  3. Markets, UNESCO, a great guide and kind driver.
    (2 months ago)
    First and foremost, the staff on this tour were wonderful. Alex, our guide, was deeply knowledgeable, engaging, and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable throughout the day. The experience was a nice combination of viewing daily market life, for locals and tourists, and important UNESCO sites found in the city of Ayutthaya. Much was available to take in, making it a tour that was appealing to all. I did enjoy viewing the railway market, with the train coming ever so close, and the floating market was a fun and colorful experience; visiting these markets was a nice introduction to the main portion of this tour, which being Ayutthaya. The various temples and ruins are beautiful. There was so much to take in, so much history involved. Having Alex really made us appreciate what we were viewing. She did an excellent job explaining the historical events, what influenced the design of each temple, and made sure we were able to get the best viewing spot for our pictures…thank you, Alex!

  6. What a Blast!!
    (4 months ago)
    Wow what an amazing experience. My tour guide Nina and Driver Nong were fantastic. I took a private tour and traveling to the points of interest was comfortable in the SUV. I was able to sit back and enjoy the views with the additions of the commentary that Nina provided. It was not to much or too little but just right. Nina kept me informed and also provided time for me to take everything in on my own. This tour was one of the best highlights of my trip in Bangkok and Thailand. Nina helped to customize my experience to focus on the things that caught my interest. When we got to the Floating market, I had my own boat which was really nice as I saw many others over crowed. I was able to get a beer and window shop through the different store fronts. We travel through the water roads and got out before the traffic jam right in the middle. I so much appreciated this as we walked and grabbed some noodles and happily people watched those who were jammed in that bottle neck. At the railway market I got to taste some local fruits and treats. What a good time. Every part of the tour was well thought out and made it easy for me to just be a tourist. Both Nina felt more like a friend by the end of the day. I highly recommend this tour. I’ve already decided I will be back to Thailand next year to bring one of my friends and I will hope to grab a tour with Nina and Nong again.

    Ms. Nok’s tour company was recommended to me before coming to Bangkok, and I’m so grateful for it. I had 2 great tours visiting Ayutthaya and the Damnernsaduak Floating Market & Train Market. She was so kind and answered a hundred questions in regards to my whole Thailand trip. Recommend her 💯

  10. 100% fun and immersive tour of the railway and floating markets with cultural stops to complete a great tour day.
    (4 months ago)
    This Guide and Tour will not disappoint anyone. Level of local knowledge and scheduling of times to go places before the heat and crowds can not be under estimated with Nok. I book a local guide with the last 30+ areas I have visited. Nok is at the top of the list. Nok cares about your day with her on your visit to her country. Find out why 70 percent of her guests ask if she is available for the next day.

  11. Fabulous two days in Bangkok and Ayutthaya.
    (4 months ago)
    We had the great pleasure of having Nok, and her excellent driver Jib guide us for the last two days. It was an outstanding experience. Nok is very knowledgeable about all the places we went and she made the tour really fun and interesting. Jib made sure we felt safe and comfortable while she took us to all the places we went. Nok took wonderful care of us and was helpful and considerate in all aspects of her work. She did not rush us as we lingered in the markets and she answered all our many questions patiently and kindly. I would recommend that you book Nok for all the time you have in Bangkok since she'll make it an unforgettable experience. Thank you so much Nok and Jib.
