If you are looking for a way to see the floating markets and the river Kwai as an independent traveler who is looking for a way to get there then this is the tour for you. Our tour guide did not spend a lot of time on giving us any information on the market or on anything else. I would say this was one of the more disappointing tours that I have been on. This turned out to be a four bus transfer from Bangkok to the floating market to Kwai and back again. This tour, in my opinion, is nothing but a transportation service thinking it is otherwise will leave you very disappointed.

Very knowledgeible guide but difficult to understand. Interesting trip and we enjoyed it. No water or cold cloth provided which makes a huge difference when you are wilting. Lunch was very poor,meat was tough and tofu shrivelled.Floating market- paddle boat good fun, sadly motorised boats ruining atmosphere and bad fumes for genders.Long trip but good experience.

This was a good overview of he floating markets and bridge. Could have been a little more history and point out things along the long journey to get there.

An early start, the minibus arrived at our hotel on time. After pickups at 2 more hotels we arrived at the main departure point and transferred to a coach. There were only 9 of us on the tour so plenty of space. The floating market was excellent although it was very busy. We then had a reasonably long journey to Kanchanaburi for the JEATH war museum, a very good lunch, the immaculate war cemetery and bridge of the river Kwai. The trip was well worth the long journey home and long day. 2 trips in 1. Highly recommended if your time in Thailand is limited.
