A relaxing motorbike trip to the mountains and the lake
I originally booked the trip "escape to the beautiful mountains". But I found out when Ms Darla picked me up that that tour was to visit Chiang Dao mountains and the Chiang Dao caves, where I had already visited the day before. Ms Darla was very flexible and accommodating to change the tour to "explore secrets of Chiang Mai".
We visited Mae Jom, an orchid garden, a local village market and rounded up the day with a relaxing lunch by the lake at the Huay Tung Tao lake. Ms Darla shared with me about the places the locals go and the other tours she guided. I hardly saw other foreigners during our day trip. Even the menus at the places where we had lunch and breaks were written in Thai.
While the trip was relaxing, it might not be suitable for someone who wants to visit as many places as possible in a day. Then again, if someone wants to experience the local culture, it is not the local style do a day trip by rushing from one to another.

Fun, insightful and beautiful
I had a really good time with Darla and seen some amazing sights. I feel like the transport could have been better organized coming down from the mountain, but this did not effect my overall happiness from the trip.
