Ayutthaya Tour Guide

I've already booked a private car tour via Happy Taxi (3,700 baht) for full day Bang Pa In and Ayuttayah tour. I also inquired about a tour guide to them and they quoted me 2,000 baht plus 4% paypal fee.

1. Is it worth it to hire a tour guide? or the signs in the places already enough for us to know about the history of each place?

2. Are there licensed tour guides within Ayutthaya park that we can hire just in case we want one when we are there already? Maybe a more affordable (fee) one?

Suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank you very much!

Licensed guides do not hang out and wait for clients, they are booked ahead and often through agencies. I would not hire a guide.

Instead take a food tour or do some other fun excursion
