Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
For a one-day tour, this Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise covers a lot of territory and offers a great deal of knowledge. For a person with limited time in Thailand, or for an excellent overview of the history, this trip is perfect. I have taken the tour twice with different guests from the U.S. and got rave reviews each time. The only tiny drawback was a local woman at the toilet in Ayutthaya: she was quite rude and even insulting when she mistakenly thought one of my guests failed to pay the 5 b she was collecting. She was the only sour note in the day, but a memorable one. Otherwise, a very enjoyable day. The guides on both trips were witty, courteous, knowledgable and engaging.
Would well recommend this trip great temples informative tour guide and to finish off a very nice all you can eat lunch on board the cruise boat back to Bangkok.
Really enjoyed my trip to Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise, met some lovely people
and our guide was very nice, friendly and very interesting. I enjoyed the summer palace
and the lunch on the boat back.
The Temples were stunning and our guide was exceptional. Lunch on the boat cruise catered for everyones dietry requirements-myself being the only vegetarian, a special lunch was prepared for me and was simply devine. I would strong recommend this tour

Tour guide was awesome, Donna! The tour was very informative and thorough.
Donna is an excellent tour guide as she enjoys talking. The cruise / lunch brilliant and see the river by day is very interesting.
I THOUGHT TOUR THE WAS EXCELLENT AND THE TOUR COMPANY DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB IN PRESENTING THIS TOUR.I FEEL IF YOU VISIT BANGKOK THIS IS ONE YOU NEED TO DO.THE SUMMER GARDEN WERE WONDERFUL AND THE TEMPLES TOO.THE RIVER BOAT AND LUNCH WAS A GOOD WAY TO COMPLETE THIS TOUR.A GREAT TOUR TO TAKE IN BANGKOK.
The Viator tour people were very accomodating and picked the three of us up at our hotel (The Ambassador) even though it was not on their listed hotels for pickup. The
tour was wonderful and the buffet on the return ship was excellent.
Excellent day. Very knowledgable tour guide. Could have more time in the Summer Palace instead of visiting 3 different temples. The visit to the ruined temple and the Sleeping Buddha was worth visiting. But the other wat, which I could not remember the name could be omitted and the time used for this visit be slotted in for the Summer Palace would be a bonus.
Worth every penny! A great tour guide -- very knowledgeable, courteous, fun and helpful!
excellent tour and value for money, our tour guide Donna was very informative and has great sense of humour.
One day trip seems to be a very appropriate length for a visit to Ayutthaya. It provides great sights to Thailand's history. A very well organised tour including the cruise on the Chao Praya river.
Great tour! So much info given and got to see a lot. The tour guide was really great (can't remember his name though). The lunch cruise was a nice way to end. Definitely something to see. Check out my blog if you have any questions liyapilly.com.
1)Short hotel pick up time. To avoid traffic jam and making too many stops, they had a mini-van picking up tourists to the central gathering spot with the big tour bus
2)Tour guide was friendly
Office telephone seems to be not working.
I would recommend this tour to my friends.
There were many Budhas to see on this tour. Our tour guide was very imformative. The part of the tour we liked the best were the Summer Palace Buildings. We rented a golf cart for 400BMT. This was well worth the money, since you were able to quickly get from place to place. We did not miss one building or landscaping display. The buffet on the cruise was very good and the seating was comfortable with large windows to enjoy the views. We enjoyed that it was air-conditioned. The Tang Festival was starting tomorrow (11/28/2012). We were able to see the floats up close. These were the same floats we saw illuminated on the dinner cruise later that night.
Awesome trip! The best way to see Ayutthaya. We learned so much about the sites, and Thailand in general, from Krit, our guide. The boat ride is a little boring, but you see Thai lifestyles you may not see otherwise.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and he was proud to share Thailand's culture and history with the guests. Very good tour!
Our tour guide was very entertaining and professional. We found the trip very enjoyable, its just a shame it couldn't be longer.
our tour guide "Donna" was fantastic, she had a great local knowledge and passion for what she was doing. `There was a problem with the coach that was to take us but was overcome by using the minibuses and the coach picked us up on time for the trip to ayutthaya. highly recommended
Wonderful! The day was hot, and humid - everything Thailand is known for, but to stand in those ruins, and see for yourself those things you've only ever looked at in books before... Magical.
It is great to see other cultures and the life styles they live. This was a great tour to get a taste of the way different people live. Amazing the way they drive and how few accidents they have.
