We went on a trip together with Tommy and really liked us!
The day prior to the trip he contacted us to confirm again the pickup time. He arrived on time and waited for us. From the first moment onwards he was really friendly and welcoming. We drove with his car (clean and comfy) to Kanchanaburi and visited first the museum and then the cemetery. It was really interesting, especially because we learnt back in school mainly about WWII in Europe. Learning about what happened in Asia, gave us completely new information! After that we drove to the bridge over the river where we could take some pictures. In the meantime, Tommy got the tickets - very organized :)
From there we took the train on the historical railway to a stop with a cave having a buddha inside. He drove his car and met us at the station. We had lunch with an incredible view on the river and took some more pictures.
Not only was the lunch included but Tommy also had water for us during the whole trip.
We drove to Erawan National Park and walked to the waterfall. We could have also take a golf cart but we preferred walking. Tommy told us about the most beautiful levels of the waterfall (as there are 7 in total). We decided to hike up until the last level. Due to humidity it was not always easy, but the feeling afterwards was really rewarding. We highly recommend to wear sneakers that can become a bit muddy and wet. It can be slippery, so don’t go only with Flipflops.
After the hike we rewarded ourselves with a swim on level 4 and slided down the rock! It was a lot of fun :) we headed back to Bangkok and felt always safe during the drive. Tommy was also very flexible and extended the stay at the waterfall. We got again some snacks for the way back!
In a nutshell: it was a great experience!

Excellent day tour
My wife and I booked this tour at the very last minute via WhatsApp and the booking process was very easy. 'Tommy' was on time for our 0630 hours start, meeting us in our hotel lobby. He was very personable and his English was good. We opted for the floating market and railway market tour. The whole day was well planned to avoid the rush. Tommy was very flexible with the timings of the day which allowed us to spend longer at the floating market and experience the crowds.

Lovely, Splendid, Fulfilling
My biggest concern when booking this tour was my safety as I’m a female and I was travelling alone. I had just found out about Takemetour when I was doing extensive research regarding the best tour for solo travellers. However, after reading the Trust and Safety facts on the website I‘ve decided to give it a go. Prayuth T. arrives earlier than expected, which was a good start. The tour went as planned. We went to the places as stated in the itinerary. It’s a one on one tour so I said to him we do not have to rush as I do not have any other plans for the day. Thus, the tour’s timing was really flexible and we actually stretched the time a little further. In the itinerary it says that the tour will end around 1300pm but we ended the tour around 1800pm! Nevertheless, I do not mind it, in fact I really appreciate it as he’s willing to spend his time with me. I am an inquisitive person so I do asks him a lot of questions along the tour. He answered patiently and tried his best to give me the answers. We actually had a nice conversation throughout the day and we exchanged lots knowledge and information regarding various topics such as culture, religion, entertainment, nature, etc. Now I know more about Thailand and about Thai people. Prayuth T. also cares about his customer as he kept on asking if I am hungry or wanted to eat or wanted to try something new. I can see that he’s giving his best to serve his clients. Prayuth T.’s FAQs were right, I did get more than I expected and he did surprises me. If I’m going to Thailand again I will definitely seek for his tours if he is available. His English is considered good for a local Thai as most Thais do not speak English. For me it's the effort that matters, not perfection. Highly recommended him.
