Full description

Travel from Bangkok in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle or choose to join the tour at your first stop in Ayutthaya, Wat Lokayasutha. This temple is known for its giant reclining Buddha image, one of the few structures remaining intact here. Your next stop is Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, being part of the royal palace complex this is where royalty performed rituals. It is considered the most important temple of Ayutthaya. Then, visit Wat Mahathat Ayutthaya. One of the oldest and most significant temples in the history of Ayutthaya, it once housed the Buddha's holy relic. Admire the famous Buddha head entwined within the roots of a Bodhi tree. After, tuck into a hearty lunch at a local Thai restaurant, where your guide will be available to advise on local culinary specialties.

Everything from communication before the trip, arrival at the meeting point, and the tour itself was great. Our guide, Sam, was very knowledgeable and involved everyone throughout his tour. He gave a lot of information about the temples and about Thailand and it’s language. I would highly recommend this tour!!

Sights were as described (old stones). The guide had explained everything well so far. Lunch was very simple and consisted of pad thai or spicy pork with rice. It would have been better to have more free time to explore the large complex. Overall, it was a nice day and the price-performance ratio is okay.

Very nice experience. We were picked up from Bangkok and brought back there at the end of the experience. The group consisted of only 10 people. This excursion allows you to enjoy the good humor and the expertise of Kiwi on Ayutthaya. We easily understood and liked this legendary city thanks to its explanations. Kiwi also took some great photos and videos for us with my wife. Finally we were invited to share a lunch in a local restaurant which was very good. Taking this excursion allowed us to see the most beautiful and important temples, save time and be accompanied by good people. I highly recommend !
