Magical

I booked this for my husband and I, and I was unable to go.
My husband had a wonderful time and of course always talks about the great time he and Kit had. They were up early am and he said it was magical being
there without the tourists and able to witness the beauty and life they live.
Definitely a great memory for him.

Sunrise at Doi Suthep

Kit was fantastic. As a former monk, he knew much about the temple and
Buddhist teachings. He arrived right on time drove us to a shrine at
the foot of the mountain, where we made offerings to Buddha and bought
food for the monks at the temple. After watching the sunrise and
touring the temple grounds, Kit treated us to some delicious local
coffee. After coffee, we visited the temple in the jungle about
halfway down the mountain. Kit was very polite and his English was
quite good. I highly recommend a tour with Kit.

Hiking to Wat Phalat and walking meditation with Kit

We wanted to do this tour as we had previously spent a lot of time at the bigger Doi Suthep Temple, it was the reason I returned to Chiang Mai for a second year, it was really special, a wonderful morning in a beautiful place, where we learnt so much from Kit about Buddhism and life in Thailand, an absolute highlight of our holiday. I would recommend to anyone and everyone, and I would certainly recommend kit, who was easy to talk to and very knowledgable, we would never have got the same experience visiting here without Kit.

Memorable tour

This was definitely one of my favorite highlights from our trip. Kit
is full of information about the Monks and the Buddhist way of life.
The views were spectacular and hearing/ seeing the Monks do their
morning ritual was something i’ll never forget. I will definitely
recommend this experience to everyone who wants to learn more about
the culture of Thailand.

Excellent trip!!

We booked Kit for a walking meditation and temple tour. Kit is
extremely knowledgeable about the local history, Buddhism and the
temples. Very friendly with fluent English to answer all our various
questions. We highly recommend! Thank you Kit!!

Wonderful trip with a wonderful host

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Kit. He is very
friendly and easy to talk to, and he has a lot to tell about the
temples we visited, about Buddhism en Thai culture.

In my opinion, it adds great value to visit a place like Doi Suthep with a local guide,
especially with someone who was a monk. It really enriches the
experience. And even more so if this person is as nice and pleasant as
Kit!

Fantastic experience, well worth the early morning

The experience was great! (once you get passed the early morning
start) it is well worth it. Kit was great and so knowledgable. You see
the temple at its best, it’s very quiet at that time, very peaceful
and calming. We enjoyed learning about the history of Thailand and the
daily routines of the monks. Kit filled us in on his own personal
experiences which was really kind of him and allowed us to ask him all
sorts of questions about his time and decision to become a monk. We
even had a blessing while we were there from a monk. It was a great
experience and so much fun. I would certainly recommend. Kit is also
full of tonnes of knowledge about great things to do in Chiang Mai so
certainly use him and his advice.

Great Job, I should spoke up...

Tony guided us through the two sections of Doi Suthep. The temple to
the west of Chiang Mai. We appreciated his timeliness and access to a
comfortable car for the trip up the mountain. He is a knowledgable
guide who can explain the aspects of Buddhism and meditation to those
he guides. We recommend Tony for your tour.
Tony could have made more effort to teach and practice the walking meditation. He shared very basic information about breathing, took three steps and that it. We were not even in a wooded, or particularly quiet or pleasing area. I was very disappointed in that part. I still would recommend him, but tell him what you want if he misses the mark. Wish I did...

Doi Suthep Temple tour with Kit.

We met Kit promptly at 5am. He picked us up in a new, clean SUV which
was very comfortable. Kit’s presents and demeanor was also very
comforting. During our 45 minute ride to the temple Kit explained his
background and the history of the region and temple we were about to
tour. Once at the temple Kit guided us around the complex providing
great information which only someone who spent years as a Monk there
could provide. He arranged for two private blessings with two
different Monks. Kit managed his time well as we had plenty of time
within the temple and still get to see the sunrise from a different
viewing spot on the complex. After the tour we stopped for coffee then
at another temple and meditation center on our return ride. Kit
provides an awesome experience which I hope many others will enjoy.
