The Best of Bangkok: Temples and Long Boat Tour with Lunch was the perfect tour for my first full day in the city. Ms. Aom was a wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable guide. Not only did she provide a personalized tour of all three major royal temple complexes, but she was full of information about the history of Thailand, the royal family, and the city of Bangkok. As a first-time visitor to the city, having a local guide to help navigate through the complex systems of transportation and commerce was comforting and educational. This tour provided a perfect mix of activities - from temples, to local food, to long-boat experiences on the Chao Phraya. Everything was well-organized and well-timed. I wouldn't change a thing. Highly recommend!
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.
What a lovely day with Mhom as our guide. It was hot and crowded but she handled it all with calm humor. The sights were amazing. The only suggestion we have is to stop for lunch sooner in the day.
Well worth the price - our guide was really skilled in getting us through the masses of other tourists, and we especially enjoyed the long-tail boat tour.
The itinerary was good and our guide was good. We enjoyed the lunch and then the long tail boat ride through some canals.
