HARRY is the BEST!
Vittoria R, 15-09-2022
We had an amazing time with Harry today. He was very fun, friendly, knowledgeable, kind and we shared many laughs! He guided us through the markets while explaining some history and interesting facts, he gave us samples of local food and introduced us to the owners of some shops. He even gave us a special local experience of helping a vendor cook coconut pudding on their boat! Thank you for everything, Harry!
First Time in Bangkok

My mom and I decided to book this tour through Viator and we had a fun time :)Both markets were fun and interesting to visit. Harry, our guide, was attentive and nice. He was also funny and very knowledgeable of both markets and told us alot about Thai culture and life. We enjoyed going there very much and I think a first timer in Thailand should definitely see it at least once. Give the tour a try and let Harry guide you around the outskirts of Bangkok! My favorite things that we ate were the pad thai, coconut ice cream and fresh mango!

(P.S. our driver was also great and even dropped us off at the mall at the end of our tour!)
Best experience in all of Thailand

Scott (tour guide) and Mr. Pong (driver) were absolutely fantastic. Scott is extremely knowledgeable and explained so much to us. Our tour started with pick up at our hotel, where Scott and Mr Pong greeted us with big smiles, waters, and explained the day to us. We got in the very nice car and drove to the Maeklong Railway where Scott explained so much to us, took amazing pictures for us, and bought us great food! Next we went to a local home to see how the village people live, and how they harvest coconuts. Last we visited the floating market, which was truly spectacular and special, Scott bought us more amazing food. This was the best experience we had in our whole 2 weeks in Thailand and HIGHLY RECOMMEND Scott and Mr Pong! Thank you again for such a special amazing memorable day!
Amazing

All of it but floating market, Also our tour guide Nok and bus driver made our day very special. They looked after us well and Nok got us to try lots of local food at the market. She also surprised us with some extra activities on our tour. We had the best day and will definitely organise a tour with this company again in the future.
