    Really loved the day tour organized. Took loads of great photos and met some wonderful people on this tour. The highlight had to be the train ride through kanchanaburi after seeing the death railway

What To Expect

Head out to Kanchanaburi, Thailand's third largest province, located west of Bangkok, and spend a day learning about the turbulent history of the area. You'll first visit the War Cemetery, the main burial ground for prisoners of war during the Japanese occupation in the early 1940s, and the JEATH War Museum where casualties from the construction of the notorious Burma-Siam railway are commemorated. Next stop is the bridge over the River Kwai, a historical landmark that is part of the Death Railway. The history of the bridge is well known, as it was part of the railway lines in World War II and had seen its share of conflict and bloodshed. It also served as inspiration to the novel by Pierre Bouelle chronicling the horrific events that unfolded, which was later adapated into a Hollywood movie. If you opt for a private tour, you’ll get a chance to ride a boat across the River Kwai before having your lunch and departing for Bangkok in the afternoon.

    First they confirmed, took my payment and issued a voucher and then the cancelled it, telling me at 5pm the night before the trip that my voucher had been invalidated. I eventually managed to book for another day and was made to pay extra for the privilege. The tour was awful. We spent nearly all day sitting either in the minivan or in a train. The 'guide' provided was only there to rudely point us in the directions we needed to go and inform us when we had to meet again. The driver ate, drank and looked at his phone while driving. Redeeming features? The lunch spot was pretty and I appreciated my half an hour of reflection in the war cemetery. There are better ways of achieving this, and Klook is not the company that will help you find them.

    I believe that this is an automatic request of KLOOK to ask for REVIEW, otherwise I thought KLOOK is too stupid. * We (3 passengers including 1 child) DID NOT join this tour just because the operator DID NOT pick us up at 06:00AM * The operator asked us to join a private tour instead with extra surcharge at 06:30AM * The operator DID NOT answer our phone calls on both hotlines since we refused to pay extra money for the suggested private tour!!! * The operator had no solution for the on-the-ground customers * KLOOK jumped in to find a solution but nothing is solved and problems still there!!! Please give me clear explanation and compensation! Seriously!!!

    Heard much about Death Railway and wanting to expose the children to this aspect of history, we signed up for this package. The visits to Jeath War Museum, Kanchanaburi War Memorial and Death Railway was enriching. The 2nd half of the itinerary for elephant trekking n river rafting was a new experience for the children. However, it was a disappointing package as the highlight of the ride on the train n the waterfall was not fulfilled as per the description on Klook! The trip to Kanchanaburi is not short n to feel 'cheated' that the main reason we chose this package was for these 2 exact experience n yet did not materalise! It was truly a disappointment as it is highly unlikely that I will visit there again. Despite telling the guide that these 2 were inside the description of the package, we were told that we had to pay extra if we wanted as it was not on his itinerary! Upset n disappointed! Could Klook please look into this n assign package to the right agent?

    Trip to Jeath War Museum, Kanchanaburi War Memorial, Death Railway and Elephant Trekking was good. My son and I learnt a lot. Lunch was a good spread and sumptuous. However, we werent taken to the waterfall and ride in the train as per the description on Klook apps. These two highlights were actually left out! The local guide assigned to us had a different set of itinerary. You bet we were very disappointed. Without the visit to waterfall and ride in the train, we felt very cheated.

    This tour is not interactive and involves a lot of driving. You should warn your guests that the traffic in Bangkok delays drop off considerably. We left Kanchanaburi at 15:00 and arrived in Bangkok after 19:00 only. Out of all the tours I have done in Thailand, this one had the worst lunch. It was basic, lacked flavour and was not filling. I would not recommend this tour.

    We enjoyed the road trip with the guide who was very knowledgeable . The only issue was the extra charges that we were not aware off until we got there . There should be a breakdown of expenses e.g. boat trip and train ride prices to prepare you to bring enough baht.The food was good please include water to the buffet. All other trips include that into their buffet.

    1) timing given to me for move out is 630am. But the guide say the booking is done at 6am. 2) alot of extra cost needed to be paid on the way. Was not informed before hand. 3) program not same as given on the website. No water fall. 4) tour guide is kind and friendly.

    A nice side trip from Bangkok. Everything was great but it would've been better if the local tour operator handled problems very well. The train was packed that we needed to ride another one in the afternoon. The lunch which was included on the package didn't come with drinks, they should've told that earlier.
