Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 122 reviews

Our tour guide, Mhom, was very knowledgeable and also had and excellent sense of humour we enjoyed. The Palace and temples we visited were not crowded due to COVID-19 and lack of Chinese tourists so we were able to take lots of photos of the amazing sites. The Thai food lunch was delicious. The longtail boat ride took us past the tallest Buddha which is under construction. Sadly construction is being delayed due to no exports coming from China currently. Mhoma assisted with directions for our return to our hotel and even accompanied us there, which was a welcome surprise. All in all- 5/5 and highly recommend to other travellers.

We had a super nice and friendly guide who cared about all our needs and has perfectly mastered a difficult skill of conversation. Great places to see, great memories to keep.

Very friendly guide (name: Mom) with extensive knowledge. She had the group "under control" without being intrusive.

The itinerary was good and our guide was good. We enjoyed the lunch and then the long tail boat ride through some canals.

Great experience- public transport without getting lost.
