Bangkok: River Kwai, Bamboo Rafting with Lunch

Kanchanaburi, only two hours from Bangkok, is another world altogether. Here you can ride on a bamboo raft down a river. You can also see the infamous "Death Railway," which Allied prisoners of war and local people were forced to build.

Visit the War Museum at Kanchanaburi and cemetery before taking a train ride on the Death Railway at 10:40. You will pass through the original wooden viaduct constructed by Allied POWs.

The bridge immortalized in the movie "The Bridge on the River Kwai" did not survive the war but was rebuilt. However, unlike the movie, the POWs did not destroy it, and you can find out the real story on the tour.

Following a buffet lunch at a riverside restaurant, we drive away from the city to Saiyoke Elephant Camp. Here you take a 1-hour ride through the jungle atop an elephant – quite an experience – as well as float down the river for an hour on a natural bamboo raft. A visit to a temple that looks after tigers is also possible.

Um passeio acima da média!
Serviços bem prestados com execução muito bem planejada. A baixa ficou por conta do pouco tempo no Bamboo River Cruise.

Descrizione programma errata e incompleta
Sul programma c'era scritto che sarebbe stata inclusa l'acqua per tutta la giornata invece abbiamo pagato l'acqua a pranzo e non ne è mai stata offerta tutto il giorno Cinque minuti di bamboo rafting anziché un'ora 20 minuti di elefante anziché un'ora Nessuna guida con spiegazioni solo tour leader presente per orari Lunga sosta ad una cascata asciutta da due/3anni

Beware you will not get what you pay for only terrible guides
On meeting our guide I asked to confirm that we would be doing all the activitieswe booked for, he told us no train ride because train was not running that day, I pursued tha matter about why no train ride and he then said they don't do train because it runs late, next line was that we could do train ride but we would have to pay extra, I asked each group that joined the bus if they thought they were doing train ride, 6 out of 9 had booked train but guide was going to take us to tiger temple instead so we could wait outside while 3 others visited temple. After my consistent complaining and threat of bad review they swapped us to another bus to include train ride which was the highlight. Elephant ride was 30minutes around compound not jungle, raft was towed up river for 10 minutes then drifts down 15 minutes. Restaurant for lunch is not riverside but beside highway. Guide continually tried to sell us books, book rides at extra cost etc. this tour is rushed everywhere and not enjoyable.

Not well organized and a bit deceiving.
The tour I clicked on and paid for was not exactly what I received. Tour guide actually collected money from us for something that should have been included in the tour.

The best £50 you could spend in Thailand.
The day included not only a visit to the Bridge over the River Kwai, and the museum there, which was very moving; but lunch, a ride on an elephant, and a boat and a train, and a brief visit to a local beauty spot at a waterfall. Fabulous! Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, and I would recomment this trip to anyone.

Disastrous.
This is what only some of what went wrong: 1 Bad instructions and communication as to where to meet guide at attractions to hop on a train almost missed it 2 Guide spoke little to no English 3 Shared tour car with a couple who was going on a different tour to see tigers so we would have to wait and go pick them up 4 Guide unprofessional. Especially in how he was dressed. changed into white undershirt and shorts 5 never offered water 6 Guide watching movies on ipad instead of explaining ANYTHING 7 Change in pick up location 3 times 8 We were lost in Bangkok for over and hour getting back to hotel, finally just jumped out of the van and got to hotel ourselves 9 length of elephant and raft were supposed to be 1 hr. each, only 15 minutes on each 10 After lunch as we were going to get back into van, the driver was asleep in our seats. Looked very unprofessional I would NEVER recommend this tour especially for price of 115 euros per person Attractions were great tho
