Mr Bean is the best and friendliest tour guide ever! Never seen someone laughing that much, giving extra hints and bringing us home safely. Also the sights are cool, especially the train market
Nice half-day relaxed sight seeing in Bkk

The Tour was awesome. The guide, Viktor, was very nice and made sure everyone was taken care of and comfortable. He spoke very clear English and I learned a lot about the History of the places we went to. The places chosen for the tour and the duration spend was also very good planned.

Watching the train passed by the train market. Tom, the tour guide is extremely friendly and helpful.
Good tour and tour guide. Transport needs improvement.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was always willing to help with advice and give suggestions for follow up visits. The pace of the tour was also good - not rushed. The minibus we took had issues. The bus ride was 2 hours either way. Air-conditioning was not working properly and everyone in the bus were affected by the heat. It did not seem like the aircon was working properly and although we got back quickly, the speed it took caused quite a few bumps here and there on the road.
Awesome trip but poor guide.
Jeetendra S, 31-12-2022
The two markets are both unique experiences and well worth the trip but our guide was very inexperienced, hardly spoke English and had no clue of what was going to happen next and what visitors would normally need to know. There were plenty of small groups travelling with other guides so we ended up asking them about the program and locations.
Too rushed

The experience would have been great if it wasn’t so rushed. There was no time to enjoy it. If you just want to see it and snap a few photos, then this is the trip for you. We are a family of six and hardly had enough time to use the restroom, let alone grab a souvenir or relax and soak it all in.
