It was a great tour. Got to experience the local culture. The Umbrella Market, that was an incredible highlight to see the locals move out of the way for the train only to go right back to work as soon as it passed. That's just one of the highlights. We spent all day using every possible form of transportation trains, boats, tuk-tuks, etc. to get to our different points of interest. We explored vegetable and fish markets, street food carts. Buddhist temples, and flower markets. Incredible value for your money. It's a long day. Bring comfy shoes and an open mind.

Our tour guide Phet was just wonderful. She went out of her way to help us taste the local food and experience the culture. She made the trip worthwhile. Thank you Phet!

This was probably the best day trip I have been on in years, and the value for money incredible. We did not spend any money all day, all was provided. We were a little anxious when we arrived at the New Road Guest House, for our tour. It is a backpackers venue and we felt uncomfortable, however once our tour guide arrived, and out tour started, she put us at ease, and we were confident it was going to be a good day. I wont describe the itinerary as that is explained. It was a very full day, starting around 08:00 and finishing at 18:00, utilising various forms of public transport. The tour was provided by Go Beyond. Truly excellent.

This was a grand trip. Our guide Tae was friendly and helpful. There were several times we had difficulty understanding her, but for the most part all was well. The stop in Mahachai was most interesting as we were able to see the vendors along the tracks move thing our of the way of the train. We also went to Mae Klong to see the market along the tracks there unfortunately, there are no trains currently running through that market as they are redoing the station. However, we walked along the tracks to see the stalls and the tables with wheels. Great day out!

We were not told of the extensive walking involved and it was hard on me. Two train rides were not comfortable, but it was a local train. Visit to floating market was a joke--only two boats. seafood lunch was good, as was the guide.

Lots of walking. Learn a lot about Thai food and markets. Nice scenery on train. Restaurant big let down. Not large variety to choose from and would expect more seafood dishes as this is the fish market.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

Guide was very knowledgable and very helpful. However, aviator should update its promo -- only one train. Very disappointed in the final phrase of your. Would not recommend for mature adults.
