What to Expect
Just north of Bangkok, Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand, is a must-see destination. After morning pickup from centrally located hotels in Bangkok, ride in an air-conditioned bus to Ayutthaya. Your tour begins at the Summer Palace of the late King Rama V, before continuing to magnificent temple ruins throughout the UNESCO-listed site. Hear about clashes between the armies of Burma and Thailand, and get great photo ops of the many monuments. Return to Bangkok on a comfortable, air-conditioned Chao Phraya cruise boat, taking in the sights along the riverbanks. Dine on a buffet lunch served on board and expect to reach Bangkok in the late afternoon. Your tour ends with a transfer from the dock back to your Bangkok hotel. Note: Modest attire is required for entrance to the Summer Palace.

The excursion (private party of 2) with our guide Khun Na, was excellent, not withstanding the heat the trip to Ayuthaya was interesting and the places visited splendid. With the hefty price tag for a 2 person excursions we where very disappointed with the cruise back however.

Well organized pick up and tour. Our accommodation was far from all pick-up locations, but after some E-mails they offered a hotel to go in the morning. Intelligent guide with good English (Victor).
