We have just had an amazing 2 days with our tour guide Nikki in Bangkok. This was the first time we had booked a tour guide directly, having spent hours scouring the Internet and reading numerous reviews. Right from the first enquiry, Nikki responded quickly and in excellent English. He soon put us at ease and prepared an itinery for both of our days based on what we wanted to do, but also adding in some other bits and giving advice to ensure we got the most from each day.

Once we had confirmed with Nikki and paid our deposit, Nikki was in touch to confirm the plan for each day, checking that it suited our requirements, talking to us about where we wanted to go, what we should do at each place, planning times, and just being generally helpful with suggestions. He also arranged travel insurance for the days we were out with him.

Our first day with Nikki was visiting Ayutthaya Historical Park and the second was visiting Kanchanaburi and The Bridge on River Kwai. On both days Nikki picked us up with his driver promptly from our hotel in central Bangkok. Both trips were an hour or two out of Bangkok, and Nikki gave us lots of information about what we would see and what to expect while we travelled to each location. His knowledge of each place was excellent, and we learnt so much about Thailand and the Thai way of life out of the city. He is also handy with a camera, and took some excellent photos for us.

On returning to Bangkok after our second long day, Nikki insisted on taking us around Bangkok to show us some of the sights around China town, some of the temples lit up at night, and the Grand Palace. We even parked up and had dinner whilst out with Nikki, before he dropped us back at the hotel around 11pm.

There are lots of guides available, but I cannot recommend Nikki highly enough. In the two days with him, it felt like being out with a friend rather than someone we had met a few hours previously, as he was so helpful, friendly, enthusiastic, and honest. He was excellent at his job, and clearly loves what he does, even giving us lots of tips of where to visit the days we had not booked him.

Booking Nikki directly as our guide, rather than booking through an organised trip, was an excellent decision, and I have to say the little extra cost was well spent. We hope to return to Bangkok and would definitely book Nikki again.

I definitly recommend Nut (Nikki) as a guide to anyone wanting to experience the highlights of Bangkok (like we did) or if time permits other daytrips around the area. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, makes you feel like home in Bangkok, which is a hard city to visit by your own if you have little time and ar a first-timer here. Nikki will make your day-visit to Bangkok perfect, showing you the most important places, explaining thoroughly each attraction's history. Also the transportation was flawless, everything perfect organised, Nikki also took us to local restaurants where literally no tourists come to eat, only locals...and the food was...incredible! Nikki is also a great person, with who you can talk about literaly anything, from culture, family, way of life and any other curiousities you have about Thailand and it's great people! Thank you Nikki for a great day and when we return to Bangkok we will definitly choose you again!

Nikki is an excellent guide. His Kanchanaburi tour is excellent.
He knows his way around and is happy to go out of his way for his clients. After returning to Bangkok following a long day of touring, he offered to take two guests in his car around city to see some evening highlights! Where does she get the energy?
A man who obviously loves his job.
Highly recommended.

There are 9 million tuk tuk's in Thailand and that's a fact,but we didn't use one of them ! Nikki walked us through the streets of Bangkok, and with his expertise and knowledge gave us a fantastic tour of this city during our short stay there. His friendly manner made us feel at ease in this busy, vibrant place - nothing was too much trouble and he went out of his way to make sure we had the most out of our visit. Would not hesitate to recommend him ! Keep on doing what you do well Nikki !!
