The tour was very well run and enjoyable, however there were two problems.
1. The confirmation email requested that I phone a Bangkok number to confirm hotel pick-up. Upon calling the listed number the person answering the phone did not know anything about the tour. Another email gave an USA phone number to call if there were any problems.
I replied to the confirmation email pointing out this problem but, as yet, have not received a reply.
2. The tour information states: '... on this 4-hour sightseeing tour by water' and 'Drift quietly along the Chao Phraya River as the sun sets over Bangkok'. The tour started at 2:30pm and finished at 4:30pm 2 hours not 4 hours. We certainly did not see any 'sunset'.
Great tour. Interesting to see Bangkok from the river
An excellent way to see the canal environs of this very eclectically build megacity.
Enjoyed the ride and sites, fruit treats aNd service great, just wish the guides English was a little better
.was reasonably good except majority of people could not understand the guide whose English needed to be much better. The ladies with me were disappointed and several others expressed there disappointment. Van driver drove extremely erratic.
Tour guide wasnt courteous at all. At few instances, we felt she was quite rude in fact.
Firstly her accent wasnt quite clear. When we asked her to speak clearly or slowly, she just rudely replied, if you are unable to hear, go behind and sit. Is she my teacher or something? I have interacted with many tour guides, but no one this rude or disinterested. Also, she seemed to be more interested in interacting only with the other couple on the tour and not once do we remember her making an effort to interact with us, though we were 3 adults on the tour.
However the positive of this tour, was the cruise was quite nice and enjoyed the variety of fruits available. If for a better tour guide I think we would have had a pleasant experience. Also, you need to do something about the volume of the speaker system.
Trip was not as long as advertised was only 2 hours long in total. They only take you a short distance down one canal before turning around to head back to the main river. Very disappointing.
