Frequently Asked Questions

What time and where do your tours start?

The start time is up to you, and all of our tours include collection and return to your central Bangkok hotel (or other central Bangkok location). In the case of collection from tram stations in central Bangkok, there is a surcharge of 20 euros, and if you wish to be collected from outside central Bangkok, please contact us for pricing. We recommend an early start for a full day tour of 7 hours or more and you can visit our Chauffeur Service page if you would like an exclusive transport option.

Will we get out of the car to see places of historic importance, take photos etc...?

Yes! Your tour guide will lead you through some of Bangkok and Thailand’s most fascinating historic sites, as well as take you to see some of the city’s most beautiful panoramic vistas.

Can I tour on Sundays or is everything closed?

All of Bangkok’s main sites are open on Sunday and you will have the added advantage of the city’s busy financial centre being much quieter than on weekdays.

If you plan on touring outside of Bangkok, almost all of the historic destinations we cover on our Bangkok day tours are open on Sunday.
