It was a wonderful day with unbelievably great impressions and experiences. The transport with pick-up and at the hotel was super comfortable and everything was explained to us. 100% recommended and everyone who is on holiday in Khao Lak should go on this trip. Bathing with the elephants was the absolute highlight and it was simply fantastic to be able to get so close to these animals. Simply beautiful.

Amazing trip lovely guide who was very in formative and down to earth. Lunch was included which was very tasty and plentiful. The tours included rafting lots of opportunities to see wildlife a snakes and pythons in the trees. The turtle conservation and tsunami memorial were beautiful and the waterfall was great to cool off! Highly recommend this trip 😁

All in all it was a wonderful trip, we were a small group of 4 adults and 3 children and an older couple. I can absolutely recommend this trip with a clear conscience. Well, the price is debatable, it could be a lot less for children, but it's a vacation and you're happy to do it.

An exceptional guide with very very very understandable English! The visit with the elephants is just incredible 😍 It clearly allows you to create a bond with the elephant... We took the private tour and we absolutely don't regret it even if it's slightly more expensive

Amazing and unmissable, Martha our guide and driver was very pleasant and professional, we were very lucky with the weather. Don't hesitate, go for it.
