This tour is a must try, the tour guide was so nice and she even accompany us to the Jewelry Factory per our request after the tour and waited for us to make sure that we get back in the hotel safe.
The market is one of a kind, my husband enjoyed shopping because the prices were so reasonable. Highly recommended.

Great tour. Worth the extra for a private tour, especially the day I went because it was so busy. The guide and driver also went off script and added an additional stop at an elephant pavilion.

I met my tour guide at City Park Hotel about 30 min from my hotel at 7am. I had to leave my place at 5:30am to avoid traffic. Then we drove about an hour outside of Bangkok, stop at Safari Park, where I was able to pet a tiger and say Hello to Burmese women with long necks stretched by metal rings. Then we headed to Floating Markets: what an experience it looks like a chaos, because so many boats are going around in a confined space/channels power boats more aggressive and big kayaks powered by paddles. It is a unique place, you won't see anywhere else. It was definitely worth it.

We had a wonderful time on this private tour. Jeerawat was an excellent guide with a good command of English. He was happy to show us what we wanted to see and we ended the tour feeling we got more than our money's worth. Pro tip: Definitely opt for a private paddle boat once at the market. It is worth the extra baht.

Our guide spoke excellent English and as this was a private tour we saw the elephant camp as well as a stop at the coconut sugar factory (toilets were very basic!) We had a speedboat to the market pier and longboat on the canal (extra £), very busy but an amazing experience, be prepared to haggle!

This tour was excellent. Our guide Luck was really knowledgeable and her English was very good. We visited a coconut farm and were amazed at the range of goods that were made from coconuts.
The trip around the floating markets was a real eyeopener.
All in all the trip was well worth it.

Tour guide was really nice. Fantastic English. Loved the markets. It was really busy when we got there so we did them by foot. The boat trip there was fun.

This was a fun trip. It's about 1.5 hours from Bangkok but it was really a lot of fun. Van to fun boat ride into the floating markets. They you walk this large market. Come prepared to negotiate. They expect it. The asking price is always high and you work it down. Enjoy that cultural experience. They sell everything. Don't buy from the first vendor. The second will probably sell you same thing cheaper. Our favorite number become 150 bhat. Our tour guide and driver were helpful. They would good and pointing us in the right direction and allowing us to explore. This is a once in a lifetime experience. Don't miss this experience.

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide Olivia was at the hotels lobby on time with private car. During our trip to floating market she gave us information and data about Thailand and things we were watching thru window of the car, like salt fields, architecture... On the way to floating market we did two stops. One at place that concentrate some of the touristic offer that Thailand brings. Something like a park where you can ride an elephant, see long neck village people, aligators, etc. We rapidly skip this stop to the following which was really interesting. A local museum that is a family house who has a sugar cane fields and process them. Teh family open the hous to tourists and offer a free thai food to taste fish, soup, rice, vegetables, legumes.. It was very taste I recomend this stop. Besides the family has a gift shop with some artisans wood work that you can see in the market at a higher prices. After this visit we went to floating market taking a long tali speedboat at less crowdy port addressing to the Damnoen Saduak thru several waterways. The floating market is an interesting place where you can see food offering form boats in the waterways and on the both side of the waterways several shops offering clothes, souvenir, foods, etc.

This trip was really great because of Shannon. Highly recommend him. The drive from Bangkok does seem a bit long but Shannon entertains you the whole way and gave us terrific suggestions regarding things to do in Thailand. There's a great boat ride into the floating markets which is a very interesting way to approach the market as opposed to by car. Shannon made sure we experienced the market visually by taking us on a very complete walk through both sides - getting us snacks and suggesting experiences we may have overlooked. Make sure you do the boat ride through the market itself - even if you have no intention in purchasing anything the boat ride is the highlight of the market itself. P.S. if you are a foodie and watch Anthony Bourdain the vendor who makes the noodles still is there. We didn't have the noodles because we had just finished huge coconut ice cream sundaes - but if you find a coffee/ice cream shop if your on the bridge overlooking the market facing the main parking lot its on your left the soup/noodle lady is behind the store. Look for cement stools - permanent tables and a lot of locals.

On our drive to the floating markets, our tour guide, Krit, was very knowledgeable about the history of Thailand and made sure that before we purchased anything...bargain, bargain, bargain! Very enlightening experience at the markets!

Must see for everyone. The tour was well organized. We were picked up on time at our hotel. The tour guide was extremely friendly. Highly recommend it. Be prepared to pay double price for all items here, but its worth it considering that some unique items can be found here like bags that you don't get elsewhere in Bangkok.

Our tour of the Damnoen Saduak Floating Markets with Pearl was fabulous. We had a wonderful time and Pearl was knowledgeable and very fluent in English. Not only did she provide us with information throughout our trip, but she also gave us insider tips for the rest of our day to help us see everything we wanted as quickly as possible as we only had one day to spend in Bangkok. There was a lot of time spent in travel, but Pearl filled that time by answering our questions and giving us lots of new knowledge!

This was a great experience. Early pick up from the doorstep of the hotel a approx 1hr drive to the location. Coconut farm stop on the way which was good then the markets. The long boat experience was brilliant and it was great having the private option just for the four of us. We would highly recommend the add on option of the row boat in the markets 150thb extra per person as this was the highlight! Otherwise you are just walking above the markets instead of being immersed with the boats. Brilliant experience and highlight of our Bangkok trip :-

Collected at 0700 in a nice van pleanty of room for 4 adults, guide and driver
On the way we stopped off at a sugar palm plantation/orhid farm as its a pvt tour we didnt have to but we did for a quick look round toilet break and drink for 20 to 30 mins
Its then only about 20 mins further until you get dropped off for your long tail boat ride to the market this was very enjoyable and you could see how people live by the canals
Once at the market you have about an hour to look around and you can pay extra to be paddled around the market in another small boat we didn't do this but could still buy food etc that they cook on the boats from the shore with things being passed up and about on the paddles there are also a load of stalls on land to walk about
Yes the market is geared up for tourist but it is still busy and enjoyable
We got back to Bangkok at about 1300 and asked to be dropped off at the palace instead of the hotel so we could carry straight on sightseeing and this was no problem all in all a very enjoyable trip and one I would recommend to friends and family

My favorite excursion of my month long trip! After a few brief driver inspired stops he was aware of when we wanted to leave each location and was very respectful of that, we arrived at the canal that would lead us to the markets. The whole experience was amazing, but, for me, the only way to truly appreciate the markets is to take the additional boat ride. The first boat leads you to aisles of souvenirs and such that are set up in a permanent area, like a small flea market. I wanted to be going through the narrow passageways and experience what it was like from the water side of things. The price for the extra ride may vary mine was 600 Baht for a private boat, but quite worth it. Sellers rowed up to me and were offering a variety of items there were also permanent stands set up on the sides and I could be rowed over to them to examine their items more closely. That trip lasted between 20-30 minutes. I wanted to go back even before I left and would definitely do it again.
