Fantastic trip and great service.We received a letter the day before stating what time we would be picked up, we had an air conditioned mini bus with our party of 5 and 2 other travellers in it and our guide was lovely. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip, the boat ride to the actual bridge was a great way to get your first glimpse of it. Highly recommended.Reviewed by: Janet J, April 2013
Excellent trip, long journey but well worth it. Must do if you dont mind the journey. Sadly we lost our photos, anyone got any up to date thatwe could purchase?Reviewed by: ELIZABETH M, March 2013
The trip was every bit as exciting as expected and more. Upon arrival at my hotel, I was given as message from you confirming the time the next day for picking me up. We had a great tour guide who was right on time. Myself and six British people were in a very comfortable van. We made stops along the way and saw the cemetery and a museum and things I didn't realize were included. Seeing the bridge from a long tail boat was exciting to me. We also had time to shop before the train ride. What a fantastic ride we had with outstanding scenery. The food we had before finishing our journey was spectacular. I couldn't have had a better day.Reviewed by: Carol N, March 2013
This tour was very good, informative and enjoyable. Our guide was great, she knew her stuff and was very friendly. Visiting the museum and cemetery were quite moving considering the awful things that happened to so many service people. It was important to better understand this part of Australia's history. The train trip was a highlight and fun.Reviewed by: Anna S, March 2013
The tour was a long day, in total 13 hours! This was mainly for pick up from various hotels then dropped off at the main coach on the outskirts of Bangkok, then the same repeated [in reverse], coming back.
We also ,after seeing the Bridge,made a long detour north, supposedly for the included Lunch,but in fact it was to pick up tourists as well, who had stayed in the Jungle overnight and dropped off by a previous coach party!
This in total made the day long and tiring and instead of the 10 Hours stated, it took 13 Hours!
Putting this aside, seeing the Bridge,Cemetery,Train Ride and Boat Ride was a Great Experience and we wouldn't have missed it for the world!
That's why we have given this Tour 4 Stars!
