This tour was excellent. Moo our guide was very informative and looked after us on the day. Thanks Moo you did a great job. The monkeys at Lopburi are fun to feed but there are so many of them and you have to be careful that they don’t jump on you. This part of the tour may not be suitable for very young children as the monkeys run free. Great for adults though. Ayutthaya is really interesting and loved the history. I have done this tour before and enjoyed it this time as much as the last. Being on a private tour is the best way to travel.

Tour Guide Jill and Driver Happy we’re so wonderful. The van was spacious and comfortable. I took a nap to the Monkey Temple (2 hours). You and your group are treated very well, bathrooms, water, lunch and special touches like a fan and flowers for the temple. Highly recommend this tour! Only room for improvement was the communication for the pick up time. I had to call since I didn’t hear from them.

Our guide was awesome and told us all about the temples we saw. We especially loved the monkey temple.,..we laugh every time we think about how much fun it was!

The tour guide is very knowledgeable, so I learned a lot about the places I visited as well as other things about Thailand culture. So satisfied

Everything worked out very well. Would always book through GetYourGuide. We were in Lopburi, had a very nice car and a friendly driver.
