Awesome trip in Ratchaburi!
We enjoyed our trip in Ratchaburi with Prayuth. He is an awesome tour guide and shares a lot of information about the placebwe’re visiting.
The food we had was so good! The spots we visited are amazing! My most favorite is the pottery workshop were we learned how to create and design small jars. This is a highly recommended tour!

Relaxed, fun morning.
I was picked up at 6.30am and taken to the floating markets. Once we arrived we got straight onto a boat and we floated down the river. It was very relaxed. Prayuth was very knowledge, we chatted and he told me lots of interesting facts. We then went to a coconut farm which was lovely and ended up at the train market. Prayuth was great, he knew what he was doing and created a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely use him again.

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!
