A wonderful experience! The coach came on time. The staff coordinated well to take us to the village in about 40 minutes from the city centre and the instructions were clearly given, in English. The coverage was as per promise - the botanical gardens, cultural show of about 30-40 minutes and the elephant show for 30-40 minutes. We got VIP seats at both the shows as part of this voucher which was fab! Going around the garden is an individual choice and this voucher doesn't cover that. One can either take an in-house shuttle or an elephant ride to move within the gardens. We took a shuttle and didn't regret. At the cost of 100 Thai Baht per person, it is a worthwhile expedition: besides giving a tour of the sprawling garden, it also has two stops of 10 minutes each to take pictures. The tour takes about 30-35 minutes.The food inside is very expensive and thus, carrying water and some snacks is advisable. However, no bottles or food packs are allowed inside the auditorium running the cultural show and hence, one will have to leave them outside. Oh you do get them back at exit : There are a few souvenir shops which can be a good stop for shopping. A memorable experience spanning 4 hours, from pick-up to drop back!
We had excellent trip with viator. The tour guide was very kind and suggested me some of attactive options we can select in Nong Nooch village!
The tour was fantastic! We got VIP seats to both the Cultural show and the Elephant show, both of which were excellent. There was also enough time to quickly tour the garden. Perfect half day trip!
Very good arrangement from Viator. On time, clear and very helpful (especially the tour guide, mr.Sid). The journey also very comfortable.
Excellent activity... i booked the half day.... should have done the full day! They pottery garden was amazing! The shows entertaining. Do not miss this. They also offer elephant rides here!
Travelled with my children aged 7 and 9 who had a great time , we liked it as well. These gardens are privately owned and are well kept and worth a visit. The skywalk was a great way to walk around the gardens as you are undercover and in the shade, it was really hot when we were there so the shade was great. The Thai culture show was nice and the Elephant show was great as well, not sure who enjoyed it more the elephants or the kids. The food and drink were well priced . If you have the chance to spend the whole day I would so you can enjoy it more and space out the Thai Culture Show and the Elephant Show. Amy our guide was great as well.

Excellent tour and loads to see - if you do one tour in Pattaya then do this one!
A good half day tour around Nong Nooch - pick-up was punctual, and briefings by tour guide were clear. However, there wasn't much of a guided tour inside the Garden - we were encouraged to pay and use the tram that goes around the place with a couple of stopovers for photos. The Garden was vast and with the amount of time we had, it was impossible to visit some of the areas that we had wanted to see. Nevertheless it was a good experience overall.
Interesting pace with good landscaping. Included in price of tour is a good and lavish Thai cultural show as well as a well trained fun elephant show. Being such a vast place, obviously not possible to walk to view gardens in the allotted short space of time of just under an hour. So be mindful that there is another payment to be made of Baht 100 to ride the shuttle bus around the gardens with 2 short stops for photography. Overall interesting enough tour but a bit more time to self explore the gardens would make this a much better tour. Otherwise be prepared to rush from one venue to the other and be able to find your way back to the parking lot of the tour bus.

Excellent gardens and interesting shows included as part of the tour with great seats for both shows. Venue is a fair distance from Pattaya but worthwhile, could easily have spent more time exploring
Fairly good, lots of stuff and little time to see it. Cultural show is pretty amusing and fun.

great day out. driver a bit late but other than that fantastic. gardens wonderful, shows great, loved it
We travel in a family of 6 adult and 2 kids. They enjoy very much but too bad is a raining day. We quite enjoy.
totally disappointed the pick-up arrangement, we were informed and confirmed to wait at Hotel Lobby at 1315hrs and yet the driver pick us up at 1415 hrs, one hour late ? we reach the garden at 1515 hrs, we miss the garden tour, what happened ?
