Lynn our guide for the day, is an amazing lady. She was so patient with us and helped us out whenever we needed help. She looked after us during the whole tour. Let me take pictures of everything. Did not hurry us to finish the tour. Gave us so much information about everything we asked for. Took us to an amazing thai restaurant for really tasty food. best experience till date. Worth the money.

This tour was incredible. We only stayed in Bangkok for a day and a half and this fit our schedule perfectly. The cherry on top was our tour guide, Steve. If you can, ask for him. He made the tour fun, upbeat, and timed every part perfectly. Steve, if you see this, we love you!! - Miss Texas

This was our best experience in Bangkok.

Of the five days that we stayed in Bangkok, the four hour Cultural Tour of the Old Communities of Bangkok was by far our best experience. On our 2nd day in Bangkok, our Tour guide "Eng", took us to areas and neighborhoods that we never would have known about, and the way she explained their History, and their significance today, made the Tour so very interesting. Eng's intimate knowledge of the City of Bangkok and the other places in Thailand we were headed to added immensely to the value of this trip. We wrapped up our Tour with a fine meal at a small local restaurant - then set a small candle centerpiece adrift at Loi Krathong festival with Eng, We were very pleased with this Tour, especially with Eng, and recommend it to everyone.
