Reviews

Had a very nice tour of Thailand with Wanna tours. My only complaint would be the selection of golf courses. We were in Thailand for golf primarily and sightseeing secondarily. The courses picked in my opinion were pretty average to below average. I am not sure if there are better courses but the ones chosen were not what would be considered the top courses to play in Thailand. The last course we played allowed sixsomes which meant a pretty slow round of golf. I don't think the company has done many golf trips in the past. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The drivers did a nice job and things ran very smoothly.

We used Wanna tours to guide us through Siem Reap Cambodia and Chiang Mei Thailand. A great guide and driver were furnished in each location. They were very helpful and made our trip.

Unfortunately, our guide, while a lovely person, seemed totally out of his depth in Bangkok. His normal territory is Chiang Mai and Chiang Rei. I believe there must have been some issue with the normal Bangkok guide(s) and our guide was sent by the company to Bangkok to stand in for another who was unable to guide our group. The owner should probably have been the stand-in!
