    This tour was very disappointing. For the price we paid it did not meet expectations.

    The visit to Wat Arun was boring and unnecessary - nothing to really see there. We drove 25 mins from our hotel to get there, spent 10 minutes walking around, and left. The guide didn't even bother to walk with us.

    The tour of the canals on the long-tail boat was great. It's what I had paid for and what I wanted to do. No complaints about that. My question is: Did I need to pay all of that money for just the boat tour, which in hindsight I could've booked myself? No.

    After the boat tour our driver picked us up and then got caught in traffic for 20 minutes - which to be fair wasn't his fault but annoying nonetheless. He then DROVE up Ratchadamnoen Rd and then proceeded to take us back to our hotel. We were supposed to do a brief walking tour of Ratchadamnoen Rd as per the tour description, but that didn't happen.

    So, while the boat tour was good, the rest of the tour was a waste of my time. I wouldn't recommend paying what this costs for what you actually get.
