Not a big kickboxing fan, but this was actually quite entertaining. The goings on in the audience is worth the admission, betting, etc.
A must see if you are in Bangkok. We were picked up right on time by our guide Jonny. The driver was nice and provided a calm and safe trip. Jonny asked if we had already had dinner and kindly recommended a nice restaurant before the main fights started which was fantastic since we landed at 3pm making it a tight schedule and we were prepared to miss dinner. But it all worked out great. Jonny is very knowledgeable about Muay Thai and boxing in general - he is a big fan, and able to answer all our questions. The VIP seats were amazingly close to the ring, the atmosphere was fantastic. We got photos with the Main Event fighter. All fighters were skilled, and respectful to their club, coach and ref. There was no name calling or bad mouthing like other forms of fighting. It was overall very enjoyable and we will go to another Muay Thai fight next time we are in Bangkok.
It was also exactly what we were hoping for + a bit more, tour guide was GREAT too!

We got picked up on time from our hotel and drove 2 hours in the horrible traffic to make it to Lumpinee stadium(I'd recommend picking one of the days at the other stadium for this reason). Our guide was very nice. He answered all our questions, sat with us and described the fight to us and even got our picture taken with the winner of the main event. The ride home was only 30 minutes! I'd highly recommend this!
Our guide was very friendly and well organised but I would not say this trip is worth the money. If you buy ringside seats and book a taxi you will pay half and have a similar experience. The muay thai is worth seeing for sure.
We enjoyed our night at Muay Thai, but I think this tour is overpriced for what you get. We could have taken a taxi and bought VIP tickets for half what we paid for this tour and we didn't get all that much additional information from our guide. I'd definitely recommend a night at the national stadium, but I'd probably do a DIY approach next time.
I would like to receive the official bill by Viator which mentioned the cost fully charged, thank you.
My husband went to this tour by himself and came back very upset. The guide told him to meet him outside at 9pm and that is the time the main event started. He stayed to see the main event and the guide came looking for him very upset. So what did we pay for. The service level has declined.
