We had a fully packed day to Kanchanaburi with a super friendly and helpful driver. We visited the Cemetery (including. Museum), the bridge, the cave and the Hellfire pass. Our driver was super patient and let us explore at our own pace. It was a long long drive and even longer day but it was worth it. Unfortunately we were stuck in many traffic jams but that is beyond everyone's control. We highly recommend this.

This is a smart choice if you are interested in going to erawan falls only. The driver did take us to river kwai bridge prior to erawan falls. Since i was not interest in other sites, this was the best decision I made and saved me a lot of money.

Really the best experience to see Kanchanaburi. A private tour for the 2 of us, excellent explanation and beautiful accommodations and activities. Highly recommended!

It was so fun with Mr Run….. he speaks good English and has a good sense of humor … pretty long drive tho

A really great journey with a very great driver. Easy, Simple & Fantastic !
