What people are saying about Khao Lak

Highly recommend this tour! The “early bird” aspect allowed us to beat the crowds (as these destinations become packed later in the day). The destinations are absolutely stunning. Our guide Tuktuk was excellent as was the whole crew - they were very considerate in regularly making sure everyone was comfortable, being generous with distribution of drinks and snacks, and keeping things on time.

The whole experience was amazing !! The guide was very informative and friendly and the interactions with the elephants was unforgettable. From feeding them to washing them the trip was a once in a lifetime experience. I cannot recommend this trip enough and would love to return. Most importantly the elephants on this trip are well cared for and healthy !!

It was great! The crew was wonderful, the sights were amazing only downside was the big waves coming back from the speed boat but the captain did a good job around them.

Incredibly beautiful and the staff are just amazing! They really go out of their way to make sure you’ve had a great experience.

Our tour guide Oat was amazing. He was very friendly and engaging. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
