Nice experience but it is quite clear that the poor elephants were being abused, tortured and underfed. Not to mention a lot of conmen waiting to sell you elephant fur and also ivory bangles and trinkets at an exorbitant cost, nevermind that it is totally illegal in the first place. Don't go. There are better, more humane and proper sanctuaries where they treat these gentle giants better.

I really wondered what the big fuss was about from the animal warriors and now i get it. Please peopl dont continue to pay these people to abuse animals in this way.Go to the Elephant sancturies in Krabi where they actually look after the animals There is one in Ao Nang very close to this. You get to feed and bathe the elephants and learn about them and help save the older animals. Things can change if enough tourists focus on quality of life for the animals instead of riding. It's up to you to make a difference and help change the industry These animails are not looked after properly not fed right and left chained to trees for hours on end.Just look at your guide with a sharp hook to belt the aniaml when they need it to do somenthing and play foot and do tricks for the tourist. Please dont do it TO ALL ANIMAL ACTIVISTS i still wont join but i have opened my eyes and wont pay in to this industry anymore

We went for out honeymoon and our travel agent arranged this tour. We wanted to have an experience with elephants and learn more about them. We expected to bathe and feed them, instead we arrived and they rushed us into a ride and the guide barely explained anything; they use rough utensils to manage the elephants and it was incredibly sad. Afterwards, we asked about feeding the elephant and they charged us extra, a total scam! Plus they brought a different elephant for us to feed because they needed to use the other one for a ride. We should have done better research beforehand, if we knew this is how they treated the elephants we would have never gone! We felt terrible when we left. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND NOSEY PARKER’S, go to an ETHICAL elephant sanctuary instead, we learned after that there is a great one in Krabi called Phang Gna.

Our very first time on an elephant. We totally loved the experience and such a lovely little place to relax and take in the sights. The elephant that we cruised on was wonderful. The handler was great too. Gently nudged the animal when he wanted it to go and the elephant seemed at ease around us. A friendly manner too, asked about us and where we were from. Fed our elephant some bananas and got some great shots and memories. Then we went on a nice walk to see some of the other elephants and see what they eat and bathe. Got some small gifts from them as well. All round a really wonderful experience and a nice way to spend a few hours. Thank you guys for looking after us.

Good place for looking on the elephants and how they swimming in the river. Can give food and make pictures. Stuff very like their animals and do not harm the elephants.
