What You Can Expect
Start your full-day tour with pickup from selected hotels in Bangkok, then travel by comfortable coach to the town of Kanchanaburi, located 80 miles (130 km) west. You’ll journey through the Thai countryside where sugarcane, rice paddies and pineapple plantations fill significant portions of the rural landscape.
You’ll visit graves of the Allied Forces on a tour of the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery before a look at historical photographs and paintings at the JEATH War Museum — prepare for an emotionally moving experience at both sites.
Learn about the building of the infamous bridge that was to link a direct railway line from Bangkok to Rangoon in an effort to support the Japanese occupation of Burma (now Myanmar) in 1943. An exhilarating long-tailed speedboat ride will take you down the River Kwai to the bridge, where you have ample time to explore on your own. Then hop aboard the ‘Death Railway’ for a memorable — and scenic — ride.
Your day’s itinerary includes a Thai restaurant lunch before you’re returned to your Bangkok hotel.
Amazing trip to see a piece of history, well worth the money!

a long day 6am to 6pm but worth every penny .cannot fault in any way perfact.
A long day, 11 hours door to door but well worth the time and the money. Everything was very well organised and our guide was great, he couldn't do enough to make it a great day for us and to help us get the best pictures in the best spots. Unusually I think the advertised write up does not do this tour justice as it was better than we expected by including a near 2 hour ride on the death railway train after reaching the bridge over the river Kwai by exhilarating speedboat ride. All in all, well worth it, best thing we did over 4 days in Bangkok.
Excellent and very informative tour guide
Excellent value for money. Very moving to see and would have no hesitation in recommending as a must see. Only negative is the return journey home to Bangkok as long but still worth doing the trip.
While I highly recommend this tour, I would really like it better if they would have left us with more time at the museum reconstruction of the camp. We were a little rushed through there and didn't have time to read all of the information.
The guide had an excellent amount of knowledge. The food at lunchtime was very good.
Excellent. The entire trip was superb. I happened to be the only one on the trip but I was treated to a great train journey and an informative guide who was excellent. A great day and some fantastic scenery. The JEATH museum was worth seeing was interesting and showed what life must have like for the prisoners of war. Would recommend this trip.
Another good value viator tour. Guide was easy to ask questions of and there was time to see things. Lunch was yummy too.
