  1. 2 magical days in Bangkok.

    We shared two amazing days with Katie who adapted the tours to suit my families needs. Katie has a wealth of knowledge on Bangkok as well as having good English understanding. On day 1 . Katie took us to the floating market and railway market and helped us friendly barta with locals and ensured we had the best time. Included in the package was transportation which was essential for my little boy. Katie provided cold bottles of water and encouraged us to try traditional Thai foods which was delicious. On day 2 . Katie took us on a river boat to get the best view of the temples. Then we visited the temples and China town. Katie organized my mother to have a wheelchair as she has a bad knee and pushed her around. Katie took photos of us and treated us like family and did her upmost to ensure our stay in Bangkok was one to remember. By booking with Katie, we saw and experienced parts of the Thailand cultural/ traditions which we would not been able to arrange ourselves. We are so grateful. Thank you.

  4. We visited the Railway and Floating Markets.

    We were met by Nok in the lobby of our hotel at 9am and she was instantly likable, so warm, friendly and funny. She made sure we’d all had our coffees, and then introduced us to our driver (also great) and then we set off to view the Railway and Floating markets. Nok gave us an insight into the City of today and the history of the previous capitals of Thailand (Siam). Throughout the day, she was fantastic and definitely one of the best guides we’ve ever had. I can very highly recommend Nok for your exciting days in Bangkok and surround.

  5. Great way of seeing the Floating and Train markets at your own pace

    NocNoc went way beyond what she needed to, to make this a perfect day. She guided us through the day at our own pace, which was to me, very important because I hate overbearing, route marching guides! I have to thank her for making my family very welcome with a nice smile and with me, a lot of patience was needed! 😃

  6. Crazy Boxing Day experience!
    By Philippa Vernon

    We were picked up promptly at 9am from our hotel by the lovely & knowledgeable Nok for our crazy Boxing Day experience. There were plenty of loo/drink stops on the hour long journey to the Maeklong Railway Market. Had a wander up the tracks and did some shopping - great selection of goods from chicken feet to glitzy jewellery! Plenty of warning as the train rumbles slowly down the track as the stall holders pack away their goods (they do this 16 times a day 🤦🏼‍♀️🤣)! All unscathed we got back in the minibus for a 10 minute journey to the Damnoensaduak Floating Market! Our group of 8 had 2 long tail boats which zoomed along the river passing locals houses, market stalls and the odd monitor lizard basking in the sun. It was crazily busy on the day we went but still enjoyable and would definitely recommend. On the way back to the hotel we stopped for lunch which was about £8 per person. Nok is very friendly and knowledgeable and goes out of her way to ensure a great day. We got back to the hotel at around 18:00 - exhausted! Thank you!

    Fantastic service from Nok and her friend. Nok arrived early to collect us and was very friendly and spoke great English. We had a really great day from start to finish. Lots of sights seen and really comfortable journey. We were given lots of water to travel and return and fresh terry towel when coming home. Excellent service from a very lovely woman. Thanks Nok.

    Guide Nok was absolutely wonderful. She met us at our hotel and was 1 hour early. She messaged us the day before so we knew what to expect and were great with communicating. During our day with her, she shared the coolest things with us and took us to the best spots. She was such a professional and really went above and beyond to make the experience great for us. She also spoke great English and was super funny. We were so grateful to have a tour with her.
