PATRICK FROM KUALALUMPUR


We booked the tour to Ayutthaya with friendlygointer.com and it turned out excellent.


We found Ms. Am--my friendly travel agent who always kept us updated about Thai political conflict and convinced us


the timing I would come to Bangkok was still safe for everyone in my family. I appreciated everyone who wrote


his review that made us easier to make a quick decision about the agency that I should come along or avoid them.


Chen was really amazing guide. He was very professional in timing, history and accommodating. Chen told us about


Thai history and crucial battle between Ayuttaya and Myanmar. Once we got on a beautiful clean van until we arrived


in bangpain summer summer palace and continued told us thai history and Lord buddha again when we finished visiting


the summer palace. The Thai history told by our knowledgeable guide was clear that made us understood why Ayuttaya


was burnt for 7 days and was turned into ashes. We would surely inform all of our friends who's coming to bangkok


to deal with friendlygointer.com as we would never have learned so much and known Thailand's well enough without


guide Chen and Am.

MS. JESSICA FROM LONDON


We decided to go to Ayutthaya with friendlygointer and it's the fantastic trip for all history lover. Once I got into


the ruins, I felt I walked back into the past. Tawee my guide explained us about the fierce war between ayuttaya and


burma that made us know much more about thai history. I was really impressed with archaeological and historical sites


especially the buddha's head which's wrapped in the bothi tree root. It was so peaceful but remained its power.


To show respect by kneeling down in front of the buddha's head and got photo taken for a keepsake, was the key attraction


of the day. This ruins temple is a must visit site that I was pleased I did it before I leave Thailand.


Thanks very much for friendlygointer that made our trip smooth, safe and memorable forever. The guide was informative,


told us a lot about history and what we should and shouldn't do under emergency decree, while the driver drove a car


very carefully with his high skill. Will definitely recommend all of my friends to you.

MR. SCOTT FROM LONDON


I had a dream of going to the ruin of Ayutthaya--the old capital of Thailand as I was told Ayutthaya has never rebuilt


and the area was declared a Unesco world heritage site since 1981. Once the reservation was confirmed online, we were informed


by e-mail about what we should and shouldn't do, also what we should take it with us like umbrella, sunglasses,


sunblock, etc. so the tour went smoothly the whole day. Exciting war between Thai and Burma history was told clearly


by our guide all the way long to Ayutthaya by comfortable brand new van. Hence when we were in Ayutthaya we had no wonder


why temples turned into ruins and were deeply impressed by Thai architecture. We and our guide walked along side by side


without rush, plenty of time to explore temples and thing around them. It was extremely great to take time as we had


children with us. Lots of photos were taken again and again. It was my unforgetable moment. Elephant riding among ruin


temples was really amazing and also the highlight of the day. If you want relaxing tour, I highly recommend this travel agency.

MR. RUSH FROM SCOTLAND


Around one hour drive with excellent toll road, I took a full day tour to visit the ruins and history of Ayutthaya.


Such a beautiful place, the contrast between ruins, green grass and blue sky, picturesque. Go back to the past to see


lots of things accompanied by excellent guide that blew me away with big surprise. Thanks friendlygointer.com for providing


us such a great tour.

MS. ANNA FROM SWEDEN


I have enjoyed Ayutthaya very much on my private day trip. It was my 1st experience with Friendlygointer.com and


they did good job with excellent services. The tour agent was helpful and the guidance was up to standard.


The guide explained a lot about history of Thailand with fluent English that made me and our family clear about


the exciting war that happened in Ayutthaya and the important of temple to Thai people. Boat trip around ayutthaya


island and elephant riding were worth the extra money optional tour. Thai set lunch in Ayuttaya was recommend.


It was a memorable trip of my life. I would recommend my other friends and relatives to contact friendlygointer.

MS. NICOLE NEWZEALAND


We booked the trip by mail with friendly tour and it was excellent. The program looked not very suitable to our plan


Chen was my guide who showed us The summer palace and the world heritage Ayutthaya including a must visit amazing ruin


temples, lots of photo opportunities and delicious lunch. Wonderful day out with good memory which was truly enough


for a day tour. On the way back to the hotel we slept well in our comfortable a/c van as we're tired and it was


a hot day. We really enjoyed our time.
