Can't praise this trip enough! My girlfriend and I were picked up from our hotel lobby at 7am by are friendly driver Lim in a very comfortable mini van with free iced water and snacks. Visits to the floating market and the bridge over the river Kwai broke up the journey nicely. Lunch was very tasty and took place in... More

This was a wonderful tour. I didn't realise when I booked, but it is a private tour. So you have your own private driver, tour guide & luxury mini van stocked with drinks & snacks all to yourself. I was thankful for this when it was time to swim with the elephants, I was the only one in the water... More

Soooo much fun/ you will not regret this trip! Bo, our tour guide, took a million pictures of us on the elephants and was so sweet! Lunch was amazing. Floating market was great too- great local art! Best experience with elephants.

I cannot put into words how amazing this experience was. The elphand ride was just ok, but playing with them in the water is something my family will never forget! Be prepared, this is a VERY long day - the floating market is fun for souvenirs, but negotiating and saying "no thank you" for an hour gets annoying. The tiger... More

Always dubious about mounting such large animals but this was good fun and there was a nice feel around the village that seemed to show the elephants were well cared for. We were taken by a elder from the Karen tribe who was our escort and even he said the elephants were happy.

This is why I love TripAdvisor. I read a dozen or more reviews before booking this. The reviews were pretty much spot on! The floating market was ok. The bridge on the river Kwai was cool, especially when the train came across while we were still on the bridge, but this day trip leads beautifully up to the highlight, which... More

We booked the elephant day trip a couple of weeks before we went to Thailand as the reviews looked amazing and this trip lived up to our expectations. Our tour guide (Na) and our driver (Joe) were both fantastic. They picked us up from the hotel on time in our own private minibus which was so comfortable and kitted out... More

Amazing experience one we will never forget. We got to ride an elephant into the water and play with them. A lot of very large elephant poos go by but the experience is so fantastic that you soon don't worry about it. After getting lifted up out of the water on their trunks you get to wash them and they... More

This was by far the best day of our whole lives!!! We had a great day and Sally was a GREAT tour guide. They picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the floating market where we had a blast! Bring extra money, though, because this market is more expensive then most in Bangkok. We were able to... More
