A Great Day!
Our guide was May and she was fantastic! Efficiently, friendly and a mind of information that wasn’t boring at all! (some tour guides are)
She was considerate of the midday heat for us and we had a really enjoyable day seeing the Temples of Bangkok.

Excellent guide and sight seeing
We booked this private tour and received a long list of places to visit , which was a little confusing for us, not really knowing the distance between sites or time needed at the different attractions.
Our concerns were put to bed when we met out guide Bella. She was extremely pleasant, welcoming and helpful. She discussed with us where we would like to visit and made suggestions on where to visit.
Throughout the day Bella give us lots of information of the places we visited and also about Thailand.
We visited The Grand Palace, The reclining Buddha, Wat Arun, Golden Mount, The Flower Market and Jim Thompson House. But the choice if attractions is entirely down to you.
If you get a guide as pleasant and helpful as Bella we would certainly recommend this trip.
Be aware we did do plenty of walking, maybe due to our hotel location, not sure if there is an option to take taxis.
We loved the experience and found walking through the areas that the Thai people lived and worked added to the experience and thankfully did walk, as opposed to transport.
A definite must if you want an experienced guide to give plenty of information

Experience was great!

Num was helpful in finding some additional places to visit on our trip in Bangkok. She was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in allowing us to make the most of our experience. We especially appreciated her suggestion of taking a long tail canal boat ride which helped us to experience and learn a little about a typical Thai community. Overall, it was a great experience and great day! This is a great tour if you are looking for a custom day to see a variety of parts of Bangkok, with some help from a local.

Amazing Day With Guide Kim
Feb 2020
We had an amazing tour with our only one full day in Bangkok with Kim, we saw so much, and we're so happy that we took this tour rather than try to see the sights on her own, because that definitely would not have been possible, Kim arranged transportation to the temples and we also took a tuk-tuk instead of walking a far distance to another area. We really enjoyed the boat ride to Wat Arun, and seeing that side of the river. Kim provided so much detail into the history of every site that we visited, he really knows everything that there is to know! we would definitely recommend this tour if you're trying to see a lot in a short amount of time, especially if you just have a day or so in Bangkok.
Note that you will need to pay 2700 Baht in cash before the day starts, this was used for the transportation, entrance fees, etc. It was a bit more than we expected to have to pay.
We also needed to pay extra for the food that we ate at the floating market so make sure to have some spare money on you. Definitely wear good walking shoes as you will be walking a lot, and make sure to bring lots of sunscreen!
Overall this is a great tour and highly recommend it, you will be especially lucky to get Kim as your guide!

Misleading
Feb 2020 • Couples
The guide was great, really nice, well educated and knew her stuff, 100 points for her. Issue here is how the company has to reword the description of the tour. Makes you think like you are getting picked up and transported. Not the case. So be prepared to walk like a MF unless you state otherwise from the beginning.

Again, the guide was excellent. Company just needs to really drill down on what you can accomplish in a day and not providing you with a ride.

Dear hudson1gua, We appreciate and value your review about our custom tour service and will certainly keep improving our service. We are glad that you were happy with the guide and suggested us to improve on rewording tour description which misled you. We apologize for this misleading and will recheck the tour description and try to make it as concise as possible. In the current description of the service under the "Important Information" section, it stated that the service excludes transportation. You will be picked up and dropped of by tour guide. However, after the booking guest can inform us if they would like to book optional private car. We can provide the service as well. As the name suggested "In and Around Bangkok Private Tour Guide with Custom Experience," this is personalized and customize-able tour which guests would be able to create their own and unique itinerary. We can also suggest guest an itinerary based on preferences. This custom tour requires a little bit of research on delegates' side about attractions for best travel experience. During touring in Bangkok, you can take public transportation such as taxi, Tuk Tuk or any suitable public transportation from site to site to avoid walking. However, if the traffic is congested, walking often is the best solution for the situation. Or taking sky train or subway if they're available nearby to avoid the congestion. Tour guide will suggest delegate about what type of transportation will be best for each situation. Delegate is in control of all the decision on the tour. This tour is fully personalized experience which requires a little research about attractions. We also provide suggestive itinerary for travelers who need it. The tour excludes transportation as stated under "Important Information" but we can provide private transport as optional if it's preferred. Once again, we appreciate all comment, reviews and feedback from our customers. Kind Regards,

White Glove Service with Mr. Kim
My girlfriend and I made our first trip to Thailand this winter. Bangkok was our first stop and we only planned 2 nights in the city and had really just 1 full day to get a feel for the city and do any sightseeing. We booked a few days before and Mr. Kim was the one who contacted me before the day of our trip. He offered to meet us at our hotel the day before our trip to help us plan our trip, discuss options, and cover pricing for transportation and activities. We couldn’t sync up the day before so we ended up spending some time earlier on the next morning to do this, before our trip started. I had mentioned he wanted to see the highlights, including the grand palace and floating markets (as it was on the weekend) and Mr. Kim took that input and created a plan for the day.

We were so surprised how planned and prepared Mr. Kim was the next morning as he waited for us in our hotel lobby. Definitely exceeded our expectations. I will note that we were caught a little off guard with sticker shock of the costs for the day. Part of this was our fault for not being able to sync up and discuss all of this before the day of the trip. We ended up trusting Mr. Kim’s plan for the day, and he did not disappoint! With all of the activities we did (city shrine pillar, grand palace, temple of reclining Buddha, wat Arun, floating markets lunch, and river boat trip), it was a long day from 7:30 am - 3 pm and cost about $140-$145 per person, including the tour price on trip advisor and all activities and food. I’d call this white globe concierge service kind of day. We had a driver take us to the grand palace in the morning from our hotel and return us to our hotel at the end of day from the floating markets.

Mr. Kim was incredibly knowledgeable and skillful in navigating the city. We felt engaged throughout the entire day while also being left space and little bits of time to independently explore and walk around some the areas Mr. Kim took us. Mr. Kim also doubled as a photographer and knew all the best places / angles to take photos at the sites he took us. Honestly, i felt like we had an edge on all other travelers/visitors having mr. Kim with us. We breezed past lines and other tour groups, saw unique things that onlookers were curious as to what Mr. Kim was showing us, and more. We were a little upset that we couldn’t start later in the morning, since trip advisor allowed us to book a specific start time for the trip—but don’t be fooled by this—your tour guide and you will work on deciding the start time together based on your plan. And although we were upset at starting very early, it was worth it, and there was no way we’d have been able to have the seamless and memorable day we had without trusting in Mr. Kim’s advice. A prime example of having the “edge” with Mr. Kim is waiting at the grand palace entrance was a line of 50 foreign visitors waiting to enter and Mr. Kim cuts the line with us to line up first in a second line: “there’s two lines” he says. No one complained and seemed like no one knew, and so we were first into the palace (making great for photos). Also, mr. Kim handles all the admission fees, which expedites things.

Lastly, my girlfriend and I booked a dinner river cruise that evening. Mr. Kim provided suggestions but we ended up booking a dinner cruise through our hotel. He ended up joining us that evening to accompany us to the cruise and on the cruise as well. This was a nice touch and not intrusive (he had his own table/area on the boat). During the dinner cruise, he surprised us with flowers (for me to give my girlfriend) and helped us get a photo-op on the boat. Photos didn’t come out great at night but the gesture was good fun and a welcome surprise for us on our second night and full day in Thailand. All this was at no charge to us.

Overall top-notch service from Mr. Kim. Worth the price we paid.

WORTH IT
First and foremost, we must give infinite praise to our kind, intelligent, understanding and experienced guide James. He gave us insights you truly will not find with audio books or friends or Google. Beyond his vast expert knowledge and very high level English, James also knew all the very best photo spots at each of our destinations. Truly an experienced guide and a gentleman. He also took care of us when using Tuktuks and other transport. He really did get us such a good deal that when I tried to haggle with other drivers without him, they just wouldn't budge.

All in all, this experience was 100% worth it to me as a foreigner who doesn't speak a lick of Thai. Don't worry about covering costs at major sites either as Thais have free access to all the temples and palaces since, well, their taxes paid for it I presume. James not only deserves praise but I would even nominate him for Nobel prize or other type of medal.

Thanks so much James! You made our first day in Bangkok so awesome!

Dont worry about the cost my friends, just book it and don't worry about a damn thing***!

***You at least need to have a vague idea of places you'd like to visit as this tour is custom to your own interests so do at least a little research then go at your own pace!

Thanks again James!!!!
