The company offers various lengths of programs but beware is the cruises ships are in their groups seem to move to the front of the line. The transport ion varied from the back of a covered pick up truck to air conditioned vans. The various exhibits do give you onsite to rural Thailand. The park on Phuket is getting a... More

The place was clean but nothing felt authentic about it. We did this excursion from the ship and felt it was the most horrible excursion of the trip. During the elephant show, the woman screamed things at the elephant we could not understand and the whole thing looked demeaning. The elephant ride was ridiculous, nothing more than riding in a...

If you are looking for an adventure, forget it. Everything takes place in a man made clearing. The ride was not through jungle but just up and down some slopes. Ok for young kids as first experience with village life and elephant rides. Pity the animals especially the 2 monkeys on chain performing tricks for us. After the show, they... More

We paid 4500 baht for three adults and two children. Got there at 10.10 and had finished the whole experience by 11.50. Home by 12.20 instead of the 2pm promised time. Ox ride was three minutes around a track, elephant ride was very enjoyable and the show was funny and they included the kids! However the monkey show was appalling,... More

My wife and I went here today. Checked out of our Patong hotel with a 10 am pickup by our private tour guide for 30-minute elephant trek, before a shopping stop and 3 pm domestic flight. I did not do any comparison shopping or investigation into treatment of the elephants, but what I can say is we loved the ride... More

The "safari" is a tour in a fake and dirt Thai village,45 mins ( more or less) of nothing. The "elephant driver" was unfriendly and,at the end of the trip gives you a necklace made by Palm leaves...
