Excellent for those with young children who'd get bored easily. Our 4 and 2yr olds loved the elephant tricks and the short ride.

We knew that an elephant ride was a must do in Phuket and this tour was much more than that. We learnt about elephants, making curry pastes, traditional beverages and rubber trees. The tour guide was interesting and engaging. Lunch was included which made it very good value for money.

The highlight was the amazing elephants and the scenery. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting to go on a tour and see Thai elephants.

You must ride an elephant! For some, it could sound scary but not here. This place is extremely organized and pays attention to every detail. The guides are awesome and make you feel loved.

My wife was really looking forward to this expereince, and she wasn't disappointed.

We just did the treking and not the other elements that you can do. But the whole thing was well organised and great fun. It was good to know that the elephants have been saved by being at this park, rather than just being exploited.

A few tips:
Take good mossie spray;
Have a few 100 THB ready to tip the mahout;
Don't point out large spiders in the trees unless you are prepared for the mahout to playfully grab it and show you!; and
Don't bother with the DVD, but look at the still photos they take.

A good value half day tour with transport provided from the hotel. It gives a real insight into the traditional Thai way of life. The tour shows examples of rubber tapping , rice growing, and coconut processing. We also took a 30 min Elephant ride through some lovely scenery with good views of Chalong Bay. The tour concludes with an excellent Thai buffet meal
