We went here in August and had an amazing day. Jammed packed with well organised activities. Our driver spoke excellent English and was more than helpful and happy to talk to us about living in Thailand. Although people we met were welcoming. The elephant encounter really touched our hearts. They are well cared for here and being able give them a mud bath was such a precious experience. This memory is mine forever! We would definitely book again.

The whole experience was amazing !! The guide was very informative and friendly and the interactions with the elephants was unforgettable. From feeding them to washing them the trip was a once in a lifetime experience. I cannot recommend this trip enough and would love to return. Most importantly the elephants on this trip are well cared for and healthy !!
