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.
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.
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!
Well prepared, nice places and additional attractions. Very good value for money. I recommend it.
Fun. Relaxing. Exciting. Mystical.
Excellent Tour and Tour Guide/Staff. So informative, friendly, and passionate. Worth Every Penny!!
A must do when visiting Bangkok. Great way to get to see sights outside of the Big Bity.
The tour guide has a very good knowledge on the destination. We were given plenty time to spend on each destination. This tour is highly recommended.
Very well organised, did not expect a very nice air-conditioned saloon with driver and tour guide! Perhaps we were just lucky I don't know?! Well worth the trip and great fun. Yes it is a long day, but very good value for money and the markets were more enjoyable than I was expecting!
The journey was long but worth it. The floating market was very touristy but also very different. The grave site of those killed building the railway is beautifully kept by the Thai people. The bridge site was interesting but was not actually at the point where the original bridge was built but it gave you an idea of the location. The guide was excellent.
This was an outstanding experience: excellent guide an driver! The guide must be praised for a perfectly organised excursion, for his kindness and his culture as well as his fluency in English and the very informative comments he made throughout the tour. I warmly recommend this tour especially with this guide on 19th October 2015.
We went on the River Kwai Trip in July.
The trip was fantastic and very enjoyable.
The Guide was absolutely superbextremely knowledgeablefriendly and helpful.
I will certainly recommend this trip to friends.
We really enjoyed the trips, both places were amazing. Our only negative comments would be that the bus had poor air conditioning and the windows were very dirty. When you are on a tight schedule you sometimes need to take photos out of the window and this was impossible.
From kick up to drop it was a great day... alot more included than expected.
Very good tour, but perhaps prefer a bit more time at River Kwai, and less at the coconut place. To go to hellfire pass would have been good, but maybe I had wrong tour. Lunch delicious
GREAT TOUR, The tour guide went out of her way to pick me up from my hotel that was not on the list, the guide and the driver were very nice and explained the history very well. I really enjoyed myself
