My guide was absolutely amazing. Trin Dew really made me feel like I was touring Bangkok with a friend. I got way more than my money's worth with this one. Dew was extremely knowledgeable, kind, courteous and fun. One of the things I like the most about this tour was that my guide listened to what I wanted. I told him that wanted to see as much as of Bangkok as possible with the time we had. He made sure of that. I don't mind walking or taking public transportation. He made sure that I used every form of public transportation Bangkok had to offer plus we walked a good twelve miles. I really feel like I got to see the best of what Bangkok had to off all in one day.
Our guide, Joker. was there at 6:30 am when we arrived by train to Bangkok. He was super friendly, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I normally wouldn't do something like this as I sort of have a DIY attitude. I figured I only had one day in Bangkok and it would be worth getting the most out of the day. That's exactly what happened. Joker used EVERY minute effectively. He charted a course through the city, hitting unknown spots on the way. At the grand Palace he explained things we NEVER would have understood without him. We used the river boats as public transportation and ate in the street market, both of which kept our costs down. I really can't say enough for the joker. He was an amazing guide. THANK YOU JOKER!
Our guide Elena was amazing. She was very friendly, personable and engaging. We let her know where we wanted to go and she also suggested other places. She arranged for a longtail boat ride which was quite nice. We toured the King's Palace, the Jim Thompson House, Wat Pho home of the Reclining Buddha, some other interesting spots and we even asked about tailors. She suggested and tailor which we went to while on the tour because it was beginning to rain. The tailor, James International made a suit, three shirts, a woman's suit and dress in about two days. She gave us some advice along the way. We took various forms of transportation during the tour but this made it great fun. The entire tour she talked about Thai culture and provided us with history of the area. Spending a day with Elena became like three friends hanging out. We enjoyed her company and she did a great job in ensuring that our tour was one of the best experiences that we had in Thailand.
She really went out of her way to make sure that a private tour
We were met by our local guide 'king' who was spot on time. He was happy to follow our pre planned itinerary and facilitated our tour perfectly, making sure we saw the things we wanted to see wit a minimum of fuss. This made sure we were able to to and see things we would not have had the confidence to do on our own, this also made sure we paid the correct prices.
We caught the riverboat and followed this up with a long tailed boat trip to a fantastic market where we enjoyed a great lunch of local fish at a great price.
I cannot recommend this young man highly enough, very good English, great sense of humour and extremely helpful.
Awesome tour. Swai was an exceptional guide. Very knowledgeable not only about the sights themselves but also history and culture. Great learning experience. Would highly recommend.
Had a brilliant day with my excellent guide Nina! Got to see exactly what I wanted given the time period Props to Nina for going out of her way to get to me, and to stay with me longer than the time needed! and had an amazing time doing it. Very informative and good for getting around town easily and cheaply. Highly recommend asking for Nina she's hilarious and I had a brilliant time truly. Thank you!
Was a great tour with guide and friend Jean! Took us around and patiently assisted with all queries! Saw the temples, did a boat ride and lunch!
Great way to learn city. Has a book of great ideas or will do whatever you want. Would recommend to any who is traveling alone, or with a small group!
Our tour was great. Dew was very nice, helpful and polite. The best part of our tour was the trip on the long boat and feeding the fish.
Great experience with expert tour guide!
Jene, the guy who assigned to our trip was very nice person.
His expertise as a tour guide was made our trip become wonderful experience.
Thanks to him, we enjoy learning background and history of each of temples and Thailand royal family.
We could visit and see any sightseeing spots, but a great tour guide will make the visit more wonderful and fruitful experience.
It's worth to try!!
One of the best fun days of my stay. My guide a young gentleman----FANTASTIC met me at the hotel and we took the skytrain to the Chatuchak Weekend Market early in the morning, to avoid the crowds. We went to section 8 Crafts and I purchased some very nice souvenirs for great prices and roamed around to see all the sights. A must do if you are in Bangkok on the weekend. We then went by cab to Chinatown which was just jammed with people for it was the Saturday before Chinese New Year. After a brief stay we went by cab to a very nice shopping mall for lunch of American burgers and fries and shopped there for a while and then back to the hotel by skytrain. My guide and I cannot remember his name was fantastic helping me bargain for things in the market and carried all my goodies that I purchased and had a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend doing this and having a private guide to help you. FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keng gave me a great day in Bangkok. We saw everything I wanted to see, which included some tourist sites and local places like markets. He was very knowledgeable and easy to spend time with. We got around with the Sky Train, walking, taxis, and tuk-tuks. It was wonderful to have someone who could not only give me loads of information, but help to navigate this busy city.
What an experience I had in Bangkok! We explored this magical city by eating our way through a river market, having lunch with Wat A run in the distance, motorcycling through a back street, and ending it with shopping at Chatuchak Market! I loved the day and we filled every part of it with sights and tastes and people that cement why Bangkok is such a special place.
My guide is what made this tour a 5-star tour. His name is Wallop Kittiwititkun and goes by the name 'Joker'. He was agreeable to everything I wanted to do and see including walking the entire day in 95 degree fahrenheit heat and humidity. He was affable, humorous and a wealth of information. We crafted together the day I most wanted and then perfectly executed on our plan.
I asked our guidE Dew to take us on a walking tour of Bangkok BUT I did not want to go where tourists usually go. She gave me one of the best walking tours I have ever had and trust me I have taken a lot in Asia over the last five years. Via tour has offices around the worLd and have used there services in Aasia Europe and USA. have always been happy with the quality of guides they work with . But this was one of the best ever She arrived on time and actually stayed with us past the ending time. We visited temples that were off the beaten track and so enjoyed I can only suggest if you can ask for a guide that Dew is on your list
Nom was an excellent and knowledgeable guide regarding the sights we saw. However, we were unable to fill the allotted time with enough affordable sights to see, so perhaps a half day tour would have been more efficient.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I wasn't prepared with a list of places to visit, assumed the guide would offer suggestions. So unfortunately, we spent 25minutes coming up with an itinerary, then did not have enough activities to do to fill the entire day without costing overtime. Very expensive day when factoring in the costs associated with paying for the guide's lunch, taxis, trains, boat rides and admission to attractions.

I've done tours via Viator all over the world. This tour was just a bit below average. Although the tour guide was nice, she was not very informative regarding history and details about places we visited.Several of the places visited were tours self guided whereas I was directed to go through the buildings myself while the guide waited for me outside. Also, the guide would walk way ahead of me most times which was very frustrating. She almost lost me in some of the crowds. As the day wore on, her energy seemed to wane. She was not as vivacious as when we first started. It seemed she was more concerned about finishing the tour. Because I am very generous, I tipped her problalby more than most people would...However, I would not recommend this private tour for the money it cost. The tour ended up being mostly having someone helping you get from point A to point B...A driver could have done the same thing for me.
