We had a great tour with our guide Keng. Great hike through the national park with many animals (monkeys, snakes, spiders, lizards) that Keng showed us all. Lunch was great and there was more than enough choice. The raft ride with fresh coffee/tea was great. This was freshly prepared on a fireplace in the middle of the river.

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

Fantastic tour into the deep jungle! The guide was such a great person. He even made us nice hand made souvenirs and let us get high with him with his kratom

Everything went according to plan. The guide was very nice and we had a great time. Always my pleasure.
