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
A brilliant choice. Quite a long day but the guide was so knowledgeable and managed to guide us through the formalities with ease. Well worth a day out and was actually the highlight of our stay in Bangkok.
It was just me, the driver, and the guide in a Mercedes. It doesn't get better than that!
I took this tour on my birthday! It was awesome. We took a side trip and rode elephants. It was great!
This was a fantastic tour and all the better for taking the private tour. It was very moving and definitely our best trip to date. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we made the most of time at Kanachanaburi. We loved it!
This was something that I was not looking forward to and the experience is very humbling. The guide was excellent and was worth the money. Would recommend.
The trip was fantastic and the tour guide was fun to be with and had good knowledge of the trip.
The trip was well organised and we loved it but had a problem understanding the guide.
Four of us did this as a private trip. It's a long day but worth it. The guide was excellent. The visit to the war graves was very moving, and again the visit to the pow camp museum was very interesting although on a previous trip some Yeats ago I remember there being a lot more information and personal stories within the museum which really brought home the horror and the bravery of the prisoners. Perhaps as there is a greater level of tourism in the area some of the exhibits have moved? We really enjoyed the short boat ride to the bridge and the trip on the train was interesting and a chance to see more of the agricultural side of the area.
Great for those interested in the real history of the Railway and Bridge.
We are pleased we made the trip which covered everything described in the internet itinerary. Our guide was very chatty and seemed to think he had to talk to us all the time - it is a long way from Bangkok to the River Kwai.
Our highlights were walking across the bridge and the train ride which takes you across the original tracks.
If you have limited time but want to get the River Kawi Bridge and Death Railway this is a good way.
We never felt like we were short on time, our guide Yai would always give us a brief outline and then let us go. The JEATH Museum could be skipped as it is very run down and needs work badly.
This was a good trip. An early start and a full day. The whole trip is decided by the train times, so occasionally we would have liked more time in certain places. Quite a moving experience, but well worh doing. The train ride was something else - well recommended
