This tour was great !!! We were picked up promptly and headed towards the first stop. At the first spot we meet up with our tour guide who was with us all day! O (our tour guide) was amazing ! Very informative and helpful in anything we needed. She explaining everything at every stop and always informed us of the time to the next destination or what the next step was.
The tour was very well put together. We first stoped at Death Railway and we’re given an introduction to the area and history and were given time to explore on our own. Next stop, waterfalls and lunch. O gave us information about the waterfalls and then gave us free time! There was a new rule being enforced at the waterfalls and O was very quick and helpful to help solve that issue for us.
Last stop was River Kwai Tour. It was awesome to ride the train and learn along the way.
O was amazing and really made you feel like a friend very quickly !
10/10 would go again

I wanted to see Erawan Falls. I also wanted to tour the area where the Japanese forced the Allied and local prisoners to build the railroad connecting Thailand and Burma. To my knowledge, this was the only tour that combined both. It's a 2 hour ride from Bangkok to the falls.

Erawan has 7 levels of waterfalls. Most only get to level 5 because the terrain and degree of difficulty increase with each level. I have a slight disability and only made it to 4. Those who are fit can probably make it all of the way. What is good is that the Falls is the first stop and you have 4 hours until you need to report back to the guide. A free lunch is then provided at one of the restaurants near the entrance/exit to the park.

Next comes a drop off at an old WWII area. You're allowed to walk across the train bridge and enjoy the river scenery. As it gets closer to the time that the train will be coming, the guide calls everyone back to the train pick up area. It's a pleasant 45 minute train ride along the river on one side and fields and distant mountains on the other. After a number of stops, the guide tells the group to get off at the next one.

The tour van has driven to pick the group up at the train stop. After a 30-40 minute drive, the group is let off at another historical WWII site. This time, we only have 30 minutes to do a lot! There's another bridge to walk across. At certain sections there are stairs in order to get down to an area that has local merchants marketing their goods. There is an old guard tower from the prison camp, a museum and a P.O.W. cemetary. I'm not sure where the P.O.W. cemetary was, I didn't see it. If I had a complaint at all, it would be that I think there should be more time to see things at the end.

We were probably rushed a bit at the end because we were running behind. What was supposed to be a 10 hour tour became a 12 hour tour. Considering how much territory was covered, the price was extremely affordable and reasonable. The guides were very friendly and helpful. I gave this tour a rating of 4. Now that I am done with this review, I'm going to try to change it to a 5!

The places themselves were nice but I was really looking forward to a tour guide, they didn’t really say anything nor even introduce themselves
Before being switched to another and just texted in the phone like the other reviews said. Someone in the group got bit by a monkey and wanted to go to the hospital and they pretty much ignored her the whole time. I didn’t like how they handled that. I would book with a different company this one is sloppy and unorganized. But the places themselves are beautiful and rich. Also please be careful of monkeys, don’t bring food. Or shiny objects.

By far the Waterfalls were the highlight of this journey and the tour guides were as lovely as they come.
They were more than informative and friendly but helpful even in ensuring we took the right paths in our future travel after we left the area to travel south. Highly recommended.

Driver was late 45 minutes without explanation. We used google translator to have simple communication like toileting. Places to visit were an excellent experience.

I booked this “tour” despite have trepidation because it hit all 3 things I wanted to do in 1 day. As advertised it did go to these sites as promised and I am happy I was able to see all 3. However that is the end of the positives for this “tour”. Guide joined us at River Kwai, walked us over to the plague and told us to read the information for ourselves. Gave us a few minutes to take pictures, then back in the van for the trip to erawan. Similar experience there. Guide walked us to the base of the falls, told us to pick up the brochure and read about the falls for ourselves. Lunch was supposed to be at 2 with departure for train at 2:30. Apparently this was a very loose guideline which I made the mistake of taking seriously because although I arrived for lunch late I made sure to finish by 2:30 (by the way this was the first food break offered all day which went from 8:30am to 9:30 at night) and hopped in the van in my wet bathing suit. I proceeded to freeze in the air conditioned van for the next 30 minutes while we waited for other members of our group who arrived at 2:30 and proceeded to order there food. Eventually we left without them at 3:00 for another 45 minute drive (still freezing). Train ride was fine, though short. On the way back to Bangkok our van broke down meaning another delay while we joined in with another group in their equally decrepit looking van. During the whole day “guide” is texting and driver is taking personal calls. Finally arrived back in Bangkok after 9pm to Khao San road where driver tried to drop us all off. Keep in mind this was supposed to be a pick up and drop off at ones hotel. I insisted they drive me back to my hotel which I knew was just around the corner. Two drivers proceeded to argue about who was going to drive me back. Eventually the original driver took me but blew past my hotel until I told him to stop! Needless to say I hoped out of there as fast as I could. On top of all this poor service the charge for this “tour” was double what was advertised on trip advisor. Would not recommend this tour.

We chose this trip tour operator over another less expensive one because it advertised guides and the other one had some quite bad reviews. However, at times I felt that maybe I had the reviews mixed up as some of the bad reviews matched some of the trip I was having.

Pick up from hotel - on time but no communication from the driver as to what was happening next - we were driven around Bangkok for the next hour picking out more people.

We then stopped and everyone sat around in mini-van with no clue as to what was happening. After about 10 mins we were then given stickers and directed to another minivan. After another 5-10 mins another driver got in and starting driving - still no communication as what was happening such as time to get there - no local information just a driver who basically ignored us and drove.

After a couple of hours, we finally stopped just before the river Kwai and picked up a guide (?) - who then just told us when and where to get off the minibus and when to meet after seeing the falls. I was disappointed not to be given more information along the route and have a guide telling us about points of interest along the way.
Part of the reason I go on tours is to learn about the culture and history - this is not the trip to do if you want that.

At the falls more information could have been given as to the change over in the transportation. The falls themselves were great but we were late leaving which made the whole day longer than needed.

After the falls we were in a different minivan with a slightly better guide who managed to give us a couple of sentences regarding where we were going next

At the death valley train, the guide was good at making sure we were we supposed to be at the right places at the right times and helped us find toilets and water.

After the train ride, we had to wait a while for the minibus to catch up with as it had to take some other people to another attraction.

The drive back to the city was uneventful except the driver not having been told that we were supposed to be dropped off back at our hotel. He did drop us off in the end and was nice about it.

All in all - we did see all the places we were supposed to although had to google information about them. The guides managed to get us where we supposed to be at the right times. The lunch wasn't great but passable.

Overall for the money spent I would not travel with this company again.

Did not get picked up,three calls later by our concierge they send a taxi for us who about 20 min.later dropped us off in the middle of some road in a rather nasty neighborhood and told us we would get picked up in 5 min. which was not true. We attemptrd to call and the whatsapp number is a non-working #. It was our dream to go to River Kwai so we stopped a policeman to call on our behalf and he was told to instruct us to walk 2 shady blocks and wait there. 10 minutes later an extremely old a dirty van packed with people finally arrived. After such ordeal, we stopped to pick up the tour guide at her house, she barely spoke English and texted during the whole trip. Upon our arrival we were told we had only 20 minutes to take pictures. I can go on and on about this nightmare. Bottom line I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. It is irresponsible and dangerous to expose tourists to this type of situation.

The Climbing to the top was lot easier than i expected, take caution while climbing, rocks are very slippery. I also recommend a good pair of hiking shoes. I really loved this trip. Thanks kiyzo management for arranging.
