    It was a lot more exciting than we first thought. Great time getting to see a little of everything in Thailand. Day went by fast.

    Amazing tour. It really made our Bangkok trip. You see a lot in one day; so much so we decided to not see last temple. The restaurant we went for lunch was great as well. I liked that it was a private tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English well. I highly recommend the tour!

    We loved this tour!!! I had an 18 and 15 year old with me and this was by far their favorite tour. Our tour guide, Parichat (SP?) was amazing! She really knew how to interact with my kids and keep things fresh and interesting. Everything from the coconut farm, to the markets, lunch and temples was well organized. Gave us a great view of Bangkok. This is a tour that should be on your must do list.

    Excellent tour. Packed loads into a full day. Could not have seen all this if we had arranged it ourselves. Mr Moo was knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

    This tour was great. My wife and I learned more from our tour guide Tony during this tour than we could have imagined. We really enjoyed that we were able to see some real parts of Thailand that the normal tourist doesn't usually get to see like the train market and the inside of a traditional thai house. The floating market was absolutely amazing and Tony was great about showing us street food that tasted absolutely amazing. We also thought the temples were fantastic and again Tony was telling us about the history of the temples, Thailand, and Buddhism.

    Overall, the personal 1 on 1 attention from our tour guide was great especially when you see tour buses with about 50 guests and only 1 guide on some other tours. We were able to see ALOT of Bangkok's must see attractions with this tour and would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Bangkok.
