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.
Amazing show by the elephants although I would have liked to get more comments about the training method.
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.
The tour guide was very friendly and informative and we enjoyed the morning very much. The elephant ride was brilliant and was a highlight of our holiday. However we were disappointed that although paying for this tour everything involved extra costs even having to pay to go to the tribal village.
The programme was OK, but the time at the orchid farm was very short. The guide's knowledge was poor.
Clever elephant tricks, including soccer, dart throwing, and painting. We were one of few that paid extra for a worthwhile elephant ride. We also bought 3 elephant paintings of leafy, flowering branches, that are very good. We hope to improve on our total outlay of 3,000BHT when we sell them on eBay! What made it a great day was a bonus visit to a long-neck women tribal village, not far from the elephant camp.
Nothing spectacular but it was an enjoyable half day trip out. Elephant ride was really good but the elephant show wasn't for everyone, a bit like a circus but i enjoyed it, my partner didn't and our 2 year old son got very bored after a while. Elephants painting was good to watch and wanted to buy one of the paintings but they were expensive for a good one so unfortunately i didn't buy one.
