Private Tour: Ayutthaya Day Trip from Bangkok

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Pack in a full day of culture, history and cuisine on a private tour to the ancient Thai capital of Ayutthaya. A private guide escorts you to one of Ayutthaya’s oldest markets, the scattered ruins of several iconic temples in the UNESCO-listed city. Enjoy food tastings of traditional specialties, and have lunch on a docked rice barge. Round-trip minivan transport from Bangkok hotels is included.
  • Private Ayutthaya tour of the ancient Siamese capital from Bangkok
  • Taste boat noodles, a spun sugar dessert, and more
  • Travel in the comfort of a private vehicle
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Bangkok hotels
What to Expect
After pickup at your hotel, head to the onetime Siamese capital of Ayutthaya in a private vehicle, where your tour starts with boat noodles and other treats at one of the city’s oldest markets. Next, discover the ancient images of Buddha at Wat Mahathat and continue to Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, among the most important historic temples in Ayutthaya. Pause for lunch aboard a converted rice barge that’s docked on the Chao Phraya River and then head to Ayutthaya Historical Park to visit Wat Chaiwatthanaram. One of Ayutthaya’s sweetest treats is roti sai mai, a spun sugar dessert; get a firsthand look at how it’s made and try another local specialty at the temple market for a burst of energy after a full day of exploring temples. The day concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Bangkok.

Our tour guide made our excursion to these ruins so meaningful and educational. She absolutely thought of everything from hand wipes, refreshing cool drinks and snacks to fun side stops. Highly recommend this tour and our outstanding guide Anya.

Apart from the long journey times to and from the attractions (1.5 hrs each way) it was a great tour. Spectacular palaces/ temples and food tasting stops. Most of it is outdoors so not advisable in thchot season.
