We had a wonderful start to our holiday with this trip. The guide was informative and funny. Although it was a very touristy and busy place we felt like we had experienced a special part of Thai life for those in this area. We were very pleased to have booked the trip through Viator. They are very well organised and kept excellent contact. Thanks
My tour was amazing... I had the best tour guide... Her name is yellie and she is the best ... My experience in Bangkok would not have been the same if it wasn't for her......I highly recommend...
An absolutely amazing trip. This tour gives you a true idea of the day to day life around Bangkok and gives you a chance to be part of that experience. Our guide gave a great commentary during the trip. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Bangkok.
The entire tour, from the hotel pick-up, the 1.5-hour journey to Damnoen Saduak and back was a breeze. It's good to start early as the during a weekend as the crowd hasn't built up yet when we arrived at the market. Bargain for goods and foods in any part of the floating market is a must! Never give in to opening prices as this is a touristy site. The tour guide was attentive to us throughout the journey. It was quite an interesting experience for me, and a must-see, as the floating market is quite unique to Bangkok. Also visited coconut processing factory and wood factory.
Floating market now more of a tourist attraction than a real market but the tour was fun and the guide very informative. Various stops to and from the market broke up the long ride nicely and provided some insight into how Thai's use coconut and some expert woodworking shops. Enjoyed the tour and finally got to see Thailand's floating markets.
They were on time (actually 10 minutes early) to my hotel, great guide - friendly and funny.
The guide was awesome and gave us great insight into the local area/culture. The bus was air conditioned (as promised) and super comfortable to take a nap in on the way back from the tour.
Be prepared to interact with pushy sales people on the tour! They will literally put products into your hands to get you interested in buying but for some of the items, you can't beat the price. Make sure to negotiate which is a part of the fun.
The food was incredible and hard to believe it came from a small boat. Amazing fresh fruit too.
Great experience and well worth the cost (which was a lot lower than the tour our hotel was trying to book us on!) Would highly recommend this tour.
*Went on the tour on April 18th- pickup from W Bangkok Hotel.
Another mind blowing experience. Quite a long trip from Bangkok but worth it. The longtail boat to get to the market was amazing and when you get to the actual floating market it was everything I hoped for and more. You can buy your lunch when on the slower second boat going through the stalls. Cost 40 bahts for a bowl of noodles with chicken etc. Also huge market on canal bank where you can walk through afterwards.
This is a great tour. It gives you a chance to get out of the city and have a look at some of the country which is so different to Bangkok. Yes, the markets are quite commercial but interesting anyway. A great way to spend a morning.

The floating markets are a must see in Bangkok. This tour made it easy getting there and allowed us to spend plenty of time enjoying the sights.
Brilliant day Trip. The coach was very pleasant and air conned. Our guide spoke better English than me and I'm English. She was also very knowledgable and made our journey interesting.
The water market itself was a brilliant experience, a highlight of our stay in Thailand.
The tour guide was great. He explained everything as we drove to the market. Couldn't have been better.
