This is a GREAT tour!!!!

This is an excellent tour. Oh and her crew were so nice and informative. Even though we went during covid times, it was still great. There were less tourists. lol The train was very cool--pulling into the market was amazing as was walking through the market. Our tour was never rushed so we liked that. Then we went to the floating market. Such a fun experience. Not many people but might have been overwhelming if all the shops were open and there were many boats in the water. The food at the market was lovely. Felt very local to us and we loved it. Oh also took us to a local farm and told us the history of the house and the farm. Very informative. She is a great communicator and we would highly recommend this tour.

Market day ... full of impressions

Early morning start ... hotel pickup is a great offered service and worked very well. Going to the sea salt farm by car and get a short impression of their work. Take the train to the Maeklong Railway Market. About 40 minutes to explore the market with all its fruits, fish, meat, household items and items of daily needs ... The high lights of the swimming market (Damnoen Saduak market) are not the clothes, art objects and souvenirs on offer - it is the atmosphere of the floating market stalls ... eating like a Thai - buy some of the good food what is prepared in front of you in one of the little boats and take a sit on the stairs and enjoy the time.

Long day and crazy early start but good fun and the guide was fantastic. I was running late and he waited, never complained. Even went out of their way to drop us close to our hotel although we didn’t have the tour with that option. Would definitely use these guys again. Funny and informative.

Wonderful trip. Amy is great- she went over and above providing commentary on the bus en route. She even handed out refreshments, local fried bananas to try. Very careful and protective of the group. Visits very interesting. Both railway and floating markets worth seeing. Highly recommend this,

What an amazing day! Don't miss this tour with this company!

Tee picked us up at the hotel at the designated time. He was very personable and spoke English well. He explained about what was going to happen during the day so we would be prepared. The experience was like nothing I've ever done before. We rode into the market by train. The tourists were lined up along the way. I was photographing them and they were photographing me. The market was amazing to see. All the food products as the locals buy them. From there we went on to the floating market. Again Tee enlightened us as to what was going to happen and also told us a lot about Thai culture. The floating market was another experience that I will never forget. All in all it was a tremendously enjoyable day. I highly recommend this trip with this company. While other tour groups bring you to the market to see the train, we rode into the market on the train and watched from the station as it left and they put the market back together again.

The guide was a nice guy and spoke English very well. The tour is exactly as it is described. They take you to a railway point where you take the train in order to get to the station on the train. Then you have a few minutes to walk along the train market (about 10-15min). After that you can see the train leaving the station but this time from the market. It's nice to have both points of view: from and down the train. Then they take you to the floating market, one part by van and the rest by boat (but just to get there). There you have some time to walk along the floating market. If you want to tour ir by boat it is not included, you'll have to pay a ticket which is not expensive. I recommend taking this tour, was a nice experience.

Pick-up on time. Great tour guide and driver. Only one suggestion is to have more time on the train than floating market.

I'd rate it higher if I could. Kat was wonderful. The train trip and market were astonishing. The long tail boat ride was fun even though it was a bit uncomfortable. The floating market was interesting though it could have been a bit shorter. The little boat ride was OK. Fun to do though a bit touristy. The only downside was that the van was pretty uncomfortable for such lengthy rides.
