This trip was one of the highlights of our trip through Thailand. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel we were treated very well. The crew is super cool and my compliments for the enthusiasm and knowledge that everyone has for the jungle. They are small groups and a lot of thought is given to what you want to see as a customer. The food was also very tasty and the accommodation was also in a prime location. You have to keep in mind that you get the real wildlife experience, buy leech socks for the hike and make sure you have sturdy shoes and a waterproof bag. We also expected that it would be a kind of safari, like in Africa. But because the forests are sheltered, the chance that you will see an animal is very small. We have seen an elephant, monkeys, birds and many impressive insects. The wildlife is also amazing. My compliments to the staff and I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Es war einfach unglaublich..die Naur ein Traum, alles bestens organisiert..das Resort so schön, das Essen toll sowie die dazugehörigen Snacks und immer Getränke...und das beste: unser Guide ;) Absolut zu empfehlen...das nächste Mal werde ich min. 2 Nächte im Tree House verbringen

Those were great experiences! The 2 days cleaning/bathing with elephants, by boat on the river and lake, cave/rainforest hike and the spectacular overnight stay in the tree house were very well organized. We can only recommend the tour. Marion and Rainer

Great tour with great experiences. A lot of information. Individually responded to queries and organizational matters. More offered than expected :-)

It is a very nice tour through this area. Just make sure you have good shoes that can get dirty!!
