The tour of the elephant sanctuary was fantastic. It was very informative and the tour guide that took us there Ai was great and went out of his way to show us different things along the way. He was very helpful and accommodating which made the tour so much more enjoyable. The guide at the sanctuary was also great and although not advertised if the conditions are right you are actually able to get into the river and bath the baby elepbhants. The experince was very rewarding and i would reccommend the tour to anyone.

If you manage to get Lo as your tour guide - you are lucky! He is fantastic and ran a great day for us. The Elephant Sanctuary was great, we got to feed the elephants and you can bathe with them if you wish.
Definitely worth getting out of KL to visit the elephant sanctuary and deerland.

We were picked up at our hotel right on time. We were the only people on the tour so we had a wonderful time with our tour leader (sorry, forgot his name) who could not do enough to make sure we had a wonderful experience. Feeding the deer and looking at the other animals in the private zoo was fun but the elephant sanctuary was great. The video shown to visitors showing the plight of these wonderful animals is very moving. Getting close and hand feeding the elephants is an amazing experience and watching the older elephants have their play time in the river was great fun. I went in the river with the young elephant and it was fantastic to be able to help bath it. I don't know who got the wettest - the elephans of the visitors! all in all a terrific experience, highly recommended and many thanks to our tour guide for making our day so memorable.

We were not able to get near the Elephant due to flooding. It rained a lot weeks before our arrival in Kuala Lumpur but we have a good time touring the outskirts of the city. Our guide was so nice to compensate what we miss in the Elephant Sanctuary by stopping on some interesting veiw points and one of those point was with the local monkeys. We have a good pics of them. Nexr rime we plan to ask for Devva as our guide. He sure knows how to make a trip interesting. Thank you,
Nerissa and John

Private Tour guide was fantastic. Told me so much, paid for everything. He made the trip worth it.
Elephant sanctuary does not let you ride on the elephants anymore which is a let down. But the forest fruits and "packed lunch" which was street food were superb!!

The elephant sanctuary was fun, but the best part of the trip was our tour guide, who made sure we had everything we needed to really enjoy our day. He also gave us so much information on Malaysia we really felt we knew the place. Fantastic service, first class. Thank you !

I was very impressed with the tour, and especially the friendly tour guide Ei. He showed me many places and did not hesitate to tell the truth. Since the tour can be weather dependence, Ei was fun and honest
It was beyond awesome. I would strongly recommended to anyone.

We had a wonderful day. Our tour guide Ai was friendly and entertaining. He gave us lots of local information and made our day special. The elephants were beautiful. We got to swim with them which was the highlight of our tour. Our guide made the drive and other stops enjoyable. This tour is a must.

This was an interesting day although I was surprised that there were so many people feeding and riding the elephants given the price - I had the impression it would be rather more exclusive. However the day was absolutely made by our guide Che Ai who was delightful. He was informative about the sanctuary but also answered all questions about language, road signs, education, health care, taxation and anything else we asked about Malaysia. He has a wonderful sense of humour and introduced us to some new experiences - stopping at roadside stalls so we could sample some new fruits. Especially durian! We felt that we were in ver safe hands - he is an asset to you.
