If you have enough time in Bangkok to do a full day tour outside of Bangkok this is a great tour. Ayutthaya is an impressive site. We visited at least 6 or 7 locations in this area throughout the day. The guide Siri was really good about both giving us history as well as bringing in stories about the Royals and the history of the various palaces. He also very patiently took lots of pictures of the 3 couples that were on this tour. The driver was also very safe and good. The one thing that I know is outside the purview of the guide or this company is Thailand/Ayutthaya and UNESCO needs to stop the riding of elephants around this area. It was very disturbing to see the elephants who were in bad shape walking around. Also, in this day and age of Coronavirus not sure a buffet lunch is still a great idea. Maybe box lunches should be in order until this all passes. I would definitely recommend this company to do a tour of Ayutthaya.
Didn't care for the first stop (the more current palace grounds near Ayutthaya) or the floating market, I would not recommend that part. But Ayutthaya was amazing and we were afforded enough time to explore. The tour guide was very accommodating and knowledgable.
Very interesting day, Tan (guide) was very knowledgable and made sure everybody knew where to meet and gave very clear instructions. Transport was excellent and there were many bargains to be had at the floating market. Palace gardens were amazing!
The GYG was well organised & the guide was very knowledgeable. The Kings summer palace & the ancient wats of Ayutthaya were amazing & well worth seeing. The floating markets were a bit disappointing, very touristy. Overall a good day out.
Very well organised- from the location of the meeting point, itinerary explained to the drop off point. Our guide Jenny (nickname Oh) was a delight. Very thorough, knowledgable and extremely friendly.
