Our first stop is Wat Traimit, the Golden Buddha Temple - an incredible sight to behold and one of the can't miss things to do in Bangkok.

OMG! Soooo much fun. Tommy and Gita were awesome guides. They took us on the wildest and craziest ride that will forever be talked about with our friends. The tiny alley ways and stops at historical places was great. We got to see parts of the city that no one else will see on a routine tour. Highly recommend this trip!! Even our teenage son had a blast! Ten stars!!! We would love to get the photos that Gita took! Please email them

It was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend as we were able to see so much from the city and the guide was also excellent. For me this was one of the best ways to discover Bangkok, especially when you don’t have that much time in the city.

It was incredible to see the culture of Thailand and to see all the markets. The tour guide Jacky was excellent, very informative and friendly. Very good experience.

the absolute best way to get the sounds, sights, smells and taste of Bangkok. Wonderfully guided by Nine. Top evening in this city.
