Our guide was very good with his explanation of this tradition, how to approach the monks, and what kind of offerings are made. It was a very full tour done professional and with an eye on educating us about the history, religion and present day issues of Bangkok and Thailand.
This tour was amazing!
Really good trip with an enthusiastic guide.

Very good tour. I give the tour four stars but I would only give the tour guide three stars. I thought it unprofessional that she was reading her email, taking photographs and purchasing food for diner during our tour.
Morning Buddhist Almsgiving happened at marble temple - many vendors approaching to sell fish and items. Local arrive to give the alms, happened at street level so was not a solemn experience that I expected.
Flower market - guide explained one side is local and another imported flowers. Showed sample flowers used in temple offerings. Overall ok experience - no beggars approached to ask money. Place was wet so best to use rubber or covered shoes to avoid getting muddied.
Grand palace tour - arrived early, hundred of Chinese tourists made the whole place and experience unpleasant. The actual structures are very interesting but I did not understand what the guide said or she could not give her orientation because the Chinese were shouting, shoving and crowding the structure or item being explained. IT WAS THE MOST HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE I have had in a spiritual site.
UPSET - our notice said pick up at 5:30am, tour guide arrive at 6am showed me her job order. We were both right and punctual but the person who gave us time references made the mistake. This is very unprofessional.

The tour guide wasn't as well informed as I would have liked.
started at 6am and we finished the morning buddhist almsgiving at 7am, and we didd not have anything to do till 8:45 since grand palace opens late. Waste of time.
aumône bouddhiste le matin : 2minutes 30 sur place, apres 45 minutes de voyage
nous qui nous faisions une joie de voir et attendions ce jour avec impatience , Exclusivité Viator est une catastrophe bien organisée, meme pas la possiblite 15 minutes
le seul souci du guide etait de parler au chauffeur et de nous jetter de temps en temps des cacahuettes pas aux boubdhistes mais a nous pour expliquer en 2 mots
marché aux fleurs de Bangkok :
2 allée a parcourir 30 metres d'un cote et 30 metres de l' autre, 25 minutes
expliqucation du guide du a notre étonnement depuis 1 an a été transferée de la rue a l' interieur du quartier et que ce n' est plus interessant rien a voir !
Apres lui avoir dit notre mecontentement et vu l' ambiance nous avons demande a etre raccompagne a l' hotel.
