There is so much beauty on this tour and my guide did a good job of teaching us the basics of the temples we visited. It was really too much information to absorb at the time, so I focused on getting some great photographs and will do some research later to put everything I saw into perspective. This small group tour mine had 7 adults and 2 kids was a great way to see all of these attractions in a short period of time. Be sure to dress modestly for entering the temples, and expect to remove your shoes.

Highly recommend for a solo traveler with limited time to tour around Bangkok. Tour was very comfortable. Availed the morning Grand Palace tour with this. Was sent back to my preferred drop-off place after the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

This tour was amazing. I can tell you about the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, but until you experience it yourself, I cannot do it justice. A solid gold Buddha the equivalent of a city block is just beyond words to describe. Just amazing! The Marble Temple was really pretty and I liked how my guide showed me the proper way to give alms to the monks and pray. The Golden Buddha was in Bangkok's Chinatown and it was interesting seeing a different artistic interpretation of the Buddha. Tour guide was great imparting knowledge of Buddhist and Thai history and culture. If you do only one your in Bangkok make it this one!
