The price was reasonable with the combination of the two standard tours. The content is fair. At this time, the number of tourists was quite small, probably because the coronavirus epidemic caused the disappearance of Chinese and Korean tourists. It's a pity that I didn't have time to ride an elephant in Ayutthaya. However, it was out of the hotel pickup area and the morning departure was early, so I had to take a taxi to the meeting place, and it was too early for the hotel breakfast time to cancel the breakfast. I wish I had a little more time in the morning.

1st day was excellent. Great guide with excellent English. Markets are an experience not to be missed. 2nd day went well but the feeling of always running, especially in the ruins where 30 minutes are insufficient. Very helpful guide and knowledgeable of the local history.
