This tour was recommended to us and we’re glad we booked it. It’s a must to visit the City of Ayutthaya to deepen your understanding of Thai history and culture. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tai took us around the sites and explained each part to us and answered all our questions. She took a lot of beautiful photos too. We were able to sample a variety of food in the restaurant and local market in Ayutthaya. Well rounded tour with a bit of everything.
Highly recommend touring Ayutthaya and Bangkok with tour guide Lift from Forever Vacations.

As we were unable to make the previous day’s Bangkok tour with the same company, our tour guide Lift gave us a combined Bangkok and Ayutthaya tour that included the Grand Palace. We had an incredible time. She was extremely knowledgeable, took fabulous photos, and made it a wonderful experience.
