I had a delightful day with my guide visiting Wat Pho, Was Arun, and Was Hong Rattanaram. I had a truly wonderful time with my private guide who was not only friendly, cheerful, and had excellent English, but was highly knowledgeable about Buddhism, the temples, and Thailand. He was also very good about educating me about different cultural aspects of his homeland as we walked between the different sites. He introduced me to Rose Apple, got me a gorgeous Thai calendar, and effortlessly guided me around the temples. Much appreciated and very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Great tour: informative, well-paced and fun

Brilliant private walking tour of the temples in Bangkok. Our guide Pim was very informative, delightful and funny. Our tour was well-paced, using alternative routes to avoid the crowds and she even took us to a less well-known temple where the King used to live, without another tourist in sight! Highly recommended!

Our tour with Amy was definitely better than what we were expecting. Amy is a beautiful lady and very knowledgeable and informative. She certainly took care of us. We are very happy that we went on a private tour and not part of a large group. Definitely worth the money and learnt a lot about the history of Thailand and Buddhism.
