A Recent Review of this tour

This is the second tour we took with Kay. Again there is a lot of history and this is a very long day. We enjoyed the day and loved that we were able to get the train ride fitted in. Even though it has some dark history, it is a very beautiful area and well worth seeing. When we return to Thailand we plan on staying on the "floating hotels" for a night or two. I would certainly book with Mr. Kay
