We had a wonderful time with "The Traveller Outdoor adventure tourism". They had variety of packages to choose from basis your interest and time.

We chose the package which had 5km white water rafting, 30 minutes of ATV and elephant trekking. That's the best package which has all the activities in equal time proportion. The others have one of the activities for greater time limit than others.Must say they are highly organized tour operators and all their tour guides are extremely hospitable. they definitely know how to treat their customers well.

Anne our tour guide for the day was a pleasure to be with. She was the epitome of hospitality towards us.

At all points, she not just ensured we were safe and comfortable but also delighted us with several tour offerings additionally ( like a trip to waterfall which was not amongst the package and that too for no additional cost).

We started off with white water rafting where the trainers and the co-rafters were humorous, lively and fun to be with. They made the rafting an incredible experience. as soon as we finished rafting, a pickup car was waiting for us to take us for lunch. Lunch was an awesome spread of soup, omlettes, steamed rice, thai curries, coke and fruits. It felt awesome to see this spread cos we were the only guests there and they had made this for just the 2 of us... oh and the food was delicious...


From there we rode to ATV station. ATV on steep mountains was thrilling. The trainers are constantly there to support and make the ride smoother. after 30 minutes of ATV we were given pineapple butter cookies and coke. My husbands leg got scrapped with the ATV and the team there instantly got cotton, alcohol and iodine as a first aid measure. The team was friendly.

The elephant trek was remarkable. It amazed me to know how an elephant can tread through the narrow paths of steep mountains. however the act pained me. Felt like harrasment to the animal. if you ever take elephant trekking ensure that you take the water treads and not the mountain treads, will save the animal some pain.

After that we went to the waterfall, however since it was raining that day the water currents were strong and it was not safe to venture out there..

At the end of trip, not just did we enjoy and have a thrilling experience but felt pampered too...

Was surprised to see no mention of this tour operator on TripAdvisor, but better late than never... if you ever wanna go rafting, ATV, elephant trekking then go with the "The Traveller" - as their tag line mentions "absolutely unforgettable experience" - they ensure that we do have one...

Happy sporting...

We went with atvphuket.com on a 2 hour ATV experience. Wish we had done longer. It was a rainy day, but made the experience so much better. Very fun manouvering through the muddy jungle. The staff are extrmely friendly and very safety conscious. It was definitely the highlight of my trip to Phuket.

We took the 3 hour ATV Tour in Phang Nga and had an amazing time! We were staying in Patong from which it took just over 1.5hours each way. Phang Nga definitely seems the place to do it, scenery was great and riding through the jungle and up the mountains was epic. We booked it for two of us and luckily it was just us that morning, since it was low season, which made it more tailored to what we wanted to do. The instructors are great to have a laugh with and made the day really enjoyable with plenty of drinks along the way and food when we returned all included. Thoroughly enjoyed this day and would definitely recommend it. A tip for those who book it, do it in the morning, especially in low season! The weather is always better at that time compared to the afternoon when it tends to rain.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hr ATV Tour in Phang-Nga. Driving through a creek was lots of fun and the swim at the waterfall just gorgeous. The crew were very safety conscious and entertaining. We only had a small tour group of 8 people which made it a very personal experience. Our boys aged 7 and 11 said this tour was their highlight.

Note that if you are considering doing an ATV tour and staying near Patong that the Phang-Nga ATV tour is just over the bridge outside of Phuket and it will take just over two hours to get there. As we were staying at the J W Marriott at Mai Khoa it was only a comfortable 1 hour trip on the new mini bus.
