We spent 2 full days in Bangkok (and it’s surroundings) with our guide, Joke. From day one, when we tried to book a guide (with a driver and a car), the staff at YTG were very responsive and helpful. Our email communication was very quick and we nailed down all the landmarks we must visit months before our arrival (Thank you, Chris & Natt).
We gave them a deposit via PayPal after we finalized our itinerary and settled the rest once the tour ended. However, they are also very flexible if you want to tweak your schedule later on.
On our first day of excursion, Joke took us to the Flower Market, Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Chathuchak Weekend Market, The River and Canal Tour (via private boat) and we ended our day by visiting Thip Samai for dinner (a famous Pad Thai restaurant in Bangkok-delicious!).
The day after, we left the city and visited the Train Market, Damnoen Saduak (The original floating market), a palm sugar plantation, an elephant park and a Tiger Zoo (highly recommended).
Joke was more like a historian as he explained everything so thoroughly as we walked through all the different sites. He was also very entertaining and funny. He carried his tablet around and took pictures along the way so we did not have to keep taking pictures from our cameras. We really appreciated that since we were able to fully enjoy the experience.
He emailed all the pictures to us before we left Bangkok for Krabi; those photos are just absolutely brilliant. We really enjoyed our short visit in Bangkok and we were beyond thrilled and happy with the service YTG provided on both days. it did not feel rushed and It was also very reasonable given that it was a private tour for 2 adults including a comfy oversized air-conditioned minivan and a driver.
We did not have to wait in line to enter any of the sites. The driver also made sure that we had cold towels and cold bottled water after each site visit. We highly recommend these guys for your trip to explore Bangkok. You will not be disappointed!
