Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Private Tour: Floating Markets and Bridge on River Kwai Day Trip from Bangkok. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Having a private tour is well worth doing. The tour guide allowed us to do things in our own time, explained things fully, and gave us time alone to explore afterwards. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. You should be aware that the bridge is a little scary and dangerous as there are no sides. That might just be me worrying too much!
Our trip was perfect. The guide was great with the children and her English was near perfect. We were given cold scented towels after each stop, to cool us down and had a great day. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the bridge and its history, but be warned: the bridge is very very hot. It's well worth taking the private trip to make it a more personal day out, which allows you to take longer or shorter at the attractions you are interested in, rather than hanging around for others all the time.
That it was in a private car, it really was better en nicer to do.
A good chauffeur en guide led us around.
We were in Bangkok for a short time and tried to plan our activities wisely which is why we selected the private tour. We were very disappointed. The tour guide did not speak English very well nor was he very professional or knowledgeable. He didn't engage in conversation and he gave us a few facts but nothing substantial. The floating market was basically a tourist trap and we would have learned more about the Bridge on River Kwai if we found our own transportation and hired a tour guide on the premises.
