We had a fun 2-day tour with Tommy in Bangkok. He spoke good English and was quite articulate and knowledgeable about the area. He was very flexible and took us to the countryside and away from tourists where we visited many unusual sites including a boat ride through the floating market and through different villages. We went to the tiger sanctuary and Elephant Park. We had two great lunches at local outdoor restaurants. He had a great SUV with goodA/C and plenty of cold water.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cynthia, thanks for your review and I am happy to read how your words describe a 5 star experience. If there was anything that I could have done better I'm sorry I wasn't aware of this. Kind regards, Tommy

Tommy gave my wife and I a very informative 1 & 1/2 day tour of Ayuthhia and Bangkok. He hit most of the highlights ( in the available time) and was knowledgeable of the history and significance of the various sites. He was very caring for my wife who has mobility restrictions and courteous throughout. His choice of lunch venue was great, local atmosphere and good food. His driver gave no cause for concern in Bangkok's chaotic traffic and also went out of his way to assist us. Thanks Tommy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, thank you very much for your 5 star review and kind words. It was my pleasure to travel with both of you and to introduce so many 'things Thai' to you. Kind regards, Tommy

Tommy was a superb guide. He was very friendly, highly knowledgeable and coordinated limited time wonderfully well. As well as touring city highlights i.e. palace and wats/temples, we went for a private boat ride, tasted Thai cuisine and visited the flower market. Tommy's driver was excellent too. I would definitely recommend Tommy as a ToursByLocals guide.

Significant time restraints did not hinder Tommy's ability to showcase Bangkok's wonderful culinary scene. Using public transportation, Tommy took us to a half a dozen local spots where sampled some incredible taste sensations including a wonderfully seasoned fried chicken dish to a green papaya salad and ending with Thai sweets. If you are looking to sample Thai food, we would highly recommend Tommy at Tours By Local.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, thanks for the delicious time you spend with me. It was a great joy to see both of you enjoy so much of the Thai food I introduced to you. As one thing to make you fall in love with a country is it's food, i am sure you will one day return to Thailand for more. I will be here for you waiting :-) kind regards, Tommy.

Have used Tours by Locals in the past and they never disappoint. Tommy was wonderful. We only had one day in Bangkok and had a list of imperatives. He organized everything so that we got to do it all. He was entertaining and informative and knew how to get around to avoid the crowds. He even made sure to take photos of our group. Lunch was great and gave us time to relax. Driver was also very good and made the most of getting around the traffic and dropping us as close as possible to the sights.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Corliss, Thank you very much for spending the day in Bangkok with me and for writing your 5 star review about the tour.

It was very easy to work with Tommy. He responded quickly to questions before we even booked our tour, and he met us where he described outside the port gate. Our tour went well, and we enjoyed our time with him. We especially enjoyed the trip to the Nong Nooch gardens. Tommy arranged a private VIP tour for us with a guide and an electric cart to cover all the highlights of the beautiful gardens. DONT MISS THIS!!

My husband and I had a delightful day with Tommy. We hired him for a day trip to tour Ayutthaya. Since i selected the "custom" tour, I also wanted to taste a lot of local foods, as well. He was there at our hotel at the prescribed meeting time, our immaculate van had coolers packed with water, soda and beer and there was an ample supply of germ killers and cleaning wipes, Our driver was efficient and excellent. We learned a great deal about Thai history and--the most fun part for me--ate like kings!

We booked 2 days with Tommy. Pls. read my review from the first tour. We have had many private tour guides in the past but Tommy is by far the BEST! He is patient, thorough, punctual, and kind. Not to mention his contagious laugh!! Our family felt so comfortable with Tommy, like he was their uncle. We travelled in a luxury minivan that comfortably sat our family of 7.

Tommy is absolutely the BEST! We are a family of 7 from USA and we have travelled to many countries using private local guides. Tommy is punctual, attentive, patient, and thorough. He doesn't waste any time during the tours but doesn't make you feel "rushed". Our family loves sweets and Tommy would buy us sticky mango rice and sweet bread and desserts. Do not hesitate to book Tommy, you won't regret it. He truly deserves 10 stars!!

Tommy provided an excellent tour we had fun visiting various restaurants and traveling on various local modes of transportation. My only suggestion to Tommy is to include more of local places and less upscale prices as we wanted to explore more of local places.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As you've just arrived to Thailand a few hours before the tour my intention was to take you to all styles of foodplaces Thailand has to offer and to be safe. We started at a nice restaurant next to the river where young Thai people go.Then had the best Padthai in town. At Khao San we had some snacks and a drink and then we went to Bang Rak and Chinatown for typical streetfood and many kinds of snacks. I believe you tried it all and after this felt confident to arrange any meal in Thailand yourself.

Tommy is an excellent guide. Well organized, very practical and has an eye for detail. He needs just half a word to know what his guests mean. He takes you to places (coffee,lunch) that we would never visit, which we really appreciated. He also has good connections (or is just very clever) so you don't have to wait too long at several places. We had a great day!

I just spent 2 days with Tommy and it was wonderful. Tommy took us to all the important temples and markets & made sure we rode every kind of transport in Bangkok.Knowing we love food and to eat like locals, he took us to places we would never have found on our own! The food was amazing and better than any Thai food I've ever had. Plus for 4 of us eating (7 or 8 dishes) it only cost about $20 USD. I was on the hunt for kites and he went out of the way to help me find hand made ones! Thank you Tommy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Leslie, thank you so much for your amazing review! It was my great pleasure to search and find the kites for you. I hope they will not fly away on their own though.... However, that might mean I will have a chance to welcome you to Thailand again in search for new ones :-) Thank you again for booking my fun 2 days tour and I wish all of you the best in life.

We spent two days with Tommy and his driver. We saw everything we wanted to see and then some. He took us to a local temple, private long tail boat trip. Wat pho(excuse the spelling), Jim Thompson house. Fascinating local markets where we did not see another tourist. We went to a very good restaurant for lunch and a local dim sum restaurant in china town. Tommy know the local places to eat and he is a real foodie. Also gave us good advice on where not to shop. Ask him about where to buy pocketbooks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Penni, Thank you very much for your kind review. The 2 days were fun indeed and I am happy to know you enjoyed all the food tastes so much as well. The pocketbooks will be a lasting memory of Thailand and me I hope! Happy Travels, Tommy.

Our tour in Bangkok was amazing. Our tour guide Tommy went above and beyond. He was fun and extremely knowledgeable. He had a world of patience with our group of 10 and was always pleasant. We were surprised by Tommy with extra gestures (to include a souvenir gift for each of us) and a stop at the candy making place, mading our tour even more memorable. Tommy was professional and accommodated us 100%. We hated to say good bye and feel we made a friend. I can only highly recommend TBL!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda, Thank you for your very high rating review. I am very happy with this of course. I had 2 wonderful days with you and your family as well and together we had lots of fun and laughs. So t was kind of a holiday for me as well :-) I hope to welcome all of you again in Thailand! Happy Travels. Tommy

Tommy was ENERGETIC, ENTHUSIASTIC and ENTERTAINING! We had a great time touring Pattaya and Bangkok, seeing many of the major sites, but also exploring the food and flower markets and experiencing the local culture! Tommy was a wonderful guide and very attuned to what the group wanted to do, changing plans as we went. Kudos to our driver "Cair" for negotiating the traffic in Bangkok! We can highly recommend Tommy W. to anyone looking for a guide with a great sense humour for a memorable adventure!

Tommy was a great guide. He was very flexible and efficient in arranging a full fun day for for our family group of 4. His cheerful explanations and interesting suggestions of what we might see during the day made the whole day very special for the two grandchildren (11 and12) ttraveling with us. He found delicious Thai foods in markets and at a local restaurant that everyone enjoyed. Every choice was appreciated from coconut sugar to roast duck , with much more in between.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martha, thank you very much for your kind and wonderful review. It was my pleasure to travel with you and your family on this happy family day out of Bangkok! I wish you a great time in Thailand. Kind regards, Tommy

Tommy is the BEST! We booked him for two days based especially for his knowledge of the food in Bangkok-and he did not let us down! Personality plus, flexible, and open minded in taking use up on seeing traditional crafts, JJ market, sites, nightlife etc. Never felt pressured to hurry along-let us do our thing! Tommy really went out of his way to please us and we had a blast with him! Definitely will book him when we return!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James, You don't know how happy you make me with this review!! It was a great time that we spend together in Bangkok and I am grateful for your kind words and review! See you next time in Bangkok! Kind regards, Tommy.

Tommy exuded kindness,attention to every detail; historical/knowledge noteworthy and he instinctively knew what we wanted/needed. The organization/content was flawless. He exuded warmth, enthusiasm and a passion unmatched by other guides that I've used. His compassion/kindness knows no bounds treating us with dignity/courteousness. He is friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

It was my pleasure to take all of you around Bangkok and Ayutthaya on 2 days and show you all the hidden gems of my country!

Tommy was exceptional as a tour guide! He was very prompt, even though we weren't to meet him due to our disembarkment time. Excellent in communicating by email and in person(Either him or his 2 colleagues-Angmo and Olaf) He stayed with us the whole time through shopping and tours and explained everything. Bought us plenty of local snacks-delish! We even added an elephant tour the morning we met him...done! I highly recommend Tommy...you won't be disappointed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vicki, Thank you very much for chosing me to be your guide on your Bangkok trip. The 2 days spend were very exciting for me. Thank you very much for your 5 star review as it makes me proud to be a Bangkok guide on Tours By Locals. I hope to meet you again in Thailand one day! kind regards, Tommy

Our group of 4 truly enjoyed seeing Pattaya, Thailand through our guide Tommy's eyes. The van we used was extremely comfortable and roomy. The sights we saw were "local" and interesting, especially the market. I highly recommend and would personally use Tommy for any future Bangkok and Thailand tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ken, thank you very much for taking the time to write this great review about our trip to pattaya from your cruise ship! It was my joy and pleasure to show you all the local places and enjoy some of the best local markets as well. I hope to welcome you next time to Bangkok for more amazing discoveries!

Planning - Tommy covered the places we wanted to see and worked in additional sites above and beyond our list. He also helped us avoid crowds so that we had a great experience. Viewing ancient temples, cooking class, local market, tiger feeding - it was a perfect week. Stories - Tommy shared culture, history, customs... His knowledge and experiences brought a depth and perspective that is so special and personal. Courtesy - Tommy is polite and considerate. We felt cared for and comfortable at all times.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, Thank you so much for your amazingly positive and extended review! It was my pleasure to be with you for a short week and I remember every day as a happy and fun day together with you, your mum and her friends!
