    Wonderful trip.
    Amy is great- she went over and above providing commentary on the bus en route. She even handed out refreshments, local fried bananas to try. Very careful and protective of the group.
    Visits very interesting. Both railway and floating markets worth seeing. Highly recommend this,

    Tee picked us up at the hotel at the designated time. He was very personable and spoke English well. He explained about what was going to happen during the day so we would be prepared. The experience was like nothing I've ever done before. We rode into the market by train. The tourists were lined up along the way. I was photographing them and they were photographing me. The market was amazing to see. All the food products as the locals buy them. From there we went on to the floating market. Again Tee enlightened us as to what was going to happen and also told us a lot about Thai culture. The floating market was another experience that I will never forget. All in all it was a tremendously enjoyable day. I highly recommend this trip with this company. While other tour groups bring you to the market to see the train, we rode into the market on the train and watched from the station as it left and they put the market back together again.

    The guide was a nice guy and spoke English very well. The tour is exactly as it is described. They take you to a railway point where you take the train in order to get to the station on the train. Then you have a few minutes to walk along the train market (about 10-15min). After that you can see the train leaving the station but this time from the market. It's nice to have both points of view: from and down the train. Then they take you to the floating market, one part by van and the rest by boat (but just to get there). There you have some time to walk along the floating market. If you want to tour ir by boat it is not included, you'll have to pay a ticket which is not expensive. I recommend taking this tour, was a nice experience.

    What wonderful day from our pick up to drop off. Our guide Amy was informative and professional explaining in detail all the sights and sounds we encountered she also ensured that we got the best views and service at all the locations visited. I thoroughly recommend this trip.

    Pick-up on time. Great tour guide and driver. Only one suggestion is to have more time on the train than floating market.

    An awesome way to spend the day with excellent Historic information. Experiencing the floating market and train ride was pretty sweet. Our guide was very pleasant and super funny. Felt really comfortable from the very start.

    Great trip. Very hectic and lots of activity, but our hotel pickup was as advertised and everything about the out went as advertised- thanks to Sara, our guide

    It was a nice experience, well organised. Everything was delivered as promised, plus we had a nice tour lady (Pace!?) who was taking super care of us: spontaneously she both (on her expense!!!) fingers food for all group (10people). Also she was explaining many things about Thai culture and markets.
    Very good experience, recommended

    The train ride was good but u cannot see much actually on the train. The market off the train along the tracks is integrating. So many tourists couldn't really enjoy the experience

    This tour coupled 2 main attractions in one morning. It was very convenient and not rigid. The only downside was that we got to the floating market near noon and the big motorboats were crowding the place with their huge engines and exhaust smoke.
