Amazing Private your

Scott was an amazing tour guide for the day - highly recommend this your. Was about 60/90 minute drive each way from Bangkok. He had a “budget” to buy us many different foods, drinks, and souvenir even. At the temple, just need a shawl to cover your knees for women. No need to wear pants all day. Also good tip: bring travel toilet paper for the bathrooms!
Amazing authentic your experience

Nock was an amazing your guide. We enjoyed her guidance and company. I would recommend her for friends. The places we visited were amazing reflecting the culture. Coconut ice cream is a must
Enjoyable trip

thanks. An enjoyable trip. In particular, Nok kindly arranged firefly seeing for our little one, which was not in the original plan.
We had a great time

We had a great time with NOK and Pong the driver .NOK had great information and was very friendly .
The tour was packed full of food and adventure
Great morning out with Lek - fun, relaxed and quirky
priyap532, 08-12-2022
Me and my husband had a guided tour with Lek. She is a very knowledgeable tour guide who speaks fluent English with a relaxed vibe which we loved. It was really incredible to see the disappearing railway market and a fun experience on the floating market. The pick up car was very clean, comfortable and cool with AC. The travel time to get to the markets was quite long but was made enjoyable by being broken up with boat and train rides. We’d highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting Bangkok!
An experience of a lifetime!

Our tour guide, Nok and driver, Kumnuan (Mark) took us on our private tour of the Maeklong Railway and Floating Markets, and it was excellent! Nok was knowledgeable, funny, patient and super generous. She set out the day and it felt like everything went to plan. She showed us how to pray like a traditional Thai Buddhist, treated us to delicious snacks and even took time to help us seek the right souvenir. She told us that she was great at taking photos, and so she took plenty of great snaps of my wife and me at each of the destinations, even amongst the chaos and crowds at each venue. Highly recommend Nok as a tour guide, and Mark as a reliable and safe driver (with, I suspect, his own sense of humour too!)
Best Private Tour Experience

Our guide Nok / Natalie, was THE best!!! Not only was she knowledgeable and often shared useful tidbits about the places we visited, but she also made sure to we got some good photos of our experience along the way. As a Thai-American, I also appreciated learning more about my family’s ancestral home, traditions and culture. Little details like why things are done a certain way, etc. She gave us the time to enjoy everything, never rushing us, and introducing us to new foods and things along the way. Very quickly she didn’t feel like a tour guide, but more of a really good friend who’s showing you around her neighborhood.
A super fun afternoon at the Maeklong Railway and floating markets with Nok Natalie

Nok Natalie gave us an awesome tour today to the Maeklong Railway and the Amphawa floating markets...which really exceeded our expectations! We had several refreshments and snacks as we waited for the train to arrive and then the excitement of watching the train was so much fun. Nok was very patient and friendly, taking excellent photos of our group and the fun we had with the train, stopping at a beautiful Wat, and then exploring the markets later that afternoon.

I think our private evening boat ride watching the sun go down and enjoying fireflies coming out was our favorite part. Of course a very filling and delicious dinner topped off the evening.

We highly recommend Nok Natalie for her very friendly personality, helpfulness and genuine desire to make our tour fun and memorable. You will enjoy her knowledge and experience!
