Guide is very informative, time is well-managed. Learned a lot from this tour and the views are splendid. Guide takes awesome pix as well! Especially recommend buying food with ancient money at Malika. Recommend this trip. Last place in the itinerary has a lovely view, best way to end the tour with a cold beverage.
note: trip is approx 3 hrs so you catch up on sleep! 😁
Sufficient time for each activity was well planned. Tour was conducted in a small group, had to accommodate to Chinese speaking group as we were the only ones who chose the English option in the group. Tour guide Tommy gave detailed historical stories of each location and was helpful in taking photographs for everyone in the group.
Our tour guide was Tommy and he was very good. He had great knowledge of the place and he was fluent in both English and Chinese. The tour started on time and was lots of fun with enough time spent at each location. The lunch was superb, too. Definitely will recommend people to take this tour. Thank you Tommy for everything. You are one of the best tour guides I've had.
Great experience. My tour guide name is Tommy. He is one of the best tour guide. Very energetic, passionate, helpful, friendly and positive person. He explained a lot about places we visit, about the background, history, etc. Also, he give lots of useful information for travelling in Thailand. You have to try this and gain your knowledge more about WW 2. Superb!
The restaurant for lunch have great view but the time allocated is kinda of short.
If long timing at the bridge could is better to better explore the surrounding.
Great job on the tour guide as his partner is sick, left him alone to handle the big group.
But he still must great effort to help everyone take photos etc.
