Full description
Explore Ayutthaya, the old capital city of the kingdom of Siam on a private guided day trip from Bangkok. Discover the major highlights of the historical city and stop off at the King's Summer Palace - an iconic landmark on the route home. Start your trip with pickup from your hotel in Bangkok. Board an air-conditioned private vehicle and head straight to Ayuthaya, the former Thai capital for over 400 years. Set off to observe the glory of the ancient capital on a guided walking tour of the temple and palace ruins. First, visit Wat Phu Khao Thong, or the “Monastery of the Golden Mount” located just outside Ayuthaya. Then, proceed to the ancient palace and Wat Phra Si Sanphet, the holiest temple on the site of the old Royal Palace. Capture incredible photographs of the 3 chedis (or stupas) before heading over to Viharn Phra Mongkol Bopit where you can witness one of the largest bronze Buddha statues in Thailand. Following this, sit down to enjoy a delicious lunch served at a local restaurant. After this relaxing break, continue your tour to Wat Lokayasutharam, home to an impressive reclining Buddha statue. Also, step into the famous Wat Mahatat where you can marvel at the remarkable Buddha image situated right in the middle of a bodhi tree. Finally, visit the Bang Pa-In Summer Palace located between Bangkok and Ayutthaya and built during the Ayuthaya era. Learn about how it was the favorite summer palace of King Rama V and showcases an eclectic collection of buildings that blend European, Khmer, Thai, and Chinese architectural styles. At the end of the afternoon, get transferred back to your hotel in Bangkok where your memorable tour concludes.

Our tour was organised by Amazing Asia Tours and Lucky was our Guide. The tour itself was fantastic in terms of historical knowledge and cultural experience. We visited visiting top sites in Ayuthaya as per the itinerary and due to our Guide, we were well taken care of. Lucky provided a great deal of information from beginning to end. She was promptly waiting for us at the hotel, with a well-equipped car (air conditioned, water bottles and wet towels), with a well-mannered driver who was extremely kind and took care of us. Lucky made the entire experience very enjoyable with her knowledge, humour and very kind personality. She went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of and ensured our needs / expectations were always met / fulfilled. Overall a fulfilling and fantastic tour.

Our guide picked us up at our hotel right on time ... and as the driver drove us out of the city, he explained a lot about the history and curiosities of the place. We saw amazing Buddhist temple ruins, the summer palace with a beautiful garden. Our guide (unfortunately I don't remember the name) has always been with us kind, professional ... and he took a lot of souvenir photos that we will always take with us. thank you!
