Amazing trip lovely guide who was very in formative and down to earth. Lunch was included which was very tasty and plentiful. The tours included rafting lots of opportunities to see wildlife a snakes and pythons in the trees. The turtle conservation and tsunami memorial were beautiful and the waterfall was great to cool off! Highly recommend this trip 😁

An exceptional guide with very very very understandable English! The visit with the elephants is just incredible 😍 It clearly allows you to create a bond with the elephant... We took the private tour and we absolutely don't regret it even if it's slightly more expensive
