    We had a lot of fun. The pick-up was spot on and the transfer times were not excessively long. The food was more than adequate and very tasty. Water was offered at all times. We didn't find the time at the individual stops too short or too long, they were perfectly timed. It's a total tourist spot, but because of the small groups of elephants, it didn't come across as that. At the waterfall, which is currently not a real one (due to drought), we were even alone. The raft ride was very relaxing, the sanctuary is nothing earth-shattering but actually very nice to see the turtles so close. Also is a good thing. We would book this trip again anytime

    Despite the tickets already paid for, we had to queue in a long queue for the booked time. However, the check-in at the entrance went better than expected, so the waiting time was much shorter than we had feared. The castle and gardens are definitely worth a visit. Although the prices on site, especially for the means of transport in the gardens (tourist train, bicycles or golf carts) are quite "salted". I might have to mention that we are a family of 6 and it can get quite expensive right away :-)

    Fantastic tour guide, who was so informative and helpful. We had a most delicious Thai lunch in the jungle at a beautiful setting. The water levels were low in the river but our raft “driver” worked really hard to give us a most memorable journey. The turtle conservation area was also most interesting, again our tour guide made it a great spot to visit.
