David D.St Louis, MO, United States
Patt was tremendous. She's everything you want in a guide - knowledgeable, fun, funny, candid, friendly and caring. I was part of a group of 4 adults and all of us felt the same way. For the cruisers like us, please note that it takes about 90 minutes to get to the long-tail boat from the port, which gives you all kinds of time to pepper Patt with questions, which she enjoys, and to learn so much about her country, people, culture, institutions and traditions. We would hire her again in a nanosecond.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your time to review David, really appreciated. Hope you come back with another cruise ship to Phuket so soon. Best regards, Jo

Fabulous day with Jo (Pattanhant)- competent, caring, professional, thoughtful & honest! Wholeheartedly recommend,as we had a wonderful well planned day! While our ship's tour with 40 persons couldn't get off James Bond Island, we not only toured the island but also arrived by private longtail boat. Jo also arranged a canoe trip into nearby caves & a seeing a local floating village. Although tour included lunch, we had brought our own, so was pleasantly surprised to receive a refund for our prepaid lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your time to review Sue, really appreciated. Nice to have 4 of you accompany to Phang Nga bay and good conversation on the way. Hope you come back to visit Phuket and us again. Best regards, Jo

Gwendolyn WongMandaluyong, METRO MANILA, Philippines
Wonderful fun day with Jo inspite of the changes due to not so good weather conditions! Though we had to forego our boat tour, she asked for our preferences and was able to devise a tour that made everyone (28 pax) teens to seniors happy! She has a great sense of humor, very candid and fun! She brought us to the most fabulous Thai restaurant ..best meal even vs cruise ship meals so we thought that that was her way of making up for the boat tour. Surprise, that she sends us a partial refund. love her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your time to review Gwen, really appreciated. Please send me our group photos that we took together to me as I would like to put it on my photos gallery and seems like fun photos. Look forward to see you again. Best regards, Jo

Raymond ShulmanUnited States
The Phang Nga Bay James Bond Island tour was excellent because of the experience to see how some of the locals work around you. They know tourism is their livelihood and they do what they can to make you feel comfortable. The scenery is outstanding and gives you a chance to get some salt air.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your time to review, Raymond. I really appreciated and was really nice day out with both of you. Best regards, Jo
Felicia SchnebergUnited States
We have used toursbylocals before and Jo ranks at the top. She is not only knowledgeable about the actual tour location, but she shares info about all of Thailand. To put everything into perspective, she uses maps, speaks fluent English, can discuss world affairs and all the while, she is personable, funny and down to earth. She took us to exotic locals via local means of transport, making sure we were safe & secure, yet taken good care of. Love that she didn't push us to purchase souvenirs. Excellent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review Felicia, it was fun with all of you. Funny pics will send to your email, please send me your. Best regards, Jo
Lynn BrooksUnited Kingdom
A pleasant young lady,who carried out most of the tour as advertised.Think she is better suited to younger clients who don't want a more in depth tour.
Seveena BurgessUnited Kingdom
Jo was brilliant, she picked us up from our hotel in a mini bus and took us on our tour. She spoke very well and has a great personality which helped make up enjoy it more. She provided water and chilled flannels for when it was hot and we have booked another tour with her for the next day. Thanks Jo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Seveena, really enjoy to spent time with you and Earl a lot. Best regards, Jo

Patthanant was a great guide. She showed us all the highlights. She adapted to weather and our preferences. She was fun and personal. She showed us some special places that we will never forget. We would recommend her to anyone coming to this wonderful part of the world!

Jeff BogdanUnited States
We had a great time for the 4 days we were in Phuket. Jo, thank you very much for all the time you took and for arranging everything for us. Everything went accordingly to our schedule, the airport pick up, the tours,etc... We highly recommend Jo's services and cannot imagine going to Phuket without using her services. All we had to do was relax, enjoy the sites, the food...etc... the elephant treking was something the kids will not forget,again thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review! Hope you arrived home safely. Send my regards to Sue, Jason, Steven and Ryan from me including you. Best regards, Jo

Patthanant- Jo is an outstanding guide. She is so organized and interested in making our tour special. We had a fantastic time seeing wonderful things, but mainly because we spent the time with her. She climbed into the caves and took great photos of us because she was right there. She got to know us quickly and directed the tour accordingly. She immediately became a part of us and we toured as a family, ate as a family and interacted as a family. She is truly WONDERFUL. We want her next time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much
