“A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Can't say enough good things about Thai Private Tour Guide. From the initial request to the end of our second day, everything was perfect. Chob was awesome at planning out 2 days. Ms. Thim was a great guide. We did the Bangkok city palace tour and the Floating market/train market tour. Every aspect was prefect.

“Excellent, friendly and personalised service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I am an experienced traveller but it was quite impossible to get to floating markets on our own with local public transport thus I served around and thank god I hired Chob's services. Initially we were quite nervous in meeting our guide Ms Pu and our driver Pi Twee as it was our first time hiring private tourguides in Bangkok but we were picked up on time, chauffeured in private cooling car that was a wonder during the super hot day. We not regret a single bit of it because they were so friendly and approachable. We were given frozen towels and ice water when we got back from each destination. Pu bought us fried bananas and the best coconut ice cream in the world from the train and floating markets. we were able to ask questions as they spoke really good english. Even though the price is slightly on the high side, I would still recommend Chob to everyone who wish to travel in peace.

“Wonderful, Personalized Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We were in Bangkok for a few days after travelling from Singapore, KL, Krabi and thought about hiring a tour guide My wife and I have travelled all over Europe and China and have never hired a personal guide. However, it really does make sense here as many people only know VERY basic english and our thai is nonexistent. We did a two day tour of Bangkok proper and the floating/railway markets. We would have left Bangkok without knowing a TON of insider sites and information.

The most important factor is that their tour guides are amazing! We had Ms. Aom and i have no idea where she gets her energy and enthusiasm to make each day so special even though she must do this all the time.

Flexibility is great! You can adjust your tour if needed. Thanks again Mr. Chob and Ms. Aom!

“If only it was not so damn hot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We had a good day with our guide, spoilt a little by the heat which was very intense, and we are experienced travellers, and this was our third visit to thailand.

Suggest to try and start as early as possible - and be travelling in the minivan during the midday heat.
My only gripe was the place we had lunch in Bangkok was a bit of a disappointment.

Guide and driver very efficient

“Personal Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We spent a day in a private comfortable car, with a personal tour guide that was very informative about the Thai ways. His english was very good, so we didnt have any language barrier. We were picked up on time, driven to the three locations of our choice. I would recommend this tour for any tourist to Bangkok that would like a private tour.
