ad to see these beautiful elephants mistreated. I went because my mother's cousin was adamant that we ride the elephants. I had read bad things beforehand, but hoped I wouldn't be too disturbed. During the entire uncomfortable elephant ride I was miserable. You get taken around some beaten track like a ride out of Disneyland in a dirty, rickety wooden... 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

We had a great day out on the Elephant Experience with Bangkok Day Tours. The trip started with the floating market, then onto the Bridge on the River Kwai, both very interesting. The main event was the elephants though and we had great fun riding them into the river and then around a jungle track. Leaping off an elephants head... More

My first time to ride an elephant with family, we enjoyed that much coz we love elephants so cool! After that we experienced also to ride the motor boat going to the floating market. It's a fun ride then you can see the residents selling different kind of goods everyday as their way of life. After that we stop to... More

We found the activities of this tour exciting, so we booked it online. On the day of... More

booked the trip a couple of weeks before coming to Bangkok after seeing many great reviews - was not disappointed! Bo met us at the hotel at 7 am with a minivan full of water and snacks and couldn't have been nicer. The first stop was the floating market, which although has all the same stuff as any other market... More

If you only do one trip when visiting Bangkok, this is THE one to do. It is absolutely fabulous!!! Our guide Bo looked after us really well and went to a lot of trouble to make sure she took plenty photos and video with our cameras and phones. The results are stunning memories captured for us. Cant thank her enough!!... More

If you want to have a great day in Bangkok, see the elephant and tigers, these are the guys you want to book the tour with. Everything they did for us was amazing! Beyond good customer service, it was extraordinary. I don't usually write reviews for these kind of things, but I feel I really want to give something back... More

Talk about a day! This tour, particularly the elephant bathing, was probably one of the coolest things we've done in our lives. The animals are incredible, and the opportunity to swim next to 10,000-pound, beautiful elephants was something we'll never forget. The overall tour, including the floating marketing and Bridge Over the River Kwai, was a great experience. Angie (the... More
