The trip was fantastic. We had very nice guides. From the visit to the market, to the raft trip, to the bath with the elephants, everything was great. We were always taken care of, there was enough water and very tasty food. An excursion that can only be recommended.

Very complete and magnificent tour. Impeccable and comprehensive care. Amazing boat ride. Very long transfer in poor conditions of comfort. The mini bus is not suitable for 2 hours of travel.

Excellent varied day, doing things you will probably do once in your lifetime. Anyone worried about being on the rafts, don’t...the waters only up to your knees if you fell in.

We had an amazing experience! The company had great communication with us and our fellow travelers, and they were very kind, fun, and attentive.

Very exciting tour with funny guide, we had a lot of fun! 5 star absolutely recommended!
