From Bangkok: Ayutthaya Historical Park Small-Group Day Trip
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9.5 hours
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.
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.
Didn't care for the first stop (the more current palace grounds near Ayutthaya) or the floating market, I would not recommend that part. But Ayutthaya was amazing and we were afforded enough time to explore. The tour guide was very accommodating and knowledgable.
Very interesting day, Tan (guide) was very knowledgable and made sure everybody knew where to meet and gave very clear instructions. Transport was excellent and there were many bargains to be had at the floating market. Palace gardens were amazing!
The GYG was well organised & the guide was very knowledgeable. The Kings summer palace & the ancient wats of Ayutthaya were amazing & well worth seeing. The floating markets were a bit disappointing, very touristy. Overall a good day out.
