What people are saying about Nakhon Nayok Province

We had the best time!! Our guide Martin was excellent, knowledgeable, and very friendly. He took time to go over so many interesting facts in detail. We had a huge spread of delicious Thai food for lunch, but the best part was definitely the trek! The national park was so beautiful, and even though it was raining, we were stunned. My husband and I agreed it was the highlight of our Thailand trip! Definitely recommend this tour, with this company! Thank you so much for the amazing experience.

Jimmy was a fantastic tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable and had super sharp sense of where to find the animals. He helped us walk on the trickier parts of the path. The trip to/from the park were nicely airconditioned, a nice treat from humid Bangkok. We were lucky to see an elephant crossing the road right by us. We also saw water monitors, deer, a big green lizard, and a couple hornbills. Great trip!

Had an amazing day out with our fifteen month old, hiked for a few hours, saw the waterfalls (now low as it is the dry season), had a great lunch. Even in March, it's not too hot, and we saw lots of animals - monkeys, gibbons, hornbills, plus lots of traces of elephants.

The tour was amazing! Our guide Mr.Bond and driver made our trip memorable. The national park itself was gorgeous and the lunch was phenomenal! Would highly recommend.

Our guide and drive were wonderful! We had a great time exploring the park, it was really beautiful there.
