Very highly reccommend this trip! This was the highlight of our 3week holiday in Asia. You get so much for your money, including entry fees and meal, and efficient booking. The tour operator called our hotel the previous evening to confirm pick up time. The tours are in small groups so feel very personal, the park is far away but the air conditioned coach stops regularly to visit different attractions. Our tour guide Gary was extremely friendly and spoke good English, pointing things out while we were travelling. The first stop was at a morning market which we found fascinating, Gary talked to us in detail about the various produce being sold. Next we stopped at a farm for an ox cart ride which was a brilliant experience, especially getting to wear crazy hats! Then the tour went on into Khao Yai where we went on a short trek into the jungle to a beautiful waterfall, where we descended some extremely steep steps. Don't go down if you are unfit as it is very hard getting back up and our trip was held up here by an attention seeking Australian who was demanding an ambulance to help her get up the steps! Even though she was clearly just lazy Gary was brilliant and tried his best to get her everything she wanted. We drove to a hotel in the jungle where a lovely meal was provided, including fresh fruit from the morning market. Then the highlight of the day; the elephant ride was a once in a lifetime experience! Starting off on a seat, the guides let you ride on it's neck if you choose to, and ours took tens of photos for us. The elephants are so friendly and feeding them after the ride was lovely!
