Tar was a brilliant tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the Palace and went out of her way to make sure we were looked after. She made the tour entertaining as well as informative and took lots of pictures for us so that we have many memories of a great experience. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to go to the Grand Palace as it is great to have someone with you who can give you all the information you need about the things you are seeing. Thank you Tar!

The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew was really worth seing, and I was very happy to have Tar as my guide. She was helpful, knowledgable and very attuned to the needs of the moments. We had lots of fun together! She told the history of the Palace in an inspiring way, including different aspects of art, religion and thai traditions. I apreciated that we also took time to sit down in silence in the temple. I feel very rich after this tour, even if it only lasted for two hours. A bonus was that the guide took a lot of great pictures and sent them to me after the tour, to keep as a memory or share with family and friends. Remember to wear long pants or a long skirt/dress! (Unless you want to buy one of the elephant pants that they sell just outside of the palace )

Nuch was an amazing, informative and very caring guide. The tour was very interesting and the building are very grand and beautiful, but the highlight has to be how knowledgable Nuch was. Make sure to bring water because it does get very hot.
