Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Private Tour: Bangkok Temples including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Even though it was just me, they ran this tour with a guide and a driver. Both were very friendly and the guide taught me a lot about the places we were visiting.
Having a guide was excellent and the visit was inspirational.
I highly recommend this private tour of some of the most beautiful and unique sites in Bangkok. My guide and driver took great care of me and gave me the flexibility to spend as much time as I wanted in certain places. It was an informative and fun afternoon!
Very knowledgeable tour guide, driver waiting to take us to the next temple without waiting in the heat, much more comfortable than getting on and off buses.
This was the best tour of the 4 we took. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative throughout. The driver was able to get us around the city quickly (which is no small feat in Bangkok). My only recommendation would be to ask first if there is any interest in the gem factory before ending the tour there. I do not go on vacation to shop for jewelry so this stop was of no interest to me
Loved everything about it! Punctual tour guide, knowledgable, and very accommodating.
This tour was lovely! Our tour guide (and driver!) was super nice: he gave us a little bit of history at each temple, then let us explore at our own pace. To me, that is the PERFECT combination tour. My sister and I were treated extremely well on this tour, and had service to and from our hotel. All in all, the day was a great experience! We had to go through the government-run gem factory at the end, but I was aware of this (thanks to other reviewers!). Instead of being pressured to buy gems, I had a conversation with our saleswoman until it was time to go. We made it through the factory in record time! :)
We left the W hotel at 8:00 am and was finished by 12:00. The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the history of Thailand and all the temples. We would highly recommend the tour if you are in Bangkok.
Wonderful tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and spoke great English.
Our tour guide was great. He took great care of us and placed us in the right spots for photos. He was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. We did this tour and the Grand Palace on the same day and that worked out wonderfully. We stayed with the same guide and saved time. Did I mention the guide was great? He allowed us to speed up and slow down as we wanted and even take an unscheduled street vendor stop without question. We were lucky enough to stumble on a monk being ordained and our guide explained everything and put us in place to get favors. Highly recommend.
Very good tour and guide. We booked private as my husband is in a wheelchair but can transfer in and out and walk up steps. We were taken very good care of and saw all we wanted to see. There is lots that is possible to see by wheelchair and a couple of the temples had lifts. As soon as we had finished one temple our driver was waiting so we had no hanging about for other people. If you are disabled it is possible to do this tour with little problems but I think having the 1-1 help was a bonus.
nice tour guide, keep taking photo for us in the best position
A private tour of the most important temples is a good idea, because the guide has to keep track of you, not the other way around when you're with a group.
Oddly enough, the concierge of the hotel will check to make sure that you're dressed appropriately before you leave with the guide. Expect to remove your shoes before going into a temple.
You'll drive through Chinatown before it gets busy, past the flower and vegetable market (the guide said that orchids cost about US$1 for 100 of them!), and you'll end up in a gem factory for a film presentation and walk through.
The timing is such that if you do this tour in the morning, you can go on the Rice Barge Cruise in the afternoon.
Good trip. Attentive knowledgeable guide. Well worth the money. The temples were fantastic.
A very good way to see the temples. The guide Mr Lam was enthusiastic and gave enough time at each site and answered all our questions. Great boat trip part way through the afternoon which gave a completely different view of Bangkok. Great afternoon, many thanks.
Amazing tour. Our guide had amazing knowledge of the temples. I would happily do the tour again.
We had a wonderful experience. Our guide was very good and informative.
In spite the agency was the same that did grand palace, this time the guide was better. The tour fantastic
What a treat!! Reclining Buddha was unbelievable. Thoroughly enjoyed the private tour, much more personal and no waiting for others. Guide was excellent, highly recommend this tour!!!
Fantastic tour of the temples with a very knowledgeable tour guide. He picked us up promptly and we travelled in a luxury air-conditioned mini bus. Was amazed and awe-struck by everything we saw on the tour and it was lovely that being a private tour it was just me and my family and we could adapt the tour to suit our own needs ie longer at some temples than others. Definitely would recommend .
Great trip, good guide who was very informative. You must visit these temples when in bangkok and booking a trip like this is in my opinion the best way to see them. The traffic in Bangkok is a nightmare so trying to do it on your own is not easy added to this the information we received about Bangkok as we were travelling to the temples and the information given about the temples when there was great .I would reccomed this trip and when I booked the variance in price was not that much more for the private tour so it made it worth it as I am partially deaf and if I did not hear the guide for any reason (it is busy at each temple) I could just ask him to repeat as it was only us he was presenting to.
A must do in Bangkok.
My friend and I really enjoyed the tour. Our local tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, sincere, and overall, great guy. He shared his experience as a Buddhist monk as he discussed the importance and history of Buddhism in Thailand and the significance of each temple. I recommend this tour to everyone if you ever visit Bangkok.
Met by guide and driver. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, patient with photography and questions, english very good and very cheerful.
Did back to back tours, guide was great, very knowledgeable and thorough.
