Peach was absolutely awesome. Was able to change the tour schedule to accommodate what we wanted to see and do. My wife and sister-in-law was able to enjoy the flower market and learning about how to fold lotus flower for the offering. Cooking class was also another highlight. Overall, the tour was great and was able to see a whole new side of Bangkok that we didn't know existed.
