Bangkok Private Tours

If you wished you had a close friend in Bangkok to give you an insider’s tour of the city, you’ve come to the right place. My name is Chris Rowthorn, and I write for Lonely Planet. For the last 15 years, I have spent part of each year in Bangkok exploring and learning about this wonderful city. I started Bangkok Private Tours to provide handcrafted private tours of Bangkok for travelers who demand more than an impersonal bus tour. We specialize in small, intelligent custom private tours of Bangkok for educated travelers who want real insights into the people, the history, and the culture of the city.

Working closely with my guides, I’ve designed tours of Bangkok that take in a good selection of off-the-beaten track sights and a few must-see attractions. Where possible, we also stop at authentic local restaurants. We can also work with you to design custom tours to take into account your special interests and needs. In addition, I also offer a tour to the old capital of Ayutthaya. For those planning a trip, I offer full consulting about Bangkok — we can help with shopping, accommodation and planning the perfect time in “the Big Mango.”

I have spent a lot of time finding and training my guides. They all speak fluent English and Thai and are a storehouse of interesting information about Bangkok and Thai culture. More than just guides, they will serve as your personal assistant during your time in Bangkok, making sure that your trip there is stress-free and special in every way. Best of all, your tour will be a totally private experience: I never put strangers together in groups. And you can walk as much or as little as you like — we can provide a private car for your tour, giving you the option of driving from site to site.

So please join us for an inside look at this wonderful city!
