Jean was a super guide: relaxed, thorough, well-informed, gracious, and fun. His English was excellent and we didn’t have to “work” to understand him. Without being preachy or books, he was an excellent teacher. He gave us the perfect amount of information at each site that we visited and filled us in with further facts if we asked more questions.
We had a long day and he paced it well so that we saw everything we had wanted to see (at the time). We need lots more time to explore Bangkok.
I don’t think we truly appreciated Jean at the time but we have now had 3 more guides (in Vietnam) and they either couldn’t speak English or didn’t know their local history.
If we return to Bangkok we will call Jean again.
Many thanks for a really nice intro to Bangkok.
