Great experience with flexibility

Amazing trip. Meet in hotel lobby that you pick. Our guide and driver were both excellent Ms A and kip. We noticed our tour didn't include Hellfire Pass which for us was very important to visit, with a quick call from our guide to her office Hellfire was added on, we dropped a boat trip to save time. First stop 2 hour drive, Hellfire Pass, onto a nice restaurant for lunch, then to Death Railway, no train ride as we had messed up timeliness. On to war memorial ,Cemetery and Death Railway museum then Bridge on the River Kwae. Expect a 3 + hour drive back Bangkok rush hour traffic is fun.
Overall extremely happy with our private tour guide and driver.and their flexibility to work with us to acheive our perfect day out. Thank you.
Fantastic day

Loved everything about this tour. The death railway museum was incredible with life like depictions, memorabilia, photos and more. I found it very moving at times realising just what our soldiers went through. We moved on to a mock up of a prisoner of war camp and then boarded a long tail boat for a trip up the river Kwai to the bridge. Before walking the bridge we had a beautiful lunch at a riverside restaurant and then had some time to walk across the bridge and back. We then joined our driver and guide for the trip back to Bangkok. Both the guide and driver were excellent and the car was modern comfortable and well maintained. Really strongly recommend this tour.
