What people say about this tour

Great experience with "Bowie". We practically had a private tour. She even catered as best as she could for our young kids. Loved the boat rides and canal shop experiences.

My husband & I took the Thonburi food and canal tour with Bowie during our trip to Bangkok. We joined one other couple to experience some great local food. Bowie took us to small locations that we would never have found as a tourist who does not speak Thai. She allowed us to customize our food tastes based on our tolerance of spice and mixed in a few non-food sights to give a break (temple visit, art display, feeding fish in the canals). We had a great time and saw a side of Bangkok that was new to us.

Our tour guide Bowie was perfectly one time with a big smile on her face, which she kept on for the rest of the day. I did the tour with my girlfriend and my parents (their first time in Asia), Bowie did everything to make them feel comfortable and happy. She made us try local delicacies which I never tried before and we discovered the local markets and canals of Thonburi.
