What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Full-Day Ayutthaya Tour from Bangkok

Wat Yai Chi Mongkhon

Meet a driver at your Bangkok hotel for 8am departure, then board a private, climate-controlled vehicle for the 48-mile (80-km) trip to Ayutthaya Historical Park, the former capital of Siam.

Upon arrival in Ayutthaya, visit Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon, an active Buddhist temple where statues are decked in golden fabric, then continue to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, whose massive centerpiece dates back to the early era of Ayutthaya.

Take in Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, the Royal Palace’s most holy temple, and light some incense near one of Thailand’s largest bronze Buddhas at Vihara Phra Mongkhon Bophit.

After a morning of exploring, pause for a lunch of Thai cuisine, then walk the grounds of Wat Mahthat, once an important Buddhist monastery, with a famed Buddha’s head that’s been wrapped in the roots of a banyan tree. Make a final stop at Bang Pa-In Palace, an elegant, riverside retreat once used by the Siamese kings, where a palace, throne room, and pavilion are surrounded by manicured grounds.

Following your time at Bang Pa-In Palace, this tour concludes with return transfer to your accommodations in Bangkok.

The tour guide Aey was very knowledgable and was able to tell us the history of the place. Without the guide we would not be able to understand what we see. Thanks for letting us have a good time.

Our guide was very friendly and highly informative. Miss Supatsara Wonghong continually ensured that we were having a good time and that we had what we needed to enjoy the tour, whether that be water, an umbrella to escape the heat, or easy access to a restroom.

The only way to see Ayutthaya is with a guide and driver. The city is very expansive and without a guide it would be overwhelming. Rose spoke excellent English and was able to shepherd us through the archeology, provide spiritual context, explain the history of who built the city as well as the stories of many invasions. We covered many areas and each was more beautiful than the one before. I should also mention the amazing buffet lunch. It was an extraordinary day made meaningful with the help of our guide and driver. As I said at the beginning, this is the only way to visit Ayutthaya.

firstly about the company - this was the 3rd time i used Mam Holidays Ltd for a tour in Bangkok. Very professional and prompt. . The cars are very comfortable, driver is good and guides knowledgeable. After visiting over 60 countries and doing tours in most, i have found the best guides are passionate about their country/city, and the guides that work for Mam Holidays Ltd certainly are, especially the lady that i've had as a tour guide twice Miss Supatsara Wonghong Khun Aey.
As far as the sites go, if you like temples and palaces this is a must from Bangkok. I've included some pics so you know what you will see.

We had the best time with Aey in Ayutthaya -- wonderful service where she and her driver picked us up from our hotel in Bangkok and embarked on a day long trip in Ayutthaya. First we saw the summer palace and then we visited three Wats, in addition to picking up lunch. Because my mother was not feeling well, Aey was very considerate about the amount of walking, and also arranged for a vegetarian meal for lunch not easy in Thailand!. Aey was also easy to understand, and she also played the role of our photographer during the tour. Highly recommended, and extremely good value for the price.

We spent a full day tour with our guide Aey who was very knowledgeable of Thailands history and culture. She thoroughly explained all about Ayutthaya, and the different areas and temples we visited. Her quality was excellent and she answered our so many questions we had and detailed all the history behind. We had a wonderful experience and would recommend this tour highly. AYutthaya is a must in Bangkok if you really want to understand its history and heritage.

The guide arrived on time at our hotel, the driver was a few minutes late - bangkok traffic is awful!!.
Our guide was super friendly and chatty, their were bottles of water waiting in the comfortable air conditioned car. Our guide told us the plan for the day first thing in the morning so we knew exactly what to expect but she was very comfortable to tailor it around us.

She taught us a lot about ayutthaya and made sure we saw all the beautiful sites. Reclining Buddha, Buddha in the tree and loads of temples. The ancient capital is amazing and I highly recommended seeing it and using this company.

The lunch which was included was really tasty and broke the day up nicely.

On the way home we wanted to go to a dive shop in Bangkok to collect a diving mask, they took us there after the tour which added two hours to the trip as traffic was so bad, they did it with no complaints and smiles on their faces. That was really above and beyond our expectations.

Thank you so much for a wonderful day. I would definitely recommend you and use you again.
