This was a great trip to take. The cemetry was heart rending, especially after travelling the railway and imagining the horror of how these people were pushed to their limits. We had a wonderful guide called Gail - worth asking for.

A long but very worthwhile day. Raw emotions at the cemetery but an experience not to be missed. Trip was well organised, and arriving at the bridge by boat was a fantastic way to arrive and the train trip was really worthwhile with breathtaking scenery at the end. Lunch as well, thanks Mr Tawee!

Excellent tour guide, Yai, made this a memorable day. Walking across the bridge one felt the pain on the POWs and Thai labourers. The long tail boat ride up the river to the bridge was fun and provided a much welcome breeze to relief the heat (41c). Our train ride on a local train was an enjoyable experience. Lunch was tasty and there was a good variety to suit everyone. A must see tour when visiting Thailand.

A very good day tour but be prepared for for two hours travel from Bankok central each way.

This trip was fantastic. A complete and comprehensive day. We visited the Death Railway museum, rode on a speedboat up the river Kwai to the steel bridge where we stopped off to take photos and cross the bridge. Visited the war graves of British, Dutch and Australian soldiers. Finally boarded an ancient wooden train to travel along the Death Railway. At the end of the line we were taken to a forest restaurant for a marvelous buffet lunch. The guide was very informative about the trip and on the way to the first part of the visit gave us a brief insight into the Thai way of life at present. A must do trip
