Private tour Bangkok

Great tour! Saw everything and more! Our tour guide Jin and our driver were great. First stop was the golden Budda, then the temple next to the palace. A great lunch in a floating restaurant. I asked Jin if we could see the royal barges, she came back and told me the cost and she booked a private boat and we were at the royal barges in 10 minutes. Caught the boat from the restaurant and also got a 30 minute tour of the canals. After seeing the barges and the boat tour, the boat dropped us at the pier for the Palace. Jin's knowledge of all the sights was amazing. She was also our photographer as she knew all the best locations for all the shots. A fantastic day in Bangkok.

First met Jimmy on our first trip to Thailand three years ago, what a surprise to see her there waiting for us as we disembarked the ship on this trip. Having taken us to all the usual places last time, we opted for an off the wall, all local sites tour and had a great time. She was warm, friendly and hospitable. We had great fun and appreciated her flexibility. Highly recommend her!!

This was an excellent tour of the Grand Palace and several temples, including the Reclining Buddha. Our guide was Vanda. Her English was excellent and she gave us a wealth of information. She offered lots of information about her country's culture and history.

We were lucky to have a very experienced guide in Manob. He knew the best spots and how to minimise the effect of the crowds at the busiest sights. He took us to a lovely restaurant. It was a very satisfactory alternative to the on ship tour alternative.
