Rude staff, poor quality performance. We have been to many elephant camps in Thailand and Laos. This one is lowest on quality standards. So if you have never seen elephants then it’s ok to visit else skip this one

I am doing this trip next week. I am very concerned now that I am reading these reviews. We booked through Viator- one hour elephant Trek.
