My friend and I purchased this tour and it was amazing. It was educational as well as scenic. We were able to experience areas on the canal where locals live and work. What an enlightening journey. My only wish was that we had a more time to spend at Wat Arun so that we could explore the entire premises. Nonetheless, our personal tour guide/ photographer voluntarily captured as many memories as requested. I am so glad to have booked this cruise.

This was the highlight of my Bangkok experience. I was the only person on the tour that day (appreciated that we still carried on instead of it being cancelled!). My guide, Jackie, had a great bubbly personality, and he was very watchful of me, making sure I was staying with him. We wound through back streets and along canals, seeing everyday people going about their lives. I had just the right amount of time at Wat Arun, and we stopped at another, less-touristy temple to see Bangkok's largest seated Buddha, too. Loved this experience!

Wat Arun is my favorite temple in Bangkok. Wonderful artistic detail covers the temple and climbing up and down the steep steps is thrilling. Definitely worth crossing the river to see.

I'm so glad that we booked this tour. Not only did it start early so we were able to enjoy Wat Arun with no other visitors, but everything was streamlined at the Grand Palace, which I was thankful for. The small tour of the waterways of old Bangkok was really enjoyable.

The tour operator in Asia sent their best tour guide! I went on both Bangkok tours with him. The tour in general was very complete. And for the ladies, there's a kiosk outside the Temple of Dawn Wat Arun where they dress you up in traditional Thai attire, so you can take your picture a few poses actually in front of the temple dressed accordingly! Lovely souvenir for 10 USD! The water canals is a great experience, because you get to see The rich, middle and high class Thailand houses.
