We loved this tour and so glad we choose the private tour as our guide Ms Julia was great. She was full of useful information. She took us to see the floating markets which was a bonus. The bridge and cemetery was spin chilling to think what these people went through. Definitely pay the extra 150 THB to do the boat which takes you up past all the market stalls. Very unique experience.
Long day, but fascinating glimpse of history! Get a private tour, avoid the crowds

We really loved this tour and so glad we choose the private tour as our guide, Ms Julie was great. Full of useful information throughout the day. She took us to see the railway markets which was a bonus as we wanted to see this and she made a detour for us. The River Kwai bridge and cemetery was spine chilling to think what these people went through. The market was also a great experience and we went over to the food section as a bonus. Very unique experience.
Worth a visit

Good tour, well communicated. The tour guide & driver were on time and took us to see the sites. Many things to see as you motor through the waters and good things to eat! My only offering would be for the van to stock water. It states that they don't, but they were the only tour we had that didn't offer water and the Thai sun was pretty brutal and it would have made the tour better.
