I felt an incredible ease with Martin, our docent, from the moment we met. He was extremely knowledgable and thoughtful and was wonderful in indulging us in answering all of our questions, allowing us to leave Bangkok with a well-formed view of its history and culture. I loved traveling by boat during the tour and really enjoyed the stops we made, complete with stunning views and fascinating culture. Thanks again Martin! I can't wait to return to Bangkok, until next time!
Ren was fantastic. Our tour did go a little over but we didn't mind because we were having a great time. Ren was very knowledgeable and it was way better than we had expected. I don't think we would have ever considered taking a boat ride in the canals or the river, but next time we definitely will give it a try on our own! It was really nice to see new areas of Bangkok we hadn't seen and we left the tour feeling more fulfilled than with other tours we have been on. It was great to learn about the different kings, Thai culture, history and politics. Even though we were only in Bangkok for 3 days this tour really enhanced our experience of Thailand.
Martin ensured that he understood what I was wanting to learn and then described where we would go. Martin exposed me to multiple different modes of local transportation and provided fantastic context that enabled me to really understand the Thai culture. I learned more than I was expecting on this tour!
