Great tour. Pay the extra for the tourist special train at kanchanaburi, the free packed lunch and certificate were a nice touch. Tour East Thailand couldn't do enough for us. Well worth the money !!!
If you'd like a comprehensive tour to the River Kwai at a reasonable price - this is the one for you. We had a knowledgeable guide on this tour and and ample time at the various stops. I never felt rushed or bored. Personally, I learnt quite something about the River Kwai and the situation of the POW's even if the location looks different nowadays. The subject was treated with respect throughout the tour - which I unfortunately cannot say about all the tourists coming to this site taking selfies in a place that caused so many deaths.
The trip includes a ride on the train which was about 90 minutes long. If you pay an additional 200 Baht you get seats assigned to you plus snacks and drinks. At the train stop we had a nice and relaxed lunch before heading back to Bangkok where we arrived in good time unfortunately this is something one cannot count on because of the traffic situation in and around Bangkok. Also, the group size was good 5 people on this trip plus guide and driver.
Excellent tour with tour guide Peter. We went on Remembrance Day so made it all the more special. Met some lovely people on tour too.
Well worth booking this tour.
This was a very worthwhile trip. The first stop was the war cemetery that was beautifully looked after. Boat trip to the bridge was good but if you are a large person can be uncomfortable as space is tight. Plenty of time at the bridge to take photo's. There was a war museum that would have been good if we could have looked round that. Charging 300BHT to sit on a tourist carriage was an unexpected add on that should have been included as the other carriages were the same and empty.
Fantastic tour, visiting a war cemetery, the JEATH museum, then taking a boat to the famous bridge. There is some time to walk over the bridge before taking the train along the death railway for an hour and a half. Finished with a Thai lunch before driving back to Bangkok. Our guide Krit was fantastic, he was very knowledgeable and made sure the tour ran smoothly and on time so we could catch the train and be back in Bangkok before the traffic jams started.
Interesting and really informative guide, nice landscape and great food!
Would highly recommend
Was a long day but was really worth it
Our guide Yelly was both friendly and very knowledgable
Historically a very interesting tour. Tour was very well organized. Tour bus was exact on scheduled time. Tour guide provided lots of information in good English.
Excellent - highly recommend the trip. Just beware that the train sometimes breaks
excellent tour a long day but well worth it,and a lovely lunch after the train ride,air conditioned bus and informative tour guide.Only hassle was the traffic back to Bangkok,as we did the tour on the Friday we hit the rush hour traffic and took us nearly three hours to go Two kilometres,but thats not the tours fault and i would reccommend this tour
