Everything was good, except for the driver, who was a total jerk. What an idiot.
Great tour. Not tour operator fault, but floating market very touristy and expensive market, but boats are fun. Loved the train market. Quick tour but worth doing rather than travelling to both markets yourself. Recommended tour group.
The tour fulfilled its purpose, i.e. visitting both markets. We could see the train, and that is a pro. Though, I felt that we were left at the mercy of insistent vendors. Dropoff should be at the pickup point, unless asked otherwise.
The perfect morning 👌
It was interesting to visit both places although it’s very touristic. Could have spend more time On the floating market. The guide knew a bit English but could be better
