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.
