This tour was fantastic. Special shout-out to our guide Lek. The Maeklong Railway Market was a unique and exciting experience, as we got to witness the train passing through the market and see the vendors quickly and efficiently moving their goods out of the way. The Floating Market was also really cool, and it was great to be able to try out some of the delicious local snacks while taking in the beautiful scenery. The visit to the Death Railway was sobering but incredibly powerful, as we learned about the history and significance of the railway during World War II. It was truly humbling to stand in the same place where so many people suffered and lost their lives. All in all, I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Thailand. The combination of these three attractions was a perfect way to experience the country's history, culture, and way of life. And our tour guide Lek was a true gem - she really went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible experience.

Our tour was amazing. our tour guy, Harry, is very energetic, interactive, and informative which made the day flow smoothly. He showed us the sights, gave us plenty of space and time for pictures, and even took great pictures for us. The food we tried along the way was so good. I recommend this tour to any and everyone, and if Harry is your tour guide, you're in for a treat.

We had a great day with our guide. We were picked up early and the explanation was super. Seen and done a lot and even when we indicated that we were crazy about monkeys, the guide and our driver made sure that we could also watch them live. Both markets were a special experience. Especially the part on the River Kwai was special. Certainly our walking tour on a stretch of track and later our train journey. In short, highly recommended.
