My fiancee and I had a great time. We took the 50 minute trek, and for about 1/3 of it went solo as the guide walked on foot so he could snap pics of us. The animals seemed well taken care of, and, unlike other elephant treks I've done, I didn't feel the elephant was stressed or upset.
The guides and staff were very helpful and I would recommend it. We also had our hotel hire a driver for us, who then took us to a few other sites (Big Buddha, shooting range). Best to negotiate a flat hourly rate ($500 baht).
As for the elephant trek, grab a taxi and check it out! (Bring a camera!)
