Great experience, many interesting things to learn
Rebecca_G, Aug 2022
Our guide was super well informed and gave great insights. We enjoyed our trip with a safe driver in a comfortable car.
Day out of Bangkok
Dean_B, Jul 2022
Having been to Bangkok several times before, it was good to do something different. Lucky was a superb guide, with a great knowledge of Thai history and an excellent sense of humour. The pace of the tour was lead by us too.
Fantastic day out.
Dean_C, Jul 2022
The summer palace is a beautiful location and all of the temples Ayutthaya are fantastic giving an insight into a bygone era.
Awesome Tour, Safe Transport, and Terrible Food
Boyd_B, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Phet arrived thirty minutes early, in a large, clean van. She kindly explained key landmarks heading to and from our destinations. Phet spoke fairly good English, and her historical knowledge was excellent. Phet helped us navigate destinations safely, with a balance of swiftness and time to enjoy the locations we wished to witness longer. Phet also knew key locations to take excellent photographs, which other tour guides would not. Phet’s made this experience worth the price. Our only negative experience was the provided food. The restaurant was clearly a tourist trap and the worst food we’ve eaten in Thailand. Beverages, including sodas, juice, tea, were not included. Thai tea was heavily watered down (at $2 each). Moreover, the food was a mix of bland ketchup based sweet & sour chicken, small fried chicken wings, and a pile of barely cooked onions, carrots, and peppered chicken. Hardly the “traditional Thai meal” expected. We walked past so many street vendors, who offered far better meals. Furthermore, the restaurant was littered with insects, and the dishes were washed via a garden hose outside. So, sanitation was no better than a street vendor anyways. We highly recommend this tour with Phet. The destinations were awesome and the transportation was safe. We, however, do not recommend the restaurant.

Great History
Camz_R, Jun 2022
Tour was great! We're so glad we booked it. We learned a lot about history of Ayutthaya, stories about it's glory days and downfall, our tour guide even taught us about architecture, pointed structure vs rounded ones... she took taking photos to the next level! We also requested to stop at a local market which was quite fun! Also got to see other temples not in the itinerary so all in all, got a pretty good grasp of the culture, as well as Ayutthaya history. Even now after being in other tours, I already understand the concept of what's being told based on what I learned in this tour. I highly recommend it to those who are new to the country.

Great Day
Thomas_L, Jun 2022
My tour guide Jill was fantastic. The Bang Pa-In palace is an interesting place and the Ayuttahaya ruins are well worth a visit to see some of Thailands history. Highly recommend this tour!
Day to remember
Nanjean_G, Jun 2022
I had an Amazing day. Kanpanat was my tour guide, he helped create memories for a lifetime. I could not ask for a better guide or driver. Kanpanat was very informative and knew Thailands history well, he was also our photographer and knew how to keep us laughing throughout the day.

Picturesque Day Trip from Bangkok
Shikhar_G, Jun 2022
The tour was a great overview of the ancient city of Ayutthaya and the royal family’s summer palace! Our tour guide helped provide much needed historical context to all the sights, and also took some excellent photos of my wife and I! Overall would highly recommend people check this tour out as a quick day trip outside of Bangkok!
Excellent Trip
Gerald_C, May 2022
An excellent tour. Jill, our tour guide is knowledgeable and she explained the history of the places of interest in depth. She also ensures we are comfortable throughout the trip.
Comfortable way to visit Ayutthaya
richardsmichaels, May 2022
A nice way to see the sites of Ayutthaya and spend the day outside of Bangkok. Our tour guide, Tao, was knowledgeable and excited to take us around (and a creative photographer). The van was very clean and comfortable and our driver, Num, got us through heavy traffic and was always waiting to pick us up after each stop. Thank you!
Great way to discover UNESCO site
Makar_S, May 2022
Visiting big complexes of ancient ruins was really great. Besides mentioning details about the spots themselves we received cool insights about Buddhism in general and history of the royal family. Interesting, highly recommended!
Great experience

Tao was a wonderful guide. We saw many beautiful places, a nice selection from the stunning palace through to temple ruins with amazing histories. Tao explained all the history to us as we went along. He took us to an nice Thai restaurant for lunch full of delicious choices. Very memorable day. Thanks to Tao and Ting (our driver).
Best experience while in Thailand
Elias_D, Apr 2022
I would recommend this tour to anyone. Is a must see in Thailand. My tour guides were the best I have the pleasure to meet. They were detailed, accommodating, fun and just perfect for this tour on a very hot day! This city history will amaze you and you cannot miss it. Thank you and will be seeing you again soon.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear Elias, always great to read people are satisfied.I will forward the compliments to guide Tao and hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Great Bangkok History and Seemlessly Easy.
Beth_T, Apr 2022
We would definitely recommend this tour. This is a great way to learn about the history of the region and see some amazing historical sights. Our tour guide Mr. Tao did an amazing job giving us all the great historical facts. The tour was so seemless, they picked us up at the hotel and were picked up and dropped off at each of our stops. I would most definitely suggest booking this!
