What people are saying about Khlong Sok

We had the tour with Jum and her team (driver and German speaking guide). We were picked up on time in a comfortable minibus. At the first stop in Takua Pa we had time to explore a typical Thai market without "tourist junk". Then we went to the Thongsuk Elephant Park, where we were allowed to take care of 2 elephants with 6 people. Food preparation, feeding, mud bath and subsequent cleaning in the river were unforgettable highlights that the guides captured with our cameras. This was followed by a delicious and extensive lunch. Well strengthened we went to the bamboo raft trip. Definitely a "must do"! Let yourself be surprised by the coffee break in the "Jungle Starbucks". On the way home we visited the monkey temple and a great viewpoint. In a friendly, happy atmosphere, we never had the feeling of being "worked off". We can definitely recommend this boozy tour even in rainy weather.

Oat and Ding were fabulous. We had an amazing day! The market was most interesting. Oat bought some mango and rose apple for us to try. The elephant sanctuary was so much fun. Feeding, mudding, bathing, walking. Then off to the restaurant where we made Tom Yum soup and ate enough for a week! We felt full and sleepy for our bamboo raft ride. The coffee from bamboo cups woke us up. Overall a perfect day

The tour was very nice. My girlfriend was a little skeptical beforehand because you hear a lot about animal abuse at the elephant attractions in tourist areas, but you could see that the animals are treated really well there. Many elephants otherwise often have tattered ears from the hooks their "trainers" use. This was not the case here. All the animals looked healthy and well fed.

Was one of the best days on vacation! We can only recommend the tour to everyone :)

The activities were nice and well executed. Great guide.
