The excursion was very good. The guide "Nain" was great and told us many things about Thailand. He took great photos and videos of us at every opportunity. He responded to our wishes and was also very friendly and personable. I would do a tour with him again anytime. As there were no other travelers we had a private tour at no extra charge.

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 tour. the composition of the stops has been well studied to divide the day correctly. Prepared, kind and funny guide who lent himself to countless photographic shots (necessary considering the wonders seen). A must do!

Incredible experience, which was highly personal for us a couple and the guide was absolutely BRILLIANT

Was one of the best days on vacation! We can only recommend the tour to everyone :)
