The tour was just me and my grandfather so it was incredibly private! A little confusing with the hotel pick-up since we weren't staying at a hotel listed, so we walked to the closest one. The driver was a bit confused, however, the staff at this hotel was incredibly helpful and gave directions. The tour was wonderful! Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. The wats were absolutely stunning and this really was the highlight of our Bangkok tour!

Great tour. Tour guide was very friendly. Temples are gorgeous. Best way to see several temples in one day. They even dropped us off at Grand Palace after tour to explore it on our own. Don and #39;t bother visiting temples on your own. Getting around on the bus and having tickets prepaid made life easy.
