Explore Bangkok in comfort with a luxury minivan. In case you like to experience a tuk tuk ride, we can still make this a part of the tour.
We start the day with the flower market. This wholesale flower market opens around the clock. Fresh flowers are big business here since they are indispensable in Buddhist ceremonies. Thais use them for both worships and decorations. Apart from colorful sights and beautiful aromas, this is also a good opportunity to taste various kinds of fresh tropical fruits.
Next, we visit Wat Pho that houses the country's most beautiful reclining Buddha with an impressive length of 46 meters. Besides being the temple with a stupa containing the ashes of Chakri Dynasty's first king, this temple was once a "medical school" for people who wanted to study Traditional Thai Medicine. Courses on Traditional Thai massage are still being offered.
Then, we cross the river to Bangkok landmark, Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn. The 67 meters high corn-shaped pagoda or (Pra Prang in Thai) represents Mount Meru, the center of the universe in Buddhist-Hindu cosmology. The Prang "supported" by demons, monkeys, and divinities is surrounded by the four continents. The structure's exterior is decorated with small pieces of Chinese porcelain, a unique feature introduced by King Rama III.
We take a break at a riverside restaurant where a delicious Thai lunch is freshly prepared for you.
Later on, we take you on a relaxing long-tailed boat tour to see the local life in the Venice of the East. Explore the canals and enjoy the view of wooden houses on stilts.
Optional attractions are also available. If you want to make the most of your time in Bangkok, you can personalize your tour on the booking form:
- Replace Wat Arun with a stroll down the streets of Chinatown for a more local experience in one of the oldest and most interesting districts of Bangkok, you will still be able to see Wat Arun from the long tailed boat.
- Add Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (emerald Buddha Temple), if you don’t mind the crowds then this is a spectacular place to visit, we will start around 8:00.
- Enjoy a 30-minute relaxing traditional Thai or foot massage at Wat Pho temple
This private tour in Bangkok is organised exclusively for you, no others will join. You will be in trusted hands with our professional driver and English speaking licensed tour guide.
Note: You can also choose to explore Bangkok like a local by booking the Bangkok Highlights tour by local transport.
Amazing sights and very informative tour guides! This tour brings you to all the top places to see in Bangkok. We loved the long-tail boat ride as well as the history of all the temples. We felt we were able to do and see all the best things in the short amount of time we had in Bangkok. The vans were clean, air conditioned and comfortable. The drivers were also very helpful and kept us safe.
I am glad that I took this tour. I wanted to cover most important sites to visit in Bangkok one day with comfort. The minivan was very comfortable and extremely clean as well as well decorated. The tour guide Mrs. Rath was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I was surprised fined that being a tourist country most people in Bangkok can not speak English ( very frustrating to communicate) but Mrs Rath was an exception. If anyone is looking for a comfortable and reasonably priced one day Bangkok tour , I would strongly encourage considering BKK Tours

Ms Air was great! She was very informative and helpful. We really enjoyed her company and have already planned for our next trip! Our driver Mr A was a safe driver and very approachable. We are glad we chose BKK Tours and will definitely use them again and will recommend to family and friends! Excellent customer service from Michiel. Ms Air also went out of her way to assist us in organising our trip to the orphanage and translated for us, Mr A was our driver for that as well and they are very accommodating! Cannot fault at all.

We were a group of 14 and everyone raved about how great the tour was. All in all it was a great day, and a wonderful way to see the city when you only have a short time.
Our trip with a family of 10 had an amazing time on the minivan tour. Ms. Onn and Ms. Raht were excellent guides. They had a superb amount of knowledge on the places we visited and were amazingly friendly. They were kind, polite and respectful and handled our large group well.
When we stopped over for lunch and snacks, they were very considerate of mine and my brother’s dietary choice as vegans.
I spent most of my time with Ms. Onn and I can confidently call her a friend and someone I would love to visit again (whether on tour or not) when I revisit Bangkok. Every question we asked she answered other pride and confidence. She was also very inspiring.
She and Ms. Raht made our trip, after having a poor tourist experience the day before.
Highly recommend BKK tours when visiting Bangkok!! Especially with these two lovely ladies. We all felt extremely welcomed and comfortable throughout the day.
Thank you BKK tours!
My family and I enjoyed the tour of Bangkok. Air took good care of us and was extremely helpful with our children. She was insightful and made sure that we got to see all the sights. We really liked the restaurant that Air took us to. It was some of the best food that we ate in Bangkok.
Great tour package. Got exactly what we were expecting and more. It was very well organized and extremely convenient. Our tour guide (Ms. Onn) was extremely knowledgeable and very attentive and thorough in responding to our questions as well as making sure we got a great experience. Her choices of foods to try and lunch were excellent and she took care to make sure dietary needs of people in our group were met. Overall an excellent experience all the way from booking through the entire tour. The tour operator was very responsive and thorough in confirming our plans and providing clear directions. Highly recommend this company and our tour guide.
Great experience overall, from initial enquire to booking and then the actual tour itself. Michiel responded promptly to emails and was very helpful with planning the tours. Raht, our guide for two days, was also fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and also very attentive. She made travelling with two small children so much more easier and relaxing. I would highly recommend this company.
Raht did a fantastic job! One of the best tour guides we have had. We had a great time and cannot wait to return.
Fantastic day seeing the sights of stunning Bangkok with an exceptional driver and a wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable guide. Loved the tour, saw everything we wanted to see. Mr A excellent driver and Mrs Onn is just gorgeous. Thank you for an unforgettable day!
Raht was very knowledgeable and had an amazing day with her. A brilliant tour throughout.
Mr.T was very knowledgable, kind, and made us feel comfortable. I will definitely book another tour with him and or recommend him to my friends.
Ms Petch was really perfect. Thanks to the driver also.

This is the second time I have had a tour with Mr. Tee. He does a lovely job caring for tour guests and is also very knowledgeable about Thailand. I would definitely request him again!

This tour covers many of the major must see tourist attractions in Bangkok, plus Petch was able to give us valuable insight to what we were looking at. Petch was an excellent guide. She quickly was able to assess our needs. l use a stick and she made sure l was comfortable and confident getting around. Lunch was a great experience at the Naval Restaurant , Petch ordered some very tasty food for us. Very personable, knowledgeable and made sure we got added value out of the whole experience.

We toured Bankok area for 3 days. Ms Raht and the drivers were always on time, very congenial and accommodating. The programs were filled with information and very interesting. Refreshments, were always available and very cold, great for Canadians in the Thai heat. Food ordered by Ms Raht were very tasteful, interesting. We have travelled regularly to China and found her choices of food were great experiences. Ms Raht always made sure that we were introduced to new, tasty snacks, not found in most Asian countries. Enjoyed the tours tremendously.
Excellent tour. Marisa was the perfect guide with humour and wisdom 🙂
Fabulous tour with a great guide. It was a fun, well-paced day.

Best tour ever. Very good lunch and guide recommend different thai food. Guide give much information about places, but also interested us and where we come from. Petch took great care of us.
Overall, the tour was excellent! Arrangements were professionally handled and our tour was custom made to our liking. Management was very accommodating as we had a last minute change in numbers in our party as unfortunately some of my family were suddenly sick and unable to attend. I would highly recommend this tour company to my friends visiting Bangkok!
