As you wander the streets of Bangkok it is not unusual to see monks adorned in their maroon and yellow colors walking along the road and it should come as no surprise as Thailand has over 26,000 Wat's (the local name for temple).

Not too long and jam packed with interesting sights
Greg_D, 26-09-2022
I had a great experience with my personal guide who was full of information and took enough time at each site for me to be able to have a good look around. I learned a lot of history and have some good memories to go along with my photos
Tum tum was the best
Kanita_M, 06-07-2022
This was an incredible experience. The temples were gorgeous and Tum Tum was amazing. She was very well versed in all the rich history and extremely attentive to me. I did start to feel ill because of the heat so definitely drink alot of water and bring a fan if possible. Tum Tum was prepared with an umbrella for me. I highly recommend doing this wonderful tour.
Introduction to old Bangkok temples
Au_K, 16-07-2022
This tour includes 3 temples in the old town of Bangkok including the famous Wat Pho with the Reclining Buddha. There is a lot of history involved including the different types of Buddha statues. The guide had a bit of problem expressing herself in English - this was the only drawback.
Very good tour
