If you have enough time in Bangkok to do a full day tour outside of Bangkok this is a great tour. Ayutthaya is an impressive site. We visited at least 6 or 7 locations in this area throughout the day. The guide Siri was really good about both giving us history as well as bringing in stories about the Royals and the history of the various palaces. He also very patiently took lots of pictures of the 3 couples that were on this tour. The driver was also very safe and good. The one thing that I know is outside the purview of the guide or this company is Thailand/Ayutthaya and UNESCO needs to stop the riding of elephants around this area. It was very disturbing to see the elephants who were in bad shape walking around. Also, in this day and age of Coronavirus not sure a buffet lunch is still a great idea. Maybe box lunches should be in order until this all passes. I would definitely recommend this company to do a tour of Ayutthaya.
I wish I would have written down the name of our guide. She was excellent. She was early to meet us at our hotel. We went to the two temples first and then on to the Royal Palace. This is an excellent tour. The temples and palace are absolutely gorgeous. These are must see sites to see when you are in Bangkok. We started right at 8:30AM so not too early and were done by early afternoon. We opted to stay in the old town area and grab some lunch before trying unsuccessfully to find some tourist t-shirts. The guide suggested a really cool restaurant near the palace for lunch and even walked us over there and got us situated before leaving. The lunch was probably the best food we had in Bangkok. Hopefully get your guide can figure out who our guide was and keeps her busy because she was great.
Unforgettable experience! Describing it won't be enough to explain the emotions and incredible impact it had on myself and my partner. The whole experience is at the elephants pace, in their natural environment. The team who takes care of the elephants are 100% committed in the cause and in these animals safeguard. The money raised through tickets and merchandise will contribute to the protection and long-term care of elephants in their natural habitat.
the guide picked us up from our hotel right on time.on the way to the first attraction he was informative and very funny. we enjoyed the bus trip seeing a different side of Thailand.all the temples we visited were a wondaful insight into thai history and thoughly enjoyed our trip.the lunch cruise back to Bangkok was a perfect way to enjor another side of this amazing country.the food was lovely and lots of it.
I really enjoyed myself, lots of clear instructions on how to properly interact with the elephants. They answer any questions you could possibly have. I would definitely return again.
