A perfect way to get a little taste of everything
Nov 2019
A 9-5 tour with hotel pickup in a private car by our tour guide an her driver. Very professional and well mannered. Lots of temples and locations to visit. The driver would take us to each location, drop us off at the door, and later pick us up. The tour guide was with us the whole taking pictures of us, giving us details of each location, and guiding us without hesitation. We were taken to Thiptara for lunch, provided with water, and all entry fees to temples and the private boat ride were included.

First Tour in Bangkok
Dec 2019 • Couples
This was mine and my boyfriend’s first time in Bangkok. I’m glad that we chose this tour company, our guide Gimao was very friendly, outgoing ,knowledgeable and down to earth. She made the tour enjoyable and gave us a lot of information about the different temples and murals that we were introduced to. She was also a great photographer for us. Our driver Mr. Thu was nice and got us to each destinations quickly and smoothly.
We were taken to a buffet lunch on a boat and the food was really good. Our favorite were the coconut pancakes.

Overall, I would recommend anyone visiting for the first time to book this tour as it will be a great way to see key sites and get a taste of what else you’d like to explore in Bangkok.

Bangkok in a day
Nov 2019
We were looking for a a way to see the major temples and sites in Bangkok but only had a few days in town, so we booked the Private tour.

Gimao and our driver “Billy” picked us up at the Shangri-La hotel. We had confirmed with the tour company by email the day before and they were very quick to get back to us.

Our guide and driver took us through China town to the Golden Buddha and then for a walk through the market. A little shopping ensued.

We also made it to the flower market, which is fascinating and beautiful.

The palace grounds are almost sensory overload with the numerous temples built by the Kings over the years. We cant tour the actual palace (no longer in use except rare state occasions) but that was little matter as the rest of the site was more than amazing.

Lunch was at a small place, family run, near the Palace and was great, with fantastic service by the family, with the Matriarch stopping by frequently to check on us.

The reclining Buddha, Dawn Temple, a boat ride in a long boat (a little bit of a challenge to get in and out but a great way to get down the canals and see more of the real Bangkok), completed our day.

I am sure I have left something out, but we got back to the hotel certain we had hit the complete list.

Our guid was fantastic, she had details on the sites as well as gave us insights to family life in modern Thailand.

Our only issue as pasty 60 yr old Midwesterners was the heat. Even in November the heat indices as over 90, and the crowds don’t help. This is where an air conditioned car and someone who knows how to pace the visit really pays off. Gimao continuously produced water bottles for us and found bathroom stops.

Overall I would recommend highly and encourage this for anyone wanting to get to know Bangkok in a day.

A day in Bangkok with Gimao
Oct 2019 • Solo
Gimao greeted me at my hotel with her bubbly personality and our driver and I knew right away that the day was going to be enjoyable.

We set off on the grand tour talking and getting to know each other, her English is excellent! She is a bright girl with much knowledge and a quirky sense of humour to portray Bangkok and it’s history in a remarkable fashion.

She is well knowledged in the history of Bangkok, all the temples and the royal palace and had no issues answering any questions I had or going into detail to ensure I fully grasped the history and relevance of each stop on the tour.

She went above and beyond to make sure I got the most out of my 8HR tour..including paying the long tail boat captain a little extra to ensure that I saw a few Komodo dragons throughout the canals..she saw how excited I was to see Komodo dragons for the first time and made it happen..thanks again Gimao!!

At each stop she brought me to the best spots for pictures and gladly took some of the best pictures of my trip of me for me..she’s quite the photographer!!

All praise to Gimao and our driver for making the most out of my 8HR private tour..I was able to take in most of the key temples and stops to really get a feel for the culture in Bangkok and what it stands for to be a Thai person. Beautiful people with rich history and a lot to be proud of with all the hard work that goes into these temples and monuments.

10/10 would recommend Gimao and this private tour for anyone who is looking to take in as much of Bangkok and it’s history as you can in a day.

Experience Bangkok at your pace
Oct 2019
An awesome day at Bangkok with a tour of some of the famous temples, the Grand Palace. Thai lunch at the local restaurant was delicious. The long tail boat trip gave us a glimpse into the local life. The guide was patient and kept a pace which my aged mother could keep up. She was knowledgeable and helped us get some very good pictures of the places we visited.

Great one day tour of Bangkok!!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide Giamo was wonderful and gracious! She was very knowledgeable and had a sweet personality. We visited many highlights of Bangkok from the Golden, Emerald and Reclining Buddha temples, Chinatown and flower/vegetable markets, longboat ride down a residential canal to the Grand Palace. We went at our own pace and never waited long for the car/boat to take us to the next attraction! Lunch was a buffet aboard a docked boat with many Thai food options. This tour was a great way to see Bangkok in a day.

Excellent Tour!
Jul 2019 • Solo
My cousin and I flew to Bangkok while we were on vacation in the Philippines for a quick 3 day visit.
The first day we went to Chinatown to try the street food and were completely overwhelmed by the crowds, traffic, & not knowing where to go or what stands to try. That night we decided it was best to take a risk and book a private tour to see all the “must see sites” in the city and boy are we glad we did!!!

Our tour guide, Siri was absolutely amazing! She arrived at our hotel on time with the private car. The car was clean, air conditioner was on, & she even had cold bottled water for us.

During the tours Siri was very knowledgeable about the sites and could answer any questions we had.
The Temples we went to were very busy, but she knew exactly where to go & where to take the best pictures.

Lunch was absolutely delicious. They had a western buffet and an authentic Thai Buffet. The Thai food was divine. I absolutely loved everything I had to eat.

The boat tour on the canal was a lot of fun and I felt like a bonus.

Excellent one-day tour of all of Bangkok's Highlights
Jun 2019 • Solo
With only two days in Thailand, on a recent 18-day/five-country Asia excursion, I needed to make the most of my time. This tour was great; I saw all the major sights in Bangkok in a very efficient manner. Highlights included the Grand Palace, Wat Pho (home of the reclining Buddha), the Golden Buddha, a canal cruise (a chance to see how real Thai people live), Wat Arun, and the flower market. At the buffet lunch, which is included, when I originally chose perhaps not the most adventurous choices, my guide encouraged me to sample some of the other dishes, and I ended up falling in love with a fish soup that she had recommended. I also learned a lot about Thai history (and current events) throughout the day. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe throughout the entire day with both my female guide and male driver (both of whom spoke English). I recommend this tour -- especially if you have limited time in Bangkok or for a first-day introduction to the city even if you are fortunate to have a longer stay than I did.
