What people are saying about History Tours in Bangkok
We had so much fun! If you want ot maximize your visit in Bangkok, dont forget to book this Tour. All the essentials to experience and enjoy Ayutthaya are provided by the Tour. You can find the meet up place easily and you can line up to your appropriate tour without hassle. Enough time is also given at every stop. You can freely explore the ruins in the time given. We had a lot of fun with the experience especially the sunset viewing at the temple. Highly recommended!
Had a great time exploring Ayutthaya, thanks to klook! The voucher is very convenient to use, we meet up with the tour guide and explored Bang Pa In Palace and Ayutthaya. Even the weather is hot and dry, thia tour is definitely worth the purchase! The tour guides speak good English and is very friendly. I learned a lot of history of the city. The bus is also comfortable, best way to spend 1 day out of Bangkok. Also the nicest part of the tour is the sunset boat ride!
Ms. Cherry was a lovely tour guide, very pleasant and spoke good English and accommodated well, even our tour companions who were late for the meet up time. We had a wonderful time visiting all the temples in the itinerary and you get ample time learning about them from Ms. Cherry and photo-taking time for each. Take note that lunch is not included in this package, only bottled water, so bring cash. The longboat ride was a fun way to see Bangkok from a different perspective. Make sure to give enough time to get to the meet-up point as traffic can get bad.
Taking a tour was the best decision. Many people will tell you that you can ride a train to Ayutthaya and explore on your own. however, Ayutthaya used to be the old Bangkok and it is huge in extension. You would need taxis or tuk tuks to go from temple to temple plus tickets and in the end you would spend the same, plus the scorching sun factor. The guide was really kind and the explanations were great. I really enjoyed it. Actually I forgot to leave a tip. If somebody can tell me how I will appreciate it.
I had a fantastic day. I was solo travelling and not been in Bangkok before. At first I was apprehensive as the meeting point was kinda not clear. Once I found the spot, I was given a sticker and shown to the coach. I very safe and the coach was a blessing. it was so hot and it was a long day. Not having to think and have air conditioning between the locations was pure luxury. The tour it's self was worth every penny and Boy and Mansays were wonderful tour guides. I really enjoyed :-)
This is the best day you can spend near Bangkok. For this trip you will get a lot of experience, which you need to spend several days on your own. You can ride an electric car (take your driver’s license with you to be able to rent it - this will save you strength), an elephant, a boat on a floating market, eat delicious and inexpensive food, explore majestic temples and ride a speed boat at sunset in Ayutthaya. We are very grateful to Klook for such an opportunity.
