Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keo Guided Tour, Bangkok

Visit 2 fantastic Bangkok Buddhist temples on our guided tour. We'll see the amazing Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, known as the Temple of Emerald Buddha, it is regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in the whole of Thailand.

The Grand Palace Guided Tour

In the morning we'll visit the famous Grand Palace, where you'll find many different buildings and monuments inside this fantastic compound built by King Rama I in 1782 and the centre of power in the region for more than 150 years.

The Temple of Emerald Buddha Guided Tour

Located in the historic centre of Bangkok, Wat Phra Kaew is regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand. Carved from a single block of Jade stone, The Emerald Buddha is located inside the temple and dates back to the 15th Century AD.

No one is allowed to touch the Emerald Buddha other then the King of Thailand, so three times a year a seasonal cloak around the Buddha is changed by the King himself in a very important ritual.

Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew Tour
Just got back from a fabulous holiday to Bangkok with my husband and 2 young children.

We booked 6 tours in total for our 3 week holiday in Bangkok as there was so much choice on the website we foudn it hard to pick!

In retrospect we're so glad for every tour we booked through Bangkok Excursions, there tour guides are attentive and very likeable. The prices were also far better than we had seen elsewhere which is obviously a major bonus.

The Grand palace tour was brilliant, a great balance of history and fun. We also saw a lot more of the temple than I believe we would have if we just went by ourselves.

Plan to return to Bangkok in the not too distant future and will be using Bangkok Excursions again for all the other tours and excursions we wanted to do!

Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew Tour
We were recommended Bangkok Excursions by a friend who used them last year and had been impressed by their service. The booking system was great, the staff very helpful (like most Thais they cant do enough for you) and the prices were some of the best we had found too.

The tour to Bangkok's Grand Palace was our favourite of the 4 excursions we had booked with Bangkok Excursions, you got to see so much without ever feeling rushed or too busy. Our guide was amazing (big thank you to you), especially with our younger children.

Will definitely be using Bangkok Excursions again
