Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Bridge Over the River Kwai, Tha Makham, Kanchanaburi 71000 Thailand
Fascinating, nostalgic and memorable sums up this full day tour to Kanchanaburi, 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of Bangkok. The province itself is an agricultural area with sugar cane, rice paddies and pineapple plantations all forming significant portions of the stunning Thai rural landscape. Whether a war buff or rail enthusiast, everyone has a different reason to see this symbolic bridge.
The famous bridge and the beginning of the 'Death Railway', which lies 1 mile outside the town of Kanchanaburi, is a poignant reminder of the thousands of POW's and forced laborers who lost their lives in the Second World War. The building of the bridge in 1943 was one part of a huge Japanese wartime project to link existing Thai and Burmese railway lines to create a direct route from Bangkok, Thailand to Rangoon, Burma (now Myanmar) in an effort to support the Japanese occupation of Burma. Thousands of POW's and laborers died in the process. During your tour a visit will be made to one of the Allied War Grave cemeteries (often an emotional experience) before visiting the JEATH war museum, which houses pictures and paintings from this period.
An exhilarating long tailed speed boat ride will then take you down river to the famous bridge itself where you have ample time to explore at your own leisure. A ride on a local train is also included before returning to Bangkok city.

Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and efficient. All components of the itinerary were handled well.
I simply could not fault this experience. Our tour guide (Peter) was interesting, entertaining and informative.
From hotel pickup through journey, boat ride, train to Wanpo and lunch was absolutely fabulous. Everyone should know the history of the death railway and the impact it had post WWII.
Many thanks for giving us such a wonderful day guys, much appreciated 👍🏻
A long day but the trip was worth it, the forces cemetery, museum, boat ride along the river to the bridge and train ride across the bridge. Good guide, good driver. All very interesting.
It began with a visit to the cemetery, a very sobering, beautiful,and tragic experience. Then a James Bond type boat ride on the River Kwai, followed by the train approaching and our 90 minute ride that for an extra 200k we sat in first class, got free water, soda,and sweets,and a certificate. While a exciting ride especially if you live trains,you also got to see how difficult the work must have been to curve through rock at times in bbn order to lay the tracks. At the end of the journey, a delicious lunch.
Fantastic tour well worth the money, guide very knowledgable both him and driver were great. Long day but made up for it by driver and guide.
The whole day was great with Jenny. She made sure we saw all the highlights, explained everything clearly, made sure we were comfortable and was a delight. Her English was excellent.
It’s a long drive out and a long drive back but well worth the journey. Tour guide was very experienced and knowledgeable. Very moving day.
Our guide Suki took very good care of us. He was knowledgeable with the history of the Death Railway and the Bridge over the river Kwai. The experience was very good. The long boat ride was very entertaining. The train trip was nice through the countryside. We got to see Thailand from a difference perspective. The lunch at the end was delicious. Our group was small and we all enjoyed the trip, the company and the experience. I highly recommend this trip.
Our wonderful guide explained all about the River Kwai, the history, the war and the politics involved. She took care of us all the way, made sure we were in the right place at the right time. I was even taken care with a delicious alternate meal due to dietary issues at our restaurant. Our comfort was provided for when she gave us masks for the dust on the train. All in all a great experience.
Our tour guide was amazing! We had a wonderful excursion, full of amazing facts, lots of sights, and photo opportunities. Our tour guide shared so many pertinent facts about Thailand with us and offered to take countless photos. She was so kind. Our tour bus driver was very patient and safe and quick with driving. The tour overall was amazing. We learned so much and indulged in moments of history.
This was an excellent tour. It was a long time in mini bus being transported, but it is a long drive from Bangkok (2-3 Hours), and that can't be helped. That is where it is, and it was well worth the journey, and really lovely lunch! Guide was excellent with information etc. I wish we'd have had a bit more time at each place, but because of distance from Bangkok, time was important, to fit a tour like this in, in one day. Well worth it and very pleased I went. Also was great to meet other Brits who were on the tour. And felt like I owed the many soldiers who suffered so much and died there, a visit, despite heat and no sleep/jet lag. They will have suffered so much more!
Despite the long journey from Bangkok (and back) the experience of being at the bridge over the river Kwai was quite emotional. The train ride and visiting the Commonwealth War Cemetery gave an added sense of occasion.
Would have like to have lingered a little longer to remember those FEPOWs whose lives were cut short on the death railway. Quite memorable!
Incredible trip reminding us of what we should never forget. Very Moving cemetery visit, the museums haunting images depicting the sacrafice of this monumental feat. Guide - Peter and our driver were fantastc.
It was a great tour. The programme was well managed. The arranged lunch was adequate and tasty! And the guide, Tom Tom, was an excellent host, and knowledgeable.
Really loved this trip.
Picked up on time and by a lovely driver, the minibus was clean and comfortable and the guide share a few information along the way as well as the places visited.
All was good, the highlights was the train ride, we actually upgraded to a first class (+200thb), it was not necessary but enjoyable, more space to enjoy both sides of the ride.
Lunch was in a lovely quiet homestay and the food was fresh and great.
I would recommend this tour.
excellent time had
a long day
meet others from around the world
bus was clean
friendly tour operators
boat ride was a bit scary but needed the experience of the river kwai
the tour opened our eyes what others have done for us today
This was a well organised trip and carefully timed so that we got the most out of it. We were taken to a Second World War cemetery and a museum to explain the background to the Bridge. We experienced the Bridge in three ways - sailing under it by motor launch, walking across and travelling over it appropriately by train. The trip was rounded off by a wonderful buffet lunch.
As a solo traveler, this tour was just perfect
There was a considerable time travelling to and from the River Kwai but I would say it was certainly worth the effort!
This is an amazing trip which will appeal to all for it's variety and great experiences.
You will be amazed and moved! We loved every minute!!!
Today was a special day, a day to pay respect. What a wonderful way to do it.Thankyou.
Definitely worth the money we spent and I highly recommend it. The guide was really good with a great personality. While I enjoy traveling around on my own, it was definitely nice not to have to worry about the transportation to and from and be able to relax. The Bridge on the River Kwai was better than I expected and the JEATH Museum was interesting.
Excellent tour with a good guide and the train and boat rides on the river were a wonderful experience.
This trip was exactly what I expected and more. The tour guide was funny, personable and very knowledgeable on the history of Thailand, the River Kwai, surrounding provinces, vegetation and so much more. He made us feel very comfortable and really tried to ensure that each of us were enjoying our experience. The size of our group was perfect at 7 and we were able to spend enough time at each location without feeling rushed. The food was great at the restaurant and the staff very accommodating. Our driver was very kind and navigated us safely from Bangkok to each of our destinations and back. This is the way to go if you want a hassle free, well organized, fun and informative experience. I will tell my friends and family this trip is a must! The tour guide also does an awesome rendition of Country Roads. :-
No surprises as prior reviews had listed the pros and cons correctly. So long as you recognize there is a lot of time on the bus 2.5 -3 hours each way, the tour should fulfill all your expectations. We only had 10 on our tour so lots of room to stretch on the bus and it was very personalized. Our guide Pooi did a great job. We saw larger tour groups who didnt get to take the river boat ride and sat in the regular train seats perhaps no option? so felt our group was a bit more special. All of us upgraded additional 200 baht each for the reserved seats and it was worth it. Luckily the train ran on time sometimes it is late so we all made it back to the hotels before 6:00 which as especially nice. We also visited the Death Museum where you catch the boat so the larger tours didnt do this either. Overall the museum was just ok nothing special but it gave you a good sense of the reality of situation through the real photos you saw of the prisoners conditions. Their conditions were unimaginable. Book this one if you only have a day.
Excellent tour, well worth the money Tiny was brilliant and funny, even though she was loosing her voice. Excellent day highly recommended.
This was a great tour and not a minute of our time was waisted. The bus was comfortable and our guide Peter, simply a great friendly knowledgeable man.You could ask him anything and he had an answer
Lunch was great and the trip on the train memorable. The short boat trip was also enjoyable and the visit to the museum will be remembered.
Although it was a long day with travelling which we knew beforehand it was a very enjoyable outing. Good guide and very informative and treated us as his family. The cemetery was sad and reminded us of the sacrifices made pby so many young people. The bridge, train and boat ride were enjoyable and the food was varied and delicious. Just an outstanding tour and highly recommended. Anyone not enjoying the tour would be hard to please
Really enjoyed this tour. The train ride was fun. Paying the extra for a guaranteed seat was very much worth it! Lovely meal in restaurant at the final destinstion.
Amazing to see and read inscription at the war cemetery , bought home the fact that we should be grateful to all those soldiers who faught for our freedom in the war.
Highly recommend . Very nice guide who was friendly and informative.
Very interesting day it was all very well organised
A long old day, but very much worth it
