Private Tour: Floating Markets and Rose Garden Cultural Center Day Trip from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Worst private tour of our lot, we asked to modify the tour (more time at one place , less time at another) and rthe equest was not honored by rude, deceiptful and uninformative tour guide( at first he said no problem then didn't do as asked then got mad and rude when we called him on it). Why bother paying extra for the private tour then? Floating markets are sort of a must but can get crowded, cultural center was just OK, not a must see but nice if you have the extra time.

Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Very little time actually spent at the ruins maybe 20 minutes off the bus, the other stop was a temple and the old 150' reclining buddha also each 20-25 minutes. We spent more time waiting (50') for all the other 20+ passengers to arrive at the departing big bus tour. The boat ride back and buffet wasn't bad but took nearly 3 hours. The tour doesn't make enough efforts to deliver tour time at the actual site. Its a huyry up and wait style drive by.

Khao Yai National Park and Elephant Ride Day Trip from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Actually a great tour with lots of extras; ox ride, genuine local market, great local lunch and well organized elephant ride (not at all inside the park as I expected). Here we had the nicest tour guide of our week of viator tours. Sadly there was little to no efforts made at wildlife viewing in the park and actual total time spent off the bus in the actual park was about 40 minutes. We were sorely dissapointed as our small bus skated on past several "wildlife viewing areas". Little to no talk of wild elephants or hornbills (birds were purportedly most active this month-mating season). You will se very little of the park on this tour BUT its still a pretty fun, worthwhile tour nonetheless!

Private Tour: Bangkok Temples including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Regretably our tour guide had a very loud headache inducing voice. She was polite and nice and I can't fault her too much, but couldn't/wouldn't take another private tour with her. She seemed out of touch with our needs. Maybe she was used to yelling at large tour groups. Kind of ruined it for us that whole day. The temples seemed great otherwise.

Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Mediocre. Nice way to see the river, temples at night. Food was OK, Entertainment started nice with traditional Thai dancer but quickly got fairly cheesy by the end with band covering Abba, Achy Brachy Heart, Village people etc.. Really? I would think tourist would want more on the cultural side for this type of tour.

Private Tour: Bangkok's Grand Palace Complex and Wat Phra Kaew

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. Unfortunately he barely mentioned any of the mythology and creatures embellishing the decor that we were most interested in. He did give other decent narratives and summarized Buddhism well. He wasn't especially good with a camera either which meant we don't really have any good couples shots from there that would have been nice to have (but he did try). The Grand Palace will most likely be a highlight in your tours of Bangkok.

Private Arrival Transfer: Bangkok Airport to Hotel

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Actaully our ride on time but when we had problems confirming our flight, the office transport personell (he phoned in to the office)told us that they had confirmed it and all was well.....when in actuality the flight was delayed 6 hours, meaning we would miss the connecting, flight meaning we should have stayed at the hotel and rebooked next day. Anyway it is our responsibility to confirm flights but we were unable to make contact and relied on the info provided by the transport personell. They either lied or were misinformed, caused us a great inconvenience.
