Wes, our Tour Guide, was exceptional. He was knowledgeable, fun and flexible! We ticked all the boxes we wanted to and learnt a lot about Thailand and its history (although both of us were familiar with Thai culture). The lunch was also a highlight. We probably wouldn’t have gone there by ourselves, but it was definitely worth it! True authentic and tasty Thai cuisine that tickled our taste buds in the right place. Great experience that we highly recommend! Keep rocking the tour Wes... you’re a star!

Everything worked great, from the transport to the tour. My guide Ms. Gigi spoke great English, so understanding and asking wasn't a problem. The tour itself was very interesting and informative, there was also a small excursion into the Thai kitchen, which I found very interesting. On the way back there were a few tips on what I could still watch in the evening, very nice. All in all, a clear recommendation.
