Jo our guide was first rate. Nothing was too much trouble and he was very informative. The palace is well worth a visit, highly recommended.
Guide was at the meeting point early. she turned out to be knowledgeable and friendly and showed us a most interesting tour. At the end of it she called my transport for me and it was waiting for me outside the last gate of the palace and on time. A very satisfying tour.
My friend & I (females) were the only ones on this tour. Joe our guide was very friendly and informative. We felt safe in his company. We totally enjoyed the tour and provided us a great deal of knowledge in a short period of time about Bangkok/Thailand. Joe also took some amazing photos for us. Highly recommended. PS. If you have trouble walking, this tour may not suit you.
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.
We were the only people on this trip due to the start of the demonstrations. Joe our guide gave us a very entertaining tour which was 'much closer to real people in the country'. Highly reccommended for people who have good basic fitness.
Highly recommended! very informative with an exceptional tour guide.

Very nice tour, you got to see it all in half day, although be aware there is alot of walking involved, but very worth doing.
This was a fantastic way to see the highlights of Bangkok. On the day we went, we were our guide's only clients so we were able to see the sights at our pace. The reclining Buddah has got to be one of the best things to see in Bangkok. Only wish we had stayed there longer!
Great time,the guide was early at the meeting point, was very informative and made sure we had a good time. It was all that the description said it would be, and more.
In the palaces and area made of gold, the craftsmanship was absolutely wonderful. Loved every minute.
There were supposed to be three people on my tour, but one was a no-show if the group had been any smaller, the tour would have been private :- Our guide, Bo, did a great job - the only improvement I could suggest would have been some narration during the long boat tour, which, admittedly, would have been difficult without some amplification i.e., due to the motor noise. Bo even covered the taxi back to Khao San Road, which I hadnt been expecting.
This was a great tour however the rules have changed and you now need to make sure that your legs are covered down to your ankles, I had shorts on that covered my knees completely but that wasn't acceptable for the grand palace. Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable as she showed us around but it was very hot so make sure you take lots of water with you!
