We used our last day in Bangkok to tour on our own schedule. Our driver was awesome, knew the best temples, and dropped us at the airport for our flight. Way better than booking another hotel day.

Everything went well. Pon was my driver, very friendly and a good driver. He took me everywhere I wanted to go. He speaks english too. Perfect day and would book again.

Our driver Mr Odd was patient and polite. Nice and easy trip allowing us to explore at our leisure the wonders of Ayutthaya rich history and culture.
