Bangkok Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local

Want to really feel the bustling and energetic soul of Bangkok? Tours that we offer get you up close with and personal with our city, all with a local expert guide. From exploring our history on a Bangkok cycling tour, to wandering the back streets of some authentic local markets, to taking in the beauty of local temples by tuk-tuk! This city is an explosion for your senses, a mix of sights, sounds and smells.  A city that we love and can't wait to share with you. Take a Bangkok day tour with a difference!

Bangkok tours open up a contradicting, yet fascinating dichotomy of being a high-tech bustling metropolis, with a strong adherence to rich cultural traditions. Set on the Chao Phraya River, you can view the boats hustle, bobble and meander its people and produce along its waters, while the iconic tuk-tuks and 30,000 taxis carry others through the vibrant Bangkok streets. Be sure to check out some of the experiential Bangkok tours we have on offer.

Age old customs are maintained in stark contrast to the modern skyscrapers and futuristic overland metro system. Saffron robed monks still wander the streets of a busy morning, some still living in simple stilt houses on the river. A sprawling city, most Bangkok sightseeing tours only touch the surface of what this 1,500 square kilometre city has beneath the surface. With more than 10 million people calling it home, it is one of the worlds largest. Be sure to have your camera handy when you tour Bangkok. And, if you time things well, you could end up in Bangkok for Songkran, the Thai new year festival. It's one of the most vibrant times of year in Bangkok, and a great time to visit.


If you're short on time, here's what we recommend if you only have 24 hours in Bangkok

I had a great morning out with my guide, Gof. I found out all sorts of things about Thai history and culture and saw some important sights as well as little surprises that I would never have found on my own. Thanks Gof!

Wawa was a fantastic guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. She was very knowledgeablenand pleasant. Our only coment was the tour didn't finish at the start point so we had to get a tuktuk back, so this information would be useful perhaps.

Exceeded my expectations! I really enjoyed it. Bo was lovely and as it was just the two of us, it didn't feel like the typical regimented organized tour. Thanks so much!
