We had a nice tour of Ping River and enjoyed the tour at the little farm area with introduction to native plants and the lovely sticky rice with mango.

This tour was recommended by lonely planet and I was very disappointed. The guide showed pictures on the boat rather than pointing out sights. Not much to see. Didn't learn anything valuable and paid $15. Would skip this one.
