My experience with Irene is superb! Irene planned a thorough itinerary (not too pack & tiring yet covers well) that suits our requirement as a family. The planning is easy, simple & responded quick via email. Upon arrival, our private guide Vanna helped out by rearranging our plans as one of us only arrive in the evening. Instead of missing some spots, we manage to go visit the local market & food. She even brought cold towels for each of us the whole time! I would definitely recommend to anyone

5 stars Steve S. 16 Jan 2016


From the first time I contacted Irene K on Viator, she made everything about our trip so easy to arrange. On the day (16th Jan 2016) our Guide of Bangkok was Vanna who was brilliant and a lovely lady. The tour covered the Palace, Temples, River Cruise, Tuk Tuk ride and was a day we will never forget. Quality transport between Port Lembang and Bangkok was in a private mini-van with leather seating. Highly recommended - full review to follow on Tripadvisor.

5 stars Stewart H. 10 Dec 2015

We signed with Irene, and she placed us with Vanna. We could not have been in better hands.Vanna guided tour was fantastic, for our group of 6. We saw most of the must see site in Bangkok, from morning till evening. She extended her time to make sure we were in good hands even after her tour was over. In making sure our connection to getting back to the ship was smooth. Vanna is a beautiful individual, and me me feel it was my sister showing us Bangkok. Will miss you Vanna

5 stars Michele M. 11 Nov 2015

Vanna was fabulous! She was kind, attentive and very knowledgable. We had a wonderful day zipping around Bangkok.

5 stars Patty C. 09 Oct 2015

Need more stars for this one! Irene assigned Vanna for our guide and Bird as our driver. We enjoyed them so very much and I think that they had a good time as well. I can't say enough good things about those two wonderful people! You truly made our trip to Bangkok the best AND Tommy found everything he had been looking for the five weeks prior to finding Vanna and Bird. Thanks so very much and you are now officially a part of our lives.

Irene, you did good! Thanks for everything.

Can't praise Irine's service enough….


Used her service to book our transfers, a day trip, and two shows in Bangkok.

Booking was super easy because Irine was quick to reply to all our emails and had a great suggestions regarding the trip.

Our day Bangkok Highlights Tour was fantastic! Transfer was great! Highly recommend the service and the tour. Definitely rate as a five Stars experience!

BIG THANK YOU FROM Andre and Whitney - GUAM, USA.

Perfect customer service. Immediately answer all my inquiry and very easy to contact her 24/7.

5 stars Howard H. 02 Nov 2012

Hope 5 is the highest number (it didn't say). Irene gave us Rabbit as our guide in Bangkok. What a knockout! He showed us amazing places, including custom things that were not even listed, such as his personal favorate home-town Wat. He was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our many questions about history and culture. Plus, he has a great personality!

We strongly recommend Rabbit and your tour company. Can't imagine anyone better for a guide!

Wir buchten im Oktober einen Tag mit Irene, um uns Bangkok näher anzusehen.

Leider hatte sie selbst keine Zeit, jedoch schickte sie einen Stellvertreter.

Dieser Stellvertreter stellt sich als fast perfekt deutsch-sprechender Fremdenführer heraus, der uns hätte Bangkok nicht besser zeigen können.

Dieser Herr im geschätzten Alter von ca 40 Jahren war ein sehr zuvorkommender, äußerst gebilderter & netter Guide, den wir so immer wieder buchen würden. Seine Sprachkenntnisse hatten uns beeind

5 stars PAULA B. 10 Jun 2012

We had Kathy as our tour guide, Irene had organised for her to take Irenes place as she was busy. Thank god gor Kathy, she was wonderful. Help us out so much. I would recommend her to anyone...fabulous!!!!!

5 stars June P. 30 Mar 2012

Excellent tour with Poppy for the Bangkok Safari tour and learn some Thai words. Poppy, we love you so much!!

Wonderful tour with Poppy - fed wild monkeys, visited train market and tried some delicious fresh fruits, visited floating market and ate the famous noodles (very nice and definately safe to eat), cruised along a fishing village and finished the day with a delicious icecream at Poppy's brand new icecream shop! Very well organised and informative, i would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience something unique in Bangkok :)

5 stars linda C. 06 Apr 2011

Just to tell you how great Irene's service was. We were able to see all the things on our wish list with a very knowledgeable guide. We would recommend her service to all our friends. Our tour was done with comfort and ease.

5 stars Lisa M. 28 Feb 2011

Irene did a great job organizing our trip to Bangkok. We squeezed in everything we wanted to see and more. We had fun and learned so many new things. I would definitely use her again and recommend her very highly!

5 stars Christine Q. 14 Feb 2011

Irene's a wonderful guide. Not only can she show you the sights and help you negotiate for the best shopping deals, she was really professional in helping us locate and communicate with the suppliers! Thanks a million Irene for making our business trip more than a business trip!

5 stars Eric N. 16 Oct 2010

Thanks again for your excellent tour-guiding for me on Oct. 1st. I had a really good time and learned a lot about Thai culture. If my friends come to Thailand next time, I will introduce you to them for sightseeing in Bangkok, because I'm sure they will enjoy themselves in same the way I did.

5 stars Marco R. 15 Sep 2010

Thank you so much for the excellent tour ever! It was such a beautiful honeymoon for us. Bangkok Highlights and Floating Market programs are absolutely fabulous. Will contact you again when we come back to Thailand.

5 stars Elena F. 15 Sep 2010

Irene, thank you for arranging the tour for us! Almost the whole tour was perfect.

5 stars Lewis R. 15 Sep 2010

Hi Irene. Thanks for your willingness to give me another reliable English-speaking tour guide! She was great!. Sincerely, Lewis

5 stars Michael C. 15 Sep 2010

Irene was a great guide, able to show us all sorts of sights usual and unusual in a round Bangkok. All of our adventures with her by car, taxi, long tail boat, ferry were efficient with great commentary. It was a great pleasure traveling with Irene. She took excellent care of us and carefully considered time cost, comfort and interests. We look forward to coming back and seeing more with Irene. Mike and Yoko

5 stars Darrell W. 21 May 2010

Unfortunately I was unable to take the tour with Irene because of the disruptions in Bangkok - the Australian government issued 'Do Not Travel' advice during this period. But she was excellent to deal with, both before and after my cancelled trip, and very professional.

5 stars Karl S. 15 Apr 2010

Irene, made our Bangkok visit memorable. We quickly and safely got to visit all of our sites of interest. One day we had a wonderful experience in the city using all modes of public transportation to get around. (i.e. do it the way locals do it). Irene shared her knowledge of local life, foods, and customs during the tour. We had lots of laughs and fun during the tours and learned an unbelievable amount in three days. We will never forget our experience, Irene, or Bangkok.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi Karl & Ingrid, Thank you for special time you have given me too! You are my American family!

5 stars Nancy K. 03 Apr 2010

A fantastic tour guide experience in Bangkok. I really cannot say enough about the positive benefits of seeing an overseas city with an English speaking native.

Tour Guide Comment: Nancy and Family, thanks for the great pictures! Wonderful family, wonderful trip!

5 stars hugh S. 23 Mar 2010

Irene worked with me for 4 days while I undertook a photographic project in Bangkok at the end of March 2010. I found her to be incredibly knowledgeable on all things in Bangkok. She came up with ideas and suggestions, and was able to arrange everything that I asked. I liked her professionalism. Irene is an extremely nice person, very friendly and easy to get along with. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a great tour guide while in Thailand. Hugh Sitton Bristol, England April 2010

5 stars Timothy H. 26 Feb 2010

Irene provided an excellent customized tour that's rare to find. I've been on a tour in Bangkok before and requested that we see the things that were off the beaten trail, and Irene did not disappoint. The train village although touted in some travel shows, was pleasantly void of the usual large tourist crowds. She offers up the unique experience of taking a boat out to the ocean to check out the oysters and feed some wild monkeys, which offered up some of the most memorable moments on our trip!

Tour Guide Comment: Hey Guys, Thanks a lot for visiting Thailand. Watch out for the MONKEYS!

5 stars Keith W. 24 Feb 2010

My wife and I recently had the opportunity to visit Bangkok for a few days. We made contact with Irene through OurExplorer, and she designed a customised programme for us that suited us perfectly. friendly and efficient throughout making our stay an absolute treat. We would recommend most highly. Keith Ware

Tour Guide Comment: Kieth, Bangkok Hilights , Floating Market, Dinner Cruise ,you have done all!

5 stars Daniel &. F. 16 Feb 2010

We had a great time with Irene, exploring Bangkok and surroundings. Since it was our first Thailand experience we decided to book a tour guide via

After reading several travel magazines we had a general idea of the places we would like to visit. Irene produced a great tour program, connecting seamlessly with our previous place of stay by arranging an air conditioned minibus to our hotel in Bangkok. Highly recommeded !

5 stars Terri W. 25 Jan 2010

As a group of 5 and who insists to have a native speaker guide, we have booked Irene for one day tour around Bangkok. We enjoyed the tour very much, and she arrange the tour exactly according to our request. I personally enjoy the Thai style massage the most, but my parents are impressed by the Grand Palace. We will be back for sure. Thanks again.

Tour Guide Comment: Ni Hao Terri & Family! Hope to see you all again in the near future. Xie Xie!

5 stars Gayda H. 20 Jan 2010

Had a wonderful tour with Irene. She met us at our hotel at the appointed time and had a wonderful 1/2 day of the city. We would highly recommend her as she was very informative and professional. Thanks Irene for a wonderful afternoon in Bangkok

Tour Guide Comment: Hi Gayda & Nabril, thank you! it was a short trip in Bangkok but glad you did enjoy it. Hope you had great time in Burma too. :)

5 stars stefan G. 26 Dec 2009

Had a wonderful time with Irene. She was very flexible in scheduling and the tour was great; covered the main areas i wanted to in Bangkok. She also took the time to answer all my questions without hesitation and helped me get a handle on Bangkok. Would definitely recommend booking.

Tour Guide Comment: Stefan, Wishing you Happy New Year 2010. Have fun in Shanghai & Tokyo. Will try to visit u in Philadelphia. Thanks!

5 stars YZ Y. 12 Aug 2009

Certainly a full 5 thumbs review. As the other clients state, the sightseeing tours of Irene are top class. Superb! YZ

Tour Guide Comment: Hi Yahal and Liza, Thank you for your kind comments. Hope you also had a great time in Chiangmai. Any time you come to Thailand, let me know.

5 stars Mary G. 30 Jul 2009

The itinerary we want was kind of out of the way, but Irene was flexible to accomodate us. And when we were talking about some things that we wanted to check out, she never hesitated to bring us there even though it was not part of the agreement. We experienced tuk tuk & taxi boat with her. As stated in her services, we had a tour guide and shopping companion all in one. Thanks Irene for the time, and hope to see you again if & when we go back to Thailand.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi MarryGrace and Ernie, Thanks a lot. I think you did well with the shopping list.

5 stars Peter G. 28 Jul 2009

My wife and I and our seven year old daughter spent two days with Irene in Late July. I didn’t want a packaged tour as I have a phobia about organised tours and groups!

Irene was willing and able to change the itinerary upon request and this allowed my wife to fit in some unplanned shopping. I will certainly recommend Irene to any friends or people I know who are heading to Thailand especially if they have children as my daughter thought she was brilliant! Kind Regards, Peter Gamblin - Sydney.

Tour Guide Comment: Hi Peter,Marryanne,Charlotte, Kob Khun Ka for the great time we had. Hope to see you again soon.

5 stars mike S. 22 Jul 2009

From eating in out of the way restaurants where we where the only non Asians and trying different foods which we would normally not know about, going to the flower market and china town,seeing temples and being told about their history Irene did an excellent job. travelling by boat,tuk tuk,taxi and ski train, she took us everywhere with the least possible hassle. We would certainly use her again and highly recommend her. mike/Anna

Tour Guide Comment: Mike and Anna, "Taken" is real good. I love it. Thai food is great, isn't it?

5 stars maria C. 22 Feb 2009

On Feb/09 I e-mailed Irene about showing me the sites around Bangkok. I had a couple of trips I was interested and she was able to accomodate my wishes and more. We met several days for diferent excursions; Some of the things I wanted see and do were the floating market, the Grand Palace & ride an elephant. We did all that and so much more, we went to a fishing village by boat where we fed the wild monkeys. Went by rail to the Kwai river. Superb Guide recomended A+ RELIABLE and Honest! IDEAL

Tour Guide Comment: you rock, criss

5 stars Sally B. 19 Dec 2008

Irene was an excellent guide and a lovely person! With only one day free & a group including both old & young she tailored the day to suit our needs perfectly. We saw the best bits of Bangkok and Irene provided lots of interesting information.

5 stars Kelly L. 30 Oct 2008

We had a wonderful day with Irene in Bangkok for City and Temple tour. But a even greater day outside Bangkok with her.It was the most memorable days for our Thailand trip. We visited the Railway market, Floating Market.And we headed to the Gulf of Thailand, feeding monkeys. We also visited oyster farm and mangrove plantation, seeing how fisherman live in their daily life – impressive.Anyone would like to come to Thailand, I would say go with Irene. Money worth spent!

4 stars ina J. 22 May 2016

Overall it was nice and flexible. The tour guide is very friendly and kind.

We would like to hear more history and explanation of the place.

However, my guests could not understand the English easily. Irene's English would be easier to understand for us.

We would like to eat good food - but we did not get good food - and walked too far for a not so sure place. It was hot so it was hard. A better handle cud make the experiences much enjoyable.

We loved that he took photos for us. Th

4 stars Lori G. 24 Dec 2013

We toured the city while there was political unrest. Our guide kept us safe and was fluent in English. It was difficult to get around the city due to the protesters but we made the best of it.

Perfect tour. Really enjoyed.

Good and caring for the customer even-though her proxy was with us - because try to get a guide that can also speak Chinese to satisfy my parents too, as my wife and kids prefer English guide.

4 stars lucy L. 25 Apr 2010

She is very friendly, she recommanded a Chinese speaking guide for our family, very nice guy, he has taken care of all my family members very patient and carefully.

Tour Guide Comment: thank you!

4 stars Elliott B. 07 Nov 2009

My brother and I are two surgeons on a volunteer mission to Cambodia. We first stopped in Bangkok. This was my 5th trip to Bangkok, my brother's first.

Irene showed up on time, her English was perfect and she showed us all the sites I wanted to visit. minus was that 2 cabs drivers tried to cheat us. Instead of protesting she just gave in. One cab driver wouldn't turn on the meter. I refused to pay. She said she negotiated 35 baht. That should have been out of her pocket not mine.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Elliott.The old man taxi driver actually drove us to main road, taxi fare should ‘ve been 45 bht but I told him we would give him only minimum rate of 35bht(USD 1.06) which I think is fair enough for an old man. In Bangkok Taxi fare starts at 35bht

4 stars Joe W. 14 Oct 2009

We enjoyed the Bangkok half-day tour with Irene very much.Can’t speak for my lovely girlfriend, but I especially enjoyed the long-tail boat canal tour.Irene took us to a inexpensive and convenient lunch at the Thai Navy Officers' Club overlooking the Chao Phraya River.At the end of the tour, she dropped us off at a nice day spa not far from our hotel for a Thai Massage.One suggestion-due to the horrible traffic in Bangkok, recommend that Irene consider using public transportation.Good luck! Joe

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Joe! Take care of yourself and of course your lovely girl friend. she is brilliant!

4 stars Rosemary M. 02 Mar 2009

Irene's tours are very enjoyable. She is knowledgeable about Thailand's history and every site that we visited. Her command of English is very good. A suggestion for improvement would be for her to arrive at the agreed time more promptly.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks for the feedback Rosemary. I will take more care on arrival time in future.

4 stars Jean L. 16 Jun 2008

Irene has been very nice and helpful during my whole trip in Thailand. She speaks perfect English. I learned a lot from her guiding in Bangkok, the grand palace, temples, local life...... And, I love the fruit shakes in the market.
