What a fab day on this trip. Our driver and guide were great. Went to a small market. a stunning view point before joining the boat at the lake near the dam. Our guide was super. chatty , informative and asked us what we would like to do. There was just us and another couple so was super intimate which was great. We saw an Eagle, some monkeys and even a wild elephant ! The canapés and wine were a bonus. Had a quick dip in the lake and were told the history of how it was made. It was a bit cloudy to get a great sunset but was great all the same. Would definitely recommend. On the way home home we were asked if we would like to go to a beach restaurant for food. We all agreed it would be a perfect ending to a great day. !!

Great trip. Everything very well organized. Wonderful places and delicious food. Impressions from meeting an elephant are fantastic. Our guide Arisa and her driver organized everything perfectly and made us a great photo report of the meeting with the elephant.

Fantastic experience, very good guide and attentive to us. This two day tour was the highlight of our Thailand trip! The lake and its places is a magical place, the floating accommodation is wonderful, the food was excellent!
