What a great opportunity to get up close to some elephants. Really enjoyed my tour.
We had an amazing day,very well organised would highly recommend this tour.
totally fantastic, tour guide pleasant and knowledgable. elephant ride great. bring mozzie repellant
From the moment we were picked up at our Pattaya Hotel, it was total enjoyment. The interaction and closeness you experience with the elephants is second to none. The locals are an absolut joy and the lunch was very very nice. Would highly reccomend
absolutely fabulous. Everyone from M/S Apple and all on the tour were great. Am going to book again when I go in June 2012.
the trip was good from being picked up to being dropped off at the hotel. the elephant ride was great and the people where so kind and helpful the food for lunch as really good. when I go back to thailand I will book my trips with you
It was nice .The leader speak good English.Nice group .But I pay more than the trip price for the pictures and the CD.
The tour did not live up to expectations. The pictures make you believe you will be in a thick jungle when in reality half of the elephant trek is on city roads. The raft portion is a joke. There is a small lake with the raft at one end when you get on. Then two men guide you across the lake on a pulley system that spans the length of the lake - a complete waste of time. The ox cart ride was a return to the start of the trek. Our main guide told us that the elephant guide expected a tip, and the ox cart driver told us with the universal sign of rubbing thumb and forefinger to give him one. There was a tip jar on the raft. Our main guide on the walking portion was excellent - very knowledgeable with funny anecdotes. The lunch that followed the tour was great - plenty of food and something for everyone. All that said, it was still a fun day, and if you've never been on an elephant give it a try. If you have great expectations of being in a dense jungle - lower them.
I like the fact that we were able to have a picture with the baby elephant at the beginning of the ride.
I didn't like that I had to share my elephant ride with someone I don't know and thus take a picture with him. on other rides if you come alone you stay alone on the ride.
The jungle trek was ok not brilliant. Food was great though
