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.
Great half day tour
Slynch, Feb 2020
This was a great half day tour. Going in the morning we beat the crowds. Our guide was very knowledgeable and may the morning very interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Sprint through the temples
nunhoch2000, Feb 2020
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.
Great Day

Seeing the different Buddha temple and understanding the Bangkok history

Well organized trip and our tour guide Han was very knowledgeable. I like when he gave cold bottled water after the temple visits as it helps us to feel comfortable due to heat .
A great, quick dash around Bangkok
David_E, Dec 2019
Our guide patiently waited for us as we fought Bangkok traffic to meet her. She showed us everything we wanted to see!
Excellent tour!! Thank you, Tum Tum!
Kim_R, Nov 2019
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.

Great Tour and Excellent Guide and Driver
Passenger740720, Mar 2019
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.
