Laidback, Informative, Authentic

I liked this tour because Fawzi is interested in cultural exchange and sharing local history. He isn’t one to just tick the boxes of where to take you, but instead tells you what you’d like to know, and can share about local culture and history too. He’s like a trusted insider who can give all sorts of pointers and advice to tourists.

Enlightening and fun!

It was a very enjoyable and educational trip! Our young children were comfortable and had lots of fun especially the boat ride along the canal. The guide was very friendly and sincere with his service. The experience was more than expected! If you are looking for something off the beaten road without the tourist crowd then this is definitely for you!

A very authentic, eye-opening, heart-warming tour with special access to a rural Thai community!

I had a great time on this Takemetour local tour! My local expert -- Pitipong -- was very engaging, friendly, and knowledgable on the tour. He was also very easy to communicate with, spoke good English, and was very flexible with me on the timing and duration of the trip. He had such a positive attitude that I loved -- every time he explained something to me, he would smile with such pride and happiness of being a Thailand native, and being able to share this hidden gem with me. Above all, his hospitality and professionalism were great. He brought me to a local Muslim community that I would never know existed in Bangkok without him and Takemetour's access to it. I got to see how Thai locals really live, shop at their local farmer's market, and visit a "date fruit farm" that was started from one man's love for Thailand. What I loved most was being taken on a boat to the rural community and then experiencing the town like a true local -- it was very raw, authentic, and eye-opening for me. I met an old couple who said they were so happy to have tourists come to their community because they're too old to travel outward these days and they want to share local Thai hospitality with guests and new friends. Overall, it was a humbling experience for me and made me appreciate my life and cultural diversity even more. Thank you to Pitipong and Takemetour for the memorable experience!
