The trip was overall excellent. The waterfalls was beautiful! Only wishes it rained more so that there would be more water but thats just the season. The itinerary started off with the hike which was great as there was hardly anyone around on the trail.

Driver was on time and attentive. The guide Mot was very knowledgeable and accomodative to our request and change of itinerary. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Just like the reviews said, it was amazing!!!!! Jackie, our tour guide, was 10/10. He was so funny and knowledgeable. We swam in two of the waterfalls, tier 7 has lots of fish that’ll nibble your feet while tier 2 was nicer to swim in but definitely do both. Lunch was incredible and so was the bridge over the river Kwai. Would absolutely recommend this tour.

Jackie is simply one of the most affable and friendly guides. He was very knowledgeable about the waterfalls and was so encouraging, making the hike up enjoyable. He set a good pace, allowing us to enjoy each level of the waterfall but still make it up in good time.

Jackie was our tour guide and was an amazing guide and very fun to spend the day with! He has great English and was very kind to let us swim and see things at our own pace while still making it in time to everything worthy of seeing. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the falls with a driver included because getting there is not very easy unless through a guided tour.

It was great trip with our guide Jackie who has deep knowledge about nature and is heartwarming person. I thought it would be busy a day trip to Kanchanaburi but we had enough time to enjoy hiking and sightseeing.

I strongly recommend this tour to my friends.

Thank you, Jackie and Tank you the driver, Kuhn Samkid.

In addition, I want to say thank you to the operator, Kuhn Sushen who helped me a lot to book this tour and always replied so quick.

We spent a day exploring the Erawan Falls with Jackie, and he was a friendly, knowledgeable and confident guide.

Jackie helped to set a good pace for the hike to the top of Erwan Falls. We never felt pressurised to move on when stopped to look a beautiful sight or photo opportunity, but Jackie ensured we had an opportunity to see all levels of the falls and even find time for a swim.

Jackie's knowledge of local wildlife and customs also helped to bring the trip to life, and we'd highly recommend his services if you're planning to visit Erawan Falls or the nearby Phra That Cave.

We had an amazing trip to Erawan Falls and Phra That Cave.

Having a private guide made the experience very enjoyable and Jackie was a lovely guide with lots of humor. Entering the cave as a solo group magnified the mystique. The falls were beautiful and being able to swim in the top waterfall pool after the hike up the mountain was very pleasant. Transportation went smoothly from and back to Bangkok.
