    I booked this tour and received a confirmation of the hotel pickup time. I waited and waited, but they never showed up and never communicated with me. I had to go back and get a refund. I would definitely never book through Big Country Vacations again.

    - Hoteltransfer ist gut, sehr pünktlich, - Besuch der alten Paläste/Statuen/ Tempel gut u. angenehm per Bus, Pausen werden eingelegt (Toi.), - Tourguide spricht nicht so gutes Englisch u. hört sich gerne Reden, - ... dann der Wechsel zur Mittagszeit auf das schon in die Jahre gerade Ausflugsboot: kaltes Mittagsbüfett !!!!!! und geschmackloser Kaffee/Tee später.... wirklich grottenschlecht und sein Geld nicht wert ! Schade..... :-( ( durchgeführt am Samstag, 09.02.2019, 06:30 - 16:15 Uhr, gebucht über EMIRATES-Portal, € 48,68/Pers. ).

    N’espérez pas visiter Ayutthaya avec cette excursion : le bus ne fait que 3 arrêts au pas de course sur des sites qui ont peu d’intérêt. Aucun des sites incontournables d’Ayutthaya n’est visité (Wat Chai Watthanaram, Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon...). La guide débite son discours sur un ton monocorde dont on a du mal à suivre, sauf quand il s’agit d’insister pour acheter des babioles sur les stands. A peine 1h30 à Ayutthaya et déjà direction le palais de Bang Pa-In : c’est assez joli mais aucun intérêt historique. On a préféré à ce moment là quitter la visite et repartir en tuk tuk à Ayutthaya et profiter du reste de la journée pour visiter tranquillement la ville. Retour à Bangkok par nos propres moyens (il y a des vans toutes les 20min, 120 baths). Bref, une excursion qui n’a aucun intérêt.

    Een geweldige tourorganisatie voor uw reizen door de omgeving van Bangkok. Heb gekozen voor hun ayutyha tour. Een geweldige rondreis met bus en boot. Een aanrader.

    There seems to be so many tour companies marketing an identical agenda (with varying price tags), that it was hard to find the appropriate place to write a review! We booked through Big Country Vacations and our guide was Donna, who did an excellent job of imparting her great knowledge of her country's history and culture, with good humour and warmth! We were picked up promptly and the time spent either on the shuttle round Bangkok, or on the large bus needs to be regarded as part of the overall experience, as you are getting to see the city and country! Although it would've been nice to spend more time in those magnificent temple ruins - which is why most people book the tour - the palace grounds are huge and need the hour to see, whereas the shorter time at the ruins was enough to wander about, clicking madly for the memories to mull over later! White Orchid cruises provided a lunch that was beyond our expectations- really, really nice food! I'll dream of that spicy prawn soup for years to come!! It was magic to watch the temples drift by, and the landscape change, until docking in the busy heart of the city. We totally enjoyed our day and consider it excellent value! Thank you!

    L’escursione ad Ayutthaya merita davvero tanto. Il sito è grande e bellissimo. Con questa agenzia ci siamo trovati bene e la guida era preparata e cordiale. Il ritorno viene fatto con una grande nave da crociera fluviale con pranzo a bordo ma il viaggio risulta troppo lungo (circa 3 ore)
