Wow, just stunned at the whole entire experience, the summer Palace was elegant and a great place to take pictures. The ride there was also comfy and our tour guide sorry forgot his name, middle aged gentleman with white hair was incredibly informative of the history of these wonders of the world. Ayutthaya was without a doubt the best part I took the time to meditate for 10 minutes the place was a swan song to the great Buddha and his teaching, swan song because the place was looted and destroyed by the Burmese Army! the ending was a glorious ride on the Chao Praya river back to Bangkok on a luxury watch, the food was amazing!!! and diverse with many different choices, a foodies delight. Felt like Anthony Bourdain while eating all the stuff they had. I was really surprised at the quality of everything involved yes, including the bus I will definitely encourage fellow travelers to take this tour it was the highlight of my trip to Thailand.
Amazing tour going to Ayutthaya ruins, great history, scenery and culture. Our tour guide named Donna did a great job showing us sites, taking our pictures, she is a wealth of knowledge and loves what she does. The boat ride back to Bangkok includes an all you can eat buffet lunch featuring different Thai dishes. Loved the boat ride back, nice slow ride to relax in the sun or in the AC main decks. Lots of space.
Besides the Ayutthaya sites, I was most impressed by the guide's control of time to each site, the logistics for pickup at the hotel although our hotel was not in the list of hotels, and at the boat dock. We enjoyed the land tour and the nice buffet lunch on the boat with a leisurely river cruise back to Bangkok.
Well worth the trip. Fascinating to see the Ayutthaya temples and imagine them in their heyday trip to Bang-Pa Royal Summer Palace was also included which I enjoyed seeing although makes for a full-on morning itinerary. This is balanced by the leisurely afternoon river cruise back to Bangkok, with many different aspects of Thai life and architecture on view combined with a welcome buffet lunch.

Would have liked more time at Ayutthaya and less at the summer palace. River cruise was good.
Raccomando questo tour che vi impegnerà circa dieci ore, dopo il pick-up dal vostro albergo verrete trasportati sul ritrovo dove si utilizzeranno i pullman per il giro di andata. Il primo luogo sarà la visita di Pang Pa, residenza estiva del Re, splendido luogo, silenzioso, dove vedrete curatissimi giardini, laghetti, pagode e bellissimi tempietti, il tour proseguirà verso la città antica di Ayutthaya, veramente splendida, luogo mistico da non perdere, poi si farà una breve tappa per vedere il Wat Lokaya Sutha: Buddha sdraiato, il tour prevede altre due tappe ma volevo indicare quelle che per me sono le attrattive migliori, il rientro è previsto con un battello, dove pranzerete e si navighera sul fiume Chao Phraya
This was a fantastic tour. Very interesting, informative and fun. Our tour guide Donna was very knowledgeable and funny as well. The Ayutthaya ruins were breathtaking.
Excellent guide who adhered to schedule, she explained Buddhist traditions, rituals and symbols. The cruise back was first class. Felt a little pressed by time at the temples in Ayutthaya.
I took this tour several months ago, but I do recall it was one of the best tours I've been on. I don't think it was very expensive and you get to see quite a lot in one day. I had not been to Ayutthaya before and it's always been on my list of places to visit. The tour guide was friendly and interesting--she knew so much about the history, architecture, etc. I think the tour bus was full but it was a good group of people--mostly adults. I like that although we were given quite a lot of information we had the free time to wander around and just enjoy the environment.
Excellent guide, Donna, explained Buddhist rituals, symbols and customs. She adhered to schedule. Tour of Ayutthaya was good, a little pressed by time. The river cruise back to Bangkok was first class.
We had a lovely tour with Andy a couple of weeks ago, he was very knowledgeable. We toured Bang Pa, the Ayutthaya Temples and enjoyed the river cruise. This is a must do for anyone visiting Bangkok. I just wish we had more time to explore the temples in Ayutthaya, this portion of our felt rushed. Otherwise it was GREAT!
Tour was really great. Our tour guide was really talkative, and knew every single detail about Ayutthaya and Bangkok. Lunch on the cruise was really good. Highly recommended. Also, one of my friends had to cancel booking due to fever, and Viator staff was really nice in helping about resolving this and refunding his ticket. Thanks a lot
everything as expected , really intresting tour , tour guide fantastic never stopped talking and explaining Ayutthaya is a must see , food in the cruise was really good
We had a wonderful day at the Summer Palace, Ayutthaya Temples and the river cruise on the way back to Bangkok. Our guide Tawwi was very knowledgeable and very accommodating so much so that he always volunteered to take our group pictures. The cruise on the way back was very relaxing. Lunch was good. Definitely a must do when you are in Bangkok.
Cannot speak highly enough of this tour -- well worth the money. Great, hassle-free organisation from hotel pick-up to return pick-up at River City pier. Excellent guide -- Khun Taweesak -- who gave us loads of interesting information on the bus journey and when taking us round Bang Pa-in and the temples at Ayutthaya. He was also kept very busy taking photos of everyone at each point of interest -- a job he did with a smile and great kindness. Weather perfect for wandering around the beautiful palace at Bang Pa-in and the awesome temples of Ayutthaya -- loved the Buddha head in the tree roots and the reclining Buddha, but almost impossible to single anything out, as everything so impressive. Gently cruising back down the river was a perfect end to the day. Very impressed by Wonderful Pearl -- an elegant boat with all mod cons. Good buffet , followed later by tea/coffee and biscuits, and impeccable service from staff. Many thanks to everyone who made this such a special day out!
I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide is extremely knowledgeable about the country of Thailand and the surrounding cities. The tour itself was definitely one of the highlights of my vacation. This was a bus ride to Ayutthaya temples as the tour guide explains the history surrounding the history that has greatly effected the culture. In addition the river cruise back is nice, relaxing, nice view of the city and an authentic style thai buffet

It was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lot of information about Thailand in general - economy, political and historical information which was worth listening to.
The tour covered all the important areas in Ayutthaya. Wish we had some time to spend at Bing La summer palace which is a gorgeous place to explore and enjoy the setting.
i highly recommend this tour.
very nice day trip for the day lot to see. Ayutthaya over the bus ride out of the city was about 2 hours to the sites.
Great day tour and will give you a good history of Ayutthaya and the outstanding temples around the area. I would have to say it was exceptionally hot that day, so a bit unpleasant, but still worth the experience.
Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable of the area and provided exceptional history of the Thailand and Ayutthaya, which was a great precursor leading up to the actual tour.
For travelers who want to get a good history lesson of Thailand and see exceptional ruins, book this tour.
Excellent visit to Summer Palace and Ayutthaya Temple, with a very knowledgeable guide. Followed by a relaxing river cruise and good buffet lunch.
This tour is more than a trip to some old ruins. Victor was extremely knowledgeable and would answer all questions thrown at him. Apart from visiting Ayutthaya, there were stops at the summer residence of the King and I think the 3rd largest lying Buddha in Thailand......excellent value!
Fantastic tour. Great tour guide, knew a lot about Ayutthaya's history. The lunch cruise back was very good. Highly recommended tour.
I can speak to not only the quality of the tour but also the quality of its staff -- honest and absolutely wonderful! Go now!
The tour provides a great overview of Ayutthaya and the King's palace which is very unique with architecture from all different cultures and civilizations. Absolutely worth a day of your time in Bangkok/Thailand, and the river cruise that returns you to Bangkok is fantastic - great food and a wonderful way to end the tour.
IN ADDITION, I fell asleep on the bus and left my iPhone in the bus. The tour guide graciously called the bus driver who found the phone and dropped it off to my hotel the next morning. I can't speak highly enough, and am still in shock that I got my phone back. A!
Excellent variety of activities for this and made our next stay in Ayutthaya worthwhile
It was a well worth trip,the tour guide (Victor)was fantastic,very knowledgable. he made the trip to Ayutthaya so educational.The River Cruise was good as well,Lunch was very good.We really have a great time there.
