For those who prefer a smaller group tour, this tour is a good option! There were about 8 of us and our tour guide was great! He gave us so much information about each temple we visited. The reclining Buddha at Wat Pho is definitely a sight to see!

This trip was a total disaster! The guide said that it will be a half day trip-well, we started at 8:30am and were done by 10:30h. The guide spoke very poor English; it was difficult to understand him; he rushed us through all the temples, saying "go, take picture, go". He didn't explain anything. When we visited the first temple with the Golden Buddha, he left the car without telling us what to do. We thought he went to pick up the tickets; 20 mins later, he came and asked us if we had entered the building...this is totally unacceptable.
I was so unsatisfied with the tour, that the next day, I went on my own to Wat Pho, where the Reclining Buddha is, bought myslef a ticket and hired a guide.

Joe was extremely knowledgeable about the Grand Palace and shared many insights that we hadn't gotten in previous tours. Also, having been a monk at Wat Pho for 5 years, he was intimately familiar with the temple complex and its workings. Fabulous and would highly recommend his tour!

Man, this is one Big Buddha !! You can see hundreds of Buddhas all around Bangkok, but this one is one of the most visited, because of its sheer size.

I have never seen anything so big and gold as the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho. Definitely a must see, a gorgeous work of art.

We found this was a great tour. We felt there was enough time spent at the Grand Palace and Wat Pho to have a good look around and it was also interesting to see how some live along the river. Being on the water was also a nice break from the heat slightly!. We also had an absolutely fantastic guide Joe who made it a great day. He was so friendly and informative. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour that day and Joe gladly answered all of our questions. We would definitely go on another tour like this.
