We arrived in Bangkok on Monday and booked a two day tour with guide Chris. First day was touring three temples, Grand Palace, flower market, canal tour, and Chinatown. The second day was suppose to be Ayutthaya but my husband and I changed our minds because it was really far for us. Instead, we did the floating market, train market, elephant camp and feeding a small tiger.
Both days, Chris was on time and waiting for us in the lobby. She is very nice, speaks very good English, and is very sweet, considerate, and flexible. I am so happy we got an amazing host. We got to take the train, Tuk Tuk, taxi and boat all around the city.
During the tour, we changed our minds a few times and she was very flexible. I am so glad we got to see the train market and floating market instead of Ayutthaya. The van ride was approx. 1 hour, traffic was good. Van was air conditioned, very clean, and always had water stocked. The animals at the elephant camp didn’t looked drugged and ours didn’t have a chain around him The tiger place is a rescue place and the place looked very clean and animals looked like they were well taken care of. Chris did volunteer work for SPCA international and she said the animals here were taken care of better than most places in Thailand.
Both days we had to end our tour almost an hour early because my husband and I were so jet lagged , we wanted to go back to the hotel and rest for a few but we got to see so much and saw everything we wanted to see. My husband and I went at a faster pace as far as sightseeing and going place to place and Chris told us to take as much time as we need and she was our host so if we needed more time that she didn’t want us to feel rushed.
Reading different tours, I think they say this is slightly more expensive compared to other tours but it was worth every dollar! Or baht haha.
The communication prior to the tour was excellent and they were always prompt with replies and emails. Very professional
Thank you so much Chris!
