Thank you for a great two-day trip! When I read others' reviews, I noticed a few comments about the guides not talking too much. My guide Beer, and my driver Boy, were perfect hosts. They were amazing at finding the animals: hornbills, elephants, deer, barking deer, jackals, snakes, lizards, moths, beetles, the Khao Yai dinosaur. They didn't over-talk, but they were sensitive to my needs. Beer carried his heavy telescope, so that I could see the animals' colors and details from afar, and he took some great pictures from my camera for me. I liked it when he explained about the animals' habits and habitats. He is very knowledgeable and readily answered all of my questions. Boy's driving and sensing skills were outstanding. He has an amazing gift of knowing where the animals are, and I appreciate all he did to make my trip safe. I will definitely return to Khao Yai, and I will recommend this trip to others who want to go hiking. I can't wait to visit other Thai national parks. Thank you.

Beautiful experience! I definitely recommend this 2-days trip. Our guide was very nice and we appreciated the fact he wasn’t speaking too much but still he provided enough information about the park and wildlife. We could spot gibbons, macaques, elephants, many species of birds, varane, etc. Also, food was delicious!

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.
