I booked a private one day Curious Gecko Chiang Rai tour for myself and my family through their parent company Blugecko. Even though I did not want to visit elephants I choose this company on the basis of their elephant policy and so far good reviews on here (Tripadvisor). I think any company which doesn’t offer trips which are harmful to the welfare of elephants should be supported. We were short on time so we choose their one day program. They fit a lot into it and it is a long day with a long drive up to the Golden Triangle (but I guess this is the price you pay if you want to see these sights in a day) With hindsight choosing the two day program would have been better and would have reduced the amount of time we spent traveling in a single day. The highlight of our days was taking the boat on the Mekong River, visiting The White Temple and visiting the friendly long neck people. The guide Nana was exceptionally friendly and great with the kids. The driver Thur was always careful and had the minibus cooled for us on our return from the sightseeing. Aor the staff at the office who answered all my emails was patient and customized the tour for us. If we come back to Chiang Mai we will definitely use Curious Gecko again and request Nana for our guide.
