This is One of the REALLY MUST DO trips when visiting Bangkok. EVERY PART of the experience was most acceptable, The GUIDES and Agents were all there to give the trip a "personal" touch. This was much appreciated.Leslie Armstrong

This is a good fit for first time visitor of Thailand. I highly recommend the content of the tour elephant show and cultural presentation. Both were spectacular. I was immensely impressed by the cultural aspects. It was well presented and well-planned. On the other hand, the tour guide, though she spoke English, was not of great help at all. All she did was take me to the ticket booth, and I was practically on my own until the presentation. It turned out well though so I could have my personal time to explore the garden. The souvenir shops inside the garden were of good value. I loved the elephant show. Very entertaining! The hotel pick up and drop off worked well. Thailand is beautiful! Great people, great experience.

We could have spent a lot longer here. The show was a very good way of finding out about Thai life. The costumes were beautiful and the elephant show was charming. The gift shops were full of authentic items made locally.

A tour definitely not to miss. It was a wonderful insight into Thai culture. The elephant ride was spectacular and we enjoyed the elephant performance immensely. Traffic was very congested on the way home.

We were advised upon booking that due to the flooding the elephant had not yet returned to the village. We hoped maybe it may return during the ten days before we actually went, but it had not. However the elephant was not the only reason to visit the village, and their are plenty more things to do and see. The rose gardens are beautiful and pleasant to walk around, so close to the river. The show was quite good. It was inside. They gave us clothes as we entered which were chilled and moistened with lemon water - keep you cool and keep off the mossies. Whilst walking around the village you can see how silk is made from the worms to the weaving of the cloth, you can purchase items from the shop, you can watch umbrella/parasol painting, hear tradtional music, have your photo with ladies in tradtional costume or with an albino reticulated python. You must tip if you take a photo, the ladies in costume happily took 10Baht per photo, the snake handler had a card pinned to him (50Baht) but we took 5/6 photos for that. Great tour as a general overview of Thai life and culture.

The elephants and the culture show was nice. Worth the money because to get there on your own would be an expensive taxi ride.

We were picked up at our hotel at the time stated when we confirmed the trip. The trip was a bit rushed but well worth seeing, a very beautiful place.

A great tour, although the tour guide doesn't actually show you around the Rose Gardens, she basically pays for the ticket and tells you what time to meet her. The elephants look a bit worn out, but we are Australians and used to seeing very well kept after animals in captivity so i don't know how the animals are treated here. Nonetheless, the show was good, and so was the cultural show. It gave a great perspective into thai culture. A must see!
