Trek to meeting point was a nightmare as taxi driver had no clue. On arrival the heavens opened and by the time I got out of the taxi I was ankle deep in water. However Our guide Dong was simply amazing, once the rain calmed down we stasrted our tour. Loved the street food and local resturant. China town and flower market were buzzing. Definately great tour in my opinion

It's a good tour to get around to areas that aren't necessarily touristy places. Having a local guide to show you the way was great - and she introduced me to new street foods I was unaware of. Alot of walking [not recommended for elderly or people that can't walk / stand for about 5 hours]

We had the same guide as the tuk tuk tour, with only three of us this time. Again the English language barrier was a bit of a problem.
This too was a very interesting tour, and when the rain hit in a big way, our guide raced off to the local 7/11 to buy my wife and I plastic raincoats. She refused to let us pay her for them.
Again, a temple or two, one being very impressive with its massive grounds. We walked through some historic market areas, and at nightfall through the flower market. It is just massive, makes the Amsterdam flower market look like a miniature. It is in the form mainly of a street market but goes for many blocks.
We then finished up having a Chinese dinner with our guide. Along with the tuk tuk tour it gave us a very good view of older Bangkok and was well worthwhile.

This tour was well run and very informative.We saw a lot of things tourists would not see on their own. Even though the weather was against us the guide bought ponchos and we had a great time. Recommended.

If going on a Tuk Tuk tour this tour is wasted. A lot of walking involved. Dinner was good where we got to know the "local" cuisine. Tour guide VERY professional and knowledgeable.

Not perfectly organized:
1. Started late.
2.The meeting point was neither close to the tour area nor to our hotels ( for the both participants of the tour) and we ended up crossing the traffic of China Town a few times because of that reason.The tour itself was a little boring. We were walking through similar crowded streets in Chinatown. The problem that its hard to find general overview tour in Bangkok city.
The tour was with local nice lady who wanted to tell us a lot about her city. We received valuable new information about Bangkok and its population.
