Awesome experience!!! Got more than I was expecting, including mid morning fruit, refreshment and lunch. Visitors are encouraged to touch and pat the elephants and monkeys. They encourage tipping to buy fruit for the animals which you can feed them, which also helps ensure the animals eat well. The guide was excellent and was responsible for the small group for the entire day, spoke clearly and was very friendly and happy to provide comphrehensive insights into the animals, sights and answer your questions. The animal experience was amazing. We even stopped to see tigers. Take some extra baht for photos, tips, tigers. Overall, excellent value.
