This tour was awesome. We were picked up very early at our hotel in BKK and driven around all over the place. The vehicle was clean and the AC was quite nice. I think the tour is usually packed, but for whatever reason, my GF and I were the only two people attending, so everything was tailored to us.
The view and experience is pretty awesome when you're on the boat house. I'd suggest bringing bug-spray since one of the stops had a lot of bugs, but overall it was awesome. The food on the boathouse is very good and it is all served in large portions, so you might pack on a few pounds! Would highly recommend this tour.
We went on the River Kwai Trip in July.
The trip was fantastic and very enjoyable.
The Guide was absolutely superbextremely knowledgeablefriendly and helpful.
I will certainly recommend this trip to friends.
Excellent - no words to describe.
This was a really first class experience! We had a wonderful and very informative day with Vinnie who picked us up from our hotel, kayaked with us down the River Kwai, took us for a delicious Thai lunch, and then we cycled our way around Kanchanaburi and out to the war cemetery and through local villages. Our bike route was slightly modified from itinerary due to it being wet season, however we were not disappointed. Thank you so much Vinnie for giving us a great day! Highly recommended to all travellers visiting Kanchanaburi.
What a great day the tour the driver and the guide were fantastic .
It was like a family day out it was like we had know them for years.
They were so knowledgable and friendly.
Would recommend this trip to everyone.
Long travel times but well worth the trip! Great information and histroy provided by tour guide, we did pay 300 bhart each to go into a better carriage on the train but it was well worth it as we got a private seat, food and drinks.
A very seamless, heart-rending and overwhelming experience. As a grand daughter of a WWII veteran and POW, this tour meant so much to me.
I was picked up promptly at the hotel and the trip to Kanchanaburi was very informative and comfortable. After the visit to the cemetery, we went on a short boat ride under the Death Bridge. Upon disembarking, our tour guide gave us time to explore and take photos while he purchased our train tickets.
The train ride was very refreshing, however, you could feel how overwhelmed everyone was, the moment we traversed the Hellfire Pass.
This is definitely a trip that should be in a Bangkok traveller's itinerary.
This was a GREAT tour! My fiancée and I were the only members of the tour group, and the tour guide and driver were very professional and accommodating in our desires to emphasize certain areas of the trip. We never felt rushed to get moving from one destination to the next. The accommodations were also GREAT. I most highly recommend this trip for those interested in learning the history and culture of this area in Thailand.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip, it was well organised and the tour guide was informative. Good value for money.
We all really enjoyed the tour. The guide we had was lovely and very informative.
We were a party of 5 from aged 14 to adults.
I would definitely recommend this to everybody.
Excellent trip and Souvenirs ! I definitely recommend it
The 2 hours train trip is really worth it, and so was the fantastic Lunch we had on that day
We spend the day with our 2 kids 118 who also appreciate the entire day
Only one bad souvenir of the way to go back to bangkok who took 4 hours , but I guess there is not much that can be done about that..
Well worth the money...
Great tour, delicious lunch, first class all the way
We had a great day, our guide was a wealth of knowledge about all things Thailand and a lot of fun. The day was definately worthwhile.
great guide, great food and great service
This tour was amazing!
We really enjoyed the trips, both places were amazing. Our only negative comments would be that the bus had poor air conditioning and the windows were very dirty. When you are on a tight schedule you sometimes need to take photos out of the window and this was impossible.
From kick up to drop it was a great day... alot more included than expected.
An extremely interesting and thought provoking trip. Excellent
Very good tour, but perhaps prefer a bit more time at River Kwai, and less at the coconut place. To go to hellfire pass would have been good, but maybe I had wrong tour. Lunch delicious
Our guide was the best and very concerned to ensure we got the best of service and adventure on this tour. What a Wonderful trip that offered such a grand afternoon of seeing so much in a day. The ride out to site see Bangkok and the area leading to the River Kwai. Learning more of the historical significance of this site which is what drew me to venture here in the first place and seeing the railway up close was great. Even being able to walk upon it and ride the railway over the bridge and through a very scenic countryside. Quite an amazing place and the tour was well organized and well worth the travel from Bangkok city to get more of what Thailand offers. Just a great country. Don't miss this tour!
This was a very long day and you cant help but be moved by the history invloved. The guide was extremely helpful and his knowledge was very extensive. The train trip was excellent, as was the lunch provided. However, the trip back was done at such a speed that left all of us wondering if we would actually survive! Thai East need to re-evaluate their drivers! The other family with us thought that we had missed out on a stop on the return journey, they had done this trip previously, and we arrived back at our hotel over an hour and half early! I would definitely recommend this trip but only with another driver!!!
Loved this tour and so glad we choose the private tour as our guide was great. Full of useful information. Took us to see the railway markets which was a bonus. The bridge and cemetery was spin chilling to think what these people went through. Definitely pay the extra 150 THB to do the boat which takes you up past all the market stalls. Very unique experience.
This tour was amazing!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Anyone who has an interest in history should. The combination of the boat ride to the bridge and then the train trip on the actual railway was great. The cemetery was very moving. Do get the upgrade on the train. Yes the ride by minivan was quite long but you do get to see the suburbs of Bangkok as well. Lunch was also very good.
