What You Can Expect

Bangkok Tuk Tuk Small Group Adventure Tour

Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho, Bangkok

Meet your guide and small group at the Nouvo City Hotel and travel by taxi or minivan to the starting point of your tuk-tuk tour of Bangkok. Board a three-wheeled  auto rickshaw at Phra Arthit Road and head down the back streets of the bustling city toward the Amulet Market, your first stop.

Listen as your guide explains the significance of Buddhist amulets, charms and traditional medicines in Thai culture, before continuing on to Wat Pho, Bangkok’s oldest temple. Get a good look at the Reclining Buddha before traveling onward to Phahurat Market in the heart of Bangkok's little India.

Here, pore over stalls teeming with Indian textiles and ornaments along with snacks, which your guide can help you purchase (own expense). Your tuk-tuk driver delivers you to the Klong Thom quarter, site of Woeng Nakorn Kasem — aka Thieves Market — which specializes in Thai and Chinese antiques.

You’re taken to Phra Sumera Fortress and the flower market at Dheves before you find yourself at Wat Saket, which dates back to the Ayutthaya era. If you wish, climb the 318 steps to the top of the Golden Mount for panoramic views of historical Bangkok.

Your tour concludes at the original departure point, where you guide can assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel.

Great way to see the authentic side of Bangkok. Visited a few markets, temples, had opportunities to try street food. This is a budget friendly tour that I highly recommend.

This tour was loads of fun. Our guide was a delight, very open about Thai culture and Buddist traditions and answered our questions with knowledge and humour. We zoomed around the streets and weaved through traffic in expertly driven tuk tuks. We saw some lovely diverse areas and our guide was flexible enough to accommodate our request to stop for coffee and cake during the tour.

Gof gave us an amazing and interesting day. Had 4 teenagers with us who loved the Tuk Tuks. Went to temples, markets etc and had the lovely Gof guiding us through it all. Ive been to Bangkok 3 times now and I saw things on this tour I have never seen before, so was really interesting for me. Highly recommended.

This was a very well organized tour, they went out of their way to make sure we were happy and enjoying the tour. They met all of our expectations and more and their compassion for providing this service came through in the way they conducted the tour. The explanations on what we were seeing was great, the history lessons were enjoyable, the markets offered a lot on Thai life. I would highly recommend this tour and company.

My daughter adult and myself got ourselves to the hotel where the tour starts, and were met by PUM. She was delightful, very informative, knowledgable, warm and friendly. It turned out we were the only ones there for the tour, so we got virtually, a private tour, which was sensational.

Loved all the stops along the way, flower market was a highlight, and the 'locals' market was great too as we certainly wouldnt have seen this part of Bangkok without PUM'S help.

We tipped her as well, as she did such a fantastic job.
