The usual stuff: elephants with a mahout guy sitting on it's head giving the big animal orders using his feet and mohout hook. Seat on the elephant's back with room for two passengers. OK enough (the children loved it) if you fancy a elephant ride, but rather shabby surroundings.

The Elephant riding was a pleasant experience, safety was ok, and the guides was nice and friendly. The backside of the tour is at the end where every one is Truong to sell you something. We chose this place because et was only a 15 min. drive from Sofitel where we stayed - and we got what we came for...the... More

Ignore the bad reviews. For Thailand standards these elephants are treated like kings. Each elephant is allowed to rest and bathe after every walk. There is ample shade and food for each animal and the attitude of the place seems very good compared to others I have seen around the world. Go see for yourself. Highly recommend.

From the pictures you can get the opinion, that you ride with the elephants in the jungle, in a river etc.... The truth is that you pay 800 baths: - the elephant walks cross a small road to a nearby "forests" and walks through a muddy soil 10 minutes or stands motionless when the mahutis talks to each other or...

The positive part of this excursion were the waterfalls and being with elephants--beautiful, living creatures that exude a sense of kindness. The negative part, was seeing the brutality and viciousness of the mahouts on the elephants. (Is there really a need to have such a sharp hook?) Fresh and old scars were visible on the tops of the elephants' heads.... More

They said to our staff that it's possible to do those and we get water and snaks for free. Only want we got from that trip was sitting on back of elephant on chair. If we wanted... More

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
