How did traveling with Margie as your tour guide enhance your visit to Thailand?

"Traveling with Margie is a breeze and an experience of a lifetime.  Her knowledge of Thai culture and familiarity with Chaing Mai made it a very seamless process.  The information that is provided well in advance of the trip, answers all questions anyone might possibly have.  It is an absolute must read!"

Which guided tour was your favorite and why?

"The day that begins with Doi Suthep Temple is in my top favorites.  That day is a "sampler experience.  We traveled through Chaing Mai, to the mountain area, entering and walking the temple grounds, down the lengthy beautiful staircase exiting the temple, meandering through vendors with amazing Thai food.  We then traveled down to the very hospitable family owned Jade factory (best ever iced coffee there!).  There were even more options after leaving the Doi Suthep mountaintop.  That evening we went to the Sunday market.  This is my favorite of all the many markets and very, very, popular.  That means it gets very crowded, so go early in the evening.

How was your training experience at TMC School of Chiang Mai?

"My training experience at TMC of Chaing Mai was excellent.  The instructors all speak English and do a remarkable job of teaching and sharing their culture.  They are very patient, kind, and respectful.  I have been fortunate to take classes at TMC on 3 different trips and they continue to provide a high standard of teaching that attracts students from all over the world."

What is one tip you would give to travelers visiting Thailand?

"The one tip I would offer to first time Thailand travelers is remember that you are not in the USA, so adjust your expectations and have a great time experiencing the Northern Thailand culture.  Yes you can get a Starbucks in Chaing Mai, but why would you?  Expect the unexpected, be flexible, patient, and respectful."

Why did you choose to go back to Thailand with Margie Meshew as your tour guide?

"I chose to make return trips with Margie because of the high quality of her tour packages.  Each trip was equally fantastic.  I would be ready to make another trip with her group at a moments notice."

How did traveling with Margie as your tour guide enhance your visit to Thailand?

"I noticed that Margie's main concern throughout the trip to Thailand was our comfort and enjoyment.  She has been to Thailand so many times and truly showed that she loves the country and its people and wants you to love them just as much!  My mom and I felt like we were being carried along on a constant flow as we experienced one amazing, lovely, and joyful moment after another!"

Which guided tour was your favorite and why?

"The truth is that Margie took us on so many different and interesting excursions, it's hard to say which one was my favorite.  But if I have to choose just one, then the water rafting was my favorite guided tour.  We had a chance to see the purity, simplicity, and beauty of Thailand's nature.  It made me want to move and live there."

How was your training experience at TMC School of Chiang Mai?

"My training experience at TMC School of Chiang Mai was absolutely phenomenal.  It really brought home to me how much Thai Massage is a revered and powerful healing practice.  It wasn't just about learning techniques, which we did, but also understanding the energetic and spiritual power of what we were learning, something you don't get in the USA."

What is one tip you would give to travelers visiting Thailand?

"I would tell people who have the opportunity to travel to Thailand with Margie to just trust, to allow themselves to be immersed in the culture and feeling of the country and its people.  This has been for me a rare experience of complete letting go!"

Why did you choose to go back to Thailand with Margie Meshew as your tour guide?

"Margie was my Thai teacher at my massage school so it was without hesitation that I joined her on one of her trips as soon as I was able to, especially after hearing about other people's experiences!  I was so confident that it would be the trip of a lifetime that I took my mom with me!  I'm looking forward to going back!"

How did traveling with Margie as your tour guide enhance your visit to Thailand?

"Traveling to a foreign country can be very stressful!  Margie makes the experience relaxing and seamless.  The only thing you need to think about while touring with her is where you want to eat or shop next!  Her years of experience and personal connections in Thailand assures you are well taken care of.  You can absolutley go alone for cheaper, but run the risk of making costly mistakes while you are there.  I prefer getting the most out of my trip with the least amount of thinking.  You will most definitely get that AND some with Margie."

Which guided tour was your favorite and why?

"I loved experiencing the Loy Krathong Festival and Parade!  The music, the floats, releasing your Krathong into the Ping River and your Rice Lantern into the sky?  Magical and emotional are the only words I can find to describe it."

How was your training experience at TMC School of Chiang Mai?

"TMC School has a phenomenal training program.  I went two years in a row to complete the 150 hour Thai Massage Certification and loved every minute.  The teachers are passionate, professional, and so funny!"

What is one tip you would give to travelers visiting Thailand?

"Be patient and open minded.  Thai ways of life and culture are a little different from ours in the U.S.  For example; Thais tend not to stress about the small stuff.  Take advantage of this!  If your meal takes a little longer than expected, don't freak out.  There is no rush!  Enjoy the Thai hospitality."

Why did you choose to go back to Thailand with Margie Meshew as your tour guide?

"Well...firstly, the value!  I feel like I got waaaay more than what I payed for.  I had priced other tour companies that included Thai Massage training that were basically the same price but with a lot less included - no buffets, no Thai cultural center, no walking tour, nothing.  Margie has a very eventful itinerary!  Secondly, I wanted to see Margie again!  She made me feel like family.  I couldn't wait to go back."
