Take a bike ride to explore temples of Ayutthaya. The first temple we'll visit is Wat Lokayasutharam Temple, where the giant reclining Buddha resides. The bike ride to get there would take around half an hour.
Lunch time! (Local food such as Pad Thai, and Stir-fried chicken with basil) Let's support the local!
Continue biking to visit Wat Phra Si Sanphet Temple. You'll see ruins of majestic royal palace with 3 restored towers. Next, we'll go to Wat Mahathat temple with more ruins, colorful shrines & a famed Buddha's head surrounded by tree roots.

Excellent day tour
My wife and I booked this tour at the very last minute via WhatsApp and the booking process was very easy. 'Tommy' was on time for our 0630 hours start, meeting us in our hotel lobby. He was very personable and his English was good. We opted for the floating market and railway market tour. The whole day was well planned to avoid the rush. Tommy was very flexible with the timings of the day which allowed us to spend longer at the floating market and experience the crowds.

Lovely, Splendid, Fulfilling
My biggest concern when booking this tour was my safety as I’m a female and I was travelling alone. I had just found out about Takemetour when I was doing extensive research regarding the best tour for solo travellers. However, after reading the Trust and Safety facts on the website I‘ve decided to give it a go. Prayuth T. arrives earlier than expected, which was a good start. The tour went as planned. We went to the places as stated in the itinerary. It’s a one on one tour so I said to him we do not have to rush as I do not have any other plans for the day. Thus, the tour’s timing was really flexible and we actually stretched the time a little further. In the itinerary it says that the tour will end around 1300pm but we ended the tour around 1800pm! Nevertheless, I do not mind it, in fact I really appreciate it as he’s willing to spend his time with me. I am an inquisitive person so I do asks him a lot of questions along the tour. He answered patiently and tried his best to give me the answers. We actually had a nice conversation throughout the day and we exchanged lots knowledge and information regarding various topics such as culture, religion, entertainment, nature, etc. Now I know more about Thailand and about Thai people. Prayuth T. also cares about his customer as he kept on asking if I am hungry or wanted to eat or wanted to try something new. I can see that he’s giving his best to serve his clients. Prayuth T.’s FAQs were right, I did get more than I expected and he did surprises me. If I’m going to Thailand again I will definitely seek for his tours if he is available. His English is considered good for a local Thai as most Thais do not speak English. For me it's the effort that matters, not perfection. Highly recommended him.
