Very interesting visit to a unique place. Even though the floating market has been considerably commercialized to cater to tourists, one can get a good appreciation of how it would have been before a few decades. The cultural show in the Rose Garden center is of a high standard that matches the production standards of a Las Vegas show. Overall, a highly enjoyable tour.
Highly enjoyable and informative tour.
The grand palace visit was excellent although it was rushed and very brief.
Of the four hours on this trip only 40 minutes was spent in the Royal Palace - more time was spent at a gem factory which we were taken to without notice. In retrospect I could have visited the palace by myself without taking this tour.
The tour was one of the best day tours I've ever been on. Donna was our guide and she made it extra special. She is an exceptional tour guide. She explained the history of Ayuttaya and the summer palace. She took time to take photos of everyone who wanted them. She made you feel very comfortable and was willing to help you in any way possible.
This was the perfect day trip to get out of Bangkok, see some of the beautiful countryside of Thailand, and do some fun activities! While I agree with other reviews that the ox-cart ride wasn't the most exciting thing, the rest of the trip more than makes up for it with the market stop (trying and seeing new things), learning how to cook traditional Thai food for lunch, exploring the waterfall, and, saving the best for last, riding the elephant! The tour guides were excellent, keeping us clear of the protests and being very fun to talk to and interact with, and although there is a bit of driving on this tour, it was definitely worth it. For those who party the night before, plenty of time to nap on the bus, and for those who are wide awake the guides are interesting to talk to about anything you want to talk about. Great time!
I only had a few days in Bangkok before i left for Cambodia. This trip let me enjoy the river which included a fabulous lunch with lots to eat. Being able to walk around Ayutthaya in order to appreciate its former grandeur was an experience i am very glad i had. i would highly recommend this tour. the ease of being picked up from your hotel as well as dropped off took all stress out of the day.
Only problem was the hotel pick up as the hotel I was staying at was not on the list.I could not find the hotel I was meant to be picked up from thou when I got back to my hotel and told reception they phoned this company up,was asked if I wanted to go on it the next day(my answer yes) and the reception staff the next day led me to the pick up place where I eventually was picked up.Top tour and 10 out of 10 for help and assistance!will highly recommend this tour to people.
A must when you visit Bangkok, we had been there 2 years ago and wanted to experience it again. With viator no asle no problems no nonsense, great guide and good chauffeur what do you want more ;)? great half day of excursion in a magic King and I spot.Enjoy your visit and please do not touch anything...let's preserve at it is...
A fun tour. The best parts were the canal boat ride through a tropical area both very quiet and so peaceful and then viewing the floating market. Also, a top site was the chedi at Nakhom Pathom and also the shows at the Rose Garden Cultural Center were interesting. We had a great buffet lunch at the Rose Garden.
Great tour but expect being emotional visiting the Australian/British cemetery of those of didn't survive the death camps and even more emotional at the JEATH War Museum. Next, a very fast long-tail boat ride to the Burma Death Railway. We took about a 2 1/2 hour ride on the railway through farm country, then lunch at an open-air restaurant. Long trip back to Bangkok.
Great tour, waterfall was unique. The best part was the elephant ride, it was about a 45 minute ride partially through a river. Got to feed the elephant after the ride. Was fun definitely worth the money.
Great tour, really enjoyed it. Tour guide was excellent. Great value for money and would recommend this tour. The river cruise on the way back was great and the food was too. Brilliant day out and great value.
This was a great way to see the grand palace, would recommend as it is a busy place to be without a your guide.
A very good value for money trip. it was an early start though at 6.20am but a lot was packed into the day, firstly negotiating Bangkoks monstrous traffic and making a couple of pick ups at other hotels before hitting the road. The trip entailed a stop at the death railway museum which has numerous contemporary photographs and artefacts,we then transferred by long tailed motor boats and and made our way up the river to the bridge where we had the chance to stop and walk over it. We then got on a train and travelled for about an hour and fourty minutes along the line .When we alighted a hot lunch was included which was very good and the trip ended at an immaculately kept cemetery where thousands of service personnel have been laid to rest. The guide could'nt do enough to be helpful with his commentary, although after such an early start sometimes a few more quiet moments would have been appreciated. We arrived back at our hotel at about 7.30pm and I would not hesitate to recommend this trip. It was a privilege to have been there.
