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.

Our guide Djungle Joe was very competent and an expert for snakes. The walk was amazing, especially the bamboo forest and the waterfall. We saw different reptiles like flying lizards, skinks, turtles and some wolf spiders - unfortunately no monkeys, only gibbons delivered their acoustic contribution. All in all we can strongly recommend this tour, if you are interested in nature. This tour was a motivation to book another one with Joe.

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.

Super nice trip with lots of nature. First a beautiful hike through the national park, followed by the best food I've ever had on a trip. At the end there is a nice canoe tour including a coffee break (made of bamboo cups) directly on the river. Our guide took a lot of time for us and showed us many other highlights.

I Enjoyed the trip with the guide james , thank you so much
