We had a great time on the tour. Our guide Mr. Peak and the drivers were very friendly and we got to try a lot of tasty food. The pad thai was delicious! It was interesting to hear more about Thai culture and see new places. Highly recommend.

Everything went smoothly. We often had the same driver, which ended up being quite funny. The process was surprisingly easy. You also had direct access / contact to the operators, which made a lot of things easier. Everything great!

A MUST DO!! A great evening out cruising around in a Tuk Tuk eating lots of food and getting a local experience. Very enjoyable and I recommend to everyone this tour.

This was the best travel experience in bangkok, couldn't recommend more. The app is easy and the tuk tuks arrive really fast. Don't hesitate and book.

Everything as expected and wanted! We can recommend this.
