This was a great tour and our guide Panada spoke perfect English and shared just enough history with the group. The walk around the palace was beautiful. My husband had a bad knee so we were able to hire a golf cart for him which was a bonus. The return boat trip was very relaxing however the food was a let down. The best was the Tom Yum soup which was Yum. Left home at 7am and home by 4pm so not an overly long day which was good. A good day out and some great photographs.
Really good trip with an enthusiastic guide.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Staff were very efficient and courteous, and the tour guide did a great job of keeping us informed about the sights, and he was quite entertaining as well. Lunch on the cruise was good.
This tour was amazing!
Tour went smoothly with prompt pick up from hotel to change coach to Ayuthaya.
Guide was cleared in his briefing in English.
The river cruise back to Bangkok was nice!
Takes you to good sights of you have limited time in Bangkok, gem tour was not as bad as other people say

Interesting tour. Tour guide Ton was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. Tour was a little short at the Palace and the Ruins but a bit long at the Wat Mah Arat. River cruise was nice and the buffet lunch was okay. Good value for you money with this tour.
The tour was well planned. I just wished the tour guide was more clearer on his explanation
This tour was amazing!
Obviously the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew are off the scale and a MUST. The Palace was incredibly busy as you'd expect. Our guide was ok.
The tour was great + the cruise back was a really nice touch!
Having said that, the day did drag on a bit, its a long tour.
The tour itself of the Grand Palace Complex was good, but short. We were supposed to have 2 hours there, but we only had 1 hour 20 minutes. The tour started 25 minutes late because one couple had not arrived. Then while driving through awful traffic, the bus driver talked on his cell phone for 45 minutes in what appeared to be a personal conversation instead of concentrating on driving strategically in the traffic. Several times he could have made strategic moves in traffic, but he didn't because he was not paying attention to driving. We were gone from our hotel for over 6 1/2 hours for a tour that was to be approximately 3 hours. It was frustrating and disappointing.
This tour was amazing! Of the 4 we took, this was the best! Highly recommended!!!
The first stop was the summer palace of King Rama IV. This was worth the trip alone! The structures built for the different nations were so beautiful.
The ruins of the ancient Siam, with the Buddha embedded in the tree roots and all the headless Buddhas, were inspirational.
The reclining Buddha was enormous and beautiful.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and witty though his English was not so good but understandable if you paid close attention.
The lunch back along the river was very good and the sights were pleasant. If you go outside, be sure to stand near a speaker so youll know what youre seeing though.
TIP: Take this tour and skip the dinner cruise.
