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 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.
