Our guide explained everything properly, recited the rules regarding the elephants and the turtles, don't touch the latter as you could have sunscreen or insect repellent on your hands, with the elephants it was made clear that if they don't feel like it, they really don't feel like it and you should respect that, if you don't stick to it the tour will be cancelled, we thought that was great! We even prayed for our wishes in the temple, it was really great, the meal felt like a 5 course meal and was unbelievably delicious!!!!! There was also plenty of water! We would go back anytime

Everything was, in one word, great!! We were picked up on time from our hotel, had plenty of time to see turtles, had a nice ride on the bamboo boats, washed elephants after which we could shower and have a delicious lunch! Also saw a waterfall and the tsunami boat. Our guide was nice, chatty and explained everything clearly! They also handle the elephants very well! I have seen how happy the elephants are here and that makes me very happy too!!

Sai was fantastic and informative and kind. I didn’t realize we were going to a temple, so we stopped at a shop on the way so I could purchase long pants. Mr. Komson our driver was equally engaging. Thank you! I would highly recommend this tour. Be prepared to cry at the Tsunami memorial.

I enjoyed seeing the elephants up close and being able to interact with them. Also appreciated the care they were getting and the freedom they were allowed.

Great day out, rafting and elephant visit were the standout. Our guide Meow was very good, we now know alot more about Thailand than we did before!
