Private Guide In and Around Bangkok: Custom Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Explore Bangkok just the way you want to on a private, totally customizable tour. You set the pace and tell your personal guide what you’d like to see, choosing from sights like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Chatuchak Market, and more. Follow an itinerary tailored to your interests, get help navigating the sprawling city via public transit or taxi, and take time to ask all the questions you might have.
  • Customizable full-day tour of Bangkok with a private guide
  • See only the sites that interest you following a personalized itinerary
  • Break away from the big tour groups and buses by taking public transit
  • Avoid tourist traps and find authentic Thai food
What to Expect
Connect with a private guide at your hotel in the morning, and share your ideas and interests so he or she can come up with a customized plan for the day. Bangkok is a huge, sprawling city, but you'll gain confidence following your guide’s lead as you walk, ride a taxi, cruise on a commuter boat down the Chao Phraya River, or take the public BTS Skytrain (transportation costs are at your own expense). Gain local insight into Thai culture as you visit the city's top sights like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Chatuchak Weekend Market, and Khao San Road. Get recommendations on the best spots to eat for gourmet or street food, learn about the city’s history, and visit tucked-away places that most tourists miss during the full-day tour.
