I loved everything about this trip and it was such a breath-taking place to visit. The van that picked us up was comfortable, the boat ride was super scenic, we had staff attending to our needs, the guide was super knowledgeable about caves, lunch was delicious and the resort 500Rai was just so relaxing. I really enjoyed the trek and soon after jumping into the cool emerald water for a swim. This was the highlight of our Khao Lak trip.

I really recommend this activity for a day in the national park! This is the opportunity to take advantage of it to 1000% through many activities: trekking in the jungle, bamboo rafting to visit a cave, boat to discover the park, swimming pool also to relax at the end of the day and canoe if we want it. We had a great guide Miss Pooky, who made us enjoy a great day! Thanks again !

The trip was fantastic. We had very nice guides. From the visit to the market, to the raft trip, to the bath with the elephants, everything was great. We were always taken care of, there was enough water and very tasty food. An excursion that can only be recommended.

Excellent varied day, doing things you will probably do once in your lifetime. Anyone worried about being on the rafts, don’t...the waters only up to your knees if you fell in.

Very exciting tour with funny guide, we had a lot of fun! 5 star absolutely recommended!
