This was a great experience, Max, our guide, along with Boy, our driver, were both great. The guide was super friendly and knowledgeable, telling us all about the places we were visiting, but not only that, in the van, on our way to the destination, he was telling us a bunch of interesting facts about Thailand, this made the ride super entertaining. We had plenty of free time at each interest point after our guide explained the history behind it. The floating market was not what we expected (a river full of boats selling different things) but rather a bunch of small stalls on the edge of a small lake, regardless, it was an enjoyable stop along our way. You could buy a bunch of souvenirs or food, for the sweet stuf I highly recommend the coconut ice cream, the coconut pancakes and steamed banan cake.

Really well done and very informative. The bus was super clean and cool, providing good receptive from the heat. The floating market was a bit quirky but lovable given its destination as weekend getaway for the locals. Really appreciated that. And of course really enjoyed the jaunt through the summer palace and Ayutthaya and the guide's indepth knowledge.

Everything was good, the market was very quiet as it was a weekday. Ancient City was beautiful and the guide provided a lot of information. We returned to Bangkok about 5:30pm

Great tour, very informative. The tour guide (Jo) was excellent! She was polite, friendly,approachable, and seems to have good knowledge of the place and the history.
