Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.
Your full-day shore excursion will begin with a convenient pickup from Laem Chabang Cruise terminal after your ship docks. Your English-speaking guide will welcome you before bringing you to the comfortable minivan which you will travel in to Bangkok. Drive approximately 2 hours, enjoying the local scenery outside your window. Upon arrival, you will visit the Grand Palace that is home to the stunning Emerald Buddha. Local people come here to pray and pay respects to the beloved late King Rama 9. Next, proceed to Wat Pho. Arguably one of the most well-known attractions of Bangkok, this temple is home to the largest sleeping Buddha. It is also the ancient Thai massage study center. Hop on a long tail boat and cruise along the canals before reaching Chinatown where you will visit Wat Traimit, the Golden Buddha Temple. Enjoy a stop at a local restaurant to feast on lunch (own expense) before proceeding to partake in some shopping, if time permits. Pick up local souvenirs to take home with you, so you always have a piece of the Kingdom of Thailand with you. Return to the port and to your shop safely once the tour is complete.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Well organised with a driver and a very knowledgeable guide. Skipping the queues too, and as soon as we had finished visiting a place of interest the guide telephoned the drive who would be there to pick us at the exit gate. No hanging around then on to the next place. Finally a very fast and thrilling boat ride on the canals ,Just the two of us in a boat to ourselves brilliant. Thoroughly recommend this your well worth the money.
What a great excursion!! If you are lucky you will get Sirin as your guide. She was excellent in knowlledge of the sights on the program and did everything possible to insure our comfort snd safety. The river ride was a blast. The grand palace is beautiful as are the three temples —gold,reclining and emerald. The driver was great too. Some things to know, though, are it is a long way to the city from the port and the traffic is fierce. Our tour was originally for 8 hours but it turned to 11 hours but van is comfortable. We enjoyed it.
Great tour. Our tour guide and driver were there waiting for us when we got off the ship. Ms. Beer was very informative and nice. My friend had a fall and cut above her eye when her glasses hit her face. Ms. Beer got us into a taxi and took us to the emergency room where they put stiches on the cut. She acted quickly and took good care of us. We then continued our tour and enjoyed it very much. Ms. Beer was wonderful.
Our trip was excellent. Our tour guide Dahl and driver Ace were at the ship to pick us up when we docked. The trip into town was 2 1/2 hours, better than the 3 1/2 we had been quoted for the ship tours. Dahl was excellent at keeping the tour to our pace, finding elevators rather than many flights of stairs etc. Be prepared for large crowds We covered everything on the itinerary without rushing and Dahl's knowledge was great. The long tail boats were a highlight. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide was wonderful. She adapted the tour to suit us and let me add an extra sight that was not included in the original itinerary. She was always cognizant of our needs, bought us water, carried my shoes in some of the temples and was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She made sure we saw everything that was included, kept a comfortable pace, made a stop for snacks at our request and was always accommodating. I would highly recommend her and the tour.
We had a really great day in Bangkok. Our guide Nui really looked after us and explained things well
We were very fortunate to have TuTu for our guide. We were met at the cruise terminal with our name clearly displayed. Transported to a small comfortable air conditioned bus. Just my husband and I on the tour. TuTu made us feel very comfortable from the start explaining what our tour entailed. The Grand Palace certainly Grand and the golden Buddha is a must see. Our highlight was the long tail boat through the canals. Lunch own expense was very good and very reasonable. The tour was made easy with TuTu obtaining entrance tickets and using short cuts to get around the crowds. It was a very hot day but we were provided with cold water and cold face wipes. By using a small bus we were able to have close drop off and pick up. At my request we visited a silver shop at the end of our tour. Great tour, great guide and driver. Excellent day.
The private agent was relatively new as a tour guide. He was flexible enough to change the set itinerary to accommodate what we want to see. He recommended some local dishes for us to try and took us to a restaurant where we can order our own food. a Personal and friendly tour guide.
So happy with this tour. Walked off the ship and Dao was waiting with a sign - always happy when things start on key. We were the only two people in this comfortable van which meant we moved at our own pace and seemed to be able to enjoy everything in a relaxed way despite the crowds. Dao is a great guide and we felt we got an understanding of both Thai history and culture, along with her personal experiences of family life. The river boat ride was a blast and the temples and Grand Palace are experiences not to be missed. A great day

Sasakhorn Nan our dedicated guide for a private tour of Bangkok was amazing, knowledgeable, energetic and to the point. She briefed us on the history during the long drive from Leam Chabang to Bangkok. She guided us expertly through all the planned activities, visited the grand Palace, the Pagodas, the Golden Buddha, the Reclining Buddha, the Emerald Buddha, all impressive. She got us on the Long Boat tour which was an amazing tour of all types of houses on piles. Sasa took us to an extensive tour of Chinatown and to a quaint and delicious little Vietnamese restaurant. A most enjoyable and instructive visit. Highly recommended.
