Very informative and very organized tour, with ample time per temple
Jan 2020
This tour should be at the top of everyone's list. Extremely enjoyed this tour, plus we had a great guide Beer. He was very knowledgeable and explained the history of Ayutthaya in detail at every stop. Ample time was given for each attraction and plenty of photos were taken. The boat trip back was excellent and great food too

Tour guide is super infomative and fun! Schedule is on time, everything went smoothly. Ayutthaya is so interesting and very beautiful! and with our tour guide we get to know more about the history. The trip also included the lunch on board the boat and that was for us the best part of the day. I would recommend people to try this!

Jan 2020
wonderful day and loved our guide. My only complaint is that i would skip the Summer Palace, or shorten it up greatly in order to give more time at Wat Maha That. far too short there.. very rushed and the guide didn't have the time to fully describe.. This to me was the most important stop of the day and it was one of the shorter stops... Think the explanation should be clearer as to how long you are on the ship (which i loved by the way) but i know some were disappointed...

Hello gailbV899MK, Sorry to hear that you would have enjoyed more time at the temples. You have 4 stops here and also the summer palace which is also included. Next time let the guide know and they can change this while on tour. Regards, Nick

Excellent visit to the temples!!!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We took this tour, it was amazing! The tour guide knew great English was very informative and explained each ruin/temple and all the history. I highly recommend this trip. We took a trip the next day as well using a service advertised on the street (for an elephant tour). They picked my wife and me up (individually) on a Vespa, and the rest of the days production wasn’t better. Zero information about where we were going next was put out, we were just corralled into the can to the next stop. One guy even canceled the rest of his 2 day tour to come back after 1 day.

All that to say, the trip was great through this service! Be weary of street advertised tours.

Disappointed, tour should be required to give more details
Anyone expecting a full day tour, prepare to be disappointed. Firstly, we were notified the evening before the trip that river cruise return to Bangkok was not possible, and after bus back there was a lunch cruise in Bangkok only. We accept that it was out of the control of the operators but apologies or compensation was lacking. This was our last day in Bangkok so rescheduling was not possible.

However, excited to see the many wonderful sights in Ayatthaya we embarked on the tour with an open mind and expectations of a wonderful day out. Unfortunately the tour didn't even come close to expectations as a day out actually was only half a day. We only stopped at 4 places, the temple area with Buddha's head in the tree roots, an area with a large Buddha laying down (free entry), a small but beautiful temple (free entry), and the Royal families Summer Palace.

It really did seem that we spent more time on the bus than viewing interesting and beautiful places. An evening cruise can be beautiful when the city is lit up after nightfall, but a day cruise is very disappointing.

Overall, this tour is poor value, badly planned and lacking in sightseeing experiences. The tour guide was a lovely gentlemen but his English accent was difficult to understand sometimes. Personally I feel it would have been better to spend the money on renting a car and visiting more wonderful places in the historic Ayatthaya area and then enjoyed an night cruise in Bangkok.

Except for the Summer Palace, time allowed at the first was brief averaging about 20mins at each location. This was a little rushed for 2 of the locations. 1hr at the Summer Palace proved to be long considering only one building was hosting a museum, and everything else was only viewable from exterior.

Dear iGRiMR3AP3R, Thank for your comments and its great that I have a a chance to respond. This is a full day tour picking up at 730am and finishing at 430pm. We did call you to explain that the itinerary changed and you accepted this change. We could have refunded you 100% but you decided to join the tour, we have to make that clear. The boat was cancelled from Ayutthaya as there was a parade and the local authorities stopped all cruises that day. We never said you would stay a full day in Ayutthaya as this is not the tour that you booked. It does say that you visit the best 4 areas before boarding the boat for your lunch and then cruise back to Bangkok. I feel that the itinerary you expected was not what we offered and I do not know if read the itinerary of the day before you booked or if this was booked through an agent, they should also pass this on to you. Thanks and Regards, Nick

Good tour & guide
Nov 2019 • Solo
Picked up spot on time. Good transport and very good guide. Big disappointment was not being able to take the boat directly back from Ayutthaya to Bangkok due to Royal Barge Procession rehearsals and Navy had blocked river. However this was NOT tour company fault. Instead we drove back to Bangkok and did a two hour river tour which was quite boring. Lunch on board however was excellent. Would recommend and maybe do again this time with proper boat ride.

Dear marknG2996JG, I am so sorry your boat was cancelled on the way back. This is very unfortunate as the local authority usually sends us warning if they have any rehearsals so we can advise the clients. I hope this did not ruin your day. Thanks for the great comments also on the food which you enjoyed, Regards, Nick

Fantastic tour, great lunch on the river
Nov 2019
We had an excellent time on our full day Ayutthaya excursion with I Asia Thailand. We were picked up from our hotel and shuttled to an air conditioned and comfortable motor coach that took us to Ayutthaya from Bangkok. On the way, our guide Lek who spoke English very well, told us about different historical and cultural Thai facts. We first stopped the Summer Palace and spent a good amount of time there. About half the time was spent with our guide and then we had some time to walk around by ourselves. The guide and her information was excellent.

From there, we went to the ruins of Ayutthaya. We saw the face of the Buddha in the tree which was amazing and were guided around the ruins and told the stories of what happened back in history that lead to the capital of Thailand to be moved to Bangkok.

Next, we went to see a beautiful golden Buddha inside the temple. From there, we bussed to another temple where the longest reclining Buddha in Thailand is located and it was really stunning and we took many pictures.

We then went to our boat where we enjoyed a wonderful ride down the Chao Phraya River and had a great Thai buffet lunch with a good assortment of tasty food including salads and hot dishes and a great choice of desserts. On the boat ride back, our guide told us more information about the different buildings and sites we passed on the river.

It was a really wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone that was going to Bangkok. Thanks to the staff at I Asia Thailand who were amazing.

value for money and a amazing day out
Oct 2019
Ayutthaya, the old capital city of Thailand is a magnificent place to visit. Full of preserved ruins, the place is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The guides were very helpful and friendly. overall a great day spent looking at the ruins. The highlight of the day was the Bang Pa In royal palace. 46 acres of Royal opulence at its best and the relaxing river trip back to Bangkok. The food was excellent! I highly recommended this trip.

wonderful day out to the ruins and boat trip
Oct 2019
This is a perfect tour to get a quick overview of Ayutthaya, the ruins and the summer palace. Time is enough in Ayutthaya at the sites with the guide explaining the ruins during the morning. She was very informative. We then took the boat cruise too. The food on the boat tour was excellent. The boat tour itself was worth the whole tour alone. It was amazing to see all the houses, buildings and Buddha’s along the river. The view coming into Bangkok was gorgeous from the boat.
