Great initiative to discover another part of Bangkok. At a leisurely pace, you walk through little streets, and discover aspects of Bangkok you would otherwise never find (I've been living in Bangkok for almost 2 years now, and most of the sights were new to me). Of course, very environmentally friendly. The guide was very knowledgeable and, perhaps more importantly, very enthusiastic, taking you along with his stories. A nice extra touch is the (mostly black & white) pictures that the guide took along to show how certain areas we were visiting looked like 50-100 years ago. In other words: a perfect attraction!

Thank you for the kind words. We try hard to tweak our walks just enough to make sure everyone finds in them the things they like or are interested in. Big smiles of the locals and happy walkers make it all worthwhile!

“Great way to discover the real Bangkok and its people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

We went in a small group. The guide's English was excellent and he had an amazing amount of stories. I love the old photos they showed of places along the tour - a bit of before and after. That was very cool. The other thing I really loved were the samples of local snacks, unusual but delicious. Finally I love the photo ops. I took some great pics of crazy food and lovely buildings! Recommended!

It's so great to hear you had a good time on the walk! Our aim is for the right balance between having learned something new and having had a great time doing so. Also, food aficionados such as yourself always seem to have a great time sampling some local (unusual?) delicacies and that's what we want too!

“Belgian review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

I really enjoyed the two guided walking tours in Bangkok. We got a lot of information on the culture, religion, habits of the Thai people.
The pictures of some places we visited , sometimes of 50-80 years ago were very nice!

We've been to Bangkok several times and we like to walk on our own. We had heard about them from a friend and booked in advance coz it was cheaper. They were helpful when we called to change the date, coz we were returning from the beach a few days later than expected. The walk was great! It wasn't too hot and the guide was quite very good, I thought. He just kept coming up with these funny stories and he had a lot of cool historical pictures. It's a shame we ended up going on the last day of our trip coz we would have gone on all three walks if we'd had more time.

It was very much our pleasure having you on our walk. We understand that travel plans can change and so any time we can help a customer, we're happy to do so. We will be adding new walks into other parts of Bangkok later in the year, so we would like to invite you along again during your next trip! :)

“More than just another walking history tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

It was way beyond my expectations and far from following around a guide giving boring history lessons at each stop. The route was quite diverse, from the river to palaces, forts, monuments, temples, canals and parks culminating in an intriguing location which I shall not divulge as to spoil it for others. At each prominent stop, photos from "bygone" days were produced taken from the same viewpoint as we were looking. The english speaking guide was very knowledgable and able not only to describe the "attraction" but answer questions with some confidence. The guide's character, knowledge and humour helped make the walk very enjoyable indeed. Expect many photo opportunities along the whole of the route. Expect also being taken off the "main steam" routes down into small backstreets, watch artisans at work and the guide will let you in on some "secrets" and introduce you to some delicious Thai snacks.
