Fantastic organisation. It is so nice to have an air-conditioned vehicle to taxi you from place to place. Essential Travel provided us with two guides who both worked diligently to make our trip as comfortable and as interesting as possible. Our one problem was with understanding our second guide, whose English was heavily accented and difficult to follow. It took great concentration to listen and so we found that rather tiring. This was unfortunate as the guide was very willing and concerned for our comfort.
The organisation was superb and went flawlessly. We could relax and concentrate on the holiday and not worry about getting from place to place. Our favourite part of the tour was during our stay at Kanchanaburi where we were able to explore the National Parks (e.g. Erawan Falls) and the scenic railway trip and Hellfire Pass. The hotels were fantastic too.
