My mother, sister and I went on this trip with Sammy as the guide - we highly recommend him! He spoke great English and was extremely communicative. We absolutely loved the summer palace which was a great retreat after the hectic and noisy Bangkok experience. The Ayutthaya ruins were great too though at noon, quite tiring for us. This was no problem to Sammy, who adjusted to our pace and wishes.
Apart from learning a lot about the sights we've seen, Sammy was very good in explaining all questions we had about Thai history, culture and society. He also gave us good tips about places to go and see in Bangkok, Chiang Mail and Phuket which we were to visit afterwards.
We found that this private tour gave us the opportunity to explore all the places for exactly as long or short in case of the more sun flooded temples as we wanted to, and that when we spoke to Sammy about our night market experience he even added a little stop along the way on an Ayutthaya market and gave us tips on what sweets and dishes to try. Also, when we decided that we wanted to have some fruit instead of the scheduled lunch, Sammy arranged the trip accordingly to our wishes.
Overall, a great experience and good value for money!
Big was a fantastic guide - the best we have found in Thailand. He lived in the US for years and his English is fantastic as well as his knowledge of local history and foods etc.The combination of the royal summer palace and old city of Ayutthaya was really good - as well as lunch on the river and then sweet roti for dessert.
There was a bit of confusion about who pays for lunch with Viator after booking - lunch was included, then excluded but the tour company gives you 200 Baht credit for food - but you will spend quite a bit more on the fresh grilled jumbo shrimp if you want to try this local speciality highly recommended.
The tour was great! I highly recommend it to anyone that wishes to do something different.
I asked to visit a few different places and there was no problem at all in doing so.
Our guide was Andy and he was super nice and knew how to answer all of our questions!
Had an amazing time with my family
In general this is a good trip to take if you want something different while in Bangkok. Our guide and driver were great people and overall we had a good time. It is a long day outside - so make sure to have sunscreen and water. Our guide was nice about adjusting to our pace, which was the great benefit of doing a private tour. Be ready for LOTS of walking!
