Worldtrip Berlin Tip: Do not book an expensive tour from Bangkok, better take the train and rent a bike or scooter near the station

My personal experience

Bangkok Central Railway Station (Hua Lamphong)
Sam Sen Station

Once arrived in Ayutthaya there are several options to rent bikes or scooters. As Ayutthaya isn’t big, I decided to take the bike, what is cheaper. Even the main sights are spread all over the city, I think that there is no need to take a scooter as long you are okay with missing some smaller temples.

Worldtrip Berlin Tip: Get a good map of the city and take some time to plan wise which temples you want to visit in which sequence to save time and power (if you are by bike).
