This was the best tour we arranged through Viator. Guide was very efficient and took us to many places other tours did not. Took us to one of the best restaurants we visited in our 2 weeks abroad. Elephant Park was clean, very friendly and was a blast!!

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.

Tour was great - all of the activities were in the same location so you were able to see/do a lot in a short amount of time. Price via Viator is a lot higher than you'd pay once you get to the island. Island Safari (name of the tour) was great, but you'd be better off booking once you get to the island.

Good entertainment and Good Value. Although some tours double up E.G. Elepnat and Monkey shows.

Was a good day full of good surprises extra bonus events added ad hoc. Hosting tour company and local staff are absolutely polite and pay extra effort for your comfort!! Swim at the falls, elephant ride, watching her eat Thai apples while riding was precious memory! The monkey training was interesting but felt the monkeys shouldn't have been in restraints.
