Enjoyed the trip. picked up on time. Very good guide.great day out.
A long journey in lots of traffic to get to the railway, but a fantastic trip on the train - well worth paying a bit extra to travel First Class. The traditional Thai meal provided in this trip was excellent
Well organised and very informative. It's a long day but very worthwhile.

A long day but well worth taking the time to visit the War Cemetery at Kanchanabouri, followed by the recreated PoW Camp and a short boat ride to the modern bridge over the medium size river that was the cause of so much misery during WW2. A well organised trip including a short journey by train over the bridge followed by lunch.
What a wonderful trip. Noi was so caring and thoughtful. She was very jovial and it was such a memorable holiday trip. I saw Noi the next day, and she remembered me. Thank you Noi. Thanks for helping us see and learn about your country.
A long but great day well organised and supported by the local tour operator. The guide went into detailed descriptions of sites and gave us plenty of time to do our thing at each site. The provided lunch was good. The ride on the train over an original piece of bridge construction was both interesting and thought provoking. A good trip, well run and good value. The only thing that marred it for me was I got dropped off at the wrong hotel and had to find my own way back to my hotel but that was easy enough.
Very highly recommended! If you love history, nature, and trains, this is a must-do.
The first 2 stops were the Kanchanaburi POW cemetery and the related JEATH museum, which is very small, but definitely interesting to see. After this, a boat ride up to the river Kwae bridge, where you have ample time to explore the bridge and walk around the premises. Then off on the train on the death railway, where you view the absolutely stunning landscape of Kanchanaburi, which seems to me like one of the most idyllic areas in Thailand. The tour concludes with a lively meal at a local restaurant, surrounded in greenery. Our guide Mrs. Pearl was very efficient, knowledgeable, and good company.
Thoroughly enjoyed this memorable trip.
Well worth visiting this important historical military site of world war 11
The trip great guide was informative both the boat trip and train was enjoyable lunch was fabulous

This tour is worth every penny. The lunch was outstanding.
This tour was a full day and somewhat tiring but well worth spending the day. It was a good opportunity to get into the 'jungle' area outside of Bangkok, absorb the history of cruel treatment of those forced to build the railroad in terrible conditions. HIstory came alive for the day.
I got picked up from my hotel in Bangkok around 6.30 am, and was taken to the war cemetry, museum, boat ride, train trip, big lunch and return trip to hotel around 5.30 pm. My tour guide Pui from East Thailand Tours was very nice, extremely knowledgable and everything about the tour was good. I highly recommend this tour, definitely value for money.
You get to see and do a lot in a short amount of time. Recommended if you are remotely interested in this era in history.
Excelent trip. A little to long. Takes basially entire day. Its starts at the POV cementery and it was kind strange to find your own last names 2 times in a book listing people who died here. The bridge portion was interesting because to get close to the bridge we were on local long tail boat. The only disapointment that instead of old type steam engine - train was modern diesel.
Well organized, pick up in time. great tour, we really enjoyed this trip.
Long travel times but well worth the trip! Great information and histroy provided by tour guide, we did pay 300 bhart each to go into a better carriage on the train but it was well worth it as we got a private seat, food and drinks.
A very seamless, heart-rending and overwhelming experience. As a grand daughter of a WWII veteran and POW, this tour meant so much to me.
I was picked up promptly at the hotel and the trip to Kanchanaburi was very informative and comfortable. After the visit to the cemetery, we went on a short boat ride under the Death Bridge. Upon disembarking, our tour guide gave us time to explore and take photos while he purchased our train tickets.
The train ride was very refreshing, however, you could feel how overwhelmed everyone was, the moment we traversed the Hellfire Pass.
This is definitely a trip that should be in a Bangkok traveller's itinerary.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip, it was well organised and the tour guide was informative. Good value for money.
Excellent trip and Souvenirs ! I definitely recommend it
The 2 hours train trip is really worth it, and so was the fantastic Lunch we had on that day
We spend the day with our 2 kids 118 who also appreciate the entire day
Only one bad souvenir of the way to go back to bangkok who took 4 hours , but I guess there is not much that can be done about that..
