We really enjoyed our guide, George. He was knowledgeable, friendly and very funny. His English was amazing. We really liked getting to all the sites by so many different means of transportation- boat, sky train, walking and tuk tuk. Highly recommended

This walking tour with a guide was great! We had half a day experiencing river boat, tourist boat, tuktuk taxi and sky train and our guide took us though the temples and palace
We saw so much more than being stuck in the massive traffic jams in a minibus The guide kept us well supplied with water and adapted our route when we got too hot
Well worth it!

Our tour guide, Malee, really made this experience great! We saw so much with her and she had specific knowledge about all of it! In particular, we loved her stories about the temples. She was also very attentive to our needs and questions. It was only our second in Bangkok and we felt like we were in good hands. Thank you so much.

Bo was a brilliant guide, nothing was too much trouble and he spent time to explain things which was god especially when we visited the Grand Palace. Would defiantly recommend this tour.

Very high price, tuk tuk drivers will take you round and round to places that you did not ask for.
Safety is not a familiar word in their lexicon.
Bottom line - Tourist trap.

We started by meeting Boe at our hotel, he was welcoming and informed. We took a cab to the Grand Palace, what was so appreciated was his 'short cut' way to get us around amongst the thousands of tourists. Thank you for that...
His knowledge of the Palace and of the Temples was fascinating. We traveled the city and local neighbourhoods by taxi, local tuk tuk, canall boat and sky train. Loved it! Thank you Boe for an excellent day. This company is fortunate to have you as a guide. Jay and Ginette / Canada
