Why Choose a Private Tour?

A Private Tour Can Make All The Difference!

With a private tour, you and your friends or family can experience the best-kept secrets of the city and ultimately the real Thailand in a personal and special way.

A private tour has several advantages and special benefits over a join-in tour. Probably the most obvious advantage is that a private tour focuses entirely on your interests and those of the friends and family you’re traveling with. You don’t have to worry about the wants and needs of people you don’t know, and you don’t have to go somewhere or do something that doesn’t interest you personally.

Private Tour Guides

That’s because a private guided tour is entirely customizable. Before going on your private tour, you will have the opportunity to discuss your ‘bucket list’ items with our team of experts at Bon Voyage Thailand. Let us know where you want to go and we’ll also suggest places we think you may like that’s not on your original list. Then we’ll finalize your itinerary before your trip so that we can secure your private tour guide and driver. This is especially important during high season when there are so many visitors!

A private tour also goes at a pace designated by you, whatever that may be. On one hand, you can pack your day full of activities and sights. On the other hand, you can take it slow and go at a leisurely speed. This is especially helpful if your friends or family members have a range of ages and physical abilities or if you are traveling with a large group.

In a private tour, your local guide is there to help you visit places that aren’t offered or accessible on a predetermined tour. Just let us know in advance the types of places you’re interested in and our tour team will suggest intimate, off-the-beaten-path activities perfect for your travel style.

Lastly, you will have your private guide full attention. This allows you to have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about a particular place or activity and really dive deep into the culture, history, and other fun facts of whatever place you are visiting. Having such personalized attention will take your tour experience from good to amazing.

Things To Consider When Customizing Your Private Tour

Join in tours have a pre-determined schedule but custom tours don’t. Since you have the freedom to design your own tour, or at the very least make changes or upgrades to existing tours’ itineraries, you should ask yourself a few important questions. These can help you focus in on your preferred activities, such as:

  • Are you into adventurous outdoor activities or would you rather experience less intensive activities?
  • Do you prefer to visit the classic, iconic sites or go somewhere off the beaten path and less touristy?
  • Are you interested in sampling a lot of local (and possibly unusual) food or prefer to eat food that you are familiar with?
  • Family vacation, honeymoon trip, friends’ trip, or solo trip, large group?
  • Would you prefer a fast moving itinerary with many stops or a slow itinerary with more time at each place?
  • How many people are in your group? Be sure to consider the abilities of the youngest and oldest members.
  • You may want to celebrate a special anniversary, making a donation to a local school, visit a church, praying, or taking photos.
  • You have a list of what you would like to do or what you would like to see.

Don’t worry! We will do all the planning, but answering these questions will help us to craft the best personalized itinerary for you. All activities will be chosen in advance so that will all be done in advance.

A tailored itinerary to your unique needs and timing.
