River Kwai Remembered

An excellent day, a very long day! We enjoyed the trip and our guide Pan was very good. We upgraded to reserved and better seats on the train, it didn’t cost much, but we felt this should have been automatic as I’m sure most would want to do this. Be prepared for a lot of steps at Hellfire Pass (I believe you go via a golf cart). A very moving experience.

Really enjoyed our day with Joe and our driver ‘Bet’. Timing was perfect, allowing to ‘feel’ the history of each site. Lunch was excellent and the train trip gave an interesting perspective on the landscape. All up a long but great day.

We all enjoyed the trip. Tour guide "Joe" did a great job and answered all our questions with enough time at each stop. The only part of the trip that we did not do was the long boat ride. When questioned about that stop "Joe" was puzzled. Did not seem that he knew what I was talking about.

This is a history lesson every Aussie needs to do. Our your tour guide Tao had so much to tell us and he was more than willing to accommodate any question from us. Vehicle was comfortable and plenty of water provided.

A journey through history.

Private Tour to Bridge over River Kwai and Hellfire Pass incl trainride
The tour was amazing, so much history to be absorbed and reflected upon. It is a very long day but the transport was excellent. Our guide was a wealth of information, but unfortunately we could barely understand him, his English was not clear at all, in saying that he was a lovely man and very helpful in any way necessary. His compassion regarding the history was very evident. We had a great day, with excellent food for lunch and came away feeling very humbled.

Very emotional day

Private Tour to Bridge over River Kwai and Hellfire Pass incl trainride
We had a personal reason for completing this trip as We have a relative buried at Kanchanburi. It is quite a long trip with the traffic getting out and then back into Bangkok but worth doing. The bridge is interesting to see but Hellfire pass was very emotional and sobering when you saw what the POWs had deal with. The cemetery is beautifully tended and visiting uncle Eddie's grave was something we always wanted to do. It is a credit to the CWGC! Our guude, Joe, looked after us with efficiency; thank you.The train ride was fun and took you out to sections of the original line. Yummy Thai lunch included in very clean restaurant.

great private tour

Private Tour to Bridge over River Kwai and Hellfire Pass incl trainride
the tour really was private, just the 2 of us. our guide Moo was really good, knew her stuff, and spoke really good english. be prepared though, if Moo is your guide, it is a bit of a Foody tour as well so no need for a big breakfast. a long day, so dont plan anything early evening. Our driver Doo was top quality, when they found out we had an * 30 dinner reservation, he did a great job getting us back from the hellfire pass in time, the pass itself is a long old trek so dont underestimate it, but its also a long journey back to bangkok. i would have no hesitation recommending this tour to any history buffs out there, a visit to the war graves is very moving, and i would also recommend the Moo and Doo double act :)
