    I wish I would have written down the name of our guide. She was excellent. She was early to meet us at our hotel. We went to the two temples first and then on to the Royal Palace. This is an excellent tour. The temples and palace are absolutely gorgeous. These are must see sites to see when you are in Bangkok. We started right at 8:30AM so not too early and were done by early afternoon. We opted to stay in the old town area and grab some lunch before trying unsuccessfully to find some tourist t-shirts. The guide suggested a really cool restaurant near the palace for lunch and even walked us over there and got us situated before leaving. The lunch was probably the best food we had in Bangkok. Hopefully get your guide can figure out who our guide was and keeps her busy because she was great.

    A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork!

My taxi driver was having a hard time finding the meeting place, so I called my guide and she met us at a place the driver knew. My guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and knew many of the vendors at both locations. She was able to get me some good deals.

The tour guide (Chan) was great. He had a good foundation of knowledge of the area and also helped me try some different food that I never would have tried on my own.

Our guide, Khun Tee, was immensely kind and patient and above all very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour - totally worth the money!

We loved this tour especially alone with the guide. Excellent organization. To recommend

Very nice and lots of room for adapting to our needs
