Re:         Thailand Experience

We have just completed our Thailand adventure and what we consider one of the best trips in all our travels.  This is thanks in large part to Diana Bonar at Bee Kalt Travel, Wanna Tours and our exemplary guide, Tanit  Montientong (Nid).

From the moment Nid met us at the airport in Bangkok on through our travels to Chiangrai to Chiangmai everything was well done and far exceeded our expectations.  

The itinerary couldn’t have been better with both variety and flexibility.  Each day was an adventure and one day better than the next from the glitter of the Grand Palace to stepping back in time with the hill tribes in the north.

But it was the personalization and flexibility to go behind the scenes and see how the people live and work that we enjoyed most.   We loved eating in “neighborhood” restaurants that we never would have found on our own or stopping in the countryside to meet a Thai family at work.  Even our elephant ride was a special, personal experience just for us as we watched busloads of tourists unload at the other elephant sites.  We felt like we had seen an authentic, insider’s view of Thailand rather than the typical tourist approach.

The accommodations were excellent with no surprises. We especially liked the Ramadan Hotel in the old city in Chiangmai. It was like an oasis in a bustling city with service and surroundings that took you to a time long past.

But it was our guide, Nid, who really made the trip.  Nid was not only punctual, professional, and extremely conscientious, he was very likable and easy to be around.  He was amazingly knowledgeable about Thailand and its people and shared insights that only a true Thai would know.  He used the itinerary only as a roadmap and was ready to seize any new opportunity that might present itself.  He made everything easy for us and turned our trip into a true adventure.  We can’t say enough about Nid.

Our Thailand trip is one we won’t soon forget.   Thank you for all that you did to make it happen.

Sincerely,

On behalf of our family I am so happy to be able to report back to you about our trip to Thailand. Firstly let me just say how professional your company is and what a pleasure it was setting everything up with you. Secondly – Jay our tour guide was absolutely amazing. Not only is she professional and hugely knowledgeable, she is approachable, friendly and always so aware of our every need. It was such a pleasure to be in her company and she made the trip to Bangkok so very worthwhile.

Please pass our best wishes onto her and let her know that the children thought that Bangkok was the most interesting part of the trip.

Thanks David and Wanna Tours but especially thanks to Jay.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you all.

Many thanks

Yesterday's travels went smoothly and we are comfortably situated by our pool, battling between doing nothing or enjoying a beach activity. We love our villa--it is private, beautifully appointed and with all the amenities one could ask for. Thanks for your help with selecting our last R&R retreat.

We cannot sing enough praises for Nok. As we discussed, travel and touring is a service oriented business. Nok shaped our lasting impressions of your country, it's culture and the hospitality of the Thai people. Kudos to you, Wanna and your entire team for making our 33rd wedding anniversary a most memorable journey.

We hope some day to have the pleasure of showing you our beautiful Capitol and surrounding environs. Many thanks again for your patience and time invested in overseeing and arranging our travels.

Thank you so much for taking excellent care of my client, Ms. Berylann Strada. Please see her email to me below. It’s so important, especially when it’s a single woman traveler that they have a great experience and Wanna Tours and your guide Sam made sure of that. My husband spent some time last year in Pattaya and had a wonderful time.

 

Hi Barbara,

I’m home and settling back in to "normal" life. Dealing with jet-lag, of course. Just wanted to thank you for all your work in getting my northern Thailand trip arranged. Everything worked out perfectly, and I was delighted with the experience. Hotels were heavenly, the itinerary and all the sights/activities were memorable, and Sam, my guide, was an absolute gem.

I enjoyed saying hello to his boss (I think his name was David?) one day by phone. He said to be sure to give you his regards. I could easily have stayed longer - it’s a fascinating part of Thailand, and I learned so much about the history, culture, religion, politics, tribal issues, etc. Loved the food throughout my entire trip, by the way.

I could eat Asian food indefinitely! Brought back lots of purchases - silk, woven textiles, embroidery, carvings, jewelry. So I hope I helped all the local economies as well!

Thanks again for all your help.

Regards,

Berylann
