Great tour. Don't forget your swimmers!!! Thoroughly enjoyed tour and would recommend.
We had a nice guide which made a big difference as we had had some bad experiences on other trips. This guide actually stayed during our meal and ate with us, he also included drinks, whereas on all other trips the guide tells you to buy your own,. He also provided different fruits for us to try and we felt he was interested and eager to make the trip enjoyable for us. He was attentive and gave good and interesting commentary throughout the trip. The elephants were fun, we did not know from details on viator site that it included bathing with the elephants so had not brought a towel or change of clothes. However, guide really helpfu,l supplied paper towels and in heat quickly dried off. One of the better KL trips and very educational-great trip for kids!
Fabulous trip - excellent guide. Interesting to see the countryside. Elephants were enchanting though getting in the river with them would surely be a brave and dubious thing to do. Great experience
Worth the trip, although is a long drive there. Thanks Reno
The drive is loooooong. But once you get to the sanctuary, you'll find the experience worthwhile. It was very fun and educational to learn about and interact with the elephants. The part with the aboriginal settlement feels tacked-on.
A very well organised and interesting tour. We were able to get close to the elephants and, although we did not go into the river to wash the elephants, we thoroughly enjoyed watching the antics of those who did. The guide was friendly and informative and the sanctuary was well run. They could do with a new copy of the film. Also could have done without the visit to the pewter factory, although our guide was at pains to point out that we should not feel pressured to buy.
A fantastic experience, our guide was a lovely friendly informative man. The sanctuary it's self was well maintained, a really nice set up. Feeding and watching the elephants being bathed was absolutely awesome, like some I wasn't game to get in the river with them. Overall, a great tour.
Cheaper than other tours. The Tour only really covered bathing, feeding and viewing the elephants as you could as normal public. Nothing special. The aboriginal settlement is really just a quick stop off before the Elephant sanctuary. Lunch is included but it very small and simple. We brought extra food and drinks.Overall through, Happy with tour. Worth Doing.
