My guide was Kung and she made the tour the highlight of my experience here Thailand. She takes joy in ensuring that you experience the very best and goes out of her way to delight. Her knowledge and passion shines light to the temples and beautiful art you will experience.
Fantastic Tour Guide And Photographer

Kung is such a sweet, knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. She shared so much history about Thailand, the Royal Family, how Bangkok was developed, the life of monks, etc.

She is also a great photographer, which was fantastic for us since most of our photos have been selfies to these point.

We would highly recommend Kung when visiting Bangkok, and when we come back we will certainly plan to visit with her again to learn about the Old City.
Bangkok and Buddhism

Today was brilliant.
Kung (my guide) was not only very knowledgeable but also so passionate about everything she talked about.
This tour has unexpectedly increased my interest in Buddhism exponentially
I saw, learned and experienced so much, you couldn’t ask her a better guide.
I was lucky enough to have Kung to myself, she was worth every penny.
She even helped me to get the correct train home!
If you are interested in Buddhism and the history of it within Bangkok, you will not find a better guide.
Miss it, miss out!!
Great experience, searching for enlightenment.

Saravarint is a kind and very knowledgeable tour guide. She took us around the journey with love and passion, showing us the teachings of buddha and her own understanding of Thai culture, history, art, and religion. It's been a great experience and I would recommend anyone interested in Buddhism and Thai history to experience the tour.
