Full description

We provide you with a chance to see many local spots that most tourists never glimpse, no matter how often they visit the area. A fresh and different cultural experience, this is sure to be an unforgettable tour of Bangkok.

interesting tour,

A tour on which you get a lot of information and gain new impressions. We only booked this activity in the late afternoon of the lecture. The local organizer immediately contacted us by email to clarify the exact procedure. And everything went really well. Our guide Hai picked us up from the hotel. On the tour, he provided insights into Thai culture and everyday life. Driving along the Khlongs one found a lot of that again. We especially enjoyed shopping for our lunch at the market.

Great tour, well organized and wonderful guide.

We were met by Nui right on time at our meeting point. Nui is a great guide that shared practical information about the Thai culture. We really enjoyed visiting the temples, the market and artist village. It was really a backwaters adventure, off the beaten track. We got to mix with the locals and were even invited to eat with the family celebrating the passage of their son to become a monk. Very unique!

Unforgettable excursion

We had a super nice day that couldn't have been better with a nice guide who couldn't have been more professional. She explained everything to us well, took her time for all interests and spared no expense or effort to make us a nice day. There were hardly any tourists at the places visited, the timing was just great and there was so much on offer - a lot better than expected.
