If you are looking for an authentic Thai thing to do, canal tour is the one! Because boats on canals were used as transport traditionally, many interesting sites are along the water way. Our tour stops at: Morning Fresh Produce Market(Weekend altered with a Riverside Floating Market), Orchid Nursery in Green Rush, Hidden Forest Temple, Traditional Thai House (the Artist's House). We can also arrange custom tours around water ways. Please make sure to email or call us to reserve a boat before your tour date.

We paid 100 Euros for a 4 hours afternoon canal tour, which we found average and expensive. The area had not many tourists which was nice but on the other hand what we saw doesn't justify the price. We were disapointed also from our guide who wasn't friendly and didn't answer our questions but was stuck on her speech. Her... More

Efficient organisation with a great deal of flexibility. The guide was kind, friendly, his explanations were informative. The sunset tour is probably more relaxed as the sights are less crowded with tourists. The canal tour was helpful in the better understanding of Bangkok.

We took the Small Canal Boat Tour (weekend) including visits to two temples, local "floating" market, orchid farm and "artist" house featuring a puppet theatre performance. Honestly, the first temple was just another very bright Thai style temple with a lot of gold and color. The second one, the "wood temple", is simply not worth mentioning. We supposed the floating...

Wouldn't do Bangkok without this tour; but particularly if a first time visitor. Our trip mates had been to Bangkok many times and on another canal but were as pleased as we by the experience. Someone previously mentioned this tour as chartered through Pandan small teak boat canal tours. I mention this because we sent up our tour from home... More

This is a trip in a teak longboat driven by a converted lorry engine (very traditional) along the backwaters away from the main river. We saw life as it used to be and still is and were made most welcome at an orchid farm, some old houses and of course, a grand temple. Nui, our guide, made us most welcome... More

Very good personalized tour with a small group. It was us and another couple, which made the experience enjoyable. The sites visited were excellent. I wasn't sure what to expect for the Puppet Show, but boy was I wrong, it was excellent!!! Our guide, Mr. T. was personable and had a great sense of humor. He even helped us with... More

Can highly recommend this trip. We very much enjoyed going along the water ways of Tonbury and all the activities included in our day out. They were varied and interesting. Well worth the extra to take a private boat for the day!
