“From the initial contact with ATA, we noticed how carefully all details were managed. They submitted to us an itinerary with a day by day detailed description of what they suggested for us to do. We changed several visits and they accommodated without problems. We were sent a large package with instructions and tips about each country, the tickets for every internal flight, etc. Nothing was left undone.
We had very good guides at every stop, they would pick us up at the airports and every day at the hotels. The selections of the tours was superb and every hotel chosen was excellent. I can strongly recommend ATA for anybody interested in getting to know Indochina. It is a fantastic tour operator.

tour is the trek, which is completely brilliant! The friendships and bonds with people is something that will stay with me for a very long time. Waking up to views of the jungle with home cooked, proper Thai food, which is some of the tastiest stuff you will ever eat! Pure magic, and for the price tag, it is a no-brainer! Keep tracking!

We booked 6 day trip of Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai. . From the very first email I sent to them –Asia Tour Advisor – their prompt replies and customer service were excellent. Even with the huge time difference, I received email replies within minutes.
Our assigned tour guide was excellent and caring. Most importantly, Mr. Khun was personable, knowledgeable, and expert at navigating through the crowds. He was quick to point out fabulous photo sites, and was more than happy to snap pictures of our family.
Rooms were spacious and super clean with all the stuff we needed. The lovely maids who work extremely hard had our rooms spotless every day. Breakfast was lovely and beautifully decorated. From start to finish we cannot fault the any single mistake. Locals always gave us the warmest, friendliest smiles. Thai food was excellent enhanced our stay in Thailand with its delicious.Tom Yam Goong – The flavour is a unique combination of spicy hot and sour and makes for an ideal start to a meal, or – when paired with rice – a worthy main dish. The weather was just perfect! Transportation was very excellent with air conditioned vehicles and excellent driver. Everything together made our trip remarkable.

We warmly recommend this tour!

Thank you for making this happen!

While I was in Thailand for a business meeting in last February, I called Asia Tour Advisor and booked a tour called “Experience Golden Triangle in North of Thailand”. To be honest, that was one of the best decisions in my entire life because the experience and memories were irreplaceable. The agency did so well in organizing the trip, preparing the stay and the food for passengers. More over, they sent us lots of care and kindness from tour guides. I did take photos about historical temples with them and I still keep them to this day. I’m thinking of coming back here this year and Asia Tour Advisor will be my first call.

Hi there! My family and I write this review in remembrance of an amazing trip called “Experience Golden Triangle in North of Thailand” from Asia Tour Advisor. Just like its name, the trip took us to the Golden Triangle, where the beauty and nature was spectacular. I was thrilled with what I saw and also what I received from Asia Tour Advisor, especially Ms. Huong the tour guide. We were taken care very seriously as the organizer didn’t want anything bad happen – which was really good. I gave them 5 stars with no hesitation.
