Out of the three temples, the Marble Temple was out of reach due to the civil unrest in Bangkok that day. Our guide did not announce that, he just took us to a different temple. Also, he was ready to skip the Reclining Buddha Temple, claiming difficulty to access it. We refused and said that we were ready to walk to it, so he took us there, without any problems. It was worth it! So, it was good that we knew the temples we were suppose to see and not be tricked. His presentation was quite general; we had to ask questions to get a better understanding.
Wonderful tour. We were in the city on the King's birthday and most businesses were closed. Waaayy less traffic than the day before. We were treated to a private tour by June, a very patient and polite guide. All in all, a great experience.
This was a lovely tour. It was nice because it was private so it was nice for just my husband and I especially to have one on one connection with the tour guide where we learned a lot about the Buddhist and Thailand culture. The Buddhas were amazing especially the huge reclining one. If you're lucky there might be extra parts of the tour or other places your tour guide will take you if there is time.
The reclining Buddha and the 180 buckets behind him was so special - unforgettable!
Short n sweet, excellent guide, was very enjoyable and the fact that it was not overlong with the very hot humid weather was good
The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and I had plenty of time to explore the three temples. The last stop was at "the world's largest jewellery store" where a polite but extremely pushy sales assistant was too determined for my liking to make me buy something. Still, the private tour was worth it.
Interesting tour. Downside was that it was a special day (5th day/5th month/55 year in Buddist calendar) so very busy at each temple.
Well worth doing the private tour. Our guide made the trip most enjoyable, giving us excellent information about the different Temples and Buddha's their positions and what they represent etc etc, bringing in some humour as well. Just about the right length time wise, at least for us. A must do whilst in Bangkok.
We are so amazed how big is the reclining budha. We took alot of pictures.
Very good value for money, we felt very spolit with our private car and tour guide. He was very helpful and showed us great places in bangkok along the way to the temples. The temples are BEAUTIFUL, i couldn't stop staring at the solid gold Buddha. I definately recommend to anyone visiting Bangkok! The only downside is that they take you to a jewellery factory (Without any notice) and basically try and make you buy something. It was a major tourist trap and it ruined a perfect day out! I still reccomend though, only for the temples. They are amazing.
This was our 1st trip to Bangkok so we did this tour too see the majority of temples. We did visit many temples on the day. the last stop is the Gem Factory which is not on the itinerary!
Once again, wonderful guide and very informative. Loved having the private tour so we could have time to wander around. I would always do a private tour as it can cater to our interests and if we wanted to spend more time in an area, we could.
Well worth doing, just the guide and the two of us. The day was really hot. The guide definitely knew his history.
This is worth seeing if you have the time, but not essential.
Our guide was excellent and gave us not only a tour but an insight into Thai culture. Our bonus was that there was only us two so we had the undivided attention of the guide.
We took the private tour and our guide had answers for everything. Plus, we had all the leg room we wanted!
The tour guide was very informative, and this tour was well worth doing.
The temples were very nice. This is a must-go place in Bangkok.
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.
