The Summer Palace is set on lovely grounds on the banks of the Chao Praya River and is one of the best-maintained attractions in Thailand. One of the most popular attractions close to Bangkok, you will feel like a king as you wander through the vast complex. While in Ayutthaya, take in the Historical Park. The Siamese moved their capital to Ayutthaya around 1350 AD and created a royal palace and many impressive monasteries and Wats in the area.

We spent two consecutive days with our guide, Elena. In the first day she organized a taxi for the whole day and took us first to a train market and then to the Ampawa Floating market (Sat and Sun only) about 1h drive south of BKK. The Ampawa market in the evening is a very pleasant and busy place, with shops, restaurants, boats and vendors catering for locals and tourists. We took a 1h longtail boat tour from the market around the neighboring canals and communities. The second day Elena took us to the Chatuchak and the Flower markets with a break for a very tasty lunch in a pleasant restaurant. Both days' activities were perfectly organized and executed. We had great time with Elena, who is very knowledgeable, open and friendly, with great organizational skills. Couldn't have spent our time better than that. Highly recommended!

We had guide Yuut for 8 hours, who showed us Bangkok in a friendly and competent manner. All our wishes were fulfilled. His knowledge of the history of Bangkok and Buddhism was impressive. We visited the temples and the Grand Palace, a private longboat tour through the Klongs and finally also the weekend market. Without Yuut we would not have gotten to know Bangkok like this. It's worth every euro. A clear recommendation from us. Thank you Yuut

Yuut was an outstanding tour guide. He made it so easy to get around and was so informative at each of our stops. You can tell he loves what he does. Other tourists noticed his expertise and would listen to him talk and answer questions. He was gracious with others while remaining focused on me. I would book with Yuut again for sure!

Great tour with Elena. As a family, she showed us great and impressive corners of BKK off the beaten track that we had never seen before. She also responded to our requests, since we had our mobile phone display exchanged in Chinatown. Thank you very much, dear Elena, for this great day.

Rex was a fantastic guide! Very friendly and informative. Would highly recommend!
