Thank you for the fantastic experience.

The day tour was great, starting with the clean and comfortable van that picked my family of four. This was truly a private tour for the 4 of us, with a guide, Jacky, and the driver. I have booked with other tour operators before and there were other people in the same bus, which wasn't very comfortable.

We started with the Erawan waterfalls and I was amazed by Jacky's stamina. He trodded on effortlessly, which encouraged us to keep going. The view at each level of the waterfalls was simply mesmerising. Jacky made appropriate stops along the way to let us catch our breath. At lunch, he checked our preferences before ordering a table of delicious food for us.

After lunch, we went on another hike to the Phra That cave where we saw beautiful rock formations. We were lucky to have Jacky as our guide as it was not easy to do both hikes on the same day but Jacky ensured we paced ourselves and took appropriate rest stops.

I would also like to commend our driver who drove carefully and safely.

Cat is very nice and good tour guide to bring us around and introduce much information about Thailand culture and tradition. She provided the honarable advice on the tour arrangement and very worth it . Want to stay longer time in Waterfalls. The restaurant for lunch is delicious and very full for 2 people . Highly recommended to my friends to join the tour.

A must do when visiting Bangkok, the 7 tiers of waterfalls get more and more unique and beautiful , and swimming in them with the fish nibbling on you is the best experience

Just P-E-R-F-E-C-T !

We booked the trip when we were still in Belgium and had all the information right away. Very simple to book.

The excursion took place on the 9th of November. The entire trip went super smoothly. We received a breakfast when we met our guide (Jacky - such an amazing and kind person). We directly went to the falls, on the way there Jacky provided us with lots of information on the region. He is so knowledgeable.

Then we hiked from the first to the 7th falls. We had plenty of time to take pictures ( Jacky also took pictures of us - so great to bring back memories). After the hike, we had a lovely lunch at one of the local restaurant. Super good food !

We ended the day with one last stop at the famous Bridge of Kanchanaburi before heading back to Bangkok.

We truly recommend doing this one day trip to get out of the city one day.

The service of Thai National Parks was just amazing.

Thank you for this memorable experience 🙏

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.
