Ayutthaya Temples & Floating Market Tour by Private Car

★★★★★★★★★★

4.7

Kick-a** Ayutthaya adventure with a expert guide!

Arnon was a great guide! He knew so much about the history of Ayutthaya, as well as little tidbits of little-known information that were super interesting! Not to mention, his car is super duper comfy and the air conditioning was a blessed break from the intense heat. Additionally, my boyfriend and I are vegan and he happily took us to a different restaurant than planned to accommodate for our eating preferences -- so nice!

Arnon is the best tour guide ever. I can’t wait to come back to Thailand to learn more about the Thai culture. I recommend anyone who comes to Thailand to request Arnon.
