My husband and I enjoyed the floating market tour that we did in Bangkok. Our tour guide was very helpful and kind. My only “complaint” is that I would have loved to have an additional hour or so at the market to explore. We felt rushed and didn’t get to enjoy ourselves as much as we would have had we had some additional time to browse. The market was a great experience though!

Minibus transportation was excellent. A very experienced driver and a great minibus. The guide Pat was excellent and ensured that this was a fantastic excursion. She told a lot of interesting facts both during the trip and on the spot .. The visit to the farm where we were given an explanation of how coconut sugar was made was interesting. The tour of the Thai home with explanation from the guide was interesting. Sailing the longtail boat to the floating market was a lot of fun. The floating market was fun to see and the food from the Thai dishes that were prepared by the locals in the Floating Boats tasted great. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning and brought back. The guide Pat and the driver were both top pigeons. Thanks!

Pleasant walk, even if tourism has unfortunately polluted the veracity of the market.
