This tour was so much better than the alms giving tour. The guide spoke good English, very knowledgeable in his explainations of the temples and royal palace visited. The tour guide was a former monk so his knowlegde of the temples were from an insider perspective.
Would recommend this tour especially over the poor alms giving tour we went on.
