What’s your view on hiring tour guide in Bangkok? I am sure that the opinion will be divided but still….
I have done a bit of research on Hiring tour guide and I read the clear recommendation from Bangkok tourists office advising tourists to only hire official guide with TAT license. I also checked some of the guides website and it appears they charge $90 per day which seems a bit steep.
What I have also learnt that some of these guides also do double booking which is very disappointing.
The question is; do we really need guide? Are majority of Temples and Palaces close to each other and within walking distance?
Our hotel is close to Saphan Taksin BTS station. Do we need to take a water taxi to arrive at the palaces & temples?
What are the Pros & Cons of hiring tour guide?
