Best Tour Ever
The tour was very very good. The best in our travel throught Mianmar and Thailand.
The guide speaks English very well and it is very kind.
He took us to the floating market when it doesnt have that many tourists, where we had a splendid local breakfast, in the market.
He also gave us a lot of tips how and where to buy stuff, since the floating market have high prices.
Then took us to the Train market, when it had less tourist, where he explained their traditions and culture, and also had a fantastic mango sitcky rice.
The guide was awesome, and also had a very good and calm driving, with great soundtracks.

Tip Top Tour
This was the final tour we took during our vacation to Thailand and boy was the best saved until last. The trip which lasted approximately 7 hours saw us visiting the floating market at Damnoen Saduk followed by the Maelong Railway Market.
We were picked up at our hotel at 0645 and driven around 1:30 to the floating market. On the way Ben pointed out some of the sights which meant the journey was over in no time.
On arrival at the floating market (Ben was able to park undercover within 30 or so meters of the boat) we were escorted to our boat and set off round the canals. Ben gives useful information such as how much to haggle prior to launch. On the way we stopped at the coconut factory which was interesting too. When we left the boat we were able to walk round the market with our guide always on hand to share his knowledge and experiences.
After around an hour we moved onto the railway market which is absolutely an experience any traveller to Thailand should have. Once again Ben’s experience meant we were in a prime spot for a train’s arrival through the market, astonishingly the marketeers are able to move everything out of the way in a well rehearsed manner just before the train arrives. Whilst we waited on the train Ben sat us at a local juice stall where we sampled some fresh fruit smoothies.
On the way back to the car we stopped off for lunch of chicken and rice. Beware the chilli dipping sauce though....
After that we made our way back to Bangkok arriving back around 2pm.
All in all a great day out. We cannot praise our host (guide), Ben Sinchai, enough. His knowledge and experience definitely made the day for my wife and I. I can highly recommend this tour and will surely use Take Me Tour the next time we are in the area.
