Our 2 days-tour in the Khao Yai Nationalpark was all around perfect! Our guide had a big knowledge and could show us a lot of animals (elephants inclusive) at the wildlifeobservation, the jungle trekkings were interesting and the food was delicious. We recommend the tour to everybody who loves nature and animals!

Bon was a great guide: knowledgeable, funny and helpful. The truck was great to get around in as well too. Food provided was very good (especially for a group tour). The only con was that for our ride back from

Our hotel in Khao Yao to Bangkok they forgot about us and we almost missed our next activity. We had to share a car part of the way with another family (we knew them so that was jice) and then transferred to an uncomfortable smaller car.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our guide Bon is very good and attentive. The pace is also good and not rushed.

Thanks for making the arrangement.

Wildlife treck was amazing, we got to see plenty of animal.

Our guide (Jum) was very experienced and friendly as well.

Food was really good.

The night safari was very disappointing: there were no explanations, and the driver drove too fast. I had to make him stop because he almost drove over a porcupine...

The drives around in search of elephants are long and boring. It would be better to do more wildlife trecks and go see the elephants if they are to be seen by another guide who would send an alert to everyone.

Amazing tour! Lek really took his time when walking through the jungle, carefully looking out for anything that moves and explaining in very good english as we went along. We got very lucky and saw an amazing amount of wild animals; from 3 types of monkeys to Great Hornbills to even a wild elephant!

Our tour included lunch/diner, hiking, waterfalls and a night tour. We enjoyed every minute of it!

Lek was very communicative and helped us out with wathever he could, including arraging a cab to Ayutthaya for us the next day. He has a great sense of humour and we very much enjoyed having him as our guide. This tour was probably the absolute highlight of our trip through Thailand!

We enjoyed our Khao Yai tour! We were there during the end of August while it was rainy and chilly, yet we got to explore a lot during the 2-days tour. The guide was kind to adjust the schedule on the 2nd day according to our preferences. The guide spoke good English and she was always cheerful and social.

I recommend visiting the bat cave and watching the bat stream, that was an amazing experience!

The tour was overall quite pricey (especially for the low group sizes), but I think the tour still deserves a 5-star rating.
