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.

Tom, our guide and part-owner of Pandam Tour Company, Ltd., showed us a wonderfully varied and entertaining collection of places that gave us a memorable glimpse of life along the canals that wind through the "other side" of Bangkok. He was personable, knowledgeable, had a perfect command of English, and paced the tour nicely. His excellent web-site will give you... More

After doing EVERYTHING on land....this was a highlight of our 19 day trip to Thailand. Seriously, it was two (2) hours of bliss. Three generations. Private canal cruise foe four adults. $2000 Thai. That's a true bargain. Sad to see all the trash in the water. Hopefully the city can do a major water clean up?

We used "thaicanaltours.com and did the Pandan Tour. I believe it is this company's "small teak boat canal adventure" although the names are confusing. Our guide was named Khing and she was absolutely great. I've been to many Asian markets, but she really gave us great insight into the products and had us pick unusual items we wanted to try...

Hi Sandy, Thank you for the great review you write for us here on TripAdvisor.com. I am sorry our company name is so confusing for you. Our company name is Pandan Tour, and our Tour on the canals is called "Small Teak Boat Canal Adventure" and yes our website is thaicanaltours.com. For even more confusion our guides all used their...

We had just a 2-day stopover in Bangkok with the family (2 children, 10 & 8 years-old), and looked quite last minute about a short visit of the major temples and a boat trip on the Canal and surroundings. Quick communication, clear pricing quote, and adaptation to our wishes were appreciated. Our guide Champ was right on time at the... More

The title says it all! Our guide took us to visit local temples, a morning market, an orchid farm and to see a puppet show at the artist's house. The guide was happy and friendly and told us many interesting facts about the area and its people. The trip took 6 hours all together. Wouldn't recommend this tour on a... More

Bangkok is a busy city and hard to see see something genuine. We had begun our search trying to find an authentic floating market, but in the end we booked a private Small Teak Boat tour. Our guide, Nadia, was just brilliant. We saw so much of the canal system including temples and markets only seen and visited by local... More

This made a nice day-trip, started at 8:30am at a BTS station in West Bangkok, got on the canal boat and went down the canals to a large temple where we spent ~1 hour. Our guide was nice and knowledgeable. Got back on the boat and visited a much smaller temple for ~15 min or so, later we visited a... More

On our first day in Bangkok we took scooter tour around busy streets and learned about the metropolis. On our last day, we took a small boat tour, and saw a totally different side of Bangkok, narrow canals, floating market. Our tour guide was Nui. She speaks perfect English, she's funny, knowledgeable and caring. She became part of our family... More

We booked a Bangkok canal tour with Thai Canal Tours based on a recommendation from a friend. We opted for the 3 hour sunset tour. It was wonderful! You get to see a side of Bangkok you can only experience by canal. Our guide Nui spoke perfect English. She gave a great explanation of everything we saw including how Bangkok... More
