Learn about Buddhist symbolism and history from a guide
Includes convenient hotel pickup and a boat ride on the Chao Phraya River
What to expect
Meet your guide at your central Bangkok hotel, and hop inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle. Then, gaze at the bustling streets as you travel to your first destination: Wat Traimit (Temple of the Golden Buddha). Admire the elaborate exterior, and go inside with your guide to view its crowning glory: the world’s biggest solid-gold image of Buddha. Admire the 10-foot (3-meter) statue, hearing how it weighs 5.5 tons (4.9 metric tonnes) and was carved in the 13th century, during Thailand’s Sukhothai period. Next, drive through bustling China Town and past Bangkok's central flower market into Rattanakosin, the old city. Continue to a pier on the Chao Phraya River, and enjoy a scenic boat ride across the water to Wat Arun, known as the Temple of Dawn. View the striking temple, famous for its 259-foot (79-meter) pagoda-style spire, and head inside to see the golden Buddha image and murals in the main hall. Then, cast your eyes over the main spire, whose exterior is encrusted with intricate, colored glass mosaics and Chinese porcelain. Afterward, cross back over the river, and stroll through a vibrant market to Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. One of Bangkok’s largest temples, this ornate complex was Thailand’s first public university, and a center for the teaching of astrology, medicine, and literature. View the chapels, murals, ceramic statues, and rare artifacts here, and admire the showpiece: a stunning 150-foot (46-meter) horizontal statue of Buddha, covered in gold leaf. Walk the statue's length, and feast your eyes on the mother-of-pearl decorations on its feet — in themselves measuring 16.4-feet (5 meters). Your tour then finishes with an early afternoon hotel drop-off.

Great tour
We had an amazing tour with Ms A in March. The temples were very quiet which we liked and it meant we could see and listen to things more. The tour should normally take around 5 hours but due to no queues or traffic it took half the time. Which was ideal to minimise contact due to Corona Virus. They were well organised and had masks plus water for us. The driver was always ready for pick-up once we’d finished each of the sites.

The Temple tour
Feb. 2020 • Solo
I went to see 3 temples in Bangkok. It was a small tour. There was 3 other people with me on the tour. I saw the golden Buda the Reclining Buda and the reclining Buda. I had to take off my shoes I went into the temple. A peaceful place to come and pray. Pretty flowers in the temples. A new experience as I have not seen many temples. The tour guide gave us a lot of information about the temples. And a bottle of water

Amazing Experience!
Feb. 2020
Our tour guide Miss Supatsara Wonghong was spectacular! She was extremely knowledgable and open about the Thailand culture and religion. We enjoyed the intimate experience of having our own tour guide and driver in visiting the temples. Learned so much and we would strongly recommend this tour experience to All!

Awesome Tour
Aug. 2019 • Solo
I had a great tour visiting the top temples of Bangkok. Tour guide Miss Chutima Nawsoon was super knowledgeable and friendly. She gave me lots of information and was very attentive. I learned a lot about the history of Thailand and Thai people, as well as the backgrounds of the temples. All the sites we visited are must see in my view. Highly recommend it.

Miss Natchatya was a wonderful guide! We didn't have to think about or worry about where to go or what to do, we just got to enjoy the tour and sights! For some reason, we had it in our minds that this would be a "bus tour", but it was completely private. We had our own vehicle, driver, and guide the entire time (very nice, comfortable, clean vehicle). Miss Natchatya helped us with taking pictures, gave great historical info, and answered all of our questions. We loved the tour and would do it again!

Mar. 2019 • Family
Supatsara our tour guide was amazing! Friendly and informative she was also great with our four year old, spent time teaching her about offerings to Buddha and even took us to an extra temple to feed the turtles. We didn't feel rushed and had the most pleasant and memorable time sampling street food along the way. Impressive tour with a remarkable lady where nothing was too much! A tour not to miss!

Fabulous private tour
We booked this tour for New Years Eve and were very pleased with the service offered as it was very busy that day. Our guide was Siri, who was a delight. She also included a tour of Chinatown as well as the temples. Siri was very organised getting our tickets etc and negotiating the ferry ride. We were so lucky to have her knowledge as the queues for the return boat were so long and she quickly found an alternative journey for us. The temples themselves were amazing and Siri was able to give us lots of information and answer any questions we had. She also took lots of photos for us!
We were so impressed that we booked a private tour of the floating markets on the basis that we would have Siri to be our guide again!
I would highly recommend this tour and Siri as a tour guide!
