      Excellent tour
      Great tour today. A full day one but interesting and good value. War cemetery for the death railway. Very moving. Great to walk over the bridge and then a train ride along the railway for a lunch stop. Drive back to Bangkok.

      Best day tour.
      A very good day. Collected from the hotel. A nice drive out to Ayutthaya which was remarkable. Down to the river for a lunch cruise back to Bangkok. Staff were all great.

      Bridge on the river kwai trip
      The whole trip is run well and the guide and driver are great. Trip on the train was nice and chilled and lunch was good. Long tail boat was ok ..photo on the water heading up to the bridge is nice. Only downside is the return to bangkok, it does take a while as bangkok roads are so busy

      We had a great guide! The bus was comfortable and the food on the boat was tasty. The boat could have stood for stronger AC, but we’re in a heat wave so it’s probably fine normally.

      This was a wonderful tour with several stops that were all insta worthy. The tour guide also takes your pictures if you’re travelling alone or even if you’re in a group. I recommend this tour. Definitely worth what we paid for.

      A great tour of Ayutthaya
      A well managed tour of a few of the Ayutthaya temples with a great history brought by our tour guide. The coach rides were very comfortable and we had a wonderful boat ride back into Bangkok while sitting on the front deck. Lunch was a tasty buffet of Thai food.

      Don't book this tour. It's not what it says.
      We had booked several tours through Viator prior to arrival in Asia. This was NOT worth what we paid. After receiving several emails about our tour, I thought it would be great. Nothing on WhatsApp the day of tour. We found our guide with a paper and my name on it. We had a large van and a driver, as well as a guide. We were unprepared for this. The drive from cruise port to the Grand Palace took 3 hours. The driver spent most of the time either on his phone or chatting up with the driver in their own language. And, they were loud! The driver would speed up and slow down, not a pleasant drive. We arrived at the Grand Palace (well, across the road and down a bit from the actual palace) Apparently, there was some type of ceremony that caused traffic to back up. When nearing the gate, the guide told my husband, who was wearing shorts, he would need to buy pants. He admitted it was his fault for not advising on this at the cruise terminal, where we met. He laughed. Also, he was a challenge to understand. He did know the Grand Palace, though. He was wanting to take lots of pictures of my husband and I and was angry when we kept telling him no. We were at the Palace for less than an hour. The guide asked about shopping and we said we were not looking for high end or junk. We are more impulse buyers than shoppers. We were looking forward to the market we had requested in the selection process. The guide decided we did not have enough time to go to the market (it was about noon and our onboard was 5:30PM) Instead, as he was busy on his phone, sending kissy face emojis, and speaking with the driver, they decided to take up to what was clearly a shop for tourists. Jewelry and junk. We browsed and when we went to find the guide, he was have a drink and chatting up a lady at the counter. All the way to Bangkok, we had no real shopping experience and no opportunity to have a Thai lunch. The guide insisted we head back. Again on the return, the driver and guide were talking and laughing. At one point, the guide explained to us that they get paid by the day not the hour. So, at the end of an 8 hour day, with allotment for lunch included in the 8 hours, they would not be paid extra. I guess the driver and the guide wanted to be done before the 8 hours. And, they were. The driver was much speedier on the return trip and we were back on board before 3PM. Guess we did have time to shop. This was 100% the worst tour and not worth even half what we paid. I will not recommend to anyone, not my clients and not to other travels.

      Great show with nice dinner
      The food was amazing, and they will refill the platter whenever needed. It was great to learn about Thai traditional dance and music.

      Interesting day viewing temple ruins
      We were picked up from our hotel in an air-conditioned coach and drove about an hour with some commentary along the way. It was an interesting experience, but a very hot, humid day walking amongst the ruins. We visited a few other sights in the area before driving to the river where we boarded a boat which served a delicious buffet lunch and cruised back to Bangkok, viewing many interesting sights along the way.

    Really disappointed with the whole experience tonight and completely spoiled the evening. To be perfectly honest, it was carnage from the start before even getting onto the boat. Chaos with no clear direction for where we were going or what we were doing. Was completely mis sold on a number of things from seating to what was included in the package. Was sat on the bottom level of the boat, had a view of the buffet which resembled feeding time at the zoo. There was zero service or attentiveness from staff, infact we had to flag staff down ourselves on a number of occasions just to try and get a drink. Got increasingly frustrated with what should have been a lovely evening. Tried to order a bottle of wine before the boat had even left and none available. Was left with spirits, beer or cocktails. My mojito was essentially just soda water with mint leaves. Expressed our disappointment to them which proved to be pointless. When we told them we weren’t paying for what little we had, all of sudden we had 4 staff chasing us to pay. There was never a problem with paying, always happy to pay for good service, and more so with great service. The point was, the service in general was terrible. We were completely ignored. I’m sure some really love the experience, I think if you have a seat on the top deck the experience is amazing. Much more atmosphere and ambience. I’d recommend you check that before booking. It certainly wasn’t worth the 2500 Baht per person we paid. There was 4 of us and you couldn’t have got us of the boat quick enough. Waste of an evening, simply paying for the neons on the boat. Wouldn’t recommend.

    An amazing way of celebrating my wife's 40th on February 29th: her verdict was "Best Birthday Ever".
    This cruise is fun, buzzy, colourful and memorable.
    The buffet was exceptional and plentiful in quantity, quality and variety, the live entertainment fabulously noisy and exciting, the views of the city from the boat enchanting.
    We loved it and would go again tonight if we could.

    Worth it! Great views of the grand palace, wat arun, a bridge (dunno what it's name is sorry). As well as a fantastic band who actually does a decent cover of bohemian rhapsody too. It was such a blast taking a look at all the views. We managed to score a seat at the front of the boat. I don't know if it is because trip.advisor get priority tickets or if you're in a pair you're more likely to be outside or what but when booking if I were you I'd try to get out the front of the boat or even request to be on the rooftop space if at all possible even if it costs extra somehow. WORTH ITS MONEY

    Told us our tickets were cancelled after we had travelled to Bangkok and arrived at check in. Rude and unhelpful staff. Received the cancellation email a day after the event. The cruise wasn’t actually cancelled though as we watched it sail away from the dock. On its return we spoke to some of the customers who said it was shambolic and the food and drinks service was very poor so not a big miss in the end. AVOID at all costs

    We had a fantastic time on the boat, sharing the experience with only one other family! We went for the 5.30pm sailing so we could see the actual sunset. Thank goodness! When we got off at 7pm the dock was packed, this would have made for a completely different experience.

    Food was a good spread, plenty for the 8 of us to enjoy. There was a guy playing a saxophone while we cruised, absolutely lovely.

    Only recommendation is that you pack your own drinks because a can of coke is 80 bhatt. We were given a glass of water when we sat down, but this wasn't refilled.

    We booked online which was really easy. On the day of the cruise, we went to River City early to get our stickers and were assigned seats outside on the deck so we got a very nice view of the buildings and sights during the cruise. The buffet dinner was also very good. The downside was that it rained and we had to go inside for a while until the rain was gone. This cruise was priced mid-range but the atmosphere was more relaxed and the entry to the boat was more orderly than the cheaper ones with so many people. We've tried the cheaper one before and this one is definitely better and worth the money.

    As the higher-end alternative to the Grand Pearl Cruise, the Wonderful Pearl really tries to up the luxury for its guests. The interior of the ship shouts modern Asian luxury, and food options are varied and abundant. They will not run out of food to serve! Coffee and tea are included but not juice or alcoholic drinks.

    The ship provides nice though very loud band music on its dining room stage, but those who prefer a quieter experience can stroll around on the upper deck. Seats are pre-assigned, but everyone is allowed to roam around the ship.

    There are no descriptions provided for the pretty sites the ship passes on the river, so families can choose to do some research beforehand if they wish to know about each site. Overall, a posh and relaxing experience. Great for a finale meal on the last night of a trip.

    I came here with plans to celebrate my parents 70th birthday. Brought our own special cake and told the waiter after we boarded. We waited for about 1.5 hours but nothing. My wife and I checked three times in between with answers telling us to just wait.
    After getting so fed up and annoyed, we complained again; then the waiters took us to the first floor, to a small seat for 4 (we alwere total 7). They brought back our cake, partially destroyed. The band was kind enough to squeeze in a birthday song for us, but too late, as everything was ruined for pur family already.

    Don't come here for important occasions. I suggest not to take any risk here. Thanks to today, everything was all terrible; food, service, music, everything. Will not recommend at all.

    I tried the boat dinner while I was in Bangkok, as I have never done it before.
    The experience was interesting for me. First, I took the boat service from the hotel where I stay to another boat station where the represntative of the dinner cruise waited on the pick up location. And they took me to the minivan with other guests. Then the driver drove us to the main drop off area where was inside the mall by the river. Then they put the sticker on to my cloth based on the sitting arrangement. When the boarding time, they divided by the color of the sticker they put on.
    My sticker was Yellow, and my table was on the top outside deck near by main stage, which was soo cool 😍😁
    On the way to the boat, there was photo session with the 2 people who wore Thai traditional dress. And I bought the picture for my souvenir by the end of the cruise. It was just THB 200/piece, soo cheap 😂

    And to be honest I did not even know because it was arranged by my local friend in Bangkok (good things I have - friends everywhere 😄😄😄)

    * They have about 4 buffet stations (1 on each side of the boat - 1 at the back for outdoor - 1 in the middle deck) and I can go to any buffet station. The food pretty much the same, just buffet station in the middle deck had more variety of sushi for sushi lovers.
    Food quality was good, Thai cuisine taste still original. And they served some variety of international dishes too.
    * Entertainment was good too. They sing variety of songs, but wondering why they did not sing Thai song , lol 😂😂😂
    * Scenery from the river during the night was totally different. As I mostly explore Bangkok on day time. View was incredible, the bridge, the palace, the temple, the lights, and many things were just great.

    Overall experience was great, specialy include pick up and drop.
    However, the price was not include with the drinks, but they provided ice water on free flow.

    You spend this much money, it should at least include soft drinks or juice. No this does not! There are cheaper cruises on this river that have more variety and include drinks. I can understand charging for alcohol but come on.. at least include more than just water. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice boat but you are certainly paying for the atmosphere not the food. Find another boat to go on. Yes I have been on other dinner cruises and they have been better and cheaper.
