What you’ll do


Beat the layover blues and make the most of your time in a new city – even if it is only for a few hours.

Join one of our local Bangkok hosts in a personalized experience of Bangkok where they'll enable you to see the city through the eyes of a local that knows it inside out!

Tailored to fit your time, budget and interests, some of Bangkok's most famous attractions, cruise along the Chao Phraya River to see the city's stunning, historic architecture or dive straight into the belly of the beast - Bangkok's frenetic markets - to haggle for some gifts to take home.

Having a host by your side means you'll skip the tourist traps and drive into what really matters – Thai food, of course.

Whether you're staying for a night or stopping off for a shorter period, your host will make sure your layover is a memorable one.

City tour

We were only in Bangkok for a day & a half as part of a Far East trip & as neither of us had been to this city before we thought a tour would be a good way to get to know it. Zarut met us at a metro station close to our hotel then we spent the whole afternoon with him exploring some of the main attractions of Bangkok (Wat Pho / Wat Arun). We used the water taxis to get around which was a great experience travelling like the locals do. Zarut was an excellent guide; always helpful with a good sense of humour. We had a lovely lunch in a place Zarut knew - the food was excellent. At the end of our time with Zarut he made sure we got back to part of the city our hotel was in & very kindly spoke with our other city unscripted guide we had booked for an evening trip to make sure she knew where to meet us at.
