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.

Lovely day in Khao Sok: hike in the rainforest with a skilled and sympathetic local guide, boat trip on the stunningly beautiful Ratchaprapha Lake ... and then a swim in the lake after a long hot day - wow!

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.

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

Incredibly beautiful nature and lots of background information. Must do!
