Private Tour | Erawan Falls | day tour from Bangkok

Our tours are private, meaning no others will share the transfer or the guide with you.

Kanchanaburi Province in west Thailand is home to several natural and historical sites popular among both local and foreign tourists. Erawan National Park in the province, with its famous falls, is no doubt one of the most iconic attractions in Thailand but it is also one of the most beautiful falls in entire Asia.


A day-tour to Erawan Falls includes transfer from Bangkok, visiting Erawan National Park where you can hike up to all seven tiers enjoy swimming in the ponds and visiting a nearby cave. The cave may get closed if there has been heavy rain lately, in case, you will be able to visit The Bridge over River Kwai in the Kanchanaburi City instead.

Where & When?

This full day tour can be booked all year round except on long week-ends and holidays when the waterfalls get too overcrowded.

Our guide will meet you at 6:30 am in your hotel’s lobby in Bangkok. Driving time to the falls takes about 3 hours & 15 mins. After the tour you will be taken back to your hotel, with expected return time to hotel around around 7 to 8pm.

During the dry season there is not much flow of water but it will be beautiful as the water gets crystal clear.

My group and I had such a pleasant experience on our tour. We booked about 4 days in advance, and communication came extremely fast and answered all our questions. Our driver Aod was wonderful and showed up early, stopped when we needed to for a restroom and snack break, and dealt with all the traffic to and from Bangkok. Our tour guide was Fang, and he was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the landscape and its history, and was kind enough to take lots of pictures of us. He gave us plenty of time at each destination to explore and take photos, and I couldn’t recommend him enough.

We had a wonderful day hiking and swimming at Erawan falls. Our guide, Fang, was fantastic! He went at our pace, took lots of pictures of us, and even carried our life jackets for us on the way up, and my daypack on the way down (when I was wearing my life jacket). He told us about the plants and animals in the park as well. Erawan is a long day trip from Bangkok, but definitely worth it. It’s beautiful and peaceful.

Great day. Picked up on time from hotel in comfortable, air conditioned van, and picked up our lovely guide in Kanchanburi. The waterfalls are incredibly beautiful and we loved being able to swim in them. The walk up to the different levels is easy enough, just hot! Saw lots of lizards and colourful butterflies. We stopped for lunch at a Riverside cafe (delicious selection of food), then had a bonus visit to the bridge over the river Kwai and a little long boat trip before heading back to Bangkok. A great day out and highly recommend.

Andy was a great tour guide! He's certainly speedy, but we were able to see a lot of stuff and he's fun along the way! Lunch was also a huge spread that we weren't able to even eat all of.

I guess you expect me to rate the trip not my review :D.

It was great though strenuous. Maybe it was great because it was strenuous. The guide was sweet, knowledgeable, friendly. Keep him :D.

The snake in the cave was okay.

Our Day trip to the Phratat Cave & Erawan Falls was surely one to remember! Everything from our Tour Guide, to the pickup and drop off service, food and experience itself were all a 10/10. Totally worth a day of exploring when in Thailand!
