Both my wife and I carefully selected Nosey Parker, after hearing bad reviews of others in the area. We actually went there to check it out before booking. We trekked for about 2 hours, but we didn't go far and the elephants directed the pace. when we returned to the camp we fed them bananas which the elephants took from... More

This is not the way elephants should be treated! How anyway can say that they enjoyed themselves is beyond me. These elephants are clearly frightened of their trainers and I can see why! Elephants were not created for tourists to ride on them and think it's marvellous! Get out of your bubble because you're on holiday and look how badly... More

Before going to Krabi, I made few researches on what to do in Krabi with a kid and an infant. One of them is elephant trekking. And this camp has the most good reviews from the other visitors. Upon arriving to Krabi, we rent a bike, went to this camp on our own, just took 15 minutes from Aonang beach.... More

Visited here with our tour group as an extra.We were told that these particular elephants were retired elephants & the money you pay helps to bath feed & keep the elephants so we decided to go for the experience as I've always wanted to get up close to an elephant & to have a ride off one through a jungle...

This was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. FYI: We booked it though our hotel the Sheraton Krabi Resort so we had transportation arranged and lunch after. I am not sure why there are any negative reviews for this tour. The elephants followed our guides around like puppies and the guides did not use bull hooks at all. Caring... More

Over the years I've wanted to ride an elephant but I've never done it until now due to concern about the elephant's care and treatment. The reviews on here are a mixed bag as some are good and others not so good. All I can suggest is that you make up your own mind as I didn't see any obvious... More

Just visited today, April 12, metal hooks were most definitely used. I saw a man repeatedly hitting one of the elephants who was chained up and simply eating the palm leaves it was given. I saw no reason for it to be "disciplined". I wouldn't recommend. I found it very sad.

We visited last week and I have to wonder about the two previous very negative reviews - note they are by people with only this one Trip Advisor review each. We too were concerned by reports that in some tours the elephants are mistreated, but saw no signs of this here. Our guide was young and used just a short... More

Absolutely horrible. VERY rude people. Waaaay overpriced. We paid for 1 hour treking and bathing experience. We were on the elephant for maybe 30 mins not even. The "Bathing" we were only allowed to watch until we told them we paid to be in the water with them. All the workers seem like they hate their job because they are... More
