This excursion was amazing. Our guide (Siri) was fabulous and explained things very well but also made sure we were comfortable and happy throughout. The waterfalls were amazing and are a must see when In Kanchanaburi. We walked to level 7 but each way Siri made sure we were fine to continue. And it was worth it as the scenes were amazing. We started early in the morning which definitely helped as by 10.30 it was starting to get busy. We really enjoyed seeing the beauty of all the waterfalls and national park. We then headed off for lunch which was nice and authentic and cheap! The train ride was also great. Amazing views and travelling over such a historic bridge was very humbling. Overall a great trip and glad we booked it.

The spectacular landscapes, the attention of our guide and the very good driver, we liked the whole tour a lot although the trip on the train was very long with little interest in the intermediate route between the first 2 stops and the last one, which we did find them very interesting because of their history and surroundings. We would repeat.
