What people are saying about Thailand

Tammy and our driver were excellent. Everything from the straight forward meetup and check-in to the guided commentary enroute, train ride and market stops was just right. The train ride through the market and then wandering through was a really nice dual experience as you get two views. We had about 45 mins at Maeklong to walk through which was enough (you could probably spend all day there but if you want to do that best do the trip on your own) and ample time for getting food and souvenirs along the track, taking copious photos and seeing the train come through! pick up fruit snacks here as it is one of the cheapest places for it! The floating market was alot of fun. A really nice paddle boat ride (30+ mins) and then free time in the market which was just lovely (70-80mins). Go for a stroll to the quieter parts and just sit at one or two of the cafes or restaurants with some food and a drink. the boat noodles from one of the ladies in the boats was delicious and a unique experience.

A really fun day trip. It's definitely worth experiencing both the markets and enjoying some local street food at the Saduak Market.

Well organized and on time. Both markets were interesting and the places we stopped to see the train pass by where we’ll chosen.

It was nicely arranged and organised. The host was great and the transportation was bang on time. A must try for all.

Really good trip, both places were really interesting. Well worth the visit.
