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.

The price was very good and we really enjoyed the activities on the tour. You get up close and personal with monkeys, elephants, and we had the chance to hold a baby tiger and take pictures with it for an additional charge. The only downside of the tour was that there was a thunderstorm with heavy rain for about an hour and we got soaked riding in the back of the vehicle. It has a tarp covering it but the sides have no covering so we got hit by rain from the side and splashes from the road.
