Ayutthaya Tour from Bangkok: Historical Park Temples & Palace

★★★★★★★★★★

5.0

An entertaining and interesting tour

The day started well. he was going to be running a little late due to traffic but contacted me early to let me know so I was not waiting outside. I appreciated that.

He was very knowledgeable and shared the sort of information in which I was interested. he knew a lot about Thai history and was happy to answer my questions as well as explaining about the old city.

The trip was smooth, the driving felt very safe and the organisation was well timed. We visited the places that might become

busy first so there were no crowds.

Lunch was brilliant- all delicious . Eddie was good company and was happy to take photographs of me and for me, he then shared the album to make sure it all worked before we arrived back home.

It was exactly the sort of day I had hoped for. Perfect

Thank you.

Had a great time

Eddy was very lovely and friendly. Picked us up in a clean and spacious car and we drove to the waterfalls. Had an hour to climb them then had a pad Thai for lunch. He then showed us the spring next to the waterfalls. Very enjoyable day.
