It was a great tour and our guide was very informative. He was vey patience and gave lots of time to talk photos. He even set us up on a personal tour of the floating market after the morning tour. It was a great day in Bangkok. I highly recommend the tour.
This was an amazing experience. Must say the tour guide did make it, he spoke well English and made us all laugh. I would recommend this tour to all visitors to Bangkok. And using Viator work extremely well. Good communication and well organised.
The tour was about 2 hours (definitely less if travelling time was included of course). The last 1 hour was actually reserved for taking the guests to the jewelry shop. You are paying more than what it worth.
The Grand Palace is a must visit when in Bangkok. Unfortunately, I was picked up in an old Mercedes Benz sedan by a tour guide with a very strong accent, and I was only able to understand about half of what he was saying in English. We spent about an hour at the Grand Palace and I was then taken to a gem factory. I was not interested in visiting the gem factory, but my guide took me there anyway. I think he only did it to receive some type of commission. I recommend visiting the Grand Palace, but suggest using a different tour service.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. We highly recommend this canal tour. Riding in the long tail boat was a highlight of our trip to Bangkok.
Beautiful buildings. Well maintained. Our guide was very informative. One of the best places I visited in Southesast Asia.
highly recommended to visit grand place because of incredible hand made. It's really good to see when you go there and also excellent guider who will translate all history in English.
Seeing the Grand Palace is a must for all Bangkok tourists. The guide, June, was professional, funny, knowledgeable, and spoke English very well. The only issue I had was that after I booked the tour I received an email from Viator stating that the tour was cancelled, after calling the company I just had to make arrangements to be picked up at a closer hotel.
Great trip and service. As with our other trip booked through viatour we received a letter the day before letting us know what time we would be picked up, we had an air conditioned mini bus with our party of 5 and 1 other traveller. Our guide was good (if a little barmy!!) she gave us lots of information not only the palace but Bangkok itself, she also tried to get us round to the best bits before the crowds got there. The palace itself is amazing and well worth visiting. The only downside for us was on the way back we were then told we would be going to a jewellery centre, which we were unaware of and not interested in, we then had to walk through this before the centre got a different minibus to take us back to our hotel. Other than that its a fantastic trip.
Good tour. Guide was knowledgeable and polite. I had an afternoon tour so she arranged for me to be dropped off/picked up for next tour at Siam Sq. so I could eat and get some shopping done. She also let me skip the gem store at the end (amen!)
A must see tour, if you do nothing else, you should take this tour while in Bangkok.
We had plenty of time to explore this large complex and appreciate the history of the buildings. The guide was particularly helpful with the history and current politics, giving a clear perspective to the visit, and avoiding the inevitable queues. A must for every visitor to Bangkok.
The palace is a must see for any visitor to Bangkok.
It was great... My tour guide Pan was amazing. Very knowledgable and new the answers to our questions. She went above and beyond when she helped me get back to my hotel! She is an awesome person!
