This was a bit of a surprise really. I chose the trip as we were due to arrive early in Bangkok, we have been there several times and I wanted a relaxing afternoon that was an alternative to trawling around the MBK Centre shopping. It turned out to be just that and more. We had a lovely couple of hours going up and down the river, first in a long-tail boat and then on a rice barge. The first leg was informative and interesting. The second offered photo opportunities and a nice cold buffet. I would recommend this trip if you want a quiet and relaxing introduction to Bangkok.
Good afternoon trip, much enjoyed. Hotel pickup was very punctual.
This was a very pleasant and informative afternoon. The first half was on a small boat, enabling exploration of the smaller canals and the Rice Barge was in fact, only for the latter half and the afternoon tea - a brilliant tropical fruit platter - a great way to try some of those things you see in the market... One strange touch, was including complimentary shots of whisky brought around on a tray! but if we wanted a beer we had to buy it........
Interesting cruise with good commentary and a lovely refreshing snack and drinks on the return journey.
Our guide was difficult to hear over the loudspeaker on the rice barge. I enjoyed the tour; there weren't that many people either. I enjoyed going through the canals in Bangkok. When we switched boats, we had a massive fruit platter and drinks.
This was a good tour to see the contrasts within Bangkok.
This is a very good value for money. Excellently organized.
The cruise was well worth it! More history of what was seen is needed and the English speaking guide was a bit hard to understand. The fruit was wonderful.
This was a very relaxing trip. The commentary was good, and the fruit was lovely and well presented.
Friendly, knowledgeable guide. Arrived on time to pick us up.
Would have liked to explore the canals further. The guide was interesting and gave us an insight into the current protests. The ad said we would be travelling on a longtail boat - not the case - and there would be very few people on the tour - again not the case.
