What people are saying about Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Overall rating

4.5
(3,222 reviews)

The trip is 100% worth it and above all the price paid for the activity, our guide (Aiki, I don't know what he is, write the truth) was telling us curiosities about the country along the way, it is true that sometimes It was a little difficult to understand him but it wasn't a big problem either, he was very friendly throughout the journey and they gave you very cold bottles of water.

Let's see, this excursion is a touristy one that you will love, but for that price it includes you, pick-up at the hotel, a stretch on the train to see the market from it, then get off and watch it pass by and then go to the floating market, I It seems amazing. Also the guide (Peni) was very very nice. The truth is that people in Thailand are super friendly.

Great organization. You arrive at the station by train. The guide recommended excellent places. Even at the floating market, everything is great.

It was very good. Tammi is a very funny female guide. She also told us a lot about the country and its people.

Kitty our guide was excellent, had an amazing day would recommend this trip
