Very interesting trip. Excellent driver but Guide lacked knowledge and told us very little. Very nice lady but she needs some training. Once she’s had that, I’m sure she will be very good!

A long drive in an uncomfortable van led to a brief tour a cheap lunch and a longer ride back. Got a tour of a grave yard, a 20 minute elephant ride which was fun and a 15 minute raft ride which was OK, but would not recommend.

It was very moving being at the River Kwae Bridge, and traveling on the railroad. It was a bit creepy, especially going past a huge resort that was once a Japanese POW camp. The food was excellent. Our tour guide and driver were attentive to our needs ( I am handicapped ).
