The tour company was very accommodating. The tour guide was very helpful and gave us enough time to explore the palace facilities on our own while giving us enough details of the complex, culture and history

This was a great tour to see the Grand Palace Complex. We had time with the tour guide to learn about the palace, but also had time to explore on our own.

The Grand Palace was my first stop in Bangkok, like most people. It is the great introduction to the city and to the culture of Thailand. This tour was an easy, convenient, and fun way to begin my time in the city. Transportation around the city is chaotic, and this tour allowed me to let someone else do the transport and just enjoy. The pick-up at my hotel made it especially easy. Our tour guide was professional, kind, and fun. I highly recommend this tour.

Beautiful buildings, worth the visit. Guide was very informative and we were only a small group 5. Pick up from the hotel. The tour ended at the largest gem factory in the world, which was 'not part of the tour' and we were not obliged to buy anything. The gem factory organised drop off back to our hotel or at any other place that we wanted to visit. I was surprised that this tour identical in every detail was more expensive booking through Viator than if I had booked it through the hotel where I was staying.

Beautiful temples and great tour. Loved learning the history of Thailand. Great tour that only takes up a few hours in the day. I didn't find enough time to take pictures but the guide was patient! Remember to cover shoulders, legs and feet for this tour.
