You’ll make stops at Wat Pho, the Grand Palace and the Jim Thompson House, and float down the Chao Phraya River and one of its ‘klongs’ (canals).

What You Can Expect

Bangkok in Motion: City Tour by Skytrain, Boat, and Tuk Tuk

Bangkok in Motion: City Tour by Skytrain, Boat and Tuk Tuk

See Bangkok by public transport, starting your full-day sightseeing tour with pickup from your hotel. If you opt for a morning walk to Lumpini Park — aka Central Park — your guide picks you up one hour earlier; see locals doing their morning exercises in the park against a backdrop of skyscrapers in the heart of the Thai capital. 

From Lumpini Park or your hotel, follow your guide to the nearest BTS station for a short skytrain ride. View downtown Bangkok en route to Saphan Taksin station, located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River where you’ll board a public boat.

You’ll disembark the boat near Wat Pho, which houses the 150-foot-long (46-meter) Reclining Buddha. From here, walk to the Grand Palace, the official royal residence, and witness its revered Emerald Buddha housed in Wat Phra Kaew.

Take a lunch break at a nearby restaurant (own expense) before venturing on foot — or tuk-tuk — to Soi Ban Batra. Admire the monks’ alms bowls made by a handicraft family before you return on foot to Ratchadamnoen Avenue, often referred to as the Thai Champs Elysées. Hop inside another tuk-tuk to reach Saen Saeb klong for a commuter shuttle boat ride.

It’s a short walk from the Ratchathewi boat station to the Jim Thompson House, located in the former home of the Thai Silk Company's founder. Explore the art and antiques inside teak houses at the museum complex with your guide.

At the end of your Bangkok tour, take advantage of a shopping opportunity at one of five large complexes in the area — MBK, Siam Square, Siam Center, Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon — or simply return to your hotel by skytrain, accompanied by your guide.

This turned out to be a private tour for may wife and me. Fabulous tour and wonderful guide. It was very hot that day and he was patient with us and let us travel at a pace we could handle. Learned so much about the kings of Bangkok and the temples. Transportation modes were great fun, could not have managed this on our own.

This was our first tour when we got to Bangkok and it was so much fun. We had a group of eight and all hit it off right away. Our guide Om, was young and very personable and funny. He spoke very good english and knew so much about Bangkok, his hometown. We rode in tuk tuks which was a blast! Its a great way to see the city! We took in street food stalls and tried lots of interesting food. We went through the flower market and had a refreshing snack and drink there while arranging our own lotus flowers. The temple tour is fantastic, at night whith all the lights and colors..and less crowded than during the day. We had the best pad thai at a restaurant where the line to get in circled the block but we walked right in, no waiting! All in all, it was a wonderful way to kick off our Time in Thailand. I highly recommend this tour! You will love it!

Words cannot express how thankful we are with this tour. As extensive travellers and after taking tons of tours, this has been the BEST one. Seriously, if you are going to Bangkok, you better do this one, and you must ask for Vicky, she has been the best guide EVER. We can't believe that day just happened so awesome. We will cherish this memory forever. Vicky was like she was a friend from all of our lives, taking care of us, showing the sites, explaining culture, talking and talking. What a superb person. And the tour itself is amazing, you get to feel like a local taking all public transportations. The temples, the water ride, the tuctucs, a lot happened only in a day. Thank you again and please thank Vicky in our name. Hope that every tour guide could be as great and awesome as her.

Definitely a great way to see Bangkok. We were collected by Ling at our hotel and then took the sky train which is quick,clean and efficient.
Ling knows all the short cuts so you don't spend too much time waiting in queues. The Grand Palace was amazing as was Wat Po, both well worth seeing. Transport on the river worth doing, seeing the city from a different perspective. Throw in Tuk Tuk ride and you certainly feel you've seen Bangkok from all angles. You can stop and take as many breaks as you like, and she will tailor your trip to your requirements. Would definitely recommend.

Great tour, was the solo traveler, had a chance to experience Bangkok as a local, being shown and hosted by a local who was very kind. I enjoyed this very much.
