Awesome tour. No hassle and berry accommodating. Prakob was our tour guide and he was amazing. Great communication and patience and knows all the awesome spots for memories that last forever. This tour was definitely worth it and allowed us to maximize our experience with no worries about finding reliable rides or being taken advantage of. I definitely recommend this tour and if you are lucky you will get Prakob. The waterfalls were a sight out of this world and feeding and bathing the elephants was priceless. You can tell that they are well taken care of and are living happy lives. A+!
Great experience!!

What an excellent way to connect with nature and locals. My wife and I visited Bangkok for two days and immediately booked this private tour. Our tour guide (Preecha) was amazing right from the start.
You will not regret booking this

The best day! Super organised, eventful day. I initially thought the 12 hour day with so much driving would be difficult however, the itinerary was so well planned that the driving in between destinations was barely noticeable.

Our guide Ya, cared for myself and my daughter beautifully, even providing personal wipes for the toilet stops. We could not have completed this journey without her, she was so diligent and gently guided us with appropriate tipping protocol (tip the elephant attendants well as they take the best photos and videos for you on your phone which you will appreciate, they will capture the best moments. One of the highlights of the day (there were many) was using my new phase Ya taught me to say that my daughter cannot have cows milk. It was awesome to say this correctly and have the local people understand instantly and completely. Thank you Ya, this will aid my daughter and I for a long time.

The sites were all incredible, a genuine mix of history, nature and wildlife. Elephants were definitely the highlight, just experienced so much joy. We could not stop smiling, I would do this trip just for this experience alone.

The waterfalls were incredible, take thongs for the walking paths unless you have tough feet. Just a hint, if you don’t want your feet exfoliated by the tiny fish in each pool (they don’t hurt, it just feels weird), wear long socks. You may look ridiculous but not as ridiculous as jumping around like an idiot when they take their first nibble.

Overall, I absolutely recommend this tour and Ya as your guide. Enjoy the journey.
