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!
Great tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. I just wish we didn't stop at the coconut farm and had more time at the market.
It was nice to see the some traditional Thai way of living. We went during the week and so did not see much food in boats on the water. We enjoyed the experience.
Nice few hours tour and can be used to buy some souviners s well. Optional elephant rise is recommended if you have not done that already during your trip. Make sure you leave early to avoid the traffic as it is 1.5 - 2 hours ride.
Good trip, but a bit disorganised at the orchid farm. The floating market was great and the shopping was really good.
Very good. We had trouble understanding the guide's English, but his organisation and enthusiasm made up for it. Very good. Great experience.
Interesting to see the inhabitants are selling their goods. My only criticism is that this hac become just a tourist attraction you see a lots of tourists cruising on the water.
This was a great trip to do if you have a half day to spare. from around 6am-1pm returned back at your hotel. Our tour had about 12-14 ppl on, and the tour guide was very helpful and friendly, and spoke good english. He told us interesting information and history on Bangkok. The floating markets are a good experience to see, but I would say they are made for tourists, and don't feel very authentic. The people at the stalls are also pushy, so be prepared to ignore them! Prices are high, and I wouldn't really recommend shopping there Chatuchak Markets are better value for money. You must try the Mango sticky rice, was delicious! 50 Bhat I think. What I enjoyed was the bus ride out of the city, seeing Rural Bangkok and being somewhere different, it was a welcome change. I got some great photos of the markets which are interesting and unique to Thailand, so that is a good souvenir for me!The transport is air conditioned and no hassles- Just be prepared for an early start! They also have snakes and monkeys you can hold at the markets for a cost 600 Bhat. I would recommend this tour if you want a relaxing and not too busy day!
The guide is very good! The market is not amazing, but it is a good idea if you have time!

Tour guide very good - friendly and informative. James Bond boat along canals exciting. Market bustling - too many boats jostling for space at times though. Very worthwhile trip.
Nice except on the last part of our trip back,we had to take the sky train on ur wy back to the hotel. The van who picked us up didnt show up. The tour was excellent.
We loved our tour and especially our tour guide. Thanks for helping to make our trip to Bangkok so enjoyable.
Our guide was wonderful and took good care of us, but the markets have become too commercial and crowded. It was mostly a buying, selling experience. Which is what a market should be, but not what I was looking for. Overall it is worth doing.
It is a new experience. It was nice being in the long boat to get there and seeing the environment. It was also nice shopping from boats. The tour guide was really good.
The floating Market itself was excellent and a great experience for anyone on a trip to Thailand. Many things to see, buy and eat and a lot of fun sitting on the long boats watching people buy and sell. i would give the floating market 5 stars on its own, however the overall experience wasn't 5 stars. There were a few fillers before arriving at the floating market which were not necessary or seemed too long. In one particular filler, we were told that we had 30min to look around, however there was nothing really to look at after the tour guide showed us everything already. Probably really need around 10-15min at most.
The tour started on time, was picked up at my hotel one hour before it started. The tour was very informative and good. The actual tour of the floating market was a good experience though I wouldn't recommend shopping there because prices are expensive since it's a tourist attraction. The tour guide was really nice. Gave us the option if we wanted to be dropped off at the hotel or at the shopping areas MBK or Siam Square after the tour.
floating markets was a great tour just a shame our vouchers came through after we had left home so had a lot of running around and phone call to find out pick ups
The floating markets are very unique and should not be missed. From people cooking food on the paddle boats to the stalls along the canal, it is a colorful and busy, busy sight. Everything about the tour went like clock work.
It's worth to know what's the traditional floating market, had a nice tour guide.
Its a must do if you want to visit bangkok. There are stalls that sells souvenier stuff and you can haggle for a nice price. Nice experience.
It was a great trip well worth the money got to see a lot of the countryside on our way to the market .
