Reviews for Thailand family tour, elephants and Islands


review 8 Jan 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I think it was being away together with our family somewhere exotic and adventurous and making memories but I was most taken by going to the elephant sanctuary and living in a solar powered beautiful lodge right in an elephant enclosure. I still can't believe that we got to do that!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I feel like we were a little bit off the beaten path and I love that about this trip. I would encourage others to go with the professionals at the agencies who planned our trip because they know their locations the best and can find some really unique settings.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I do feel that local people benefitted and I felt that the lodges attempted to reduce environmental impact in the ways they could. It was nice not to stay at any giant corporate hotels and to trust that someone has researched the "responsible-ness" of the hotels to the extent you can. I do know that our time at the Wildlife Friends Foundation of Thailand supported conservation and that our agency, donates towards conservation but I'd love to have done it even more!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was excellent. We were all really happy, learned a lot, met great people, saw inspiring things happening with wildlife, and felt well taken care of. It was a comfort to know that we had planned our trip as responsibly as was possible for us by using your organization. Thank you!
