    I had the most amazing experience with ume travel! I was skeptical going into the tour because of the price, but would do it again in a heartbeat.

I fell in love with the country and I am DEFINITELY going to recommend ume travel to friends and family back home.

    I did the 7 days Thailand, land of smiles trip and I could not be more happy with the trip! We visited the most breathtaking spots and had a small, family like group.

    I must say this is one of the best experiences of my life. I really enjoyed Thailand. I booked a 7 Days Kanchanaburi, River Kwai & Ayutthaya Tour with UME travel and loved every minute of it. Seen so much in such little time, I would definitely consider a longer tour next time. Thai temples are amazing and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market was full of Thai special. Nice experience.

  • Selina

    Loved the tour. I can feel a bit like a local going through back alleys and seeing how people live their lives. Seeing Wat Arun at morning was amazing. Floating market was very interesting. Our guide was really nice.
