We enjoyed our morning. We booked a half day experience, trekking through the jungle on elephants and then washing them. We had a good morning however I an left wondering whether one of the other companies offering the same adventure might have been better? We left for our trek on elephants though the jungle and proceeded to follow the highway where major road works were taking place, with all manner of earth moving equipment in sight and earshot. The jungle we trekked through was littered with garbage, and the English speaking guide spoke very little English. It appeared All Lao Elephant Company was not doing as well as it could.
I have to say, the highlight for me was watching others in the group was their elephants - hysterical!
I'm not sure how different the other Company's in town are, but I would recommend giving them a go.
