Amazing staff, and a fantastic experience. The whole experience was very hands-on and educational. The people were very informative and extremely friendly. A trip to Chiang Mai would not be complete without a visit to this place!

Review of: Full Day Tour
So much fun!!!! Also, they were really nice to the elephants. I am not particularly an animal person, but I kissed an elephant good-bye and thanked him. It goes down in one of the best travel experiences of my life, comparable to riding Arabian horses at dawn around the pyramids.

Had a great time hanging out with these beauties. We get to feed them and learn a little about them. Too bad we can’t do bathing with them due to Covid-19 which is understandable but would be nice to know early on upon booking.

This was one of our highlights. My husband and i both cooked a meal along with 6 others. Super tasty and fun. It was a HOT evening and the food was hot but we did have some control over that. Enjoyed the garden and market tour. Love that the school is owned and run by women only!! I think this is the one we went to?
