Everything worked out great, we were picked up at the hotel on time. The excursion was well organized, both the trips and guided tours in Ayutthaya, the ruins. The tour guide was very nice. The food on the ship is super delicious! The return trip to Bangkok by ship was also very nice and relaxed. Even in times of Covid-19, hygiene was always observed during the entire excursion, disinfectants were always available and everyone had to disinfect their hands again after each stop. Very exemplary! All in all a very nice excursion that we would book again.

The arrived on time to pick up at our hotel. The tour guide was very good and the driver was great. The places were nice and the boat ride with lunch was fine. I want to make a very special thanks to the driver who was great with helping me load and unload my electric foldable wheelchair. Without the chair this trip would not have been possible.
