What a riot we had with Jazz our tour guide. Jazz is a foodie. He totally loves Thai food and was full of enthusiam throughout our tour. Time just flew by as we were having so much fun. He took us to a 5 very different food experiences and challenged our tastebuds with yummy and very different foods. There is no way were would have found these food gems among the vastness of food venues. The highlight for us was the hotpot meal where we got to cook our own food right at our table. Fun! The TukTuk drivers were really good as we were whizzed through the main and back streets seeing the sites, lights and sounds of Bangkok. Bring your appetite !!! Jazz makes sure you are totally stuffed by the time you leave. Jazz was super organized, got us through all the venues and we never felt rushed at all. Kudos to him and his TukTuk team. We had a blast and we highly recommend you either start or finish your visit to Bangkok.

We had an amazing experience with our guide who took care of us from 9am until 5pm and every step of the way. Not only did we learn so much about the history of Thailand and Bangkok, she showed us the beauty of the temples and the history behind them. We also enjoyed learning so much about the monarchy and how it is such an important aspect of Thai culture. The boat ride on the river was perfect and the restaurant for lunch was delicious. 5 star experience all around

Excellent day tour of various points around Bangkok! Our tour guide was both knowledge, informative, and so polite. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our experience. The boat ride in particular was a treat. Seeing the different temples was enriching and spiritual. Highly recommend for your tour of Bangkok. Company was also extremely nice enough to re-accomodate our scheduled follow-up tour on short notice.

Having just arrived in Bangkok on our first trip to Thailand, we were hopeing for a tour to get us situated. Our guide, Dusit, picked us up and lead us on a remarkable day that truly fit the need. We visited Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the Grand Palace, and Wat Traimit. We also got a walking tour through China town markets and the flower market. After lunch we took a very enjoyable long boat cruise of the Chao Phraya River. Dusit was knowlegable, and enthusiastic. He seemed to really enjoy intriducing us to a city and country he loves. Would defintely recommend this tour to anyone.

Our private guide Miss Chutima Nawsoon, and our driver provided us with a fabulous day. Chutima took care of every detail for us and we could have not been happier with our tour. The tour consisted of only myself, my brother, our guide and driver -- perfect! Thanks so much again!!!!

Because of my mother's physical limitations, I booked a private tour of Bangkok. Siri, our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide and the driver picked us from our hotel accommodations - the Legacy Suites in downtown Bangkok at 0800. We were driven in a spacious comfortable air conditioned mini-SUV. Our first stop was the Temple of the Golden Buddha, which boasts the heaviest golden Buddha in the world weighing at 5.5 tons. Our pictures glistened from the gold. Siri, then walked us through the fragrant Bangkok flower market - Pak Klong Talat. It was an outdoor market ordained whith vibrant colors of various flowers, orchids and floral offerings to the Buddha and Hindu dieties. Then we proceeded to the temple housing the Reclining Buddha, which spans an impressive 46 meters long - one of the longest golden structures I have ever seen. As we walked through Wat Phra Kaew complex, Siri narrated the story of the colorful pyramid like structures composed of mosaic tiles and porcelain china ranging from teal to magenta and gold. The experience imparts a sense of great spirituality and diversity in the land and its people. The temple structures in the compound illustrated legends with Buddhist and Hindu origins. Siri took us to the Riverside Bangkok restaurant as part of the tour package. The Thai Buffet style restaurant was located in a boat at the pier. It was a satiating experience...Thai food everywhere you go in Thailand is always flavorful! After lunch, we boarded a long boat to tour the canals of Bangkok which included Bang Kachao and the Chao Praya River. It was an interesting experience. The poverty and unsanitary conditions, in which communities lived in around the Canals was humbling and poignant to see. There was a temple along the river in which we fed fish - that area is a sanctuary for fish because it is prohibited to catch fish in front of the temple. Our tour concluded with Siri helping us to arrange our attendance of the Siam Narimit cultural show. It was a spectacular performance showcasing the rich and colorful history and culture of Thailand. It had the most sophisticated stages I have seen - as it contained a flowing body of water that resembled a river and quick changing stages. Siri was so friendly and professional and she and the driver made us feel welcomed and immersed in the history and culture if Thailand! I'm ever so grateful for such a travel experience that was worth my money.

This tour was nothing short of amazing!! Our tour guide Siri was the best! She was so friendly and kind. Siri and her driver were both very friendly. She took us to different temples, down a water canal on a boat, and we had a nice lunch. Siri was very knowledgable and also took amazing photos of my husband and I to remember the day! I highly recommend this tour and Siri as your guide!!

We obviously haven’t been on all the tours in Bangkok but I’d say that this was phenomenally well organised and Miss Chutima Nawsoon was a funny and engaging hostess. Who ensured that we all had a great time. The three of us were picked up from our hotel by Miss Nawsoon and the driver for the day at the right time with no issues. Over the course of the day we visited China town, the gold, jade and reclining Bhuddh’s as well as the Palace and the flower market. We were also taken on an exciting and informative boat ride around the canals of Bangkok where we saw Monitor lizards, about 8 feet long things, and feed the catfish outside one of the many temples. We also stopped several other temples throughout the day. We had a great buffet lunch on a boat on the river. Much needed as you burn a lot of energy! Throughout it all Miss Nawsoon kept up a funny and informative discourse on Thailand, Bangkok and what it means to be Buddhist. I have to say that we finished the day exhausted but happy and feel that we could not have chosen a better tour. Thank you Miss Nawsoon you made our trip.

Our guide [Giamo] was delightful and very knowledgeable. She shared her culture and history with both reverence and glee. She took time to answer every question posed. She explained the subtleties regarding the Thai people and their place in the world. She was wonderful in getting us in and out of the monuments as well as showing us the local fare. She walked with us, laughed with us and broke bread with us. Always cheerful and personable. We made a friend! This was money well spent and time spent even better. Transportation was great and the driver was very pleasant as well.

Aey, our tour guide, was extremely sweet and pleasant throughout the tour. She took us to all the beautiful temples in Bangkok and explained in detail the history behind the temples and different buddha figures and positions. We were able to book another tour with her company and the owner, Mr. Aboulghasem, was kind enough to offer us a discount since we previously booked a trip with hs company. The transportation was immaculate: from the vehicle and "tuk tuk", everythng was first class! Highly recommend!

Giamo, our guide, was excellent. She was courteous and fun. Her spoken English was okay. I would recommend her to anyone. It was all about seeing the sites and having an enjoyable time at same time. We loved every minute of it. She was even receptive to calls and interpreting with our vendors/ cab drivers, days after the tour.

It is a compact, well designed tour. It covers 3 mesmerizing temples of Bangkok city and a visit to multiple complexes of grand "Grand Palace" which also includes Emerald Buddha Temple inside the palace. A boat ride in the canals to experience the floating market and livelihood of local people is an additional feature of the tour.We are lucky to have a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, Ms. Rose. She shared information with great detail. The lunch is a part of the package and we had an opportunity to explore the great cuisines of Thai delicacy.It started from our hotel and ended at the same place as it was a Private Tour. We enjoyed every bit of it and learnt so many new aspects of Thailand. A must for every tourist!

Our private full day tour of Bangkok was outstanding! Our guide Rose was fantastic. She was highly knowledgeable, friendly and helpful throughout the day. Rose was always happy to take photos for us and to answer any questions we had throughout the day. She was always getting us cold bottles of water which helps in the humid weather. We also had a fantastic driver who was safe, reliable and a bit of fun as well. The local restaurant Rose took us to for lunch was excellent. We loved seeing the Royal Palace, going on the boat ride and all the various temples! We also ended up back at our hotel a bit earlier which is also fantastic as we can then cool off in the pool! Highly recommended!

We were picked up at the hotel by our guide for today. We found her to be very approacable and made us feel at ease straight away. we continued to the various sites on the tour and she never missed anything and her knoledge was excellent. The royal palace was the highlight for me but everything else was a close second.

Our tour guide Aey came ahead of time to pick us therefore we started our tour early and she explained what we are going to see before we reached the place so as to enable us to have a better idea. She even arranged a good buffet lunch. Thank you Aey

Fantastic one day tour of Bangkok. Booked in UK from so many on offer so a bit daunting but Couldnt have been more delighted ,our guide and driver collected us from our hotel , on time and in a very comfortable air conditioned mimi/bus. We visited, all the major sites, Golden and reclining Buddhas, The Grand Palace, China town, Flower market, and took A Tuk Tuk and long tail boat ride through the canals. Our guide was very informative and adapted the tour as we requested, took us for a fabulous lunch and made this a great day out. If your unsure what to do in Bangkok and have limited time I can not recommend this tour highly enough. Phil Hayden UK.

The tour guide was great, speaks very understandable English. They went out of their way to arrange pick up from the hotel and the drop-off at the airport. They even picked up the luggage later with a bigger car.
