What You Can Expect

Bangkok Tuk Tuk Small Group Adventure Tour

Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho, Bangkok

Make your way to the lobby of the Nouvo City Hotel to meet your guide. You'll travel together by taxi or minivan to the starting point of this Bangkok Tuk Tuk tour.

Board your motorized rickshaw commonly known as Tuk Tuk with your local guide from Phra Arthit Road. Travel past Thammasart University into Phra Chan Road to the Amulet Market, where various religious amulets, charms and traditional medicines are available. Your informative guide will explain the significance that these items play in the Thai culture.

Continue by Tuk Tuk to your next stop, Wat Pho temple, the oldest temple in Bangkok. Explore the Wat Pho temple complex with your guide before climbing back onboard your Tuk Tuk.

Travel by Tuk Tuk to Phahurat Market, the Phahurat Market is in the heart of Bangkok's little India where all kinds of fabrics, cloths, ornaments and accessories are sold along with stalls selling delicious Indian snacks. You'll continue to Woeng Nakorn Kasem in the Klong Thom quarter, also known as the "thieves market". It is a second hand market for Thai and Chinese antiques where you'll will find an array of goods for sale from porcelain to furniture.

Your next stop is Wat Saket. Wat Saket sits at the bottom of an artificial hill, often referred to as the Golden Mount and dates back to the Ayuthaya era, prior to Bangkok becoming the capital of the Siamese kingdom. The temple was used for cremation ceremonies.

Your tour concludes at Wat Saket but not before you climb up the 318 steps to the top of the Golden Mount where you'll have amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding old Rattankosin Island.

Your guide can assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel if needed.

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.

This was an excellent start to my holiday and experience I will remember for a long time. My guide Pam was really friendly and spoke not only about the sites we were visiting but also talked about life in Thailand. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in Bangkok on their first visit. It was a fabulous introduction to the city and To Thailands history, culture and people.
