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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Elena, thanks for your 5 star rating! Kind regards, Tommy.

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 was FANTASTIC! He was friendly, accommodating, and flexible. He made our first night in Bangkok memorable by helping us navigate street food; sharing key insights on the city and country; and showcasing various elements of Bangkok, including custom suits, street markets, and nightlife. Tommy made our trip both enjoyable and truly delightful. There's an old saying that "no one is more cherished in this world than someone who bears the burden of another". Thank you Tommy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stephanie, Thanks you soooo very much for your amazing words and highly appreciative review! You've made my days :-) It was my pleasure to lead your group of 7 through many fantastic places, sites and food tastes on our 1,5 day trip! I hope to meet all of you again in Thailand! Kind regards, Tommy
