    AVOID!!! Scam artists package as guides
    , Jul 2022
    Pat was a wonderful tour guide, and this poor review shouldn’t take away from her efforts. But this touring company has terrible business practices with questionable ethics. We purchased a private group tour for my family of three, we were under the impression that it will only be us in the tour. Unfortunately, the day of the trip we received a message to state that we have been “upgraded” to a van and an additional two person will be joining. Normally we aren’t opposed to group tour but it wasn’t what we purchased. They offer to take 15USD off the original purchase price which will not equate to the price of a group tour from another company. We will never use them nor recommend any of my friends or family who intended to visit Thailand. Unfortunately these actions will be the downfall of this country. No one expects to go on vacation to be taken advantage off.

    We did the tour regularly and our guide was described as WONDERFUL. The customer tried to get aN excessive reimbursement even though he hadn't paid for his 8-year-old son, which he would have to pay as an adult due to terms of sale. Bottom line, these are the kind of customers who threaten reviews in order to get a refund and sadly there are many like these nowadays ... It is not tolerable that these types of people write SCAM in the title of the review. This thing is absolutely false, the SCAMMER is whoever tries to obtain an excessive or undue refund.

    It was a wonderful day touring the palace and grounds. Noka was a wonderful guide whose knowledge of the history of Thailand and Buddhism was greatly appreciated. The heat was oppressive but a fan and plenty of fluids helped.

    The Royal palace was the highlight of my tour today. If anyone visiting Bangkok it is a must to visit this fabulous place . The tour guide was very professional and caring.

    I booked through Viator. The pick up was late. The guide was not interested in sharing information or maybe didn't know much.. very poor experience. The sights themselves are beautiful. Must see. Use some other tour operator.. i saw some enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides there!
    Informative tour
    , Nov 2019
    Wonderful tour. Ended up being a private tour so we had the opportunity to see a few extra things local. Without our guide, Chick it would have been difficult to see all we saw. This was great. Ended up taking her to lunch after the tour.

    The tour was good. Best way to see Bangkok in three hours if u just want to see the main attractions
    What a great way to see the palaces!
    , Sep 2019
    We had a great driver and guide! Very energetic and knowledgeable! Always trying to get us to laugh with silly jokes! They kept the tour on time and was kind enough to help us take some great pictures! Thank you! We learned a lot and would recommend this tour!
    Good tour but not what we signed up for
    , Aug 2019
    I’ll preface this review with Pok was a very good tour guide and the situation was not due to him at all, it was InnViaggi Asia Co. Ltd. We’d signed up for a group tour to see the Royal Palace, Reclining Buddha, and Golden Buddha with hotel pickup. As this was our first time in Thailand and our first day in Thailand, we really wanted a group tour so we would feel safer and feel like the tour was more legit. We also really wanted an air conditioned vehicle transporting us to the different areas as is per usual with group tours because of the humidity in Thailand. A week before our tour, I got an email from the company asking for our hotel info for pickup. I responded within a couple of hours and expected a response with the hotel pickup time and confirmation that they received that information. They did not respond. In fact, they never responded to anything from us including emails to their different accounts and direct phone calls. We have never personally been able to get in contact with them. I emailed them a couple of days before our tour and then again the night before and again the morning of. No response. Had the hotel give their 3 numbers they listed a call. No response. Finally, I go over their heads and get in a message chat with Viator and they have to contact them on our behalf. We’ve already waited 30 mins at this point, having sat in the lobby from 7am -7:30am like the online instructions told us to (pickup being roughly an hour to 30 mins before tour start). They say they’ve gotten in contact with them and that they’ll pick us up at 8am but to be in the lobby 15-20 mins ahead of that. We wait another 30 mins. And then another 30 mins. No pickup. I got in another Viator chat and they get in contact with them again and they apparently say they sent us an email saying that our tour has been “upgraded” to a private tour starting at 9am because our hotel is out of range for pickup. First off, never got that email. Second off, they should have informed us a week ago when I sent them our hotel info that our hotel is out of range and our tour would be changed. Third off, the first place they visit on the tour is walkable from our hotel so why is it “out of range”?? Pok shows up saying they called him like 15 mins ago to give us a private tour and that we’ll be taking public transport everywhere. Once again, wanted a group tour and private transportation. Pok was great, but this wasn’t what we paid for. Never booking with this company again.

    Mediocre tour
    , May 2019
    Guide wasn’t that knowledgeable, and it was hard to understand the little she explained. Bought this tour as a 5 hour tour, it lasted only 3! If it would not have the beautiful palace and temples, I would give it only a star.
    Value for money
    , Apr 2019
    Excellent. Guide was clear and passionate. Palace was crowded but the temples were superb. Provided bottled water and van was comfortable
    Great experience
    , Mar 2019
    Arrived in the hotel lobby just before 8a.m. to be met by our tour guide Jeab ready to get us on our way. Jeab was very welcoming and friendly and was very informative throughout . When everyone was on the bus she offered us an extra canal tour which was very worthwhile (for a bit extra money ) She was very knowledgable throughout the tour and offered lots of valuable information. She gave lots of advice about other places to visit in Bangkok and booked us in for the Floating Markets the next day. A lovely lady - thoroughly enjoyable tour .
    So so

    Tour did as promised. However, it ended at gem factory, not on the intinary. The description included transportation back to the hotel. However, I had to take a taxi back.
    Quick Way to see the Highlights of Bangkok
    , Dec 2018
    After an initial mix-up over pick-up time, this turned out to be an excellent tour in which my wife and I were the only participants. First we saw the 3 m high statue of Buddha made of solid gold at Wat Traimit, then the gigantic reclining Buddha covered in gold leaf at Wat Pho and finally the utterly beautiful Royal Grand Palace which included the statue of the emerald Buddha at Wat Phra Kaew. We had a good guide who hired taxis for each leg of the journey and saved time parking. She was willing to adapt to our needs and wishes.

    This tour was amazing! The tour leader was really sweet and kind but also knowledgeable! This tour provided a great learning experience and I would highly recommend! The only issue, at the end of the tour, we were taken to a jewellery gallery. This was not described in the tour information and also took away from the magic of the temples and experience. There was a pressure to buy from the shop assistants that was not appreciated. Overall, the tour was good and interesting!

    I thought the tour guide Diamond was awesome....he was very informative and engaging. The only part I didnt like were the crowds at the temples...however with it being such a tourist attraction, I understood and dealt with it.. I would do this trip again if I could have Diamond as a tour guide.

    Fascinating site, but probably too crowded by visitors to take it all in - especially architecture. Recommend review history of site before taking tour, so you can understand lay out and importance. Crowds make it hard for tour guide to address much in the way of site history/significance. Though Guide was most knowledgeable.

    CAUTION - Pick up time 08:00 5 stars - Tour 5 stars BUT then they take you to a jewellery store with no option watch a boring video and pressure you to purchase. This added another 3 hours to the tour with no lunch before arriving back at you motel 15:00 - 2 stars

    Good comprehensive tour of the main temples, a good introduction to Bangkok.
