This is our first visit to Thailand and we just returned from a wonderful tour of the Grand Palace and Chinatown.
We booked our 8 am – 4 pm tour online on short notice and it went very smoothly. Our guide, Joker, picked us up at our hotel and took us to the Grand Palace. We were able to jump all of the cues and get access to the palace even though it was incredibly busy. Our tour was fabulous, Joker knew all of the history and was able to explain it all to us. Our oldest daughter got heatstroke and Joker very quickly arranged for an ambulance to pick her up and take care of her. Within 20 minutes she was feeling better and we were on our way. Amazingly enough there was no charge!
Because she wasn’t feeling well we were unable to continue so we went back to our hotel to rest for the afternoon. Joker was kind enough to agree to pick us up at 5 PM and take us to Chinatown then. We met and he took us on a fabulous tour through all of the different areas of Chinatown. We were able to do things that we never would’ve been able to do on our own. He took us to many different street food vendors and ordered us dishes that we would never have known to even try!
We would highly recommend a private tour with Joker. He was very kind, knowledgeable and flexible. It certainly made the most of our few days in Bangkok!
