Had a great 6 hour tour with Tammy - packed in a huge amount with a lot of very useful background information and Tammy looked after us very well. Thanks!

If you are only in Bangkok for a short period of time (say, 1 or 2 days) and are interested in still seeing some of the best sites in the Old City district near the river - this 6 hour tour is perfect! Our guide, Ms. Amy, was so courteous, friendly and helpful. The tour would normally have been for 8 people, but only 4 were able to make the tour because Pope Francis was in town and this restricted access to pick up the other 4 expected participants. This meant we had a very small and personal tour, and also, as we moved along faster than expected due to the small group size, she also took us to view a 30 minute traditional Thai Khon performance at the tail end of our tour - fabulous! The lunch was also wonderful. Please note that the tour is done at a brisk pace and you may not be able to linger as long as you might on your own - but it certainly covers all the key highlights as described.

and the tour was well paced and informative. Great introduction to Bangkok - do not miss it! Nui provided us with water throughout the entire tour, and he's a great narrator!

This tour was hands down such an excellent, awesome, and wonderful tour. Our tour guide Mr. P Nui is such a rock star. Our tour consisted of going to see the Golden Buddha, Reclining Buddha, the Emerald Buddha, riding a city bus, walking through China Town, and the flower market. Mr. P Nui was extremely knowledgeable. He provided us with the great history of Thailand as well as Bangkok. Mr. P Nui was a very attentive, funny, knowledgeable, patient, and exceptional tour guide. This tour consist of lots of walking Mr. P Nui made sure that we had cold water to stay hydrated which was an added bonus. I highly recommend this tour, specifically with Mr. P Nui.

We were picked up promptly at our hotel and continued on an amazing day. Asking our permission we left the van and toured by public bus, public boat, tuk tuk, and back to our van. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the temples and palace. He provided a walk through the flower market, a stop for refreshments, and an excellent lunch stop. I absolutely recommend a private tour over a large group event.

My husband and I are very happy we purchased this tour. It allowed us to visit the most popular template and the palace. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. He made us participate in seven ceremonies during the tour. We love the sights and the interactions. We recommend it.

Mr. Nui was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and explained many of the Thai traditions. He took us on a local bus through China Town, then walked us through the flower market to a boat for our trip to the palace. He supplied us with water throughout the tour and we would highly recommend this tour and him. Thank you Mr. Nui. Tim and Debbie

Really enjoyed the best of Bangkok in 6 hours thanks mainly to our guide Mr Nui. He is energetic, comedic, and really knows his local history. He would suggest the best photo spots and patiently takes pictures

Our guide Nui was fantastic! He gave us tons of information, explaining everything and answering all questions. He never rushed us and even added a few experiences and places on the tour that wasn’t scheduled. Very friendly and informative, would highly recommend this tour, especially if you can request Nui.

Mr.Nui was a superb guide - very knowledgeable, entertaining and always offering to take photos of us. He also took us for a ride on a local bus and an express boat on the Chao Phraya River for the "local experience" which we really enjoyed and appreciated. Lunch was traditional Thai food which we enjoyed.

We had a wonderful day with Mr Nui who shared the passion and knowledge of his beautiful town with us to make a memorable day. Thank you so much 😊

Our tour guide Tammy spoke great English and was super friendly. She provided tons of history as we entered each temple and she explained traditions. There was just 1 other couple so the small group was perfect. Lunch was delicious in Chinatown. Jan. 1 was a religious holiday. EVERYONE was visiting the Grand Palace. But she made it exciting and the cooler weather made it more comfortable. Our driver was pleasant too.

What an amazing introduction to Bangkok! Our guide, PNui, was so helpful and knowledgeable! He managed to deliver the astonishing history of this town and give us an insight of the Thai culture in such a way that we instantly connected with the city and the Thai culture in general. Would definitely recommend this tour and if you can request THIS PARTICULAR TOUR GUIDE DO SO! You will not regret it!

I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see all of the main temples and the Grand Palace. Our Tour Guide, Amy, really made this trip the best that we did in Bangkok. She was waiting for us in our hotel lobby on time, with a welcoming smile. Amy was so knowledgeable about everywhere that we visited and provided all of the background information about each of the places that we went to. She took us to a fabulous, traditional restaurant for lunch, and this turned out to be the best Thai food that we experienced when in Bangkok.Throughout our tour, Amy was continually concerned about our welfare, providing us with bottled water on a regular basis, which was great as it was so hot. All of the temples get very busy, but our Guide ensured that we always had the best spot to view the temple that we were visiting and took lots of great pictures of us on her own phone, which she then emailed to us, after our tour. How incredible is that! We never would have got so many excellent photos and wonderful memories to look back on without Amy's help! She turned out to be our best Guide!Definitely give this Tour a go, as I am sure you'll not be dissapointed.

Nui our guide was amazing. We were picked up from our hotel on time. The van was air conditioned and Nui started telling us the plan for the day. He took us to great places, took photo's for us etc. Nui stopped often so we could cool off in the shade and kept on supplying us with cold drinks and moist cold towels. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bangkok. Nui you are a great guide and we learnt a lot from you. Many thanks for giving us a great day. When next in Bangkok we will definitely book another trip with Nui. Thanks

We very much enjoyed our city tour with our guide Ms. Pim. She’s very knowledgeable and friendly, accommodating and thoughtful. It’s hard to please a group of 6, aged 7-70! We ended up being the only ones that day and Ms. Pim made sure that each of us has a good time. Lunch was delicious too!

We had such a nice time. There were only four prople on the day we booked and it felt like a private tour. There was ample time to get from place to another as it was the weekend. Never once we felt rushed. The temples were amazing and the tour gave us enough time at each place to have a look and enjoy. The lunch was at a smaller restaurant but it was ok. This is a perfect tour to see the three main temples and royal palace complex.

We were met by Nui at our hotel on time. We only had 3 in our group for our tour. We were in a comfortable air conditioned van. Our visits were not rushed. Nui had a lot of information about the history of Bangkok and Thailand which we wouldn't have heard in a large group tour. We visited the golden Buddha then the Royal Palace complex,and actually jumped on a public bus for a different experience, stopped for a coffee by the river. We then had a downpour so we waited there until it was over. We then stopped for lunch and we could each choose what we wanted. After lunch we visited the reclining Buddha and surrounding complex. It was a great day, good value for money and Nui was always in good spirits and never rushed us. It is our best memory of Bangkok.

This tour was an amazing experience and a 'must do'. Our guide, Nan, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We learned a lot about Thai history. Nan even bought us some jack fruit to try. Such a nice gesture. The Grand Palace and the temples we visited were beautiful. We also enjoyed our buffet lunch. There's a lot of walking so be prepared. Overall, this tour was well worth it and highly recommended.
