TONY FROM SINGAPORE


We would highly recommend guide Chen as a tour guide to everyone. We had incredible experience exploring


The Grand palace, temples and canal trip with him. He showed us that he is very high experienced guide. The trip


was well organized by his company so everything run smoothly. Our guide help us get the most from time in Bangkok.


Without this good guide, I don't think I can get lots of information. Thanks very much my Thai friend.

TAKEMASA FROM JAPAN


We had an amazing time and the best day ever. Our guide, kai was truly fantastic. Her English and knowledge about


the sites were second to none. We did tiger temple morning program plus the bridge over the river kwai, cemetery,


lunch and of course the tour went smoothly without any hiccup. Kai, taught us correctly how to greet in thai


that impressed us very much. She told us that many people can "wai"--how to greet in thai style but very few can do it


correctly. Took a photo and feed teenage tiger, walk with them were really amazing time of our life. Lunch by the bridge


over the river kwai were excellent both the taste of the food and the scenery by the riverside. Thanks for great job


you did it for us. Will definitely use only this agency again next time.

THE GUZMAN FROM PHILIPPINE


We recently went on a private tour to grand palace, temples boat trip and ayuttaya with friendlygointer.com and


we could not have asked for a better guide. Spectacular two-day tours were truly fabulous. Our guide was knowledgeable


and patient. He explained interesting cultures and did everything we expected him to do for us. Large van just for


2 of us and it was clean and new. We highly recommend using friendlygointer.com and for us this is the only travel agency


I'll deal with in bangkok.

SURA KUMAR FROM INDIA


Jenny was our guide for a recent visit to Bangkok. She has extensive knowledge of the history of Bangkok and


she shared it with us to provide a unique insight of the temples and the remarkable the king who had the thing built.


Jenny met us at the airport and returning us to the airport for our outbound flight. We learned a lot much more about Bangkok,


its cultures and people than we would have been possible to do them on our own. Thank you.
