This tour was very interesting. Growing up in America we never realized that Thailan played a role in World War II and that there was a bridge that was built during this time frame. While it was very sad, it was nice to see and learn about this history that affected and killed so many people. The train ride was beautiful.
Very knowledgeable. Great tour! Would definitely recommend.
Excellent private trip, managed to see and do all the things we wanted to do on this trip.
Had a great day from the start to finish. 'Tum', our host, and driver were fantastic from explaining the day, arranging our activities to stopping and buying ice cream on the way back to Bangkok! The day was exactly as detailed on the schedule and exactly what we needed on our short stay in Thailand. Will definitely use this service again.
This was a brilliant trip. Collected from our hotel by private minibus our party of 4 enjoyed the undivided attention of our tour guide Peter. It was very moving to see the cemetery where so many of those who died working on the death railway are laid to rest. Then on to the museum, the long tail boat ride to the bridge and then the journey on the train....what an experience. We really endorse the views expressed by others that it is well worthwhile paying the little extra to guarantee seats on the train. All in all this was a great trip and one which well all remember. Highly recommended
money well spent
Very well organised and we did everything as booked. Guide was very good and gave us lots of information about Bangkok and where we were visiting.
Worth every penny spent. Nui, our guide was excellent and took care of us throughout. It's so much better doing a private trip, especially with Bangkok's awful traffic. The cemetary was beautifully maintained, and quite though provoking. A long-tail boat ride all to ourselves took us to the famous Bridge over the River Kwai, where we walked across and took photos before a 90 minute train trip down the famous railway. Fed and watered on the train, we got off to a lovely lunch by the station before our journey back to chaotic Bangkok. A brilliant day out.
Great trip, we learnt a lot about the building of the railway and the suffering of the prisoners of war and local labourers.
We were picked up at 6.30 am from our small hotel by a very knowledgeable guide and a very competent driver.
The whole day was well timed, no waiting about but plenty of time to see everything.
The fast boat ride was great fun.
The train ride was 90 minutes and included refreshments.
The buffet lunch was good, plenty of choice.
We were back at our hotel door by 4.30 pm., we would certainly recommend the private tour.

I had a very nice time on my trip. My guide Prandea was full of interesting information while giving me free reign to explore on my own. The car was clean and comfortable making the long-ish drive quite pleasant. The lunch was tasty and filling and presented in a lovely outdoor pavilion. The train ride was a highlight and I particularly appreciated that this tour came with a first class ticket on the train ride. The car was comfortable and much less crowded and chaotic than second class.
