★★★★★★★★★★

Fantastic trip, would thoroughly recommend Chain as a great local (Kanchanaburi) guide.

Chain picked me up on time in Bangkok, and took me across to Kanchanaburi. As a local to this town, he knew all the places to go, and we even jumped onto his bicycles to get a real feel for the town!

A great day out with Kachain! Somber morning taking in the sight of the railway, followed by a fun afternoon with the elephants!

Kachain knows his town, and he's a super friendly guy who is passionate about his work.
