Pick up by Ken was welcoming and on time, he was very informative throughout the whole trip. The canoe trip was beautiful the scenery amazing and an excellent cup of tea/coffee made from bamboo. Overall journey 4 hrs. Would do this again and recommend if you’re seeking a short trip to Khao Sok

The trip to the national park was very nice. The nature and the tranquility are very impressive. Even with a small child, everything worked out great. The monkeys in the temple were cute to look at and we were able to support the monks with a donation, after all, monks feed the monkeys as well as street animals in Thailand. The waterfall was also easy to visit with small children and a welcome change for a cooling bath. As a drink for the coffee break (also a special highlight) there was a choice of coffee and tea. So you were well served as a vegan :) All in all a very nice trip. The guides were also super nice and informative.

7 hours to dawdle (in the car) to go canoeing for 20 minutes ,,,, Then to see the monkey temple, well, the time has to be killed! Receive mail, sturdy footwear or flip-flops, (I decided to wear sturdy footwear and then wait with it through the water)
