Excellent tour! Very informative! Jamie was an EXCELLENT guide who loves sharing her country with visitors! She and our driver were waiting for our group at the Hotel on time. Our fist stop on our tour was the Golden Buddha! Spectacular! Amazing! Beautiful! After we finished there, we were able to add on a longtail boat ride down the Chao Phraya River which is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL and you can pay cash if you choose to do it - we only paid a few dollars per person. If you have the opportunity, add on the longtail boat ride because you get to see the city from the river on your way to the Grand Palace. After our boat docked at a little restaurant, we walked through the restaurant and out to the street which was very close to the Grand Palace. Our next stop was the Emerald Buddha and the Grand Palace. Absolutely exquisite! MUST SEE! You cannot take photos of the Emerald Buddha, but it is worth it to see it and the Grand Palace. After this, we went to have lunch at a very tasty restaurant. Jamie ordered the dishes for us, so we were all able to eat family style with the food in the middle of the table and you were able to take as much as you wanted of each dish. There was more than enough food for everyone. There was a bottled water included with the lunch, but you were able to purchase a soft drink, tea, or beer if you chose. Our last stop for the day was the Reclining Buddha - wow...very impressive and very LONG and tall!! Take advantage of the cut out spots to take your photo with the Buddha! At all Temples, you must remove your shoes, so if walking barefoot is an issue, bring a pair of socks. At the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha, both men and women MUST have your shoulder and knees covered. If you do not, they will not let you in. Highly recommend this tour! It was the highlight of our trip and a fantastic company to book with.
