We booked a full day tour to Kwai River and Tiger Temple with this company, and it was THE WORST THING EVER. First, the lady that picked us up didn't speak any english, and made us hop in a very dirty van. It was falling into pieces, it smelled bad, the driver was a little bit crazy and in a bad mood.
Then, after picking some other passengers, we stopped at one corner and waited...waited...then the lady got off the van and left, without any explanation. After about 15 minutes, another person came by, and greeted us in a funny Thainglish...it wasn't english.
Then, after a whole hour, we stopped at a gas station, and the tour guide told us to buy water, or coffee, eat something, use the toilets, and then we could go.
After 20 minutes, we continued our trip towards the River Kwai. At some point, the guide decided to talk, and showed us some lame B&W photocopies of something that looked like an illustration of the area we were going. (colored by hand with pencils) He started to tell a story, but we couldn't understand what he was saying, besides the "boom boom, bombs everywhere, boom boom", that's all we got.
Stopped at the Cemetery, then continued to the River Kwai. Once at the "museum", the guide made us sneak in with another group, without paying...we were looking at each other like "what? why? this isn't right"...
After that, the tour was supposed to continue by speed boat, but of course, the guide told us that it was free by van, and if we wanted to take the speed boat we had to pay extra. Since I didn't want to talk to him anymore, and was trying to have a good time, we just payed the boat and had a very nice time at the river.
At the bridge, our super guide was waiting for us, just to inform that that was the bridge, boom boom, many bombs, and we had 20 minutes to walk. The van with the driver was going to be waiting for us.
After crossing the bridge, we headed to the van, met a part of the group and the driver just took Off. We never knew what happened to the Guide, he just turned on the van and we left. He didn't even try to speak in english, so we were a little bit scared for a half an hour untill we arrived to a place where we were supposed to have lunch.
It wasn't that bad, but it definitely wasn't what it was specified on the web site. Food was cold, it wasn't very good, plenty of flies, very hot..agh, I just don't want to remember this anymore.
We finished lunch and went to the Tiger Temple. If we didn't go to that place, I would have started crying right there. But those tiger made my entire trip worth the pain. If you go to Bangkok, you MUST visit the Tiger Temple
Then, the tour guide magically appeared, and told us to go to the toilets. We told him we were fine, just wanted to go back to Bangkok...but he wouldn't move until we went (Crazy old man)
After 2 1/2 hours of super unpleasant drive to Bangkok, we got stuck in traffic. Of course, it's Bangkok, so the tour guide told us to take the Sky Train, or Walk to the hotel.
I ran out the minivan, and just walked so fast to the hotel, being so mad and frustrated at this awful service...When we arrived at the hotel, I asked them to call to this company, and cancel the other tours we had booked with them.
I hated it so much, I still don't forgive myself for not getting down that van when I first noticed something was wrong.
