Know More about this tour

Built in traditional Thai architecture mixed with European designs, The Grand palace complex, once the official home for the Kings of Siam, is unquestionably one of the Thailand's major tourist highlights. The King still uses the Grand palace for certain ceremonial occasions and the regal flavor within its enormous royal grounds is still evident. During the tour you will visit the Royal Funeral Hall and the Royal Coronation Hall. You will have 90-minutes to spend at the Grand palace.

The main centerpiece of the complex however is the 45 centimeter Emerald Buddha. Carved from just one piece of Jade it is the holiest and most revered religious object in Thailand. The Emerald Buddha is housed within Wat phra kaew, which is a very ornately decorated building whose roof tiles reach up into the sky.

Your tour will conclude at the Gems Gallery.

    Only the front of the Grand Palace can be viewed from a distance. The Wat Phra Kaew can be very crowded with multiple tour groups if you don't go early in the morning. The Viator guide did an excellent job because I happened to be the only person in the group.

    Our tour guide arrived early at our Hotel. He was supposed to be at the hotel by 7:30 but as early as 6:30 he was already on the hotel lobby. So up and we go as we pick up another couple at a nearby hotel and there we go to our destination The Grand Palace Tour. On our way Vichai our guide tell us the storied origin of the Grand Palaces. from the time of King Rama I up to the reigning King Rama 10. Overall we have a grand time for this tour as Vichai gamely answer all our querries about the site. We will surely return and this time with our kids in tow. Thank you.

    The grand palace complex was very beautiful but very crowded. You don’t get to go inside the palace. Tour guide didn’t speak great English, but she did her best. If you’re limited on time and want to see a lot in one day, this would not be the tour for you. It was only the complex.

    I will not give any stars for this tour. I absolutely hated this tour. The guide had heavy accent and were not answering our question, probably was not able to understand. They were changing cars at every location we were stopped and were very annoying. We had to wait for driver in the car, after I asked many times what's taking so long, i am here to sit in the car and paid so much money...they were just not nice and chit chatting outside without communicating to us that whats taking long. Tour guide will disappear here and there. She will tell us I will see you in the lobby when you are done, but when we get there, we had to wait for her. I am never booking any tours from this site again. Hence NO STARS

    Fantastic tour guide and wonderful tour. Money well spent.

    Our guide was ok. Not a lot of information about the actual sites. We could have purchased tickets on our own and walked around. This is a beautiful site and definitely worth seeing! Next time I visit, it will be on my own, however.

    This was a really good tour, the guide was very informative and easy to understand and the palace was beautiful.

    So disappointed with this tour. Our guide seemed totally disinterested and didn’t give us much info on what we were seeing. But what really bothered me was that they took us 45 min out of our way on the way home to a horrible touristy gem shop, one of those huge tour bus stops.

    Nice tour guide very informative.

    Palace itself was great, even though it was over 30 degrees. The tour only gets 3 stars because the tour shuttle and the guide were only so so. It took ages from the hotel to the palace and back and the tour guide was not friendly at all.
