Such an amazing day! we were so lucky to find this tour. The driver arrived promptly and took us to sticky falls, lovely climb. Then a delicious lunch and off to the elephant sanctuary. it's clear that our lead guide KT and his colleagues, Tutu and Oon, have a real passion for the elephants. they were so engaging with humour, knowledge and how they wanted to improve things. The elephants were wonderful! we fed them, walked with them and got into the water with them. always felt totally safe. This trip made coming to Chiang Mai the highlight of our trip. Thanks KT and team!

Jay made all the difference with this trip. We really enjoyed the sticky waterfall that are (even if it is very crowded) and so welcome when the weather is so brutally warm. Jay made it special by guiding us and taking many pictures of us (allowing us to enjoy the water and the place). Jay was super generous in making a detour to enjoy the blue temple (a MUST to do). Thank you Jay for a wonderful afternoon, for your kindness !

Local guide, very kind. We had Jackie, a Buddhist Monk who guided us through the streets and culture of Chiang Mai. The delicious and plentiful lunch was the icing on the cake. The Sticky falls, a walk immersed in nature. Recommended 🙂

Everything went superbly, our guide Noi was excellent, lots of explanations about the places, the country and the customs. The meal was delicious and the activity with the elephants (which I was a little hesitant about) was really cool.

It was amazing. Best experience ever with elephants. So lovely 🥰 😍🐘
