I really enjoyed this tour. It was well organised, and the guide was informative, helpful and friendly. The peaceful and calm backwaters were a far cry from the noise of Bangkok. We visited temples, an orchid farm and an artists village. This was a high point of my trip.
A great tour of the old Bangkok, we enjoyed it very much and our guide was very informative.
We had a wonderful time! The trip was informative, interesting and lots of fun. It was a great way to see a different side of Bangkok. I
This tour was amazing. You can see area of Bangkok that usually only locals got through. Most of all, you can see how people used to and still live around the canals surrounding Bangkok. The boat stopped at a few locations: a temple, a small village including the famous Artist's House, and at a orchid farm. We also got the change to feed the cat fishes that abound in the canals. I would definitively recommend if you want to see the real Bangkok outside of the usual tourist attractions. Tip: since the trip is on a boat, make sure you bring a raincoat to cover form some occasional splashes.
Good tour but would have preferred more time to walk around
The tour was well organized and provides an interesting picture of the cultural contrasts of the city. It is a great way to introduce the less famous but equally interesting side of the city.
Good trip away from the shops and traffic.Our guide was full of information about all of the buildings and temples beside the klongs.Relaxing and informative.
Touring by boat was awesome, temple tour by foot was draining due to the 42 degrees Celsius weather! Otherwise highly recommended. You will learn a lot about Thailand's history.
Probably a better experience than hiring a longtail boat yourself. The guide did not have a loudspeaker he said it was broken. So only the people seated directly in foot of and behind him could hear what he was saying. Nothing was going on at the Artist House when we stopped there, but it was interesting to see. The orchid farm was pretty lame. But we encountered a vendor on the water selling amazing friend bananas and potatoes that were fantastic. Tour was kind of long for sitting on that hard plank boat seat.
Great way to see the klongs. Tour included yet another temple Monty Python anyone? an artisans village not much evidence of any actual artisaning a lovely orchid farm, and catfish feeding. Bought some lovely banana fritters from a lady with a open fire deep fryer on her boat - worth 20 baht for her courage. Tour narration a bit mundane, lots of description of what we were looking at we know - we can see it! but not much explanation of life on the klongs or their social / cultural history.
The hard seats on the boat got really uncomfortable after a while.
