This was a really great activity! We learned a lot and had a great time on the river Kwai. We learned a lot and were able to have some downtime on the jungle rafts while also learning about the Mon tribe. This is a great tour for people wanting to learn more about some of the history of the area.

We did this tour in Nov and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in WWII history. We were picked up from our hotel at the arranged time and taken to a central point for our bus of the day. After a bit of a drive were taken to the Bridge over the River Kwai by long boat and then proceeded to the Death Railway Museum and one of the many cemeteries. Sam, our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history and provided an excellent commentary. We were then taken to another long boat where we were taken to our overnight accommodation. The accommodation was very comfortable and the food provided of good quality, however it must be pointed out that there is no power at this site, so it will be hot and humid. A quick swim in the river helped, but it was still very hot and humid. Bligh was our guide and he attended to all our needs as there was only 4 people in our group. His passion for the WWII history was evident and his knowledge of the history would be much better than most Australians of a similar age. The next day we were taken to the Hellfire Pass and Museum before being delivered back to our bus for the return journey to Bangkok via the Death Railway. The whole experience was well worth the discomfort of the heat and I would recommend an overnight stay as it would have otherwise been a very long day. The day tour also does not visit Hellfire Pass..
The only problem we had was that our return bus broke down, but the tour guide managed to organise suitable alternative transport in record time and even though our bus was not available, the tour went on regardless without a hitch and without delay. Well done.
