Just as with the other reviewers we loved this. If you want a decent amount of time on the elephants including washing them (which is much harder to get to do than riding which can be done in lots of places) then you need to do the mahout training. Riding the elephant is actually quite scary as, at the risk of pointing out the obvious, you're a long way up and it feels quite precarious. Still,it is a great experience and the more time you spend up there the better. The trip through the jungle is on a shared seat and a great way to see over the foliage to some great views. If you get the change to wash an elephant that enjoys 'diving' go for it! My husband had this and it just means they sit with their head under water. It doesn't involve dramatic movement or getting thrown off and is actually very fun and endearing.
The waterfall visit is less amusing if the weather is poor as it was for us but there is a bar and we all just sat up there and chatted (don't order the lipton's tea - it's bright orange and very wrong!). Still, the boat ride is fun and it is a beautiful if rather busy place to see.
The guide was fantastic and we were very well cared for.
