You'll be picked up from your centrally located Bangkok hotel and travel by long-tail cruise along the Bangkok canals. Travel through exotic flora and picturesque canal houses, before joining a converted rice barge cruise on the Chao Phraya river. All you need to do on this tour is sit back, relax and take in the amazing Thai scenery. Soft drinks and local fruits will be served on-board.
The rivers and canals around Bangkok serve as a natural highway for many local Thai people going about their everyday business. The people of Bangkok still depend on the waterways to transport their merchandise, in particular rice, as the canals are linked to the rice fields.

This tour is a must in Bangkok.
Prompt pick up. Tour is very imformative and sights amazing.
The staff on the rice barge are lovely and the selection of fruits that are offered as afternoon tea are delicious and well presented.
My family really enjoyed this tour. We have used viator in the past and they have proved to be a very reliable and professional company.

Fantastic tour! Confirmed to hotel so no worrying if they would turn up. Picked up promptly and dropped at pier. Passed over to tour guide who was the loveliest man you could ever meet. A real gem! Loved the sights and very informative. Had the tour to ourselves as a group of 4 so felt like VIPs as we passed a few boats rammed with people! Felt guilty as we couldn't eat enough of the fruit buffet to do it justice as there was enough to feed a boat full.
The river was not dirty as some reviews would lead you to believe.
A lovely relaxing afternoon and a break from padding the streets and shops. Worth every baht!
