I was a bit of a last minute booking so could only book for 2 weeks. However, Diana was helpful with all details of my trips. Her English is fantastic She even emailed us ideas for the rest of stay with detailed instructions. Our local guide Lisa was one of the best tour guides I've ever had in any location. She truly cares about your experience with her smart, super knowledgeable, funny, and tough! She's a trained tour guide :) Dive at Racha Yai and Racha Noi is highly recommended! I wish we could have had longer in the water only because it was so enjoyable.
Couldn’t be satisfied with this tour. I will surely go back for more. 1.) The price is higher than at other companies and I was a bit sceptic. But then you realize that every Baht was worth of it. The overall experience is really in the first place there. 2.) Many companies offering tours are claiming that they tailor-made but actually just the combination of regular day tours. UME Travel offer really flexible tour. We don’t want start too early in the morning and they did it. My guide Sam started the day from around 11 am. If you go with them, you can follow your heart. 3.) You arrange everything online. Read the itinerary, book, pay with a card/Paypal and wait for the private car to come in the morning. 4.) Food is really great (and in big amounts), and very local. 5.) They also take pictures for you with their camera and the overall experience is really the best. If I would take other Southeast Asia tour, I would choose this one!
We were 2 couples who wanted to book a tour in UME Travel. We asked the tour guide Pheobe just one week before and she organized everything in a very short time.
The whole team is very knowledgeable about the destination and they love to entertain. Our tour guide was Monchai and he is just awesome. The crew wants you to have the best experience and they are willing to capture great memorable shots for you! Would happily recommend this trip as one of the best we have taken on our trip.
I have taken two trips with UME travels till now. The former was Vietnam. We felt safe in their hands. We had a few days of incessant rain, so we couldn’t go out. They changed the itinerary so that we don’t miss out on anything. All transportation was with a comfortable car including an infant car seat which was very convenient for us traveling with a 20 month old child.
Monchai was just a brilliant tour guide and we learned a lot . The drivers were really friendly and always on time . Breakfast and lunch was of an outstanding quality .
Aileen was incredibly responsive to my initial email contact and quickly understood our needs and organised the schedule around us. Her English was fantastic and she has a wonderful personality. Everything was very well organised and went to plan. I would highly recommend him if you are planning a trip in the southeast Asia area.
We contacted Diana based on a friend's recommendation as we were looking for a tailor-made tour for our whistle stop 8 days in Thailand. We were also traveling with our 3yr old so a private tour was even more important. Everything was organized perfectly. Our guide Monchai was knowledgable, helpfull, likable, reliable and very cooperative.
The service was perfect and exceeded my expectations. Lisa was a fantastic guide with very good knowledge of history and culture. Jack, our driver, was very friendly as well. The minivan was clean and well appointed.
Our travel advisor Aileen was responsive via email when I was arranging the tour with her and was helpful in arranging for a tailor-made itinerary.
If you go to Thailand, ask for Phoebe! She made me feel I’m in a friend hand and not as a business deal. The hotel was first class with beautiful landscaping and convenient transportation.
The first thing when I back home is writing this review on UME travel. I feel lucky to find so excellent team online, that’s secure for payment. And even I can cancel the payment when I have something import to do. So I made 2nd payment for my family tour. This is the first time to visit Thailand, we all in surprised mood. The elephants were free, roaming around us. My toddler screamed in joy when an elephant tapped her head with its trunk. The elephants are very friendly too. We only see this from the TV before. That’s so amazing. The hotel we stay is not so noisy, it is clean and tidy, map provided inside for our free time. On the day we leave, the fight was delay, thanks to the UME telling us, so we have extra time to feel the breath of Thailand. Thanks for our advisor Kenny so much, for the considerate service. And thanks for the energetic team UME, I hope they will lead us to further and interesting places next time.
