I plan to visit Luang Nam Tha early this coming May and would like to arrange a car, driver, and English-speaking guide to visit some of the minority villages in the area. Do any of you have recommendations for a specific guide or for a service that will arrange one? If the information is helpful, I currently plan 3 nights at the Thoulasith Guesthouse. Many thanks!
Sometimes it is best to wait until you arrive to book a guide like this. There is a very good chance that your guesthouse has a regular guide they work with and can arrange something for you. There will also likely be travel agencies in town who will have recommendations and can make arrangements.
Once I arrive in a place, I like to ask other travelers too, to see who they may have hired and get their ideas.
I hope that helps. Have a wonderful trip. Cheers.
