Great day out. Quite a long commut from Phuket (2hrs each way. Our driver was lovely and provided alot of information along the way). The tour and our guide (Sai) was great. We also had cooking included which was fun. Elephant feeding, watching them bathe, and play in the river was awesome. Up close experience whilst privacy for the elephants. Great amenities at location. Sweet waterfall swim to finish after a very hot day.

Seeing the elephants were amazing. They are so cared for. We fed them and watched them have a fun bath which was so lovely to watch. We learnt a lot about the elephants. Sai was our guide and she was also lovely and answered all questions. Just a reminder to bring mosquitoe spray especially in rain season.

I liked everything besides bamboo rafting where I saw some snakes and I nearly had a heart attack. The guide was very nice and helpful.

Fantastic service, experience and food ALL ROUND BRILLIANT!

Very nice activity. Very pleasant length and nice staff!
