      Songkran and great services.
      Were there from 13/4/25 to 19/4/24. Stayed at Asa Hotel and the reception desk staff are excellent, Ms Bo, Ms Didi and Mr Arm. Went there for Songkran and would recommend for those who have never experienced water festival to try it once in a life time. Make it one of your bucket list.

      Good experience. Personalized
      Great experience very personalized. The attention and well spoken English of our tour guide Maggie made the experience much better! She took many pictures of us ☺️ Our driver Yari was also great, we slept the whole way back. The elephants seem happy and well taken care of. We did everything on our time. We saw 02 baby elephants and 02 big elephants by ourselves (the other groups were looking at other elephants) so our whole trip was personalized.

      Sak is hilarious
      One of our favourite experiences we have had in Thailand. Sak our tour guide was amazing he was very informative and very funny! He is a top man! Very well organised and worth the money and the animals looked like they were taken care of very well. Food was a bonus too.

      Unforgettable experience in Chiang Mai.
      We booked a 1 day private tour via their website of ethical elephant caretaker followed by a tour of doi sathep temple. Communication was excellent from the outset. We were picked up by Yuung and a driver in a VIP bus and taken to the elephant sanctuary first. What a fantastic place it is. You get to interact with the elephants in a respectful way and learn so much about them. We were allowed to feed the baby of the group and her mother, then were introduced to the rest of the herd, followed by a walk through the forest with them to the river where we helped to bathe them. Then it was off to make some herbal medicine balls which we then hand fed. It was so special being able to get up close whilst maintaining respect for these majestic animals. After enjoying our time there, we were taken for lunch at a local restaurant which was very tasty and whisked off to doi suthep. We all learnt so much from Yuung throughout the day and they were very good company throughout. Doi suthep is a very old and much revered temple on top of a mountain just outside of Chiang mai. It was an interesting and educational experience. We all agreed it was a brilliant trip made unforgettable by out guides! If we had longer to spend in Chiang Mai we would have definitely booked more tours with them as they offer so many.

      Strenuous Walk to Waterfall
      The day provided an amazing morning. Maggie was our guide who was well informed and shared not only lots of information about the two temples visited but showed us how to be a good Buddhist - like being a part of the family. Lunch was satisfying. Being an order couple in relative good physical condition, all the steps going down that had to be traveled to get back up from the waterfall was a bit much especially in the afternoon heat! The young family traveling with two daughters had a great time on this part of the trip. Warning to older travelers - lots and lots of steps at the waterfall. Wish we had known before we signed up!

      Amazing day! 🐘
      We had an amazing day with Potato our guide, meeting the elephants was an incredible experience, everyone was very friendly and the elephants seemed very well cared for. The included lunch was very tasty and had more than enough food (both meat and vegetarian). The waterfalls were also super fun to cool down after muddy trip with the elephants!

      Elephant Spa
      We had a wonderful day. Avi was a great tour guide and he told us a lot about Thailand and the history of elephants. He is a really great storyteller and a funny guy. Feeding and bathing the elephants was the best experience on our trip so far and we even saw a baby elephant. The tour group was also nice and small and lots of photos were taken of us, which we received afterwards via WhatsApp. We will remember this tour forever. Thank you!

      Amazing Elephant Sanctuary Experience!
      What an amazing day! We think it was one of our very favorite days in Thailand. Our guide TK, driver and the crew made this day so incredibly perfect. We started our day with a wonderful and relaxing bamboo raft trip down the river, where we got to see locals and visitors enjoying a beautiful day on the river waving and smiling, as well as splashing us on our journey. The Thai people are so kind, friendly and genuine. Our rafting was followed with a wonderful lunch and conversation about the elephants. TK was kind, fair, passionate, open to every question and a wealth of knowledge. Our first encounter was greeting and feeding a mother and baby who was quite rambunctious. Following that, we walked to the river, got completely muddy, playing with the elephants in the mud and then washing ourselves and the elephants off. We dried off with a lovely walk with six elephants ending our day swimming in a river at a beautiful waterfall. The tour was even more wonderful than we could’ve ever imagined or anticipated! You can tell how much TK and all the people on the team love the elephants. It was not only extremely fun but educational. We could see their passion about giving these beautiful animals a wonderful life and sharing it with us. The elephants had previously been riding elephants prior to having this respectful life. Please do this tour and help end the riding and labor that some elephants still have to endure. We are so happy to recommend this and share how amazing TK and his team made our Pon Elephant Sanctuary tour such an incredible experience.

      100% recommend! We had the best day!
      We just had the best day ever! Our guide Noi was incredible from start to finish. So knowledgeable, kind, funny and made sure everyone was involved and having a good time. We started off with bamboo rafting which was a great start to the day, amazing views and even saw some elephants in the river! We got given a delicious lunch and then went to the pon elephant sanctuary which was wonderful, the elephants all seemed very happy and treated well. We finished off with a swim in a beautiful waterfall. Couldn’t have asked for anything more! 100% recommend!!!!

      Amazing adventure
      From the meeting spot everything was as planned. Amy and Tommy were great tour guides. They were experienced and fun. The elephants were beautiful and well kept. They hace Tom's of roaming grounds and good healthy food all around. We fed them and played in the mud with them. It was an amazing experience. Then we went to the waterfall to wash up. A bitchilly waters but beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour. The price is good and you get a small buffet lunch included.

    We pre-booked a two-day trip for a family of two adults and two children.
    We got a big car with a friendly driver (Mr. Pan) and a lovely instructor named Magi who speaks good English.
    We visited several sites but the highlight was the special elephant farm.
    We got to know and feed the elephants and later we washed the elephants in the river and everything was done in a pleasant and humane way.
