Does the tour visit popular Bangkok tourist sites?

We pride ourselves in being an alternative to the standard tourist experience by taking our customers “off the beaten path”  to show them the REAL Bangkok.  As such, our tours do not go to typical mass tourism attractions like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Jim Thompson House, etc.  We go behind the scenes into the local communities to places that are typically inaccessible to the average traveler.  Please do not be concerned about duplicating location visits on your own during the rest of your time in Bangkok.
