Bangkok guide

Can someone recommend a guide for a day or two in Bangkok in November?

Many will refer you to Tong, but we have always used Ratt. Do a search on this forum for her email and info. Note you don't need a guide - just a driver. They both know quite a bit about the sights so you sort of get both.

Thanks all. Any contact info available? We are only in Bangkok for 2.5 days (3 nights). Our hotel provides a 1/2 day tour/transportation for the Palace, so we are looking for seamless transportation and guidance for 1-2 of the other days.

Hi you could also give Wandee a try- she is a brilliant Guide. Very good company- knows her subject is very experienced and takes her job seriously- with good Thai Humour.We have had some first class tours with her in an around Bangkok over the last 2/3 years and we plan to re hire next year when we return. Never let us down always on time, always gave us the tour and more that we expected and is fairly priced. You could always ask her for a price and program. I don't think that you will be disappointed. She is generally quick to respond. If you book her she will ask for a small deposit- it is quite safe and seems to be normal practice. Whatever happens enjoy Thailand
Her email is [email protected]

Tong and Ratt never replied to my emails from 2 months ago. I returned from Thailand 2 weeks ago and had numerous private 3/4 and full day tours with Nana from Destination Asia. She was absolutely fabulous. Friendly, informative, happy and her love of Thailand shone through. I even wrote to the company to thank her as I was so impressed.
