    Amazing tour!!! Mr. Kusuwan is extremely knowledgeable and we found the tour to be one of the highlights of the trip. If you like detail, this is the tour for you. His grasp of history and culture is excellent and he will be sure to impress. Don't worry about getting hungry or thirsty, he knows where to visit along the way. I cannot recommend this more.

What people are saying about Sampeng market

The guide spoke perfect German and was able to answer all of our questions adequately. We did the tour on our last day and were able to answer questions about culture and religion that came up on vacation. Despite the fact that we have already explored the area on our own, we were given completely new impressions and an authentic picture was shown. We could also imagine this tour as a start into the holiday because everything from street food to tradition was included.

a bit skeptical beforehand, but 100% convinced. At the meeting point the good woman was very friendly on time, spoke very good German, was extremely competent, showed us great corners that you would never see as a normal tourist. In between food and drink deposits were included, so to try the lunch you pay for yourself. We would do it again immediately if it was another tour and we had a little more time here, highly recommended.

Sunee, our guide was fabulous. She explained a lot about Bangkok, its culture, its population and its history. We had the opportunity to create some traditional flower sets at the flower market! She showed us authentic places that we never would have seen by ourselves. We spent 9 hours with her and we did not get bored 1 single minute. We recommend it at 100%. Thanks again.

A great and very informative tour. Mr. Suwan Kusuwan speaks very good German and answered all of our questions and requests. We ran 12 km, but the time just flew by. We have seen all possible sides of Bangkok and can now understand the Thai people and their mentality much better. Thank you Mr. Kusuwan for this great tour. By the way, there were only two of us (plus guide).
