We enjoyed our Tour by Locals in Laem Chabang and Pattaya with Swai who went out of his way to make sure we covered everything we wanted to do on this day. He was like a personal assistant who jumped through hoops to make sure we were beyond satisfied. We loved seeing the The Sanctuary Of Truth and visiting the elephants. We also visited the Floating Market and the local beach area of Pattaya which was a gorgeous hot spot. We would love to return! We also saw the beautiful mall and ate local food.

Swai was beyong amazing! He really stayed with us throughout the day and made sure we got back to our hotel safely, even if he didn't need to! He accommodated our interests and places we wanted to see even if it was way beyond the time schedule. We really recommend his services!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for your kind review. The trip was really fun that day even in the rain. Where the trip had led to that day ⇨ BTS Sky Train & River Ferry Bus ⇨ The Royal Grand Palace & the Temple of the Emerald Buddha ⇨ Tuk tuk from a local market to Wat Arun ⇨ Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn ⇨ Wat Pho & the hall of the Reclining Buddha ⇨ Experience a local air-con bus ⇨ Chatuchak Weekend Market ⇨ MRT Blue Line & walk to Tipsamai Phad Thai ⇨ A take-out of a kind of noodle soup - "Flat Rice Flour"

Simon engaged our family of 6 (with teens) with interesting stories and facts, keeping everyone's attention on both long days. We truly enjoyed his hospitality and the way he brought Thailand alive for our family. Along the way, he attended to our every need and made sure we were enjoying each experience. We left some art we purchased in the van and he called me and came back to give it to us on the ship. He is a caring and wonderful man that will take care of you during your stay in Thailand.

Our group of 4 adults used the services of Swai and a very nice driver (sorry, cannot remember his name) for transportation from a hotel in Bangkok to our cruise ship port at Laem Chabang. They arrived for pick-up on time despite high traffic for a Bangkok holiday. Swai worked with us to plan an itinerary of attractions along the way that we liked, and adjusted it as needed when it started to rain. Swai's English was good and his humor was appreciated. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for your kind review. Any very welcome to Thailand in the future

Swai was a wonderful guide. Rather than coming with a prescribed itinerary, he was interested in obtaining our input about what we wanted to see.He was very professional and informative. He encouraged us to ask questions and answered all of them. He went out of his way to point out interesting things. He knew we were interested in food, and took us to several interesting markets and pointed out various Thai ingredients and food items.

SWAI is a fantastic tour guide. He picked us up timely from our cruise ship and planned a terrific tour for us in Bangkok. Time is limited so he made the best use of time. He's a great personality, is very friendly and has a desire to please. Would definitely recommend him to anyone. The six of us had a great time thanks to him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The trip was started at 08:30 a.m. and spent driving time a few hours to arrive the central of Bangkok. The road traffic was so very heavy. And it had to consider the driving time back to the cruise ship because the cruise ship would leave at 6:00 p.m. on the same day. So after a break of lunch, it was almost 1:45 p.m. That was so late to visit anywhere elses. The group had to head back to the cruise ship and arrived at 4:20 p.m. Thank for the visit and very welcome to come back again in the future.

Swai was very knowledgeable and helpful with good English skills and a pleasure to spend the day with. We had a delayed start because of a misunderstanding about group size, hence 4 stars instead of 5. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Swai was brilliant with us 5 UK lads. Only in Bangkok for 3 days, we had a wishlist between(tailored agenda. Swai was accommadating and flexible to all our needs. Very knowledgeable and fun to have. We had the floating market, temples, canal rides to name a few and ended up in a drinking area. Very professional and reluctant to eat or drink. Finally cracked him at the food market ! Just wouldn't take his tie off in this sweltering heat! I'm sure another group will! I strongly reccomend him. Thank you

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for your kind review. It was so great honored and so happy to work on the tour.

Swai was a fantastic guide. He could not have been more helpful, friendly and informative. We were a group of nine so it worked out excellent value for money too. Travelling with him on foot, by boat and sky train was infinitely better than getting caught up in the horrendous traffic. We all had a fantastic day and fitted in so much. I cannot recommend this guy highly enough. Book him right now - you will be so glad you did

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The trip was started from the route of the Sky Train to connect the daily bus ferry and visit Temple of Dawn. The cross by ferry crossing to Tha Tien for the tour to Wat Pho & the Reclining Buddha. The group wanted to go for shopping at MBK. And finally to a drinking bar at Soi Cowboy. Thank for kind review

Swai is probably the most professional tour guide in Bangkok. He was prompt on picking us up at the port, which approximately 2 1/2 hours from Bangkok and returned us to the ship on time. We used his services foe two days and he set up our tour on what my wife wanted to see. We felt most comfortable with his driver. There is lots of traffic in Bangkok, so Swai will make sure you arrive at your destinations on time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for your review It was a great pleasure to tour for you and your wife. The trips were covered the highlight of Bangkok on the first day and the floating market on the second day.

Swai did an amazing job for us! We enjoyed the indescribable Grand Palace, a local ferry ride, a market, the Emerald Buddha, the Reclining Buddha, a fun tuk tuk ride, the Golden Mount, and several ethnic treats. He even found us inexpensive and cute "modesty kits" for the temples. We were so impressed with all he was able to show us in such a short amount of time, and yet he was so careful to ensure we were back to our ship with time to spare.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure. Tour was led to Bangkok from Laem Chabang Port. The trip was to the main highlights of Bangkok : the Royal Grand Palace & the Temple of the Emerald Buddha; the local market at "Wang Lang"; the experience of the local Took Took ride; the Temple of Dawn and Wat Pho & the Reclining Buddha.

Enjoyed our tour of the national park today with Swai. We went in a big group of 14. Swai was attentive and there was ease of booking the tour. The kids enjoyed his guided tour a lot. He was also flexible to meet our needs and very personable. Will definitely book another tour with him if there's an opportunity in the future!

Swai was amazing, even though I think he was as amused by our choices of things to visit. He helped us see and try all the things we had hoped for and then some! Not only is he kind and funny, but an infinite well of knowledge about the culture and history of Bangkok. Thank you Swai for taking us safely, swiftly, and without complaint on our grand albeit odd adventure!

Tour: Tour by public transports from Bangkok ➤ the floating market & the railway market, Bangkok, Thailand
Date: Mar 29/17

There was little information of value provided. We had to pay for the boat. We didn't get to see what happens at the train market when the train arrives.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Please accept my apologies that my commentary throughout the tour was not up to my usual standard - I had incorrectly assumed that you wanted some quiet time during the tour. I will try to gauge my customers' interests better in future. As per the tour description the boat ride is not compulsory, and just an optional extra. Thank you for your feedback.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Please accept our apologies that the tour was not more customized to your interests. Please also note that the additional cost for the boat tour was correctly detailed in the 'What's Extra' section of the booking form; this is an optional extra to allow flexibility regarding the transport.
