What to Expect

08:00
Get up a little early and meet your guide at the hotel lobby after breakfast. Prepare yourself for the full-day tour to the must-see landmarks of Bangkok. On this day, you will get to know the city by exploring markets, temples and cruising along the canal. On this tour, you will visit:
Temple of Golden Buddha, Wat Traimit
Our first stop is at Wat Traimit. Standing at the end of Yaowarat road, this temple is famous for the Buddha it houses, The Golden Buddha. This massive Buddha statue measuring 5.5 tons is made from solid gold since the 14th Century. It is so valuable that it has to be covered with a layer of plaster and concrete to hide its real value during the time of war
Chinatown, Yaowarat
Renown to be the busiest area in the city, Chinatown has everything a person needs all in one place. Take a walk in the old market and explore fascinating products from shophouses to street food carts.
Flower Market, Pak Khlong Talat
Discover the flower market that runs almost 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The impressive variety of local and imported cut flowers, leaves, orchids, tropical plants are on offer from early morning till late at night. The most interesting are also fresh flower arrangements for all purposes such as flower garlands, wedding bouquets, and wreaths.
Temple of Reclining Buddha
Witness the massive Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, one of the most important Temple in Bangkok. On top of housing the largest Reclining Buddha, the temple is also famous for being the leading school for Thai traditional massage
Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha
Bangkok’s major landmark, which was built in 1782 by King Rama I. Each building of the complex is a work of arts including the royal chapel of Temple of the Emerald Buddha – which houses Thailand’s most revered Buddha Image. Only visitors in proper attire are allowed for entry.
Bangkok Canal
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. During the boat trip, stop at the royal temple Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn.
Temple of Dawn, Wat Arun
Wat Arun is a significant landmark located by the side of the Chao Phraya river. With a magnificent pagoda that soars some 280 feet into the sky, this beautiful temple will charms you day and night. Walk around the temple and get the scenic view of the Chao Phraya river at the top of the Prang.
16:30
Transfer back to the hotel.

    Ein perfekter Tag!
    "Der Name ist Programm! Es war einfach alles perfekt. Wir wurden pünktlich im Hotel abgeholt und alle Sehenswürdigkeiten konnten besichtigt werden. Für die ganze Tour war ein Fahrer dabei der uns immer abholte, egal wo wir gerade waren. Die vielen zusätzlichen Informationen die wir von unserem Guide (Mr. Suwatehai) erhalten haben, rundeten das Erlebnis positiv ab. Sehr schön war es natürlich, dass unser Guide so gut Deutsch sprach.
    Wir können diese Tour jedem empfehlen, der Bangkok in kurzer Zeit erleben möchte !!!"Read on TripAdvisor

    Touring with Toon was AMAZING!!!
    "This was by far the highlight of our time in Bangkok! My sister and I couldn’t be happier with our tour we had with Toon. She was friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable as she guided us through her home-city of Bangkok. Toon having been born and raised in this city allowed for more insight and opportunity to learn more about the culture as we explored places of the city locals know and love. Toon was so kind, answered our many questions, and was quite the professional photographer! I can not recommend this tour enough, and if you are able to request Toon, I promise this tour will offer memories to last a lifetime!" Read on TripAdvisor

    So Worth It
    "Hope that you get Peter, he is very well spoken and his English easy to understand. This was by far one of our most favorite tours from our trips around the world. I could not recommend our tour guide enough.

    He is very knowledgeable on his culture and the history of this majestic kingdom.

    Most importantly, He made sure that we were always in the shade, he ensured we had plenty of pictures to take home for memories, helped my extremely particular wife find food to eat, and always ensured we were hydrated and comfortable." Read on TripAdvisor

    Private day tour of Bangkok
    "Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgable. We visited all of the main sights of Bangkok efficiently in one day. The tour started with the canal ride. It lasted about 40 minutes which was too long for our tastes. Ten minutes would have been plenty. So going straight from our hotel to the Temple of Dawn in the main canal would have been perfect. The tour was a walking tour in the morning. We visited most of the main temples. After lunch we were transported by air conditioned vehicle as the sights were further apart. I suggest wearing shoes that are easy to take on and off as you have to remove your shoes in the temples. The lunch was good and air conditioned. A very efficient way to see the city if you are short on time. Would recommend." Read on TripAdvisor

    Bangkok tour
    "Our guide named “Toon” was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable about the landmarks we visited in Bangkok. We were a group of 6, that included 3 kids. “Toon” gave us a comprehensive overview of the seminal temples and current bustling commercial district/cultural centers. We packed in a lot of sights during our full day tour and finished more edified about Bangkok. I highly recommend her and welcome her to guide us again, should we schedule another tour in the future. Thanks, “Toon!”" Read on TripAdvisor

    EXCELLENT IN A DAY BANGKOK TOUR
    "Excellent tour, we highly recommend this tour and guide to anyone! Everything was perfectly organized. Thanks to our tour guide – Snake, he took care of us throughout the tour to ensure that we were hydrated at all times and comfortable in the extreme heat, as the weather was very hot and humid.
    Snake is very knowledgeable of all of the temples, sights and history; he can explain things in depth and provide lots of information not only about the history, but current lifestyle of Bangkok too.
    Snake was a friendly guide, we did not get rushed throughout the tour but instead he offered to take many pictures of us and knew the best sports to take pictures at every place we went.
    Not only we had a wonderful tour guide we also had an excellent driver. Thank you both for a brilliant day and for making sure we were able to enjoy every minute of our tour." Read on TripAdvisor

    Worth EVERY penny!
    "What an amazing tour and what an amazing day! Emmy, our guide was knowledgeable and provided one of the best days seeing ALL the sites in Bangkok. She helped us navigate through the very crowded (and extremely hot) temples and palaces. She knew ALL the best photo spots and was patient when we wanted to explore a little. The benefit of being in a private group is that you don't have to wait for anyone else and you get personalized service. Emmy was able to answer all of our questions and it was lovely getting to know her as well. I would recommend this tour to everyone!" Read on TripAdvisor

    Excellent way to see what Bangkok has to offer.
    "Snake (Jiraphong) was an extremely knowledgeable guide who made our first day in Bangkok very memorable.

    Taken around the Grand Palace, Temple of the Dawn and Temple of the Reclining Buddha, he told us so much about Thai history, the Buddhist religion and local culture.

    We really enjoyed the canal boat ride, and tour of the flower market and Chinatown.

    One of the best bits of the day was the food. For the walking food tour, Jiraphong chose some local dishes based on our preferences which we definitely wouldn't have tried on our own.

    He recommended some lovely dishes for the lunch as well, giving us a great taste of local thai cuisine.

    Even in the heat of the day, Jiraphong made sure we were comfortable and well hydrated, and ciuld not have done more for us.

    Would definitely recommend, doing as a couple or small group, as the whole day was sorted for start to finish, with a very personalised service.

    Thank you so much!" Read on TripAdvisor

    Mehr "guided" wäre gut gewesen.
    "Wir hatten einen Tag Zeit um uns die "must see´s" anzuschauen. Ich habe das alles vor Jahren schon mal auf eigene Faust gemacht - hatte diesmal mit neuer Partnerin aber keine Lust mich um alles zu kümmern und hatte auch die Hoffnung ein paar interessante Dinge über die Sehenswürdigkeiten zu erfahren die man alleine nicht bekommt. Die Tour begann pünktlich mit der Abholung bei uns am Hotel. Super freundliche Begrüßung, tolles Auto, gepflegter Fahrer und Guide. 8-16 Uhr dauert der Spaß. Fazit für uns : für Leute die sich um nichts kümmern wollen und komfortabel, sicher und entspannt Sightseeing machen wollen - und denen der letzte Euro nicht wichtig ist - genau das richtige. Zu bemängeln haben wir leider den Guide - und damit für uns einen elementaren Punkt. Es gab fast keine Hintergründe, nur ganz wenige Infos zu den besichtigten Stationen. Daher leider nur ein Befriedigend von uns."Read on TripAdvisor
