To start off - this is the best bang for your buck here in Thailand when it comes to anything with Elephants. The tour guide “Adam” is absolutely amazing. He is so kind and very knowledgeable on any questions you may have. His English is also very impressive so there won’t be any language barrier problems. Our experience was great! We would suggest this to anyone staying in Chiang Mai who would like to see elephants.

We booked through our hotel and had a fantastic day ! From the friendly hotel pick up to drop off the guide was very friendly and informative. There was only our family on the day which made it very personalized and not rushed. We fed and bathed two elephants and our guide told us all about them we then went to the waterfall, visited the karon hill tribe ( not long necks) had lunch which was fried rice followed by watermelon and was rather nice - this was included in the price. Finally we went rafting which our 9 year old son loved - this lasted approx 40 minutes. A fantastic day we loved it !!!

This was really the best experience ever! June our tour guide took us into his home village and it felt really heart warming. He had the biggest smile on his face the whole time and made the experience for us great! Elephants were healthy and happy. Waterfall was amazing. He ever took pictures of us the whole time and sent them to us!

Really annoyed at the previous 'bad' reviews. What was written appears totally wrong based on our recent experience on 23 August. Check the facebook page of the same name and look at the photos. Day after day of great photos and happy customers. We help keep these elephants safe from past bad practices and keep them fed. The whole tour included rafting, seeing and feeding and washing the elephants, lunch and a visit to a mountain village. AWesome day

For any travellers who have been before with this company it is not the same company these pictures do. Is not where the sanctuary is. Standards have dropped and they are not ethical with the elephants anymore. One elephant had a collar which they used to “lead the animals” (see the picture 1) to the water where they were forced to sit down.They also pulled on another elephants ears to lead them to the water there were men who were shouting at the elephants which didn’t seem right. We only spent around 45 minutes (and this is a generous estimate) but from that snapshot the five of us on the day trip UNANIMOUSLY agreed that this was not right and the elephants were not happy or well looked after. We then were taken to a village where we were encouraged to purchase items we didn’t want. At this point the whole group decided we wanted to go home. The tour guide called the tour manager who was very unhelpful wanting us to pay full price and insisting we finish the tour. The tour guide luckily said we were allowed to leave and we only paid half the money were expected to pay but honestly I’m unhappy I had to pay that much for an experience that should be ethical and enjoyable.
