Found Tour with Tong through the top tripadvisor rating and was really happy that I persisted with trying to get in touch with Tong initially to make our bookings. I realise that she is a busy lady and once the contact had been made all communication was great and we were extremely happy with our tours. Daeng was our guide for the 2 days and she was wonderful. She could not do enough for us from taking photos, carrying our backpack at times, recommending wonderful places to eat, making us laugh, not overloading us with information but making our days together fun and interesting. She listened to what we wanted and was flexible to change things up along the way to suit us. We had a fabulous day in Bangkok - flower market, Grand Palace, Royal Temple, canal tour (using a vast range of public transport options - great fun). The second day we left the city early in a very comfortable van and visited the train market and the floating market and then the highlight was the visit to the tiger temple. We had not made the booking to play with the baby tigers but Daeng made some phone calls and arranged this for us. Thank you Daeng for a great 2 days spent with you.

Found Tour with Tong through a recommendation in LonelyPlanet Thailand's 14th edition. The website was comprehensive and email contact was good and friendly, although response times to enquiries and booking initially, were rather slow.

We did a day-tour of "Bangkok most importantly", seeing the Grand Palace, a tour of the flower market, a long-tail boat tour through the canals and a dazzling ride through the Khlong canals followed by dinner. Our guide was Nang. She rang us up to confirm our booking and hotel pick-up, was very much on time. She spoke really good English. The tour with Nang felt like walking around Bangkok with your best friend from school days. Overall a very pleasant, entertaining and informative experience.

You pay for the public transport expenses and the entrance fees. The guide does not require to pay entry fees.

Definitely recommend this operator. You cannot go wrong with Tong.

We spent the most amazing day with Lily yesterday! My daughters (17 & 22) did the elephant bath tour and I have to honestly say we will remember it our whole lives. We are experienced travelers through Europe, South Africa and South America and we are thoroughly enjoying Thailand- but yesterday's tour was really special. And Lily was FABULOUS! Funny and knowledgable, her english is excellent- she really made the day a perfect one. I cannot recommend this trip and Lily highly enough!

We did the tiger temple, bridge over river Kwai & erawan waterfalls tour with Tong.

Our tour guide was Niwat (spelling?), he was fantastic! Very friendly, very experienced nice guy. He spoke excellent English and let us go at our own pace. He made it a hassle free experience.

Highly recommend doing the VIP morning tiger temple tour, feed the tiger cubs, play with the junior tigers unchained in their pen, feed them & wash them, walk the full grown tigers on a leash, watch the full grown tigers play & swim in the canyon.

Era wan waterfalls are beautiful & definitely worth a visit! Take your bathers!

My husband and i did the VIP Tiger Temple and Elephant Bath tours whilst in Bangkok, we had Charlie as our guide for the day and it was amazing! Couldn't have asked for a more excellent experience.
Tiger temple was fantastic, we played with tiger cubs, walked fully grown cubs, and had breakfast with the monks,an unbelievable experience.
In the afternoon we had the elephant bath experience where we got to play in the river with our elephant New Moon, a much more fun and memorable experience than just going on the typical elephant ride that you find around Thailand. Due to my love of elephants, this was definatly a once in a lifetime experience for me. I loved it! If you book a tour with Tong, you must ask for Charlie! Best tour guide i've had in a long time. His love of animals just makes the experience so much more special.
