このバンコクの運河（現地ではクロンと呼ばれています）を行く観光ツアーでは、チャオ プラヤ川をモーター付きボートで移動し、水路沿いに点在する静かな民家や寺院を見学します。この街並みから、バンコクは「東洋のベネチア」と呼ばれています。 これらのバンコク中を流れる運河は、商品の輸送（特に田んぼへの米の運搬）などの、日常の仕事で往来する多くの地元のタイ人に自然の高速道路として利用されています。
Great trip with a fantastic tour guide. Khun Yelly was very knowledgable and incredibly sweet. She knew all of the good spots for photos, and even took time to teach our kids about everything, to include folding the lotus flowers for offerings. This tour included all of the highlights, and Yelly's expertise helped us navigate the temple entrances with ease. So much better than trying to do it ourselves. And glad we went in the morning, before it got too hot.
Have taken the tours with Viator while in Italy and this one was as expected, great guide and pickup and dropoff was easy. It was nice to have a personal guide going through the Grand Palace. He stood in line to purchase both tickets to each venue and was very informative. The canal cruise was a nice added touch to arriving at each of the venues. I would definitely recommend this tour. For the Grand Palace, check to make sure that there is no holiday the day after your tour, because they close the palace where the Emerald Buddha is located and we missed seeing it,
Tour was prima. Op tijd begonnen en alles gedaan wat op de lijst stond. Veel info gekregen maar aan het eind werden er bij een juwelier aan de andere kant van de stad afgezet - bedoeling wad om daar een rondleiding te krijgen en iets te kopen. Ze waren.niet pushy en je werd weer gratis afgezet bij een sloping mall maar de rit erheen en tour en weer vanaf shopping mall (waar we helemaal geen interesse in hadden) weer in oude centrum te komen heeft ons zeker 2 uur gekost. Jammer...
Well organized tour and guide was friendly and helpful, although a little more history into the palace tour may have been appreciated as once there we were left on our own to walk around. Only negative as ever was the visit to a gem factory at the end - total waste of time and unnecessary for our group who were not interested. Would have preferred the reclining buddha temple to be incorporated into this instead to make it perfect.
I had ascertained proper dress for this tour the day before. I was told that my arms and knees had to be covered. I had previously visited many temples so I knew that it was OK to wear a tunic without sleeves provided that I had a shawl to cover my arms for the visit. For the bottom I was told to wear long pants so since I was wearing a tunic, I wore leggings. Instead of greeting us upon our arrival, our guide began giving me heck about the way I was dressed. She said a shawl and leggings were totally unacceptable for the visit to the Grand Palace. She then went to talk to her guide colleagues, pointing at me and complaining - everyone was looking at me. I got so upset I told her to forget the Palace Visit and to just do the canal cruise. We enjoyed the canal cruise, but the encounter with the guide had totally soured our tour. We are also completely disappointed that we never did get to visit the Palace.
My friend and I purchased this tour and it was amazing. It was educational as well as scenic. We were able to experience areas on the canal where locals live and work. What an enlightening journey. My only wish was that we had a more time to spend at Wat Arun so that we could explore the entire premises. Nonetheless, our personal tour guide/ photographer voluntarily captured as many memories as requested. I am so glad to have booked this cruise.
