This operator should be shut down and closed for business!!! We were picked up almost an hour late and then our driver decided to make up lost time by racing and weaving through traffic to our destination which was 1.5 hours away!!! The white water rafting was OK except that you're 1 of 30 rafts hurtling down the river at... More

My tour guide on March 2nd, could care less if we enjoyed our day. She often could not be found and did NOTHING to make our tour "Memorable, Exciting, Fun" as guaranteed in the brochure. She was lazy and explained nothing to the group. Enjoyed the white water rafting, but the rest of the day was a waste. You want... More

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

Water rafting couldnt be done due tp pregnancy but we are grateful they informed us it is not safe and allowed us to chill out by ourseleves at the camp until it was time to proceed. The guys...
