    A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork! We started off in quite a big group, but ended up splinting to separate hotels, and so our tour continued with just two people, which was excellent! The Kwai Jungle Rafts were an incredible experience and I’d recommend to anyone. It was really interesting to hear the history or the hotel and everyone there was so friendly. Food was all delicious too.

A magical day from our arrival. We gave food to the elephants, we prepared their meal for them, we washed them in the river. We learn a lot about the lives of elephants and we see that they are happy. Everything was great. I recommend 200%. The excellent midday meal. Lots of choices and a snack at the end of the day.
