This tour was great, but our tour guide Peter was even better. He gave us a better understanding about Thailand that you don't read in books. I would go on this tour again only if Peter was our guide.

Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. He cared about his job. I am an instructor of wilderness medicine subjects at a university in the USA and really appreciated his knowledge of the environment that we were in. I highly recommend this trip.

It was the highlight of our Thailand triop.
We had an excellent tour guide---THE FAMOUS Peter lol. He made this tour perfect and enjoyable.
Love the food, oxcart ride, the waterfall, the wild monkey and of course the elephant ride.
The whole package was great value for money.

Thumbs up! A must-join tour in Bangkok. The tour was so pleasurable and memorable largely because we had an outstanding tour guide, Peter, who treated us like his good friends. He explained everything very clearly, and was always conscientious in making us comfortable (such as cold towels and plentiful cold bottled water). He treated us with various local specialty food items (such as coconut water, fried banana and fried sweet potato) as we went through the local market. He helped us to take pictures in the best locations. The elephant ride was awesome, and the lunch in the farm was superb.

SUPER FUN TRIP! Guide Peter was very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. After the ox cart ride we were all very hot and sweaty and the guide immediately offered us some cold tissue and water, which was really nice. This was also the case for the waterfall and elephant ride. The highlight of the trip has got to be the elephant ride. You do get to sit on the neck, which I would highly recommend you to do so as well. We reached bangkok around 5pm, leaving us ample opportunity to continue shopping around the city. This trip is definitely highly recommended, and the guide will NOT bring you to buy anything at all!

The local market was certainly different from anything back home. Very authentic. The lunch at the farm house from the purchases that our guide made at the market was fantastic and the owner of the farm was such a pleasant and loving woman. The waterfalls walk was a challenge for some in the group to climb back up the many stairs, but certainly was a beautiful falls. The highlight of the day was certainly the elephants. It was great fun to feed them and they loved to be fed right into their tonques. Once on the elephants you go about 10 minutes through jungle, another five or ten through a river and the best part is when the guide gets you to get on their neck and out of the seat to take your picture and then he leaves and just runs around taking your picture as the elephant picks its own way through the jungle. Many great pictures and such a great time!

This was a lot of fun. Peter was our guide. He spoke excellent english, was very knowledgeable and helpful. He offered to help us see other stuff in bangkok and even chiang mai, where we were headed. Part of the fun was listening to him talk about anything we asked concerning thailand. Reasonable price and they pick you up from the hotel, so no issues lining up transit from A to B to C etc. That is more of an issue than we expected, in part because it's hard to locate stations and tickets online, and locals at the stations don't always speak english. Also they hardly ever understand western pronunciation of the transliterated terms and can't always read transliterated addresses (eg one book i have says "english" is "ing-grit" in thai, but the thais i asked didn't understand "ing-grit" -- they pronounce it "ahn-keet". Also a cab driver in bangkok didn't recognize "Chatuchak" on an address i had written).

Most memorable moments of the trip:
1) on the drive out of the park, we saw wild monkeys crossing the road and hopping down from the trees.
2) on the elephant ride, the trainer hopped off, let us sit on the elephant's neck, and walked ahead singing.

Pick up on time. Very nice driver and tour guide. First stop was at the market (outside Bangkok) where we could see so many new fruits and vegetables (and also meat - "Mickey Mouse" from jungle). At this market our tour guide bought mangosteens for us as a dessert after lunch. Next stop was at some private ranch where we watched (and participated a little) how is thai food cooked. Then we had an amazing lunch (one of the best meels I had in Thailand) and mangosteens as a dessert (wow - awesome fruit!!!). Next stop was at the waterfall. Nice walk to it through the jungle and very nice waterfall. Last stop was at a hotel resort with elephants. This elephant safari is (as this whole tour) kind of touristy but much better then I've seen on Koh Samui island. It was cca 30 minute ride on an elephant, including a walk in a river. In the end our "elephant driver" got off and we could try sitting on the elephant's head while the driver took our pictures and video.

We had so much fun. The driver picked us up at our hotel perfectly on time, along the way we picked up one other couple and we drove to the fruit market about 45 minutes away. After that, ox ride and a great lunch outdoors, our tour guide Peter was very nice. LAst stop was the water fall and elephant ride, which was an amazing experience!! Thank you Peter :-)
