      Traveler Tips


      Go if you can and don't be surprised at the low cost, you will still see it all just have to pay for extras as I mentioned but it was not much!
      Expect to pay extra for admission fees and food, but still very good value.
      I highly recommend this tour as you are able to design it to see what you want to see.

      Worth every penny!
      Josh_W, Mar 2023
      Our tour guide, Apple, was absolutely amazing. Funny, clear, and very competent in leading us around Bangkok. It was very hot during our tour and Apple sensed that we needed to change our plans a bit to accommodate our kids. She recognized what we needed every step of the way and gave us a memorable day! Also, having a tour guide made getting around so much easier. She knew all the different transportation options and negotiate Thai prices for us. We would have paid way more in transportation without Apple.
      Highly recommended for a smooth visit of Bangkok
      AnneClaire_L, Mar 2023
      An excellent day with our tour guide Oil! We were able to see different sights, use different means of transportation that I would not have thought of using! The restaurant she picked was good too. Thank you very much Oil for your useful information and cheerfulness !
      Highly recommend! *Ask for Markie as your guide :)
      Scott_W, Mar 2023
      Markie was our tour guide and she was great! She was super flexible, knowledgeable, and helped us to see what we wanted to see everything we wanted to see in the time window we had.
      Unexpected Great Time
      Jovan_M, Mar 2023
      Honestly not what I expected lol. Although I read private guide I did not understand that transportation wouldn’t be provided and that we’d have to take public transportation and pay additional for the guides public transportation and entry fee to some places. BUT it was a grand time! Jean was wonderful… we had an amazing time in Bangkok during the layover. I’d say skip the temples, do your own research on places you’d like to see. Mahanakhon was not listed as something to do but we requested it and it was great. We took the river tour which is a must if you’re there when the floating market is closed.
      MOST Effective w a private guide for Bangkok
      lyyn, Mar 2023
      It’s A most effective with a private guide to see Bangkok & with explanations. Apple was our guide n she is fun n explains in good English. Highly highly recommended. We covered mostly those key places around the Chao Phraya .. so mostly temples n palace etc . But having a guide helps w the effective use of time. Apple is punctual n met us at our hotel n once we discussed with her what we want to cover, she plans the route n explain To us. Apple, Greatly appreciate your help.
      Learned most of the essentials
      Cynthia_U, Mar 2023
      Jean was very helpful and knowledgeable. We might never have gotten out of our hotel without him. We say things we asked to see, learned all about using public transportation to get around, and had some good food and shopping.
      Yuut the guide
      Perry_M, Mar 2023
      Yuut was our tour guide and he was amazing. He navigated Bangkok via skyway, subway, water taxi and tuk tuk to get the most out of our day. This gave us an opportunity to see all the major sites and not feel rushed and the day was terrific. However, the best part of the day was getting to know Yuut and his knowledge of Buddhism and the history of the country. We feel very fortunate for having Yuut as our tour guide.
      Bangkok overview in 8 hours.
      Alan_S, Mar 2023
      Tour was well laid out and covered many major must see attractions while providing insights and histories into same. Your was not rushed and the transportation choices were flexible. The lunch recommendation from my guide was exceptional.

      Our guide Apple is very experienced, knowledgeable, professional and friendly person. She looked after us and our kids all the time and made us feel very safe and comfortable. We strongly recommend Private Guide In and Out Bangkok.
      Excellent

      Excellent service very informative Peach was an excellent guide so much so that we used her again the next day . Keep up the good work peach
      Excellent tour guide
      shay_B, Feb 2023
      Excellent tour. Our guide, Yuut, was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, friendly and spoke great English. Learned a lot from him. We wished he was free to accompany us every day of our Bangkok trip! Highly recommend this tour.
      Great value customised tour
      ej_c, Feb 2023
      Oakky was my guide and he was great. He spoke good English. I opted to visit the three most important temples in Bangkok, Wat Poh, Wat Arun and Wat Phra Kaew. The tour involved using BTS and MRT trains as well as a private boat ride and a tuk tuk along the way. We covered a lot of ground along the way and my guide was informative and patient, adjusting along the way to suit me. We also stopped by to have a great lunch at a very reasonably priced Michelin starred authentic Thai restaurant. The initial price on Viator is reasonable but ensure you are aware what is covered and what is not. You will have to give transport and meal costs for the guide and yourself. Guides are generally exempt from entrance fees from most of the attractions. All in all the cost came up to arround AUD350 all in. This was reasonable in my opinion given what was covered for eight full hours.
      Wonderful historical and religious sites in Bangkok
      Cristina_L, Feb 2023
      Wonderful historical and religious sites in Bangkok! We learned so much about the history and religion of Thailand! It is a must do tour! Our guide took us to a traditional restaurant and we had a wonderful meal!
      Highly recommend this tour! Ask for YUT! He’s excellent.
      Scarlett_R, Feb 2023
      Yut is the BEST! He was personable, full of knowledge, and took us to the best spots in Bangkok. He also went above and beyond by making sure we paid fair prices for all types of transportation and he got us the best deals with goods of all kinds. I would highly recommend this tour. And ask for YUT!

      Tuk tuk round Bangkok and...
      Julie_M, Feb 2023
      Tuk tuk round Bangkok and river cruise was excellent. Choochai was an excellent guide. Crammed in as much as possible as only had a short time in Bangkok
      Ask for "JOKER" to be your Guide in Bangkok!!!
      William_W, Feb 2023
      Great Service!!! Tour operators worked with us wonderfully to get us picked up from Khlong Toei dock, after our ship's docking time changed! But one of the Best parts about our tour was meeting "Joker"!!! He's a Bundle of Energy, a Master of Bangkok Culture and History!!! He truly LOVES his job.and it Shows!!! He made the tour Just as we requested and also gave us Extra Experiences with taking us for a local lunch and enjoying it "Family Style"!!! We also got to take the Ferry, that was a Treat!!! Thank you "Joker" for such an AWESOME Tour!!!!
      Solid Tour of Bangkok
      Andrew_B, Feb 2023
      Our guide Pat was very helpful, knowledgeable, and spoke great English. She helped us build out an enjoyable itinerary for touring around Bangkok, and even helped find some vegetarian friendly food for me. She did a good job explaining the history and cultural context for all the sites we saw, and helped translate between us and local shopkeepers/taxis whenever we weren’t able to communicate on our own. Overall, I thought this was a great tour and well worth the money spent.
      Bait and switch!
      Bruce_B, Feb 2023
      Elena greeted us in the lobby on time. She then told us we were required to bring an additional 6,000 baht to cover additional costs. Such as 2,000 for the tuk tuk which I wonder if he got the money. A Michelin lunch? Not trustworthy!
      Response from Host, Feb 2023
      Shame neither of the 2 clients (same tour) who wrote both of these 2-star reviews read the product information before they booked. Clearly outlined on the product page before purchasing is the information about what is not included, outlined below. ============================================= WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED: ~ Entrance fees to attractions ~ Transportation fees (you are required to cover guide's transport costs while together) ~ Food and drinks (you are required to cover guide's meals if eating together) ============================================= We also contacted the client after booking, to be very clear with our customers, below is the information we send to them: ============================================= A friendly reminder; ~ Your booking covers guide service fees only. ~ This trip will be completed by public transportation. ~ Guides expenses like meals and transportation (while together) are covered by the client. ============================================= As you can see there is NO BAIT and SWITCH only a person who did not take the time to read the information sent to them and shown to them on the booking page before securing services. We received their list of attractions for the client, Guide Elena gave them an outline of the costs for the attractions they wished to see on their day with her. ============================================= Hi, Keen to explore Grandplace, Golden laying Buddha, flower market, China town, boat trip on canal. Can discuss with the guide on the morning. Looking forward to it Thanks George ============================================= Entry fees to attractions below: Grand Palace - 500 Baht per person Wat Pho - 200 Baht per person Canal Tour - 2,000 Baht per GROUP Flower Market and Chinatown - No costs This total alone is 3,400 Baht not including transport or meals. Guide Elena offered a Thai Michelin Star restaurant as an option, as it is a popular request of many clients, client didn't object and seemed happy at the time to make that selection. She did also offer at this same time another restaurant in the vicinity called, Wanglang. The total bill for lunch was just over 2,837 Baht, of which Guide Elena was a modest 355 Baht for one simple dish and two soda waters. We don't sell package tours, and the client is in control of the day, the guides job is to give options based on their selected attractions. I'm sorry to say that most complains come from people who've not taken the time to read the product information, so please before booking with us read the details and ask us any questions you might have, and we'll do our best to answer all of them.

      Ecxellent way to explore a city
      inna_m, Feb 2023
      It was a good way to explore the main city attractions . Peach took care of everything, arranged a taxi or tuk tuk to move between the places. She was really nice and tried to do her best for us , including taking our fotos whenever we wanted .
