What people are saying about Chiang Mai

Great experience getting up close with these gentle giants! A must do!

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Thailand. It’s such a fun day! We started off by playing with the elephants. We then fed them and jumped in the river with them, giving them a mud bath and wash. We also made vitamin balls for them. We were very lucky as we were the only ones on the morning tour, so we had all 5 elephants to ourselves! Our guide (Mai) was superb at explaining everything and even arranged transport to our next activity! We brought a change of clothes but you don’t need this as full uniform is provided including shoes, you’ll only need a change of underwear as this will get wet and muddy in the river. Even soap is provided. The half day tour is just the right amount to fully enjoy and not get bored. This is a must do when in Thailand and I am glad I left this for last as it was certainly the highlight of our trip. This was probably our best tour ever!

Amazing hike in the jungle stunning views from the top!

We were the only 2 people going on this day, which was a great surprise! The guide, Mr. Kam, was patient with us, and explained everything we needed to know. He had a vast knowledge of the jungle, buddhism and thai culture. The hike was extremely beautiful and the lush green forest was stunning to walk in. The view from Doi Suthep should not be missed, if you are in Chiang Mai! For lunch we were served a really good padthai. After lunch we went to a waterfall nearby. There were no other people at the waterfall - not a single soul besides us. It was so nice! And great to get away from the hordes of chinese at Doi Suthep. We dont have a single bad thing to say about the trip. We highly recomend!

It was a fantastic experience learning a little about the elephants.

The visit with the elephants will be one of the most memorable moments of my life. There were only twelve of us who fed, bathed and gave vitamin balls to five rescued elephants. The elephants pretty much roam free controlled only by their mahouts vocal commands. It's obvious the elephants are very well taken care of. Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us the elephant's names and personalities. We also learned some of the common vocal commands that we could try while we there. Literally the most touching experience was petting their trunks and telling them they were a good girl ("dee dee"). I would highly recommend this experience.

We highly recommend this incredible experience!

Our family (kids 18 and 11) enjoyed every minute of this fantastic day. Our guide Jakkie was knowledgeable, kind, and took the initiative to take pictures for us so that we could enjoy the interactions with the elephants. This was our kids’ favorite experience. Feeding and bathing the elephants was the highlight. We enjoyed seeing them in a natural non-commercial/non circus-like setting where they are well cared for. Our driver Adull was terrific and got us safely up the mountain to Wat Doi Suthep—also a memorable and interesting experience.

Unforgettable experience in the nature with elephants.

Unforgettable experience with elephants in their natural environment. Mr Tee (our guide) was smily, pleasant, friendly, helpful and he gave us a lot of information about Thai culture and religion. Each one of us had an elephant to feed, clean and associate with. Also in the beginning, they reached us a lot about elephants. Mr Pan(our driver) and Mr Tee were very flexible with the time spending in the activities and they volunteered to drive us to extra activities. MUST TRY IT!
