The day trip was simply great. We were picked up from the hotel in a jeep and after everyone else had been picked up, we went straight to the sights. The guide Mr. A was great and had a lot of knowledge about all the sights! He also gave us the choice of whether we wanted to go to the waterfall, which is currently dry due to the lack of rain, or whether we wanted to visit the Big Buddha instead. Great alternative! The lunch was also very tasty and the subsequent water fight in the jeeps on the way to the top view was fun and everyone had a lot of fun! We would do it again anytime! Simply brilliant!

A successful day with/with the elephants, the ride on top of the jeep was a lot of fun, the food and location were very good and the guides were very friendly and told us a lot, a recommended trip

The guides were great and funny. We really enjoyed the stop with the elephants. The water supply on the tour was excellent and the ride in the open vehicle was exciting and fun.

It started off a bit slow but then turned into a really great trip! Highly recommended

Great people , excellent value , really nice lunch , lovely day 😊
