A great introduction to Bangkok! Such a relaxing way to begin to understand such a busy city.
The tour was very well organised and the wonderful array of exotic fruits for us to try was really impressive, as were the seemingly unlimited delicious Mai Tais. Staff were friendly and ensured our trip was truly memorable. Highly recommended.

This was a great way to spend the afternoon in Bangkok. It was great traveling through the canals and then meeting up with the barge. Loved the afternoon tea provided on this tour. Staff were great and the experience of being on the river was most enjoyable

Nice trip and a great way to see Bangkok. Our guide was very humoristic and informative which made the trip even better. I also liked the drinks and the mixed fruits on the way back. I can highly recommend this cruise for everyone coming to Bangkok.

Nice way how to spend first day in Bangkok after long flight from Europe - relaxing on the river, viewing Bangkok landscape and tasting different kinds of fruits

This tour is a must in Bangkok.
Prompt pick up. Tour is very imformative and sights amazing.
The staff on the rice barge are lovely and the selection of fruits that are offered as afternoon tea are delicious and well presented.
My family really enjoyed this tour. We have used viator in the past and they have proved to be a very reliable and professional company.

Fantastic tour! Confirmed to hotel so no worrying if they would turn up. Picked up promptly and dropped at pier. Passed over to tour guide who was the loveliest man you could ever meet. A real gem! Loved the sights and very informative. Had the tour to ourselves as a group of 4 so felt like VIPs as we passed a few boats rammed with people! Felt guilty as we couldn't eat enough of the fruit buffet to do it justice as there was enough to feed a boat full.
The river was not dirty as some reviews would lead you to believe.
A lovely relaxing afternoon and a break from padding the streets and shops. Worth every baht!

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.

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.

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
