Terrible - Waste of Time and Money!!
Aug 2019
This is the most awful trip/tour I have ever taken. There was something happening at one of the temples/palaces on the day we had booked which meant that we were not shown any of the sights promised. Rather than cancel this tour or at least inform us beforehand that we were not being shown the sights/landmarks advertised, the tour went ahead. All the 2 guides spoke about were the hotels and condos along the river. . How long they had been built and other drivel! The trip down the filthy canal was awful. Not sure why a city would want to show the worst of its sights.To add insult to injury, the journey back to our hotel took 2 and a half hours which made us late for that evenings dinner reservation.

Really enjoyable mini cruise, to see the sights from the water and fabulous fruit buffet on the boat. Was a bit difficult to hear the commentary over the noise of the engine

Disappointing
I never usually leave bad review on social media as I feel everyone has different opinions. In this case I feel is different, I booked this tour late one evening for the following day at 1.30 pm . Next day we waited in the hotel to be picked up and no bus arrived. I called the tour operator to be told could we booked for the following day as we booked late the previous night. We were leaving Bangkok the next day so this was not possible. He said I would have to contact trip advisor to cancel this and I would receive my money back as I had paid this online by visa. I contacted trip advisor by email to be told it was an automated email. I email the tour operator by email twice on separate days once someone replied asking for my booking ref which I sent but since then I have heard nothing. I am very disappointed and also been charged for a trip that I did not go on .

See another side of Bangkok life
Jan 2019 • Couples
Absolutely fascinating afternoon cruising down the river and through the canals where people live right over the water. Our knowledgeable guide Pu and her charming Papa made this a very interesting trip, pointing out many sights and explaining each one to us. Feed the river fish for good luck and prosperity and see another side of life in Bangkok as well as the best view of all the famous landmarks. Highly recommended.
