Nina was an excellent tour guide. She gave a lot of historical data that gave context to what we were seeing and made a big difference to how much we enjoyed the sights. Nina has a wonderful personality and was very gracious throughout the entire tour.

Ive been to Grand Palace and the other temples in the past, but this tour was extremely different because of our tour guide, named Nina or Pranee! She knows the history too well and have taken an extra mile to make the tour enjoyable. She also gave tips where to shop and eat. Best of all she gave so much care during the trip! Many many thanks!

Had a great tour with a fabulous guide who was very friendly and happy to answer lots of questions. A really relaxed way to see some of the major sights. So pleased we went for the morning tour as depute the heat we had time between sites in air conditioned car. Prompt and courteous service would highly recommend. Never been disappointed yet with La Vacanza Travel trips.

From the moment we booked with La Vacanza Travel was very pleased with the email correspondences regarding the tour with confirmation and time of pick up. We were met at our hotel by our tour guide Nina and air condition mini van. Nina was a very good tour guide everything went smoothly and we saw everything, the Grand Palace, golden Buddha and leaning Buddha . Nina told us about places as we drove to each destination and history of the royals and even took us and arranged a long boat taxi. We really enjoyed our tour there were 4 of us .
