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.
