I liked it a lot, it was a relaxed, leisure trip, which included a small concert and dinner. The elephants were always willing to eat a banana or two, the guides were nice and friendly, willing to accept a small tip :
This was the absolute worst experience Ive ever paid for, too start we were almost 3 hours late getting too the Island and when I asked for a reason I pretty much got a grunt and the person walked away, we get to the Island and we are dumped off the back of the boat into 3 feet of surf while being barked at too hurry up and get off, Then our so called guide disappears with out leaving us with ant kind of information about when and where we are suppose to go for our Sea food lunch or what time the Boat returns back to the main land, my wife and I fended for our self for lunch and pretty much stayed local to the area where we were dropped off so we would not miss the return boat since we had no idea when it would leave, this place was so over crowded with people and boats there was no way possible too snorkel, and the roped off area for swimming was a joke, all day long we were bothered by locals trying too sell you something and we had to pay for anything and everything except for oxygen, to sit in a chair cost 100 Baht, to use a restroom was 50 Baht, to shower off after being in the sea water was 50 Bath... So our guide shows up just before 3 and starts barking at everyone too hurry up and get on the boat and the only thing I could think of is thank god this night mare is almost over, no I was wrong, we get back too shore too be left standing in the heat for nearly 2 hours waiting for our return transportation too our Hotel while the people running this trip was busy trying to sell pictures of everyone on the boat, end up getting put on a open air Tok Tok truck instead of a nice A/C van like our morning pickup, And Thanks my Wife And I Had an Awesome Honeymoon adventure experience, Yeah Right... can I submit a minus star rating??..
It was the worst trip that I have ever paid for. I ended up leaving the group and taxi the ferry back to the mainland. Anyone who is thinking about this, don't do it. The next day I found a wonderful snorkeling / dive trip through my hotel, Holiday Inn. It was perfect.
Very busy because of Chinese New year over flow of boats and buses...and gobs of others visiting island--it was very hectic and the people were asking questions and the manager was doing best to get results --food was late because of some mix-up---on way back we took ferry. ferry dock, easy to get to---and did rent motorcycle to take to other side where monkeys were in somewhat wild area with a steep climb. Overall great booking convenience because not everyone Bankkok and Pattayatakes credit cards--Please do homework, take your Visa Master card and opted for others--it was a mistake--thank you Viator ---saved the day with easy access to click and pay..
It was a bit disorganised with a stop off for people to go para-sailing, we were told we were stopping there for 15 minutes but it ended up being close to an hour. Could've been organised a lot better.
Coral is beautiful but Viator and his agency was crazily terrible. It was not anything like we were enjoying our trip but we were forced to follow tour guide's order and be a good prey for him to earn more money at any cost. Tour guide was rude and not friendly, lunch was not like something which human can eat. Good bye Viator, forever!
Travelled with our kids 7 and 9 who had a good time, they loved the Elephant and Ox Cart rides, it was great there were umbrellas to use as shade as it was really hot. The lunch was really nice with lots of variety,
The food in the package was tastless.and the karon beach is so pack of people.
a brilliant half day out while in pattaya, was picked up from my hotel on time, then driven to the elephant park
once there we were given a 30 minute ride on a elephant, while feeding him
once the elephant trek was finished we were told some interesting facts about elephants, it was then on th a small jungle trek , where the guide tells you how to survive in the jungle
then we had a small raft ride down a lake, then a 30 minute ox and cart ride, finished by a magnificent meal
i would recommend this to anyone while in pattaya
a fantastic cabaret show, the show itself was amazing, and some great costumes, after the show there are photo opportunities with the cast, the hotel pick up and drop off was first class, driver picked me up on time and was waiting for me after the show
good clean fun for all the family, i would recommend this cabaret show while in pattaya
Doing what: Tiffany's Cabaret Show in Pattaya
We booked elephant half-day tour at evening, the weather wasn't too hot and the sunset was really beutiful and nature calm when it was getting dark. Tour guide spoke good english and he had good sense of humor. I don't have any children, but I noticed how good they took care of kids. Food was delicious, but I was disapointted because fooddrinks didn't included in the price. I didn't like the way how elephant and buffalo riders was asking for some tip. I didn't feel anykind of hurry during the tour and it was really well organized.
Excellent tour and the guide was just awesome.
I have mixed feelings about this trip. The trip itself was good and the people who put it on do a good job overall. We did enjoy most of it. However, they need to clean-up some of their employees. My wife and I on the elephant ride had a driver that was less than honest. He kept taking his elephant off the path and into thicket, ponds, etc. At one point he broke away from the normal path, ran the elephant into a small lake. The water level got up almost to our shoes. Then he stops the elephant in the middle of the lake and turns around and starts to sell us cheap trinkets for high prices. My wife does not swim and I just came off of heart surgery and neither of us could have swam safely to the shore if he chose to have the elephant go deeper. We were intimidated to buy a cheap piece of plastic for 300 Baht. When I gave him a 500 Baht note he became upset because I wanted change. Imagine that! He kept saying the change was his tip. I know enough Thai to respond "no way." My son was on another elephant and experienced a good ride. I guess we just had a bad luck of the draw. Please watch your employees. They could ruin your good business.
This is a trip I shouldn't have joined. Not suitable for an elderly person like me. I am 67 years old. All rides viz. parachuting, diving, banana boat ride are not suitable for me. The journey via speed boat, not very comfortable. I ended up just at the beach sitting on the chair watching the activities around me. I could have just spent the same at the beach at Beach front along Beach road doing the same without any charge. I put up at Holiday Inn hotel, facing the beach.
Was good, the guide was also good, but the tour could be more comprehensive
Meh. The Island was packed with tourists from India. It wasn't very private at all. They didn't serve us a lunch. Also, we had to wait at this dock thing in the middle of the sea for one hour so other people could go parasailing even though we didn't sign up for it. Seemed quite disorganized to me. I wouldn't recommend. Did take a few good snapshots though.
A bit disappointing at the end. I was left on island. Please refer to email sent in yesterday ref: 6428494 in conjunction with Elephant Trek which was fantastic. Thanks. Pat (Australia)
On the way to Koh Larn we first stopped off at a sea platform to see if anyone wanted to do paragliding we then stopped off at a second platform to see if anyone wanted to to do sea walking, by the time we arrived at Koh Larn we only had 90 minutes until lunch and then 55 minutes after lunch before we left stopping off again on the way back to see if anyone wanted to go paragliding again !!! None of these additional stops were mentioned on the trip details.
