Private Excursion to Floating market and Ayutthaya World Heritage Site
From $183.43 (Price varies by group size )
Tour of wonderful sites
, Feb 2020
Our tour guide Nick and driver were wonderful. We had a very comfortable car and they made sure we were dropped off/picked up as close to the start and end points of each tour site. Nick was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the tour. The driver was really nice. We had an early start at 7am in order to time seeing the train arrive at the Train Market. The long-boat ride was a lot of fun zooming through the canals of Bangkok and ending at the floating market. We tasted some unique foods along the way. These took up the action-packed morning. For the quieter afternoon we went for a lunch in Ayutthaya followed by touring the World Heritage Site temple ruins. We made it back to our downtown Bangkok hotel by 730pm. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. If you are sensitive to heat, I'd recommend you split this into 2 half day tours. Its a long day and you will have to content with Bangkok traffic, especially on your return - no way around it. A great tour to see some exceptional Bangkok outer-areas sites and made exceptional by the personalized experienced provide by Nick and the driver. Highly recommend.
A wonderful day trip to the Train Market, Floating Market and Ayutthaya ruins...all fascinating and enjoyable with the extraordinarily friendly, fun and informative Susie guiding us through the highlights. Professional, on time, courteous, convivial, eager to share tasty treats, and did everything to ensure that our day was perfect. Highly recommended.
Benefit from personalized attention on this private tour of Ayutthaya and the Damnoensaduak Floating Market. You can take your time exploring in the company of your dedicated guide, learning about the UNESCO-listed Ayutthaya through commentary tailored to your interests. Step aboard a longtail boat for a tour of the floating market, where you can see local residents going about their daily life.
Private Excursion to Maeklong Railway and Floating Markets
From $106.72 (Price varies by group size )
Made our trip to Bangkok
, Jan 2020
What an amazing excursion! Sawong was our guide for the day and we felt so honored to have him with us. He was truly the highlight of the trip! He took us to the train station so that we could actually ride the train into the market and see it from a different perspective (which was so fun) we then walked around the railway market and he showed us all the fun stalls, described the food and laughed and joked with us the whole time! We then went to get on the longboat which was a nice break in the day. We thought that we would actually float through the markets but, full disclosure you do not. You get out of the longboat and walk the market. At first we were disappointed but seeing how busy it was on the river and that we could eat and buy easier on land we were fine just watching! We then ended up in a fun outdoor style restaurant for Pad Thai before heading home. I would highly recommend this excursion!
Our tour with guide Pong was excellent. We booked a private tour and it was really nice to have only the three of us to keep track of, as the markets and the Maeklong Railway are very crowded. I especially liked all the treats he bought for us, letting us sample many of the local foods--which would have been difficult for us to do--not knowing the language. He provided lots of information, was very knowledgeable and attentive--good pace and all in all, a very enjoyable tour.
Private Excursion to Maeklong Railway and Floating Markets
, Oct 2019
Susie was an outstanding guide for my wife and I. Susie and the driver did an excellent job taking us to everything on the itinerary and explaining the culture. We rode the train and saw a lot of markets. She was excellent and I would recommend this trip to anyone that has never been to Thailand and is looking for a nice trip to fill up half a day. This lasted about 6 hours.
Experience the daily goings-on of the Damnoen Saduak floating market and the MaeKlong railway market with a dedicated guide on this private tour from Bangkok. Learn about the markets' history, origins, and current iterations through insightful commentary and take a long-tail boat tour on the canal. Taste some traditional Thai desserts and get free time to shop. Round-trip private transportation from Bangkok hotels is included.
This tour was wonderful for me. On the day after I arrive in Bangkok, it got me used to alot of things including the travel by boat on the river, where the boat stop is near my hotel etc. So i was then able to travel by boat on my own after the tour, which I really wanted to do. And we saw fabulous things, temples, palaces, various Breathtaking Buddha statues. Lot of good info from tour guide, who also was not at all pushy, not trying to speed things up or push me in the direction of places where i might spend money, clothes,jewellery etc, where the tour guide may get commision. (which I have experienced before). She was happy to go exactly where I wanted to go and it was a happy and relaxed tour for me.
I highly recommend a private guide! I had limited time and Elena was amazing at packing as much in as possible. She was extremely knowledgeable at every location we went. I asked to see some things off the beaten path and she took me to 5 different homes along the river outside of Bangkok that are part of an agri-tourism project and I got to see farms that grow lotus flowers, orchids, fruits, rice, etc. Each home was inviting with food and fresh water to share. I can't wait to return to see more!
Andy was absolutely amazing. We booked this private tour our first full day in Bangkok and am so glad we did. Andy helped orient us to the city and explained a lot of Thai culture and traditions so that we were aware for the rest of our trip. He was all about doing exactly what we wanted but offered advice on things to not miss. We took taxis most places but still were very go-go-go to make the most of the 8 hours we had together. We "temple hopped" with Andy and he was filled with knowledge about each place and was really passionate to share Buddhism knowledge too. My advice would be to go to the grand palace first thing, we went mid day and the crowds were terrible.
This customizable private tour showcases the best of Bangkok and beyond.

Private Tour: Kanchanaburi Erawan Waterfall, Death Railway and Elephant Care
From $201.98 (Price varies by group size )
Airey is amazing
, Feb 2020
We had an amazing tour thanks to Airey. Less than 10 minutes from the hotel, we got caught in a 2-hour traffic jam. Somehow, Airey (and our safe driver) were still able to get us to all the sites. Airey is a kind, knowledgeable person who made our day very special -- exploring the Erawan falls, the elephant reserve and so much more. THANK YOU.
Travel to Kanchanaburi on a packed full day tour that will impress you from dawn till dusk. Visit the exquisite Erawan Waterfall and swim inside the emerald green ponds.

A day at Kanchanaburi is not complete without visiting the rescued Elephants, observe and learn about the elephants. Prepare for a great day with your private professional guide, air-conditioned vehicle, and lunch included.
An awesome way to spend the day with excellent Historic information. Experiencing the floating market and train ride was pretty sweet. Our guide was very pleasant and super funny. Felt really comfortable from the very start.
I'd rate it higher if I could. Kat was wonderful. The train trip and market were astonishing. The long tail boat ride was fun even though it was a bit uncomfortable. The floating market was interesting though it could have been a bit shorter. The little boat ride was OK. Fun to do though a bit touristy. The only downside was that the van was pretty uncomfortable for such lengthy rides.
Experience two of Bangkok’s most famous traditional markets on this half-day tour. Benefit from a small group size as you ride the train to the Maeklong Railway Market, uniquely situated on a working railway track. After free time for shopping, continue to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and cruise around the stalls on a longtail boat.
It was an efficient day tour going through main Ayutthaya sites with river cruise. Logistics are well managed and we enjoyed our time fully on each site. Buffet lunch was good. PA system (on bus/vessel) may need some improvement.
Our tour to Ayutthaya was so amazing. So much to see there feels like we barely scratched the surface...but was a great way to see the countryside and experience a few of the ancient sites there. And look forward going back in the future. Our guide was very knowledgeable and really made our experience there so much better than if we were on our own. We would highly recommend this tour.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ayutthaya is a must-visit day trip destination from Bangkok. This tour is the easy way to get there as you won’t have to worry about catching a bus on your own. You’ll spend a whole day touring the archaeological sites, palaces, and temples of the former capital of Thailand. The tour includes a delicious lunch and a river cruise back to Bangkok.
In and around Bangkok Private Tour Guide with Custom Experience
From $53.04 (Price varies by group size )
, Feb 2020
Decent tour. Be aware this includes no admissions or transport. So you need cash with you at all times to pay for your admission to activities and you (& your guides) transfer costs. Wear good shoes for lots of walking. If you didn’t bring clothes that cover your knees and shoulders for the temples, there are places to rent coverings just outside.
Booked this for my parents. Tour was fine, with pick up from their hotel lobby directly. So that’s handy. My parents did not have particular sites in mind so relied on the guide to plan the itinerary. The guide suggested to skip palace as it’s too crowded during Chinese New Year. But did not plan to do floating market in the morning as it’s already closed when they ran out of sites to do in the afternoon. Think the guide should have planned the itinerary better taking into account the opening hours ahead of time. But all in all a good and comfortable way to see Bangkok in a day.
Alit was very good and knowledgeable. She was thorough throughout the process. She even stayed with is to help order our food. With her help and knowledge of local customs, we were fully prepared for our tours, what to wear to the temples, etc. I highly recommend this tour company.
Explore Bangkok with your very own tour guide during this full-day tour. Customize your own itinerary and visit Bangkok’s main attractions and some hidden gems. See the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Wat Pho, the floating market and much more and get around using the city’s incredible public transport system.

My wife and I booked this tour at the last minute late at night and were so glad we did. The following morning we were met promptly at our hotel by our tour guide called Siri. She was a Thai lady who could communicate very well in English and was well organised and very pleasant.
Following a 1 hour drive, which included a planned comfort break we visited all the key sites in Ayutthaya which were visually breathtaking. Throughout the day our tour guide Siri was very knowledgeable and informative and knew all the best spots for photo opportunities. The buffet lunch also provided was excellent with plenty of choice.
Overall a fantastic tour not to be missed and our thanks to Siri for being so friendly and professional.
Excellent tour. Private transportation with no delays.
I enjoyed the tour and got to see many historic locations in Thailand.
The tour guide was great. She knew her history and spoke English very well.
I highly recommend this tour as a family or solo.

Fun way to discover Bangkok
, Feb 2020
What a riot we had with Jazz our tour guide. Jazz is a foodie. He totally loves Thai food and was full of enthusiam throughout our tour. Time just flew by as we were having so much fun. He took us to a 5 very different food experiences and challenged our tastebuds with yummy and very different foods. There is no way were would have found these food gems among the vastness of food venues. The highlight for us was the hotpot meal where we got to cook our own food right at our table. Fun! The TukTuk drivers were really good as we were whizzed through the main and back streets seeing the sites, lights and sounds of Bangkok. Bring your appetite !!! Jazz makes sure you are totally stuffed by the time you leave. Jazz was super organized, got us through all the venues and we never felt rushed at all. Kudos to him and his TukTuk team. We had a blast and we highly recommend you either start or finish your visit to Bangkok.
We had an amazing experience with our guide who took care of us from 9am until 5pm and every step of the way. Not only did we learn so much about the history of Thailand and Bangkok, she showed us the beauty of the temples and the history behind them. We also enjoyed learning so much about the monarchy and how it is such an important aspect of Thai culture. The boat ride on the river was perfect and the restaurant for lunch was delicious. 5 star experience all around
If you’re visiting Bangkok for the first time, avoid the stress of navigating a new city on a private full-day sightseeing tour. Great for travelers with limited time, this tour covers the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew), the Grand Palace, and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho). Plus, you’ll take a cruise on the Chao Phraya River (Mae Nam Chao Phraya) and enjoy convenient hotel pickup and drop-off.
The sights were great and transportation was very prompt. Guide was very nice. Lunch at buffet was good. The only thing is I wish guide's English was a bit better as she didn't really understand questions that we would ask to be able to explain.
Skip the crowded tour buses and explore the historic Thai city of Ayutthaya at your own pace on this private guided tour from Bangkok. In the company of just your party and a guide see such attractions as Ayutthaya Historical Park and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, and enjoy an included traditional Thai lunch.
Bridge on the River Kwai and Thailand-Burma Railway Tour
Great Tour to Remember this Important History
, Feb 2020
A big day starting with a 6.10am pick up from my hotel in downtown Bangkok and we stopped to pick up the guide, Om, on the way out of the city. He explained the stops and schedule for the day as well as the history of the building of the bridge. I was really interested as my grandfather was a Japanese POW who was ne of the lucky ones that survived living and working on the bridge construction. Unfortunately I was unable to understand everything he said with his strong Thai accent. I suggest providing this information in a pamphlet as well.
We were given a good amount of time at the cemetery, museum, boat ride, bridge walk, train ride and cave/market stop. The lunch was really lovely and there were adequate toilet stops. On heading back to Bangkok, Om advised the return trip would take around 2 1/2 hours. Unfortunately this was not the case as the traffic was really bad getting back into the city. He had a phone so would be able to know this prior. No update was given and Om disembarked the bus going into the city, leaving the tour group with the bus driver who didn’t speak much English. The driver told me It would be two more hours to get to my hotel. I contacted my husband who advised when and where I should get off the bus and take a subway close to our hotel. I had to disembark in heavy traffic with motorbikes rushing by, with no apology from the driver.
Overall, I felt the tour was very good, just let down by Bangkok’s shocking traffic. I recommend the tour guide/bus driver provide better updates and provide alternative transport information.
An awesome tour of an important piece of history ,our guide and driver were great ,so were all the passengers ,the lunch was also very tasty ,I would suggest upgrading on the train,guarantees a seat.,thanks to all for a good day tour.money well worth spending.
Immerse yourself in the history of World War II during this tour to the Bridge on the River Kwai from Bangkok.

Additionally, you’ll ride along the tracks of the Death Railway, walk across the bridge itself, and take a long-tailed speedboat ride on the river.

Gimao is a fantastic tour guide.
, Feb 2020
Wow. This was our first tour in Thailand and our tour guide, Gimao, was amazing. She met us promptly at the hotel in the morning and didn't waste anytime is showing us the sites, getting there by bus, boat and feet. She shared so much with us and graciously took a whole bunch of pictures on her cell phone that she shared with us before the day was over. THANK YOU for a very special tour. Chris and David
We had such a great tour guide named Siri. She showed and explained everything to us. She even took photos on her phone and sent them to us afterwards, having us do some great and funny poses which looked wonderful. I highly recommend this tour, it was well worth it and always great to have someone knowledgeable explain what you're looking at. A+

Bravo Mr. Wat!

, Nov 2019
Siri was an amazing tour guide. She instantly made me feel relaxed and comfortable and her English was fantastic! This was a very special experience and It was like having my own private photographer so I have some very special memories. The waterfalls are just breathtaking! Well worth climbing to the 7th floor, although not for the faint hearted as it’s hard work especially in the heat. We were lucky that their had been some rain full and the waterfalls were flowing. Bamboo Rafting was also so much fun and very relaxing. Death Railway was very quite but interesting to see. Bridge over river Kwai was touristy and busy but amazing sight to see. All in all a fantastic day and well recommended!

Ayutthaya Temples Tour with River Cruise from Bangkok
From $67.70 (Price varies by group size )
, Feb 2020
It’s a wonderful place. Really different of what we see in Bangkok.
The only thing was that we have to wait to change bus because ours turn off the air conditioner.
We have to move from one temple to another sweating in the bus
This trip is a must if you have the day to squeeze it in to your travel plans. The summer palace was beautiful and we enjoyed walking around the grounds. Ayutthaya was incredible and especially enjoyed Wat Mahathat and the Buddha head in the banyon tree! Our guide Donna was spectacular., spoke excellent English and really knows her history, especially since Ayutthaya is her home town! She was truly delightful! Thank you Donna! Lunch buffet onboard the river cruise back to Bangkok was tasty and plentiful. We felt there was adequate time at each of the stops as well.
The guide was very nice. The sites were interesting. Main issue was when traveling by boat back to Bangkok, we were at the top of the boat and we nearly got hit by the bridges that were very low. Then afterwards, some security guys came when we came under low bridges. Food was nice.
Visit the Ayutthaya temples on a cultural day trip from Bangkok, it's a highlight of any Thailand visit.

Ayutthaya Ancient Temples Tour from Bangkok by Road (Multi Languages)
From $39.02 (Price varies by group size )
Very pleasant day out
, Jan 2020
Hotel pickup was very organised, the tour guide Nick (40 years experience) was very informative and could answer any of our questions with ease. The pace of the tour was pleasant as we did not feel rushed around. Only downside was that there was only one scheduled food stop 6 hours into the tour. Would recommend taking your own snacks and water, but a great tour.
Wanted to see the old city. The tour is nice and the guide said we could take a 45 minute boat ride at an extra $9 per person. We did that and enjoyed it a lot. Well worth the extra dollars.
Since the city is an hour and a half drive one way you see a lot but at a fast rate. Lunch was a buffet that was OK.
The trip is really nice, covers the most important monuments. However, the lunch place was quite disgusting and smelled terribly, yet the food was surprisingly tasty! The tour guide was very sweet, helpful, kind and had a lot of knowledge, but her English was really poor and it was hard to communicate.

Visit some of Ayutthaya’s must-see sights, including temples, palaces, and enormous Buddha statues.
