Then you’ll proceed inside, where you’ll get an up-close look at the famous statue from which this temple gets its name. The enormous 11,000 lb Golden Buddha is hard to miss! Here, you’ll hear the dramatic history behind this Buddha, including how it was almost lost to the sands of time!

Sunee, our guide was fabulous. She explained a lot about Bangkok, its culture, its population and its history. We had the opportunity to create some traditional flower sets at the flower market! She showed us authentic places that we never would have seen by ourselves. We spent 9 hours with her and we did not get bored 1 single minute. We recommend it at 100%. Thanks again. Myriam and Matthieu

Very motivated and cordial tour guide. She brought us a good deal closer to the culture of Asia and showed us places we would never have seen. When an attraction was closed, she immediately improvised and continued to feed us with local information and places. We are very positively surprised by the great interest in bringing us closer to life and food in Bangkok. Highly recommended

Amazing tour!!! Mr. Kusuwan is extremely knowledgeable and we found the tour to be one of the highlights of the trip. If you like detail, this is the tour for you. His grasp of history and culture is excellent and he will be sure to impress. Don't worry about getting hungry or thirsty, he knows where to visit along the way. I cannot recommend this more.

He has responded a lot to the wishes I have expressed and has just rebuilt his door. I've seen a lot of interesting corners with him. I can only thank him here for the beautiful day in Bangkok.

Jojo was just great. Super friendly, very competent, was a very rich day, the best city tour I've ever had
