Very fun day - the elephant riding alone is worth making the trip - highly recommended
A long ride to get to the elephant camp - 3 hours. But, it is worth it. The Khao Sok national park is really beautiful. Especially, the lunch in the mountain lodge had an incredible view. The Kajak tour was superb. Really enjoyed this trip.
Loved it, tsunami museum basic but worth the 15 min stop. Elephants were amazing and enjoyed canoe especially not having to paddle myself. Food provided perfectly adequate. Good time had by all
Best tour we took in Phuket! It was alot of driving but well worth it. We enjoyed the Elephant trek alot. The tsunami memorial is not done yet. It only had the ship the washed up ashore and some pictures from that day. Canoe ride was relaxing. You just sit back and enjoy the scenery. Lunch was good as well.
Our tour guide Ann was excellent, the Thai government is still building the memorial where the navy boat was washed ashore once it is complete it will be impressive, the canoneing relaxing and no complaints about lunch. The elephant ride was nothing like we have experienced before the handler actually gets of the elephant and walks leaving the passangers in the seat (a little bit scary) but good all the same. Instead of going to Monkey Temple we went to a park there was so many monkeys there it was great.
All up worth every cent.
Fabulour trip - air conditioned bus - about 2 hours both ways but well worth the travel.
For those who have the adventure spirit in them (like us), they would enjoy the 3.5 hours one way drive. After that, we loved both parts of the trip, the elephant trekking which was outstanding, and the kayaking that was so relaxing. In between we had a great lunch Thai buffet that we loved too.
The tour was very well organised. It was a very long journey from Phuket (Kata) up to the jungle - around 3 hours each way and we weren't quite prepared for it to take that long. However the bus was comfortable and we stopped for coffee along the way. Consequently it was a full day but with 6 hours of driving!
Once we got there it was straight into the canoe, which was very relaxing and pretty amazing to be going through the jungle - and by jungle it really looked like something from a film - it was *that* perfect! The canoe trip was lots of fun.
The lunch was very good - loads of well cooked food and plenty to drink
The elephants were the real stars of the day - not only did they look really happy, they were real characters and it was the most fun to ride through the jungle on them. We had the opportunity to pet and feed them (they particularly like watermelon) at the end, which added a whole other level to the experience!
I'd recommend this trip to all ages - everyone seemed to have a really enjoyable day.
Our guide was very friendly, the drive was long but we were very comfortable. The whole experience was just brilliant. One of the highlights was our Elephant Trainer sang Thai songs throughout our trek. He also pointed out natural fauna and wildlife. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
The jungle was beautiful and the guide was very sweet. She did a great job of explaining everything. The elephant ride and the canoe ride was very nice. The only thing I didn't like was that it took 3 hrs to drive there from Phuket, but to get to the jungle there is no other way. It was worth it.
Really grey day out. The canoe ride was long and relaxing. Our guide was very informative and pointed out all the animals and sights. The elephant trek was fun too and our rider was very entertaining.

This trip was absolutely amazing, though buffet was pretty bad. Guide was really good at speaking English. A shame we didn't do this the first day as this guy explained everything about Phuket to us. Absolutely brilliant.

One of the highlights of the trip. Over an hour and a half on the river in inflatables and an equal time going into the back country on the elephants. They definitely do NOT put one on an elephant for a photo shoot and walk you around the paddock. It was fantastic.

This tour was just the best. The canoe trip down the river was great, with very friendly guides and amazing scenery and plenty of birdlife to be seen. The elephant ride afterwards was everything I had hoped for. Such a pleasant and enjoyable ride through the jungle on the back of a gentle giant. We even had the opportunity to feed the elephants afterwards, which was just great. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

The canoe ride is amazing, it even includes a coffee break in the middle of the jungle! Elephant trekking in the afternoon is also amazing. I felt very privileged by having this experience. I was also well-looked after by the guides.
Great trip! There was a lot of driving involved, which I wasn't expecting. The tour guide and driver were both great. The sights were incredible and very worth the time to book. I would recommend taking if you have a full day. If you have only a half day / are in Phuket for a short amount of time i.e. 2 days, I don't think this is the best use of time.
It was a very long day. We went on the elephants, what was great fun and after the ride we feed them with bananas. The canoeing down the river was very nice.
It was good. personally I am not regretful to doing that despite long hours being on the way. I really enjoys elephant trekking and canoing. The museum wan not a real museum though. It was just a ship left from tsunami time.
I enjoyed all the day's activities but it is a lot of traveling admittedly through scenic country to make it a long day.

We did this trip on my birthday- March 30th.
The mini bus was very modern and nice, but rather a long drive. The trip went well even in the heavy rain
