The guide was simply brilliant! The place is grand and with detailed explanation, the tour was a great experience.
Excellent tour guide.
I was alone on this tour so finally it was like a private tour.
Tour guide was so nice and friendly. She was very informative.
As I was traveling alone she took all my pics. Thankful for that.
I our tour was fantastic. Our guide was a very interesting and knew a great deal of information I thought that he did a very good job. The one thing that I would like to change would be to spend a little more time within temples telling more stories explain a bit more. All this said we would use the same guide again.
Really good very well organised with an excellent guide, the afternoon was only spoiled by the weather rain
Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of this wonderful site. The palace buildings and temple are very highly decorated and ornate. Good to get there early before the crowds.
Very knowlegable tour guide- was able to give us insight to history and architecture styles. The temples were stunning. The details on the architecture, the meanings behind the statues, everything was beautiful. Only thing that I did not enjoy was going by the gem warehouse after the tour was done. If I was aware of this early on, I probably would have declined from tour.
The palace complex is impressive. We didn't get to see any jewels or the inside of the palace. Wat Phra Kaew is beautiful.
It was a good tour but the grand Palace was very busy. I really was not interested in the jem factory.
The Grand Palace is packed, but despite all the foot traffic the tour was pretty enjoyable and we had a great guide! She was informative and very friendly giving us advice for places to explore while we were in the city.

We had a private tour so we adapted our tour for us. I do think that not every spot on list was covered. Guide walked by things that I thought he could have discussed. if you didn't ask he would have walked by it. History very interesting.
found the whole experience very interesting with a informative guide, well worth a visit . Go in the morning because as we were leaving the queues were endless.
We took the afternoon tour and The palace is so nice. The details of the palace is awesome. Rich in culture but have to say its crowded and hot. Lots of tourist.
Great trip, but do it as early as you can, as it gets very very busy as the day goes on. We had a great guide, he was very funny but very knowledgable.
Obviously the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew are off the scale and a MUST. The Palace was incredibly busy as you'd expect. Our guide was ok.
Definitely worth doing, if you can handle the hectic crowds of people :)
One thing to take into consideration is the sneaky gem-shop tour at the end of the “actual” tour. This put our timetable out by an additional hour and a half… Luckily we had cancelled another tour the day before that was supposed to start at around 13:00, otherwise we would have missed it...
The Grand Palace is aptly named! It is magnificent. The jade Buddha is awesome.
We took the tour on January 14, 2015. The day was gorgeous with a beautiful blue sky which brought everyone out for the day. Our guide, however, was able to lead us to the least crowded spots for better observation. Unfortunately, his English was "not-so-good" and it was difficult for me to understand him. He did seem very knowledgeable about the area.
If this is your first trip to Bangkok, I would definitely recommend a tour before venturing out on your own!
