Winona did an excellent job. He was on time, has a wonderfully comfortable and clean vehicle and is just very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Thailand. Wiboon's English is very good. He had an orderly way about his tour which put all the information, historically and culturally, into logical and proper perspective. Wiboon was willing to alter the tour for us when we expressed possible elephant riding. We ended up not doing that but pushed on the more historical aspect. This was a great tour

This was the second of three tours booked with Win while staying in Bangkok. Win met us as agreed in the hotel lobby; he drove his own vehicle that was comfortable, air-conditioned, and had several bottles of chilled water. We had a drive of about 90 minutes to reach the sites in Ayutthaya. Lunch was impromptu where we preferred having only a smoothie whereas Win had a more typical Thai hot lunch. We enjoyed the scenic 45 minute boat ride and visit to Bang Pa-in palace before returning to Bangkok.

A distinguishing factor for our trip was our guide, Wiboon. He was on-time picking us up at our Bangkok hotel and offered to drop us off at the airport. Wiboon provided a vast amount of information about culture, history, and his personal background. We did several private tours and Wiboon stands out amongst a highly cheerful and welcoming group of people. Honestly, we cannot thank him enough for his candid, personal, and trustworthy guiding through his country
Nancy ParnhamUnited States
Wiboon took us on a tour to Ayuthaya. We had a great time. He was friendly and very informative. We would book with him again when in the area. Thanks Wiboon!
A wonderful day spent with Wiboon, meet local places only somebody can know who loves his country, excellent english speaking, nice and helpful, a real thai citizen, a representative of his country, we are thankful for the day we spend with him and hope to see him again, a full recommendation to Wiboon, spend your time with him if you are in Bangkok, its worth it!
Norman SeniorUnited States
We went with him for 2 days, the first in Bangkok. He is very fluent in English. We could not have had a better guide.
Scott ThomasUnited States
Wiboon is a terrific guide... so good at telling about the Details of the cultural era. Excellent storyteller... he really made the history chime alive for us.
Ted LeeHuntington Beach, CALIFORNIA, United States
Our group of 7 all had a wonderful time in Ayuthaya with Wiboon in a comfortable air-conditioned mini-bus . He's very knowledgeable with the history of Ayuthaya and planned the day seeing all the major attractions. I highly recommend Wiboon's tour.
Michelle WagnerUnited States
Excellent tour with a fantastic guide and driver. Wiboon provided a flawlessly executed trip to span the ages (10-75). Best day in Thailand thus far. Just the right mix of sights, history and fun (long boat), with an excellent lunch to boot. Thanks Wiboon!
Laura M.United States
Win was a great guide. He picked us up promptly at our hotel - the van was huge and very comfortable and he brought plenty of water which was most appreciated. He did an excellent job of showing us Aythaya and explaining the history and significance. After lunch at a local restaurant we took a longboat down the river to visit a Wat. The day was horribly hot and we realized at that point we didn't have the umph to finish the tour and so cut it short, but all in all it was a very positive experience,
We had a wonderful time in Ayatthuya with Wiboon as our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with the right amount of information about the different temples and palace we visited. He did a good job keeping us on a schedule. We had a great time and would hire him again if we ever come back to Bangkok.
Pamela NeubergUnited States
Our guide was very knowledgeable and his English was great. He arranged for a long boat ride part way back to Bangkok which was a treat. Also since my husband was fasting that day Wiboon took me to a very local mom and pop cafe for delicious PadThai. He was very forthcoming in answering our many questions about life in Thailand. We recommend this tour very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, Thank you very very much for the fantastic feedback. It was my pleasure to have you as my client. Hope you had great time in Bhutan and see you again. Cheers, Wiboon
Win was very knowledgeable and accomodating. Since we booked only a day ahead he made sure our trip went very smoothly. Two thumbs up!

Win was excellent. I hired him for 2 days of touring while in Bangkok. He was knowledgeable and full of interesting facts. His vehicle was first class and his pickup at the airport was easy. I would highly recommend him and plan on using him again when I return in December.

Marina MargolinaUnited States
very average as far as information provided. kids were not entertained and did not get the information that they found interesting :(
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marina, Thank you so much for the feedback. I am sorry that I could not entertain your 11 kids(5-13 years)with history of the centuries old capital of Thailand. Best Regards, Wiboon
Martha BarnesUnited States
Our Ayutthaya tour was a full and very informative day. Win certainly knows his history and the ruins in the Ayutthaya area were very interesting. We enjoyed hearing the stories associated with the history of the ruins. I believe the stories were what stuck with the grandchildren more than the dates- probably true for us also. But we do remember the time line flow Ending the day with a long boat ride and a Summer Palace visit, made for a wonderful last day in Thailand!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martha, Thank you so much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Warm Regards, Wiboon
Sarath MenonUnited States
Upon my request, Wiboon had put together a tour of Ayutthaya temples and also the Wat Traimit, Grand Palace and Wat Pha Kaew and Wat Pho in City. Indeed he charged us (2) a hefty $295. We knew that we need to pay for our lunch, surprisingly we were asked to pay for entrance fee in addition. I realize now (back in the US) that we were not taken to Wat Traimit as promised in the itinerary. Wiboon is indeed knowledgeable and explained well when asked. Not a recommended tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarath, Thanks for your feedback. Sorry for didn't take you to Wat Trimith because we were unexpected held too long in the Palace because of the religious ceremony for the passing king. After leaving the palace we had 2 temples to do, but we didn't have time to do both. Wat Trimith closed at 5 p.m. I think Wat Pho is must visit for you rather than Wat Trimith. For the tickets, I informed you early in our Oct 25th message that it not included in the tour Again, I'm sorry and please accept my apology.
Ramon Villa-RealUnited States

Michael LaRoccaUnited States
This is our second time we used ToursByLocals and once again we were very satisfied. Wiboon was on time and was very knowledgeable. We were 7 family members and were very comfortable in the 9 passenger van provided. Wiboon was very accommodating with schedule changes. We will differently recommend him to our friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, Thank you very much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Warmest Regards, Wiboon
Grace ZabalaUnited Arab Emirates
Wiboon is such a very knowledgeable tour guide. He knows the history of the place really well. Very patient in answering my questions and in taking my photos! He took for me a lot of nice photos! Also, not only will he bring you to spectacular historical places, he will also let you try authentic Thai food and coffee (iced coffee was really good and cheap!). I so love the boat ride in Ayutthaya. Very thankful I was able to get him as my guide in Ayutthaya. Will surely recommend him to my friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Grace, Thank you so much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Regards, Wiboin

Vera HelselUnited States
It was a wonderful tour. Wiboon did a fantastic job and we learned a lot about the earlier history of Thailand and the ruins in Ayuthaya as well as a lot of information about the current state of events since the Thai King had just passed away. I would wholeheartedly recommend Wiboon for this tour of Ayuthaya.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vera, Thank you so much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Warm Regards, Wiboon
Peter MartinUnited States
Wiboon was great. He was punctual, pleasant and patient (notwithstanding uncomfortably hot temperatures). We (my son and I) spent two days with him, the first in Bangkok and the second Ayutthaya. He linked what we were seeing in both places making our tours all the more interesting. We would highly recommend Wins to anyone booking tours in or around Bangkok.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, Thank you very much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Wiboon

Peggi ChuteUnited States
Outstanding! Wiboon is the consummate professional: our tour was well planned, he was able to fill every request, and spoke knowledgably about Ayutthaya and the history of the many kings. The air conditioned van was sooooo comfortable and welcome after walking in the heat and our driver was excellent. We were so glad we included Ayutthaya on our "to see" list, especially since Wiboon included the beautiful summer palace, arriving by a long tail boat! The tour was worth every penny; Wiboon made it so.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peggi, Thank you very much for the valuable review for my tour. I will miss you and hope to see you again in the future. Warmest Regards, Wiboon
Sonni RothUnited States
Our driver, Dada and Wiboon showed up on time, knew where to take us and made it a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sonni and Steve, Thank you so much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Wiboon
Teresa MacGregorUnited States
Wiboon organized an amazing day out. Ayutthaya's historical temples were awesome, but so was the more modern history of Bang Pa-In Palace. Throw in a long-tail boat road between the two, and you have a perfect tour. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Teresa, Thank you so much for the very nice feedback. Warm Regards, Wiboon
Excellent tour by excellent guide. Well balanced choice of sites and the long boat ride delightful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol Thank you so much for the nice feedback. Hope to see you again. Warm Regards, Wiboon
What a wonderful day trip! Wiboon made it so much fun to learn a little bit about Thailands history and the ancient kingdom of Ayutthaya, even for our three kids. The boat ride was defintely a highlight! And the airconditioned car a much appreciated treat after walking around in the heat outside. We highly recommend this tour and Wiboon as a guide: He is such a knowledgeable and fun person, and his English is excellent. Thank you, Wiboon, for making our stay so special!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Corinna, Thank you so much for the nice feedback.
