Watch out for tour guide scam
May 2019 • Family
We enjoyed the experience and are glad we did it. However, everything is much more expensive and they are very pushy in selling you stuff so it can be overwhelming. Best to go with the attitude of enjoying the experience than to shop. The tour guy was nice until he tried to overcharge us for a small local boat by 400B. BEWARE! He said the price advertised was for a shared boat but when we managed to shake him, the lady explain this was not true. At this point he lost our trust. But we still enjoyed the experience.

Floating market half day private tour
We did this tour with Gift our guide. Private pick up and journey to the markets. A fast speed boat into the markets which was brilliant fun and like something out of James Bond! Then we paid extra to get a row boat round the markets. Really good experience and glad we did it! It’s quite full on so it’s definitely good to have someone who knows the scene and keep you right! Also stopped at a market and coconut and orchid farm which was amazing. Gift was a great guide and we would highly recommend.

Waste of an entire day
Sep 2018 • Couples
Left at 7:30am for a 70 mile trip one way bus trip. This bus took us to an area full of other busses and dropped us off at a dock full of large engined canoes. These long boats flew through some mangroves and canals that were full of trash. Floating Market had some yummy coconut ice cream and sticky rice. Lots of trinkets and souvenirs for sale. Waste of a day and $$ on a Toursit trap at best.

Sep 2018 • Family
It is good with children for different experiences, but not very an entertainment for adults. basically, it's selling holiday stuff.
Kids liked the boat trip more than the market itself.
Anyway, you still can go there.

what an experience
Aug 2018
It is an experience that you will never forget.Its amazing to see all these little boats on the river and all are selling things.Hustle and bustle.Lots of haggling in price,a must,with the traders on either side of the river.
You must try sticky rice and mango...People are friendly and everyone will try and get you to buy but once you say no they leave you alone.Loved the experience.

Fantastic Customer Service
Jun 2018 • Family
I am giving this a 5/5 simply because of the customer service. First off, you aren't just going to the floating markets. On the way to the floating market you stop by a coconut farm and then go to a longtail boat and then the floating markets. Like the others said, once you get to the floating market you do have to pay for your own paddle boat (150 baht per person).

The market itself was not amazing and not a true floating market. It's more like tourists on boats going to the stalls versus the other way around.

What made this trip amazing was the customer service. On our way to the coconut farm, my mom asked about roasted coconuts and a rare coconut that she had heard when she was in Vietnam and they went out of their way to help her find what she wanted.

I would definitely do another tour with this company but probably not to Damnoen.

Was ok
We did a half day morning tour to Damneon Saduak floating market. It was an early start with a 6:20 am pick up. We were transferred to a big bus by taxi. The bus had plenty empty seats so we were comfortable. It is a rather long drive (2 hrs) so it can get boring.

The market was very busy and bustling. Do be honest there is nothing spectacular here. In fact it is probably better at one of Bangkok night markets.

Our tour guide and the tour company were very professional and I would highly recommend them.

Dear Lester, Thank you for your kind words of Tour East and of your tour guide. Totally understand that each person has his or her own tastes and I do regret that you did not feel the Damnern Saduak Floating Market was to your liking and regret if you went there expecting to find “spectacular”. ‘Very different’ might be a more appropriate description for the place, as it is certainly very different than Bangkok night markets or markets in western countries. Kind regards, Tour East

Floating market must see but overrated
Visited the Floating Markets as it’s a must do activity in Bangkok. The tour guide was initially helpful and had information. However, there is a stop at an orchid farm which is more of a ploy to get tourist money than anything. Yes the long tail boat ride was included - but the boat through the market was not (& that was only 15 minutes through a small part). There is nothing special about the products or food and actually everything was much pricier than the goods and food found around the temples and Grand Palace. Guide didn’t speak on way back - she didn’t seem to like that we were done 15-20 minutes early with “shopping”.

Sorry that you did not completely see the Damern Saduak floating market. Although it has been in operation for many, many years and is still a ‘genuine’ market, it is very much a place to give the visitor a feeling, or an insight, into the floating markets of Thailand. Thank you for echoing some details in the description of this tour. As it is very popular with the tourists, the products are largely geared towards the out-of-towers. That would only natural, I’m sure you agree! (And I think the sellers there would say “simple common sense”). That said, the food is safe to eat yet authentic. For your info, the stop at the orchid farm is not a ploy to grab tourist money. This tour must have a very early departure from the hotel so the location and facilities at the orchid farm make for an ideal place to stop on the way to the floating markets. It is both a Comfort Stop AND a welcome place to buy a little snack if you didn’t have time for breakfast at the hotel. Yes, a tourist can buy souvenirs here too but Tour East is not on the take at all.
