A lovely relaxing morning. I loved speaking with the Buddhist monk about meditation.. My guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.

Siripan was an awesome host - she taught me meditation at my own pace and gave me some really great guides to improve my techniques, as well as some great historical/cultural facts about Thailand. And the temples were beautiful; highly recommend!

I thought long and hard on whether or not I should give a review on this. I am a life-long Buddhist spending decades in USA and wanting to reintroduce my kids to monk-guided mediation with proper principles and good environment. The monk himself was fine and very impressive with communication skill and knowledge. However, everything else that could have gone wrong in this tour did go wrong spectacularly…. 😞 The guide must have been her day 1 on the job with very limited language skill and procedural knowledge of this tour. The guests including me were left bewildered of what to do next after one thing completed. She didn’t know where the bathroom was in the temple. She didn’t know where we should sit down and do meditation. The location was great and scenic. But, instead of guiding us to meditate by the waterfall as shown in the advertisement, she let us sit on ant-infested location. Ants were climbing on my body the whole time I was trying to meditate…. I was traumatized. She didn’t know where we should walk to from one place after another leaving guests separated and wondering around aimlessly without knowing what they are seeing and why they were there. I could have guided this tour myself better if given one or two day of practice. She offered to take pictures for me with her camera, and then never actually got in touch with me to explain how to download the photos taken after the end of the day. I only had a very few pictures on my camera to see. Majority of pictures taken by her camera were gone with her driven away. Had I known this, I would have taken all the photos myself. It was a disaster in almost every way possible. I am saying all this not intending to make the guide lose her job. But, the fault is on the tour operator to begin with, not just on the new guide. If the tour operator were going to introduce the guide on his/her job on day 1, the new guide should have had an opportunity to shadow a more experienced guide during the actual trip for at least one day to understand the procedures, what-to-do, and what-not-do in general. This tour needs a massive improvement. Sorely disappointed..

This was a wonderful experience! My guide, Sirpan was very knowledgeable. She was also very kind and attentive. The setting was stunning and so peaceful. This was the perfect introduction to meditation for a novice westerner like me! The highlight of this experience was meeting a monk, who kindly chatted to me about Buddhist meditation.

I learnt alot about buddhism, and it was a very peaceful experience. The guide was very knowledgeable, although I would have liked the opportunity to talk to a monk

Our guide was funny, kind and very accommodating. The temple was situated in a serene mountainside with waterfalls and dense vegetation, the perfect place for meditation. The monk who sat and spoke with us was very informative, compassionate and patient - we asked a lot of questions! I highly recommend this for anyone looking to relax and wanting an introduction to Buddhism and mediation.
