The floating markets were awesome. Our tour guide Nikko was beyond great. Very knowledgeable, informative and kind. He took his time to explain the history of the land and to show us certain key things.
I wish we had more time at the floating markets and that it wsnt so crowded, but besides that, it was great. I would definitely recommend it along with Nikko as the tour guide!
great day, great guide Miss Yelli, confy bus with good air con, long day but still comfortable
Wonderful tour. So interesting to see the floating market. The long boat boat ride was really fun through the canals to the market. Great guide. Really enjoyed the time at River Kwai I like history Plenty of time to enjoy.
This was a wonderful day, with lots of shopping, history and getting to see some of Thailand outside of Bangkok. Definitely pay the extra 150 baht for the smaller canoe tour- that's about 4USD and absolutely worth it!
From pick-up to drop off we had a great day. Our knowledgeable and articulate tour guide Miss Luck was able to inform us of history and local culture as well as answering our questions. Visiting a country and staying in your hotel is not tourism. We were delighted to get out and see the countryside as well as two significant destinations. The bustling floating markets are quite unique and representative of the Thai culture and economy being based on rivers and canal systems whilst the Bridge on the River Kwai and the Khochanburi cemetery and museum were a sobering reminder of the war and its cost. A great tour, highly recommended.
Very interesting and informative trip. Family of 42 teenagers enjoyed it thoroughly . Floating markets and longboat ride were very enjoyable and our guide Peter made the whole experience great. The morning is broken up by coffe stop en route to the floating market and the Jeath museum before a buffet lunch which was very good. Visit to the graveyard and river Kwai in the afternoon before the long 3hours plus trip back to Bangkok but well worth it.
Amazing trip. Money well spent. The guide was fantastic and the whole day was an experience that everyone should have. Would recommend the trip and would do it again . Thank you.
Although we did not book a private tour there was only our party of four on board the mini bus plus a young 28 year old German girl who was really lovely. The tour guide was very informative and friendly, at the end of the day we all felt like old friends. The trip was very interesting and we were very lucky with the weather. We all enjoyed the day immensely and have many fond memories of the trip.

Excellent. Tour guides were wonderfully knowledgeable. Seamless. Wold recommend to all.
Absolutely fantastic day, the floating makes are a must and the River Kwai, well, very emotional and thought provoking. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history aspect. Was very hot so take plenty of water!!
Although there was a hiccup with our booking, where we weren't advised the night before of our pick-up time from our hotel and had to try and locate someone who could advise us late on the Saturday night what time we were being collected the following morning, we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Pick up from our hotel was 6.10am and we didn't arrive back until after 7pm in the evening. Our guide was very knowledgable and spoke relatively good English. The floating markets were very interesting to see, although a number of guests were delayed by a traffic jam on the canals when in the candle boats which meant they missed out on making purchases and were late back to the tour bus. The buffet lunch provided at a river side restaurant was very nice. The War Cemetery and Bridge on River Kwai were highlights of the day. Even though our bus had a mishap with a blown tyre during the day this was repaired quickly en-route and we would definitely recommend this trip.

Long day was very well orgainsed and time was well planned. Day was full of positive surprises and we learned a lot, for example, that the film and the reality of the Bridge on River Kwai were not the same! The Floating Market was great too!
The floating market experience is so unique, it is a must when visiting Tailand. Also the Bridge on the River Kwai was very touching for knowing the history behind that.
This was an outstanding tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the visit to the coconut factory and the trip on the long tailed boat to the Floating Market. The market is very colourful and busy. It did sadden me to see local people with three little slow lorises, creatures that should be in the wild. I found the Bridge on River Kwai Tour poignant but interesting.
You really must go to these markets. The hustle and bustle is well worth the amazing sights.
We did a full day tour Floating Markets and Bridge over River Kwai approx 11-12hrs
We were also running ahead of time so the tour guide and driver also took us for a quick tour of the Train markets as well.
So much to see and do on this tour. Well worth the time and cost involved. Highly recommended
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
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.
