Gallier, Apr 2023
Was good to go out early as the heat was too much if you went later. The temples were amazing and Luk our guide told us lots of interesting tales and history. She also explained some of the beliefs like banging the gong. We were lucky to see a new monk ceremony and his family all there supporting him Didn't feel rushed and were able to see everything at a good pace. Would recommend.

Introduction to old Bangkok temples
Au_K, Jul 2022
This tour includes 3 temples in the old town of Bangkok including the famous Wat Pho with the Reclining Buddha. There is a lot of history involved including the different types of Buddha statues. The guide had a bit of problem expressing herself in English - this was the only drawback.
Very good tour
Ron_G, Jul 2022

Tum tum was the best
Kanita_M, Jul 2022
This was an incredible experience. The temples were gorgeous and Tum Tum was amazing. She was very well versed in all the rich history and extremely attentive to me. I did start to feel ill because of the heat so definitely drink alot of water and bring a fan if possible. Tum Tum was prepared with an umbrella for me. I highly recommend doing this wonderful tour.
Great and friendly tour guide
Guoxin_L, Jun 2022
Very professional and courteous guide. Very patient in helping to answer my many questions and I would highly recommend.
Lucky I had Luck as a guide!
Jody_K, May 2022
The tour was amazing, the temples were stunning and so beautifully peaceful. But best of all was my tour guide Luck. She was brilliant, informative and her English was excellent. She shared so much knowledge and laughter. I would highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky enough to get Luck as your guide it’ll be 10 stars not just 5 🤩
Very good 👍
Richard_S, Feb 2020
Very knowledgeable guide and comfortable transport. Highly recommended. Just the right length of tour, as you could get “Templed” out. Take plenty of water.
