I was more excited about meeting elephants than anything else in Thailand. This was the worst trip I have ever been on. There is lots of time where you are being held in little shops or cafes to try and get money from you and the staff aren't very friendly. We went into the monkey 'show' first. I felt nervous...

I decided to do a last minute half day tour. The hotel tour desk booked it only a few hours before the tour. Pick up was on time. Fantastic elephant trekking with sea view. Staff were very interactive and had a laugh with us. Elephants are treated much better here than at other elephant camps I have been to. They... More

We booked the UTV activity from the hotel...there were so many options and prices, but we decided to take the long UTV (900hp buggy during 2h). I thought that the normal ATV would be busy and not enough exciting. They picked us up at the hotel with a van (like other companies), and took us to the basecamp. All the... More

Dont book with this organisation!! We booked this organistation with a good tour operator, so we didnt expect this! The atv ride was nice, but nothing special. It was "just a ride", no adventure at all. We didnt stopped once, just go forth and back. At the end when we wanted to take a picture with the atv, they said... More

Had the same experience as other terrible reviews on here. Booked this tour through our 5 star hotel and did not check TripAdvisor. We did the 30 minute elephant trek, 45 minute big buddha, 30 minute Thai temple and meeting of baby elephant. We got picked up from our hotel in patong, then spent the next 45 minutes picking up...

Booked the trip here through my hotel concierge (at the Westin) and was surprised that with how horrible this tour group was! We wanted to do an elephant trek, see some monkeys and go visit the Big Buddha - the AT Hill trip seemed perfect, but how wrong we were... The elephants are in horrible condition and the ride is...

We booked this through our hotel which was 5 stars, so we assummed it to be a premium tour in contrast with their price. We spent most of the day driving, waiting and unorganized tour operator. 1. When we got to the elephant trek, we were shocked at how the baby elephant was treated. Their two front feet bounded to... More

Always been a dream to ride and elephant such kind beautiful creatures, but we stopped our ride 2 minutes in. Was not happy first off with the way the elephants were being treated not much shade and not enough water for 34 degrees! As soon as I got on I knew this was completely morally wrong, the 'elephant controller' was... More

I have not had more of a difficult and mixed review than this one. During the day we did the elephant ride, ATV and the Tree Top Extreme. Start with the positives, the ATV and the Tree top Extreme are fantastic if we just did these too things it would have been a great but exhausting day. The ATV tour... More
