We booked 2 tours with Tour East on Viator during our 2 day stay in Bangkok. First was fullday private tour to floating markets and Bridge on River Kwai with Suki and Anun. Suki was very knowledgable and our tour went very smoothly. Pick up was spot on time and we had a great day. Floating markets are a must do in Thailand and we are so glad we did it. Tried coconut pancakes and mango sticky rice from street vendors there. Yum! Make sure you haggle alot at the markets. At least start at half the asking price! Lunch was on River Kwai, buffet style with limited options but filled us up. We went to the Museum, Cemetery and Bridge on River Kwai as well as coconut product factory and markets.
The second tour was to Emerald Buddah temple. Peter was our guide, who was very good. Pick up again was on time despite our booking having the wrong hotel name on it (don't know how that happened). This was quickly sorted by the concierge at our hotel. We had a nice tour to the temple, we were also shown where the King lives now. Not sure why they take you a long way out of their way to take you to the gem factory, interesting to see the workmanship in the factory but then the inevitable tour through the jewellery shop. Private transfers were then arranged to get us back to where we needed to be to get back to our ship. Overall, everything went well, pricing for the private tour was higher than I might have expected for Thailand but was definitely worth not having to wait for 50 people to get on and off the bus and have personalised attention. Can recommend Tour East to do what they say they will do at reasonable cost. Thank you.
