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.

What an amazing day trip, and such great value for money. Our guide was so interesting and friendly, and each place we visited was so beautiful. The boat trip back was really relaxing and the buffet food was lovely.

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.

Response from TourEastThailand, Director of Sales at Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok
Responded 18 Mar 2020
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.
