Bangkok City Tour with VIP guests - excellent

Our host Chatchai gave our corporate guests a memorable 8 hour tour of Bangkok. Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun with plenty of amusing and interesting information. Chatchai got the right balance between information and entertainment. Highly recommend and will use City Unscripted again.

Amazing experience! Best Day of my whole trip was in Bangkok with Kat!

I can not say enough amazing things about Kat!! This was my very first time coming to Bangkok and I was overwhelmed as to where to go and what to see. I gave Kat some ideas of what interests I had and things I wanted to see and she made all my Bangkok dreams come true. She was very knowledgeable about all the areas we went to. She was great at communicating with locals. She took us to all kinds of fun little spots that most tourists don’t know about, these spots really showed me a beautiful side of Bangkok that I would have totally missed otherwise. She helped me experience and understand some of the culture of Thailand and explained the rules at the Temples to show respect while I was there. She went the extra mile to make this day special just for me! There was no cookie cutter tour or strong suggestion to go certain places. She listened very well and helped me see all the things in wanted to see. I would recommend Kat to all my family and friends of all ages that are coming to Bangkok, weather it’s there first time or there 10th time. Thank you Kat you helped me make memories to last a life time!

Hire Zarut

We had an absolutely brilliant day with Zarut. He is intelligent, knowledgeable and insightful and most of all flexible. We spent a day in the off beaten neighborhoods and exploring wats and canals, had a terrific lunch in a very local place and ended at a tailor who’s handwork impressed even me. By all means hire him!!!

Hire Zarut

We hired Zarut for a full day tour of the canals and unknown neighborhoods of Bangkok... and he pulled through 100%! He is witty, informed, knowledgeable, flexible and has great grasp on Thai culture and traditions. Lunch was delicious, at a small 6 table restaurant we never would have found on our own. He even took extra time to take me to a tailor at the end of our tour, the like of who’s Workmanship impressed even me. You’re missing out if you don’t hire him
