We are a family of 5, three kids ages 8, 11 and 13, and we decided to forego the usual tourist sites and instead go with Michai to see the "other side of Bangkok". So glad we did! We had an absolutely fantastic time! Michai picked us up at our hotel and off we went, by train, boat, taxi and tuk-tuk through parts of Bangkok we (for the most part) would never have even thought about visiting. Michai is an excellent guide, clearly knows what he's doing and adapts to circumstances and his guests. 5 stars!

Michai was beyond incredible!! We had a spectacular day and was fully entertained!! We saw things we never thought we would see and saw things as a local!! We had lunch at someone's home and it was delish!! By far one of the best tours we have had - and we travel a lot!!!

Best tour guide we've ever had! Michai is charming and street wise with a deep knowledge of the history, culture, and religion of his people. His command of English is impeccable. He can have deep discussions at a college level. The tour was well timed using many types of public transport with virtually no wait time. We saw many neighborhoods, cut through back alleys, explored the street markets, dined in a family home, enjoyed the canals by boat, and finished at a roof-top bar overlooking the river.Do it

Michai was great! He knows his city inside and out and clearly has a passion for sharing his optimistic attitude. I loved this tour as it felt like a accelerated course in Bangkok past and present, with none of the bookwork. We had great food, but I really love to learn about the revitalization efforts in certain areas, and how the city is making strides to hold onto their past and support all their citizens, migrant workers as well as natives. I saw so many memorable neighborhoods, it was the best!

Best tour we have done. Michai was amazing. We went to back streets that many locals would not have been. Experienced local foods with locals, "M" explained everything in great detail. Ate at a local family home. We could not have experienced this any other way & could not have been better. No temples, no religion, public bus experience, little China, Little India & much more. A must do....We will recommend to everyone Thanks "M"....you made Bangkok AMZAING

What an amazing day we had! We felt like the tour was designed especially for us! Roaming the streets and alleys of the old Bangkok, & China town, cruising the canals that felt a million miles away from Bangkok, lunch in a cute little family house all with Michai who added so much knowledge and enthusiasm to our day! It would be fair to say that we felt like he LOVES his job. Thank you so much Michai!

This tour was truly one of the highlights of our recent vacation in Thailand. M has a fantastic personality, is patient, kind, funny and caring. He entertained us all with great information and stories and we truly got a behind the scenes look at Bangkok. It's not an easy city to navigate and he made it so easy and fun! We would have liked to do a second tour with him! My kids declared he was the best guide we have had on any of our vacations and we have had a lot! Highly recommend!

This was our first day with Michai and he put us at ease right away. His english is exceptional and the long car ride did not bother us as he is a gifted conversationalist. The floating markets was again much more local than some of the others closer to bangkok. If you are adventurous: we tried beetle leaves, crickets, silk worms, noodle soup from the local grandmas on their boat. We even stopped in someones stall and he asked if she could teach us how she made these leaf woven fish mobiles!

We absolutely loved this tour! Michai is very good at taken you off the beaten path while still making sure you see the quintessential ayutayha temple. The lesser known temple as he said is underrated. It was beautiful with no other tourists in sight! Very cool. Lunch was delicious and Michai's sense of humor, knowledge of the history and easy going manner make it a very enjoyable and authentic excursion.

Michai has been absolutely outstanding and customized a fantastic tour off the beaten track for us. We experienced Bangkok as the locals do even with lunch at a private home. Our boys (12,14,16) loved every minute and learned so much. Thanks "M" for your flexibility and making our time in Bangkok very special and memorable.

Michai was awesome! What a great tour given by a world class guide. Such a great time learning and exploring the many sides of Bangkok. Michai was expert at listening and adapting to our interests as the day progressed and extremely knowledgeable of the many contradictions of Bangkok that give it an unexpected allure. We are in love with Bangkok. Thank you!

Michai was a perfect tour guide to immerse us into the culture of Bangkok at night. We did what the locals do and it was wonderful! He was very knowledgeable and fun to be with, and we really enjoyed spending the evening with him. Thank you Michai for making our stay in Bangkok special. JaNice and John

We saw first hand why M has so many amazing reviews. He provides an amazing insight into the history, culture and food of Thailand. Not the glossy modern part, but the rich, authentic flavors that you can only experience if your close friend was from Thailand. We went with our two boys, 12 and 13, we will never forget the truly amazing experience M provided. This is a once in a life time experience. Don't pass it up, you will not regret it. Thank you M.

This was our third and final day with M. We were sad to say goodbye as he has become more than a tour guide but a friend. He did a wonderful job of explaining the history behind these temple ruins. The day was perfectly planned and his driver was very safe and professional. We have not had one complaint during our time with him. He is professional timely friendly polite and very knowledgeable. His English is very good. We would recommend him to anyone who wants more than just sightseeing. Thank you M

We have used M two days in a row. M is an outstanding tour guide. Once again he was early and awaiting us in the lobby. He took us to places that we NEVER would have seen on our own. His in depth explanation and description of the areas allow so much better understanding and appreciation. We came hoping to immerse ourselves in the culture and M definitely provided that opportunity. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to fully appreciate Thailsnd culture. Thank you Steve and Cathy

M is an outstanding guide. His English is excellent and he a very intelligent young man. The night tour took us to off the path sites and home style authentic Thai food. He was early for our tour and extremely personable. We would highly recommend this tour with him. It was the perfect introduction to Bangkok. Thanks

Excellent! Michai was full of information about Bangkok, and took us all over the city using a variety of public transportation. We ate street food, explored Chinatown, and had a drink at a bar with a stunning view of the Chao Phraya River. We enjoyed the information and the company - Michai was a lot of fun to hang out with for an evening.

We had a wonderful time with M. He was very flexible and worked with us to get us all the places we wanted to go. We worked it out to see Wat Chaiwatthanaram at sunset and got amazing photos. The boat ride was a wonderful touch. Thanks M!
