Guide was charming, but her English was a little difficult to understand. She took me to the three places I had requested to view, ie. The Grand Palace - imposing, but masses of tourists so hard to see things, and virtually no shade in very hot conditions. Would recommend this earlier in the day. Also saw Flower Market and Jim Thompson's house - lovely old teak building, interesting 30 minute guided tour inside, then lunch at the good Jim Thompson restaurant on same site. The gift shop items were very expensive. A rather expensive tour overall.
Although the company did not get our start time correct - we had a good tour of Bangkok. We were able to hit all the things I wanted to see. Based upon the previous reviews I was hoping the company especially our tour guide would have recommended some things to see. The reviews stated that other tour guides were more personable and had great suggestions for things to see or do. While our tour guide Jean was fine and he did his job - he took me where I wanted to go and provide good detail - I would hoping for some suggestions. We had plenty of time left over but he didn't make any suggestions on other things to see or do. He didn't really have a good spot for lunch like many of the other reviewers stated about their guides. Again, he did his job and it was fine but I was expecting better.
Great tour and guide. We were lucky enough to have Oil as our guide. She tailored to our specific needs and answered any questions we had. She was also able to make changes on the fly if traffic or crowds were too much. We would not have survived all the sites, let alone the Grand Palace.
