This is one of the best days that I have ever spent touring. I can't speak more highly of my time. I was sceptical about what might be and I certainly did not want to 'just' ride on the back of an elephant. This was an interactive experience - at least, that is what I felt. I saw no mis-treatment of the elephants. In fact, the contrary. The mahouts were singing to their elephants and whispering to them and, not once, did I see one mahout use the small hook that they carry. Not once. I was impressed. It was much more than I thought it would be. And the swim at the waterfalls afterwards was icing on the cake. A great day and it only cost me US$45.00 which, to me, was a pittance compared with the pleasure and enjoyment I got from it. You should do this. You'll love the experience.
Next time I come it will be to do a 5-6 day course.
