    It was a nice experience except for the Airplane Graveyard which is I think not safe for tourist plus the area seems not accomodating that's why we need to leave the place as soon as we got there. Other than that, it was a wonderful day for us in spite of the rain. The tour guides were very friendly and they brought us to a nice Thai Restaurant for us to try their food.

Just fantastic. Anyone who is in Bangkok and has time should not miss this experience. We saw so much and time went by in a flash. We drove many small hidden side streets and came to areas that you would never have seen otherwise! It was great fun and our expectations were far exceeded.

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.

It was wonderful exploring areas we would have never found on our own. Saw the flower markets, rode through China town and our guide was great.

Such a nice experience! Would recommend to everybody to try it, such a great way to see Bangkok, and our guide Olé made the trip really great!
