phuket and can spend our family time together.

Noura

Our experience couldn't have been better! Brought our honeymoon vacation on UME Travel for last month. Carrie was a great travel advisor - promptly, informative, professional. Private tour is a great way to see the city, our guide did a great job telling us about the history of the area and had great drink recommendations at the bar we stopped at. This was definitely different with the tour we have had before. More flexible and all fits our tastes.

Nikolaus

We were celebrating a friends 30th anniversary and had a great time. Our driver, guides was a great host! We have no hesitation to recommend UME Travel to all our family and friends who will be in for an memorable Thailand tour.

Solomon

A truly memorable experience, meticulously planned and fulfilled by UME Travel. Mrs. Diana and her operations team comprising of Ms. Nichat & Sern, the guide cum driver who made this trip such a joyful and a memorable one. Before going to this trip, some problems occur but she was always there to solve those problems instantly. She was 24x7 available for me. Our guide was patient, positive & proactive, not only in her approach to understand guest queries, but also was impeccable with her responses and ensuring that she had the answers in a timely manner. She provided us with many suggestions and advice on what to do with the remainder of our trip.

Abhay

We celebrated our silver wedding in August. Thank you so much for creating a great tour package and many thanks indeed for giving us such a personalized experience throughout the tour. We had a nice meal with a bottle of champagne on the beach. A unique local romantic restaurant. I also prepared a bunch of flowers on our hotel.

Firouz

We had a really fun tour in Thailand. Nightmarkets, temples, walking elephants, kayaking and snorkeling. Our guide in Bangkok was highly engaging and impressed us with his knowledge of the history of the ancient temples as well as local life. 9 days pass by remarkably quick and before you know it. The photo shotting was the highlight of our trip in Thailand and we also like the free days on beach. Highly recommended!

Finnish

Suman

I stated by trip from 22 July and booked best package from UME Travel . Over all trip is awesome. Diana helped us plan the trip and I must have had 30 emails with lots of questions which she answered promptly and thoroughly. We even had a last minute change where we needed to shift the entire trip by a few weeks and Diana was able to move all of our accommodations to meet our needs. Both hotel is very good and views from hotel is Awesome as well cab is very good. No smorking. Thawatchai very experienced guy. Show all place and always guide what to or not do.Very professionally and made us feel very welcome and happy about the trip as we were a little nervous.
