Well organized and pleasant, and worth the early morning departure. The guide was excellent, and made sure that everything was taken care of at all times. The tour packed a lot into the day, but it never felt rushed. The only complaint was the traffic returning in the evening, but that is beyond anybody's control. I do appreciate that the guide told us that it would save an hour to just take the Skytrain back to our hotel, rather than waiting an extra hour in the van. All told, well worth the time and money.
We had a super day the bus was comfortable the driver and the guide T were fantastic ,pity about the traffic back to Bangkok but it was Friday tea time and that is out of your control so thank you for a day that will stay with us forever.
Highly recommended, it was a refreshing tour, full of surprises and delightful sceneries. Was amazed by the hugeness of the elephants, enjoyed the ride!
This was an awesome day! Our tour guide was really helpful, food was delicious. I like how they take you to a Thai house/farm and they show you how to make some of the food. It was a cooking lesson and yummy lunch all in one. The view of the waterfall was beautiful, quite a bit of walking especially up and down the stairs so be prepared. The elephants was the cap of it all, my favorite part. This tour is a must when you're in Bangkok.
My friend and I really loved the experience taking this package. The opportunity to be in close proximity with the Khao Yai Park waterfall took my breath away...it was simply beautiful. And of course the chance to ride an elephant and sitting on its neck directly giving the elephant instructions to move...wow wow and wow.
How was it??????,, Fantastic!!!!!!!!,, from the time we were picked up ,till we were dropped off back at our hotel, Our Guide was Peter and he was excellent,, very informative and very funny, kept us entertained all day long, First main stop was a small market where he explained about all the different fruits and veges ,, etc, and we got to taste and pick what we liked,, then onto a small local farm and an ox cart ride, after that we went back to the farmers house and they showed us how they cooked the food and that was our lunch,, very tasty,, and the farmer and his wife were just lovely,, from there it was onto a waterfall ,which was a bit of a hike down to see it , but well worth it if you are fit enough,, (not recommended if you are not fit),, after that it was on to the Elephant trekking which was the highlight of the day,, sitting on the back for the first part, through jungle and creeks, then got to sit on the Elephants head to finish of the ride while the Mahout took loads of pictures.. all in all a great day out,, highly recommended,, thanks guys , 10 OUT OF 10
Excellent tour with insights to life on farms, but the highlight was the elephant ride and being able to "drive" the elephant whilst sitting on its neck
A very enjoyable day which provided the opportunity to experience a larger slice of Thai culture and the countryside. We got to interact with vegetable, flower, fruit and fish venders, taste some of their wares at a local street market. Then moved on to have a short ride in an oxcart on a rice farm. Venturing further into the countryside we visited the Haew Narok waterfall after an interesting walk through a rainforest. We saw lots of monkeys, and finally rode our elephants and had a delicious Thai lunch.
It was a full day of fun and excitement! Peter was an excellent guide with his humor and assistance,
Awesome, awesome, awesome! In spite of the high heat and humidity it was a very enjoyable and welcomed change of scenery from the city life. At the first stop, the waterfall, be prepared for the activity of your life......walking up and down steps made for minuscule feet. The down wasn't bad, but the up was torturing, lol; next was lunch where the tours members cooked their own Thai delicacies which was followed by the elephant ride. This was the best part of the trip......worth every penny. The tour guide certainly sealed the deal.
Great day out, really enjoyed it, guide was excellent and the elephant ride was brilliant
