This was the most amazing experience. Got picked and had our own tour guide for the 4 of us. Elephant show excellent make sure you have small change for tips. Best of all was getting photo taken with 2 tigers for approx £2.50 would recommend this trip
A great chance to get up close and personal with elephhants. The handlers encourage you to touch and approach the elephants, even holding their trunks and feeding them. The best part of this trip was the elephant ride along a well maintained, gardened path (costs an additional $500 Baht). They take lots of pictures and it was a unique experience. Keep lots of $20 Baht bills (about 50cents US)handy as the handlers ask for tips. I think of it as helping to support the elephants. We saw at least 30 different elephants. You can even touch, feed, and interact with the baby elephants. So cute! Only an hour's ride from Bangkok city. Again, a wonderful tour guide who answered our many questions about Bangkok.
This tour was AWESOME- The guide was professional and enthusiastic, and really was a highlight of my trip!
THE TOUR WAS GREAT. I HAD BEEN TO THE PARK BEFORE. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE WAS THAT I FELT WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WAITING FOR THE GUIDE . WE WERE READY TO MOVE ONTO THE NEXT THING and WE WERE LEFT THERE WAITING FOR HIM TO CATCH UP. STILL, IT WAS A GREAT DAY and THEY DIDN'T TRY TO GET US TO GO TO A GEM FACTORY WHICH IS A BONUS!!
The guide and driver were courteous and professional. The facility was excellent. I had visited 5 years ago, and enjoyed my experience just as much the second time around. I especially liked the elephant show, as it included history of the elephant in Thailand. The show is beautiful, exciting, and educational. The crocodile show is fun and entertaining. Additional opportunities are available for visitors to wander around and see baby elephants and crocodiles and the beautiful orchids. One very pleasant thing about this trip is that we were not taken to additonal places that we had not requested and were not pressured to purchase souveniers.
It was very interesting at the zoo. The animals were very well trained. Elephants kicking goals was fun. I like the history battle with Thailand versus Burma. Go Thai. The crocodile show was crazy. Sliding up to them and even putting an arm down the throat. Entertaining.
What a lovely experience. Great elephant show, very good way to experience Thailand. Kids will love this.
It was nice. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The park is awesome. We did not have enough time to see the tigers and take pictures and therefore we gave a 4 star rating.
Certainly a great tour. Very special day for sure - would recommend to anyone especially if they love elephants and tigers. Guide was very helpful as well.
The elephants and their handlers are amazing. Didn't like the crocodile show though. Loved having my photo taken with the tigers.
These animals are amazing and appeared to be well looked after - I hope so. Be prepared to tip though, including the elephant you have just riden!
Our transport was late, therefore we got to the venue as the elephant show was about to start. So we were hurriedly shepherded into the arena. But the elephant show was great (as well as the crocodile show). The highlight of course was the ride around the park on an elephant. Delightful!
