“Professional, excellent service”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We only had two days in Bangkok so checked on TAdvisor and contacted Mr Chob. He replied quickly and professionally with an excellent suggested itinerary for a one day tour of the city highlights, with guide and car. Our guide Mrs Tiem was very well informed, warm and welcoming. We got so much more out of our visit, as she managed to provide all the relevant information about the temples etc but also putting things into a local context. I am happy to recommend Thai PrivateTourGuide.

“Good tour of major sites in Bangkok”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We booked a full day tour of Bangkok's main attractions (Grand Palace & Temple of the Emerald Buddha - Temple of the Reclining Buddha - Canal tour) with Chob and our guide was Ms. Pat. They responded promptly to my email inquiries and were willing to accommodate our wish to include a 1 hour stop for a massage at the Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage School. As a newbie in Bangkok, having a private guide made it so much simpler, hussle free and allowing us to really enjoy the sites.

Ms. Pat was really sweet and knowledgeable and knew all the best spots to have our pictures taken! Unfortunately we couldn’t always understand her, as her English wasn’t very clear.

“Professional, friendly, enjoyable, excellent value”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Prior to our 2 day visit to Bangkok, our first, I checked out TripAdvisor and as a result of the positive comments booked a one day tour of the city with guide and a car. A few days before our departure, Mr Chob e mailed to advise the roads would be closed for Royal procession rehersal reasons and the car would not be possible. He could have said nothing until we arrived but this businesslike approach is characteristic of dealings with him. We opted for the guide + public transport.

Our guide, George was first class: his friendliness, enthusiasm, knowledge and willingness to incorporate our suggestions was outstanding. It was more like going around with a long time friend. Mr Chob is fortunate to have such a person on his team.

George hired a boat that picked us up from our hotel, toured the river & canals. We walked around the Royal Palace (almost a surfeit of fantastic buildings etc) and travelled on on foot, and public ferry to the other places of interst, temples, flower & vegetable market. A good spot was identified for lunchin mid tour and we finished, at our suggestion, with a tuk tuk ride to the hotel. A trully memorable day and the total cost was 5% less than the estimate.

For those who are less able, especially in the heat, the distance wealked might be an issue though it didn't bother us

In the end I think I enjoyed the day more by mixing with the ordinary people on the ferries etc and we certainly enjoyed the tuk tuk ride that I suggested at the end.

I certainly recommend this service without reservation and look forward to another tour on our next visit to Bangkok

“Khlongs Bangkok”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

We (my daughter and I) had the opportunity to go on a Khlong longtail Tour with Chob himself. We truly liked the tour had some fascinating conversations with Chob about life in Bangkok (and elsewhere since Chob is a well travelled man). It was one of the highlights of our trip and we will cherrish the memories.
