Ayutthaya Tour from Bangkok

A Bangkok Excursions tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Bangkok in the morning to begin our fantastic day tour from Bangkok to Ayutthaya.

Bangkok Tour to the Ancient Siamese Capital of Ayutthaya

With over a million inhabitants, the ancient Siamese capital city of Ayutthaya was once the largest city in the world. By 1700 people from all over the world set sail for Ayutthaya to set-up merchant links with this massive trading City. These merchants went on to proclaim Ayutthaya "the finest City ever seen" with it's gold-laden palaces, large palaces and trading vessels.

Ayutthaya's place as a world power soon came to an abrupt ending when in 1767 the Burmese invaded Ayutthaya and burnt the city down, leaving today only glimpses of just how spectacular the City once was.

Most of the remains are of Ayutthaya's beautiful temples and palaces with their famous prang and large monasteries which characterise the city. The remains of this culturally and historically significant City became A UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 and today is a very popular destination for travellers visiting Bangkok.

Bang-Pa-In Summer Palace

After visiting Ayutthaya and the summer palaces of Thailand's kings, well make our way back to the center of Bangkok along the Chao Phraya river on a comfortable river cruiser.

Ayuthaya Tour from Bangkok with Buffet Lunch on River Boat
Just returned from another fabulous holiday in Bangkok and wanted to share my positive feelings regarding the excellent service we received from the team at Bangkok Excursions.

Everyone we dealt with was professional, friendly, happy and extremely knowledgable. They made our day and made every tour with them an enormous amount of fun.

We booked a number of tours with them and were delighted with them all, particularly the Ayuthaya tour from Bangkok which was absolutely amazing. You can fully appreciate why the temple is a UNESCO world heritage site - absolutely amazing.

Book with these guys and I promise you will not be disappointed!

Ayuthaya Tour from Bangkok with Buffet Lunch on River Boat
We also done the Ayutthaya tour from Bangkok which was very good, the temple itself was beautiful and nicer than the ones in Bangkok in our opinion. Our guide was lovely as always and like all the Thai's wed had the pleasure of dealing with, was very attentive to our needs, friendly and funny.

I would say this was my second favourite tour we done out of four, we haven't stopped showing the family and friends pictures since we got back

Ayuthaya Tour from Bangkok with Buffet Lunch on River Boat
Just come back from Thailand and we had the most amazing day in Bangkok thanks to BangkokExcursions. They picked us up on time, and every run exactly to plan.

Our guide was AMAZING and very funny and friendly, really made the day for us.

The trip itself is brilliant, Ayutthaya is even more beautiful in real life than in pictures, as was all the areas we visited.
