    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.

  • From Bangkok: Ayutthaya Private Full-Day UNESCO Trip

    5. From Bangkok: Ayutthaya Private Full-Day UNESCO Trip

    Choose to meet your guide at the meeting point or take advantage of hotel transfer services from your accommodation in Bangkok. Drive towards the Ancient city of Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand. Make your first stop at Wat Phra Sri Sanphet which was for a long time considered to be the spiritual center of Thailand. Situated within the royal palace grounds, the temple is the royal monastery and is a model of the royal temple of the Emerald Buddha or Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. Then, head to Wat Mahathat Ayutthaya which is one of the oldest and most significant temples in the history of Ayutthaya as it housed the Buddha's holy relic. The temple is most famous for the Buddha head situated in a Bodhi tree root. Next, stop at Wat Ratchaburana which houses a large number of Buddha images and gold artifacts. Enjoy lunch that will be served at Krungsri River Hotel. In the afternoon,...

    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.

After departing from Bangkok bright and early, see Bang Pa-In Royal Palace en route to Ayutthaya. Used as a summer residence for ancient Thai kings, the golden pagodas and serene pools make for a great introduction to the region’s glorious past. After arriving in Ayutthaya, take several hours to explore fascinating ancient religious sites including Wat Mahathat, where a decapitated Buddha hea...

  • Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

    7. Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

    Ancient Siam (also known as Ancient City, Mueang Boran) is a park constructed under the patronage of Lek Viriyaphant and spreading over 200 acres (0.81 km2) in the shape of Thailand. The founder's original idea was to create a golf course with miniatures of Thailand's historically significant structures spread around the course. During his research, he found most structures severely damaged and decided instead to create new miniatures, to save the original structures when possible, or to re-create them full size or scaled down. Ancient Siam is dubbed as the world's largest outdoor museum. Located in Samut Prakan province, the 320-hectare "city" features 116 structures of Thailand's famous monuments and architectural attractions. The grounds of Ancient Siam correspond roughly to the shape of the Kingdom, with the monuments lying at their correct places geographically. Some of the build...

Great tour, amazing places, five star lunch, and one of the best guides (with one of the best English speaking we met in Thailand). Thank you Ms. Pet!
