We did the half day and it was fantastic. The long tail speed boat was such a blast. Our guide was really enthusiastic and informative. He gave us a great history lesson of past and present day Thailand. The floating market is not to be missed.
The guide was great and gave us lots of information. This is the second time I've taken this tour and this time was as good as the first time. It is definitely organised for the tourist but saying that it was still fun. Make sure you try the deep fried bananas. YUM!
I enjoyed the bargaining. It was really fun.
I am no stranger to Thailand, but had never done this. Our guide was WONDERFUL, spoke very good English and shared so many facts about the life of Thai people along the way. The boat trip to the market was so serene. A little more time at the market would have been nice. Sure it is a tourist attraction, but if it wasn't worth doing it wouldn't be! Be sure to buy some fresh produce from the boats so they will continue to make the journey to the market to amaze us. Don't forget your camera! This was my fifth trip to Thailand this year and it still amazes me! There is so much to see along the way to and from the market.
You'll find different things here, real Thai food, Buddha statues, clothes, etc. If you go to Bangkok you have to go to a floating market. This is one of the most important, it's far from Bangkok but you'll have fun.
This was a very interesting tour and our guide was very good! If you're in the area you should definitely try to see the floating market. Watch out for the Tiger Balm vendors!
Excellent tour. Worth 100%. Wonderful guide. It provides excellent overview of the area with great explanation, as well as free time in a place where floating markets have much to offer. I would recommend this tour even for first timers in Thailand. Great quality / price rate.
Trip to the floating market was fantastic, the only down side is the wasted time spent and the coconut and wood factory. Would of preferred to spend longer at the market that visiting places that was of no interest to me.
A good trip which was well worth the money. Very much a tourist event rather than anything more authentic but lots of fun nonetheless. It was helpful that the trip was timed to arrive at the market early as it was really packed as we left.
Enjoyed the boat ride to the floating market. Loved being able to hold the boa constrictor snake upon arrival . The market itself had average merchandise- loved the vendor that sold the gorgeous sandels. Overall it was a great tour.
We totally enjoyed this trip !! We were 3 girls and I recommend this to all families and girls. Don't know if single guys will enjoy something like this. But its something traditional to Thailand and shouldn't be missed. The pick up was on time. Although our hotel wasn't in the list of pick up hotels. They were kind enough to pick us up from our hotel. The tour guide was very kind and nice and well informed. Our transfer bus was very spacious and comfortable. Wish we had more time to spend there ! Remember to bargain like mad there on everything and anything. Good fun !!
I loved this tour, it was quiet an experience, a little scary and if you don't like boats or water I really wouldn't do the tour as you feel like the boat will tip over at any moment. However the shopping is great and you can get some really good deals. The boats are a bit of a novelty thing as you can simply walk around the markets and cross over bridges to get top the other side.
