Da da (the guide) was attentive and lively, gave lots of context to how and why things were the way they were (such as the design, the provenance of statues and paintings). He also peppered his tour with snippets of Bangkok history and geography, interspersed with his personal life history. It was a pleasant, comfortable, and relaxing tour. At no point it was hurried or that he appeared impatient with my questions and requests. I also appreciate the ride and the driver’s careful driving. The car is roomy and comfortable.

Great tour with Elena. As a family, she showed us great and impressive corners of BKK off the beaten track that we had never seen before. She also responded to our requests, since we had our mobile phone display exchanged in Chinatown. Thank you very much, dear Elena, for this great day.

We were picked up at the hotel on time and had a perfect trip. Our tour guide Kai was very nice and told us everything we wanted to know. And much more. Always my pleasure !

The tour has been very complete, the Pauwan guide has been fantastic and has helped us and taught us many things. We had a great time, we would definitely repeat.

On time. Great service. Dada was an excellent guide.
