Came to Bangkok 10 years ago and was told when we came back to be sure to see Ayutthaya. We did. Definitely worth the day trip. Very prompt pick up and actually saw more than just ruins of the city. There was a palace tour included there that I didn't realize was part of the day. It was really beautiful and quite different from other things we had seen in Thailand. The cruise back aboard the Pearl was very good too. The food was better than we had expected for a day cruise boat and the boat itself was very modern and nice. The tour bus going to Ayuthaya wasn't quite as nice as some of the others we saw around...but I wouldn't ding them for that one item.

This was a very interesting tour. I think that all trips to Thailand should include a tour to Ayuthaya as it gives an outline on the history of the country and the government.

Loved Ayuttaya! Our guide was fabulous and knowledgeable!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was a great trip, even though we had to leave the hotel at 7am. Our guide, who's name we can't remember, was very funny, knowledgeable, and very patient with some of the other tourists who ignored his requests to be back at the coach on time. The summer palace was quiet and peaceful, Ayuthaya awesome, and the cruise with meal was so enjoyable. Well worth the money.


4 star rating: Recommended January 2017

It was a beautiful tour. Why I gave it a 4 star is because we would have loved the full Thai experience not been rush a little. While speaking to the other people on the tour we would have preferred to have been given more time in each area to explore the crafts and food. Not everyone wants to eat a buffet or go to a local restaurant which we can do anytime. We never got to see how they spun sugar, which Ayuthaya is famous for, as we had a dead line to make for the boat which was okay

No real problems, overall nice tour, river cruise sort of dull
