Don was my guide for the day. He sat down with me to go over all my options. I had a list of everything I wanted to do and he quickly made a plan to fit it all in. He was so helpful and kind. He even offered to take pictures for me. Would highly recommend this tour option, definitely worth it.

The driver arrived on time and was very assisting on guiding us throughout the trip. He helped and suggested us to cool places in pattaya. He was not in a rush at all and gave us lots of time to enjoy. He drove smoothly and safely all throughout. Kudos!

Donny and the driver were so patient and welcoming. I enjoyed every second of my tour and got many great great pictures taken from Donny. He’s a magician with his camera. Definitely will have tours with him again and highly recommend!

Had a very great day tour! Our guide was prompt, courteous, and so incredibly friendly and helpful-definitely recommend!

Suberb excursion with our guide Kong! Stifling heat but very good day despite everything.
