Very well, we have had time to see everything and be able to take photos. We have been alone with the guide and he has been very nice with many interesting things to tell and he answered all our questions and took photos of us in the most emblematic places. They have come to pick us up at the hotel and have left us there. Very happy with the experience.

A wonderful half day tour with a tour company that provided a wealth of knowledge and local insight. Tour guide and driver were very personable and I would have no problem in recommending this tour to anyone visiting Bangkok.
