To find a reasonable and reliable hired driver

I'm thinking of bringing my family of 4 to Doi Angkhang and also to Chiang Rai from Chiang Mai for a 3 days 2 night trip from 22nd Dec'17.

Is there any good recommendation for hired driver?

Also, is it too early to view sakura then?

Thanks

Hi Ali,

Thanks for replying! Id tried Peung but there was no reply. I'll try the contact on the last link as it's more updated.

I've atcually contacted Somboon tour and they quoted me 10,000 baht for 3 days 2 night to Doi Angkhang and Chiang Rai for white and blue temples, the border market etc., inclusive of gasoline. However, I don't know if they are reliable or the price is reasonable. What do you think?

I received a delayed reply from Peung and she was unavailable. We hired benjira kotmongkol, benjirak@yahoo.com. He replied immediately and was a delight to spend the day with. He is an excellent driver and he had suggestions of what to see. Additionally, we asked to stop at a grocery store and wine shop, and was very happy with his choices for us.

I was able to hire a driver during my brief stay in Chiang Mai. I hired Jojoe's Taxi Lady Car Service. I was very happy with the 3 days she drove me around. She has a very nice clean MG3 Car. Good AC, and gives a great tour. Her prices were very reasonable and she was very easy to talk to. Despite me being alone she was able to take me to local spots to eat, an elephant sanctuary, a village with the long neck women, and many temples. You can reach her by calling Miss. Joe (+66) 086-9208696 or use LINE: jojolovenuskin, her english facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/sukanya.jandaung , or her thai FB page: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php…

She made my few days in Chiang Mai great and I thank her for her kindness and hospitality.

Hi Jake, what was the charges like per day by Ms Joe? Does she accompany you at the tourist spot or simply waited for you?

We used a driver recommended by a friend who frequents Chiang Mai. I also recommend it highly. The SafeCar service is run by Nancia. Phone is 66(0)84 7397475. Good prices, very reliable and speaks good English. We were very happy with the rides in a 10 Passenger Van. She can also arrange a smaller car.
