IF you want a trouble free tour of Bangkok and learn all about the city and what it has to offer then this is the place and tour company to book with, Mr George took us around for a day and was excellent nothing was too much trouble. By going with your own guide you ensure you are safe not at prey of the scammers and you can enjoy a good day. How it worked for us, we were met at our hotel in the morning we went to flower and veg markets then on a long tail boat ride (private boat) then onto the Royal Palace and What Po then home we paid for all travel on public transport and admitance fees as we went around and then paid the tour price (very reasonable) at the end. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I booked a tour with Chob. Our guide, Me, came 15 minutes early and waited patiently ready for us to get ready. Her English was very decent, and she shared good information with us. She took us to their "best of Bangkok" tour, which was very nice. We always felt safe with her, and she kept the tour at our comfortable pace. The best part of all, she did not try to sell us anything, or tell us to go shopping at some store. She asked what we wanted, and gave recommendations. The price for the private guide was more than reasonable. At the end of the day, Me took us to a private Thai Massage facility that the locals use, which was an amazing experience. So we highly recommend this tour company and Chob's suggested itinerary .

We were 2 couples, and used our tour to see more of Bangkok and get to the airport on our cruise departure day. One couple had a flight that night, the other stayed at the airport hotel and took an early morning flight the next day. With 4 people and luggage, we had a mini-van and driver as well as a guide.
Our guide "George" was knowledgable and flexible, and a good communicator. We had set up a custom itinerary, but cut some things short and rearranged the order of others as we went along. George was very accomodating to our changes.
Compared to the shore excursons from the ship, this was a far better experience at a much cheaper price. I recommend Chob's agency without any hesitation.

I had four friends visiting Bangkok for a weekend and wanted a short tour put together for an afternoon out. I contacted Chob who made some suggestions on what we should see. The booking process was easy and the tours could be customised to meet our specific needs. We had Maria as our guide who was very friendly and helpful.

Our tour guide, Ms. Pat, was very friendly & knowledgeable and went out of her way to give us a "taste" of Bangkok including providing us with fruit & snacks from "safe" vendors. There's no way we would have seen half as much in the time that we had (2 days) without her to guide us. Thank you!
