The tour was well organised and informative. The guide was knowledgeable but needed prompting. We could not understand why, but she wouldn't come with us into the temples, except the last one, so once in we were left without much commentary. The wats were worth seeing. We didn't feel rushed, and the guide allowed sufficient time for photos.
We had a very good guide who allowed us enough time to really take in all the sights. We were never rushed, which makes it so much more enjoyable. Private tours are worth the little bit of difference in price.
A tour either private or public is a must in order to fully appreciate the temples, in this case 3 were visited. Guide was good. At the end we were dropped at a gem factory store not on the tour - shown a movie of gem making in Thailand. A bit of a tourist trap in a way and dropped back to our hotel with another group, instead of the private tour return. The tour is however, worth doing. Since the weather is so hot and humid do two separate tours. One of just the Grand Palace and the other of 2-3 other temples. You'll be glad you did!
Impossible to describe the grandeur of the temples - it simply has to be seen!
I enjoyed this tour a lot and the guide was very good.
Same as my other private tour on Grand Palace Complex and Wat Phra Kaew. The tour was less than 2 hours, which the last 1 hour was reserve by the tour guide to take us to the jewelry shop.
Regretably our tour guide had a very loud headache inducing voice. She was polite and nice and I can't fault her too much, but couldn't/wouldn't take another private tour with her. She seemed out of touch with our needs. Maybe she was used to yelling at large tour groups. Kind of ruined it for us that whole day. The temples seemed great otherwise.
Our guide was lovely, yet she was not really into it on our tour day. We were waiting for her most of the time as she was tired from the day before. One of the temples was closed, and we weren't offered another. Would recommend seeing the temples but not sure if the private tour is worth the extra money.
Guide and driver were ok, but there were mistakes with the reconfirmation.
Much better if you are traveling in groups of 4 or more. Did not see third temple as being used for government function and area was cordoned off, and no substitute was offered.
This was a very interesting tour, but all the traffic getting there and back to our hotel was horrendous and spoiled the day.
Guide could have been a little more friendly and the tour was a little too rushed.
