It ended up being a private tour for two, so we customize it just a bit. The guide was responsive to all sorts of questions about Thailand as we drove through the sites and countryside.
I was a little unsure if I wanted to do this trip because of the long drive and things I've heard about this floating market, but we ended up loving it! Our tour guide Cheri was very informative the whole way, describing Thai culture and answering questions for us. The floating market was totally fun! We ended up buying some artwork from a local painter that we'll cherish forever. Yes, some things were more expensive but the difference between 300tb and 400tb is what...3USD so at the end of the day, we came home with memories we'll cherish for a lifetime and hopefully contributed a little extra towards making the locals a little happier. While the Bridge of the River Kwai was a bit of a drive, the scenery and stories we were told made it totally worth it. I'd do it again if we go back.
The tour was fabulous.The guide was very knowledgeable. The ride in the long tailed boat to the floating market was fun.The war graves at Kanchanaburi were very moving and a must see place, then the bridge on the river Kwai was awesome to see and walk over
awesome and informative
We had a great time on this tour, pearl our guide was informative and friendly. The boat trip was the highlight for us, free time for shopping and looking around was just right. Highly recommended.
Loved the tour, wonderful day.
Guide Paul from the Tour and the minibus driver were great. It was a long day -- 13 hours from pickup to dropoff. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The floating market was better than I expected, since I wasn't interested in buying anything. The narrow canals were fun, both in the free longtail boat and the 150 Baht canoe. We stopped in a few other places. The River Kwai was not quite what I expected, since it is rather built-up and not the jungle that I thought.
Very good trip. Everything happened to time and as advertised.
Very enjoyable, excellent value for money.
It was great. Our tour guide was the this adorable woman, who was very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. The market is something unique and we enjoyed our time there. Don't miss on the mango with sticky rice. We then visited the historic kanchanaburi cemetery and the bridge on River Kwai. It was a very solemn moment. Plenty of time to relax on the ride back to Bangkok. Great day!
