4.3 / 5

based on 6 reviews

The path started with an extremely unfriendly, downright outrageous guide. Fortunately, the very large group soon split up, in the end fewer than eight people remained who opted for the same accommodation. This is beautiful, really something special. A warning that there is no electricity would have been nice (only found out from the comments here), as I don't like camping myself, I found this off-putting, but it turned out to be no problem but gave the thing a special charm. The food surprised with perhaps the best Thai food I've had to date, the guide Bligh was friendly and knowledgeable. A highlight was Mon's own elephant, which was taken to the river for breakfast. The history and culture of this area can hardly be experienced more intensively in such a short time. At the same time it has something of “adventure” and fun. Are very happy to have done this tour

A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork! We started off in quite a big group, but ended up splinting to separate hotels, and so our tour continued with just two people, which was excellent! The Kwai Jungle Rafts were an incredible experience and I’d recommend to anyone. It was really interesting to hear the history or the hotel and everyone there was so friendly. Food was all delicious too.

This was a great day out in the Nature with a super friendly driver Mr. Chan. The walking trail amidst interesting noises of birds, gibbons etc was wonderful!. I absolutely enjoyed it. Good organisation and great timing

Martin the guide was very good and the hiking at the jungle was amazing, very recommended.

Our tour guide and driver were very helpful and we really enjoyed.
