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

★★★★★★★★★★

Excellent, informative first class!

Polly and her team are awesome! She is very knowledgeable about this history of Bangkok! A lot of the roads were closed for the Kong’s bicycle tour. Later when our tour was done the river was closed and all boats had to stop. Prolly and her team kept in contact with the bus and the boats. While other tourist were lost and confused, Polly kept my team safe and calm. I am so glad she was the tour guide. Her skill level and professionalism is unmatched.!!!! Thank you Polly and your team for a super job well done!

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Maeklong Railway Market Tour

★★★★★★★★★★

Beyond Expectations!

Polly was by far the best tour guide we have ever had. She went above and beyond throughout the tour to make this a great experience for our family (two adults, a 3 year old and 7 month old). We had one day to spend in Bangkok and we feel we made the best decision with the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Maeklong Railway Market Tour. We took a private car to the Maeklong Railway Market where we were able to experience this unique market, then transitioned to a coconut farm, and ended at the floating market. Polly made this tour memorable by taking us to the local areas as well as the tour sites. We were able to have lunch at a phenomenal boat noodle restaurant where we were the only foreigners amongst the local Thai people. She taught us so many interesting facts about the Thai culture and history. Also, she was so patient and kind with our children and looked out for them as we navigated large crowds, uneven train tracks and waterways. By the end of the tour, our 3 year old wanted Polly to stay with us throughout the rest of our Thailand vacation. We are forever grateful to Polly for making our Bangkok experience so memorable.
