An Unforgettable Experience!
An amazing and unforgettable experience! Nusara (and her husband Korn) made our trip to Bangkok seamless and incredibly memorable. My husband and I only had one full day in Bangkok. We had never been to Bangkok or Asia for that matter, so there was a lot we wanted to try and see in a short amount of time. We contacted TakemeTour to customize an individual itenerary in order to maximize our time and overall experience. It was the best decision we could have made! TakemeTour was incredibly responsive and very easy to to work to with. We were paired with Nusara for our tour. She immediately contacted us via e-mail to introduce herself, which made us feel very comfortable and confident with our decision of booking the tour. Nusara confirmed our itenerary and stated she would meet us in the lobby of our hotel at 7:30 and wished us safe travels. Through her e-mail communications we could tell she was a very polite and friendly and we looked forward to meeting her once we arrived in Bangkok.
There in our lobby promptly at 7:30 on Saturday morning Nusara greeted us with a big beautiful smile and "Swat de ka". Nusara speaks English very well, which was a tremendous help for my husband and I, because neither of us knew any Thai. However, that quickly changed thanks to Nusara! She walked us out to her car and introduced us to her husband Korn. He was just as friendly and welcoming as Nusara. Nusara stated that he was going to be driving us to each of the places that we wanted to see on our tour. This worked out beautifully! The traffic in Bangkok is crazy - the cars, trucks, buses, tuk tuks, motorbikes, pedistrians all zip around in what appears to be a totally unorganized and chaotic state yet we never witnessed any accidents - so obviously, they all know what they are doing. I just know I could never drive there and I've lived in New York and Chicago. Korn was able to navigate through the busy traffic and delivered us to each destination without any problem. This allowed Nusara to easily chat with us and help us learn a few key phrases in Thai during our car rides.
The car was immaculate and they provided us chilled bottle water and a Thailand tour book to enjoy during our ride. Nusara also gave us a delicious traditional Thai breakfast for those commuting to work. She explained that her parents make the breakfast to sell. It was incredibly flavorful and fun to learn what locals eat while commuting to work.
Our itenerary was incredibly full, but we never felt rushed at any of the sights. Korn dropped us off at the entry of each sight and Nusara would quickly and efficiently go and pick up our tickets. This alleviated all of the hassle of having to wait in line for tickets and navigating through the entry points. The way Nusara and Korn had everything organized made the trip so much more enjoyable for us. It was so seamless! Nusara took time to explain the history of the various sights we toured and provided plenty of time for photos and questions. She took numerous photos for us; which was really nice since it allowed both my husband and myself to be in the photos together. After almost 8 hours of sightseeing we parted ways. However, before the tour ended Nusara so graciously offerred to accompany my husband and myself to an evening show of the history of Thailand. The show looked phenomenal and it was so sweet of her to offer to go with us. If we weren't so exhausted from our travels from the US the day before and all of our sightseeing that morning and afternoon we would have definitely gone see it - hopefully, next time!
We can't say enough about our wonderful experience with Nusara and Korn. We would absolutely recommend Nusara to anyone looking to book a tour. You won't be disappointed. We consider our day spent sightseeing with Nusara and Korn as one of our fondest memories from our 14 day Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore trip!

My trip to Ayutthaya with Nusara was great from start to finish. She did a wonderful job of telling the significance of every place we visited and the stories behind them. When the day's great started to overwhelm me, she was very understanding and made sure I had plenty of breaks in the shade to cool off. If I ever come back to Thailand again, I would absolutely try and book another trip with her.
