Private Guide In and Around Bangkok: Custom Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Take a personalized tour in and around Bangkok for a unique look at Thai culture and lifestyles. Your personal guide works with you to tailor a full-day itinerary to the city's top attractions, such as the Grand Palace and Floating Market. Explore distinct neighborhoods, browse the shops, and see key sights all in one day.
  • 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.
