Guide was soft spoken so you have to really pay attention. Was a good tour and glad I did this tour after the temples in Bangkok -
Great short tour!

My husband and I had taken many long tours on our trip to SE Asia so we decided to opt for a 1/2 day tour of the grand palace, emerald Buddha and reclining Buddha. This trip was perfect! Our tour guide Suki spoke great English and took several photos for us. He was also very comical and full of jokes. It was a great tour and recommend it for people looking for a quick tour of the palace!
Excellent company to deal with....

We prepaid for a half day trip of the Grand Palace in Bangkok with this organization Travstore Travel. There was a problem on our end as far as transportation was concerned and we were forced to cancel our tour shortly before we were to take it. They were most understanding and professional in the way they dealt with us. We received a full refund from them and they were apologetic in regards to the situation. Based on my experience, this agency is very honest and I would not hesitate to do business with them again.
