The tour guide and our driver picked us up on time and drove to the temples of Ayutthaya first. The guide was very informative and funny. He gave us many information about each place, its history, and customs. After some temples you would receive lunch in a restaurant, however, we were not hungry at all so our guide was so friendly and bought us plenty of fruits in the end which was very nice. After a 1 h drive, you will walk around Lopburi with the monkey-tempel. It was another world and completely different from the other ones you have seen before. It is not as dangerous as we expected it but you have to be After a 1 h drive you will walk arreound Lopburi with the monky-tempel. It was another world and compleatly different to the other ones you have seen before. It is not as dangerous as we expected it but you have to be careful. We enyoed the tour and realy recommend it. Furthermore because it is a privet tour you can spend as much time as you would like to on each of these places.

This day trip was phenomenal. We really enjoyed all the beautiful temples and learning about the history from our guide, A. He was very friendly, super informed, and very kind. He took many pictures to capture our experience, which we were so grateful for! He also bought some snacks to sample along a market, and supplied plenty of monkey food for the monkey temple. The monkey temple was quite an experience. Definitely bring longer shorts/ pants and a t-shirt for the temples, but also for the inquisitive and sneaky monkeys! We had an amazing time feeding the monkeys and even hosted a few for a shoulder ride! After we headed to lunch off a beautiful river, and wow that food was awesome! It was a spectacular day.

We had a great day with our guide Jill and our driver. We were picked up on time at the hotel and drove north from Bangkok. Our first stop was the Monkey Temple in Lopburi. From there we went to Ayuttharma. Jill lives and was born in Bangkok. She has been a guide for 30 years and her experience was noticeable. She told us everything about the country and its people in great English. She also took lots of photos of us. The tour was totally worth it because of the sights. The lunch was really delicious and we were always supplied with water in 38 degree heat. The tour has its "price" but we would book it again anytime.

It was extremely hot the day we went. The driver was excellent and had wet towels for us after each stop. We didn’t stay too long due to the heat. He took us to another place we asked to see and to an excellent authentic restaurant for lunch.

Lovely day with a nice driver and guide. We got picked up on time. They Provider us with cold fresh water all the time. Looked for the good restrooms. Lots of interesting facts about the Land.history and culture.
