The tour guide was awesome, and it was a great experience. We didn't stop any pit stops for commission buy. Our group was tiny and the whole trip was the best experience in Thailand.

This was a fantastic day, and we managed to do so much in the time that we had - the elephant ride was the absolute highlight. The guide was very warm and knowledgeable and was able to give us a lot of background to every one of our activities. Really recommend this trip, such a fantastic way to spend a day away from the pollution and noise of Bangkok.

Our guide was beyond excellent! From the hotel pick up to hotel drop off, our family enjoyed the whole day. This tour was the highlight of our trip. My two girls (8 and 20) had the time of their life. The local markets were both full of sights and smells! The ox cart ride and local lunch was very enjoyable but the elephant ride through the jungle and river was beyond compare. The elephants seemed well cared for and the mahouts were friendly and caring. A definite repeat experience!

This tour was excellent, from the ox-cart ride to the waterfall, the traditional thai lunch cooked fresh in front of us, which was delicious and of course the elephant ride, which we were able to ride on the elephants neck as well as the seat, our group only had one other couple in it for the day, our guide was very knowledgeable, great day!

Four thumbs way up!!! (There were two of us) The entire trip was great from start to finish. They picked us up from our hotel in a nice SUV and whisked us out of Bangkok. The guide was friendly and informative throughout the trip, and the park was beautiful from waterfall to wild elephant and monkeys.

This was a good tour. Lunch was delicious and the elephant ride was an amazing experience. My only negative is that the trip is described as being 9 hours, it's not, it's 13 hours. We were picked up at 7am and did not get back to the hotel until 8.15am. We had lunch very early at 11.00am so that's a VERY LONG day. We had plans for the evening after the trip which we had to cancel.
If the trip organisers cut out the Ox Cart ride and the local market visit (which to be honest was a whistle-stop tour rather than an actual exploration of the market) the trip could be done in a few hours less.

Great experience riding elephants. Great waste of time seeing the dried-up waterfall. The guide knew that
The waterfall was dried up.
the Waterfall was dried-up and it was a waste of time and energy walking a great distance to see nothing.

Great experience! Refreshing break from Bangkok and very informative and fun. Both my boyfriend and I were under the weather the day we went but the guide went out of his way to stop and get us water and take breaks when needed. Definitely would recommend!

Peter was an excellent guide. He was informative on the drive up to Nakhon Nayok. The market there was great...very manageable compared to the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. Tons of photo ops with all of the fruits and vegetables and spices and meats; best of all was the smiles of the vendors. Definitely a highlight of the entire trip. The lunch at the farm was delicious. Much fun watching lunch being made for us and I'll say it again...it was so good! The oxcart ride was ok...a little bumpy which I probably should have expected. The hike to the waterfall in the national park was a nice opportunity to see some different scenery. Although the waterfall wasn't running anywhere near full capacity, the walk to the falls was pretty and got a good workout on the stairs coming back. The monkeys at one of the viewpoints were fun to watch. The elephant ride was enjoyable but I wasn't aware of how the elephants are trained so I would have been content to just feed the elephant and maybe help wash it or something. I'm not judging the locals as it's not for me to dictate how they make a living but for me personally, I would have been content to just be near the elephant without the ride. Overall, Peter did a great job and the daytrip was worth every penny.

Green was the best tour guide! We had such a great time and it was primarily because of her and how she kept us entertained from early morning to late in the evening. Everything we did on the tour was terrific -- the ox ride was fun, the lunch terrific, the waterfall great, and the elephant ride something you'll always remember. As two 30 year old professionals from the USA, we couldn't recommend this tour any more!
