Sprint through the temples

The overall tour felt very rushed. We saw three temples but didn't have sufficient time to fully experience the beauty of each one. This was our first tour of a three week trip in Thailand and is was a least favorite tour guide. Although she was friendly and contacted us in advance of our hotel pickup time, her overall knowledge of the temples we visited was limited. There was too much conversation about personal feelings regarding the country's current king. Not to mention personal stories and picture sharing of the guides cat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and were blessed with the BEST tour guide named Tum Tum. She was very knowledgeable and never got tired of taking pictures of us. These temples are a must-see in Bangkok! They are so beautiful, intricately detailed, and will take your breath away. Thank you, Tum Tum! Such a wonderful start to our trip.

We had read up about the tour and had a good idea of what we will see but we had no idea the Guide (Tiny) and the driver would be so great! The temples and the Reclining Buddha were beautiful and thanks to the guide (Tiny) we got a very good idea of the history associated with these. All in all it was a wonderful tour.
