We had read up about the tour and had a good idea of what we will see but we had no idea the Guide (Tiny) and the driver would be so great! The temples and the Reclining Buddha were beautiful and thanks to the guide (Tiny) we got a very good idea of the history associated with these. All in all it was a wonderful tour.

Yelena (i think the tour guide was called) was excellent. Our car driver didn’t show up, but this did not stop her from giving me an excellent tour, we took a taxi to the first stop, and she explained the history behind each site wonderfully! As this was a private tour and I was by myself, she also offered to take photos of me with each surroundings, and each photo was great!

This tour is a perfect option if you don’t want to get up early in the morning and don’t want to waste the whole day in Bangkok only on one tour.
