    Trip to the National Park
    We had auch a blast! You can see so many different animals along the trail. We saw catapillars and the huge butterflies they are eventually gonna turn into. We also saw gibbons in the trees at one point. The jungle ist breathtaking and the thick canopy is incredible. You will see so many plantay many of which you might have only seen in greenhouses before. Our tourguide Tanja was very knowlegable of the Flora and Fauna of our surroundings. She was always looking after us as we bested unfamiliar terrain. Moreover she spoke very good Englisch and was very witty and funny. If you are staying in Bangkok this is an experience you won't forget.

    Amazing day with amazing people!
    I've been to 40 countries, and our guides Siri and Kan, and driver Frank were some of the best I've had. They made our Bangkok railway and floating market and Ayuthaya temple tour so fun! Everything ran smoothly, and everyone had a great, pleasant attitude. Our guides took great care of us, took great pictures, were super knowledgeable and personable with great senses of humor. Their love for their jobs was obvious. It was a very long, but great day full of laughs and lots of learning thanks to them!

    Very Enriching Tour!
    This tour was such an enriching experience! Our guides Siri and Kan were extremely knowledgeable and very attentive to our needs throughout the tour. Our driver Frank was safe and attentive as well. We learned so much about the Thai culture and Buddhism in general. We learned so much about the history of Ayutthya and Bangkok, the dynasties and the wars and conflicts that have taken place within the regions. The markets were fun and vibrant and our guides even gave us some insight on what items were selling for the best prices. They also were great photographers, making sure that we were capturing each special moment :) although the schedule is pretty full, I never felt rushed throughout. Highly recommend!

    Great time with young kids
    We were a family of 5 (3 adults, 9yo, 3yo) and we really enjoy this tour. We discover a sife of Bangkok we hadn’t yet discover. Both kids had a blast making arts in the floating markets. Our guide was super friendly and we would totally do this tour again :)

Today's experience was so and so. The places were very busy, so it was difficult to hear everything my guide was saying. Her voice was not very loud, so at some point I gave up on listening to everything she was saying. She had a lot of knowledge though. I think if I went to the selectee places all by myself it wouldn't have been so different. I'm a bit disappointed, but I still had a great time.

Tuk was an excellent tour guide who did a good job of anticipating our interests and answering the questions we had. His English was great and we only had a few instances of asking him to repeat things in the four hour tour. There was a good mix of having him show us around the sights and having time to explore alone, which was good in the huge and overwhelming palace/temples. This was our second tour with Wander Siam and they've both been excellent.

Our guide (Tak) was very knowledgeable, approachable and kind. Regardless of the scorching heat he made sure we could be as comfortable as possible. He gave good insights about history and culture all throughout. It was a good experience to crunch these attraction in few hours and learn about Thailand.

This tour is a must-see for Bangkok during the day. Highlights include the Royal Palace and the Dawn Temple. Our guide, Sunday, was very knowledgeable and answered so many of my questions about the city (and shared subway info too). And he knows all the bear photo spots! Wonderful tour and highly recommend it.

During my previous visit to Bangkok, I viewed these temples without the benefit of a guide. While a wonderful experience, I do believe taking the tour this time around enhanced my knowledge of the places we visited. Our guide (I can't recall his name) was competent, however, I think he could have shared even more information than he did. All in all, the tour is reasonably priced and worth taking.

We loved this tour with Nikki! She was so knowledgeable, funny and interesting. If we were there longer we would have booked more tours with her! Her pacing and English was really good, and she even took great photos for us. Any time I had a question, it was like she read my mind and actually went ahead and answered without me saying anything. I felt like I saw everything, and learned interesting things about Thai culture that I wouldn't have otherwise. This was much better than going alone and having to research.

Very pleasant tour at a nice pace in Bangkok. It was a very hot day but our guide, Sunday, tried to keep us in the shade. We visited the Grand palace and 2 temples. The tour also includes a bottle of water and the fare of short boat rides across the river to Wat Arun.

Absolutely wonderful experience with Sunday! Sunday was knowledgeable, fun, and made our experience very enjoyable. The length of the tour was perfect and an early start helped with the heat. I would recommend this this tour and company to anyone seeking a great experience touring some of Bangkok’s treasures.

Sunday was a jovial, helpful and intelligent guide who seemed genuinely interested in the history of the place and the people he was taking around. It was a packed day but the experience was worth the money spent. The only problem was the heat, even the beginning of March seemed quite warm and uncomfortable.

Amazing day !! Worth the money - you could do the temples etc for cheaper but you’d have to navigate thai transport ans the temples aren’t well labelled I’d have gotten lost so if only for that it’s worth it. Wear sandals - You’ll take off your shoes so many times. The guide was informative withought being overbearing. Bring a hat and / or sunglasses it’s hot and a battery pack your phone will need it after all the pics etc.
