Beautiful sunset on the lake
Prompt pick up from my hotel. Stopped at a lotus farm, very pretty. Made our way to the small boat and started the tour through the lake. Eye opening to see how these people live in this floating village. Finally, onto the Tara boat where we were warmly welcomed and were able to order drinks and mingle with the other guests. Dinner buffet was ready very quickly and was tasty. Sunset stole the show. Transportation was provided back to the hotel.

A must do.
Really worth to do this excursion, even when we didn't see the real sunset due to cloudy wheater. Our guide Billy, explained a lot, and the visit of the floating village was also very interesting. Food and drinks were fine for me. I really recommend to do this. For me it was the only excursion I don't feel ripped of.

Unpleasant & unworthy trip
Dec 2019 • Family
It was utterly unacceptable service. Firstly, the tour guide was not courteous nor respectable towards us. His attitude and behaviour towards us was borderline disrespect able. We were running late from a previous excursion. We rang ahead to our hotel, letting them know our situation and alerted the hotel that if the bus was there on time, to let the bus know of our running late. However, as we returned from our previous excursion, the tour bus was late in picking us up. When the bus arrived and we boarded, the tour guide shouted at us for being late when they themselves were late in picking us up. This behaviour and attitude is not acceptable.

Additionally, on the way back from the lake for drop offs, we were asked to walk back to our hotel on foot. We were told the bus couldn’t fit through our street. This is not an acceptable excuse. The bus fit through fine when picking us up, and we saw several of the same sized buses coming through our hotel street that night. Dropping us off at the middle of a busy roundabout at night and telling us to walk back to our hotel when we were not all that familiar with the streets is totally inexcusable and unacceptable.

Secondly, the tour could do without the crocodile and lotus farms. It was a complete waste of time, as we only spent five minutes there before being rushed off backed to the boat. If we are to admire and appreciate the tour locations, being rushed from location to location is not acceptable.

Thirdly, as the members of the tour are split between the top and bottom decks of the boat; those on the bottom decks could not hear the guide’s comments and introductions. Additionally, why were there two tour guides on the boat on the way to the sunset? Whatever the second tour guide was saying on the top deck, those on the bottom deck were left out. The boat was too loud and noisy for those on the bottom to hear anything.

In summary, this was an unpleasant trip that could not be enjoyed in any way and not worth the time or money.

yes i know what happened,actually we where spot on time,at your hotel, but we had other guests to pick up,when you are running late it puts our program out and we like to pick up on time,regardless the tour guide than went to pick up other guests and return to your hotel,so no we where not late at all,we received no notification from your hotel or any one else that you where running late, we normally pick up in mini vans or cars but as you where running late we where forced to use a mini bus and yes the police do have some street closed to the mini buses at night, i will chat to our guides but they do try hard to accomadate everyone,and most people thankfully are on time and enjoy the tour

An interesting, eye-opening and beautiful tour!
Dec 2019
This was a great tour and I am glad I did it. It was well organised with a very informative tour guide. It was great to see the floating village and the evening buffet with free drinks was just lovely! We were even able to take a drink on the boat trip back to land!

My only recommendation for improvement would be to spend more time on the boat with the crocodiles as we didn't have much time there.

Overall it was a great experience!

Ps - the pick-up and drop-off service was very convenient! It meant that there was nothing to worry about!

Dec 2019
We went to a lotus farm and crocodile farm but did not get to explore the floating villages. The food was not that great but the beautiful sunset made up for it. The canals were dirty with trash everywhere.

Surprisingly Wonderful Sunset dinner
Dec 2019
Despite the pick up being 10 minutes late, our tour guide Hoi won the group over with his good humour and comprehensive knowledge of the areas along the way. We stopped at a lotus farm which was good for a few photos and then on to the wharf, which was crowded with tour buses and we thought we would end up fighting for buffet dinner. However we boarded our own boat. The water level is really low in the river and there is plastic pollution from the floating villages having been located here in high rain season. Once out on the lake we stopped at the restaurant/crocodile 'farm'. Sad to see the crocodiles in such small enclosures and the children with adorned pythons being paraded. A short boat ride took us to the Queen Tara, and what a beauty she is! Unlimited drinks, beautiful views and seating on both lower and upper decks, offering the best view of the sunset. Unhurried and friendly service. Buffet dinner was ample and tasty. We left with some of the most memorable photos and memories. Definitely worth the money!

Very nice tour
Dec 2019 • Friends
The booking process and communication with the company was great. There were only 6 of us on this tour and was excellent to have a small group. Others met up
With us later on the boat but still not crowded. The tour was well organized. My only issue was that I had a bit of a hard time understanding the guide’s English at times
