Our tour guide, Mhom, was very knowledgeable and also had and excellent sense of humour we enjoyed. The Palace and temples we visited were not crowded due to COVID-19 and lack of Chinese tourists so we were able to take lots of photos of the amazing sites. The Thai food lunch was delicious. The longtail boat ride took us past the tallest Buddha which is under construction. Sadly construction is being delayed due to no exports coming from China currently. Mhoma assisted with directions for our return to our hotel and even accompanied us there, which was a welcome surprise. All in all- 5/5 and highly recommend to other travellers.

Our guide Kiwi was the best! A lovely lady who had so much knowledge to tell. She met us on time and we sat down and came up with an intinary for our group of 4. She took us to the temples and told us a lot of history and meanings behind the things we were seeing which we would have never have learnt by going without her. We took local transport to get around by tuk tuk the sky train and boats and had a tasty lunch in China Town. This was definetly worth every penny. Thankyou Kiwi and we hope to see you again in the future

We had a super nice and friendly guide who cared about all our needs and has perfectly mastered a difficult skill of conversation. Great places to see, great memories to keep.

The itinerary was good and our guide was good. We enjoyed the lunch and then the long tail boat ride through some canals.

Great experience- public transport without getting lost.
