The whole experience extraordinary. It was my first cruise ever and it was wonderful. We got really nice seats on the top. The buffet was good. The cabaret show was very entertaining. My mother is vegetarian and she didn’t have anything to eat. She asked a chef if they have anything vegetarian and he said he will be back in 10 minutes. Which he did and brought 4 freshly made pure vegetarian dishes for her. The staff was extremely nice and supportive as they helped board my autistic sister (who’s afraid of heights and water). GetYourGuide made it easier as I didn’t have to stand in any queue and got good seats by booking in advance. Extremely recommended

We are a group of 4 on a day trip to Ayutthaya. The trip covered key landmarks and was a great way to spend a day learning about Thai history. We also had lunch at a wonderful Thai restaurant with great fried rice and pork. Our guide Tar was an excellent guide who was mindful of our comfort throughout the tour. She was also professional and very knowledgeable about Ayutthaya. She was hospitable, offering to take photos of us in the best spots at each landmark. It was a hot and sweltering day, but made a breeze due to Tar’s warm nature. Will recommend the trip to anyone.

If you would like to see the authentic Thai people and their everyday life, this is the tour to go. As a single lady, I wouldn't have dared to go to the back streets, where the real Thai culture lies. I'm glad that i chose this tour. See it for yourself, slow down the pace if possible to talk to the shop owners and cooks if possible. And take some photos. Unforgettable and highly recommended. Gentle reminder, join with an empty and eager stomach and an open mind.

it such an amazing experiences to join this trip, where I was able to make new friends. our guide explained so well about all the information.

It was a great tour and Sam our guide was very knowledgeable.
