The Guide was super kind, we were the only ones who booked this tour on that day so it was very private. At the end she took us up to a hidden roof top bar, which we‘d never have explored without her because it‘s so in between local hotspots. The rooftop was an absolutely secret tip with an amazing view and it was just perfect to fullfill our trip. We would highly recomend!

Very good Guide (Tammy): took very much time for us showing a lot of good things and very friendly and helpful :) highly recommended! Good tour, nice spots and very good staff!

Great experience. We have been to Bangkok couple of times, but we discovered a couple of new neighbourhoods during the tour. Can absolutely recommend it.

Was the best experience in Bangkok, the guides were friendly and funny! They give us great insiders!

We had a lovely day and saw lots! We had a lovely Thai lunch also
