My friends and I had a good time on the elephant trek. I didn't see any physical abuse from the mahout who was with us, he did have a hook but mainly commanded the elephant by shouting and being verbal rather than hitting the elephant. I'd been on another trek in Koh Chang which was cheaper, much longer and we... More

I went to along to this tour as I mistakenly thought I could justify it to myself. On the face of it everything looked fine. The elephants were in good condition and they wasn't exhibiting any obvious signs of distress. About 5 minutes into the trip I wanted to get off. The guy in charge of the elephant kept hitting...

When we made our elephant trekking in October I hadn't noticed the hook used by the mahout. So in January I had published a positive review (in french). Recently i saw some vids about the cruel way éléphants are tamed. So I checked my photos. First I saw that every mahout actually had a hook. I thought it could be... More

I was a bit hesitant about booking the hour long trek but was reassured by the hotel that the elephants are treated well. On arriving I was shocked to see tired, exhausted elephants with cuts all over their necks and badly torn ears. The rude and arrogant host tried his best to rush us onto the elephants to avoid seeing... More

Loved the elephant ride, really impressed with the treatment of the animals; working in Eco-tourism in Australia, it was my primary concern. My biggest issue was the staff kept asking for tips: took the camera off us to do photos, after feeding elephants, after the ride, after the elephant swim, etc... If you want more money, charge more for your... More

I joined a group at the last minute on a rainy day in While staying at Rayavadee Resort in Krabi. The grounds at Nosey's are lush and the staff was friendly with a great sense of humor. We sat in chairs mounted to the top of the elephants (all females) and road through the property for about 45 minutes, after... More

We had an enjoyable elephant trek but we were disappointed as we did not go through any river as promised. Also the pick-up that came for us was a truck which was not the most convenient vehicle for my parents to board.
