The tour was fantastic. The guide was really helpful and informative and the food that was included in the package tasted good despite its humble looks. I bought this trip so that my parents who are unable to walk so much can still enjoy the sights and scenery of historical Thailand. We were getting bored of the cycle of just shopping and eating. This trip was definately an eye-opener and a break from the Bangkok 'city life'
Definitely a must-try, even for those who are frequent visitors of Bangkok but have yet to venture out of the city centre. This tour was well organised, stuck to the schedule and had guides who were fluent in English and experienced in their craft. It was a wonderful journey through time where you get to learn about the culture and history of a forgotten civilisation. The only unfortunate part about this experience was encountering the other tourists who were sadly quite disrespectful towards local customs and places of worship, but that's an inevitability in many cultural landmarks. Still, one would be able to get amazing photographs of these sites without having to go up close (it's better to keep a respectful distance!) Really worth the money and spending a full day on.
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.
