Many people visualize Thailand as endless expanses of beautiful beaches, lush jungles with exotic wildlife, and cosmopolitan cities with a vibrant culture. Thailand is all that, and a lot more. It is an ancient Buddhist country full of gentle traditions and rituals that evoke the nation’s glorious past.
What will you experience on the best Thailand Tours? Gorgeous gilded Wats (temples), incredible street food, breathtaking scenery, elephant experiences, colorful night markets, Bangkok’s famous nightlife, and resorts and, of course, the amazing beaches that draw millions of visitors every year.
Our Thailand Luxury Tour Packages focus on all of the above, but also give you opportunities to immerse yourself in the unique culture by including experiences other tour companies do not offer. We stay away from markets that have more tourists than locals, and avoid hokey experiences such as some of the paid Monk Chats and touristy weaving villages.
That Thailand is really the Land of Smiles will be obvious to you the minute you arrive, and soon you will find yourselves joining in, spending most of your day with a grin permanently plastered on your face! The Thai are an easygoing people, and the hospitality and warmth you will experience is only matched by a couple of other Asian nations.
The Thai people are justly proud to be the only nation that was not subjected to European Colonial rule in the last four centuries. This allowed their culture to develop more indigenously, although remarkable progress and modernization have occurred over the last few decades, leading to a higher average standard of living when compared to most other Southeastern Asian nations. + Read More
All tours are not created equal, nor are all travel companies. The best Thailand tours and packages should include experiences that delight and amaze you every day of your exploration. This can only be achieved by a boutique agency with local expertise.
Easy Tours was born in 2004 with one guiding principle – to be the best tour company in Thailand and Asia for explorers from North America. We have not sacrificed our quest on the altar of growth – in 2017 we guided under 2000 people in the nine Asian countries we now call home.
Although roughly 40% of our guests today are repeats and referrals, it is possible that Easy Tours will not be a good fit for you. If the following features of our tours are what you are looking for, please take the time to review some of our detailed itineraries.
1. Genuine interactions with locals
2. Boutique upscale and luxury hotels with excellent cuisine and service.
3. Small Group Tours: Asia’s best Accompanying Tour Directors.
4. Private Tours: Immersive cultural tours that include daily flexibility on the fly.
5. USA and Thailand based Specialists to answer questions and make suggestions.
The best Thailand tour packages?
After 14 years of facilitating group and private tours in Thailand and Asia, Easy Tours knows what makes for a truly memorable exploration. The three most important parts of the best Thailand tours are well planned itineraries, great guides, and boutique upscale hotels.
We understand what seasoned explorers enjoy. Our guests like a diverse mix of culture, local colors, history, and insights into the everyday lives of the locals. Because we know a satiated appetite and a good night’s sleep are an integral part of the finest travel experiences, so we use the best luxury hotels in Thailand and great restaurants.
We have refined our Thailand Tour Packages for 2018 & 2019. We include more genuine local cultural experiences, instead of just rushing you between sights and experiences. We have done away with most journeys that are tediously long and/or uninspiring, and almost eliminated very early morning starts.
Thailand is very diverse and has a lot to offer to explorers of all kinds. Besides its amazing cultural, natural, and historical diversity, Thailand is also home to some of the world’s best upscale and luxury hotels. This website offers a plethora of information for upscale travelers, including information on the best beach resorts in Thailand and when to visit them.
Easy Tours uses the term Packages to include the best Thailand tours (group travel) and luxury vacation/travel packages (private tours).
We offer a large selection of Thailand tours and vacation packages that combine Thailand with neighboring nations. You can select from Thailand and Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam, and Myanmar and Thailand tours and vacation packages. Our Best Tour of Southeast Asia includes Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand and the Best Places to Visit in Southeast Asia includes Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar.
Passion leads to excellence, and our guests interact with people deeply committed to their satisfaction all through the reservation and travel experience. This is a key reason why about 40% of our guests are repeat and referral travelers, and our reviewers consistently state that we are not just the best tour operator in Thailand, we are unmatched in the world!
Please take a minute or two to read some of our guest reviews. You will notice that almost all our guests, during their exploration, develop relationships with Easy Tours’ guides, chauffeurs, and travel facilitators. We have many guests from over a decade ago that, even today, maintain relationships with our Southeast Asia based colleagues.
The best Thailand Luxury Tours have a combination of interesting destinations and authentic cultural experiences, great hotels, well planned itineraries that keep uninspiring travel to a minimum, as well as passionate guides and other support staff.
Some people mistakenly believe that a luxury tour is like a pair of branded jeans – that all of them will fit the same. This is completely incorrect, and guest that have traveled with us and with other companies are well aware of this.
Your guides and chauffeurs must have a passion for, and a deep knowledge of, their homeland. It is human interactions that make up discerning explorers fondest memories, not how many sights, or cities, they visited while touring. Our guests often shed tears when they part from our colleagues and wax poetic about them in their reviews!
You will benefit from doing a little bit of quality research about your tour company, as opposed to rapidly clicking on different search results. Take the time to actually go through a detailed itinerary or two as you research. The best explorations touch your heart – your itinerary should make you really want it to start tomorrow!+ Read More
5 Best Thailand Tour Packages
|Tour Name & Destinations||Date||Price|
* Per Person with Double Occupancy Land Costs
Boutique Upscale Hotels
Easy Tours is a preferred Thailand tour operator partner of Thailand’s highest rated luxury hoteliers. Most tour companies use the terms ‘luxury’ and ‘5-star hotel’ very loosely. We recommend that you compare the hotels we use in Thailand with other tour operators offerings by researching reviews and rankings.
We know that the best tours in Thailand have to include great dining options, and the restaurants at our preferred hotels receive rave reviews from guests.
We believe in mindful travel. If you are someone who likes having everything always go your way and are not open to adapting to other cultures and their idiosyncrasies, as well as the existing ground realities in Asia, we recommend that you use one of the large tour operators who offer sanitized tours and vacations.
Legal Residents of the United States and most western nations do not require a visa for stays up to 30 days in Thailand. For longer stays you can obtain a visa before you arrive, or pay for an extension on your passport while you are there.
This website has more information on travel in Asia (and its main destinations) than the next 10 websites combined.
There are tour itinerary pages with many links to outside resources, and over a thousand pages with individual destination information & more links.
You could surf websites for days and get really confused, or you can use this site and the links it contains and get all the information you need. You can also tell us when you'd like to start your visit, or select from available group tour dates in most Tour Pages.
You can combine two, or more tours, or tell us to design a tour around your preferences. Ask for information if you have any remaining concerns or questions. Once you've decided what you'd like to do during your visit to Asia, fill out and submit the Reservation Inquiry Form in the relevant tour page.
After confirming availability (and figuring out the other logistics if you're not opting for any advertised tour dates) we e-mail (or fax, if you prefer that) you a "Confirmation of Availability Package". We hold your reservations for 3 business days from that day, and if you don't respond, we reserve the right to not offer you the same dates or pricing.
After you confirm your approval of the itinerary and other details in that package to us, and pay us the required deposit, your reservations are confirmed, subject to the terms and conditions you agree with in your acceptance of the C.O.A.P.
A link to this package (a page hosted on our website) is e-mailed to you shortly after you decide to visit Asia as our guests. For people booking over the phone and not wanting to use the web, expedited mail or fax processing is used to send the C.O.A.P., instead of e-mail processing. There is a small handling fee for mailed copies.
Reservations are not confirmed until your initial deposit or payment is processed, and we have received the completed C.O.A.P. (whether fax, mail, or e-mail based). The Confirmation of Availability Package includes the following four items:
(1). A itinerary of your visit with us, with a unique Guest Identification, that you can refer to in all further communication.
(2). Terms & Conditions that you are required to review and accept, including our policies relating to payments, cancellations, and refunds.
(3). A Cancellation Form that you can use to inform us, in the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your visit.
(4). A link to our secure payment processing pages. Once you've reviewed all the contents of the above, and agreed to the relevant sections; you will be directed to our secure payment processing center to pay the balance due at that time.
(1) making various reservations for your travels in Asia
(2) processing your payments through the Banks and Credit Card transaction institutions (all located in the United States) that we deal with.
From time to time, we may send you information on our specials. You will always have the option to stop us from doing that whenever you choose.
We do not accept complete payments till you confirm acceptance of the itinerary, and the "Terms & Conditions", included in our "Confirmation of Availability Package". You pay an initial deposit when you select one of the available group tour dates, or at the time of your acceptance of our proposed itinerary for your visit.
This deposit may not be refundable, in whole or in part, in the event you choose to cancel or alter your reservations. Part of this deposit covers our costs for arranging all the initial details, including credit card or check transaction fees, making reservations for you, and other administrative costs.
Last minute reservations on one of our advertised group tours or specials may require immediate payment in order to secure an opening for you. Your reservations are valid (subject to our terms and conditions) when your initial payment is processed, and then received by our bank. All payment processing is done by secure servers and your protection is guaranteed by the merchant banks processing the transactions.
What should you pack for your trip?
You can dress as you normally do while exploring most attractions in the big cities and while you are at your hotels. However, when visiting a few religious monuments, such as the Grand Palace Complex in Bangkok, both ladies and men can sometimes be required to keep their legs and shoulders covered, and shorts or mid length skirts are completely unacceptable. In smaller towns and rural areas, women may want to wear a shawl or scarf that covers their upper torso. For men, short-sleeved shirts are more respectful than wearing t-shirts. Formal clothing is not required at dinner at even the top luxury hotels in Thailand. Natural fabrics are highly recommended and it is a good idea to dress in layers in winter due to the temperature variances between the morning and afternoon.
Please bring a sturdy and comfortable pair of walking shoes, sneakers or sandals.
A high level of medical care is available everywhere in Thailand, except for rural areas and very small towns. Almost all the Hotel’s that Easy Tours’ uses in these cities have experienced doctors on call that will pay a visit to your room for a very nominal charge. Although medicines with similar active ingredients to what are found overseas are available in pharmacies in Thailand’s larger cities, you should bring an adequate supply of whatever medicines you usually need. Please note that the civil aviation authority in Thailand has strict rules for liquids and medical paraphernalia for carryon bags and it is your responsibility to conform to these regulations.
High quality shampoo and conditioner are provided by all Hotels used by Easy Tours, and most of them also provide additional items such as moisturizers and hair dryers, while toothbrushes and paste, razors etc. are provided upon request.
Anti-bacterial hand wipes are useful for some situations. We recommend that you take a small quantity of your favorite mosquito repellent. If you wish to use any electronic devices from other nations, you will need an adaptor plug that also modulates voltage (if required), which almost all hotels provide upon request, if it is not already placed in your room. These adaptors work well for almost all regular chargers such as phones, cameras, and laptops, but they are not designed to work with heavy duty items such as game consoles. The adaptors do develop problems after some use so you are encouraged to have the Hotel replace them if they do not function well. Easy Tours’ staff will be happy to assist you in purchasing your own adaptor, if required. For those with a need to charge multiple electronic items, we recommend that you pack a power strip that can be plugged into the adaptor, allowing you to charge multiple devices simultaneously.
You are received by your Visit Facilitator at your choice of location. From then on, anything you need becomes a priority for our staff in Asia.
You are provided with (for each destination during your visit) descriptions of monuments and places of interest. A Visit Facilitator or Tour Director may accompany you on your journey between destinations. If they don't they'll be with you till you board, and be waiting when you deplane. They will help you with your hotel check-ins and check outs (these are already expedited by our planning and contacts).
Local explorations are conducted in comfortable air conditioned transportation, - usually one of our comfortable air-conditioned vehicles. After breakfast each morning, your guide or Tour Director familiarizes you with the days agenda, your options, and other relevant details about the local attractions.
Do I discuss flights to and from Asia with you?
We will be more than happy to counsel and assist you with international flights once you are satisfied with your tour’s details.
We recommend that our guests arrive in Thailand a day before they start touring so as to rest and recuperate. If you are well rested soon after arrival, Bangkok is an amazing city to explore by yourself, and the area around your hotel will be an ideal starting point.
You can spend a significant amount of time researching your travels plans, which is something that many explorers enjoy. Please note that a lot of the information out there, both on the web and in print, is outdated, or just incorrect. If you are going to use a premier tour company to facilitate your tour of Thailand, select one that has real Thailand specialists who can guide you and make recommendations. Such specialists should have travelled extensively in Thailand themselves, and most of the large companies that sell the world do not have such specialists, despite their claims to the contrary.
