What people are saying about Phuket

Absolutely wonderful! There are other tours, however, I would book this one if you're doing this during the pandemic times and when tourism is still low. I was the only person doing the tour, so I had the two cute elephants all for myself! Maya was absolutely great, shared a lot of information about elephants and she took some great photos and videos too!! I wouldn't eat too much breakfast before the tour as there's lunch included and I have to say it's big and GREAT, definitely worth it! They also take good care of elephants, something nice to see.

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!

I was a little worried because the morning pick-up was delayed. The content of the application and the content of the tour company (Anda Adventure) were different. It was a mistake on the getyourguide side, but the tour company responded very kindly and organized the tour with the contents that I applied for properly. Overall it was a very good tour.

Maya was an excellent host. Such an intimate experience only 5 of us with two elephants, the bathing them was superb!

It was a very nice tour. The long journey was really worth it. It was a successful day.
