This was a great tour. Was picked up on time and taken to the dock for boat cruise. The cruise was interesting in the sense that it showed me the reality of the day-to-day lives that people in Bangkok live. My tour guide was nice and I saw the Temple of the Emerald Buddha as well as the most important rooms in the Grand Palace. Wat Arun was a little steep to climb especially for a person with size 13 shoes going up was fine, but coming down I had to slide down on my butt since that was the most effective way. The tour guide was great at relaying to me the history of Bangkok and the cultural significance of the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Overall, not to be missed!
This tour was fantastic the canal trip was great our guide was very knowledgeable, about
bangkok and the palace. A must if it is your first time in Bangkok
Have taken the tours with Viator while in Italy and this one was as expected, great guide and pickup and dropoff was easy. It was nice to have a personal guide going through the Grand Palace. He stood in line to purchase both tickets to each venue and was very informative. The canal cruise was a nice added touch to arriving at each of the venues. I would definitely recommend this tour. For the Grand Palace, check to make sure that there is no holiday the day after your tour, because they close the palace where the Emerald Buddha is located and we missed seeing it,
An exhilarating trip on the canal with some interesting sights. The temples were wonderful, but very crowded although our guide did exceptionally well
Excellent historical/cultural trip highlighting the way things used to be. Our guide was excellent. We were a tour of 5 our family so it ended up being a private tour.
Highly recommended tour - value was excellent.
Very well organised and adapted well to the terriable weather. Unfortunatly due to the weather we could not vist the Wat Arun, this was no big deal as we were soaked and just wanted to get back to the hotel. Other then that we were picked up on time and dropped back to the hotel.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. There were only three persons on the tour and the guide was both knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. This was our first introduction to Bangkok and along with the sights visited as described we had a tour of the city area as well. Cruising the canals was interesting as this is the side of a city you'd never normally experience. We would highly recommend this tour.
These were the must see sights of Bangkok. I enjoyed arriving via a wooden long boat that roger Moore had been in. Our guide was excellent and was very informative.
The guide was very friendly and knew the subject matter. I am very glad I booked with this company and took this tour. I would recommend it.
My friend and I purchased this tour and it was amazing. It was educational as well as scenic. We were able to experience areas on the canal where locals live and work. What an enlightening journey. My only wish was that we had a more time to spend at Wat Arun so that we could explore the entire premises. Nonetheless, our personal tour guide/ photographer voluntarily captured as many memories as requested. I am so glad to have booked this cruise.
I really enjoyed seeing the city another way on the tour. It was a nice small group and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. We highly recommend this canal tour. Riding in the long tail boat was a highlight of our trip to Bangkok.
Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and passionate about his country and its history. Tour was terrific and as we were the only passengers, we had time to go past the uni and other govt buildings. Would recommend the tour, the long boat was a great way to see Bangkok. Palace beautiful.
The tour company was really punctual in picking us up at the hotel and this was probably my favorite tour in Bangkok, the canals tour was great and the two temples we visited were spectacular. I will totally recommend it to a first time visitor of Bangkok. The only down side was that at times it was difficult to understand the tour guide’s English given his thick accent, never the less great tour.
We were the only people on this tour so had a really personal experience. The Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable but left us alone to wander around the attractions at our own pace so we never felt rushed. A very good value tour!!

I'm so glad that we booked this tour. Not only did it start early so we were able to enjoy Wat Arun with no other visitors, but everything was streamlined at the Grand Palace, which I was thankful for. The small tour of the waterways of old Bangkok was really enjoyable.
