The place just look so well kept and elephants are everywhere. We have not been to this type of place and were really awed by the magnificient elephants. My chilldren(6&12yrs)have really enjoyed the ride. The elephants were given a treat at the end of the ride and they seem to have enjoyed it as much as us! I think the... More

It said it right on their brochure and I didn't see any reason to dispute the claim. The elephants seemed well looked after with only one rider per elephant (they are apparently loyal creatures). After our one hour tour was done in which i got to ride up the front and steer the elephant, i was taken on a personal... More

ELEFANTS ARE TREATED RIGHT! I come to this place often, it is run by a very nice and smart owner. It is a river side place, the dogs on site are friendly, the area is clean and beautiful to look and relax in, the elefant are treated very well. The ride is also fun, and you can swim in the... More

This place has potential to be really great - but there are a couple of things which sour the experience somewhat: 1) Poor treatment of the elephants. I immediately noticed two elephants tied to posts with chains around their ankles. Furthermore our elephant had dried blood on its head - something which I have noticed other reviewers comment about as... More

We were recommended Nosey Parkers by a tour organisation in Ao Nang. I specifically asked for a place that takes care of their elephants and was assured that this would be the one. The elephant I rode was a 35 year old female - I had never ridden an elephant before. I have ridden horses since a child and I... More

An accident waiting to happen. The elephants are clearly overworked and tired, they seemed miserable. Ours was exhausted. We were guided through a muddy, hilly terrain and the elephant slipped a few times due to exhaustion. We were strapped in, if the elephant falls over, you will be crushed. Me and my girlfriend were genuinely scared for our safety as... More

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...
