Half-Day Grand Palace, Wat Pho & Wat Arun Tour

★★★★★★★★★★

Amazing guide!

Boat was fantastic. His knowledge of the place and friendliness were the best we’ve seen in four tours (and he has stiff competition).

He told us the history of the grand palace as we expected, but also answered all our oddball questions. At the end of the tour we asked to be dropped off in Chinatown. He not only brought us, he recommended some places to go. He even followed up after the tour to recommend other places to visit while in Bangkok.

It was great to spend the day with Boat and learn all about Bangkok’s palace and temples.

Boat is excellent tour guide. We loved our trip it was hot busy Saturday night but he tried hard to find a food that match our pallet. His recommendation was very nice.
