My Mum and I had a fantastic day learning to drive tuk-tuks and then driving them through the countryside to an elephant sanctuary. Our guide Oa was brilliant, he made sure everyone was confident with driving the tuk-tuks before allowing us to leave. There was no pressure just encouragement and once we'd got past the lack of confidence, we were both fine. The countryside is stunning, we went to a forest temple first and then to the elephant sanctuary. We had a lovely lunch of fried rice, then walked with the elephants to the river to bathe them. It was amazing! Then we went on a bamboo raft down the river which was hilarious, as we got stuck a couple of times and the locals guiding the raft had to get off and push us! The whole day was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend. I would like to thank Oa for being an excellent guide and Patty at Diethelm Travel for organising the trip.

We had a great day with Terry, a lovely guide from Diethelm Travel He gave us an interesting tour of the Palace, and helped lift my wheelchair up and down steps and stairs. We then had a river and canal trip which was fascinating, seeing all different kinds of houses cheek by jowl and I hadn’t realised how much wildlife there was to see, including monitor lizards ammeter and a half long and lots of birds. My thanks go to the guys on the boat, who lifted me on and off and kept us supplied with cold towels ( it was hot!)

Our travel agent in South Africa used them on both our trips to Thailand, and both times - 2 years apart, we had issues with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They offered a complementary tour around Phuket, they then tried forcing us to get off to shop at a pearl jewellery store, when we did not want to go in, they got very angry, made us speaking to the agent on the phone, who threatened us. First time April 2017, they did not pitch up for an already paid transfer to the airport, so we had to arrange in haste and almost missing our flight back home. Now September 2019, they again did not confirm again our pick up again to the airport. Hotel staff had to try and contact them, the phone number given to us by our travel agent did not work!!!!! When eventually getting hold of them, they insisted they sent confirmation, but this was NOT the case!!!!! So really twice bitten!!!!!!!! I would not recommend using them. Unreliable!!!!!!!!!

Our guide spoke good English. We enjoyed the boat rides and explanations inside the palace and temple. Our transfer driver to the airport both ways must have been having a bad day. Really needed a cold flannel, but alas either he has no English or there was no towels. It’s the little things that mean so much.

We used Diethelm Travel for our airport transfers as well as trips to Phi Phi Islands, James Bond Island and Phuket Fantasea. Marco was fantastic in arranging all of these trips and transport. He is easy to contact and even met us at our hotel to go through the arrangements for the excursions. He also had amazing prices and we will be using his services again when we return to Thailand.
