The guide was really clear, kind and humorous as well, she was very knowledgeable. She was very helpful in answering questions and taking photos. The tour went swiftly and it was very comprehensive, we didn’t have time to wonder around. Very happy we did this tour at 8:30 AM, because it wasn’t crowded yet and the climate was still bearable. We really recommend taking this tour with this guide. Thank you P Prim!

Our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and keen to answer any questions that I had (and I had a lot). We were lucky that we ended up the only 2 on the tour as the other couple refused to wear the appropriate dress (must wear long pants). My husband had to purchase some before the tour started as his shorts were not long enough. Would highly recommend.

Our guide, Bond, was wonderful! She shared traditional stories and historic international relations that influenced the development of buildings, prayer sites and paintings. She’s very passionate about sharing the Thai culture and it was wonderful to learn from her.
