It was a nice tour, the pick-up time is a bit early (1h before the tour officially starts). Ayutthaya didn't seem that far from bkk by bus and we visited 3 temples as well as the summer residence of the king and queen. Some temples were very nice but as this was a larger group (compared to the bkk temple tours) you had less time to visit and enjoy the scenery. The way back was by boat and the food was varied and quite good. You get free water and coffee/tea but have to pay if you want other types of drinks.
You get free transportation to your hotel by minivan but you can be dropped in town but make sure u tell your guide ahead as it's quite busy in the cruise terminal.
Very good tour and the guide Ten was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were a small enough group (9) so it was easy to visit many parts of the monasteries and had ample time to visit and take pictures in the 3 temples across town.
You also get free transport on the return and can either go back to your hotel or they can drop you in town (Siam square was very popular).
It was almost a private tour - 4people and the guide. We were among the very first to enter the grand palace so it was perfect to take the time to look into details and take nice and tourist-free pictures. We went through every building open to the public and we also got to see the guards.
The guide was very nice and knowledgeable and quick to make a joke.
The tour in itself was quite good but we only got to spent a little time in Chichen Itza which is supposed to be what this tour is about.
The Guide (in Spanish for me) was great and very knowledgeable.
He left us with "1h free time" when we actually only had 15min as the side site closed at 4.30 pm which made us miss a good bit of Chichen Itza.
If we had spent a little less time at the market would have been more enjoyable as after all it's Chichen Itza tour.
