Kanchanaburi and Death Railway Private Tour from Bangkok
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8 hours
The tour itself was really good and my husband and I really enjoyed the day. Our tour guide was excellent and really knew his stuff. Our driver although not very talkative, but boy did he know how to navigate the very busy Bangkok traffic; he really did deserve a medal and a very large tip! My only gripe is that the van (although it did have air con) was not very comfortable and we had too many people crammed on board. The journey was long so comfort was a bit of an issue. We were very happy to get off the van at the end of the day. with hindsight I would have preferred it if I had booked the private tour, but you get what
A great tour with lots to see and a very knowledgable tour leader (I think her name was Nine). However, please understand that the 'optional extras' are not optional at all and so budget to spend the extra 500baht on both the speed boat and train ticket upgrade, as you will be told you 'must must must' which is near impossible to get out of. Not really an issue as it did enhance the day, but something to consider when booking.
A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork! We started off in quite a big group, but ended up splinting to separate hotels, and so our tour continued with just two people, which was excellent! The Kwai Jungle Rafts were an incredible experience and I’d recommend to anyone. It was really interesting to hear the history or the hotel and everyone there was so friendly. Food was all delicious too.
The van team were excellent, kept us informed on where we were going, what we would see and timings to expect. Knew all the info at the various sites we visited and treated us as friends. Although the Kwai Bridge is very commercial, there was no pestering from sellers. Would heavily recommend but watch it is a long journey there and back from Bangkok
Excellent day out. Great company in the van. As expected, getting into and out of the long boat was a challenge! Tour guide very helpful. Lunch nothing special but good service. Train and sights met or exceeded expectations.
