If you have enough time in Bangkok to do a full day tour outside of Bangkok this is a great tour. Ayutthaya is an impressive site. We visited at least 6 or 7 locations in this area throughout the day. The guide Siri was really good about both giving us history as well as bringing in stories about the Royals and the history of the various palaces. He also very patiently took lots of pictures of the 3 couples that were on this tour. The driver was also very safe and good. The one thing that I know is outside the purview of the guide or this company is Thailand/Ayutthaya and UNESCO needs to stop the riding of elephants around this area. It was very disturbing to see the elephants who were in bad shape walking around. Also, in this day and age of Coronavirus not sure a buffet lunch is still a great idea. Maybe box lunches should be in order until this all passes. I would definitely recommend this company to do a tour of Ayutthaya.
I booked this tour last minute in December and I was not disappointed. The guide, Bimp, was very friendly and taught the group all about Thai and Buddhist culture. I was a solo traveller and I found the tour to be interesting, and I met some lovely people. 100% recommend booking this tour!
Very well organised- from the location of the meeting point, itinerary explained to the drop off point. Our guide Jenny (nickname Oh) was a delight. Very thorough, knowledgable and extremely friendly.
The guide was super friendly. It was angreat way to know more about Thailand history and culture.
Rex was a fantastic guide! Very friendly and informative. Would highly recommend!
