Great local experience
Experience the personalised private tour with Maitree starting with our hotel pick up. At the market, we had a boat to ourselves to tour the area. You can see some unique houses along the river, stops at the local temple and one of the oldest orchid farm in Bangkok. We also get to feed the sacred fish living in the river in front of the temple. After that, it is the pad thai cooking lesson by grandma following by a local feast we got from the market. It was nice experiencing the local culture, food and people through this tour. Will definitely recommend this!

Maitree and the tour experience was great! What a fun day filled with learning and eating! We really enjoyed that the tour was more personal and not in a giant group. Maitree was a great guide and host. We met his family and his grandma taught us how to cook authentic pad thai. Along with the pad thai, Maitree provided us a feast with food that he thought we should try. We highly recommend this tour and definitely would do it again next we are in the area.

An amazing adventure!
Maitree was an amazing host. He picked us up at the hotel and from minute one he was easy going and very comfortable to be around. We had an amazing expirence sailing through the market and getting a uniqe look and the local culture. Maitree then bought some traditional local food and brought us to his home where we got an amazing opirtunity to cook Pad thai with his 81 year old grandmother.
He let us into his home and even showed us his beautiful newborn daughter.
All in all an perfect insight into the Thai culture and we alredy miss being around them.
Could not reccomend this enough!
