Wasukri sub-district. The temple is located along Khlong Sra Bua and the north bank of

the Khlong Mueang just opposite the ancient Grand Palace. It was registered as a

This tour was very well organised and our tour guide was very informative and funny. The tour company rang our hotel the day before to give us an exact time of pick up. We traveled in an air conditioned coach and there was enough time at each stop to explore. Lunch on the boat coming down the river was superb and would accomodate most people’s taste or dietary requirements. The boat also had air conditioning which is important in a place like Bangkok. Even getting our mini bus home was a breeze. I would highly recommend this tour.

We weren't sure what to expect on this trip as our previous trip booked through La Vacanza Travel had been a bit disappointing, however, this was fantastic. We were picked up on time in front of our hotel and had a great guide called Rose. She was informative and funny and it gave us a flavour of history, culture and life in Thailand. The temples we visited were interesting and I felt we spent enough time at each place and the journey was really pleasant. The afternoon boat cruise was a real surprise, I'd expected lunch in a canteen and a little boat trip, so to get on a lovely boat with a huge buffet selection was lovely. My husband and son are vegetarian and they were brought special dishes to the table.
It was a fantastic trip and one I would recommend.

well organized tour. agent did a great job at trying to get a hold of us. van driver was very prompt at picking us up in our hotel. we then transferred to a tour bus after hotel pick-up. visit to bang pa in palace also included. we had fun riding the golf cart (for 400 thb) to go around the area. ayuttaya is a must see. chao praya cruise on the way back was amazing, topped up with delicious lunch buffet. you can never go wrong with this trip.

The guide and driver were nice and the temples and palaces were worth visiting. Thanks for the bottle of water, wet tissue and air-conditioned bus, I could tolerate the hot temperture in the middle of the day. The cruise meal was pleasant surprise since it was more than I expected.
