Highlights and Hidden Gems of Bangkok private tour
Simon really knows Bangkok. My group of 7 family members including a 3 year old followed Simon through the street of Bangkok as he explained the history of the places we visited. Simon was very attentive to our needs and issues. Walking the streets in the 30+ temperature was hot for all of us. Simon realizing this, was quick to switch from walking to each sight to a Tuk Tuk ride. We all had a great time. I very happy I selected Sion for this tour and highly recommend him as a tour guide.

I don’t think we could have had a more personalized and unique view of Bangkok and all the wonderful areas throughout the city that make it special. From the beautiful Golden Buddha and reclining Buddha to our time weaving in and out of the exciting area of old China Town every bit of the tour felt special.

My partner and I were in Bangkok only for a few days and were looking for an experience that will take us to all the great must-see sights of the city for a great value – the tour was that and much more! We saw the beautiful temples, got around the city on various transport methods but also saw the rural local parts and street food that we would have never been able to see by ourselves. The guide briefed us on the history of each place we went to and was always happy to answer questions. The tour is packed with a lot of walking so make sure you wear comfortable shoes and have water on hand. The guide was really great and accommodating if we wanted to stop for photos, coffee or souvenirs 🙂 Highly recommend!
