An enjoyable afternoon spent on the river. Hotel pick up arrived on time and with a couple of more pick ups on the way we still got to start point with 20 mins to spare. Trip on the long tail boat was enjoyable with plenty of good photo opportunities. Transfer to the Rice Barge was smooth and the fruit and juice drinks were good. Chatted with people from different countries in various stages of their holidays and all seemed pleased with the afternoon. All in all a nice way to fill in a few hours of the afternoon. Would recommend.

We only had a limited amount of time so were looking for a tour that would provide us with a good overview of Bangkok in only a few hours. This tour really our needs. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the dock where we boarded a long boat for a tour of the canals. After about an hour we were transferred to a larger boat that took us for a nice tour of the main river in Bangkok. We were served drinks and snacks including local fruits. A guide on board pointed out all the sights along the river. After we docked back at the pier we were transported back to our hotel. We were very pleased with the entire experience.

The tour was a good way to spend the afternoon seeing Bangkok by boat and barge. The tour spent most of its time on Bangkok's main river, plus one side waterway. My only disappointment is that the tour did not explore some of the more obscure waterways in the city which would give an even more in depth view of the city. Otherwise, it was a nice tour and for the price, can't be beat.

Our Bangkok plans had us going out for a night on the town the previous night so we were looking for something relaxing that didnt take all day. This was the perfect way to get out and see the city from the water. We were picked up on time from our hotel and taken to the pier which had a nice art gallery / shopping mall where we spent our time strolling through the shops before our cruise began. The services offered were exactly as described. Many stated in previous reviews that they had trouble hearing the tour guide due to the engine noise on the boats, but this was not the case for us. Our guide Peter was very knowledgeable and provided interesting facts about BKK that we were not aware of. He was enthusiastic and set a great tone for the full experience. The canal tour took us up one of the larger canals where we fed catfish with bread purchased on the boat for a minimal price. We transferred to the rice barge where there was a nice selection of fruits and drinks. The service was attentive and wed happily take this tour again. After the tour we were taken back to our hotel. This is where we experienced the one challenge with the excursion. The driver was impatient while we waited to use the restroom and was frustrated that we didnt know we were holding him up. Dont let this sway your decision to go on this cruise. It was a minor inconvenience but one that was a surprise given how well the rest of the cruise played out.
