A wonderful trip
She is more like a friend bringing us around sight seeing rather than a local guide. Wonderful experience. Kids enjoyed the trip very much and her company as well. Definitely a must try.
Nene was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all enjoyed the tour with her. She was extremely patient in answering all our questions and we appreciate her kindness. We highly recommend Nene! Excellent job!
Historical, enlightening, easy-going
Tatchaya was incredibly friendly and chatty, making us laugh throughout the trip. A fantastic driver, she made us feel very comfortable and accomodated our every need.
The itinerary had some changes but she made sure to let us know of these via message before we booked :)
We really enjoyed all of the sights, particularly Wat Mahathat. It was nice to get some local food at the market also. She was full of interesting information and facts!
Thank you Tatchaya :)
