    We had a fabulous few hours at the temples. Our tour guide was very informative and answered all our questions in perfect English. She also made it fun by giving us activities such as preparing offerings to Buddha. We would definitely recommend this trip and a tour guide is most recommended as without one we would have just been walking around aimlessly not knowing what we was looking at.

    A pesar de haber reservado el tour el día antes, supieron brindarnos una experiencia increíble. La guía que tuvimos fue muy atenta y amigable en todo momento dándonos explicaciones de los monumentos y la maravillosa cultura tailandesa. Hasta pudimos ver el Buda gigante del Wat Paknam desde el canal.

    The tour guide explanations in detail every thing. Amazing stuff! The driver was also safe and patient. The tour guide was very understanding about my dad being tired and was very helpful in suggesting where he can rest. She is very detailed and knowledgeable. I definitely will book other tours with them. Thank you for a great experience!

    Despite really looking forward to this trip, we were left disappointed. Especially having paid premium rate for a private tour with English speaking guide. The guide turned up on time as requested however, she had very limited English and was really difficult to understand. This was disappointing as we were desperate to get some narrative on customs and culture as well as seeing the sights. The temples we visited were really impressive and we enjoyed that aspect, although some background and history would have helped. The guide's English dramatically improved when we were persuaded to do her a favour and go to a 'shop' for a quick visit before heading back to the hotel. This turned out to be a gems factory with presentation and hard sell. Clearly she was on commission to bring us. Wouldn't use this company again.

    Incredibly smooth tour with lots of communication from operator from start to finish! I booked the trip midnight and received hotel pick up confirmation at this time to be scheduled for 8am the same day. They assisted with picking us up at our hotel and gave lots of history of the temples.

    This tour, and Mr Oat in particular, were incredible! Thorough, passionate, and eager to meet every expectation, Mr Oat ensured the experience was both informative and memorable. When in Bangkok, you must see the temples, and if you see the temples, you must see them with Mr. Oat!

    Our tour guide was well educated in history, the royal families, temples, Buddhas, and myth. Driver was good and a nice SUV.

    We spent 4 hours with our guide Oddi touring Grand Palace and major temples on a private tour. She was very knowledgeable about the culture, the sites, and the history. She kept the tour very engaging by allowing us to experience a few buddhist rituals such as laying lotus flowers, putting gold leaves and coins in the donation vessels. We learned a lot, and we highly recommend this tour to others.

    Pat was a wonderful tour guide, and this poor review shouldn’t take away from her efforts. But this touring company has terrible business practices with questionable ethics. We purchased a private group tour for my family of three, we were under the impression that it will only be us in the tour. Unfortunately, the day of the trip we received a message to state that we have been “upgraded” to a van and an additional two person will be joining. Normally we aren’t opposed to group tour but it wasn’t what we purchased. They offer to take 15USD off the original purchase price which will not equate to the price of a group tour from another company. We will never use them nor recommend any of my friends or family who intended to visit Thailand. Unfortunately these actions will be the downfall of this country. No one expects to go on vacation to be taken advantage off.

    It was a wonderful day touring the palace and grounds. Noka was a wonderful guide whose knowledge of the history of Thailand and Buddhism was greatly appreciated. The heat was oppressive but a fan and plenty of fluids helped.
