This was a major highlight of our time in Phuket. Fantastic experience and Gypsy made it so as our guide from the company. Her English was great, she was very friendly and informative and easy to approach. She gave everyone time to think and ask questions at any point.
the guide adam was very helpful and informative. great day very well organised :)
Elephants are so cute. Waterfall jumping was amazing, and the white water rafting was so much fun and so simple. The lunch provided was by far the best meal I had the whole trip. The staff are super friendly and funny. Don't forget to tip you elephant guide.
would have liked to been told in advance it would take about 2 hours by car to get to the elephant camp. was well worth it though. decent length elephant trek - approx 30 minutes and could ride in a seat or on the neck. could feed the elephant afterwards. rafting was loads of fun - but like the description says it is a low to moderate rafting experience. great for first timers like myself. we were also taken out to a waterfall for a swim which was nice. buffet lunch was delicious.
Elephant trekking is an experience one needs to try. The rafting was very worthwhile and the guides on the raft might not speak much English but made the trip down the river quite fun.

One of the best adventure i did. This was the highlight of my tour in Phuket. Enjoyed this like anything.
Fantastic trip well worth doing and I didn't have to confirm the tour when I got to Phuket, they contacted me.
The rafting adventure was a lot of fun, but unfortunatley I felt it was not long enough for the price we paid. The lunch after the rafting was good, the service was excellent. I was impressed with the safety aspect shown prior to the rafting. I think they need a bit more thought to the way they take the photos while rafting. Perhaps a photo in the raft prior to starting would b good, that way you could actually see the faces in the pictures. Overall enjoying and a lot of fun.
Excellent tour - great day out. Waterfall visit was a bit unnecessary though, crowded and we just seemed to be 'killing time' before the next activity.
This was an excursion of mixed feelings. Departure and pickup was about 30 late. During the 45 minutes of travel, it would have been nice for guide to speak about "something". Rafting was good but with pileups much like "It's A Small World" at Disney. Too many rafts too close. Good elephant ride.
The elephant trekking was fantastic. We would recommend this part of the trip to anyone. You get to sit on the elephant's shoulders with your hands on the head while the mahout walks in front. Other elephant rides you only get to sit in the seat. Awesome experience. The white water rafting was chaotic with so many rafts at one time, it was impossible to get a good experience at white water rafting. It was nothing like in the pictures. The river does not flow hard enough and water is let out of the dam. Rafts pile up on top of each other and crash into each other. They hold the rafts up for the photographers to get to the next spot. It's like dodgem cars. Would not recommend this white water rafting.
