I just came back from a visit to Thailand and had Joke as our Tour Guide. This is the 2nd time I have booked a tour with Joke. He is an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of Thai history is very good and he makes the tour lots of fun. I plan to book him again in October when I bring my sister for her first visit to Thailand.
Natt was a wonderful guide for us and she has a great command of English language. Her personality shone through as she showed us around the various sights of Bangkok. I would recommend her highly to anybody wanting a competent guide.
My husband and I had booked Joker on short notice for a one day tour of Bangkok. From 8 to 4:30, not only did he cover the highlights of temples, markets, and river cruising, but he managed to make the tour beyond sightseeing and gave us better insight into Thai culture. He also quickly figured out that we love trying food that is new to us, so it turned out to be part food tour as well!
Needless to say, Joker is very adaptable to your pace and interests. He brings Thai history to life as he takes you around the city via train, boat, and tuk tuk. He is very professional, yet friendly. He also genuinely cares for his guests… giving advice, important phone numbers and directions, and how not to get scammed. Overall we had an amazing time with Joker. We highly HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a tour guide.
Absolutely fantastic day. We enjoyed every moment of it. Very informative, Joke was very kind and very helpful.
He catered to us being vegetarian and really looked after us. Would highly recommend him and would definitely book him again. Thank you for a great experience Joke!
My wife and I spent 3 days with Natt touring in and around Bangkok in Feb. I can not say enough good things about the service that she provides and the person she is. Not only did we leave Thailand with a better understanding of the culture and customs but left having made a very dear friend that we hope to visit again in the next few years.
I’m alway amused at those that think a $20 guide book is all that they need and don’t make an investment in a guide after spending thousands of dollars on a trip. I travel a lot, I’m on a plane right now writing this, one thing I can guarantee you is you will not find a better guide in Thailand than Natt. This will be the smartest money that you spend on your vacation. I only wish I could give her a 6 star recommendation instead of 5.
When we got to Bangkok, everything went as smoothly as possible. Natt and the driver picked us up on time and took us right away on tour of all the major palaces in Bangkok that we requested (Grand Palace, Wat Po, Wat Arun). She spoke amazing English and knows Bangkok really well. She gave us the perfect blend of giving us time to take pictures while giving us great information on all the places we visited.
I was traveling with my in-laws who are older and move slow and Natt was very accommodating to their needs on the fly. It was super hot so she helped us find water, umbrellas, and restrooms anywhere we were. I really appreciated that and all her tour cost estimates where right on or under the estimated costs. Even her traffic estimates were right on (or under the time expected) which I love cause I think I am very efficient and a well planned person.
Lai apskatītu Bangkoku izmantojām gidu Joke. Jau pāris nedēļas iepriekš rezervēju dienu un saskaņojām ekskursiju. Viņš ir ļoti zinošs par Bangkokas vēsturi un apskates objektiem.
Lai arī manas angļu valodas zināšanas ir niecīgas, saprasties varējām. Lai izbaudītu Bangkokas gaisotni, pārvietojāmies ar visu iespējamo Bangkokas sabiedrisko transportu. Super. Visiem iesaku izmantot Joke gidu.
We had a wonderful experience seeing Bangkok and the surrounding areas with Natt Opasanon as our guide. We are a couple with demanding jobs who didn’t have much time to plan the trip but wanted to make the most of our 11-day vacation in Thailand.
We contacted Natt early, and worked with her via e-mail to plan the particular activities we would do with her around Bangkok. She also gave us advice on how to organize our trip as a whole, beyond our time in Bangkok.
Natt was knowledgeable, honest, organized and a lot of fun to spend time with! She worked closely with us by email to organize a set of activities that meshed well with what we enjoyed. Natt knows safe, responsible drivers that efficiently took us on day trips we couldn’t have organized on our own. She had great contacts with small family-run operations that tour the rivers around Bangkok while avoiding the main touristy crowds.
We were impressed and pleasantly surprised at how many beautiful parts of the Thai countryside we saw and how much we could learn about Thai culture in a few days. In Bangkok, Natt was always ready with lots of fascinating stories that created the necessary context to understand the art, architecture, and important cultural landmarks we saw in the palace area. She also gave us some great tips on where to get terrific Thai food, and on how to avoid getting sick (which worked).
To anyone who wants help organizing their trip to Thailand and who wants to have some unique, fun experiences, we highly recommend contacting Natt and YourThaiGuide!
We had a wonderful day touring the main temples in Bangkok with my boyfriend. “Joke” clearly knew a lot about the temples, and was keen to share his knowledge.
Also, he was able to accommodate changes to the tour where necessary e.g. when I got very tired we stopped for a rest and I even stopped for a massage (my boyfriend and Joke waiting for me nearby).
I felt to make the most of the guide’s knowledge it would be best to leave spare time to see the real Bangkok (ask Joke for tips).
Had a fantastic day with Natt. She has an amazing charisma and managed to give me a fantastic experience of Bangkok. I had only one day to experience it all and Natt did a terific job. She is “the guide” if you should see Bangkok and learn how to act in the city. Thank you so much Natt.
Natt is an great tour guide. She has outstanding personal skills; she is well educated; she has done a great deal of traveling in and out of Thailand and she knows the history of Thailand.
Natt is very intuitive and I was impressed how quickly she was able to figure out that I did not want to rush from one site to another. The other person in my group wanted to a bit of shopping and I loved how Natt did not force me to go along.
I stood outside on the street and soaked up the sounds and smells of Bangkok for awhile. She really knows how to work with people and I highly recommend her.
Having Joke as our tour guide was the best idea we had. I’m sure we couldn’t have seen so many things if it wasn’t for him. He showed us how to use the public transport and that was really useful. Thank you Joke for the great restaurant you recommended and for making us those great photos!
Had a wonderful day with Joke in Bangkok on February 25th. It was a public holiday with the Grand Palace only open a few hours, but he was able to get us there, inside and show us Wat Prakeaw and Grand Palace. We had a interesting long boat trip on the canals, visited Wat Arun, had lunch, a walk through China Town and exciting tuk-tuk tour in between.
Joke has great knowledge of his country and history, is very pleasant and speaks English very good. We give him our best recommendations and would love to have spent more time with him – Next time, hopefully…..
We just finished our tour with Joker and had a great time. He was very helpful in making purchases and food selections. He also provided an excellent tour of the palace and had many interesting historical stories to share during our site visits. Highly recommended should you want to explore Bangkok.
Moreover, Joker is genuinely interested in you enjoying your time in Bangkok and is a very friendly person.
We contacted Natt the day we arrived Bangkok and she succeeded in arranging our tour through the Grand Palace and some of the temples for the next day.
I’m very impressed from her professional approach, competence and experience. Thanks to Natt our visit was perfectly plan and we didn’t waste any time in looking for convenient public transport, rummaging in the maps and finding the essence.
She gave us a lot of information about the country’s history and culture, answered all the questions (believe me, they weren’t just a few) and advised us how we could organize the rest of our stay. She just made our perfect exploring day!
Thank you very much, Natt!
Joker was brilliant. He’s very knowledgeable and very friendly. He knew the sites and the history and we had a great 2 days with him in Bangkok.
I highly recommend him to anyone wanting a tour guide.
Having never been to Bangkok before and wanting to make the most of my 2 days there mid-Jan 2013, I did some internet research and finally booked Natt for 2 full days as my guide to the Bangkok sights. Prior to my arrival, Natt corresponded with me by email so she had a clear understanding of the places I wanted to visit.
She met me at my hotel on the morning of my first day of sightseeing and we set off. From the outset Natt was chatty and friendly and really put me at ease – something I was very happy about having just arranged to spend 2 days with a stranger! Over 2 days we visited lots of locations including the amazing temples, Chinatown market, the Grand Palace and Vimanmek Palace.
Natt has an extensive knowledge of the history of the Thai Royal family and also Thailand’s Buddhist religion so I learned a lot about these things as well as viewing the sights. Natt selected places to stop for lunch (yum!) and snacks and she was happy to take things at my pace and adjust our plans along the way.
She speaks excellent English, has a quick wit and sense of humor and has traveled extensively through Thailand so would be a great choice for guiding outside of Bangkok as well. I had a fabulous 2 days with Natt and would highly recommend her as a guide.
I will definitely be re-booking her for my next stop in Bangkok!
We had an 8-hour tour of Bangkok with Natt, she was very flexible on the schedule. I asked her last minute if we can rent a van for the tour and fortunately, there’s one available so we didn’t have to ride public transport for our very limited time in Bangkok. She’s cool and speaks fluent English so there wasn’t any problems with the communication as well.
She took us to this yummy Thai cafeteria-style restaurant near the shopping malls and it was really good for cheap! At the end of the trip, we were short of Thai baht and she didn’t have a problem stopping at a few Forex stalls and ATMs so we can have Thai baht.
It was fun!
We arranged for Natt to be our guide for the first 2.5 days we were in Bangkok, the first day Natt picked us up from the airport and we went and saw some of the sights and went for a boat ride through the canals, then to China Town for some local cuisine.
The next morning we were up very early to drive to Kanchanaburi, where we went to Elephants World, we then went to the Bridge on the River Kwai and went out for dinner.
We stayed in Kanchanaburi for the night and got up nice and early again to go to the Tiger Temple, then to the National park and back to town to the war museum before heading back to Bangkok to say goodbye to Natt and continue on our Bangkok trip on our own.
Natt was great company the whole time, it was wonderful to spend time with a local that had conversational english, so we chatted about all manner of things. Natt went out of her way to find interesting places for us to eat local food, as that is one of our main passions and even the driver got in on the act and took us to a place he knew about that serves “bush tucker” Natts driver was a really nice guy and even though he knew little english we still had the occasional laugh.
Natt knew a lot about the all the places we went to and answered all sort of questions that other guides would not have even understood. She also often had our camera so we have great shots of us together which is lovely to come home to and enjoy.
Natt is a lovely young lady who is running a very processional business and I have no doubt that the next time we go to Bangkok she will be too busy to take us on a tour but will have more great staff working for her that will do a great job.
Thank you Natt for your company and professionalism while we were with you. I truly do feel like I now have a friend that lives in Bangkok
We organized two days with Natt so we could get as much done as we could in the time we had in Bangkok. Natt was a great asset for us with neither of us having been to Bangkok before.
She met us at our hotel. We were one and a half hours late due to major flight delays (fortunately I was able to get an email to her from Changi on the way) and had almost no sleep….she was the perfect guide for us to have. She was relaxed, friendly, easy going and very knowledgeable.
Nothing was too much trouble. She organized our transport during our two days using the various river boats, MRT or BTS so as to lessen our time traveling and maximize our time at our various destinations.
Natt was able to share lots of useful hints and tips during our time, saving us time and or money. She was very generous with sharing her knowledge of past and present Bangkok and nothing was too much effort.
There is no question that Natt made our stay in Bangkok all the better. We got to do and see all that we wanted. We would highly recommend Natt and would utilize her services again when in Bangkok.
We had the pleasure of having Wallop ‘Joke’ Kittiwititkun as a tour guide in Bangkok for 2 consecutive days and we really got value for our money.
Wallop ‘Joke’ Kittiwititkun has a vast knowledge of Bangkok and its history. He knows all about temples, palaces and other attractions. His English is perfect and he is very polite and helpful. We particularly liked the use of public transport around the city. That way you get really seen city life.
Best recommendations from the Helene & John, Den
Natt met us at the cruise terminal and maximized our available time in Bangkok. She was personable, professional and made our too brief visit very special. She demonstrated a flexibility that enabled us to see as much as possible.
In sum, Natt was a very large component in our enjoyment of Bangkok. I most definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a guide who is both knowledgeable and a joy to work with.
My husband & I were on a cruise which included 2 days in Pattaya, Thailand . We had just spent 5 days in Bangkok 2 years before so we were up for something different and hired Natt from Your Thai Guide, who assigned Joker to be our guide.
He was punctual, warm, creative and had spoke perfect English. We went to Ayutthaya, and to see everything in and around Pattaya. Joker made sure we had vegetarian options for our meals (try morning glory- yummy!!). He took photos for us & made our visit special.
I had a wonderful experience during my 2 days short stay, thanks to my tour Guide Natt. She was very nice, pleasant and flexible. I had some limitation of ambulation, she was not only considerate but also very compassionate about it.
She went out of her way to see that I have the best of experience. She took care of my needs as my own daughter would have done. I was impressed by her professionalism and without hesitation recommend her to anyone.
