A really great and very interesting tour. Our guide Oh told us a lot about Bangkok and Chinatown. She was very informative but also incredibly funny and sociable. We got something to eat at 4 stalls/restaurants. It was delicious every time and we were more than full at the end. A really successful evening with Oh. Thank you for this.

Excellent tour! The guide was really friendly and really enjoyed the localness of bangkok. I definitely recommend the morning tour as it can get really hot

We had a most enjoyable morning cycling through Chinatown with our guide Bob. Bob was very informative and well-spoken; we learned a lot about Thailand.
