We toured Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and the golden triangle when we first moved to Thailand this summer, and found the tour guides arranged through the large commercial services to be uneven. All were prompt, some were knowledgeable, some were just cheesey – taking us to Gem stores, silk stores, jade stores, etc. Knowing we’d need a guide to recommend to visitors, we researched and found Natt Opasanon at Your Thai Guide.
Natt met with us over coffee and we talked about our interests, her expertise, and made a plan. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and speaks english very well. She took us off the Temple tracks, as we traveled by rail and ferry to the National Museum for some history, and views of the Royal Chariots, then to Chinatown for lunch and a long walking tour of the shops and markets, then to the snake farm for the afternoon presentation and museum tour. She answered questions easily and also gave us some useful suggestions for local resources that we wouldn’t have known. She was enthusiastic and kept us well hydrated. She was a pleasure to be with, and we recommend her highly.
