Chiang Mai Tours

The historic walled city of Chiang Mai, known as the ‘Rose of the North’, has recently become a popular tourist destination. Those undertaking tours in Chiang Mai will experience the city's beautiful scenery, extremely friendly people and incredible food. There are mountains, forests, national parks and waterfalls in abundance.

Chiang Mai

With just 170,000 people living in the city, it presents those on Chiang Mai tours with authentic Thai experience which is very different from Bangkok. With more than 300 temples, it is the mystical capital of the North, surrounded by mountains filled with remote and historical ruins and colourful wildlife. Unusual and intricate architecture decorate many of this city’s buildings and the famous Night Bazaar is the most popular tourist attraction within the city walls.

Our tours in Chiang Mai offer plenty to do on the outskirts of the city. Located on the Ping River, Chiang Mai is the former capital of the Kingdom of Lanna and it sits among some of the highest mountains of the region. On a clear day, Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep is visible from the city. This gold-plated chedi, which is a cable car or short hike away, offers magnificent views of the temple and the city. Our Chiang Mai tours also visit several elephant sanctuaries which surround the city, where you can experience a close encounter with these peaceful creatures, and our rainforest canopy walks offer a lesson in eco-tourism combined with some adrenaline pumping activities.

Taste the best of what Chiang Mai has to offer

Food. Mmmmmm!

Chiang Mai is also the learning capital of Thailand with classes available in many aspects of Thai culture including Buddhism, Thai massage and cooking. In a country famous for its delicious and varied cuisine, Chiang Mai stands out as a city renowned for its sumptuous dishes. A Chiang Mai tour offers the best chance you will have to learn to make some local dishes, so why not team up with a local chef and head to the markets to pick out some fresh ingredients that you will use in your cooking class that day? During a class you may be taught some of the local secrets and, best yet, you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour for lunch!


Customer Reviews


"We completed the Sacred Valley and Inca Trail trip with Tucan. It was a 7 day 6 night trip and all the accommodation and most of the meals were provided in the price. The guides provided were very friendly and very knowledgeable and the 2 guides stayed with the group for the whole trip. The setup of the hike was amazing, the porters were great and prepared delicious meals and prepared all the tents so when you arrive at the destination you could relax. I found the whole trip great value for money and would recommend Tucan to anyone about to take on the Inca Trail."
