Pickup was very smooth and our driver was incredibly nice. He brought cold waters in a cooler and got us snacks along the way. The elephant sanctuary was amazing. The elephants seem very well taken care of and it was an unforgettable experience. Definitely short and sweet, but you get to do all of the good stuff. The WWII bridge and cemetery were a nice treat too with lots of shopping and a museum nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, well worth the price.

it was an experience that you will not soon forget. Everything is well explained how to behave and where and what circumstances the elephants were saved. we had a super nice day with the elephants that got under the skin. Is only to miss. To be so close to such a big animal, to feed it and to bathe with it is indescribable. It was also super nice that we all ate together afterwards.

One of my greatest experiences ever! To travel half way around the world and be able to bond with a beautiful elephant extended family herd-- lovingly cared for by this sanctuary and be part of giving elephants love and care was remarkable and an eye opener to these magnificent, human like creatures. Anyone who can get there- should! And the program, transportation, people were superb. Enlightenment and unusually wonderful vibe. Literally, the best. Thank you. I posted over 100 photos and videos
