I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Nui, was excellent. He spoke English extremely well and gave us a wonderful tour. He really tried to give us the ultimate city experience. Not only did he take us to the specified places on our tour, he also took us on a city bus, a ferry ride and a ride on a Tuk Tuk. He took us to the local flower market and answered every question we had in depth. We really felt like we experienced Bangkok to the fullest.

We really enjoyed this well-designed tour of the highlights of Bangkok CIty. We got a good walking tour of Chinatown, an upclose look at the Golden Buddha, and a wonderful tour of the entire grounds of the Grand Palace. Our Tour Guide Amy did a marvelous job of keeping us moving through very large crowds at the Palace, while providing excellent explanations of the various sites we were visiting, including the Emerald Buddha and the Sitting Buddha (which is well more than expected. We had a very nice lunch in a local spot and also had time to see a show of traditional Thai dances. Amy could not have been more personable, caring and attentive. Highly recommend for those with limited time in Bangkok who want a great way to see the highlights in an airconditioned comfortable van with a very friendly and knowledgeable English speaking guide!!!!!!

We booked a six hour tour of Bangkok and were matched up with our guide Tony and a small group of tourists. Tony shared Buddhist sites, customs and did so with passion. He made the tour so much fun and offered the group options to customize our tour, improving the experience even more. We would recommend him to everyone. Thanks for a memorable day.

Our family of four went on the 6 hour city tour with Amy. She was fantastic! She told us so much about each site and our private van was very nice and air conditioned. She took a lot of family photos for us and was so nice. Definitely worth it! Don’t waste time trying to do it on your own. We highly recommend her and this tour!

I would say the tour itself is very good overall however having Mr. Tony as a guide made it GREAT. His energy and passion for his work is second to none. Thanks for teaching us so much about the Thai and Buddhist culture.

Although we did not sign up for a private tour, this ended up being one. Our guide was excellent, taking us to the temples and palace, explaining history and pointing out points of interest, taking our pictures, walking us through China Town, and answering our questions. Lunch was above the flower market and we walked through the market to our van (a bonus). They also dropped us at the King Power Mahanakhon at the end of our tour so we could experience the glass floor (which we would have missed if not for our guide. I wish I could recall our guide's name as she totally made our trip on December 7, 2019.

If you are only in Bangkok for a short period of time (say, 1 or 2 days) and are interested in still seeing some of the best sites in the Old City district near the river - this 6 hour tour is perfect! Our guide, Ms. Amy, was so courteous, friendly and helpful. The tour would normally have been for 8 people, but only 4 were able to make the tour because Pope Francis was in town and this restricted access to pick up the other 4 expected participants. This meant we had a very small and personal tour, and also, as we moved along faster than expected due to the small group size, she also took us to view a 30 minute traditional Thai Khon performance at the tail end of our tour - fabulous! The lunch was also wonderful. Please note that the tour is done at a brisk pace and you may not be able to linger as long as you might on your own - but it certainly covers all the key highlights as described.

This tour was hands down such an excellent, awesome, and wonderful tour. Our tour guide Mr. P Nui is such a rock star. Our tour consisted of going to see the Golden Buddha, Reclining Buddha, the Emerald Buddha, riding a city bus, walking through China Town, and the flower market. Mr. P Nui was extremely knowledgeable. He provided us with the great history of Thailand as well as Bangkok. Mr. P Nui was a very attentive, funny, knowledgeable, patient, and exceptional tour guide. This tour consist of lots of walking Mr. P Nui made sure that we had cold water to stay hydrated which was an added bonus. I highly recommend this tour, specifically with Mr. P Nui.

We were picked up promptly at our hotel and continued on an amazing day. Asking our permission we left the van and toured by public bus, public boat, tuk tuk, and back to our van. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the temples and palace. He provided a walk through the flower market, a stop for refreshments, and an excellent lunch stop. I absolutely recommend a private tour over a large group event.

My husband and I are very happy we purchased this tour. It allowed us to visit the most popular template and the palace. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. He made us participate in seven ceremonies during the tour. We love the sights and the interactions. We recommend it.

Mr. Nui was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and explained many of the Thai traditions. He took us on a local bus through China Town, then walked us through the flower market to a boat for our trip to the palace. He supplied us with water throughout the tour and we would highly recommend this tour and him. Thank you Mr. Nui. Tim and Debbie

Our guide Nui was fantastic! He gave us tons of information, explaining everything and answering all questions. He never rushed us and even added a few experiences and places on the tour that wasn’t scheduled. Very friendly and informative, would highly recommend this tour, especially if you can request Nui.

Mr.Nui was a superb guide - very knowledgeable, entertaining and always offering to take photos of us. He also took us for a ride on a local bus and an express boat on the Chao Phraya River for the "local experience" which we really enjoyed and appreciated. Lunch was traditional Thai food which we enjoyed.

Our tour guide Tammy spoke great English and was super friendly. She provided tons of history as we entered each temple and she explained traditions. There was just 1 other couple so the small group was perfect. Lunch was delicious in Chinatown. Jan. 1 was a religious holiday. EVERYONE was visiting the Grand Palace. But she made it exciting and the cooler weather made it more comfortable. Our driver was pleasant too.

What an amazing introduction to Bangkok! Our guide, PNui, was so helpful and knowledgeable! He managed to deliver the astonishing history of this town and give us an insight of the Thai culture in such a way that we instantly connected with the city and the Thai culture in general. Would definitely recommend this tour and if you can request THIS PARTICULAR TOUR GUIDE DO SO! You will not regret it!

I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see all of the main temples and the Grand Palace. Our Tour Guide, Amy, really made this trip the best that we did in Bangkok. She was waiting for us in our hotel lobby on time, with a welcoming smile. Amy was so knowledgeable about everywhere that we visited and provided all of the background information about each of the places that we went to. She took us to a fabulous, traditional restaurant for lunch, and this turned out to be the best Thai food that we experienced when in Bangkok.Throughout our tour, Amy was continually concerned about our welfare, providing us with bottled water on a regular basis, which was great as it was so hot. All of the temples get very busy, but our Guide ensured that we always had the best spot to view the temple that we were visiting and took lots of great pictures of us on her own phone, which she then emailed to us, after our tour. How incredible is that! We never would have got so many excellent photos and wonderful memories to look back on without Amy's help! She turned out to be our best Guide!Definitely give this Tour a go, as I am sure you'll not be dissapointed.

Nui our guide was amazing. We were picked up from our hotel on time. The van was air conditioned and Nui started telling us the plan for the day. He took us to great places, took photo's for us etc. Nui stopped often so we could cool off in the shade and kept on supplying us with cold drinks and moist cold towels. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bangkok. Nui you are a great guide and we learnt a lot from you. Many thanks for giving us a great day. When next in Bangkok we will definitely book another trip with Nui. Thanks
