Amazing tour - all booked before we left uk, not used viator before.
We were collected from hotel - great that we had own car, driver and seperate guide, guide stayed with us all the time and explained all facts about the place we were visiting. Guide spoke good english. Definitely worth the money.
Will definitely be using this company again.

Really good informative tour. The one on one tour guide makes it so much more of a better experience. We really liked the private car that chauffeurs you around to all the different locations.

This was our first trip on our 4 day visit to Bangkok and we were very impressed by the lovely tour guide. She enjoyed telling us the history of the Grand Palace and we would definitely recommend doing the private tour as you get round at your own pace and without standing in long queues.

Wonderful guide. Very helpful in managing a very crowded but incredible palace complex.

Recommend combining this private tour with the private tour of the temples and reclining Buddha.

What a wonderful place!! My guide was fully knowledgeable and explained the history and significance in great detailed. She was a wonderful guide to spend the morning with and was as impressive in her knowledge as the area is in history! Totally enjoyed my day!

A private tour is the only way to go to see this very busy tourist site. Our driver and guide were so nice and professional and took care of everything so we could just enjoy the palace and grounds. While other people were waiting in line we were escorted to each building. Even my ten year old enjoyed this tour.

Great tour guide. Very clear with english, great understanding of history and linkage to Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. Able to get us through the crowds quickly. As it was hot was also nice that it was in the morning and the tour guide moved quickly through the complex - keeping to shade where possible.
