This was a great tour. Everything went extremely smoothly getting in and out of Myanmar. Our guide spoke English very well, was very knowledgeable and could answer a wide range of questions about the people, history and culture.

A great tour which can experience three country (Thailand, Myanmar and Laos) in one day and not in a hurry. No visa is required to go to Myanmar but you need to make sure that your passport can re-entry Thailand.

An absolutely fantastic one day visit into Myanmar. The excellent and friendly guide arrived to pick us up promptly at 08:30 and we set off on an action packed 10 hour excursion. The guide was well informed, spoke very good English and took time to introduce this new country to us as first time visitors. Thank you Green Trails Thailand.

This tour was fantastic. Tony our guide was extremely knowledgable, spoke very clear English and was really enthusiastic about making sure we saw as much as possible. I was slightly nervous about the tour because I could only find it on Viator and there were only 14ish reviews, but all were good. I am glad I took the leap and booked anyway. Since we went on a Monday, the opium museum that is normally a part of the tour was closed this is stated in the description, so we went to a smaller museum and then Tony took us in a boat to a market in Laos. The market in Laos is very touristy and does not really give a good example of Laos culture, but it was fun to be in 3 countries on one day, nonetheless. I highly recommend this tour.

My friends and I had a wonderful time on our day trip to Myanmar and the Golden Triangle! We LOVED stopped at the tea plantation in Chiang Rai-- wow! It was beautiful and the tea and snack that we had were delicious. Our guide, I'm not sure how to spell his name but we pronounced it like Chucky he spoke great English and he was very knowledgeable about everything we did on our tour. Tip: Don't forget your immigration card when you bring your passport to cross the border into Myanmar- you will need that. We loved the food, the temples in Myanmar, the shopping, and the views were beautiful in the Golden Triangle. Our guide was great with photos and everything. Opium museum wasn't my favorite--- but I'm not really big into museums. I would highly recommend this private tour!!

Fun to cross the border into Myanmar and see the Golden Triangle! Really enjoyed our guide Tony, who was super informative and friendly. My favorite part was probably the visit to the long-neck women and other tribes. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. Can be muddy and a bit of uneven terrain.

This tour was fantastic!! It was myself, my partner and two friends and we all had an excellent time with our private tour guide! Tony was excellent and it was sad leaving him at the end of the day!
The visit to the Karen tribe was fantastic and not something we'd have been able to see if we didn't take the tour! The visit into Myanmar was great too - seeing all the beautiful temples!
If you do one tour in your time in Chiang Rai - make it this tour!
