I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Far beyond my expectations. Outstanding....Many memorable moments: from the home stay at Bangkok, to the food experiences, from the island hopping to the emerald pool. Maybe the best part was the people part: guides, drivers, locals were all very super helpful and kind. (more)Michael Fattore
We all thoroughly enjoyed every part of the experience and loved the intensity and variety of the well organised and full itinerary. (more)Caren Matthews-Lane
Most memorable were the palaces and temples of Bangkok, closely followed by the jungle walk! Best yet for all of us. (more)Barbara Chadband
Arrival at Koh Tao and finding the lovely coral sand beach behind the dive school at Chalok Ban Bay.
Then, exploring the fascinating underwater environment.
Go prepared to learn, there's loads of really interesting marine ecology information to learn as part of the Environment Management Programme. There are interesting and knowledgeable people there, who are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge.
Enjoy the diving, safe in the knowledge that you are diving... (more)Stephen Orwin
Thailand is such a big country and we feel that this holiday allowed us to experience quite a lot of it. We travelled with our two children (11,14) who absolutely loved the holiday and were so well looked by the Thai people. (more)Kirstie Fraser
Amazing vacation. Such a great experience filled with memories that are sure to last a lifetime! (more)Sumi Mazzarolo
We had the most amazing holiday and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the "local" experiences we had, from giving alms to the monks to riding through rice fields on bikes. We really enjoyed meeting real Thai people and seeing different sides to Thailand. (more)Rayner McKenzie
Helping at the elephant hospital and working one on one with Nam Fon
To book directly through the sanctuary's website. I could have saved myself $700 if I had done this. And as I now am in debt on my credit card from this trip, I wish I knew to book through the sanctuary.
Yes absolutely. I have also continued my work here in the US by helping to fund raise for the sanctuary.
10 out of 10, even though I got salmonella... (more)Haley Larson
I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. Itís hard to say what was the most memorable part of this holiday as there was so much variety and different experiences, itís difficult to decide what was the best part of it.
I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney
Wonderful. Travelling in a small group as a family with such a dedicated guide allowed us to see more & interact more. We were able to eat at small road side cafes and at the Phetchaburi night market, and wander around the Sangklaburi floating houses (more)Simon Daniels
We all have different highlights, but generally agree that the day we had a boat trip down the Maekok river, followed by an elephant ride where we got to ride the elephants like a mahout and then spent a night in an Akha village, was our most memorable day. (more)Taru Jones
Most memorable was walking in the rainforest following local guide in his shower cap and Wellingtons and meeting the jungle dwelling Sakai, and swimming in pool at top of huge and remote waterfall. (more)Jane Giles
It is hard to pick out one thing but it would include staying in the jungle in a treehouse, visiting some amazing temples, eating street food in an evening market before catching the sleeper train, treking in the jungles, canoeing down the river Kwai and the awesome beach on Koh Lanta. (more)Shefda Cattermoul
As our first holiday in Asia it was fantastic. Our guide was so friendly and helpful we really didn't have to do anything but have a great time! (more)Alison Hatchman
10 out of 10...my favourite parts were tube riding on the river and swimming in the beautiful clear water in Koh Talu (more)Francoise Harris
Loved each second of it. 10/10. (more)Sarah Marsden
My holiday was the best experience of my life, so much so I wasn't ready to leave and got very upset when the time came to leave. I fell in love my elephant Campion and Boonma and his family welcomed me with open arms. Such good hearted people. The experience with them added to my amazing experience and I would recommend anyone try this experience. I would give this experience 10 out of 10 there was nothing I feel could of been better except for me booking longer! (more)Debbie Field
Thoroughly enjoyed - The baby elephant playing-a real privilege to see! (more)Amanda Patrick
It was absolutely brilliant. The whole tour ran to plan and was extremely well organised. It was a great combination of active and relaxing and we had a marvellous time. Highly recommended. (more)Michelle Le Blanc
The most memorable parts were... Riding the elephants and seeing Angkor Wat. The lodgings at Ko Samed were also very beautiful...It was a very well run trip.
The most memorable part was the time with elephants!....Amazing! (more)Lisa Hele
The trip was memorable because it was so relaxing and we were thoroughly taken care of in the most serene surroundings. The villa itself was beautiful; the beds comfortable; the ac very effective and the food and drink plentiful and delicious. (more)Terry Forbes-Mitchell
My husband and I absolutely loved the villa and have nothing but praise for the wonderful setting, the people - Ten, Euwang and the ladies who cooked fabulous food for us and made us feel really welcome. (more)Geraldine O
Pick up at the airport as promised and whisked through the darkness to a fantastic, isolated villa, with the sounds of crickets and insects only for nightlife. Not a neon light or disco within many tens of miles. A stunning horizon pool beautifully surrounded by the villa and acres of grounds to explore. (more)David Easton
