This tour was amazing. I can tell you about the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, but until you experience it yourself, I cannot do it justice. A solid gold Buddha the equivalent of a city block is just beyond words to describe. Just amazing! The Marble Temple was really pretty and I liked how my guide showed me the proper way to give alms to the monks and pray. The Golden Buddha was in Bangkok's Chinatown and it was interesting seeing a different artistic interpretation of the Buddha. Tour guide was great imparting knowledge of Buddhist and Thai history and culture. If you do only one your in Bangkok make it this one!

we loved our tour guide peter! he was so funny and he told us very interesting details about the temples. the only negative thing was the end of the tour. they took us to a jewellery store which we were not interested at all and did not know that we would go there beforehand.

I was the only person on my tour and Cherry was a wonderful guide. She gave me lots of detailed answers to my questions and made sure I was always comfortable...cold water, kept sending me to the shady spots! And the temples were magnificent. Such a memorable afternoon.

The tour was just me and my grandfather so it was incredibly private! A little confusing with the hotel pick-up since we weren't staying at a hotel listed, so we walked to the closest one. The driver was a bit confused, however, the staff at this hotel was incredibly helpful and gave directions. The tour was wonderful! Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. The wats were absolutely stunning and this really was the highlight of our Bangkok tour!
