Very well organised, did not expect a very nice air-conditioned saloon with driver and tour guide! Perhaps we were just lucky I don't know?! Well worth the trip and great fun. Yes it is a long day, but very good value for money and the markets were more enjoyable than I was expecting!
The journey was long but worth it. The floating market was very touristy but also very different. The grave site of those killed building the railway is beautifully kept by the Thai people. The bridge site was interesting but was not actually at the point where the original bridge was built but it gave you an idea of the location. The guide was excellent.
This was an outstanding experience: excellent guide an driver! The guide must be praised for a perfectly organised excursion, for his kindness and his culture as well as his fluency in English and the very informative comments he made throughout the tour. I warmly recommend this tour especially with this guide on 19th October 2015.
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.
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.
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
GREAT TOUR, The tour guide went out of her way to pick me up from my hotel that was not on the list, the guide and the driver were very nice and explained the history very well. I really enjoyed myself
Very good communication. Called my hotel and confirmed pick up time at my hotel two days prior to tour. The tour itself was great. Our guide was awesome. This is worth every penny.
The floating market was the most unique tour/adventure, and I highly recommend going there during your stay in Bangkok. You see locals selling meat, coconuts, crepes, and ice creams in little vessels. The Bridge on the River Kwai was interesting as well. Our tour guide was great!
Excellent day. Really enjoyed the long boat ride on the canal.
A great day out with a fantastic lunch and an informative guide. The floating market is a tourist trap but is great fun and it is just a short walk to where more authentic houses stretch along the canal banks. Plenty of time at the Bridge over the River Kwai, to walk over and back.
Excellent tour but the information did not explain the additional charges that we incurred to boat travel and visit to Tigers. We were not prepared for these additional charges.
River Kwai visit excellent and very good explanation given.
Fantastic tour. Floating market was brilliant and trip to Kwai Bridge and then the museum and war grave was very humbling. Would recommend
Wonderful experience. Great fun shopping from a small boat and stopping at various vendors along the river.
This tour was absolutely fantastic. Several experiences in one, and great for the price. We had a good amount of time to explore each area of the tour. Our guide was helpful and knowledgeable but allowed us to explore each area on our own so we still had our own experience without being lead around in a line. I have been raving about this since I got back, by far the best thing I did in Thailand.
The floating market was excellent and great fun, and we saw the museum and cemetery for the death railway on the way to the Bridge on River Kwai. We also stopped for a nice lunch.
We had a great trip worth the money, had a very good lunch.
I would recommend this trip.
