The only reason I am giving 4 out of 5 stars to this is the fact no one spoke to us during our whole experience. When we arrived, we were simply pointed onto a platform where there was an elephant stood next to it. It would have been useful to know what we should have expected, and how the guides... More

My partner and I did this trek after seeing the great reviews on Trip Advisor and could not have been more disappointed. The driver picked us up from our accommodation in Patong which cost less than a return taxi fare so that was great however we were truly saddened when we arrived. All the elephants are chained up and standing... More

We went on the 50 minute trek and once we got to the top of the hill the mahout got off and let me sit on the elephants head and guided him all the way back down the mountain by voice command. It was soooo cool.

came here based on reviews and most of what is said is true.... there is a young elephant out front that seems a bit freaked out but maybe this is how they train them? We went in the rain which was a bit of a shame but it was a good climb never the less with a few slips adding... More

As part of my bucket list, i always wanted to go on an Elephant trek. A courtesy mini van picked us up promptly from our hotel. The actual location is just 10 minutes from Kata Beach. We arrived around 10 am and there was no one else there which allowed us to get more attention from the guide. We decided... More

We loved this place. We took our three children there and had the 50 minute trek. The guides were lovely and took heaps of photos for us and the elephants were really calm and seemed very well cared for. A beautiful experience.

Had a great time, elephants are chained when not being used but I suppose they can't let them comp,weekly roam free! Tong was our guide and took loads of pics whilst we were on the elephant! He was great. Young elephant chained at the entrance and was a bit off putting but Tong explained that if he was let loose... More

Closer than most elephant riding opportunities near Patong and with a good value ride and pickup/drop off shuttle made this a no brainer. Having previously ridden an elephant in Bali (which we felt was a better and longer journey taking in communities as well as a venue for lunch) we took the opportunity to share this experience with inlaws. This... More

Really value for money, just 800 baht for a 30 minutes ride, +200 with hotel pickup. Went there in the morning to avoid the sun, trek through the forest with highs and lows, interesting ride with little bumps. You can even sit freely on the elephant's head if you dare- it was really an experience! Trainer will lead you down... More
