I was recommended Asian Plus Travel by an Australian friend who has used them a few times. As I was travelling on my own I was keen to use a personal guide and have a bespoke tour. Well my guide, Bird (owner of Asian Plus Travel) could not have done more to make my holiday one of my most amazing and enjoyable holidays ever. His preparation and attention to detail was second to none. I was sent an itinerary well before I arrived so we could modify this if I wanted (which I did) He was a very knowledgable entertaining and friendly guide and someone who clearly cares about his clients and ensuring that they have the best experience possible. I was driven in a brand new Toyota car by Ben who was a very careful and safe driver and went out his way to help. Being local Bird knew the best places to eat (where the locals go) all of which were very inexpensive. I can’t give you a highlight of the trip as it was all so amazing. I think though the lasting feeling is now one of making new lasting friends and developing an understanding of the culture and people of Northern Thailand. Obviously a private bespoke tour is not the cheapest way to travel but I would highly recommend it as with Asian Plus Travel and Bird you get to see so much more, at your own pace and without being herded along like cattle in a large tour group so I the end it offers outstanding value for money and makes the whole experience so much more enriching.
