“Perfect Tours”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We chose three of Tong's standard tours: Bangkok by public transport; floating market, train market and fishing village; and Ayutthaya.

We had three different guides, Nang, Lillie and Charlies all of whom were excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable with good English. Best still they were all flexible, so they did not insist on sticking to a particular itinerary and suggested alternatives, some of which, such as Charlie's diversion to see a colony of fruit bats, turned out to be higlights.

Before we went I wrote to most of the guides recommended on Tripadvisor. Tong's response was the most comprehensive and one of the cheapest. It is easy to see why Tony is number one guide company in Bangkok!

We booked a 1-day trip to floating market and tiger temple. It also included elephant riding and a short visit to he bridge over he river Kwae. We had a great guide (Nang). She was very helpful and had lots of information about Thailand to share with us. Highly recommended!

“Two days with Pook”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

From the time we booked in Oz to the last day of our tour Tong was always available and prompt with answers to our questions.
Our tour guide Pook was fantastic; she made us all feel special and got us all round the sites we wanted to see and in time for all the attractions which were big days. Elephant bathing, Tiger temple, Monkey feeding, Temples, Markets etc, we saw heaps. She was great with the kids and made our tour a great experience. She is a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable. This is a must to do first.

Thank you Tong and Pook.

“AMAZING EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

I worked with Jerry to do the all-day Bangkok highlight tour, and he was simply superb. He did an excellent job explaining things and was extremely fun. We joked around and there was never a dull moment. I would recommend doing the public transportation to get a better feel for the Sky Train along with all the Canal Ferries and Canal Boat Tour. It was all awesome. I also did the Train Market, Floating Market, Tiger Temple, and Elephant Bath with Nina. She was simply amazing as well. I cannot express how impressed I was throughout the trip. The guides were very knowledgeable and extremely kind. I would recommend Tour with Tong to anyone that comes to Bangkok. I wish I had more time to explore!

“Excellent tour”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We arranged a private tour of Bangkok for our group of 7. Our tour guide was Nang who replaced another guide last minute who had an emergency. Nang was fantastic - her knowledge of absolutely everything was endless. She took us to the temples we had asked to see, guiding us round and explaining everything, making sure we got the photos we wanted. She even showed us the flower and fruit market which we weren't expecting, and was really good. We also did a boat tour of the canals in bangkok which actually turned out to be the highlight of the day. We hired the VIP van for our group, so we had aircon, and Nang kept us topped up with bottled water and cold towels. She also took us somewhere local for lunch as we asked and the food didn't disappoint. All in all, very good value for the 7 of us, and a day that everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
