Bangkok in one day
, Dec 2021
We received everything frommthis tour what we expected…we visited all of the Bangkok attractions such as the Grand Palace, Chinatown, flower market, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Wat Traimit, Wat Phra Chetuphon, Wat Phra Kaew and the Bangkok canals with a longboat. A wonderful day with a really helpful, lovely guide and a great driver…we never rushed but at the end we were exhausted cause walking in the sun ist not as easy as thought for ist bestrafest. Strongly recommended.
Presha (Peter) a Wonderful Guide
, Mar 2020
Presha (Peter) was a wonderful guide. His English was very fluent. Presha was gracious, friendly and knowledgeable. He adapted our itinerary to our pace and interests. We saw all the highlights we wanted to see in beautiful Bangkok. Our driver was professional and safely navigated the busy streets.

One Busy Day
, Feb 2020
This tour was perfect for the person with one day to see this amazing city. Our guide Peter was knowledgeable: he taught us the history of Thailand that put the Temples and sites we saw into perspective. His discussions of Buddhism were superb, and gave insight into the culture we were experiencing, as well as his presentations of the succession of the Royal family, and transition in government. We could not recommend this tour highly enough. One must mote- we covered a lot of ground, mostly on foot (there are choices to drive a little more, but walking is the way to go- a lot faster (traffic) and better experience. We were fortunate to be the only couple on the tour which allowed a lot of personalization. Recommend spending the extra money if there is a choice to go truly privately.
Best of Bangkok
, Feb 2020
This tour did not disappoint us not only because of the sites we visited and enjoyed but because of having an excellent guide. Airy is a very knowledgeable, courteous and polite guide. He was always going out of his way to satisfy each question or concern. He is definitely a standard each guide should be measured.

Great option for the active, for those on a short layover, or as an introduction to Bangkok!
, Feb 2020
The only reason I give this a 4 star rating instead of 5 is that it felt like we needed a week to cover what we covered in a day! This tour is not for the tired or inactive! My partner had mobility issues, and was utterly exhausted and had to stay in the vehicle toward the end - we were so tired we decided to skip the flower market and go right back to our hotel at the end. But our tour guide Tai was a fearless leader - even in the hordes of New Years visitor we had to wade through at each site. We could never have done it without her and having a private driver. If you are here for a layover and want to see as much as possible in one day, this is truly the way to do it! We hit all the main tourist sites of Bangkok - three main Wats, the Palace, a canal tour, lunch - in a day. I could have easily spent a day at each - particularly as a photographer. Another way this tour can be helpful is to introduce you to the sites you may want to revisit and spend more time on later. We were so thankful to have a private tour - the price is well worth it and in the end the experience far enhanced over a large group tour. We were glad we weren't trying to follow a leader with a stick in the air, but instead had a guide and source of great information there for our needs and interests. Want to see everything in a day? Put on your running shoes, get a good night's sleep, and do the Bangkok marathon and be amazed!
Cannot imaging doing more in a single day. Guide was amazing.

Cannot say enough good things about our private tour with Preecha. He efficiently moved us through the city to see an amazing number of things in a single day. One needs to be prepared to walk a bit, but it is well rewarded. Preecha is very knowledgable and passionate about seeing that we got a good overview. Quick to answer our questions. Broke the day up with a lunch is a small typical Bangkok restaurant. We give our highest recommendation for this tour.
A loooooong day!

A very nice tour. Was way to long.....almost 10 hours. You have to stand in line for a very long time to get in to the temples.
We didn't get the full tour we paid for
, Dec 2019
This was one of the most expensive of all the tours in Bangkok and we were very disappointed because we did not have the full tour we paid for which was meant to include the following itinerary which were cancelled part way through the tour: Bangkok Canal, Khlong Saen Saep, Bangkok Thailand Board on a motorized long-tailed boat to enjoy the scenery along the river banks and small canals of the Chao Phraya River, which once gave the name “ Venice of the East” to Bangkok. Duration: 1 hour Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), 34 Wang Doem Road Wat Arun, Bang Kok Yai, Bangkok 10600 Thailand Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn, the major riverside landmark of Bangkok with a magnificent pagoda that soars some 280 feet into the sky. Embark the boat and transfer by car back to the hotel. Duration: 1 hour We were only informed on the day, once the tour had already started, that the river was closed to all traffic and therefore we could not have the boat trip as expected, and therefore could not visit Wat Arun either. For us, one of the main highlights of this tour was going to be the boat trip.There were cheaper tours we could have taken that didn't include the boat trip - but we chose this particular tour BECAUSE it included a boat trip through the canals. So it was not fair to pay for something we did not have, and were not offered an alternative or any refund. The tour guide, Tess, was truly wonderful and did her best to make it an enjoyable tour, but it was quite wrong for the operator to charge us for a major part of the tour that we did not receive. We requested to stop the tour at the end of the morning and skip lunch altogether in favour of taking the boat trip the following afternoon (which was our only remaining chance), but were very disappointed that the tour operator would not agree to do this, or refund any part of the cost.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2019
We feel sorry that you did not get to experience the Canal tour. However, we do not understand the basis of your review. You were offered alternatives, and given exclusive lunch at Traditional Thai Restaurant by the riverside and spectate the rehearsal of the Royal Ceremony. We do not gain any extra penny from you, and all the cost was used during the tour. Our guide explained to us about how you were happy and showing appreciation; these complaints and refund requests came to her as a surprise.
Excellent Private Tour with Peter
, Nov 2019
Peter picked us up at our hotel and led us on the most fabulous tour of Bangkok imaginable. He took us to many places we never would have seen on our own and described every site in a way that brought them to life. It's evident Peter loves Bangkok and really enjoys sharing what he knows. Thanks, Peter, for a wonderful day and thanks for the many photos you took of us to remember the places you showed us forever.
Excellent tour guide, Peter.
, Nov 2019
The tour was well organized. Our tour guid Peter was excellent in explaining to us the history of each area we visited. The van was clean and the driver was very polite. I would recommend this private tour to any one who has shot time to visit Bangkok.
