Patthanant Ketkaew

Guide profile:

Sawasdee Ka, My name is Jo and I am a certified/registered tour guide residing in Phuket since 2010. My passion is meeting people from around the world and showing them Thailand’s “gem” called Phuket. I specialize in providing customized private tours based on my clients’ time availability and interests to make sure that your trip is most enjoyable and memorable. Some suggested highlights can include Phang Nga Bay, James Bond Island, exploring the mangrove forest, snorkeling, canoeing the caves in the bay, river rafting and of course a land trip to see Old Phuket Town, Big Buddha and many other inland sights. This is “your” vacation and so your wish is my command. I can also arrange for very reasonable, price wise, airport pick up, drop off, van/driver, restaurant reservations related logistics as well.

Note: please check my availability before booking. The rates provided are strictly for my services as a guide. Transportation etc. costs are additional.

We had a great time with Tarn. She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited. We have a 6 year old daughter and Tarn was great with her. Tarn took time to explain things to us and also to her.

We felt very good with Tarn, like hanging out with a friend.

We also have to thank Jo for answering all of our questions prior to our trip.

We had a great experience!

We were late booking so Jo was fully booked but she organised Tarn to be our guide for the day. Tarn was very friendly, knowledgeable and spoke very good English. She was great at accomodating our wishes for the types of things we wanted to see. Highly recommend Tarn as a guide! Many thanks!

5 stars Gina U. 12 Mar 2019

Cat was our guide since Jo was already booked. Cat was our favorite guide from all our experiences. She was highly knowledgeable, respectful of her culture and most important, fun. We enjoyed every minute of our experience and learned so much. Excellent!

5 stars Angel A. 16 Feb 2018

Tan is simply great and has a very outgoing personality. She's very knowledgeable of the area, and helped us quite a bit to navigate to people who couldn't speak English. it would have a major problem in the restaurant had not she intervened in our behalf. She's funny and has a lot of energy to entertain us. Definitely a super super tour guide worth every penny spent.

5 stars Kevin L. 18 Oct 2017

5 stars Terri W. 10 Jul 2017

We had an amazing day. Jo ended up being sick but made sure we were taken care of and set us up with a fabulous guide. He was super informative and lots of fun and great at taking pictures for us. Could not have asked for a better day. He made sure we ordered the right food we would love and was patient when we wanted to take extra time to feed more monkeys. A true pro. Clearly Jo would have been too if she set us such a wonderful replacement. Thank you!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your time to review, Terri. That's mean a lot to me incase that I cannot go by myself, really appreciate. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the day with Lee. Hopefully will have another opportunity to be your tour guide when you come back to Thailand again.

Astonishing!. Very flexible when it comes to managing your time and taking you to breathtaking views. I was lucky and grateful to have her agree to pick me up and drop me at the airport on the last minute since I was having trouble with the hotel service. When I asked her to take me to everything local, including the restaurants, my jaw dropped! It was more than what I bargained for! So, if you are thinking of visiting Phuket, she is the best! You will never go wrong with Pat, very knowledgable.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Ay, I'm glad that I was in your birthday memorable this year

We were lucky enough to get Jo as our tour guide.!

We highly recommend Jo(that's how she's called).

5 stars Michael C. 04 May 2013

I highly recommend Patthanant! She was awesome. Very flexible and very wise to all that is Phuket. She took me to places definitely not on the tourist hot list, but those places were great! If you are in Phuket you can't go wrong with a tour with Jo (her short name!).

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for your compliment Michael, this wil encourage me to learn and discovery new things to serve my clients. Also wish to have a chance to take you tour again in the future.

Jo was GREAT!!! Jo picked us up from our hotel at Merlin beach for our tour, from that moment we knew our tour was going to be a good one. Jo is very knowledgeable about all things phuket with a great sense of humour and personality. Jo made our day very enjoyable. I believe she went above and beyond with our tour. I'd highly reccommend Jo as your tour guide. Just wonderful.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you ver much for your review Dan, sorry to get back late. I would love to say that I was really enjoy time with 2 of you. I wish NSW will win again next year :)
