Owner description: Look for Small Teak Boat Canal Adventure on yahoo to find our website for more info. Please email or call to reserve before you come down to our office. If you are looking for an authentic Thai thing to do, our canal tour is the one! Because boats on canals were used as transport traditionally, many interesting sites are along the water way. Our tour stops at: Morning Fresh Produce Market(Weekend altered with a canal-side floating market), Orchid Nursery in Green Rush, Hidden Forest Temple, Traditional Thai House (the Artist's House). We can also arrange custom tours around water ways.

Anan was quite the tour leader! We took a private tour for four adults (myself, husband, step-daughter and her husband) for four hours in the afternoon. This is a most brilliant tour to take to explore a different side to Bangkok. It’s most unlike the hustle and the bustle of the centre. Floating down the canals is like being transported to the jungle! You will see a more traditional side of life. Small boats peddling food for the locals, an artists area, a magnificent and quiet temple replete with a stunning emerald tower inside, orchid farm, traditional houses on stilts, hungry catfish and we even spotted a moniker lizard (huge and glorious). But really, the day was made by the guide, Anan. He couldn’t have entertained us more, he couldn’t have more informative or kinder. He was just a great all round guy who also had fabulous English skills. At the end of the tour he went out of his way to guide us to the right sky train station to get a boat to our next destination. He even got off the train and showed us the correct exit etc. A brilliant brilliant day. Thanks Anan. He speaks words of wisdom. Let him be. (-:

Great sightseeing trip today with Marisa our guide. Up and out early to get to the floating market which was lovely lots to buy and see. Then in to the temple which is years old and had some lovely free food. Then on to the railway station to see the train pass by very close up. The driver and Marissa were very nice and knowledgeable. Ended the trip with lunch by the river.
Highly recommend

Our guide Nui took us to the temple, orchid farms, and lunch. She was very knowledgeable about the temples,Buddhist beliefs in Thailand, and told us the stories of the puppet theater. She was patient and kind. Our boat driver Gob (no idea of the spelling). Did an excellent job and we stopped at the Forrest temple where his family lived. Really loved this tour.

Hi Gunnar H,

Thank you so much for the excellent review you wrote for us. I think your guide name is Anan. He is a gentleman, but I don't think he change his name to Anna yet.

Thank you again for taking our tour! Please come back again with your friends and family, next time you are in the Bangkok area.

It was a shame as I have done this tour before and it's a full on 6 hours! It pee'ed down all day. We were given basic water proofs to wear but it was very wet and got freezing so we opted out of the theatre display at the end of the tour as we would have to of waited 2 hours to see it as we hurried our river tour due to the weather. In other words do this tour when sunny, we should of been allowed to cancel without loss as I ended up with a chest infection.

However in the sun this is a fab day. You get to see a different Bangkok and how the other people live away from the city. Great fun too!

Hi Kris B,

We are very sorry that we could not cancel the tour due to the light rain that we had on that day. I was on another tour myself and it was just light rain the whole day! We hope you still had a blast on the canals in Thonburi. We have already ordered the guide and the boat for the day and we did not want them to go back to their family disappointed that they don't have work for the rest of that day.

Well, as long as you guys are happy while you are cruising the canals. Our guides, and the boat guys are happy to service you as well. Keep smiling in the Land of Smile!

Thank you again for taking our boat tour rain or shine, and please come back again when you come back to Bangkok, Thailand.
