    What an amazing day! Our guide, Ya, and our driver picked us up at our hotel promptly at 6:30. We rode in a comfortable air-conditioned van. We were fortunate that it was just the three of us! (Pro-tip: We went on a Monday, and Ya shared with us that it’s least crowded during the weekdays because people from Bangkok flock to Kanchanaburi Province to hike to the Erawan Falls and raft on the River Khwae (River Kwai) on weekends). It’s a fairly long ride, about 100 miles / 2.5 hours plus about 20 minutes for a brief stop on the way to the infamous Bridge on the River Kwai. Then it’s another hour to Erawan National Park (Erawan = elephant) to hike to the different levels of the waterfalls. The trail is well maintained, but it is a bit of a workout going up and down. Swimming in the falls at level 2 and level 5 was really cool, figuratively and literally. You are required to wear a life jacket to swim in any of the waterfall pools, and you must rent them for 20 Bhat each (this is an out-of pocket extra). Lunch (included) was at a little restaurant featuring traditional Thai foods. The elephant reserve was awesome. We cut and mixed fruit and rice balls, fed the elephants, and bathed them in the River Kwai. The staff provides blue cotton shorts and tops (included) to wear while bathing the elephants. A tip of 200 Bhat (about $5.60) is suggested for each of the elephant handlers. The final stop was the Buddha Cave on the River Kwai near the location of the former POW camp where Australian POWs and local civilians were forced to build the railway bridge along the precarious cliffs. The final journey back to Bangkok took another roughly 3 hours due to evening traffic, and we arrived back at our hotel at promptly 7:00 pm. Ya was such an informative and friendly guide and we had a great time. A tip of 1000 Bhat (approximately $28) per party is a much appreciated, but not required tip for your guide and another 500 Bhat for the driver (our driver was very much surprised and deeply appreciative). Highly recommended excursion!!!

    JJ called us the night before to clarify a few priorities and times, then planned an exquisite private tour of the train market, 2 floating markets and a few other stops. JJ was knowledgeable and filled us in on many Thai customs which gave greater insight into our tour stops. A must do tour, and ask for JJ

    I loved seeing all the temples and the palaces because our tour guide, Bond, was so knowledgeable. She didn't just follow a script, you could tell she knew a lot because we asked a lot of questions. She also kept us in high spirits on such a hot day.

    5 stars from beginning to end. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an experience rich in culture and history. What made it 5 Stars was our incredible guide Jill. She was knowledgeable, patient accommodating, punctual and truly was focused on how to make the day exactly what we wanted to achieve. She was passionate about the information and made it interesting. She answered question after question with enthusiasm. When she learned we hadn’t gone to Wat Pho she immediately arranged for us to be dropped at the entrance so we could see before colsing. I can’t say enough about the gorgeous scenery and Jill. Paul the driver was great as well. Definitely highly endorse this tour!

    Lin was personable and knowledgeable. I felt like I could ask her anything about Thailand, which was so nice as tourists visiting Thailand for the first time. She was our translator, guide, server, photographer. The visit to the floating market was such a treat!!!! One of a kind experience. Definitely would recommend Lin as a guide to be able to experience it without the stress of figuring everything out.

    Thank you, Lin for an amazing experience!

    I loved seeing pictures of the waterfall online and made sure I found a tour that went there while I was in Bangkok. I was not as interested in the history of the Bridge over River Kwai but others were. I would have liked more time at the waterfalls, but since we did that first and the waterfall last it was as much time as we could. The tour was good, don't count on the "included water" in the tour, it is just a single small bottle for the entire day. The guide was great with communicating before the trip about pickup and also taking and sharing pictures from the day. It was well worth it to take a day away from the city!

    We enjoyed our day long private tour from Bangkok to Ayutthaya. Harry our tour guide and the driver “ping pong” were right on time at 8:00 am. We got to Ayutthaya in under an hour (a pleasant surprise). It was a hot day, to be expected in June. At each site Harry took us to strategic spots and explained the historical significance of what we were seeing. He was able to answer all of our questions. Lunch was great at our second restaurant try (the first one did not seem vegetarian friendly).

    After all the sights were done we were treated to cold towels and bottles of cold water. Ping pong was a great, super smooth driver both ways. Would always open the car door for us. Nice!

    All in all, we highly recommend this tour!

    This tour was well worth the money. Ask for Lyft. She will make sure you have a great time and be your personal photographer as she shows you around her city. She is so knowledgeable and nice. We had already seen several areas on the tour, so she adjusted the plans to accommodate and show us other areas.

    I should also mention, this was my birthday trip. And Lyft made it one to remember. From decor in the van to singing bday song and gifts, I felt so special. The tour is air conditioned with plenty of water...the cooling towels are an added plus...the best. I highly recommend you check them out to get a full hassle free experience.

    Tour guide (Joe) was awesome and friendly. It’s a long drive to Kanchanaburi and back to Bangkok, so it’s great they take you in a comfortable van. Considering the limited activities and time with the elephants it is a bit overpriced and would be cheaper to organise yourself (rather than doing a tour like this). The tour was convenient though and included lunch (but the place we had lunch was fairly dingy). Overall a great time and Joe was appreciated, but this was super expensive for 2 people.
