I doubt anyone on here will be able to tell you differently to the actual company website but it might be worth calling them, they speak pretty good English. It is very far away from the sanctuary though so I would be surprised if they do, maybe they would for a fee if you offer? I would imagine a taxi would only cost around 600/700 Baht though (about 12 pounds) so it's not too bad.
Absolutely go though, it's a lovely experience and the Elephants are so beautiful.
Sorry I can't be more help!

Hello, Samui Sanctuary doesn't do elephant trekking. Apart from feeding them the sanctuary has a policy of letting the elephants approach you, not forced into human interaction. You can book online or we booked through buffalo tours who collected us from our resort. It was a bit $$$ than other elephant attractions but it goes towards the sanctuary and the elephants. We love elephants and it such a joy seeing them allowed to just be elephants not tourist attractions. Hope this helps ☺
