We recently returned from Phuket Thailand and had booked a half day safari with Junk Boat through Viator. The trip was for ourselves and our friends who were celebrating their silver wedding anniversary. We all had a wonderful day, the elephant trail was brilliant, as was the baby elephant show. The whole trip was very informative and we learned a lot. The junk boat was great, and the food on board was fantastic. On the whole, it was a brilliant experience and well worth every penny. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Phuket.

We loved the elephant ride! Hotel pickup was timely, the guides spoke excellent English. The several demonstrations of Thai culture were great: monkey training, elephant training, rubber tree tapping, and curry making were all demonstrated, and were fascinating. The furnished lunch was very tasty.

If you take only one tour in Phuket, make sure it is this one. The animals are fascinating, the staff are wonderful, and they are doing wonderful work to preserve these animals. Don't miss it!

The trip involved a lot more than just the fantastic elephant trek; we sat on a buffalo bareback, held hands with a monkey. The junk ride & food were fantastic, and the guide was brilliant. A must-do if you visit Phuket.

This tour was very well organised and an educational and fun tour. Would do it again. However, I did feel sorry for elephants even though they were looked after well.

Knowledgeable guides and a truly great experience, well worth the money!
Cheryl P Australia
We had a most enjoyable day. Visiting the elephants and being able to interact with them and touch them was a very special experience. We loved the relaxing elephant ride. Our guide for the tour was lovely and she was very informative. The whole safari was well organized, which is exactly what we have come to expect from the Thai people. This is suitable for all ages, very safe, and I would encourage everybody to consider this safari when you visit Phuket.
Tammy M Australia
An excellent experience. The tour was well organized, and proved to be a hassle-free day among very friendly people and gentle giants. It was a very interesting and entertaining day with the elephant trek, Thai cooking, rubber tree tapping, elephant show, watching how monkeys get coconuts down from the trees, water buffalo, and a great buffet lunch in the open air restaurant. What a great day! One minor gripe: there is NO air conditioned transfer as stated on the vouchers. This was not a problem for me, but is just a bit of misinformation for those who do mind.

Getting up and close with the elephants was great; I got to see how rubber is made and see the elephants do tricks. The trek was scary because we were up so high, but we were safe.
Andrew W United Arab Emirates
The half day safari was brilliant. We have two young children and they absolutely loved it as well. The guides were well informed and spoke good English. If you go to Thailand, this trip is an absolute must!
Greg B Ireland
Excellent trip! The kids loved the elephant safari, staff and service were both excellent. Highly recommended if you're staying on Phuket for a few days.
Jennifer N Japan
It was an absolutely amazing tour! The guides were very knowledgeable about the elephants and their environment. The animals themselves were very well taken care of, and the activities the guides had planned for us were definitely unique to Thailand. The lunch was delicious. I would recommend tipping the guides as they make so little and the tour really is worth that little extra something. Enjoy!
Catherine B Australia
The guides were great and the time allocated to each activity was perfect. This was one of our favourite tours.

Gavin M United Kingdom
Well worth the money, just the right length of time. A must do for anyone going to Phuket.
Helen H Australia
A must visit when in Phuket. This conservation group maintains the survival of the elephants. Extremely informative and educational! See baby elephants do little tricks, take a half hour elephant ride through the jungle, see a monkey collect coconuts and see how curries are made. Absolutely recommend this tour!
Edward P Australia
The safari was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I truly enjoyed it. One drawback was the pick up from port was 1 hour late. I had wanted to include another couple with us but due to the lateness of pickup they missed out on two more tickets. Punctuality is of high importance to me, even on holidays. Let me add that I do not consider this Viator's fault.
It was an excellent day - I would recommend this to everyone.
