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.

Lovely Full Day Tour. Ideally to discover BKK.

A fantastic tour (tailor made!) with an extremly charming and handsome tour guide (Wes) made my stay in BKK even more exciting. Me Wes is doing a great job and is very passionate about his job. He has an extensive experience a in-depth knowledge about BKK. English is almost native. Ask for him, you will not regret it. We spent the whole day, has fun and learnt alot about the innercity life etc. Awesome!
