Nuch was arguably one of the best tour guides I have ever experienced. She was so knowledgable and we found it gave an extra edge to other tours we have been too. Nuch put our questions and needs first and therefore made the experience very personal. She ensured we were well hydrated and did make us feel that we could not ask any needless questions. What a tour! Thank you Nuch 😀

We had booked this trip almost last minute. We wanted a general overview of some of the main sights in Bangkok and our guide definitely delivered. We had a great experience at each of the tree sights we visited and we had plenty of time to enjoy them.

Pong was an excellent guide and host, showing me old Bangkok and local food. The coolest thing for me was riding through the narrow passages of the potuguese quarter and the hustle and bussle of China Town. Defiantly worth doing.

Was an incredible expirience. Sasa was a nice guide and gives us all the information about the different locations. The food was delicious.

Guide Thongsuk is good in your job, very kindly and she showed us details about the temples that we had visited today. Thanks!!
