Take this tour with Chatchai as early as you can
Mark M, 15-12-2019
Our guide,Chatchai, was excellent. He communicated with us a lot via Whats App, which was especially helpful when our Grab taxi app was not working and we were late to meet him.

Very thorough overview of Bangkok, with very good knowledge of the temples, Buddhism Thai style, food and restaurants, and other information and advice as well! Maybe best was his understanding of the questions we asked, and his ability to answer them. This is not trivial, as many guides with English as a second language know the things they have learned in their tour guide training, but often cannot understand questions or go much deeper in knowledge or descriptions.

He was extremely polite and gracious. We felt very comfortable with Chatchai.

Take this tour with Chatchai as early as you can upon getting to Bangkok, it will make your other days more enjoyable as well.
What an experience!

We had a great experience from the first email, that got answered by Chob in few minutes, to an amazing tour with Ms. Aom, that was very sensitive to our needs, speaks a great English, and had a very wide knowledge.
We were so happy with her, so we booked another tour, this time the secrets of the street food in Bangkok at night, which was a great adventure and so delicious.
We, my wife and my 8 yo, highly recommend this company, and MS. Aom in particular. Enjoy.
If you're a history buff, The Grand Palace tour is for you!

Highly recommend for The Grand Palace tour! She is the most informed and nicest guide. She explained everything at The Grand Palace in details. I appreciated that because I did NOT want a headset that just went over the basics that foreigners have to hear. I even saw a few people listening to her. I asked questions and she was patient and answered all of them. I could not have asked for a better tour guide. I+
Great friendly local guide :)

We did a private tour of Bangkok’s highlights with “Tony”, he was very nice and accommodating, he picked us up from the hotel and we visited the grand palace and it’s temple and the reclining Buddha temple, when we told him of our desire to see a mosque he looked up the most important mosque of Bangkok and took us there and convinced the caretaker to open the special area of the mosque for us to see, he asked and translated for us. He also took us to a great restaurant in the end with a beautiful view of the lake. We really enjoyed his company, his sense of humor and the lovely photos he took of us throughout the day, we highly recommend booking a tour with him :)
