Our guide was a real ray of sunshine (just like his name). He was so nice and friendly and always ready to help. We enjoyed the tour. Thanks to this tour we learned a lot about Thai culture and especially Buddhism in a fun way! It's really worth it to visit the temples with this guide.

excellent guide, who took special care for our family as we had a 3 yr old kid. guide was super informative and gave a background of Thai culture, history, past and present. without the guide, you would end up taking pics without understanding the history. worth the hot and humid weather.
