So much to see, it is hard to believe it can be covered in one day.

Interesting tour to be able to visit the floating market. However, would have been better if the trip includes the paddle boat ride. Currently, there will a need to pay additional 200 baht per pax to the tour guide in order to ride on the paddle boat.

Great tour taken from Bangkok city. Tour guide adequate, perhaps could have offered more general information and been more interactive considering we were fortunate to have four people on tour. It is a long day of travel, which is broken up with stops to the designated sights. Interesting travelling on loval roads which gives a good impression of both country and city life. Markets very interesting, Bridge on River Kwai museum interesting.

We were informed that pick up will be at 06:10 to avoid traffic. But we were picked up more than an hour later. By the time the other 2 couples were picked up, we hit the Bangkok traffic. We arrived at the Floating market around 10:30 and was given only an hour to savour the place. Had we been picked up on time, we might have more time here.
We have enjoyed our time at the Floating market albeit brief, and we have also enjoyed the visit to JEATH museum and Bridge on the River Kwai.

floating market was great! Would def. do it again! Couple of interesting stops along they way. It help to break up the length of the trip! Lots of things to buy and eat at the market. Very interesting to see the floating kitchens! Bridge was just a bridge.

We enjoyed our trip to Floating Market and Bridge on River Kwai. We were very well looked after by the Tour Guide and since the group was small, we all got to know each other well.

The whole day was interesting with a very good guide. The floating market, wood carving, river Kwai memorial and bridge.

Our guide was excellent and timely. The floating markets were a wonderful experience of colour and the Bridge over the River Kwai well worth a look. There was a lot to do in one day and if we had a longer stay in BKK, we would have done them separately. The lunch was awesome too :-)

A very full and interesting day and the guide was very knowledgeable. As it was low season, I was the only person on the tour, but they still ran it. The floating market is interesting, but a bit more expensive than bigger markets.

FLOATING MARKETS CERTAINLY AN EXPERIENCE. TOO MUCH IN YOUR FACE PRESSURE SELLING THOUGH. KWAI EXPERIENCE VERY GOOD. DIFFICULY TO ENVISAGE HOW IT WAS THOUGH WITH MANY HOTELS AND A NEW BRIDGE NOW IN PLACE. NEVERTHELESS A GOOD NOSTALGIC VISIT. LONG DAY BUT WORTH IT. CHOSE THIS TRIP AS OPOSE TO THE ONE WITH THE TRAIN JOURNEY AS THE FLOATING MARKETS ARE A BETTER BET.
