We took 2 tours with Explorenique, and both were lead by it's founder Geng.
Best experience of our stay in Bangkok. Geng was a great guide, telling super interesting stories about all the places he showed us. Whether it was the Khlong Lad Mayom floating market, or a zipping tuk-tuk ride to the Golden Mount, it was always exciting and interesting.

Everywhere we went, there was SO much amazing food. Geng brought us food from almost every stand we visited, so come with an empty stomach :-D

All in all, amazing guide and tours, and if we'll return to Bangkok, we'll definitely go with Explorenique again.

GENG was my personal guide. I was in Thailand on a Solo. He knows the Thai Culture very well and shows you everything you request and lets you experience Thailand first hand through his knowledge of his hometown and culture. I give him 10 stars not 5. He took me into the back ends of Thailand to show me more than what other guides would show you. He explains the history of all attractions and is a very nice guy. Great English so it makes it easy to understand. He also takes great pics for you. My tour guide for the next day was nothing like him Book him the entire time you are in Thailand if you can.

Geng was fantastic! We were first time visitors in Bangkok and he tailored the tour around our needs and made sure it wasn't too much for the kids. We were able to see the famous attractions and some of Bangkok's life by going to a local market. He picked street food for us to sample and advised on restaurants and rest place. All with a great smile on his face! Thank you!

Geng was the perfect tour guide. He was very accommodating and really took us on a tour of the things we wanted to see. He suggested a great lunch spot along our route and took us to some hidden treasures that you wont see on any website. We also loved the fact that he had spent some time in the United States, and had a lot of common interests and things to talk about. In the end it was more like getting a tour from a friend.

For those who want to see the REAL Bangkok. Traditional foods, local life,

After being to Bangkok before I have spent a lot of time exploring the wonderful city and fell in love with it the first time I arrived. But my second time in Bangkok I wanted to see the party of the city and the local life, behind the stalls of elephant pants and massages and tourist.
It's easy to find some good street stalls on your own- just wander down pretty much any street and you'll find some- but to find the really best ones you need to know where to go. With Gege he will take you right to them and you will sample some of the best Thai food and street snacks Bangkok has to offer.
Not only does he have impeccable English, he really loves his city and you can really tell in the pride he takes throughout the tour. He will also take you to his secret beauty spots that are hidden all over the city (some only reachable by boat). Not only the spots for tasty treats but to see the heart of Bangkok, far away from the well trodden path. You will experience hidden temples, the best spot to watch sunset over the city, markets where the locals do their shopping, crazily bidding over flowers, shouting orders, eating and laughing.
A true experience in Bangkok is to travel by tuk tuk and in the evening -when the city comes alive- you really feel what an amazing atmosphere this city has.
I had a wonderful time on the tour with Gene, he's a wonderfully entertaining character and he introduced to me another side of Bangkok and Thai life I would never have experienced without.

Hi Madelyn K,

It's very delightful for me to hear that you have a positive experience about the tour viewing the other side of Bangkok.

Thailand has varieties of food to offer which you tried them on the tour. On this Tuk Tuk tour and the other tours that Explorenique offers, I and my team carefully selected snacks and restaurants that are the locals' most favorite for our guests to experience. Learning that you like them is a big reward for us.

We want you to get the most out of it when taking tours with us. All those hidden spots along the tour you were shown are little surprises we intend to give to all guests and in case guests want to come back and enjoy those hidden spots on their own. They can do so. This "Bangkok Tuk Tuk Sunset Long-tail Night Lights Tour" is designed to give our guests a great introduction to Bangkok.

Taking Tuk Tuk in the evening is one of the best moments of the day to do it since the city gets cooler and the nightlife is about to begin, our guests will experience the evening way of life of the locals. Same place but different time, it can give you a totally different emotion.

Lastly, thank you for your complimentary on my English skill. I still have a lot of room to improve. Learning English is already hard but maintaining it is even harder especially when living in Bangkok where people don't speak English. Working in tourism industry as a tour guide is a great way for me to use my English so I won't lose it and in fact I am more than ever very happy working as a tour guide because it's so much fun meeting people from around the world sharing interesting perspectives as well as showing my sleepless city of Bangkok to the world ^_^

Wish you the best.

Geng
