    A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork! We started off in quite a big group, but ended up splinting to separate hotels, and so our tour continued with just two people, which was excellent! The Kwai Jungle Rafts were an incredible experience and I’d recommend to anyone. It was really interesting to hear the history or the hotel and everyone there was so friendly. Food was all delicious too.

Set at a good pace, the day was most enjoyable and interesting. Harry’s English was understandable and nothing was too much trouble.

Great! I loved this experience. My guide Bonnie was very friendly and professional. I was the only on on that tour that day and I'm glad that the company did not cancel. I have a private visit so and it was sooooo nice. Bonnie take well care of me and take a lot of pictures of me during all the trip, always with the smile. Best tour I had in Thailand

The van team were excellent, kept us informed on where we were going, what we would see and timings to expect. Knew all the info at the various sites we visited and treated us as friends. Although the Kwai Bridge is very commercial, there was no pestering from sellers. Would heavily recommend but watch it is a long journey there and back from Bangkok

Wonderful trip in Erawan and River Kwai bridge, with a fabulous guide Harry. He's really perfect, funny, and he presents you this trip as a dream, I recomand Harry, he's fantastic ...

Due to concerns over coronavirus my wife and I were the only two people on the trip. We were however still given the full tour and received excellent treatment.

Very nice and lots of room for adapting to our needs
