It is worth & I recommend!
Nov 2019 • Couples
My trip was good more than I expected even it was just 2 of us, TripGuru still managed for us a great tour guide and a good driver. Nancy was amazing & go beyond. She has all knowledge for the tour & took care of us during the trip. We were glad to have such a good trip with TripGuru. Even it was a long drive trip & raining but we had so many good memories about the trip. Meeting up with local by mistakes and was treated with kindness. I will keep up with TripGuru next time.

Well planned day tour with an amazing tour guide
Sep 2019
Everything went well and as expected. Nina, our tour guide had brought us snacks to eat which was delicious. She was funny and very talkative. We were running short on time but still, she made sure that we cover what was part of the itinerary. She also helped us in buying some authentic Thai snacks and fruits. The train journey was really beautiful. The view over the river Kwai was amazing. We had a wonderful and memorable day.

Well organised and value for money - but the JEATH Museum was a waste of time
Aug 2019
We anticipated a small-group van but ended up with a comfortable Toyota Camry and personal chauffer and guide. Our driver Naywe was another speed demon so 140 was the speed at any open section of road and any gap was there to be taken! Our guide Niranya was very pleasant and told us some interesting facts about the life of Buddha (who like Jesus was a real person 2500 years ago) and the birth of the new Thailand and transition from Siam. She explained that the new King Bhumipol back in the 1930s was responsible for the abolition of slavery in Siam and that Thai Land means land of the free. The trip to Kanchanaburi (the site of the Bridge over the River Kwai) took about three hours. We visited a war cemetery where English, Australian and Dutch soldiers are buried. A beautifully maintained cemetery. We then caught the train to Namtok where there is a cliff-side viaduct of several hundred metres that was constructed as part of the infamous Burma-Thailand railway line. We had as nice buffet lunch there and a walk on the viaduct before heading back to Kanchanburi. We then visited the JEATH museum (stands for Japan, England, Australia, Thailand, Holland) which was only second-rate. There is a better museum that we were disappointed our tour didn’t visit.
