This tour was even more fun and comprehensive than we anticipated. Guitar was a wonderful, extremely well informed guide and took us to places we would never have seen without him. After four hours tasting food and exploring Chinatown the flower market and other night spots we were ready to head back to our hotel but Guitar was perfectly willing to keep the tour going if we had wanted to. After 15 trips to Bangkok over the years, this was my best and most authentic experience in this great city.

Guitar is a very flexible and knowledgable guide. He knows a lot of interesting facts and knew how to adapt his tour to our wishes. His comments are sometimes hilariously funny.

Guitar was fun and engaging. We did the train market, floating market and had delicious Phad Thai at a restaurant on the water. The elephant/tiger park, that we thought was a conservation park, was very sad. The animals were being exploited and the elephant staff were trying to sell us ivory. We should have researched the place or asked more questions. The train market was our favorite.

Guitar and our driver, Kate were fabulous! Guitar was very accommodating (he purchase lotus pods for us to eat when I asked and changed our itinerary to see the Golden Buddha instead of the Emerald Buddha). Our lunch was delicious, authentic and amazing! He ordered the Pad Thai and Pad See Ew that we wanted but ordered fried Ruby fish and steamed sea bass. Guitar is fluent in English, knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend booking his tours 100%!

If you're looking for a seasoned, proficient, knowledgeable, professional, personable and fun guy to tour you around Bangkok, Guitar is your guy. Only once we arrived at our first stop did we realize how truly connected Guitar was with EVERYBODY. Seeing how many people at the market were genuinely happy to see him as we passed by was fantastic and a true indicator of the type of person he really is. His pseudo celebrity status comes with perks that made the tour all the better!

Guitar was such a delight to have as a guide on this four-hour tour! He was not only humorous and entertaining but also knowledgeable and well-prepared to provide a meaningful and enjoyable experience throughout. Not for us the dead and dried scorpions or worms, but there's delicious food to be had elsewhere with Guitar. He's out to ensure we had a good time trekking through Chinatown and the Flower Market as well. What most impressed us was Guitar's humanity and thoughtfulness for others less fortunate.

Guitar was very accommodating ... We changed our itinerary last minute, due to our having visited a few of the locations with our cruise tour, and altered the tour time.. Guitar was really a breath of fresh air .. A tremendous amount of energy , extremely passionate and very colorful! Not your regular conservative tour guide, so if you are reserved, YOU will miss out on a great experience! Guitar really knows his history, politics, culture, current & past events. Honestly answers any questions -

This was a great tour and Guitar was a fun and knowledgeable guide. Our van and driver were (selected by Guitar) were great. We swam in the cool waters which due to the extreme heat were perfect. We visited the Elephant Sanctuary and fed and rode the elephants there. It is a long ride, but the countryside is beautiful. It was nice to see the beauty outside of Bangkok. Guitar arranged a lunch for us, and the food was wonderful. A great tour for anyone looking for a chance to see the countryside.

Guitar accompanied us in our boat at the Damneon floating market and helped identify items being sold and flagged down boats when we wanted to make a purchase. At the Maeklong train market, Guitar placed us where we had an excellent view of the market folding away as the train made its way down the tracks. These markets are worth seeing, especially with a Guitar as a guide. He is knowledgeable, trustworthy, funny, and considerate. Based on the three tours that we took with Guitar, we highly recommend him.

Although you could visit the Grand Palace and Wat Pho on your own, having a guide like Guitar makes the experience easy and enjoyable. It is obvious that Guitar is an experienced guide who is recognized and well-liked by the people working at these places. He timed our arrivals so we were able to avoid long lines and crowds. We appreciated his knowledge, expertise, and funny anecdotes. Seeing the old houses lining the canals was interesting and made the longtail boat ride a favorite part of our tour.

This tour is a great way to experience local food and to familiarize yourself with Bangkok. It is best done early in your itinerary because Guitar provides a lot of information on Bangkok's history and customs and gives recommendations on popular cuisine and activities. That said, this tour is more enjoyable when you are not jet-lagged, so maybe wait a day until you are well-rested. Guitar is professional, yet energetic and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with him.

Guitar was knowledgeable, entertaining, thoughtful and knows how to connect with his clients. He introduced us to the Thai culture in a surprising way. It was a pleasure to have had him and I would ask for him again if I come back to Bangkok. 5 / 5 stars definitely

Had a great time in Bangkok for our private 2 day tour with Guitar. Everything went very well, a little trouble with the weather but only a bit on day one. Guitar is a great guide, very informed ... walks fast (kept us in shape)! I would greatly recommend Guitar as a guide.

Another great day with Guitar. The train market was amazing, watching everything unfold when the train comes through. Cheap fresh oysters. Just have to let them know that you do not want them spoiled with seafood sauce lol. I am not sure they quite understood how us kiwis like them nice and natural. And the floating market was a nice experience too. Guitar is such a great tour guide taking care of everything. Really enjoyed trying all the new fruits.

Guitar was very friendly and greeted us at our hotel as arranged. We could not have been looked after any better, either from Guitar or our driver. The experiences were outstanding - beautiful waterfalls, pools and slides with fish nibbling at your feet. Such a beautiful place. The elephant park provided an unforgetful experience. I loved bathing with Sonklin and being on the receiving end of her sprinkles. Elephant kisses were pretty good too. Thanks Tours by Locals and Guitar. Top marks.

Guitar was an excellent guide. There was some confusion about our start time, but that did not affect the tour. The tour was to be three hours, after 3 and a half we surrendered and had to stop. We had eaten so much we passed on fried rice and pad Thai. By that point we had tasted 10 items, not including insects. Each was fabulous. Guitar took us places where there were no tourists, to the very best vendors and was very informative. Guitar gets our highest recommendation.

Very grateful that Guitar stepped in today to give us his tour of Bangkok. Totally exceptional experience. He showed us the Golden Buddha, knew how to deal with our needs, mobility issues, true interests. Lively and knowledgeable commentary and discussion. Found a perfect place for a superb authentic lunch. Wonderful experience.

OUTSTANDING TOUR. Thanaphon ("Guitar") gave us a wonderful tour of Bangkok, that we and our 2 small children thoroughly enjoyed. Esp. since we booked on fairly short notice and did not have a chance to pre-setup everything. Only wish I could give him 6 stars. Thanks again,
