We booked the tour the day before. We were a family of 9 and we were looking for something that can be customized. This tour exceeded all my expectations mainly because of our guide Ja who was phenomenal. She took us on train, tuk tuk, metro. She customized our tour, was very informative and so patient when we changed our mind multiple times during the day on what we wanted to do next. Overall amazing experience and highly recommended specially if you can get Ja as your guide.

Wit was an amazing guide! He was knowledgeable, caring and thoughtful. We visited the Grand Palace, three temples (Wat Pho, Wat Saket & Wat Paknam), the flower market and ended the evening at IconSiam. Transportation during the tour included a mixture of BTS, bus, Tuk Tuk, boat and taxis. I had a wonderful time learning from Wit about the significance of the various cultural sites and the daily lives of Thai citizens.

Great trip, our guide Dada was absolutely fantastic in explaining the background of all the different places we visited. We were able to cover Grand Palace, Temple of golden Buddha, Wat Pho and Wat Arun within 7 hours or so by walk and public transport and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
