Kanchanaburi: Elephant Sanctuary, Death Railway & WWII Tour

★★★★★★★★★★

Interesting, enjoyable tour

The highlight of this tour is feeding and bathing the elephants. They are such majestic animals. We found the Death Museum to be very interesting since neither my husband nor I were born until after the war ended. There were many details that we learned about the suffering of the POWs forced to build the railway and the museum told the story in a way that made it very real. The raiway ride was also a good way to see some of the countryside with glimpses of how some Thai people live. We enjoyed this tour very much.

Kanchanaburi: Elephant Sanctuary, Death Railway & WWII Tour

★★★★★★★★★★

Life-changing, unforgettable, worthwhile

Had this tour with my two young boys and wife. The experience at the Elephant Sanctuary has been particularly memorable. Our family left in awe for the elephants and a renewed sense of respect for nature. The staff at the sanctuary has been professional and shown geninue for the animals.

Death Railway Museum and the train ride across River Kwai were timeless reminders of the cruelties of war and the resilience of the human spirit.

Our guide, Tun, has been an integral part of this unforgettable experience - he is thoughtful, and well-versed in Thailand's history and culture. A first-class guide!

This tour is definitely befitting of its "signature" label!
