At the beginning we did not start out as tour guides but as urban explorers, going into the less accessible or areas of Bangkok that are not even on the radar by locals. From the abandoned highrise buildings of the 1997 financial crisis, the urban realms along rail tracks or beneath elevated expressways or the intricate maze of old city’s alleys. Through our deep knowledge of the city we earned a reputation as location scouts for documentary film, magazines and other media production. Today we let this knowledge characterize our style of taking you through Bangkok that include popular areas but more importantly also the hidden side of the city, the human and community side of this Megacity of 18 million. We do so through walking and multiple transport adventures that will give you a deeper understanding of the real DNA of a an Asian megacity that is undergoing a tremendous transition.

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
