Had an amazing time at The Lake elephant nursery and sanctuary. Got to spend my morning with my new elephant friends, Anna and Yai and Maya was a wonderful guide and teacher. The elephants here are truly treated well and such a treat to feed them, spend time and even get into the water and help wash them. Plus, lunch was delicious and loved being able to learn and make Thai papaya salad. Yum! Highly recommended to anyone coming to Phuket!

Truelly recommended excursion hosted by the best tour guide (Peekay) I’ve seen in my life! Good value for money, considering the hotel pick up and bring back.

We thought it was great! The food is like on a dispensation for tourists, but apart from that you can see and everything is well organized.

It was a great experience! All was very well planned; food was great; the crew is super nice, helpful and fun!

Very nice and complex trip, although quite long for families with kids.
