What people are saying about Elephant Retirement Park Chiang Mai

Overall rating

(1 reviews)

This is a must do trip when you are in Chiang Mai. Our tour guide Ann was super knowledgeable, spoke fluent English, and made the tour educational and amazing. The volunteer Fran gave a wonderful and educational overview of their rescue facility. The elephants were allowed to free roam and weren’t forced to do anything and it was apparent that they were cared for amazingly. As frequent travelers, this tour was in the top things we’ve experienced. They also have an onsite photographer who takes amazing photos which there is no pressure to purchase at 700bht, however, at that price, it’s a no brainer. Ten out of ten.

We had an amazing trip! There was only 3 of us so it's felt like a private tour. The organization was really sweet with the elephants which was very important to us. Definitely recommended!
