Full description

Enjoy your full-day private tour from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi with your personal tour guide. Start with pickup from your hotel in Bangkok in the early morning. Visit the top destinations in Kanchanaburi by a private air-conditioned car. Begin your trip by visiting Bridge Over the River Kwai, the famous attraction of Kanchanaburi which was made famous by the movie of the same name. Continue to Erawan Waterfall National Park, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand with an altitude of 500 meters above sea level.

Walk from the national park office to the waterfall. Relax at the waterfall or take an optional trek up to the top of the waterfall on the 7th tier (about 1,500 meters). After the waterfall, enjoy an optional lunch at a local restaurant. Visit Krasae Buddha cave and board the train to ride along the former railway for about 30 minutes. Then return to your hotel in Bangkok.

We enjoyed the trip as the places are worth seeing. We had a private tour, just our family and a guide Kim who was really nice and helpful all the time, and a drive who drove safely and always picked up us wherever and whenever needed. There are however some comments I would like to share: the trip has a rich programme but it is not manageable. In contrast to what had been on schedule, we did not have time to play and swim in the waterfall and we did not visit the cave with Buddha - just briefly saw it from the train (which we would have missed if it had not been for our driver who smartly managed to take a different route to get us the station before the train). Also, we would appreciate more time at the bridge over Kwai river which is a special place and we would like to see and hear more but had just a few minutes (also, there is a cute market with souvernires we would love to enjoy a bit). Lunch break was great - our guide Kime took us to a very nice restaurant serving great food.

The tour was amazing! Our driver Porng and guide Scott were both great. Pick up and drop off from the hotel was super convenient. Scott was very knowledgeable and friendly! He told us all about the history of the area. This is a great tour if you want to learn about the history of the Bridge over the river kwai and see some beautiful waterfalls!

We had the best time ever with Mr. Harry and Mr. Ping Pong. We wished we had done this tour sooner Mr. Harry is the BEST tour guide EVER! Your in a comfortable van with your own group or family not a big bus with heaps of other people. Note take Mr. Harry’s recommendations with food, he knows the best of the best choices. When the tour was finished Mr. Harry is still helping me find my way around Bangkok and where ti eat good food at no extra cost. He is amazing.
