My fiance and I did the 2 hour tour because we weren't sure about the full day or overnight ones. Now, after doing this, I would go back for a month. After learning 5 or so commands, we fed the elephants. Then we rode them bareback through a narrow jungle trail which led to a river. We got off the elephants and had the opportunity to bathe and play with them. We rode them back to the starting point and got to see and play with a baby. It was an awesome experience and I highly recommend it. They seem to care a lot about the animals and although they use hooks, the elephants were not scared and seemed very well taken care of.
