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.
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.
We really enjoyed our tour of the River Kwai. It's worth the extra money to get the private tour.
One of the best tours done from Bangkok
Thoroughly recommend the private tour
No lining up,everything done for us
All tours will now be a 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.
Loved it ! From pickup to drop off this tour is fantastic great day out
excellent tour our guide was very knowledgeable, really nice lunch.
We all really enjoyed the tour. The guide we had was lovely and very informative.
We were a party of 5 from aged 14 to adults.
I would definitely recommend this to everybody.
This tour was a real surprise for us all, we consisted of 2 Adults and 2 Children but although this was somewhat of pilgrimage for us Australians we really enjoyed the day out. I was surprised to find the tour included a Long Tail boat ride to the bridge and a 90mins train ride on the railway to our lunch spot. Lunch was a buffet as we had a number of groups on that day but all the food was local Thai food and great. There wasn't anything the kids didn't like. Wat was our guide and he was very knowledgeable on all parts of the tour making sure we didn't miss anything and warning us as we approached for the camera shots. The tour was quite long and does go for a whole day. We were picked up at the hotel at 6:30am and did not return until after 4pm. The drive out was at least 90mins and the return trip after lunch was at least 120mins but our kids are good travellers. There was also an option of a Elephant ride price not included in tour for those wanting more after lunch which would make the return time 6pm or later.
My friends and I loved this day out. Our guide and driver took care of us well and everything went like clock work. The highlights were the boat trip up the river to the bridge and the train ride along the river and over the wooden viaduct....just spectacular. Lunch was very good too. Highly recommend it, great value for money.
An unbelievable experience. Don't miss the opportunity to do this trip
Lovely Guide very, very moving experience. Would have liked more time at Cemertary and Museum, but to be fair it all depemded on the arrival of the train. Tour went well and was so comfortable, Very pleasent driver and Guide. Would recommend highly.
This tour with our Fabulous guide, Jaimmy, was a very sad walk through History. The way in which the Japanese treated the P.O.W.s was appalling. We took a speed boat up the river to arrive at the Bridge which was thrilling….. The train ride on the Death Rail was beautiful as you passed some amazing scenery and saddening when you could envisage just what those poor souls had to deal with to build this Railway.
Lunch was included in our tour and was delicious.
we had a car with driver and guide for the two of us,both spoke very good english and had loads of facts about
places we went too,the war graves well it made me think about somethings and life thats i will say on that,boat and train ride very good,food was very good,all in all a very nice trip only - long drive back
