Over an hours drive from Bangkok, but enjoyable. Good guide and driver, good pace of tour, very informative.
This was a very interesting tour and the temples were beautiful. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
Lovely morning spent visiting temples. Seeing the reclining Buddha was certainly the highlight for myself it is much bigger than expected. Only downside was i was back at my hotel by 10.30am would have liked to have spent longer looking around.
This was our first outing in Bangkok and gave us a bit of a feel for the city and it's energy. The Temples were great although we had to have one changed due the the protests that were occurring in Bangkok at the time. Well worth it.
excellent tour great guide very informative and some stunning sights, worth a trip
It was a great afternoon tour. The guide gave us a lot of information about Bangkok and Thailand. The temples were very beautiful.
Good tour! Except we didn't appreciate the gem shop after!
Interesting tour with a excellent guide, and a good insight to Buddhism.
The tour guide is very friendly, informative and lovely to chat with. Had a wonderful time.
The tour was quite good and i would have rated it a 4 but was very annoyed we were twien to a gem factory at the end of the tour, we were tld we didnt have to go in but then had to wait 40 minutes utside the factory t get another bus back to our hotel. I have used Viator sll over the world and have never had this problem before, I wasnt impressed.
The temples were nice but two was enough. The guide didn't give time look at the items that were for sale and I later understood why. Instead of being taken back to our hotel, we were taken to a jewel museum/gallery, ushered into a room to watch a movie and then the fun began. After the video was over, the salesman came in to take us on a "tour" which included "many great sales". Of course the sales were tracked so our tour guide got her cut. I did not enjoy this at all. I would have preferred to buy things authentic to the temples, not some side hustle.
We definitely liked seeing the temples. The guide certainly knew the traffic patterns but was not particularly informative about Buddhism or the temple art that we were seeing--more information would have enhanced our experience
Interesting tour of three temples, which lasted less than 2 hours. Although not described in Viator literature, the tour ends with a visit to a gem store, the same one as the Grand Palace tour. I was not interested in purchasing gems and would not booked the tour if I knew about gem store.
Beautiful temples and really easy to not have to do it alone, but the guide was quite repetitive and we ended in a gem store...not what we wanted.
A bit rushed and maybe something to break up seeing only buddhas
Again, a well informed guide. Enjoyed seeing Reclining Buddha once more. Again being dropped off at the "Gem Scam" marred the day and involved us in horrendous traffic enroute back to hotel, which could have been avoided if had delivered us back directly to hotel.
