What people are saying about Bangkok

Awesome experience! Beautiful pictures! Best tour!
I love taking pictures and I’m a solo female traveler, so I booked this tour, but I must say – It exceeded my expectations! The intraday turned out to be a whole day photo tour with photos taken at every step in many different locations. I booked a private tour, so I had an amazing VIP experience, which allowed me to take as much time for the photographs as I needed. It was really easy to work with Ian, the photographer. He was so friendly and attentive to all my wishes regarding photos and locations. He is a professional photographer, and I loved literally every first photo he took! I brought with me 3 extra outfits, and it allowed me to have 4 different looks with a different background. Ian spends with me 8 complete hours, even took me to the BTS station after the tour! I got over 200 pictures after just a few days(btw communication and coordination team is also doing a very good job)and absolutely loved ALL of them! I couldn’t be happier! I Recommend this to everyone! Thank you, guys!

Bangkok Instagram Day Adventure Off The Tourist Track reviewed by Anastasiia

Quite good, much better than anticipated
I thought that this would be a sort of tourist trap, but both the train market and the floating market were quite interesting and worth the trip. A little touristy, but less than expected. The guide was very friendly and handled the schedule quite well. He showed up at the hotel on time and we stuck to the tour schedule. All in all a good experience, and well managed.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market & Maeklong Train Market Tour reviewed by Miguel

Fantastic experience and even better Guide
We arrived a little late at the meeting point, our Tuk Tuk driver took us to the wrong street. But Sarah (I think her name is, my apologies if not) was very welcoming and happy to see us nonetheless. We all carried on in a clean comfortable and most importantly a air conditioned mini bus, where we travelled to the market and Sarah was full of really interesting information and very funny to listen to, explaining all kind of things. The market itself was an incredible experience with fairly typical market stalls, but the environment and experience was one in a million, it’s something me and the girlfriend really enjoyed and was a nice way to get out of a busy Bangkok for the day.

You can ask Siri anything about the temples about Thailand.
Seriously, our guide’s name was Siri. He had his talk, the things he wanted you to know, but was happy to answer questions on anything. He often responded with humor. He was good at estimating the amount of time you’d need to walk around. He offered to take pictures of you and we managed to get the picture that’s sure to be our Christmas card this year. Would definitely recommend going to
