The tour was really nice overall. The railway market is not really a must see but if you happen to be there on the tour, it is a nice stop. However the floating market was really nice, especially if you leave the direct river side with the wooden planks and go a bit more into the center of the city, where more locals shop and the prices are a bit cheaper. We were almost the only foreign tourists which was very different to other Bangkok experiences. We even happened to see some fireflies on the boat. Only drawback: we were picked up 50 minutes after schedule with the explanation of ‘traffic jam’ - which seemed not to be the truth as we had to move to another car after the first stop. So probably they forgot to pick us up before. A message / update would have been nice instead of letting us call the agency several times. We were scared that the tour would not happen. Nevertheless I would recommend it besides these points as the experience was very good.

Hi, I have some idea to make your tour better. Some feedback. In the boat, other passenger use the phone, make it hard for me to see firefly. Can please tell passenger not to use bright phones during the firefly watching?
Overall we enjoyed the tour a lot. I think it would help to include in the meeting instructions that the tour operator will go to the meeting point to call out for the guests. We were looking out for the van and got a bit confused.
it was nice!
Dispite the traffic our guide & driver managed to active all our goals, train departing the station crossing through the market, the floating market, we time enough to enjoy and have a nice dinner and the fireflies as the perfect happy ending. Good van, small group, best value for money. Thanks
