Our 2 days with Jay were truly memorable! Her knowledge about Bangkok, Buddhism, & all things Thailand were super helpful as we toured Bangkok; the floating & train markets, Chinatown, & some of her favorite spots. We absolutely loved her spirit & her surprises along the way; encouraging us to taste unique street food to checking out a salt farm & a sugar making plant. Jay is one of the best guides we've ever toured with in all of our travels & in our short 2 days, know we have a new friend in Bangkok!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heather, Debbie & Kerin, thank you sooo much for your amazing review but most of all for your personal note about our time together. It was a special time with all of you in a special time in our lives during the crisis that hit our world and society so hard this time. All the best health and happiness to all of you!! Kind regards, Jay

We had a fantastic time with Jay! She was incredibly friendly and helpful - and took some great photos for us! We were able to explore all of the areas on our wishlist and more due to Jay's expert guiding! We HIGHLY recommend having a guide (especially Jay) in Bangkok as we would not have been able to see a fraction of what we saw if we had just explored on our own. Jay was also very helpful in locating and negotiating prices for specific souvenirs. Thank you for showing us your fascinating city!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathryn, thank you very much for your raving review and all your kind words. It was great exploring Bangkok with you this day and I hope the rest of your time in Thailand will be as amazing! kind regards, Jay

We had an incredible day with Jay, seeing the best of Bangkok. We would give her a "10" if possible. Such a fantastic guide. The tuk-tuk rides,long boat ride thru canals, and subway added to the ambiance of being in Bangkok. Then, at the end of the tour she took us to a Michelin star restaurant for lunch! Best day ever.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cindy, thank you very much for rating me and my tour 10 stars. It was great exploring Bangkok with you and I wish we had more time! Kind regards, Jay

Jay could not have been more knowledgeable, thoughtful and helpful for this all day tour. Jay was so well informed. We learned so much from her. Not only about the sights. We also learned about Thai culture and language. We would absolutely recommend her. Our only disappointment was that she was already booked on our remaining days in Bangkok and could not be our guide for balance of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lawrence, thank you very much for your kind words and for your appreciation about the tour and me. It was great hanging out and traveling with you on both days. I hope you will return to Bangkok one day. Kind regards, Jay

Jay was warm and delightful. We spent our very first days in Thailand with her and would have loved the opportunity to spend more time with her but she was booked. She was punctual and prepared and clearly enjoyed her role. She answered all of our questions enthusiastically and was honest on the rare occasion that she did not know. She shared her knowledge of the city, the countryside, it’s history and culture. We highly recommend her.

Jay did a great job organizing our tour. She arranged all elements of our tour and went out of her way to make sure that we had a good time. She was prompt, efficient, very knowledgeable, great at logistics (always had the driver ready to meet us at different points in the tour), thought about the little things like always having water and a cold towel to cool us off. We would highly recommend Jay to anyone looking for a tour guide in and around Bangkok.

To say Jay was fantastic would be a understatement she was so caring and understanding for our individual needs we did so much in our short time in Bangkok which she made so enjoyable for us. We have been fortunate in our lives and have been to many places but Jay has been the best guide ever and would definitely book her again if in Bangkok. She has our total recommendation for the lovely person she is. Digby and Janet

Jay was fabulous! She took great care of our family, getting us into all the spots we wanted to see despite huge crowds in Bangkok for the New Year. She was able to adjust as needed. She also went well out of her way to find a special mortar and pestle my husband was looking to purchase. She had water, cokes, cool towels all at our disposal as it was quite warm. Jay is an extraordinary tour guide and a delight! I can't say enough good things - simply the best!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tanya, thanks for your kind words and happy review about our tour together. We were able to visit most highlights on your 2 days shore excursion to Thailand but of course there's much more to see. So see you next time :-) Kind regards, Jay

We can't say enough about our 2 days with Jay. From our pick up by Tim at the port into the city where Jay met us with a huge smile and made sure we had a memorable time, we loved every minute of our tour! Jay not only showed us the can't miss sites (navigating us through people, car and motorbikes), she ensured we had time for everything we wanted to see and do...lots of food, shopping, our amazing boat rides and finally thai massage! What was best though was just getting to know Jay & her amazing city!

Jay was amazing! She was flexible, informative and sweet. She was great with our teenage boys and we tried an enormous amount of delicious foods and got to talk with many vendors. She genuinely enjoys her job and made us feel welcome right away. It turned out that there was a huge open market near our hotel that day, so we took the sky train there, then the subway to China town and then a very exciting Tuk Tuk ride to our hotel. Thank you Jay!!

If I could give Jay 10 stars I would. We added a 2nd day with her to make sure that we maximized our time in Bangkok. Both days were well worth the investment -- we wouldn't have experienced even half of what we did without her (see post on previous day).
