TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating my service in Phuket. Hope to see you again next time.
Lee is incredible. The best guide I've come across in my travels so far. We did a private tour, which I highly recommend. Being on our own boat was so much better than being packed onto a large tour boat filled to capacity. Lee also customized the timing of the tour to avoid peak times at all the places we visited + we were able to spend as much or as little time at each spot as we wanted. He surprised us with a lot of other amazing things, but I won't spoil that here :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much to Taylor and Lindsay for your feedback, this comment gave me a lots of energy to do increase better service in the future. Welcome back to Thailand always,when you wish to come. All the best

Lee was an absolutely fantastic guide. He was professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour he organised for us was perfect for our day in Phuket. We felt totally confident with Lee and the tour was a perfect mix of fun, relaxation and education. Lee took us to an amazing floating village where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone visiting Phuket, Krabi or Koh Samui. Thank you Lee!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Helen, Its great pleasure to meet you and deliver you a service. Hope to see you again in future.

Sejal PatelUnited States
We had a cruise stopover in Phuket and Lee was right on time to get us and made navigating the busy port very easy. Lee gave us a great feel of the area and took us on a boat tour away from the crowds. He also found us sticky rice that our daughter was craving and lots of mangos!!! Lee really made the trip fun and gave us a true "taste" of the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sejal, Thank you for you and your family visiting Phuket. I am so happy that you like the mango as well as my tour. Hope to see you again next time.
Lee Bancha is very punctual, knowledgeable, & courteous. Before the tour, he showed us a general map of the places we will be visiting and was also our timekeeper so that we won't be late. He is also flexible to stop by places not on the agenda when time allows. Although Koh Samui is a small area, we are able to fully make use of our time. I recommend him to everyone who visits Koh Samui.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment and rate my services. Hopefuly to serve you again in the soon future.
Fantastic!!! Best tour we have had! Very informative, very helpful, very kind! Thanks!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment, waiting for your return to Phuket in the future. All the best.
HIghly recommended. We had a wonderful day out with Lee. Lee was knowledgable, informative and made the trip a lot of fun for myself and my two teenage children. Lee was readily agreeable to amending the itinerary to meet our needs. Lee picked us up in an air conditioned van with lots of cool water and snacks. Our driver was a very safe driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, wish to see you again next visit.
Alice Van DykeUnited States
Lee did an excellent job during out tour, even after the times were changed at the last minute. He added in a couple tour stops that were not on the schedule because we had time. Lee is very knowledgeable about his home and answered all our questions. He also took us to a Gypsy fishing village where he knew the family's, and we got to talk with them about there life style that hasn't changed in 300 hundred years. Awesome tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment, waiting for your return visit to Phuket again. Cheers!!
Thomas SullinsUnited States
Lee was a great guide. We had a wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jan for you comment. Hope to see you again next time here in Phuket.
10 Star Guide - The Best in Phuket! Lee was the perfect Ambassador for my first trip to Thailand! He was kind and caring from the start, knowing that I was heading there for my Birthday week to celebrate in style. He was friendly, informative, outgoing, resourceful,timely, knowledgeable, funny, warm, kind and is a great photographer as well. He sent me my photo's within a day and wanted nothing for them. He is all of the items that we wish for in a guide when traveling to a foreign land.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment, can't wait to see you on your next visit. All the Best.

Lee was great. He was punctual & attentive. He had a great knowledge of Phuket & was most anxious to ensure that we saw everything in which we were interested. I would certainly recommend Lee.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment, Gabriela. Hope to see you again next time. Phuket Thailand always welcome you back...
Absolut perfect experience with our guide Lee! Very friendly & entertaining. Lee speaks perfect english and is very easy to understand, even for guest with poor english skills. He knows Phuket very well and gave us a lot of inside information and showed us many "hidden spots"
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ("-") Great pleasure to spent whole day with your family as well. Thank you for your feedback, and hope to see you again in the future. Thank you Jan
We booked a tour with Lee and I must say that I was really disappointed. I had high expectations since I have had very competent guides earlier from Toursbylocals.com. During the full day tour we didn't hear a word on the history of Thailand nor about the Thai culture. He hardly spoke when we visited the sites and did not provide any background on the things we saw. He slept for about 30 minutes while we drove. Working myself as a guide I found this unbelievable! We could have done the day without him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sara, I have to apologize for this unhappy and error tour that had been delivered to you and family. I am happy to refund your all money back to you and wait a confirmation from www.toursbylocals.com support team to contact you for refunding process. In my whole life from now I promise I will learn from this lesson. Thank you for your feedback
We booked Lee B for a Phuket Highlights tour. Lee B arrived promptly with driver and mini bus. We had some changes to the itinerary,Lee B accommodated those changes with ease. He was a key man on the ground, liaising with the various charities we wanted to visit.We arrived everything went smoothly without hitch. He is friendly and professional with a big warm Thai smile.He is knowledgeable of culture and history and has good English.The driver we had that day was very good too.We will contact Lee B again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ("-") Thank you very much for your feedback. I hope to see again in Phuket. ("-") Best Regards
Lee was great and is highly recommended. He was on time, provided interesting commentary and most importantly made my family (including 3 young kids) feel safe and comfortable to enjoy the unique tastes of Thailand and its highlights. Thanks Lee you made it special for us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Its great pleasure to meet your family.Ethan, Jake and Yael are smart and nice kids. I wish all of you all the best. Hope to see you again in the future. Thank you Lara.
