Airey is amazing
, Feb 2020
We had an amazing tour thanks to Airey. Less than 10 minutes from the hotel, we got caught in a 2-hour traffic jam. Somehow, Airey (and our safe driver) were still able to get us to all the sites. Airey is a kind, knowledgeable person who made our day very special -- exploring the Erawan falls, the elephant reserve and so much more. THANK YOU.
Travel to Kanchanaburi on a packed full day tour that will impress you from dawn till dusk. Visit the exquisite Erawan Waterfall and swim inside the emerald green ponds. Get a chance to walk on the notorious Death Railway and explore the cave of Buddha. A day at Kanchanaburi is not complete without visiting the rescued Elephants, observe and learn about the elephants. Prepare for a great day with your private professional guide, air-conditioned vehicle, and lunch included.
Tumbling in seven stunning stages through the forests of Erawan National Park around 120 miles (193 kilometers) from Bangkok, the Erawan Waterfall is one of Thailand’s most beautiful falls and an Instagram favorite. It’s not possible to get there and back in a day on public transport, but this small-group tour makes a great alternative, with a guide, lunch, and round-trip transfers from central Bangkok hotels.
This tour was well organized and used newer, air conditioned vehicles. The guides were knowledgeable and good representatives of their homeland cultures. Given that English is their second language there were inevitably some moments when communication was limited, but overall understanding was sufficient.
We felt rushed at the Death Railway Museum, as there is much to view and understand there.
Jungle Rafts Hotel is a terrific experience and we highly recommend it, with the caveat that there is no electricity. This means no lights (The staff prepares kerosene lights for each cabin and the room key comes with a small flashlight.), no air conditioning, no WiFi and no place to charge devices. The upside is a beautiful location, tasty and plentiful food and a once in a lifetime chance to swim in the River Kwai.
The included visit to Hellfire Pass Interpretive Center was a highlight for us, a beautiful but emotional review of a terrible wartime event.
As others have noted, it is good to take plenty of small Thai Baht bills for tips and small purchases.
We chose to travel light, having stored our larger suitcases at our Bangkok hotel, and we were glad we did, as it made transferring between vehicles and the small boats much easier.
Finally, we would recommend planning your visit during cooler months, as the heat and humidity can be severe in the hot seasons.
Was a fantastic 2day trip. Would highly recommend, accom as per itinerary, food great and local guide fantastic. Guide on bus had very poor English and was difficult to understand when giving history on bus. Need small notes in cash as only cash once at rafts and they seemed to struggle with big notes for change.
Explore Kanchanaburi’s harrowing past on 2-day, joint or private guided tour to Hellfire Pass and the Death Railway. Visit the region’s most important World War II sites: walk among the War Cemetery’s allied graves, then learn their stories at the Thailand-Burma Railway Center and the famous bridge across the River Kwai. Board a riverboat for Hellfire Pass, where POWs died in miserable conditions, then return to Thailand’s vivid, thriving present with an evening traditional dance presentation and a visit to a rural Mon tribal village.
This was a great afternoon. The ride was fun and interesting. Going so close to peoples back or front yard was an eye opener. The guide, Jannie , was excellent in guiding us through the very narrow back lane ways and traffic. The River crossing was fun. The locals you meet on the ride are friendly and open especially the kids who are only too happy to give a " Hi Five " and laugh if you fall or stumble off your bike.The meal provided was great and most enjoyable and provided a chance to chat to the guide on a person to person basis. The only down fall was ME. With the humidity and previous health problems I was not able to complete the full round and as there were only my wife and I on this tour the guide was able to get us back to the start point with not too much of a problem. Ha'ts off to her . If you are thinking of doing this tour PLEASE make sure you can make it. If you are young or fit elder then go for it. You will enjoy it,. SUGGESTION for tour operator, please consider getting some E bikes. This will open up the tour to more people who would be happy to pay extra for the experience also hotel transfers. The more people you can get to see the non commercialised side of Bangkok the better it is for tourists and more importantly the local people. I would highly recommend this tour.

Overall the tour was excellent. The pick up driver was rude and ignorant not telling us anything we were cramped into small minivan for quite a long journey. When we got to bridge we were rushed to see bridge no time to appreciate it. Then changed vans with different driver and a guide so got better waterfalls were very nice a bit less time there and a bit extra at bridge would have been better. The train was really good. On way back guide got off van without saying a word. Got back to Bangkok changed vans, had same ignorant driver we had first thing in morning to take us back to hotel who sat watching TV on a tablet while driving back through busy traffic in Bangkok. The things we saw was excellent. The transport and staff and organisation was bad.
Take a break from Bangkok’s hustle on this small-group door-to-door adventure, which simply can’t be done in a day on public transport. Spend the morning swimming and taking pictures at the 7-tiered Erawan Waterfall, then enjoy a picnic in the national park. Finish with a ride on the Burma Railway (Death Railway), built by Allied prisoners during World War II, and a look at the Bridge on the River Kwai.
This tour was amazing. It is easily one of my top favorite tour here in BKK. We were on a Private tour, picked up on our hotel and brought to this railway market with vendors moving their goods and umbrellas aways from track as train approaches, it was a fun sight and experience from inside and outside the train when it was all happening. You can do shopping in the market as well with cheap and local prices. The second part was this coconut farm which is the least fun stop of the tour, nothing much to say as this is like a tour filler IMO. And lastly, you will be taken to this Damnoen floating market with boat ride while checking the vendors.. tip: DON’T buy souvenirs there, too overpriced. Haggling are expected though. And lastly, our tour guide Ms. Jim aka as our photographer and Ms. Bee, the most energetic and fun driver ever are both awesome and the reason why this trip was super fun. Overall, it’s so worth it for the experience. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed our tour with Mod. She was very knowledgeable and we learned so much about the places we visited and about Thailand in general. The Railway Market is amazing and it is very nice to see the action form both inside the train and from the market. The market is very authentic and Mod showed us many produce we didn't know about. The floating market is more touristic, but a must see. It's amazing to see the floating market tradition still alive. As part of the tour, you get to see a salt farm and a coconut farm, both very interesting.
I highly recommend this tour!
There were 8 in our party, including 4 teens, on a short stopover. Everyone agreed that it was an excellent tour. Great way to see Bangkok area highlights during a brief stay and get out of the busy city. Vicky is an excellent tour guide and was able to answer all of our questions and provide a lot of detail about the Thai culture. She is friendly professional. Thank you! Van was on time to pick us up at our hotel and driver was courteous.
