Very friendly and informative guide as well as good and safe driver. It was a great experience and absolutely ideal for a day trip from Bangkok. These sights (Mae Klong train market, floating market in Damnoen Saduak incl. private canoe trip, bridge over the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi incl. train ride and lunch as well as a walk on the tracks along the river etc.) can be comfortably managed with this tour in one day. Because you are at the Mae Klong Railway Market early in the morning, you can visit the market almost without tourists and take excellent photos of the train. I really recommend every Bangkok tourist to do this tour with hotel pickup. It was just great and also very funny!

A fabulous tour with Harry, our lovely knowledgeable guide and professional photographer! We were well looked after in a comfortable and clean, air conditioned SUV with our very safe driver Mr Chet who also provided plenty of cold water and flannels throughout the day. Set at a good pace, the day was most enjoyable and interesting. Harry’s English was understandable and nothing was too much trouble. He showed us best places to stand and sit to get the best out of the tour. We would definitely recommend this trip.

For those booking this trip avoid Sunday as this is a busy day for both tourists and for the roads with weekenders travelling back to Bangkok from Hoa Hin. The other item to avoid is the long car journey back to Bangkok. Better to take the train and public transport back to Bangkok. We joined the train at Thamkra Sae and were picked up by car 4 stops later for the ride back to Bangkok that was just short of 3 hours! The guide Mr Pong and driver Mr Chim did their best to keep us amused!
