This tour was absolutely amazing! I learned SO much from our guide, Chan. He gave us a wealth of information about the Temple, Buddhism and the Grand Palace. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you Chan, you are a one-in-a-million tour guide!
A very educational and amazing tour! Startled by the architectural design specially the glittering glass gem stones and gold trimmings,
This was a good day and the tour guide was very good I would reccomend.
Tour guide was very informative. Really good tour, timings were just right. Really enjoyed the tour.
It was almost a private tour - 4people and the guide. We were among the very first to enter the grand palace so it was perfect to take the time to look into details and take nice and tourist-free pictures. We went through every building open to the public and we also got to see the guards.
The guide was very nice and knowledgeable and quick to make a joke.
Very good tour, informative guide, hotel pick up was at the time stated, Palace is well worth the visit, could have done without the jewelery shop stop.
This was a very interesting tour. Saw temples and the grand palace which were impressive. Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and because we were the only ones on this tour, we had all the attention.
This was an amazing experience. Must say the tour guide did make it, he spoke well English and made us all laugh. I would recommend this tour to all visitors to Bangkok. And using Viator work extremely well. Good communication and well organised.
It was a great tour and our guide was very informative. He was vey patience and gave lots of time to talk photos. He even set us up on a personal tour of the floating market after the morning tour. It was a great day in Bangkok. I highly recommend the tour.
Great trip and service. As with our other trip booked through viatour we received a letter the day before letting us know what time we would be picked up, we had an air conditioned mini bus with our party of 5 and 1 other traveller. Our guide was good (if a little barmy!!) she gave us lots of information not only the palace but Bangkok itself, she also tried to get us round to the best bits before the crowds got there. The palace itself is amazing and well worth visiting. The only downside for us was on the way back we were then told we would be going to a jewellery centre, which we were unaware of and not interested in, we then had to walk through this before the centre got a different minibus to take us back to our hotel. Other than that its a fantastic trip.
Seeing the Grand Palace is a must for all Bangkok tourists. The guide, June, was professional, funny, knowledgeable, and spoke English very well. The only issue I had was that after I booked the tour I received an email from Viator stating that the tour was cancelled, after calling the company I just had to make arrangements to be picked up at a closer hotel.
highly recommended to visit grand place because of incredible hand made. It's really good to see when you go there and also excellent guider who will translate all history in English.
Beautiful buildings. Well maintained. Our guide was very informative. One of the best places I visited in Southesast Asia.
Simply beautiful and a diffinate "Must See" in Bangkok. I visited in the afternoon and the Grand Palace Complex was packed with visitors, so maybe morning would be better but my guide Joe was fantastic and his knowledge was exceptional.
We had plenty of time to explore this large complex and appreciate the history of the buildings. The guide was particularly helpful with the history and current politics, giving a clear perspective to the visit, and avoiding the inevitable queues. A must for every visitor to Bangkok.
The tour was great a good day out the guide very knowledgable all together well worth the money
I was so glad I booked a tour for the palace. My guide Peter was fantastic. He explained the history very well and gave me time to wander around by myself. The place was packed but it was still worth seeing. The gem factory visit at end end was the only negative - not interested.
Fantastic tour, do not miss this when you are in Bangkok. Friendly informative guide who spoke excellent English. I would highly recommend this
We were the only people on the afternoon tour, collection at the hotel was on time and our guide (Pam) was fantastic, she was full of interesting info re the Palace and the Emerald Buddha. Best to have the guide to explain everything and guide you around. Side trip to the Gem Gallery was a bonus.
I loved this tour and must have taken about 300 photos!!! We took the afternoon tour and our guide was very friendly and informative. Lucky for us, the palace was being renovated for the Kings Birthday in a few months time and everything looked fresh and new. It was amazing and I highly recommend that you include this tour in your travels! Booking online with Viator was a breeze and made our trip so much easier, many thanks....
