Breathtaking and well organised experience.

This trip is absolutely worth it. Our tour was private, so it was just the two of us being driven around in a well-air conditioned car. The waterfalls are stunning. You can choose to go and see all 7 of them (walking up hill in high humidity can be quite a challenge to see the last few ones, and the path can be quite slipper - wear good water shoes), but don't worry if you don't fancy that - the first few waterfalls are all equally beautiful and not very challenging at all to get to. The water is nice and cool, a welcome refreshment from the heat/humidity with lots of fish swimming about. Some waterfalls you can slide down to the lake below. There are toilets around to get changed, some minor souvenir shops. Kwai Bridge, Buddha cave and railway ride also great. Our lunch was traditional Thai food (soup, sweet and sour chicken and some fruit). Last but not least he guide and the driver were great - well-informed and polite. Highest quality experience.

Super enjoyable trip, friendly and professional photo tour guide

We enjoyed our trip a lot and were so impressed by the beautiful waterfall in the Erawan National Park and the historic death railway. Our photo tour guide Noom definitely added lots of value to our trip. He was super friendly, professional, helpful and enthusiastic and explained to us lots of things about Thailand in detail. He has professional photography skills and knows where to take good photos and he was also very patient in helping us take many photos . All the photos he took for us were just amazing and we love all of them. We enjoyed travelling with him a lot and our trip would not have been so perfect without him. We highly recommend him to anyone who would like to take a private tour in Thailand and would like someone to help you take beautiful photos.

Quite good experience and full of historical story to exploite

The trip started early, around 6am, Our tourguide name OHM, his pronunciation is quite hard to understand. There are some expenses for this tour, the speed boat and the train (200B each), the speed boat is worth to try but the train, to be honest, was a fraud. The tour guide tried to convinced us that the train is usually full for the 3rd class, so he made us buy the 2nd class with 200B. The fact that when i was on the train, i saw i board said "100B" for everyone, included tourist., and the train is not full like he said. That was really disappointed.

The guide was key to the success of this tour.

Half of the time of this tour you spend in the van going to and from the actual tour locations. The guide made sure to provide rest breaks, lots of information, suggestions, etc. The train ride is nice. Negative: constant upselling, extra for this and that...the linch buffet was very disappointing. Only coffee and tea included as beverages,....had to pay for water! Water!

Do not miss this trip it has been the best thing we have done from BKK

Good historical long day out, optional boat to the river (300b) and when you get on the train you have the option to pay for seats (200b) both well worth it but if you’re not a boat person i’d take the drive and save your money. Walking on the tracks when the train goes is stunning too a must see if you can :)
