We spent 3 days at Elephant Hills at the end of our holiday in Thailand. From the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave we absolutely loved every second stay. Our tour guide Nomg was very knowledgeable, friendly and more than happy to help, she made our time with the elephants extra special and we felt very...

Fantastic experience, they managed everything from pick up to drop off. If you didn't want to do a particular activity you could relax or do alternative things. Meaw was my guide for the duration, her English was excellent & she made me feel very welcome as a solo traveller. I booked direct with them & it worked out cheaper than...

I fully concur with all the positive comments in other posts. This was a superb experience. We opted for the 3 night package. Day 1 was travel from our hotel on the coast - about an hour, then the elephant experience followed by a guided canoe trip down the Sok river. Day 2 was a boat trip to the mangrove...

Probably the easiest five stars I've ever given. We were picked up from Khao Lak by a great driver for the one hour journey and introduced to Saow who was to be our guide for the next three days, she went out of her way to look after us and is a superstar. The highlight of the tour was the...

First of all I want to say that I had the intension to see elephants, but I wanted to find an organizer who takes care of this wonderful creatures. I did not want to ride on them. The ride on an elephant should be allowed only to its mahout, but not to the greedy tourists. I find this practice humiliating...

Enjoyed everything about this experience! The tented accommodation is right in the jungle and is comfortable. The food is Thai buffet style. The elephant experience is delightful. You do not ride the elephants here...they roam free and are guided by their mahouts. You get to feed and interact with the elephants while you bathe them.

We stayed for 3 nights and loved our time. We were impressed by the staff and the food here was excellent. If you want a luxury hotel room it is not for you as it is quite warm in the tents with fans. The elephant experience and trips to the lake and the coast were excellent. Sam and Linda were...

We had an excellent 3 night 4 day visit during our trip to Thailand. The accommodation was very good (posh glamping) and the food was also very good. My wife is vegetarian and there was a special meal for her at all times. The drinks are reasonably priced and the whole experience was brilliant. Your activities are planned from the...
