The two boat trips were fun but the best part was the fruit and snack buffet on the rice barge--the first part of the cruise was on a smaller boat. Because of the traffic problems caused by the protests I was picked up early, so I had some time to wait until the cruise started.

This was a very enjoyable tour we were met at our hotel and escorted right to where the tour stated and at the end taken the shortest way home. Instead of being stuck in traffic. The tour guide on the trip was very informative and pleasant. I would recommend for all ages.

Brilliant trip, amazing sights saw how the river people were living. Food lovely. Sadly lost our photos so if you have been recently perhaps i could have a copy of some photos.

This cruise could be a highlight of your trip! You're picked up at the hotel at 2 p.m., and returned to the hotel by 5 p.m. First you ride in a motorized boat along the river, then transfer to the rice barge and ride along a canal. After passing in front of the Royal Barge Museum (where you're able to peek inside), you're given the opportunity to buy a loaf of bread to feed the fish, or you can simply take pictures of the fish being fed. After that, you're given a lavish buffet of sweets and ripe tropical fruits, along with a fruit punch drink with (or without) alcohol.

The commentary en route is interesting, and the whole experience is memorable.

We did enjoy this two-hour afternoon cruise. The journey was well organized and the food and drink served on the barge were very good. We highly recommend this tour.

If there is a "must do" in Bangkok, the Rice Barge Cruise is it. The first hour on a narrow boat (not a long tail boat) is OK but after transferring to the Rice Boat the trip suddenly becomes wonderful. I have no hesitation in recommending it and will certainly do it again when we are next in Bangkok. As an aside, the snacks on the Rice Boat are unbelieveable - every kind of fresh fruit that you can think of and the sticky rice is excellent
