I wanted to thank you so much for arranging great hotels and the tours for us in Thailand. The Dream Hotel was just fantastic and was definately the type of Hotel that Harvey and I appreciate. The tours you chose for us were fabulous, I was hesitant given I had just had major surgery, and wondered if I would even go on the tours. I definately would not have missed anyof them. THANKS SO MUCH!
Jim I wanted to give you some feedback on the people who drove us, toured us etc.
First of all, Chuli—she made our stay in Bangkok so memorable. Her command of the English language was very good and we could understand her fully. Not only that, but she was truly interested in us and was very social. She told us every little detail as we travelled to our tour, and she made sure she pointed out every little thing that she thought would interest us. SHE WAS AN ABSOLUTE GEM!!! She never stopped talking and we loved her to pieces. She taught us how to write our names in Thai, and wrote us the most beautiful card with a terrific message in it. On the flap she wrote "Please smile before opening". She does truly need to be rewarded for being an exceptional tour guide. She made your Company look terrific!!!! The driver, whose name escapes me, was also delightful-very polite, happy, very good driver, and as social as he could be given there was somewhat of a language barrier. A real gentleman. Arrived at the hotel long before he needed to, and waited so patiently, always smiling. Highly recommend both of these people.
Then there was Jittima–she too was very social and tried very hard to give us as much information along the way as she could. Difficult to understand, but nonetheless a great little tour guide. She struggled with expressing some things, but tried so hard, and made a big effort to communicate. Jittima took pictures of us, made sure I was OK on stairs, just a real caring little lady. She had a very "warm" personality and we felt like we knew her for years! She too deserves to be acknowledged for her efforts, and would definately have her as my tour guide again.
Overall Jim, the trip was fantastic, and we are looking to come back next year. We are planning on stopping on our way to India, so may be looking to you to provide great accomodation and tours again at that time.We definately will have much more time next year to stay longer. This year it was the USA, Guatemala, then Thailand, and our holidays were pretty much used up. We were sorry we didn’t get a chance to have coffee with you as we had planned—kind of forgot I guess.—but maybe next time. We had a blast at the Siam Paragon, Robinsons down from our hotel, MBK(not sure I have that right) shopping centre, night markets, —wish we were back there!
Thanks so much for the effort you and your group put into making our flights so easy, our tours so enjoyable and our trip so positive.
