    It was great. The car was very comfortable and the driver spoke good english and told us some interesting information on the way and gave us great history lessons. You do take time out to rest and relax during the day so you are not going at break neck speed. The pace is actually quite reasonable.

    I booked the tour through internet with Pheobe since many tourists recommended this agent. When I arrived in Bangkok Mr Sam picked us from Hotel. Everything worked perfectly as we planed. Mr Sam is very knowledgeable, patient, helpful and professional. He speaks good English and Thai. Sam is so kind to take care of my father who is a 81 year old senior. Each day after the tour he takes us to the hotel. During the tour he always asks us if you want to take a picture here ? It was an awesome 14-day tour!

    We was booked 14 days for our family. Everything was professionally organized, pick up on-time and smooth tour program. Because our visit time is happened to be the funeral of the King of Thailand, our tour guide Sam was absolutely fabulous and gave us extra special attention and gave us such great insights into the Thai culture, people and Temples. He also knows the perfect spots for images for social media posters like myself and offered to take many photos of us. Great experience! Would recommend.

    We booked this tour in advance. The booking contact was very friendly and responsive. There were no issues with pre-paying the deposit through PayPal and we had no concerns about it either due to the fact that other members reported a good experience. We were not disappointed either. We felt comfortable at the hotel they provided. In additional, they provided a wonderful trip to Bangkok & Chiang Mai. I firmly believe that you will not regret if you choose ume travel.

    I had pre-booked the tour by emailing UME a couple days before I arrived in Bangkok. She was very responsive to emails, and was happy to clarify any questions. He was happy to answer any of my questions, and was really proactive with taking pictures throughout the activities. Our tour guide was excellent and she took great care in explaining everything to us, and our driver was great too, he made sure we always had water and cold wet wipes throughout the trip.

    We did the Floating Market, Railway Market, the Palace and other Bangkok Temple. On our way in, I left my phone on the airplane in Bangkok. He had the driver drop us off at the mall on our way back to the hotel so that I could replace my phone. He ended up going in with us and stayed there for almost 3 hours until we were finished. I truly feel honored to have met such and amazing human being. As to our beach tour, I will give four stars for the tour company itself. Great staff, nice speed boat. The main guide on our boat was great, showing us the good spots to snorkel.

    It has been an unforgettable trip ever. We came to Chiang Mai for business trip with a small group. We found uemtravel on the Website. We asked this agent to operate meeting group with visiting nice attractions in Chiang Mai for us. It has been beautifully worked and smooth. On the trip we got free fruits, free water. Our guide was very young but despite on his age he got huge knowledge of all visited attractions and he was really funny :) ume know all what we need as a little group. Water and flowers (for Buddha) were provided which was unexpected. Every pick up and drop was on time. The travel agents and pick up drivers were friendly.

    I would definitely recommend UME to each and everyone! They are reliable, efficient and provide amazing tours! We are a family of 4 adults and 2 children and booked a 14-day tour a couple of months in advance and the correspondence was excellent, you may wait for a few days to get an answer or response but everything was arranged prior to arriving. Apart from the itineraries I made, our guide took us to some 'off the beaten path' places which are impossible to find if I wasn't with him.

    Our tour guide Eliza in Bangkok and Ayutthaya was fantastic and was very knowledgeable! If you are interested in learning about history and Buddhism, he is your best bet. We also went to an elephant sanctuary, traditional Thai handicraft factory & Damnoen Saduak floating market. The cars was very good and comfortable and the guys very pontual. It takes only us so we can go at any time as we like. They took us to very taste and typical restaurants! Very organized. Satisfied with their service.

    My family enjoyed the experience of doing the island hoping in Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi, the LUNCH was very comfortable. In the afternoon it was raining and the speed boat was sooo fast but thank you to the professional boat driver/captain we enjoyed the bumpy ride. We were never rushed on our tour and had a good time at every island that we visited. In short UME tour are very professional, warm and great value for your buck. I recommend to get the speedboat tour. The pick up to the trip was very prompt with the minivan.

    We went out on 15 Aug. and it was raining but was still our enjoyable days in Bangkok and when we go to Chiang Mai, it is sunny! the staff there were helpful! we had a white river rafting adventure with Elephant trekking and ATV. The elephant ride was a rip-off. and we were absolutely hungry when we finish the whole tour and departure from Phuket and the flight was late, although it was not their obligation to get us some food on the way, they had help us on filling our stomachs. Its an awesome trip we had! After we have arrived at home. They sent us email to ask our feeling and feedback. Great! is what I want to say!

    I contacted this tour agent regarding to see Siam Niramit in Bangkok as well as plans to have a cave tour from Phuket Krabi. The owner provides superb response times to questions. Eva has a wide variety of tours to choose from. Her tours are MUCH pricier than other company. Although we have planned to book it when we have arrived there, but when traveling with a large family paying cash is not practical or safe. For these reasons we opted to go with UME and saved hundreds of dollars by doing so.

    For a booking agency they offer a range of tours at a good price. The tours were awesome with some awesome (vegetarian)food. The pickup vehicle almost always arrived before time and waited for us and tours were properly charted out. A lot of tour choices were made available to suit our interests and convenience. A great thank you to all and everyone from UME travel for making my trip a memorable one for me.

    We had a great time with UME tours. Transfer from airport as well as pickup from airport was prompt. A fantastic full day tour. Just my husband and I so a private trip. My highlight was the long boat ride to the temple on a little island. Lots of laughs on the boat with huge waves! It was a very memorable trip for the entire family.

    Just finished an 14 day tour through Thailand. This is my first time to Thailand and UME Travel advisor helps me making the whole travel. Thank you for your hard work and heartfelt advice! I had so much fun and enjoyed every second of it. Had two tour guides Dave and Ben both amazing at what they do and I love them so much. Would go on a tour again with them in a heartbeat. Couldnt have asked for a better time or better experiences

    Dave and Ben were amazing tour guides, they were really friendly and always willing to help out (I was having issues with my flight back) and they made sure I had everything sorted. Alex and Amanda were also really good to have on board! Alex kept the tour really interesting by telling us info and fun facts about the temples! Wish I could have stayed on Thailand longer - would rate 10/10 :D

    First off, let me start by saying how incredible ume travel really is. The tours they set up and the guides they provide for the trips really do make the experience as easy as possible and allows you to feel free to just enjoy yourself without having to worry about a thing! That being said, there is one leader that really stood out to me when I toured with him. James O'Brien really made an impact on me and our entire group as we travelled through Thailand. James was always upbeat and cracking jokes. He was always encouraging us to try new things and shared his past experiences. Despite being a guide and always surpassing his duties by keeping everything running smoothly and us having a good time. He is an exceptional tour guide and it would be a great privilege to tour with him again!

    The trip was fantastic! The amount of days that we spent in each place was a good amount. I loved Chiang Mai, so personally I would have liked to spend a few more days there. The transportation to each place was great. Loved the slow boat to the border. What a great way to travel. The accommodations were pretty good throughout the tour. The transportation was good as well. The guides were amazing! So bubbly and enthusiastic. They are great at Thailand's history and culture!

    The 13 day Thailand trip was a great way to see a few countries in a short amount of time! Travel days were usually different modes of transportation which was a nice change and all the accommodations were everything we needed and more. There are lots of options for activities but you can really do as much or as little as you'd like! Great views and super fun guides. Would highly recommend this or any other Ume travel trip!

    My experience with UME Travel was amazing! So much so that when I finished my first trip I booked a second one so that I could keep the good times rolling. It wouldn't have been what it was if it wasn't for the amazing guides, they made sure we always had a rad time everywhere we went. The locals that they introduced us to elevated the experience to a different level that I'm so greatful for. The accommodation was the perfect mix for adventure and relaxing. I would recommend a ume trip to anyone and everyone who's looking to have the time of their life that they'll never forget!

    The trip was amazing I loved all the places we traveled to. The hotels was good but not really 5 star. We had to do a lot of traveling some days and I would have preferred to have done long travel days at night time so we wouldn't miss out on enjoying the day. But overall I had an amazing time!

    The trip was fantastic! Ben and Carter were exceptional guides who went above and beyond for our team. The trip exceeded my expectations because of the extended stays in each destination. This really gave me a chance to explore the culture and see everything in each location. Also, Ben and Carter were awesome at establishing a dynamic atmosphere that had all of us begging for a second Thailand trip!

    It was an amazing experience! I truly made lifelong friends in this group, including the guides. Everything was so laid back and easy going and we had tons of freedom to choose what we wanted to do and when. We got to experience so much of what Thailand has to offer. My only regret is not staying longer!
