December 23, 2019Fantastic tours from Air.
We really liked the local transport and the local immersion like having tea and coffee with the locals.

Some of the best food of the trip.
Zoe December 14, 2019Great intro to BKK.

Tanya December 10, 2019We have very good time with Raht.
Thank you so much, we recommend to every one ????.
fstlyf November 23, 2019Friendly, great communication, organized and knowledgable.
Ms Raht took us where locals eat.
November 20, 2019An excellent day of sight seeing with the perfect mix of information and fun.
The day was organised fantastically to see all of the great sights without ever feeling rushed.
Lunch and drink stops were a welcome break from the heat and timed by our guide perfectly.
Air was very knowledgable and judged perfectly the level of information that would be interesting for our group.
She was always happy to answer any questions we had and have fun with us too.
Hannah November 16, 2019Lovely sequence and breaks with food, comfortable transport.
Air was perfect, we absolutely enjoyed our time with her and she felt like a friend showing us around.
Highly highly recommend her.
RoKi November 15, 2019We had a great tour and a great time with Air, who was a kind, gentle and considerate guide, who looked after us so well.
Also she knows everything about the places we visited and we received a good amount of information.
We also laughed a lot together.
We sure miss her and one can be lucky to stroll through Bangkok with her
LeanneH October 31, .
2019Raht led us on a fun and informative tour of Bangkok
We got to see the Vegetable and Flower Market, Wat Arun, Wat Pho, a nice Longtail Boat ride and lunch, and finally a massage.
It was a great day for my husband and I and also for our kids, ages 13 and 14.
The lunch was great, Raht ordered some dishes for us based on what we liked and didn’t like.
She was so personable and fun.
Had we not gone on this tour, .
We would have never seen so much in our one day in Bangkok
Kerstin October 27, 2019Tina was a great guide.
She was attentive, informative and friendly.
The tour was the right balance between temples, markets and relaxing time.
We all loved it.
Dustin October 24, 2019We family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Air.
She was a true pro.
My parents are older and Air was very attentive to their endurance throughout the day since we chose to walk a lot as well as using the MRT.
The pace was leisure but productive.
The Thai lunch was fantastic.
We let Air order with the only request that we get to try the most local Thai dishes possible.
Towards the end of the tour we were getting quite tired, and without our request, Air ordered taxis for us to go back to hotel instead of the MRT per the tour agreement.
It was a nice treat since Chinatown was a bit out of town and it would have been more tiring on my parents had we take the MRT, walking etc… We highly recommend this private tour to everyone, and we ourselves will definitely come back to BKK Tour for more trips with Air ????.
Kshiten October 19, 2019Both the tours were amazing.
The whole family had great experience.
The design of the tour was perfect.
Our guide, Raht made us fall in love with Thailand.
From the very first minute of our meeting, we got connected.
She was very responsive and my 6 year old was made so comfortable by her.
Thanks Raht for a great experience.
Mathias September 14.
2019All of Bangkoks “must see” places packed in one day full of fun
adventure and great food.
We loved the tour, the places we visit and the food we ate that day.
Awesome and fun time.
August 26, 2019Absolutely perfect.
Nadia is the best, so knowledgeable on Thai history and culture.
Canal and river tour on the long tail boat was the highlight of our tour.
Carol August 19, 2019I loved the tour.
Air is so full of information.
She also made it a lot of fun because she took photos as well and enjoyed herself as though it was her first time to see all the amazing buddhas and temples, though I’m sure she’s seen them well over 50 times already.
I would definitely recommend BKK tours for anyone.
Callum August 5.
2019Mr Tee guided us through the streets and canals of Bangkok by foot
tuk tuk, taxi and boat and let us feel the city as a local does.
He is vastly experienced and knowledgeable but presents himself with humility and kindness.
He had the day well planned but was happy to change things around so we could buy some local craft work.
He is fluent in English.
Trying to navigate this city with out him would be difficult and the interesting details would never have been uncovered.
Jay M June 22, 2019There is nothing mediocre about this tour, it was a great way to kick off our family holiday in Thailand.
The tour was absolutely fantastic from start to finish.
Jam-packed with all the ‘must go and see sites’.
We had first hand experience of the real Bangkok, while engaging with local Thai people while they work.
Our tour guide Petch (Natsuang) was amazing all together, she was friendly caring while engaging with the kids, she made a big effort and was really looking out for them throughout the day making sure they were all OK, as on the day in question the weather was very very hot.
Petch was a really great guide explaining the all history and culture of Bangkok throughout the tour, she is really excellent at her job.
It is people like Petch and BKK Tours that make Thailand amazing country.
When the tour was finished, it was really sad to say goodbye to Petch, as she felt more of a good friend then a tour guide, if i could give BKK tours 10 stars i would, i recommend BKK to anyone visiting Bangkok(Thailand), and no doubt when we visit again BKK will be booked.
Norma June 4, 2019Nadia, was terrific.
She was so knowledgeable, very personable, a great commentator and made our tours in Bangkok memorable.
Overall we took 3 tours: Highlights of Bangkok
Damneon Saduak Floating market and railway market, and Ayutthaya.
Nadia made sure we had the best experience in Bangkok
This was one of the best decisions we made, Nadia was a wonderful tour guide.
I highly recommend a private tour in Bangkok.
Rosie May 11, 2019Spent a lovely day with Petch.
I enjoyed all her special arrangements.
It was an informative, fun and even relaxing day.
