The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable of the site visited. We thought the tour would be in a small group with other tourists, but we were pleasantly surprised that it's a private tour

Thank you for taking the tour with Mam Holidays Ltd! Glad to know that you liked it. Looking forward to see you again soon with us in Thailand!
Tour of Ayutthaya

Our guide was excellent explaining the history of Ayutthaya and the ruins , the Reclining Buddha and the Golden Buddha. It was an excellent tour of the original capital of Thailand.
Ayutthaya tour
, Feb 2020
This was a fantastic tour option, it was worth the extra money. We opted out of visiting the Grand Palace to visit the ancient city of Ayutthaya. I definitely recommend doing this tour instead of the Grand Palace if you only have time for one. Our driver and our tour guide, Mrs. Aey were amazing! They were completely attentive, full of knowledge and very polite. We visited probably around 5-6 temples with numerous structures and things to see. Water was provided throughout the trip and we had a nice buffet lunch. Mrs. Aey even volunteered to take photos of us. The vehicle we toured in was very clean and new, and the drive was not bumpy and very comfortable.
Fantastic tour
, Dec 2019
My wife and I booked this tour at the last minute late at night and were so glad we did. The following morning we were met promptly at our hotel by our tour guide called Siri. She was a Thai lady who could communicate very well in English and was well organised and very pleasant. Following a 1 hour drive, which included a planned comfort break we visited all the key sites in Ayutthaya which were visually breathtaking. Throughout the day our tour guide Siri was very knowledgeable and informative and knew all the best spots for photo opportunities. The buffet lunch also provided was excellent with plenty of choice. Overall a fantastic tour not to be missed and our thanks to Siri for being so friendly and professional.

Excellent tour. Private transportation with no delays. I enjoyed the tour and got to see many historic locations in Thailand. The tour guide was great. She knew her history and spoke English very well. I highly recommend this tour as a family or solo.
Hot but inspiring
, Sep 2019
Hat, sunscreen and sunglasses are a must to enjoy your day. We especially enjoyed the summer palace and hearing the history of the ruins at Ayutthaya from our knowledgeable guide Ms A. We did have a little trouble understanding her soft voice, but she was more than willing to participate in our choices and level of activity in the high heat.
Amazing day tour!

Amazing day tour! Our guide was very friendly and gave us a lot of information at all of the sites. Highly recommend--Ayutthaya is beautiful!
Overpriced private tour for couple
, May 2019
We are disappointed with the tour, as we expected a proper English speaking tour guide willing to share information about the sites that we were taken. What we get was more of a private taxi tour. Given the price we paid for this private tour for two (326 USD), it was not worth it for us. If we would have taken taxis or rent a car with driver for the day, we would have paid around a third. Keep in mind, the food and tickets are quite cheap, for two people it did not cost more than 25-30 USD. Please note, the company has cheaper prices on the website. At the moment the same tour with MAM Holidays on their site costs around 260 USD for two. The guide woman was nice, she tried to do her best (more or less), but the English level was quite poor. Maybe a bit too much to expect in Thailand?! The sites are nice, but this tour is way too expensive for what it advertises.

The tour was excellent! The guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. We did book for 4 people, but only 3 were able to go. The guide, Sasa said that you would refund $125.00 tomy credit card. I have not received any information regarding this. If you could please email me at with any details that I can supply you with to facilitate the refund. Again, thank you and Sasa for a wonderful day. Marilyn Schatz

Our guide was very friendly and highly informative. Miss Supatsara Wonghong continually ensured that we were having a good time and that we had what we needed to enjoy the tour, whether that be water, an umbrella to escape the heat, or easy access to a restroom.

The only way to see Ayutthaya is with a guide and driver. The city is very expansive and without a guide it would be overwhelming. Rose spoke excellent English and was able to shepherd us through the archeology, provide spiritual context, explain the history of who built the city as well as the stories of many invasions. We covered many areas and each was more beautiful than the one before. I should also mention the amazing buffet lunch. It was an extraordinary day made meaningful with the help of our guide and driver. As I said at the beginning, this is the only way to visit Ayutthaya.

firstly about the company - this was the 3rd time i used Mam Holidays Ltd for a tour in Bangkok. Very professional and prompt. . The cars are very comfortable, driver is good and guides knowledgeable. After visiting over 60 countries and doing tours in most, i have found the best guides are passionate about their country/city, and the guides that work for Mam Holidays Ltd certainly are, especially the lady that i've had as a tour guide twice Miss Supatsara Wonghong Khun Aey. As far as the sites go, if you like temples and palaces this is a must from Bangkok. I've included some pics so you know what you will see.

Tour guide was nice and considerate, but her English was so bad we couldn't understand 90 of the things she said, nor could she understand most of our questions. There's not real added value than hiring a taxi and tour around myself.

We had the best time with Aey in Ayutthaya -- wonderful service where she and her driver picked us up from our hotel in Bangkok and embarked on a day long trip in Ayutthaya. First we saw the summer palace and then we visited three Wats, in addition to picking up lunch. Because my mother was not feeling well, Aey was very considerate about the amount of walking, and also arranged for a vegetarian meal for lunch not easy in Thailand!. Aey was also easy to understand, and she also played the role of our photographer during the tour. Highly recommended, and extremely good value for the price.

We spent a full day tour with our guide Aey who was very knowledgeable of Thailands history and culture. She thoroughly explained all about Ayutthaya, and the different areas and temples we visited. Her quality was excellent and she answered our so many questions we had and detailed all the history behind. We had a wonderful experience and would recommend this tour highly. AYutthaya is a must in Bangkok if you really want to understand its history and heritage.
