Overview
Navigating Bangkok’s chaotic roads independently can be a daunting task. Swap transportation hassles for a comfortable coach (with hotel pickup and drop-off) and a relaxing lunch cruise on this Ayutthaya tour. Explore the UNESCO-listed site on foot; hear guide commentary about its history; and visit highlights such as Wat Mahathat and the summer palace of King Rama IV, famed for its mixture of Thai, Chinese, and Gothic architecture.

Booked this tour through Viator with InnViaggi Asia. A good tour with a very knowledgeable guide. However, we had a very hard time understanding him as he had a strong accent. The lunch on the boat ride back to Bangkok was plentiful with great scenery from the top deck.

If you are a history lover, I don't wonder why you have visited Ayutthaya many times. It's worth visiting as a one day escape from busy Bangkok.

Great day out. We were picked up by our guide from our hotel and taken to the railway station for a train that would take us to Ayutthaya. Unfortunately our guide got us to the station an hour early so we had a bit of a wait. The more interesting thing was that we all had to

Ayutthaya is a beautiful place with lots to see. Our tour guide, Donna, was lovely and funny and very knowledgeable about the area. It's an hour drive from the pick up point and we were told lots of information and then allowed some time to sleep. The boat trip back to the drop
