Jean was simply perfect. We had a long list of things we wanted to do in a short period of time. This was unrealistic, and Jean prepared a plan for the two days that worked really well. This was the first sign that we had a good tour guide and that we needed someone with his expertise to help us.
Jean was polite, calm, easy to get along with, and has a great sense of humour. All of these things made him the perfect guide for us.
We wanted a guide to show us around and take the stress out of the day without feeling like we were being shuffled from one place to the next without any care for what we wanted. In this sense, Jean was excellent for us. The two days ran so smooth for us, and everything was taken care of in advance with enough flexibility for us to change the plan along the way.
We felt like we were being taken around Bangkok by a friend rather than a tour guide, and in my opinion that is what made Jean a true professional. There were so many small things he did that showed us he is not just a great guide but also a great person.
I cannot speak more highly of Jean, and strongly recommend him as a tour guide.
