Ethical Tourism to the Elephant's Home in Kanchanaburi (Day Trip from Bangkok)

★★★★★★★★★★

5.0

Amazing

Boat was great. I am very glad that he was able to change the schedule, so instead of half day, we spent the whole day at the sanctuary. Being so close to the elephants was an amazing experience.

Excellent Tour!

Kittichai was an excellent guide. He had good knowledge of the history and culture and was able to articulate the nuances of the culture and religious aspects. He was also attentive to the needs of the group and the whole tour was well-paced. I would highly recommend Kittichai.
