Highlights


On our private tours we will pick you up from your hotel and depending on your location we will start the tour by using public transport to get to an old traditional house along the canal.

At “The Artists House” you will have an opportunity to do mask painting, while enjoying a drink and watching boats go by. After this you will jump in a traditional long-tail boat and explore life along the canals before heading back to the Chao Phraya River. You will say goodbye to our boat driver at The Flower Market where we will explore the market and learn how to fold lotuses. Then it’s time to meet your tuk tuks drivers to explore the old part of Bangkok. After a quick stop for dinner in a family friendly local restaurant we will stop at the Golden Mount Temple (Wat Saket) where the adventure continues as you climb to the top to see the sunset. Once you get down again it is time to say goodbye and our drivers will take you back to your hotel or to a local station if you prefer to use public transport.

This tour lasts approximately 5 hours. We recommend starting at 3pm (dependent on your pick up location), but this tour can be run at any time of day starting between 8am and 4pm. However, it is best to avoid the midday heat.

  • - Normally there will be 2 people per tuk tuk, However, when odd number of passengers or children (on child rates) there may be 3 people per tuk tuk.

Make a Booking:

  • - Advanced booking is required.
  • - If you have special requests or a large group we can customize this tour as a private tour for you.
