We had already booked this tour not thinking about checking for any reviews. In this case, that was a good thing as we would never have booked it based on the reviews here. Our expectations were low. Just goes to show that reviews should not be the determining factor. As such we were expecting an abysmal day ahead. As we... More

We had an extremely early pick up from the hotel in a Tuk-Tuk style pick up truck with 1 other couple, we were transferred to a main pick up point somewhere on a main road in... More

I visited Phuket in July 2015 with my family, total of 2 adults and 1 young kid. My wife wanted to try elephant riding and managed to get 3000 baht vouchers from Anantara Vacation Resort. I read many bad reviews on Island Safari but we still went ahead since we could use the vouchers. It's not that bad as mentioned... More

We did the ox tour, monkey show, elephant trekking and show. Staff was friendly, the overall was OK, but the mahouts were using hooks for controlling the elephants. One the elephant had and open injure because by the hook. The mahout would poke the injure and keep it open, just disgusting. Avoid this place if you care for the animals.

Our guide seemed more interested in his phone then keeping his group happy The monkey show seemed cruel n unnecessary. The only enjoyable part was the rafting and elephant trek

Elephants , ox , monkey and staff are not happy , I can see sadness from their eyes , the staff look tired , I can't see anyone smiling. The tour is not well organised, most of the time i was waiting for their instruction. The thai cooking experience is terrible , people work like a robot to make us... More

The pick up from the hotel was not comfortable at all. The shows and activities were somewhat good but they could have done better. Everything on sale to buy is the double or triple of its real value including water. They ask for tips upfront!! But the rafting was the best part of it all. To some it up: rude,... More

Our worst day in Phuket by far! We were sold this tour by our driver as being a full day of white water rafting, elephant trekking, atv riding, monkey and elephant show. It turned out to be a day of waiting around. We were picked up and driven half an hour when the car taking us stopped at a random... More

I thought I was getting a great deal when booking (compared to the price offered by another tour company), sadly I now find that there is more than 1 safari park in Phuket, maybe Siam Safari is better, and worth the extra money? They give you a 30-minute window for pickup, so when our driver was over 15 minutes late... More
