  • Great experience, the elephants are well-tended, treat them very well and with respect; First, take you to feed them and then you upload and das a very quiet ride to the river where you bathe them and play with them, and back, elephants are the best! The tour included us clothing, very rich food and transportation.

  • Great day in the company of elephants and their mahouts. We feel that the animals are treated well and happy! We were really looking for a place where elephants are not objects. Thanks to Thai who taught us many things.
