We took 3 individual day tours with Michai, so this will be copy-and-paste for all 3. Michai is an extraordinary young mind with great insight into Bangkok, the city in which he lives. He deftly accommodated his tours to our interests and needs as a good private guide should do. His love of the city comes through with an understanding of how its past, present, arts, politics, etc. He has also personally tried each of his recommended places (restaurants, spas.) Prompt & responsible - perfect English

Interesting tour, we really got to see other, "non-touristic" sides of Bangkok. Local bus-boat on the canals. Michai was a very initiated guide.The tour was quite a bit shorter than advertised, but maybe that was just due to misunderstandings between us.

This tour was excellent and M was a great host! We arrived in Bangkok from Ny and the isolator tour was an awesome introduction to the reality of Bangkok. We went through multiple poor areas. I was a little intimidate by the description, but everyone we met was super friendly. I would even recommend this tour to my mom it was so interesting and safe. We also took multiple methods of transport (water taxi, taxi, tuk tuk) which was a great intro to getting around bkk. Thanks M

We (3 ladies) truly enjoyed our outing with Michai, the tour is exactly what it described. we like the variety of transport methods, like the biking tour at the island, like our coffer break, the Eco friendly hotel. Michai is caring and knowledgeable, he looked after us very well. I would recommend this tour to all our friends.

We enjoyed our tour with M. Very much. He took us to places you normally don't see as a tourist. Amazing eye opening experience! M. Knows the peolpe who live in the slums very well so we felt very safe with him! Thanks for this very unique experience!

We took the "We are the Isolator" tour with Michai yesterday, which was the highlight of our time in Bangkok. This proved to be an insightful and well organised way to see parts of Bangkok that you wouldn't know existed. There were stark contrasts between the frenetic pace of the city and serene tranquil areas; as well as between the way people are living. Michai's fluent English enabled him to answer all our queries, expanding our knowledge of the history of Thailand and its bordering nations.Unsurpassed

Michai or M as he likes to be referred to was a great host for our first Bangkok visit. Although I am a tourist, i often like to go to places where i can immerse myself into the local culture and get a feel for the realness of a place. M was able to show us places that not many tourists go. While he was not limited to that, he was also able to show us the typical tourist spots too. What I liked most about M was that he thought outside the box, and was not your typical tour guide. He showed me sights

An interesting insight into the huge socio-economic divide here in Bangkok. Most interesting for me was the railway community and seeing how people live there.

MIchai was a great guide, spoke fluent English and definitely showed me another side of Bangkok which I wouldn't have found on my own. Highly recommended tour and guide!

Big thanks to Michai for the fantastic day. If you like to see Bangkok from the viewpoint of a local we ran only recommend this tour. We have been several times in Bangkok and all over Asia but this tour was one of the best we have ever done.

This is a MUST DO Tour & takes you off the usual tourist track giving a glimpse into Thailand as the locals live it. Local markets,slum areas,long boats & back streets where you are the only tourist; welcomed enthusiastically by the people you meet on the way - Michai lets you set the pace of the tour and is there to explain, answer & interpret any question you ask and directs your attention to the fascinating you might otherwise miss. For the photography fanatic, this is the tour of your dreams! MUST SEE
