Felt very rushed by tour guide, 10 minutes here 5 there, could not enjoy time at floating market. So rushed, that there was more driving involved than the floating market itself!

We had a wonderful time seeing the floating markets of Bangkok. We had the best guide. Her name is Nooee phonetically. She was very generous with information. She made the tour most interesting. Then we went to visit a Thai village to see how they make their handicrafts of weaving, martial arts, pottery, parasol painting. All most interesting. But Nooee was the best part. Actually she is one of two best guides we had in Thailand. Highly recommended tour. Thank you Nooee.

I was clearly informed of the pickup time. Very punctual. Clean and comfy vehicle. Good guide who provided clearly explanations. However, the tour started very early 7am and I then found myself having an early lunch, more wait to enter the cultural centre and then the guide dropped me there before the show telling me to have a rest....I did not even have time to check my watch and so did not realise I would have had to wait 1h30 hours for a show. I managed to get hold of him again and decided to drive back to the hotel. Not much going on at the cultural centre. That said, the floating markets, boat ride on the canals, temple and information about coconuts were amazing. Probably better as a half day tour, skipping the cultural centre in the afternoon.

When I book a private tour I expect a guide that is informative and makes the trip interesting. I do not expect one that sleeps between locations, leaves us to our own devices and spends the time sitting in cafes eating and drinking! The locations were as expected, but the tour guide was a waste of space!

Enjoyed the floating markets and, whilst they are more commercial now than when my parents visited back in the 1970s, there were still some bargains to be purchased. The long tail boat ride up the canals was interesting. The Rose Garden Cultural Centre wasn't quite what we expected - very commecial. Enjoyed the show inside but the elephant show was somewhat disappointing. Would revisit the markets but wouldn't bother about returing the centre.

JAMES G

Worst private tour of our lot, we asked to modify the tour (more time at one place , less time at another) and rthe equest was not honored by rude, deceiptful and uninformative tour guide( at first he said no problem then didn't do as asked then got mad and rude when we called him on it). Why bother paying extra for the private tour then? Floating markets are sort of a must but can get crowded, cultural center was just OK, not a must see but nice if you have the extra time.

This was our most enjoyable day out; the rose garden was fabulous. Again, our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Once again, the food and restaurant were first class. I even purchased a hat from one of the floating market stalls.

Stephen B

A must-do! The boat ride was fun with so many people from all over the world in one place. The private tour was the best of all. You get so much more from a private tour for just a little more money. There was plenty of time for shopping, and we had a wonderful guide. We were never rushed and treated extremely well. We were very informed and given personal attention and even cold packs for our necks to cool down. (The heat can get to you.) The car ride to the Rose Garden takes a little while but is worth it. We rode in nice, clean and comfortable air-conditioned sedans. The gardens are beautiful and lunch, elephant ride and show were wonderful, too. We really got our money's worth!
