Great way to see three temples efficiently
Vanchai (our tour guide) was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. He was prompt for pick up and the tour schedule went as expected. The air conditioned car, drop off to each temple, and private guide are worth the value of purchase.

Private Tour with not much information
Jan 2020 • Couples
We took this private tour, but we got very little information from our tour guide as to the sites we were visiting. When I asked questions, I got very high level answers. I have had private tours that were much better than this one. The tour guide was very strict with the rules in the temples and even went around scolding random visitors at the sites. I can not say this was very memorable.

Temple Tour
This was a well organised tour with a hotel pick up/drop off option. This private tour includes the price of tickets for all the temples and an air conditioned vehicle which was much needed in the heat!
Our tour guide, Panya, was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own too! Highly recommend this tour

Private temple tour
Great and efficient tour of the must see temples in Bangkok. Pearl was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide and gave us all good insights in both Thai history, culture and Buddhism.
A very hot day, but we were lucky as we had booked the early tour. Pickup and drop off at our hotel worked perfectly.

Dec 2019 • Couples
Private tour with hotel pick up. Our guide Pearl was lovely and very knowledgable, she was very accommodating to help us with the heat. Pearl arrived on time, gave lots of advice and helped take photos of us. Also recommend the morning tour - we arrived at the Grand Palace when it first opened and it was very, very busy. Thank you, Pearl!
