If you plan to explore Bangkok and its surroundings, I recommend hiring a guide. However, be careful, some guides may take you to places where you'll be pressured to spend money for their commissions.
For trustworthy and reliable guides, consider contacting IngTaxi or Montree 911. They won't deceive you or coerce you into unnecessary spending. Reach out to them in advance, and they can suggest and plan the tour(s) based on your preferences.
