Our guide Pum was waiting for us at the meeting point 15 minutes before pick up time and as we were the only ones in the "small group", we set off on our adventure straight away.
Being our first trip to Bangkok, we thought this would be a great introduction to the old city and the history behind it....and we were right!
Pum was a wonderful guide, speaking very good English and we learnt and saw so much in such a short time (4 hours).
The highlights were definitely the Reclining Buddha, the Golden Mount and the wonderful flower markets.
The morning went so quickly and we were fascinated by the culture and tradition that we experienced during our Tuk Tuk ride.
All in all it was a wonderful experience!!!
The tour was very nice. The guide was very professional and showed us sites in Bangkok that other tours do not go to. We learned a lot about Buddhist religion, what local people believe gives them luck and happiness. We experienced tuk-tuk rides and strolled through different Bangkok's markets. Recommended for everyone who wants to see old Bangkok through eyes of a local.
Enjoyed it. One of our favorite tours. It's great to just get in the Tuk Tuk and bebop around the city.
This is an EXCELLENT, FUN way of getting around and seeing the most important sights. Problem: the tour starts at a venue away from public transport access. Tour guide - EXCELLENT!
I was lucky enough to be the only person on this tour. Had a great time. The tour guide was very sweet and was genuinely excited to talk about Bangkok and its history. The highlight was the visit to the Golden Mount.
Guide outstanding. Really saw alot in one day.
Get to see a lot of the highlights on Bangkok in a short time led by a knowledgable guide
Loved the tuk-tuk experience! Small groups and best way to move from one place to another within the city especially for short distances.
Joe, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made the tour great to be on. We were the only two on the tour. There was heavy rain while visiting the Reclining Buddha and we had to wade through ankle deep water as it is close to the river and prone to flooding. But still we found the whole tour interesting. Joe had lots of knowledge to share. The flower market has a huge assortment of flowers and very cheap.
This is a great tour if you only have limited time and really want to get a feel of the city!
Our guide Pam was very informative and helpful in the heat and showed us around the temple sites and markets with great enthusiasm. Definitely recommended!
This was our last day in Bangkok. We had no idea of the itinerary when we met up with our 2 other tuk-tuk companions - 2 young Scottish girls - and our Guide Joe. This turned out to be a great tour. We went first to the Golden Mountain where we had a 360 steps to reach the temple complete with buddhas and bronze bells and a wonderful view over Bangkok's temples. Next on to the flower market which was a riot of colour and smells and the amulet market where people buy these good luck 'charms'. Our big surprise was to be able to go back to the Wat Po temple complex, probably the most spectacular in Bangkok including the Grand Palace. We had almost forgotten how spectacular this is with the many guilded roofs, turrets, myriads of golden buddhas, intricately carved stupas with flowers, fish and animals, and last but not least the famous golden reclining buddha which takes up a whole temple - amazing as ever. Joe came into his own as a very knowledgeable and enthusiatic guide who having been a monk at the temple for 5 years, provided some unique and interesting insights to the temple complex. The tour finished at the King Garden overlooking the Chao Phraya river which had a remnants of a fort. Loved the tour, but could have done without Joe's gory photos of traditional ways of using birds to dispose of corposes.. !!! A little too graphic for us Westerners, although the Scottish girls semeed to have stronger stomachs !!!
This was novel and fun introduction to Bangkok. There were five of us tourists and our guide in three tuk tuks. Our guide was a very pleasant young lady but I only understood about half of her English. She could not understand most of our questions back to her.
The tour took us through very interesting parts of Bangkok, dropping us off and then picking us up at various spots. We walked through markets in alleys, some major temples and along street markets too.
All in all a very good morning's tour and a good introduction to the more basic Bangkok. Recommended to any first-time visitor to Bangkok.
great trip. My guide was very knowledgeable and took me to more places than listed on the itinerary
