Great Non-Touristy Tour
We started the tour at noon and it took about 8 hours. Jam picked me up on time at a pier and showed me some places, I would have never seen without her. She is really flexible regarding your interests – so if you’re not into food or flower markets, she shows you something else :-). Particularly, I enjoyed the speed boat trip to Ko Kret and the bike tour on that island. I shot a lot of nice photos on that day! My tip – do the “standard” attractions like Grand Palace, Wat Pho etc. on your own and book Jam for the stuff which is not mentioned in your traveler’s guide.

Everyone Loves JAM!
My brother and I booked the Koh Kret Tour with Jam, and it was amazing! A true off the beaten path tour as we saw very few other tourists in a span of 6-hours. From the market to the relaxing bike ride around the island of Koh Kret, Jam continually made us feel like we were hanging out with a local Thai friend rather than a tour guide.
Jam is very accommodating, easy to talk to, and you can tell she loves people and her job. On top of that, it seemed everyone we stopped and talked to knew Jam and loved her as they always smiled and chatted with her.
We found Jam and her tour to be exceptional, and would recommend her tours for anyone that wants an outstanding guide while visiting Thailand.

Different half day tour 🙂 We started the trip on a pier, for a boat ride, then visit a local market and go for a ride with bicycle rickshaw. The highlight of the day was the following speedboat ride to a smal island. This ride gave an extreme adrenaline rush and I was laughing all the way. Nice bicycle tour on the slow island ended with blind massage… Totally fantastic day with a smart, funny and perfectly skilled guide. I totally recommend it!!!

Day trip to Koh Kret with Jam
We did not know what to expect with booking but were so pleasantly surprised. We had a great day with Jam & her friend Lyn who could not have looked after us better. We experienced the local boat to Koh Kret, followed by speed boat, a fantastic market visit, visit to a pottery business during our cycle trip round the island and finally a fantastic late lunch at a local restaurant with some of the best local food that we had tasted on our Thai trip.
Really, you should book your trip with Jamming for a fun and informative day out with a guide who is keen to build her business and wants to give her customers a great Thai experience.
