A really good experience, with a wide variety to see. The first stop was the Summer Palace at Autthaya - an amazing accumulation of buildings in many architectural styles from the around the world, some of which are still used for visiting dignitaries. Then on to the old temple complex - although it is mostly in ruins, it is still a site to behold, in terms of its size though you do have to imagine it in its glory days. The lying Buddha was smaller than I had expected (I had seen the one in Bangkok previously). Overall, a group of sites we would not have seen without a tour.
The highlight though had to be the river boat cruise back to Bangkok on the Chao Phraya river - I always enjoy boat cruises and this was no exception. It was leisurely and a nice way to see the sites from the river. Actually, it may be nice just to do this.
Our guide, Pan, was very knowledgeable and had so much to share about Thailand, both its history the country today.
The tour was extremely good and exceeded my expectations - the guide (Bertrand) was extremely knowledgeable and conveyed his knowledge in a way that made you really feel like you could experience the site and the battles that had taken place there. It is pricy, but worth the cost if you have an interest in WWI sites. Although Delville Wood is on the listed itenary, the tour doesn't always go there - make sure to ask to go - it is really worth seeing even if you aren't South African.
