Booked as a ship excursion by RCL using the Seatours company. Left at 9 am and got back at 7.15 pm due to the 3 hours bus trip between the port and Ayatthaya. First stop was the Pang-Pa In Palace of King Rama V where they provided self-drive golf carts fo9r us to get around. Lunch was at the Kantary Hotel - a very good international buffet lunch (included but only 290 Baht anyway). Next stop was Wat Maha That, which was one of those "wow!" moments - very impressive, especially the Buddha head in the tree roots. Drove past the elephant centre as rides are no longer being offered to RCL passengers due to complaints about animal cruelty. Our final "wow" moment was Wat Chai Wattanaram -delightful and most interesting. Bottled water and sanitary wipes were provided morning and afternoon. Overall it was a very entertaining day with our tourguide Jack.

Bus ride of 6 hours to and from too long. Elephant ride was one block long on a car infested city street.
Guide gave very little info. Only gave info when asked a question. and hard to understand.

A long drive for a short tour. We arrived and took golf carts around the palace. Wanted to see more ruins and historical sites, and were disappointed.

The worse part of the tour was the three hour drive there and back and the heat! The Tour itself was an enjoyable and enlightening experience and I would recommend it. Our tour guide gave us explanations that showed his passion for the areas where we explored. (Bang pa in and Ayuthaya, riding elephants and walking around Ruins) Some people complain about the 'greed' of the elephant park, but it is one of the most humane parks in Thailand and the money goes directly into the care and feeding of the animals (they eat a huge amount of food!). These are rescued elephants, mostly from logging industry, so scuttling tourist for their feed is 'easy' work for them. Their mahuts where considerate of their charges, ensuring they kept the elephants in the shade for much of the ride and letting them rest at intervals. It was well work the 3 hr drive!
