A must try. Really affordable and worth the price

My husband and I enjoyed this trip. The bus left on time at 0745am from the River Pier. The tour guide, Ms First, was engaging and had a lot of trivia about Bangkok and Ayutthaya. We went to three temples before proceeding to the cruise. The lunch buffet was delicious. We arrived back to the pier before 4 in the afternoon. A great day out
Great Tour, lots of fun and history

The entire day out was well organized and our guide, tip, shared such great information about the Thailand culture, temples and her home town of Ayutthaya where we went. With a few stops in Ayutthaya we thought things would feel rushed but actually it was just the right amount of time at each point. And the boat ride back to Bangkok, wow what a lunch - so many choices; and lots to see along the way. Terrific day all around and well recommended.
