Our tour with Jennie was fantastic! She was amazing and I cannot recommend this tour enough. Jennie shared so much about the history of the sites, cultural knowledge and tidbits on current day Thailand. Ayutthaya was beyond words. The ruins were incomparable and I cannot recommend this stop enough. In addition, we really enjoyed the floating market without having to commit a full day. It was the best of both worlds!

The temples are incredible, but our guide, Jenni, really made this trip for us. She had everything we needed - masks, water, etc. - she offered to take pictures at the best photo ops, and she explained everything in incredible detail One week out and my wife and I are still talking about the things she taught us! Highly recommend this tour, and, if you get Jenni, you're in for a treat!

Max was a wonderful guide. We really enjoyed his knowledge of the Thai culture and all the history he was able to share with us. I can not recommend this tour enough. The ruins were amazing. Unlike anything we have seen before. We were fortunate to have little traffic on our way in and out of Bangkok but Max kept us entertained.

Max was a great guide. He was very informative and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend this day trip

I think it is one of the main knowledge points about Thailand . It makes a bit of a long day .
