Michai was a highlight of our Bangkok visit. He speaks close to perfect English, he's bright, witty and knowledgeable, and showed us sights, sounds and tastes of Bangkok that cannot be found in any guidebook. Michai took time to get to know each member of our family (five total) and ensured he found things to interest every one of us individually. This really made a difference! We would definitely hire him again and loved all the personalized attention. Michai--if you read this, THANK YOU!!!!

We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Michai. We travelled as a couple and would never have been able to this tour in a bigger group or on our own. The lights of Chinatown were a highlight. I feel this tour gave us an insight into the way of life of the locals. Thanks Michai for an enjoyable evening.

We were really able to see the real Bangkok by night. We took out two teenage daughters. Ate at a local place, went to flower market, took a public bus and tuktuk. Went to the temple at night. Our pictures are amazing. Cant say enough good things about the guide. Super kind and knowledgable.
Kimberly GriffinUnited States
Michai was an amazing tour guide. He is extremely knowledgable of the city and took us on an off the beaten path tour of Bangkok at night. It was exactly what we were looking for. We were able to taste some amazing food that we normally would not have known to try! It was a pleasure exploring the city with him.

An excellent evening with a great guide who introduced us to the real Bangkok at night from Chinatown to Old Town with a secret gem thrown in for good measure.
Julie Warwick BrewerUnited Kingdom
A very enjoyable and informative tour, covering many aspects and areas of Bangkok in a short space of time. Would highly recommend
Ricky NanceUnited States
Incredible experience by a wonderful person!
Michai has a very good relaxed evening tour and takes you to places that are not on the regular tourist spots. Using different transport modes like the locals do, make it interesting, Especially using the canal boats takes a bit of adventure at first! Nice is also that he will respond to what your interests are. In my case, bringing me to a Chinese mansion, that he usually does not visit... . It's like visiting Bangkok with a friend. Highly recommended.
Michai is an authentic Thai guide. By that I mean that he shows you Thailand the way it is. Really enjoyed this tour, and going around Bangkok using various public transport. We rode the BTS, a canal boat, a few tuk-tuks, and of course walked. His itinerary is simple but an eye opener. Michai is open minded and will adjust to your taste and interests.
Excellent and laidback tour with Michai striking the perfect balance between being a guide and a friend to hang out with. All the lights of new Bangkok, drinks at Cloud 47 and street food dinner in Chinatown. Seamless.

Ive toured the world and love seeing stuff off the beaten tourist paths and M provided us with one of the best tours I've ever been on. Absolutely fun traveling on the different types of transport with the locals all over Bangkok and trying different foods. Michai gives you a locals taste of Thailand that most don't see. He has a wonderful knowledge of Thailand and great English. I'd highly recommend booking a tour with M.
Michai was excellent as a guide for an evening tour of Chinatown and surrounding area. Great company and we both enjoyed the meal together at T&K Seafood. Took me down some areas and lane-ways that I would never have tried on my own and showed sights from points like the top floor bar area of one of the budget hotels. Good command of English. Will definitely use Michai again when visiting Bangkok in future.

This was the best experience ever. We enjoyed every minute with Michai. We would recommend him if you want to see how people in Bangkok enjoy their free time. Thanks for all your info and insight Michai. Your the best.
Brad KardatzkeUnited States
The guide really knew his way around Bangkok. We were able to take public transportation and save money. He took us places that really made our first trip to Thailand and wonderful experience.

Michai, provided us a great night tour of Bangkok. Great street food sampling, canal boat taxi, and other forms of local transport. Visits to temples at night with no one around, night flower market and China Town were key highlights. For a nice night our of Bangkok, book Michai's "Illuminated Bangkok."
Rosemarie M.United States
I loved the illuminated Bangkok tour! I was traveling by myself and wanted so much to be out and about in the city at night exploring the nooks and crannies, but didn't know how to do that alone. Michai easily made that happen. He taught me how to eat my favorite dish: Pad Thai. We explored Chinatown and saw beautifully lit shrines, city streets, and canals. He is an excellent photographer and he'll show you how to get the best shot. MIchai made my night in Bangkok very special, indeed!
Michelle MillerdUnited States
We had a great time! We are 3 women, mom and her 2 adult daughters in their early twenties. Michai adjusted our tour a bit since we had already visited one of the places. We completely enjoyed walking side streets and getting local perspective and insights of Thai culture. Doing at your in evening was so enjoyable given the heat was more bearable and the crowds diminished.
Kevin HagertyUnited States
M helped us to tour like locals. He managed to cart us around very efficiently through both traditional sites (the tour of Chinatown was a highlight) and current hot-spots, while maintaining an ongoing conversation about the current Bangkok scene. M's touring style exposes tourists to a wide range of current scenes that coexist simultaneously in Bangkok. This guide and this tour are highly recommended if you want to really experience the city.
helpful and cheerful guide. most of the time he's quite funny! His spoken English is fairly good.
Gloria EkelchikUnited States
It was awesome to see the city by night. It's a different feeling enjoying the temples without the crowds of the day surrounding us. We walked a lot too. One of the highlights was driving around in the Tuk Tuks. It was like being in the 'Amazing Race.' Michai was a nice young man that took care to make sure our son had a nice time as well. The Pad Thai on the street resturant was great.
I loved my tour with Michai. He is knowledgable, friendly and fun. Traveling alone, it felt like I had a local friend. The conversation never stopped. The tour was at the beginning of my holiday. He gave me inspiration to see everything beyond appearance. There's a story behind everything and he surely knows it. I highly recommend this tour. It's blended with the top tourist attractions and things you wouldn't think to look at. If l could book him for other tours, I'd be happier.
Alan StokerUnited Kingdom
One of two trips taken with Michai with both being a great experience.As a guide he was caring to both our needs and I was delighted by the way he made sure the tour was taken at our pace. We would have no hesitation in recommending Michai as a personal guide.
We had an amazing time with Michai. From the delicious pad thai to the visit of Chinatown, everything was perfect. Michai is very nice and has a lot of knowledge. He answered every single one of our many questions about Thai culture. Definitely recommend this tour.
Dana deLaskiUnited States
What a great tour! While all the sites were amazing, Michai as a guide is really what makes this tour so great! His English is perfect and he is incredibly friendly and easy to hang out with. The tour is very flexible and Michai did an amazing job at altering it to what I wanted. He's prompt, efficient, and even if you've been to Bangkok before he shows you it in a way you have never seen. I didn't want the tour to be over! Amazing!
Joy MarshallUnited States
We had a fantastic tour with "M" in Bangkok. He was pleasant, informative, helpful, and he made our tour of Bangkok very enjoyable. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide for Bangkok.
Linsey ButtlerUnited Kingdom
Michai had a relaxed and informal style. He was clear and able to answer all our questions. The tour was interesting, varied and enjoyable, and being able to walk around the beautifully lit grounds of Wat Pho at night was a real highlight for me.
I recently attended a night tour of Bangkok with my family. Mishia was our tour guide. He had excellent English and took us to amazing locations! The tours were reasonably priced and we were all very happy! Strongly recommended!
poor offer for the value of money
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Christoph, Thank you for your feedback, we'll re-consider the right price for the offers.
Lawrence ArevaloUnited States
DO NOT hesitate to book this tour! Michai is awesome and the tour was great. Once you get to Thailand and you realize how inexpensive things are, you may second guess the purchase of a $130 guided tour. Well don't. Even after a long day of touring Bangkok on our own we still felt like the tour was worth every penny. Michai is such a wonderful conversationalist and a great guy that our 4 hours flew by. The food was amazing and he answered so many questions about Thai culture. So knowledgable. We loved it!!
Susan FeldmanUnited States
Michai is so easy to be with and so knowledgeable about life in Bangkok. We did two tours with Michai and found him to be personable, bright and so flexible. Seeing the tourist attractions at night without the throngs of tourists was very special.
whiles the tour was ok, i would like to have seen us do more sight seeing, we spent a lot of time looking at flowers, which could have been better spent looking at the local night life such as clubs etc. however, we all really enjoyed our dinner and the guides were great.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. We encourage travellers to make sure to let their guide know what interests them. We've asked Michai to make sure and check in with his guests to ensure their interests are being accommodated.
Michai was prompt and reconfirmed our meeting time by telephone message at our hotel on our arrival at the hotel. His photo made him easy to identify. He delivered exactly the tour that he described in the booking. We enjoyed the pace and time allotted and his attention to detail. Michai specifically asked us for our expectations in detail at the outset and made sure he attended to all of them plus some other minor highlights to make sure we enjoyed our tour.
Ann BellUnited Kingdom
This was a fantastic trip. We were first taken to the Railway station then to walk around areas of Chinatown, seeing all the stalls and street cafes in action. We ate at a restaurant on the pavement we would never have dared go on our own, all for less than £5 for 4 of us! We were practically the only westeners at the nightime markets. We jumped in and out of the taxi at places like a popular ice cream cafe and great view points, seeing Bangkok lit up. Thank you Michai from Ann, Alice, Rachel & Lindsay
James LinUnited States
Michai was prompt and very helpful through out the entire tour. He was very knowledgeable on the subject matter and helped steer us to must try delicacies. We highly recommend Michai and would love to have him guide us again.
