    Detour from the usual BKK tour

    A humbling experience to learn about the tragic history of the Bridge on the River Kwai and the Death Railway. We were able to visit the JEATH War Museum and the Allied War Cemetery as well which gave us a more detailed glimpse on the atrocities committed during the war. The tour guide spoke in conversational English and explained some information about the places that we visited but there have been instances where he would just say a few things and then leave us to ourselves (not entirely a bad thing to be honest). Also, if the airconditioning in the van can be improved, that would be great. The van that we used during the tour had problems with its aircon. All in all, I would recommend booking this tour to take a break from all the temple-running and hopping that most tourists do in Bangkok.

    Very touristy, but worth a day trip

    Although the Thai - Burma Death Railway has become incredibly commercialized now, I would say it is worth a visit if you are in the area. The historical significance of the place cannot be understated and even though I thought I knew a lot, the JEATH War Museum adds context to the overall experience. The boat ride and train ride are nice touches to the tour as well.

    Rainy Sunday but fun

    It was raining on our way back to Bangkok which made us arrived at the hotel a but later than expected. Other than that the tour was good fun and we learn a lot from the trip and it is a very interesting place to see as well.

    Cool cool trip

    It is very interesting to know about the world war two that occurred in another side of the world. All the information we got from the guide was great . The guide gave us lots of details. He was good fun

    Well organized trip

    I was on the trip with my husband and we both enjoyed the trip. It was a little commercialized but our guide ensured that we have a good time.

    Quick service, touristy experience

    Everyone at Voyagin was great and the booking experience was pretty much flawless, so I would definitely be booking with them again. However, the trip was quite touristy and the museum is not of european standards. The guide did try his best and interesting knowledge though

    Knowledgeable Guide, Good Day Out.

    Our guid was very good and knowledgeable. he patiently explain the history and how it shapes the current culture of the people. It was haunting but serene at the same time.

    Crowded, but nice

    The bridge is a great spot to reflect upon the conditions of POWs during WWII and so-called "feel their pain", but it's very crowded too - I was expecting far less people. The railway is still in use too, which came as much of a surprise since we had to move out of the way for an oncoming train!
