On this private 8-hour guided tour, I will show you the former royal buildings of the Chakri kings and the beautiful Wat Phra Kaew. After that the holiest temple of Thailand called Wat Pho temple. This is the largest temple in Bangkok and famous for its huge and majestic reclining Buddha. After lunch at a local restaurant, it's time to discover the real Thai life by boat and cruise through the canals, or 'klongs', for about 1 hour. After the tour we will drop you off again at the port.

A Recent Review of this tour

We are so lucky to find a guide like Benjaporn! Professional, caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable; everything one wants in a guide. Ben crafted a well-scheduled tour for us to see so much of Bangkok, enjoy a delightful lunch, take a canal tour - amazing how she fit everything in during the time. Her English is excellent as is her knowledge of the history and current state of Bangkok. Ben's driver is wonderful as well. Words do not do Ben justice; we are truly lucky to find her; we highly recommend her!
