A Recent Review of this tour

Swai was excellent, couldn't do enough for us. Everything went so smoothly from the pick-up at the hotel in Bangkok at 6am to our return at 8pm. We visited the DonRak cemetery first then on to the bridge and museum. Later on the train for anhour then had lunch outdoor, really great. Later went on to the Hellfire Pass and museum before returning to Kamchanaburi for a boat ride on the Kwai. A full and tiring day but it was the highlight of the trip. The whole day was exceptional. Thankyou Swai.
