We did a day tour around the palace and the temples around it. Do not hesitate to make this visit, we had a great time. I found the price high, but it was worth every Baths paid. our guide (Ah) punctuated the visit with fascinating anecdotes between 2 historical explanations of the different places visited. During the trip, he told us the history of the districts crossed and their position in the city. The trip by local transport (train, bus, metro) was very comfortable and our guide picked us up and brought us back to our hotel lobby.

Alive/Alisa was my tour guide and she was excellent! We got to experience many forms of transportation here in Bangkok such as the sky train, tuk tuk, and boat thru the river and canals of chao phraya! We were able to visit all the famous temples and spent adequate time at each one! We got many memorable pics. She took us a the navy club restaurant where I absolutely loved every dish we ordered! Highly recommend this tour experience!
