Excellent historical/cultural trip highlighting the way things used to be. Our guide was excellent. We were a tour of 5 our family so it ended up being a private tour.
Highly recommended tour - value was excellent.

Very well organised and adapted well to the terriable weather. Unfortunatly due to the weather we could not vist the Wat Arun, this was no big deal as we were soaked and just wanted to get back to the hotel. Other then that we were picked up on time and dropped back to the hotel.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. There were only three persons on the tour and the guide was both knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. This was our first introduction to Bangkok and along with the sights visited as described we had a tour of the city area as well. Cruising the canals was interesting as this is the side of a city you'd never normally experience. We would highly recommend this tour.

These were the must see sights of Bangkok. I enjoyed arriving via a wooden long boat that roger Moore had been in. Our guide was excellent and was very informative.

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.

Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and passionate about his country and its history. Tour was terrific and as we were the only passengers, we had time to go past the uni and other govt buildings. Would recommend the tour, the long boat was a great way to see Bangkok. Palace beautiful.

The tour company was really punctual in picking us up at the hotel and this was probably my favorite tour in Bangkok, the canals tour was great and the two temples we visited were spectacular. I will totally recommend it to a first time visitor of Bangkok. The only down side was that at times it was difficult to understand the tour guideā€™s English given his thick accent, never the less great tour.

We were the only people on this tour so had a really personal experience. The Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable but left us alone to wander around the attractions at our own pace so we never felt rushed. A very good value tour!!

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.

Our tour guide was great. She greeted us with a smile and we actually were the only group on our tour. The boat ride was great and it was wonderful to learn about the history of the royal family and Bangkok history. Highly recommended.

This was a fantastic experience for us. Our tour guide was informative and extremely helpful. She made changes to the tour schedule necessitated by the Royal Funeral arrangements at the Grand Palace, and ensured we got full value. She was personable and helpful, and always cheerful and eager to show us the best available aspects of the tour itinerary.
