Worst tour during 2 week trip to Bangkok
Feb 2020
Having taken previous Urban Adventures tours, we joined this tour with high expectations. Based on the tour description, we were expecting to "explore local art, food and music to get a sense of the Siam that was, the Buddhism that is, and the traditions and contemporary coolness that make modern-day Bangkok such an exciting city to see!" Instead, what we received was a tour aimed at 10 year olds.
After meeting our guide, we piled into tuk tuks and stopped at Mae Prapa shop to taste pancakes. There was no interaction with the shop owner or explanation of what made this dish so special. Back in the tuk tuks, we randomly passed the Grand Palace wall before stopping at Wat Mahathat Yuwaratrangsarit temple where we were told that the planned monk visit was not available as there were exams going on. We walked through the Wat, again with no explanation as to why this temple was important or how the monks used this space, got back in the tuk tuk, rode passed the Grand Palace again before arriving at a substitute wat for our guided meditation. After sitting and waiting for about 15 minutes for our monk-instructor (with no explanation about the delay or what to expect), we met our substitute monk. His English was barely comprehensible and his explanation about Buddhism and meditation less so. We then sat for 20 minutes in silence. One of our group was admonished for opening his eyes, and another for adjusting their position. End of guidance.
We jumped backed into the tuk tuk for a visit to the museum of Siam. As the museum was closing shortly, we raced through an exhibit highlighting Western visitors to Thailand (think Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson), saw a short pop up video of Thai history (geared to 4 year olds) and then were made to sit in a classroom and pretend we were children learning Thai! Total waste of time.
Back in the tuk tuk, and off to the food part of our tour. Given the general excellence of Thai street food, our tour choices were pathetic. The pork balls had no taste, dim sum is hardly Thai street food, milk toast was just odd. Once again there was no explanation as to why these stops or how this type of food/ingredient was representative of Thai food culture. Our final stop of the evening was a bar which served bad cocktails and played live music (but not while we were there). Instead, our guide showed us videos of his band playing somewhere.
In summary, this tour was a total waste of time and money. Based on this experience, I would be very hesitant about booking another Urban Adventure tour.

I am very sorry to hear that you had a negative experience and appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback. We pride ourselves on listening to our guests as we understand you've invested your hard-earned money and vacation time for this tour; therefore, your review was quite alarming to our team as a whole. While I admit we dropped the ball in this instance I'm determined to use your valuable feedback and make sure this does not happen again. I have acted on your review and spoken in detail to the guide. We will be investing in retraining, to guarantee the relevant and important background historical and cultural insights are shared and facilitate the local interactions we expect our guides to initiate within each experience. The street food vendors available on this tour will be reviewed to ensure interaction with vendors and explanations of the history of the street food provided is clearly explained and food standard is at a premium. If we determine an included meal does not meet these standards, we will make sure they are removed from the tour. With reference to the Buddhist monk interaction on this trip, we welcome your feedback and will address your comments directly with the temple. This has been a highlight for many of our guests, facilitating contact with a Buddhist monk, the opportunity to learn mindfulness and ask questions about Buddhism. We at Bangkok Urban Adventures would like to welcome you back as a guest on another Bangkok Urban Adventure tour free of charge to show you we deliver 5-star tours to our guests. We do hope that you will keep travelling with Urban Adventures in the future as it is our mission to always deliver a fantastic local experience.

AMAZING - best afternoon/evening ever!

Thank you to Guide A, who had us zooming around Bangkok in tuk tuks to see all the very best sights and eats and drinks of Bangkok. Had a wonderful day, highly recommend this tour if you want a bit of everything - it's jam packed but there are well-earned cocktails at the end if you want :-0)

Wonderful introduction to Thailand
The tour was very enjoyable and relaxing. Our guide Mon was extremely friendly and informative. Highlights were the fabulous tuk tuk ride, Wat Mahathat Yuwaratrangsarit temple visit and guided meditation with a Monk, Museum of Siam, visit to Chao Praya River to hear about the history of Phra Sumen Fort. Wonderful food stalls featuring crispy pancakes, pork balls,yummy dumplings and the Thai’s love of sweet bread and butterfly pea milk. We ended the night with a visit to a secret bar called Tep bar and enjoyed a delicious cocktail, Wonderful experience Mon was very helpful in arranging our lift back to the hotel and making the adventure fun. Would love to experience more tours with Urban Adventures. Added bonus Nancia from the office joined us and was able to add interesting information about the Thai people and culture.

So Ridiculously Bad It Was Comical-- Worst Tour Ever
Oct 2019
Just as the title says, this tour was so ridiculously bad the other tourists and I were laughing about it. I’ll just describe what happened, and quote from the amusingly misleading Urban Adventures description for added effect.

Please note the tour did not follow the itinerary on the website which, by the way, contradicts itself- the meeting place is by the museum, but the first stop is the pancake shop- so which is it? Anyways...

Our first stop was the Museum of Siam where we spent 1.5+ hours (it felt a lot longer...) going through a series of bizarre, highly uninformative, boring pop-art exhibits about Lady Gaga, a weird beauty pageant dress, instant noodles, etc. Having spent the previous two weeks traveling around and learning about Thailand, I came away from the Museum of Siam feeling as though I had learned absolutely nothing about Thailand.

The badness might have been partly due to our guide; a flamboyant self-described Lady Gaga super fan who seems to be having a personal crisis or something to that effect. Throughout the tour, he was on edge, frantic and at moments on the cusp of hysteria. At the museum he kept making lame awkward jokes about his age (midlife crisis?), and spent a tone of time talking about the aforementioned weird dress, Lady Gaga, instant noodles, etc. He didn't seem to be very concerned with what his customers were interested in/ learning about.

After the museum we went to the Thai crispy pancake shop. On the Urban Adventures website it says: "Behind the Scenes Access: Stop by Mae Prapa shop, one of the oldest and most famous makers of Thai crispy pancakes, for a private tasting and to learn the history of this shop from an heir of the owner."

There was no private tasting or anything “behind the scenes” for that matter. We just went in like every other customer, ate one or two samples, the guide gave a quick blurb, then we left. There were some employees sitting around. Maybe one of them was the “heir to the owner”. Who knows, we didn’t talk to them.

On the website it says that, after visiting the pancake store, the tour will “catch a panoramic view of the Chao Praya River and the historical fortress of Phra Sumen Fort. Your local guide will tell you about the fort...”

This didn’t happen. It then says: “We'll ride past Rattanakosin Island, home to the Grand Palace and Wat Pho (the Reclining Buddha Temple), to kick off our historical discovery of the city.”

OK, so what? You have to go inside to see anything (which we didn’t). There was no “historical discovery of the city” to kick off. We didn’t visit any historical sites.

From the pancake shop we went back to the museum so the tour guide could pick up his stuff (or something), then went to meditate in a dark dingy basement (more on that in a sec). On the way, I rode with the guide. Since he wasn’t talking or doing anything I asked the guide what his impressions were studying in the USA (he’d mentioned it to us earlier when talking about how old he was). The guide said he liked the USA, then proceeded to rant about Donald Trump and then, mostly, about why Trump’s wife isn’t sophisticated. Regardless of one’s political attitudes, it was bizarre and really unprofessional.

Anyways, about the meditation place, the Urban Adventures website says: “Visit Wat Mahathat Yuwaratrangsarit temple...”

We didn’t visit the temple. We went though a side entrance to a random building, then down into the aforementioned dark dingy basement where the website said we would “...get an exclusive chance to practice a universal technique of mindfulness or anger management from an expert Buddhist monk.”

So a really condescending monk came, took a minute to (badly) explain meditation 101 (all the info he gave is readily available online), asked us to close our eyes, then got up and left, loudly slamming the door on the way out! Not only was there no guided meditation, the monk didn’t even hang out to meditate with us. Ten minutes later the monk came back, recited some more guru jargon of which there was nothing “exclusive”, then we left.

From there we went to get street food. On the Urban Adventures website it says: “Local Interactions: Meet local street food vendors and try to haggle in Thai for the price of some food — don't worry, your tour guide will teach you some useful Thai words!”

None of this happened. The guide didn’t teach us any Thai words and there was no interactive experience, haggling or otherwise. On the website it also says: “Walk through one of the most famous street food markets and sample local dishes.”

The guide took us to what looked like a normal street and rushed us around, seemingly at random, buying us small portions of low-quality Chinese street food. For example, our first stop was a Chinese bun shop where we were given three buns to split between three people, i.e. I had to cut each bun into three pieces. We also got one pork ball stick and one medium sized bowl of Chinese soup to split between three people.

The exception to the small portion rule was the Chinese fried dough sticks and green sugar dipping sauce which the guide bought (relatively) large quantities of, probably because it was the cheapest thing, and aggressively insisted (which was funny b/c he’s a pretty feminine dude) we eat even when we clearly told him we didn’t want to.

The surreal lameness culminated with a visit to the Mont Nomsod store, which is basically a sweet shop for small children. There we dined on white bread covered in more sugary green stuff to the tune of hundreds of screaming children. Feeling ill from all the fried dough, sugar, green stuff, etc. I suggested (in an admittedly this-tour-sucks kinda way) that I get a coffee. The guide became hysterical (in a funny way) and refused even though the coffee was much cheaper then the weird purple colored sugar drink he ended up giving me (which I didn’t/ couldn’t drink).

The whole thing was exceptionally bad for 1) how unhealthy/ low-quality the food was 2) what a huge rip off it is when one considers how cheap the food is versus the tour cost 3) the guide’s strange behavior. It’s even stranger/ more idiotic when you consider that Bangkok is full of street food areas. The guide could have easily taken us to any one of those and helped us buy food.

The last stop was a halfway decent bar which I left early so I could catch a Muay Thai fight, i.e. something interesting, related to Thailand, and much cheaper/better than this lame tour. The guide actually helped me tell the tuk tuk guy where to go! Though he left it to me to haggle down the initial ridiculous foreigner price...

So to recap: we spent what felt like hours at a lame museum being lectured to about Lady Gaga and instant noodles; ate a small sample of Thai pancakes; spent 10 minutes sitting with our eyes closed in a dark dingy basement; ran around being force feed disgusting deep-fried sugar food culminating in white bread with green sugar slim, then wrapped the night up with a halfway decent bar (probably the tour guide or his boss's friend's bar).

There was no “hidden history” or “food culture”. There was no “local food” besides the pancakes and white bread-green slim thing. You could easily do all of the above on your own (assuming you would even want to) and save a ton of time, frustration and money. Speaking of money, the tour price is about $80. Calculating for the tuk-tuk, museum, minuscule amounts of low-quality street food, etc. Not too mention how little actual work the guide did, I have to say this is a pretty profitable scheme.

Urban Adventures should be embarrassed, particularly for the highly misleading tour description. Did someone from your staff go on and then approve this tour? If so, how? It’s amazing to me that this tour is being featured on the NYT Journey’s page. I don’t know how/ why that is, but it reflects very, very badly on NYT Journey...Also, I would be very skeptical of any good review this tour receives. Even on a good day, with a halfway decent guide, this tour would be complete garbage... I noticed every time a bad review goes up a five star review suddenly appears... Very strange.

Anyways, it was the worst tour I’ve ever been on. I guess that's something...

An interesting take on an amazing city
Nov 2019 • Solo
Having done several tours in various cities before, I have to say this was one of the more interesting variations. The tour focuses on showing various aspects of the city and culture that make Bangkok so great. Our tour guide 'A' (fantastic tour guide) was full of so much information and smiles and really made this tour fantastic. Got to see plenty of sites throughout the city, sampled plenty of treats, enjoyed a meditation session with a monk, and just had an excellent time touring the city!

WORST Tour I've ever taken
Oct 2019
What a disappointment! This tour was tagged as one that explores "local art, food and history". It didn't even come close. Here's how it went. Did not go to Phra Sumen Fort. Headed directly to the Museum of Siam where we spent 1-1/2 hours "decoding Thainess" which included mulling over the Thainess of the dress that Miss Thailand wore when she won the 1988 Miss Universe competition, looking at video of Michael Jackson (huh?) and manniquins of Lady Gaga and Ronald McDonald in wai poses. We stopped for a snack (a couple of Thai pancakes which were delicious but the size of a mini taco) before heading to the Buddhist temple. We did not visit the temple but went immediately to the meditation center in the basement where a monk talked to us for 15 minutes about how to meditate, then left us alone for 15 minutes to meditate. (I paid $85 for this? How about some guided meditation?) We were now 2-1/2 hours into the tour and finally getting to the food! Our first stop was a steamed bun restaurant where we each got one bun (aren't steamed buns chinese?), then went across the street where we were offered donuts dipped in custard. (Can I please have my entree before dessert?) Next stop, was a place that served us four dime sized meatballs on a stick, and a bowl of soup that we had to share between three people. Our final food stop was at a restaurant that served thick slabs of white toast with green custard topping. This was my dinner? Where were the Pads, the Sai Ooah, the Gai Tod, the Roti, the mango sticky rice? All the street foods I'd seen at other markets in Thailand? This tour definitely did not offer the "local food" selection I expected. Our final stop was the TEP bar where we had one of the local mixed drinks and listened to traditional Thai music. That was the highlight of the tour. My recommendation, skip the tour and spend your $85 at the TEP bar where you can also have a decent Thai meal.
