Fabulous e is the only way I can describe this trip, to be snuggled by a baby elephant is indescribable !! This is definitely a trip worth going on, we would have liked to ave done the whole day trip but my husband has had major surgery, so we thought tis was second best.... It wasn't, it was an amazing experience.

we were picked up on time in a van with 5 other people. we loved the small group experience. the elephants were marvelous and our hour long treck on top of one in the jungle was amazing. we had the added bonus of going to the butterfly farm, and one of the other couples wanted to go to tiger kingdom, so our tour guide took us, and while we didn't get down in the cages with the tigers, my husband and I did take many pictures of others doing that. I also had the chance to have a fish pedicure., which was fun, but I don't ever need to repeat. the tour, however was fabulous, and the company and guide were excellent. we used them again the next day to go to several local places and had a wonderful time.

Absolutley amazing show. Highlight of our trip to thialand, we were also given a chance to take a 1 hour elephant ride had to pay extra which we did and I would recommend to anyone also. Only downside was we felt we were rushed out afterwards without being able to buy soverniers, only to be taken to a "gift shop" down the road some way which was just overpriced market stuff not related to the elephant camp..

This was the very best one of our 7 tours. Elephants painting were mind boggling. No one believes us except that we have the photos to prove it and we were also there to experience it.

Very fun half day trip to the elephant camp to see the elephants perform. We told the guide we really wanted to ride elephants, so they took us to another site where elephants were available to ride. It was great!
