This tour is a MUST! The drive was long, about 190min to and back to Bangkok was about 2hrs, but we got to see the countryside and different provinces of Thailand. First stop was a cemetery, then the Jeath War Museum. From there a short 15 min long tail boat ride to the River Kwai center. if you're prone to getting seasick, don't worry. it's really not bad at all. My girlfriend gets seasick and she was ok. Our guide told the boat operator to go slow and he was cool about it. Lots of tourists there taking selfies at the bridge site and I've never seen SO many selfies sticks! From there we had a 45-1hr train ride to the Bridge Section called the Death section. The side of a cliff was cut by war prisoners, many of whom die during construction. Very sobering. Then from our train stop, was lunch, which was fantastic! Would do this trip again!
The trip delivered what it said: a great combination of car trip to the Bridge, boat ride and railway experience. One comment is that, for an older less mobile person, getting down to the seat on the river boat is extremely difficult because the seat is almost at floor level. The Guide and Driver were friendly and professional providing sufficient information but not too much. The included lunch was more than adequate.
Excellent! Great day with excellent knowledgeable guide Kassem.
Everything was well organized and my guide Ram was fantastic.
The Kwai bridge,Burma railway and POW war graves have always been in the top 10 of my bucket list.
My guide was not only knowledgeable,but respectful of the history of this area. He made sure I was able to spend the right amount of time at all the locations, hassled and well informed. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history of this area.
Superb tour! Our guide and driver were consummate professionals.
We really enjoyed our tour of the River Kwai. It's worth the extra money to get the private tour.

This was an extremely moving experience. Having not studied the 20th Century history at school I found this tour very informative. It was a tour packed with information and great experiences that were complimented by an outstanding guide. A trip not to be missed and one that reminds us of the inhumanity of man towards others some times.
Picked up on time. Interesting stop at the war cemetery which is immaculately looked after - very sobering. Went on to the small museum which is a mock up of the POW camp filled with drawings from the inmates - again very sobering and very moving. The boat trip up to the bridge is fun and doesn't last too long. Time to walk along the bridge, quick bit of shopping then onto the train. Little snack provided, great scenery and a view of the incredible work done by the Allied prisoners to make the railway under horrendous conditions. Lovely lunch stop then a very long 3hr journey back to Bangkok.
