Overview

Discover Bangkok via its public transportation system as you travel with a guide throughout the city by skytrain, 'tuk-tuk' (motorized rickshaw), public boat and shuttle boat — and on foot. 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). Opt for an additional early morning stroll in Lumpini Park on this small-group tour, limited to 10 people to ensure personalized attention.
  • Full-day Bangkok sightseeing by public transportation
  • Discover the bustling capital city by skytrain, tuk tuk and on foot
  • Ride a public boat on the Chao Phraya River and a commuter shuttle boat on the klong
  • Choose the option of rising earlier for a morning stroll in Lumpini Park (also known as Bangkok’s Central Park)
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 ensures a more personalized experience with your knowledgeable local guide
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.

Sally was our guide for this tour
She was waiting outside our accommodation and found out we were she was to be our exclusive guide
We headed for the BTS National Stadium and caught the train to the river
Boarded a ferry to the grand palace and the onto the reclining Buddha
We had lunch as well at our expense before taking tuktuk and river boat to Jim Thompson house which coincidentally was in the same street as our accommodation
Sally was a great guide - very knowledgeable.
Totally recommend if you do to want to sit in a bus or van and wait in traffic. We loved it

This tour was advertised as a full day tour. Our guide Tom arrived at our hotel 10 minutes late, not a problem and there was only my wife and I on the tour. We went to Limpini park via the BTS metro although Tom didn't seem aware that the park was our first stop. From there we went to the Grand Palace which was very impressive and fairly quiet. We also visited Wat Pho and the Jim Thompson House. We travelled by BTS skytrain, tuk-tuk, public boat and taxi when Tom felt it was too hot by tuk-tuk. Tom was knowledgeable although he did move quickly, so much so that having asked him to guide us to MBK centre, we were finished. It was 12:15. Although this is a good tour, I do not see that it needs a full day even with a bigger group. As such I think what we paid was very expensive for what we got.

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.

It is advertised as a full day tour but we were the only ones on it and it finished at 12.30. This messed up our last day in Bangkok as we had to check out of our hotel in the morning and were banking on spending the day out on the tour before flying home in the evening. We reckoned we would just have time for a meal between the end of the tour and leaving for the airport, but as it was we had to spend all afternoon hanging around with our luggage all packed away and no hotel room. Our guide Mary was very sweet and good but you should not advertise the tour as being a full day when it ended at 12.30.

Good excursion and a lovely way to explore some of Bangkok's main sites. Our guide, Yin was very friendly and professional. We did not get to do the SkyTrain and did the underground metro train instead. The use of public transportation is a very good option because Bangkok's traffic is very congested. Our group of four elected to leave out the flower market. The restaurant that our guide took us to for an early lunch was incredible. Best food of all our time in Bangkok. There is quite a bit of walking on this tour but you do take tuk tuks in some places. The Jim Thompson tour and the temples are really worth seeing. The temples are really crowded but absolutely worth seeing. Our guide also pointed out good shopping spots which was really great. I don't think this tour needs to start at 8am though. 9am would be fine.
