See both the popular and lesser-known sights of Bangkok on this 4.5-hour private tour. With a private guide, you'll get a glimpse of daily life in Bangkok as you visit temples and a market, take a tuk-tuk ride, and listen to stories about the city. Starting time is flexible based on your preferences.
  • Half-day private Bangkok city tour
  • See both main attractions and hidden gems
  • Visit temples, including Wat Pho, known for its reclining Buddha
  • Take a boat ride, bus ride, and tuk-tuk ride
  • Enjoy personalized attention from a private guide
Your tour starts by meeting your private guide at a location in Bangkok, which you'll get to know over the course of this experience that introduces you to the city's hidden gems.
Your first stop is a spot that provides a view of Wat Traimit before you head to the temple itself, home to a gold Buddha statue. Continue to the market in Chinatown, a food hub packed with stalls, eateries, shops, and Chinese temples, and then hop on a local bus with your guide to reach Pak Khlong Talat (Flower Market), where locals buy flowers to use as offerings at temples.
Next up, cross the Memorial Bridge over the Chao Phraya River, and then take a break for lunch with your guide (own expense). After eating, head to Wat Pho, a Buddhist temple complex famous for its reclining Buddha. This temple is also known as the birthplace of Thai massage. You'll then hop on another mode of transport—a tuk-tuk—for a ride along busy streets to reach the Golden Mount (Wat Saket), a manmade hill topped with a gold stupa. Here you'll have a 360-degree view of Bangkok.
Finally, take a boat ride from Phan Pa Klong, enjoying scenes of local life along the canals; keep your eyes open for water monitor lizards, too. Your tour ends with a drink at a local spot chosen by your guide (own expense).

Met Artty at the station meeting point and set off on a great individual tour. I am a solo traveller but Artty's easy going attitude would suit any size tour. After chatting about what I wanted to see he took me to see sites I may not have thought about including the monks school, the streets of China town a bus journey and a temple well off the beaten track where we sat and spoke about Buddhism. The tour concluded with a tuk tuk and a canel boat trip.

Awesome isn't a good enough description of Tony's guidance, stories and insiders view of Bangkok! We walked alot, talked alot, shared mangos chunks with turtles to share good karma, saw some temples, in particular, Wat Po! We saw so much - flower market, China Town, along the river and other markets too. Fabulous day, Tony gets a 10 out of 10!

Such a great tour! Tony, our guide, was so knowledgeable and spoke great English. He took us to some fantastic little gems and we got to experience Bangkok as locals. He was really flexible and tailored the tour as we went along and accommodated all our requests. Highly recommend this tour.

Our guide, Keikei, is cheerful, punctual, knowledgeable and very informative on Thai history, culture and religion. She took care of my parents very well and took great photos too. She adjusted the pace of walking tour to accomodate us and ensured that we have sufficient time for each destination. We had great fun in her guided walks, taking ferry, canal boat, bus and tuk tuk in this trip. Highly recommended this tour!
