After meeting your guide and small group at a central location in Bangkok, hop aboard your tuk-tuk, a fun and commonly used open-air vehicle that easily accommodates two passengers. Your tour takes place after the temperature drops, bypassing heavily trafficked routes as you drive to locations most frequented during the daytime. You will hop on and off the tuk tuk as we explore the city with your guide.

Your guide provides an overview of Thailand’s capital and insights into local life as you take in the beauty of Bangkok by night and explore markets, temples and its food. Stop at famous temples such as Wat Pho to admire its golden pagodas lit up at night, and walk through the famous 24-hour flower market, where vivid colors are in full bloom under the fluorescent lights.

At nightfall, Bangkok comes alive with food vendors, and you’ll stop to sample some of the best food in the city before finishing with a delicious dessert in a mystery stop. Your tuk-tuk tour ends near the Flower Market, and there’s still time to check out the tireless city’s nightlife on your own.

This trip is a must! We had 48hrs in Bangkok, and I had booked this for the day/night we arrived. From start to finish our guide Jazz, was amazing, so warm, and welcoming. We had so much fun, it was so well organised. Visiting the markets, trying the food, visiting the flower market, having dinner at the famous Pad Thai restaurant This is a must to experience the authentic parts of Bangkok with a guide in a wonderful Tuk Tuk.

What a great, action packed tour! The guide, Tek, was friendly, knowledgeable and super easy to talk to. Lots of activities on the tour, great selection of different types of snacks, meals and desserts. Lovely little surprise at the end really rounded off the evening perfectly. Was so great to visit the temple at night when it was quiet. Glad the tuk tuk driver dropped me at my hotel at the end of the tour. Would highly recommend this tour, it's well worth it!

I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to have an amazing experience in Bangkok during the night. Night tours are perfect because the weather is nicer and there is no heavy traffic as you see in Bangkok during the day. it’s great option for solo travelers and couples. The Food and the ride experience are the best part of it. Tour guides are well knowledgeable and very friendly. They are prepared even if it’s rain they help you so you don’t get wet.

This was an awesome tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and showed interest in the information he was presenting. The food we tasted was incredible but my favorite stop was the flower market. It was a great group of guides and tuk tuk drivers and I appreciate the time put in this itinerary.

Pauline was a great guide! Very informative and her English was fantastic! She showed us all the best spots and spoiled us taking us to the best Pad Thai restaurant in the city! I’d definitely recommend this tour as a solo traveller or with others.

Dazzling Tuk Tuks and a humorous guide is an irresistible combination. A visit to Thipsamai to taste their famous Phad Thai was the highlight. Another awesome place was the visit to Wat Pho at night. Night Markets, Flower Market were also very interesting. Thai snacks that were offered at these places were also very good. Overall amazing experience!

Nylah was our guide. There were 11 of us on this particular night. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.The tour's pace was just right, and we got to sample a variety of local dishes that the typical tourist might miss. This tour comes highly recommended.

The guide Nath was knowledgeable and funny, he had a lot of information to share. The number of places that we went and the variety of the food was a pleasant surprise. The tuk tuks were fun and they really did keep out of traffic as much as possible. Going to the temples at night was beautiful and uncrowned. I would definitely suggest taking this tour.

I was staying nowhere near the BTS so had to take a tuk tuk to the meet up point. Driver first took me to the wrong spot and then dropped me at a random BTS station. I received a phone call when I was late (I had given myself 1 1/2 hours to get to a spot 26 minutes away) I was lost with no idea how to get to the meetup point. They called me and I was able to hand the phone over in the BTS and get to where I should be. I was taken to the group at the end of the first spot. I was so glad I was able to still do the tour as I really enjoyed it. The flower market is amazing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour but make sure you know how to get around in the BTS as it is very confusing. Also if you have to take a tuk tuk there show them the Google map which is what I should have done!

My husband and I booked this tour last minute and we are so thankful we did! It was one of my favorite things we did in Bangkok. Getting to see the temples at night time was nothing short of magical. The food was amazing!! And getting to have the experience of riding in a Tuk-Tuk in a safe environment was amazing. Our tour guide Jazzy was spectacular. He was so entertaining and we had so much fun!! Book this tour, you won't regret it!!

Viator has never let us down and this was another great event. We were met by Mr P at the appointed MRT station and introduced to about 6 other travellers that formed the group. From there we met with our Tuk Tuk drivers and were given the first of many bottles of water! Being driven around Bangkok in a Tuk Tuk is one of life’s fun experiences and one where we felt very safe and well looked after. We started off by visiting a local night market, understanding why they exist and tasting a sample of the great food on offer. We then went off to the first of several temples. Whilst we couldn’t get into visit the various Buddha’s it was great visiting them in the evening when it was quieter and, marginally, less humid. Half way through the evening we stopped at a fantastic restaurant, huge queues outside but somehow we were taken straight to our tables. My daughter and I had the prawn noodle wrapped in egg, phenomenal! My wife had the vegetarian option as it was the only other choice. We then visited the Palace, could only see the outside but still great, and ended up in the famed flower market which a spectacular riot of colours and smells. There we had our desert of sticky rice and mango, very tasty. Along the way Mr P gave us a very personal insight into Bangkok it’s culture and why Buddhism is so fundamental to their way of life. In summary, this is a great tour if you want to gain a different perspective on the temples and understand the culture of Bangkok and it’s people. Above all Mr P was a wonderful host who could not do enough for us. The Tuk Tuk’s are Great fun way to travel around Bangkok!

Great tour of the city and our guide (Noon) was very knowledgable. It's a great way to see a lot of Bangkok's highlights without fighting big crowds.

A four-hour tour full of action, moving through traffic safely with a fun flair, stopped at local food markets tasting savory treats, clean and appetizing, including a local dessert well worth trying! All the above intermingled with a tour of the Grand Palace Temple and Wat Arun in the evening which was spectacular! Well worth it, make sure you treat yourself to this evening Bangkok Tuk Tuk tour!

A lot of fun! We had no problem finding the start of the tour with the excellent directions. We walked through markets, ate food; and learned about life and culture. We saw the sites at night; walked through and got some great pictures. We ate more food. We learned more about Thailand Our guide was knowledgeable, and friendly! She took care of all our needs. Our driver was safe. If you can do one thing in Bangkok this is it!
