“Take the time to spend a day with Vanguard, its a day to remember”
Off the beaten track. Not your common standard sightseeing tour. More appropriately described as an uncommon "experience". An atypical adventure that's perfect for visitors/tourists looking to venture beyond the obvious, to go deeper into the social fabric of this exotic metropolis with a new-found friend & guide. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
We saw the true Bangkok, (the behind the tourist traps - where people live, work and eat). We worshipped with several religions and were given true insight into the culture and politics of Bangkok
Michael and his team are wonderful. They give everything to show you Bangkok that you will have impressions of a life-time, with full success. It was simply grand! Were were able to accompany them on two tours and had a fantastic time. Who doesn’t book here, misses out on something unique. Thank you very much bangkokvanguards
We were eight, including the guide and we were all greatly impressed. Michael has taken us up-close to “his city” and was able to convince us that Bangkok is indeed something really special. I think without this tour we would have seen Bangkok through different eyes and probably wouldn’t have been as enthusiastic
I have been to Bangkok many times and seen all of the sites. This tour lets you see the real Bangkok - from eating in peoples homes to sitting in a Buddhist ceremony. I love Bangkok and this tour made me love it even more.
We have done many tours all over the world. If you want something different away from the normal tourist trail to see the real life and meet Thai people please use this company
We are Urban Explorers or CEO’s – Chief Experience Officers of bangkokvanguards. We want to break the traditional paradigms of what it means to be tour guides and avoid traditional run of the mill city tours and sightseeing. Our aim is to design and facilitate immersive and fun adventures. The depth of our experience will vary depending on the type and purpose of the program. Apart from exploring our passion is to learn and be a bridge between not just tourists but anyone with an interest in the stories and initiatives of Thailand’s purpose driven citizens, communities and changemakers aka VANGUARDS.
